Re: Toriyama's depiction of S-Cells is unlike midichlorians: people hung up on potential.

Umm, imma normal DBZ fanboy who loves the series for life. But all those "fan-made Power-Level" discussions, Majin Boo transformations & Kaioken/Bluper/UI/Omen/MUI made me scratching my head even for a guy as simple as me. And you just took it to whole new level right now by infusing DBZ with genet...

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

I legit forgot that DBE even existed. Same with TLA. This comparison has been done for ages, what did you seriously think would be discussed here other than the same stuff that‘s been talked about for more than a decade now?

Re: Other Fictional Characters that would fit in Dragon Ball

• Transformers • Universe 3 is basically the metal Universe or something, isn't it? That's the first thing that came into mind when I first heard that. C'mon, Universe 3 should be where we'd get to see Optimus Prime, Megatron and many other great characters! Heck no, giant robots, sentient or pilot...

Re: If Naruto was a Dragonball character, how far would he go?

Since he's human, he'd probably get as far as Krillin. Was literally coming to say this. I guess he is supposedly a reincarnated god with a demon within him so maybe Uub? Naruto had a lot of nonsense to his name by the end. To be fair the seeds were there from the very beginning, like standing on t...

It wouldn't surprise me if Toriyama was influenced a little bit by Naruto villains when he came up with the character of Zamasu.
In that case it would be the influence coming full circle.

Re: If Naruto was a Dragonball character, how far would he go?

Naruto would fit so much better in DB than in his own verse, right at home in fact. He’s way too much of a Goku clone in so many respects and thus is far too simple for his own complicated world. Seconded. Zamasu is so not a DBZ villain, only someone like Naruto could talk him down. Unless he’s anyt...

The topic isn't about rebooting Toriyama's manga, but remaking the anime. Think of HunterXHunter's 2011 anime reboot compared to its 1999 version.
Didn’t they already try and fail spectacularly with that in DB Kai?

Re: Possibility of anime reboot with new seiyu...

And by the same token there's also numerous franchises that never get even a single reboot once. Case in point being the entire catalog of the likes of Sunrise, and they have a lot of popular entries. But Toei just elects to continue the old series with sequels regardless of what else may happen. If...

Re: Problem #472 with the Dragon Boxes - DNR

In other words, standard Toei ineptitude. Good on detecting this, but is any of this even news at this point anymore?
If by this point this series hasn't received proper justice in releases then it likely never will.

Re: So, have you finally accepted that this is Saiyan show now?

The Saiyans are all mostly wiped out anyway, there’s only a few pure-blooded ones left and there are quite a few other powerful people of other races, though they would be in either the villain or antagonist category. Plus even if they weren’t wiped out, there was always going to be a handful of eli...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

The tone, characters' personalities, etc. are so far removed from what was originally intended that watching the English dub of Dragon Ball Z leaves you with very little knowledge of the series. For that reason, they might as well have completely changed the story (especially as they partially did ...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I love music like everyone, but I don't have the knowledge to really discuss it. I can just tell you how I feel. The music was probably more varied and it feels like Faulconer usually scored to the scene instead of banking a bunch of tracks and placing them in a number of similar scenes. No problem...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

That’s just flat out wrong. The Faulconer score had a few lemotifs throughout the run. All of the Buu themes and some of the Trunks themes have the same melody just changed up. SS3 Powerup and Gotenks is born as well. Earth and New Earth. And I’m sure others I’m forgetting. Please post them here th...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

The Team Faulconer score is one of the most compositionally complex and rich scores you will ever hear. I don't have to musical education to say all the right words, unlike some of the pro-Faulconer musicians I know... A few problems with that though, while a few melodies were good, they didn't eve...

Even so, I've got a very strong love for the compositions I've listened to across many different old games. I listen to them daily, despite not growing up with them. That may be true indeed, but it's still not exactly transcending its time in the same manner as, say, true instrument music, however ...

Why would Toei be responsible for Funimation's actions?
They should have remastered it themselves, not outsourced it.
