Re: The End of the Blue Bricks?

It's easily possible that COVID-19 meant that Funi decided to not prioritize the production of one of their low-sellers, even if it is in the Dragon Ball family. They're all out of stock now. You could be right, but if Spain was going to be "the first" country to release DB on Blu-Ray, hopefully it...

Re: The End of the Blue Bricks?

I mean, it's been just over a decade now (Season 1 came out back in September 2009) since they were first released here and have been the primary versions of the original series available since then, perhaps FUNi is reevaluating it or then again maybe not. We don't know at this point what the BB's s...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

It would have been incredible if they'd included the full edited OG Funi dub too, but to the masses there isn't enough to differentiate that from the remastered dub, which isn't that different to it from Trunks onward. I dunno I feel like "Dragon Ball Z" as you saw it on Toonami would have sold to ...

Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

The Lasr Airbender despite how absolutely god awful it was at least resembled the animated series to some degree while utterly failing in execution of the condensed plot from the show, while Evolution looked more like some generic mid 2000's action movie with the Dragon Ball name slapped onto it and...

Re: Funi's Kai dub and accuracy

I can understand thinking the Faulconer score sounds out of place, though I personally wouldn't call it generic as I can't think of another soundtrack that sounds anything like it. Some of the dialogue is laughable, didn't really notice that as a kid, but even as an adult I can honestly i've heard ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 14 - DB episodes 61-65 (CURRENT WEEK)

I wonder if Toei just really wanted to push Chi Chi as Goku's "girlfriend" not that they forced it on Toriyama or anything Very possibly. Definitely sounds like a Toei thing to do. They definitely played up Chi Chi and Goku's relationship as more genuine than the manga. Not to the extent of Funimat...

. That's why I'll stick with the original in-house dub, it may be less accurate but it certainly feels less awkward to watch IMO I dunno about less awkward https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnriaELk_pw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdGa-2BSFiI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDldPVgtPeU https://www...

Re: Funi's Kai dub and accuracy

Generally speaking, while there are indeed numerous flaws as noted above i'll take Kai's dub over the Z dub any day because the latter had a great deal more effort put into it as far as accuracy goes. It's not to the point of how the former did with being almost entirely off the mark through face pa...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 13 - DB episodes 56-60 (CURRENT WEEK)

Their 2001 dub of Dragon Ball seemed partially an exercise in “well here’s more Dragon Ball Z related stuff we can treat it as a more light hearted prequel ala Young Hercules probably won’t do as well but a lot of DBZ fans will still watch” Yeah, Funi's treatment of DB is much more as a Z prequel s...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 13 - DB episodes 56-60 (CURRENT WEEK)

You kidding? Fukunaga would prefer if Toriyama had just started writing manga with Raditz and nothing else to make his life easier. So basically, if he'd have never done the first 190 or so chapters and it began with Z? Yes, that's the joke. Fukanaga apparently doesn't think very highly of the orig...

Anyways I doubt that would have been a problem in dubbing Dr.Slump. You would think Funimation would have licensed it and just been all "From the creator of Dragon Ball Z!!!!" You kidding? Fukunaga would prefer if Toriyama had just started writing manga with Raditz and nothing else to make his life...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 13 - DB episodes 56-60 (CURRENT WEEK)

I've watched 57-59. Great episodes. The Dr Slump crossover didn't outstay its welcome, and the end of Blue was great. A lot of great gags here. The woman at the police station shooting at everything, the police chasing the aliens, Blue in the fridge (which may be the best gag in the franchise), Tao...

Re: The Baba Arc should be rolled into the RRA Arc

That would be much more sensible than the approach FUNi has taken with needlessly splitting up chunks of a larger arc that are supposed to go together as one whole like Namek or Cell. You've got things like the "Raditz" saga or the "Captain Ginyu" saga , each being 4-5 episodes each. It's over comp...

Re: The Baba Arc should be rolled into the RRA Arc

Gaffer Tape/MistareFusion’s method of splitting the manga into a total of 10 arcs should be the standard. I don't know why that isn't the normal, default split as anything else is just splitting an arc into parts. That would be much more sensible than the approach FUNi has taken with needlessly spl...

Re: Kuririn Should Have Proactively Died to Protect Gokuu from Freeza

I was thinking yesterday that when Kuririn dies on Namek he is once again playing a passive role in his death. This felt very repetitive of his first death. It occurred to me that it would have been more fulfilling if Kuririn had taken a blast for Gokuu's sake, rather than just being killed intenti...

Re: The Baba Arc should be rolled into the RRA Arc

I agree, and have always viewed them as one arc. Splitting it up is like their odd splits of other arcs, such as Namek being divided into 2-3 parts. I know right, same as with arbitrarily splitting up Z into nine seasons for most of their releases when that's not at all how it aired on Toonami as t...

Re: The Baba Arc should be rolled into the RRA Arc

Why Funimation split the Cell portion alone into 3 sagas but treat the Wedding Dress arc and Other World tournament arc as part of the Piccolo Jr saga and Grear Saiyaman saga is anyone’s guess. I think I remember that they were originally going to use "Kai Tournament" or something like that but the...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 13 - DB episodes 56-60 (CURRENT WEEK)

Yeah, this is my take as well. Even in the 22nd TB she really didn't have that much to contribute, so in the Saiyan portion (which on the manga side has a limited cast), she doesn't appear. Now of course it'd make sense for her to be there when Trunks arrives, but remember that just before then the...

Of course, some people takes those significant stretches of non appearance as...
