Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Sorry for committing necromancy again on this thread, but do you guys think Funi will ever take this 30th set, and strip it down into a future consumer level re-release to maybe retire/replace the 2014 season sets? All they have to do is get rid of the fancy art book, take the Goku figurine out, an...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Finally picked up the first two volumes of the Super manga on my most recent shopping run at Wal-Mart, and thus i decided to get a head start while still in the process of gradually collecting the original series' run. Both of them were pretty cheap overall, certainly much less than most of the boo...

Re: People who have managed to have extremely low contact with the manga.

Hah! I've never even SEEN all of Dragon Ball. Well, the Z portion, I mean. At least, not in Japanese. I got up to the Majin-Boo arc of the animation. As for the comics, tho, I think I only got to... maybe the Demon King Piccolo arc. And I own it all , too. Haha. But my reason is that I'm trying to ...

Re: Is InuYasha A Shojo Dragon Ball?

I want to see more 'boys comics made by women' because I find that it's a really unique mix. Mind you, I guess I'm a woman that likes the write the kinds of stories usually done in Japanese boys' comics. One of these days I should probably sit down and read something in full by Takahashi Rumiko. :l...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I know right, it really sucks. The Dragon Boxes weren't an easy or ideal option to go with because of how their after market prices spiked after going out of print, but at this point i really didn't have any other choice for getting a consistent collection of DBZ in terms of non faux widescreen rel...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

As i said on the previous page, they have made enough 16:9 DBZ releases (as incorrect as that format is) to cater to those fans who prefer it to fill their widescreen TV's. While at the same time leaving the people who want the show in it's proper 4:3 aspect ratio high and dry given the previous re...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 28 - DB episode 126-130 (CURRENT WEEK)

As i have mentioned previously, this is by far my favorite bit of filler of the original series. Unlike the majority of DBZ's barring some exceptions (Gohan's wilderness training, Anoyo-ichi Budokai.etc) this actually feels like it goes along with the manga's canon material and gives us a bridge bet...

Man shame your player ate the old school fansub, Mike (This was one of the biggest downsides about magnetic tape formats like VHS and Betamax and the machines which played them). The same thing happened to a few cassettes i'd had when i was a kid and it really sucked because trying to remove the cru...

This is getting tediously long-winded, so I'm spoilering this so as to not subject those who don't care to it. All the points in that same video are the same ones I've been using. If you are so confident in your BS views then you wouldn't have anu issues watching the video in order to debunk it. If...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 27 - DB episode 121-125 (CURRENT WEEK)

My guess would be that Ma Junior conjured up the outfit himself, as a result of his Mazoku/Namekian abilities. That's plausible given that he makes some for Gohan later. Huh, Ma-Junior's very first spell! Indeed! I didn't think of that! :) If you can remember which episode specifically Funi's first...

The Heavenly Training episodes are another good example of filler, much like the Solo Training material before the 22nd Budokai which i thought expanded the story and did stuff which was only briefly touched upon in the manga and serves as a great transition over to the next tournament and Goku as ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 27 - DB episode 121-125 (CURRENT WEEK)

With this we reach the conclusion of the Piccolo Daimao arc, and an exciting conclusion it is because they make it seem as though Goku is all but crippled and defenseless but then reveals his left arm is still unaffected. Fortunate for sure, because that was a huge mistake on Daimao's part and makes...

Could he just wish for that using Porunga? It's not clear.

I don't see why him turning SSJ4 would break the wish
I'm just guessing here, but surely he could've reversed the wish using Polunga but who knows. I don't see that as being something he couldn't grant.

Re: How would you have handled GT?

I think the big problem with Goku being a kid for the entirety of a sequel series is that it just comes across as too gimmicky. It doesn’t have any purpose in the story beyond the initial arc. Yes, and Goku still being regressed to his child body really becomes almost a pointless afterthought espec...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

I really don't get skipping over the original DB series to Z either, because in doing that you're passing a large chunk of the manga's story and a lot of the things which are established here that are revealed later. Agreed. I think it's just that a lot of westerners just grew up on Z, and if they ...

Agreed. Whether you like Funi's dubs, Ocean's dubs, the Japanese version, the manga...
