Re: Which Goku Return/Power Increase is Your Favorite In the Original Series? (not Including Transformations)

Goku Emerging from the Rejuvenation Chamber and arriving on the battlefield is definitely a highlight for me. Up to that point Freeza was just dragging everyone through the mud, going as far as to turn the strongest of them into a crying bi*ch. When Goku arrived though, you could tell from that epic...

Re: Can Someone Please Explain To Me Why Would Akira Toriyama & Many Others Had Chosen To Do An Absurd Series of Retcons

One simple word, marketing. The image of the current cast is iconic, so they want to keep it front and center as much as possible. I personally think BOG works perfectly as is, but that should've been it, everything starting with RF should've been set post EOZ. In terms of the actual quality, it's t...

I really hope we get that XV3 announcement for the next gen. The game did too well not to have another sequel
It'll more than likely be cross gen like XV1 was.

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

I'm sure if he got offered a big paycheck he wouldn't say no to redubbing Goku. The old dub is literally 20 years old now too. I'm surprised a relic from 20 years ago is still being offered as product in 2020. That's the problem, it would require a big paycheck that could be going into other anime ...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

It wouldn’t sell well enough to justify the effort of redubbing 291 episodes. That’s just a fact. Dubbing aint cheap. P The episode count is definitely a problem. I'd like to seem them at least test it out, maybe with Z's TV specials and see how it does. Then again, why bother when the show is alre...

Not only DB and GT, but the majority of the movies and specials need a new dub as well.

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Their main target audience unfortunately not only loves the dub, but also believes it to be superior to Kai. This is why Super's dub for example has some of the changes they made early on with Z, they're catering to that old Toonami fan base that wouldn't know what a quality dub was if their lives d...

Re: So is this whole Moro arc basically the, "Garlic Jr. saga" of Super?

I criticize the climax's pacing because it's poorly paced, not because it's "too long" or whatever. Neither the original manga nor Super's previous arcs had this issue in such a recurring way. There's almost nothing to discuss in monthly-length chunks when so little is actually happening on a progr...

Re: What Inconsistencies &/or Retcons You Wished Were Never Made In Dragon Ball Super?

Toriyama liked Bardock enough to incorporate him into a few manga panels but decided to make his own version of the character and introduce Goku's mother decades later. You can tell it's something he didn't care about back then since he could've easily had a special chapter like he did with Future ...

I get the feeling that TFS returning to DBZ Abridged for the Buu arc is an inevitability at this point.
One way I can see them doing it to avoid getting burned out again is to simply release one or two episodes a year, maybe every Christmas and a day in June.

I have heard rumors... the Steelbooks will be an improvement on the 30th anniversary Blu-Rays. Specifically that the fake grain layer will be removed and the colors less saturated. I guess it could happen, but I just can't see Funi doing this, as it'll prevent them from releasing the show later dow...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Nozawa's the voice of Goku & most of his male relatives & doppelgängers, but she doesn't, nor has she ever, made any decisions behind the creative choices in DB. She may not have written it, but I think it's reasonable to say that someone as connected to Goku as she was would be in the know of what...

Goku never died in GT, what? Piccolo did, but not Goku. If you're talking about when he went off with Shenron, that's not him dying. That's him going off with the dragon & possibly extending his lifespan. Nozawa said in an interview (you can find it on the sire here in the translation section) that...

Re: Dragon Ball GT and Star Wars

I think it's likely the writers were fans, as star wars is a huge franchise. Look at DB itself, countless other manga also have nods to it due to their authors growing up with DB.
