“Shintani style” fan art is not Shintani. I really don’t get how this is so hard for people to understand.
I think my entire thread made it clear I'm not a fan of his work whether it's via fan made drawings or official work like in DBS Broly

Shintani's style doesn't do it for me

If his popularity is anything to go by, I might get some heat for this thread. But I'm sorry, I just don't get the hype. I'm not calling him a bad artist, but when you have guys like Takahashi and Shida working on the same projects and comparing their work, I just don't see why Shintani is the one e...

Anyone have access to Dragon Box 3 Audio?

I've been playing with the season BD audio in audacity for a little bit and recently found out that the center channel is slightly out of sync from the other channels (by a very few ms). Someone was able to remove the Japanese OST but couldn't remove the vocals since the side tracks in the blu ray a...

Re: Gotenks is by far the most annoying canon character of the entire franchise

Only reason I sorta liked him growing up was because he was always fun to use in the video games, especially Budokai 2 and 3. Other than that yeah definitely an annoying one.

Re: Preserving the Nicktoons Airings of DB Material

Crazy to think that nicktoons Kai is something nostalgic now. I was in high school during its run and I was one of those who wasn't a fan because I grew up mainly in the toonami era and wasn't a fan because of the edits (folks couldn't afford to buy any home release either so I was stuck with what w...

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

Nothing wrong with synth. People like to throw that term around with a negative connotation. As much as I prefer Kikuchi's score, the Faulconer score does have a unique sound and produced some damn good music (Goku's death, Vegeta's red power, Goku's spirit bomb, anyone? No? Okay :| ) The biggest ki...

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: 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...

Nah. It has gotten worse in fact.

It really shouldn't be anywhere close to this franchise and i'm glad that it isn't other tha...
