Re: What was happening in the Dragon Ball series around your birth?

Manga: The perfected Gotenks appears for the first time.

Anime: Vegeta sacrifices himself against Buu.

I assumed it would be something lame but I’m pretty happy with those events marking my arrival. :P

Re: Questions for Gerard Jones? Upcoming Viz Manga Adapter Interview

Was literally coming into this thread to ask “Isn’t he a paedophile?” I've gained access to Gerard at his correctional facility. Dude... Is he still credited in newer re-releases of the manga? (not a question for Jones specifically) But if this interview does go ahead I’d like to know - was it the k...

Re: English Movie Titles - TOEI Vs. FUNimation

Those English titles are available at TOEI's very own website. http://corp.toei-anim.co.jp/en/film/pickup.php?id=1 AB Groupe made the English dubs but TOEI made the English movie/special titles as they are all identical. The so-called official titles you say of TOEI, they were translated by FUNimat...

Re: If Disney buys 21st Century Fox they'll be getting the Dragon Ball movie rights

I'm not expecting it at all but stranger things have happened. I’m not sure if they’d even be allowed to do that. As I said I'm not expecting Disney to make a live action dbz film and then put it the mcu but if Evolution was allowed to be made I don't see why a Dbz movie would be banned from the mc...

Re: Did Ultimate Tenkaichi have potential as a full series?

No. It's the worst Dragon Ball game I've ever played (for home consoles anyway... *shivers at Taiketsu * ). You might as well flip a coin for several hours. It's practically the same experience and just as much fun. I don't think any amount of improvements or fresh paint would make that gameplay sys...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Damn Kanassa, you just set the bar for Photo Mode. People can literally make their own manga with this game, with whatever fanboy characters they want. I can see a popular webcomic or two sprouting from this. I'm not a big user of photo modes personally but I can't deny that's awesome.

Re: Were deaths meaningless / with no tension after the Namek story arc?

No, they were since chapter 1 when Bulma tried to murder Goku on a whim and it was played off as a gag, it never changed since then, here's how relevant death was on Namek when ressurection wasn't so easy yet. https://i.imgur.com/iX1tEAP.jpg What's with that page?

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Yeah, is this some kind of a record? Admittedly I'm not the biggest gamer but I can't think of any other games that are/were still getting major additional content (e.g. playable characters/stages) two full years after the first piece of DLC was released. When the game came out I think everyone just...

Re: Why wasn't Raditz voiced by Masako Nozawa?

It also conceals the double-whammy alien/brother twist until it's revealed - if Raditz started talking like Goku as soon as he appeared you'd know what's up. I don't think Nozawa ever voiced any other prominent characters besides Goku before that. Of course this was probably just coincidence, as the...

Re: How could a new movie be more successful than DBS: Broly?

I don't see how it could, but it wouldn't hurt anybody for them to try. Hopefully Toei will learn the right lessons from Broli i.e. its success behooves them to continue producing content of a similarly high calibre. It wasn't just successful because it was Dragon Ball - they clearly put a lot more ...

Re: How on target or off base is this video discussing Racism in Dragon Ball?

Just in case there's any confusion, the full name of "Black Sanbō" originates in the anime. There's a disturbing trend of the TV writers taking concepts or characters that are kinda on-the-fence in terms of potential offensiveness and just... well... making them flat-out offensive (see also: the in...

For years now I've been trying to get my hands on the episode guide booklet for Dragon Ball season 5 (the blue bricks).

Re: Dragon Ball more popular than Sonic and Mario

I'm going to throw my hat in the ring and say that Goku's had more character development than Mario. He goes from a wild boy in the mountains who can barely lift a turtle to a family man who is so strong he can decide the fate of the universe. Mario was a jolly plumber trying to rescue a princess fr...
