Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 47 - DBZ episode 53-57 (CURRENT WEEK)

As others have said, these episodes show that DBZ isn't all just mindless screaming and punching, there's also a lot of scheming and uneasy alliances. I love how Vegeta makes mincemeat out of the Ginyu Force.

Re: Kirby Morrow, Third Canadian Voice of Goku, Passes Away

I don't know about that... for most people, is there really any distinguishable difference between their voice in their 40s compared to their 30s? My dad turns 72 next month and his voice sounds so similar compared to home videos where he was in his late 30s and early 40s that I can't detect a chan...

Selling the Ultimate Uncut version of Tree of Might which is becoming surprisingly rare and pricey(at least on Ebay), my listing is definitely the cheapest one on there by a good amount: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/e12000.m43.l6300/7?euid=301ed99cd06a4dc7b6336648e8fbca79&bu=43970284413&segname=12...

Re: Funimation's 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I legit have a serious question that I don't believe anyone can answer. Why does FUNi keep thinking they can make this show look "modern"? It's a show from the 80s & 90s. It is paced really slowly. With the Japanese score & sound effects, it sounds OLD! It can never feel "modern." Kai's the "modern...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 46 - DBZ episode 48-52 (CURRENT WEEK)

Even as a kid I found the Christian references super-jarring, as someone who was already forced to go to church every week the last thing I wanted to see was random out-of-nowhere Christian references in a cartoon show. The Dende stuff is definitely the single most awkward edit of the entire Saban r...

Re: I've got the Dragon Ball Fever.

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 45 - DBZ episode 43-47 (CURRENT WEEK)

This is where the censorship really starts to get noticeable in the original dub, if Saban had dubbed the entirety of the Freeza saga I can only imagine how much more ridiculous it would've gotten. Freeza makes a good impression as a villain, he enjoys toying with his opponents and is very cold and ...

Re: Why is it that other anime geet pristine home/anniversary releases, yet the Dragon Ball franchise keeps getting ruin

DB fans unfortunately support anything with the franchise's name on it, resulting in the companies behind it not having to put much effort into it. Funimation's releases of Z are terrible, yet anytime they put one out it flies off the shelves. The idea of getting Funimation to care went out the win...

Re: Why is it that other anime geet pristine home/anniversary releases, yet the Dragon Ball franchise keeps getting ruin

Yeah, it seems Dragon Ball has the same problem as Pokemon, where it doesn't matter how quality the product is, it will still sell a lot regardless. Really dissapointng, but I'll have to get used to it and hunt around for those elusive boxes. The Pokemon anime is nowhere as popular in the west as i...

Re: Dragonball GT DVD singles titles

They probably wanted GT to come off as edgier and more serious than it was. They definitely did. I don't think Funi had any faith in GT at all, so they tried to market it as this serious, dark, edgy take on Dragon Ball, and basically rewrote the scripts as necessary, and skipped the first 16 episod...

the awful, divisive yet profitable format at the same time format that was ultimately decided on.

They were profitable because they were the first time all of DBZ was available on DVD, an...

Always thought it was weird that Bulma was walking around in her underwear on that enemy ship, I can't think of a story-reason to justify it and it definitely feels like Toei only threw it in for the sake of fan-service, I get that it's an Alien reference(though Ripley stripping down to her underwea...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

I'm of the opinion no show should go past the 6 season mark, and no matter how serialized the story is each chapter or episode should be about solving some single issue. In DB, each episode or chapter is some phase of the battle. The longer a single story goes, the more obstacles have to be put in ...
