Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 58 - DBZ 95-99 (CURRENT WEEK)

I've been waiting for this moment for a long time. As I am this rewatch's resident Kai nerd, allow me to show you my personal art gallery. AKA, the Ugly Redraw Gauntlet. All of these are from episode 48, and though by now i'm totally numb to them, for a first time watcher I can imagine it taking the...

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

The trouble is so many fandoms are fucking regressive little be babies cannibalising their own nostalgia to survive. It's not they demand low standards, it's the reverse. it's that there's a number of whales who will buy anything no matter how bad it is. The don't need to hire good writers or anima...

Re: Is anyone still holding out for a new HD remaster from TOEI?

As for Funi, that ship sailed and sank 10 years ago when the Level Sets flopped. The Level sets didn't flop, that was always fan assumption with no basis in facts. The reality is, it's far more likely they sold so much better than they were expecting that Funi's higher-ups decided to re-strategise ...

Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

But DBS didn’t portray Goku correctly. In a way Goku feels like he regressed to early Dragon Ball. He’s 12 year old Goku in 42(ish?) year old Goku’s body. That's kind of what was floating around my mind too when watching through Super, JP and Dub. Like, of course Goku is always going to have a sens...

Re: Is anyone still holding out for a new HD remaster from TOEI?

I seriously doubt Toei will do anything about the dire home video situation for DB anytime soon. I imagine that if they really cared about giving DB / Z the HD treatment, they would've done it long ago instead of holding out until the twilight years of physical media, where it's not viable to sell o...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 56 - DBZ 85-89 (CURRENT WEEK)

I think the amount of staring is overblown. the endless cutaways mid-battle to Bulma or Chichi are insufferable. Oh Chichi, victim to many small cutaways through out the anime that paint her in a worse light than anything she did in the manga. Making her overbearing and naggy to the point of obnoxi...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Switching back and forth from Kai to Z for reference is kind of like an eye opener. Especially once you learn about some of the behinds the scenes troubles going on with the anime at the time. I feel like this is about the point where the pacing of things starts to take a turn for the worse, since b...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 53 - DBZ Movie 4 (CURRENT WEEK)

Man i'm a bit late to the party here, but i'll still chip in. Honestly I can't muster up much of anything outside the consensus here. Movie 4 is just a drab boring watch. The only thing positive I can mention is the animation, but really that's nothing out of the norm, Toei always had their prime st...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 52 - DBZ 70-74 (CURRENT WEEK)

Definitely agree there in regard to Tiffany Vollmer's Bulma, her performance for the character was so stereotypical "bratty, vain valley girl" especially in the beginning with Season 3 in a way that Hiromi Tsuru's (RIP!!!!) take in the original version never even remotely was and that can also be e...

Hopefully you guys are getting into it too. Whatever your plans may be, I hope you stay safe and healthy out there. Here's to ...

Re: The potential of a GT Sequel

Would you like one to be made in the future ? How would you like it to be ? One thing they could do is have it set directly after Goku leaves with Shenron, and have it follow 3 different stories: Goku's story taking place wherever he went with Shenron, Vegeta's story set on earth and space, & Picco...

Re: Who is your favorite God of Destruction?

It's a toss up between Beerus and Champa for me, though them being brothers of differing physiques and the moments where they are at each other's throats are by far my favorites. Indeed. That's why I actually quite liked the Universe 6 arc. Watching what are essentially two brothers fighting like c...

Re: For those of you who saw DBZ first...

Well for years my only real exposure to DB was through Kai. Hopefully that counts. Anyhow when watching through OG DB, then going back to Z, the deaths of Yamcha, Krillin and Tien are a lot more impactful. Simply due to the fact that you actually get to spend time to know the characters. You actuall...

Give me Blue Ray release of the original Dragon Ball and I’ll take most of the bad things I ever said about FUNimation back. I'm surprised we haven't gotten GT on Blu-Ray yet considering how short it is. It's such a shame that 2 major parts of the biggest franchise in anime are still stuck on a dec...

Well if you're still taking results right now i'll go and throw my hat into the ring. I like Robo's idea of sorting them within the ranks by chronological order so i'll do the same. Makes things nice and tidy. And since my main experience with DB is with the anime version, I will do a separate ranki...
