Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Looks to me as if Piccolo_Daima is just repeatedly regurgitating his same argument in the thread as to Piccolo Daimao's and Jr's connection and going in circles with a fan translated version that is not officially recognized and proven inaccurate as evidence. Fan translations/scanlations do not trum...

Re: Serious Dragon Ball Questions For Fans About The Voice of Goku

As to the first point, it would indeed be kind of strange especially with Masako Nozawa given that she has voiced Goku (and his sons, father, descendant.etc) for well over thirty years and become so ingrained and identifiable with him more than probably any other role that she's played in her fifty ...

Re: On the subject of missing insert songs in Funimation's dub

My own theory on this thing is that it has something to do with the multi generation masters FUNi was given by Toei back in the early 2000's when they were starting with dubbing the show to air on Cartoon Network/Toonami, as in for some reason some songs are missing while others are in fact there in...

Re: Why didn't Funimation just continue the level sets for the 30th anniversary?

Quite simply, they just want to put in the absolute bare minimum amount of effort at the lowest cost and most of their releases (barring the Dragon Boxes and Level sets) since 2007 clearly show that in spades and the 30th anniversary BD set is just a continuation of the same mindset, and it really m...

Re: The Trimark (BLT) Dub of Dragon Ball

My primary issues with the 2005 redubs of Z movies 1-3 lie with the previously mentioned alterations made to the scripts that were already done very well in the Pioneer versions and also removing the insert songs for some reason which makes Gohan's inebriated scene as Nikki chases him around Garlic ...

Re: The Trimark (BLT) Dub of Dragon Ball

The answer, as I'm sure you understand, is to have all of DB dubbed with the in-house cast. The really weird part is the script changes (damn near none of them are for the better). Why, just why did they feel the need to change the scripts of those three movies at all? Has anyone brought up how the...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Oob is Boo though? Just reincarnated and cleansed of evil. With Daimao to Jr it’s more the father becomes the son thing. The holy trinity metaphor between Daimao, jr, and Kami is most apt. With Boo to Oob it’s your standard reincarnation. Boo was reborn as Oob. Personally I never considered them to...

Thanks so much for this! These were awesome to see and I hope there are more rarities out there. Hey no trouble, i enjoy this kind of stuff with seeing these old things from back during the series' original run on TV that are not available commercially on any home releases even on the Dragon Boxes.

Re: DB could work as Cartoon Series?

Quite frankly no, because i think it has worked best as an anime and would never lend itself well in terms of the Western style of animation commonly used here in the U.S. Interestingly enough, that very thing was almost very nearly done to Sailor Moon back in around 1993 or 1994 by a company called...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

You keep ignoring this scene https://i.gyazo.com/8a002673b9ccf6a7e3d0446742c3dadd.gif Why was Daimao talking through Piccolo's Jr body? How the hell could he do that if they're not the same being? That's not at all how I interpreted this scene. For me, that meant that "oh hey that evil you thought ...

Re: Is Goku and ChiChi's marriage turning out terrible a gag?

normally you would expect characters fullfilling childhood romantic promises to have a happy ending so it would be a subversion of that. Chichi and Goku’s relationship was always a gag. Chichi knew nothing of romance other than what she read in her teen magazines. Chichi thought she had to become G...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Yes. I know Dragon Ball isn’t the most well thought out and carefully planned out story and much of it falls under “making it up as I go along” category of writing but there was still some semblance of Toriyama planning ahead for the next arc. Piccolo and Kami’s alien convo at the 23rd Budokai was ...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

First of all, the reincarnation transfer whatever happened a full arc before Toriyama even came up with the idea that their link would get rid of the Dragon Balls: that was only invented for the end of the 23rd TB to add extra tension to the fight between Goku and Jr. Not only that, but it takes a ...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Overall they pretty much are, though as KBABZ said after Goku defeated him at the 23rd Budokai he was basically dormant for that span of time between then and the start of the Z portin of the story. It seems at some point around the Namek arc he changed even more so than he'd already up to that tim...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Didn’t they straight up say he was reincarnated? Yeah that was the big scene where Jr. says (in the dub) "I am King Piccolo, reincarnated!!". I still feel that they are separate individuals despite this, especially since even the manga begins treating them that way. Jr. is at first dead-set on cont...
