Re: Manga censorship

I remember hearing a story that originally the Manga did come out uncensored when it first got released in the U.S. way back in the 90s, but parents groups objected to it being sold in places like Toys R Us so Viz was basically forced to censor it or lose sales. Don't you just hate it when media wat...

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

I would argue that post is obnoxious, you ever tried reading Breitbart? I don't recommend it, but everything on that site is every bit as bad if not worse then the shittiest Youtube vids i've seen, yet they build themselves up as a "journalistic" website. I just can't help but see your posts as bei...

To which I would argue that comment is obnoxious. As bad as some articles in national newspapers are there is no way with a straight face you can say F'N Youtube videos are on the whole either on the same level or better.

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

Your NYTimes counter isn't a good one. They don't let anyone be a journalist for their paper. There's quality control whereas anyone can post a video on youtube. The vast majority of stuff that's made is terrible to mediocre; that goes even more for content created by non-professionals. BTW that is...

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

Bob's BvS video is amazing. It's not just some annoying video like we constantly see where they spend hours listing plot holes. He offers substantive criticisms like issues of adaptation, structure, theme, etc. Power Rangers and substance are three words that never should be uttered the same breath...

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

It's a stereotype for a reason. It's overwhelmingly true. Obviously there are CASES where that doesn't hold true but the overwhelming majority of youtubers are awful. Linkara's videos are annoying. I don't think it's pointless to do a video on youtube but so many of those doing videos have nothing ...

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

Long, in depth analysis of Dragon Ball on Youtube. To me this seems incredibly pointless, as it was never meant to conform to anyone's logic, rules or any school of writing. But these Youtubers say really smart things, referring to the science of literature, so they become popular and known as Drag...

Re: What exactly makes a satisfying ending?

I consider the alternate HIMYM far worse. It's just way too safe and cowardly. There's nothing to linger on afterwards unlike with the other great finales mentioned. Although some may say it erases character development and so on, I think it concludes most of it pretty well. The kids' deduction tha...

Re: What exactly makes a satisfying ending?

The ending of DBZ has grown on me over the years. Goku wants to reach higher and higher mountains and Uub represents that for him. Super's ending is pretty satisfying. It's a life goes ever on type ending. Problem with DBZ/the manga's ending is after spending so much time on the next generation and...

Re: What exactly makes a satisfying ending?

HIMYM's ending was bad because while it paid off the story logically. It gave a credible reason why Ted would feel the need to tell a long story about how he met his children's mother, it was a disappointing pay off to the rest of the series. He never actually got over Robin, and the tonal switch f...

I would have to say Heroes, its kind of depressing seeing the DBZ characters appropriated just to sell a card game.

I don't really see the appeal of 4K frankly, my good old HDTV works just fine for me. You can apply the same logic to any new format...its not something you need..it's just better. The difference can be negligible to mind blowing depending on the particular movie/content you are watching. I guess t...

Eh. I think Blu ray should be the bare minimum these days..hell, outside of anime Blu rays, I exclusively only buy 4K discs these days. The only DVDs I actively watch/own are DB related (ex. Dragon Boxes).
