Re: Where can Saiyan transformations go from here?

SSJ transformations can go on forever as long as they have a distinct color of the rainbow to make Goku's hair :lol: But jokes aside if DB keeps going on, they'll be bound to force out a new form for when the story puts Goku into a corner and he needs a way to beat the opponent somehow stronger than...

Re: Vegeta spents most of the time being a douchebag in the orginal manga,does a 180 and never suffers for his crimes

If I remember right I don't think Vegeta ever went to Hell. I recall Yema saying something along the lines of "If this were any other time, i'd send you right to Hell, but because of the Buu situation, I need you to go back and fight again.".

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

This may be a strange comparison, but i've been rewatching Super and I noticed that when they flashback to past events, they'll just use old footage, be it cropped to fit the 16:9 ratio Super is made it obviously. A certain flashback caught my eye. In episode 86 when Dende first tells Goku about Oob...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

Don't have any comparing all but did make this one against the JPN Dragon Box when I was looking at the Buu era episodes. It is a shame the Dragon Box fell in quality (for me) during most of the Buu episodes. Strong green tint and overblown highlights, where I actually preferred the look of the 30t...

See here ---> viewtopic.php?t=40195 Covers all 167 episodes By dirty work, do you mean technically illegal? If I were to do something like this, do you know if it matters whether I have Pa...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

The general consensus is that Kai is only really worth it as a dub fan simply because the writing and performances are so much more improved from the original dub. Everyone is familiar with their characters and their performances, and Coleen's vocal evolution as Gohan is amazing to see evolve over ...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

Really, even on the Blu Ray? Maybe its worth saving money to just go for the DVDs then? (There are some crazy good deals for Kai, but only for the DVDs). I'm interested in picking up Kai, just to get a fresh take on the show. How tolerable is the misplaced Kikuchi music? Is it worth trying to track...

Awesome, thanks for including the Funi Single. The singles are the biggest competition against the Black Bricks for me, wanting 4:3 with Faulconer score. Thanks a lot. I decided to throw in the Funi Single because obviously the Level Sets never got this far, and I wanted atleast 4 different version...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

OH! And I almost forgot. Isn't the picture quality on the Black Bricks actually worse than the season set Blu Rays, on account of the added artificial grain? (Unless you subjectively prefer that aesthetic)? The grain probably isn't a big deal as long as it isn't excessive. From what i've seen it do...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

This may not be 100% on the topic of Dragon Ball, but this makes me think of game piracy in a way. Gabe Newell said that the best way to combat piracy is to give customers a better experience than what the pirates give them. This is true. Playing a game on Steam will always be a infinitely better e...

Another lost English Dub of DB that i've never heard of before? The world sure does keep on surprising, i'd love to see it. If you already don't know too, the 5 Harmony Gold dub episodes from OG DB finally saw the light of day recently. And if they can resurface after being lost for 20+ years. who ...

Re: DB ranked 2nd anime Japanese fans would watch forever.

By 2040 the AI project will be able to create manga indistinguishable from human pen-work. The anime probably won't end until then considering how slow it's moving. To give you an idea on how bad things are, some episodes now only adapt half or a bit more of a chapter. So like the late Frieza saga ...

I'm surprise that One Piece is not there. It’s already lasted forever. One Piece will continue forever.
