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

Even though I disagree, it's your opinion at the end of the day. I think the Japanese OST could've used a little more variety (Toei being Toei), but it's hard for me to say a replacement score is objectively better than the score it was originally created for

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

Most likely a fat no. Doubt Toriyama would even think about that no matter how bad a select few would wanna believe otherwise

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

I think I can deal with a few people becoming fans through DBZA not becoming fans at all had DBZA not existed if it meant I don't have to see all these shithead annoying fanboys in every video or comment section I come across DB related. And I say this as a fan of their work, but the franchise has b...

Re: Can't get into Kai

The Boo arc always seems to get handled the most poorly video quality wise from Toei. The cyan/pink tint and a few bright episodes from the dragon boxes, and now green tint kai. I know this was for the intentional market, but come on. And that's not even going into the filler they barely trimmed. I ...

Re: Was the original premise of the Android arc better?

17 and 18 weren't any less threatening than an old man and a clown machine. For me I'm in the opposite, I think from 17 and 18 getting introduced up until Cell's semi perfect transformation was my favorite part of the arc. Goku was out for most of those episodes and you found out there's another thr...

Re: Is Tai'ichiro Ohara the most underrated artist/animator?

His work was certainly very good, but for the old Last House days I think Shida overshadows him (and I'm a big fan of the art style he had back then too). I agree that Shida was the star of the studio, but I wouldn't call him underrated. His work was some of the most praised and still is to this da...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

Even though I enjoy the abridged series for what it is, I really, REALLY don't like it when funimation tries to mimic their humor onto a dub. It wasn't so bad in Kai TFC, but in Super I feel like they went out of their way to appease TFS fans. Wish they'd just focus on producing a great quality dub ...

Is Tai'ichiro Ohara the most underrated artist/animator?

I feel like he doesn't get enough credit for his work in the series, I put the blame for being associated with one of the cheaper animation studios Last House and being under Uchiyama's supervision (especially since their work looks almost similar but I heard he was also corrected a lot too). But as...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The faulconer productions music is the only American replacement score that's any good to me. They all deviate from Kikuchi so much, but the faulconer score at least has that unique flavor to it (far from generic like a lot of people will say). Both the ocean dub (forgot the composer's name) and nat...

Re: Can't get into Kai

Honestly the performances in Kai from the veteran Funimation actors don’t sound that much better than how they did around the Boo saga onward in Z. I think people are mostly comparing them to their immediate post-Ocean takeover episodes in the “Captain Ginyu” episodes to around the Android stuff. T...

Re: Has your opinion on Faulconer softened over time?

Nah. It has gotten worse in fact. This is one of those things that is so disrespectful to the source material and it so cancerous, that i have no interest in even entertaining the idea that it should exist. It really shouldn't be anywhere close to this franchise and i'm glad that it isn't other tha...

the Buu arc is imo the worst thing toriyama ever made
For some reason I think Majin Vegeta is the exception to this statement, haha.
Not gonna disagree. For me, the Buu saga starts spiraling downhill once, well, Buu arrives

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

I don't really pay attention to what funimation does outside of shows I watch but I've been boycotting their home releases since 2007. I was 10 when the orange bricks were released and I still knew they looked like garbage. Here I am at 22, still waiting for that perfect (enough) release. Would've b...

Re: Z or Original Dragon Ball? Which do you prefer and why?

The 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai up until the end of the Freeza arc is the peak of the franchise imo so it's kinda hard to say which I prefer. I feel like the end of DB blends into the Saiyan arc well, which itself blends into the namek/freeza arc good too. Overall though I'll say Z even though the Buu ar...

Re: Orange Bricks vs Blu-rays (2014) - Definitive Discussion

I don't own either release, but from footage and screenshots I've seen I can say with confidence the blu-rays are the better buy (not a high bar at all, but should be said). Both are cropped, DNR'd cheap releases but the blu-rays win simply by not having the line disappearing issue (I know after aro...
