I have a stupid (maybe?) question: how do you actually play as the characters you get with those three passwords from the official site? Is it possible to use them in modes like the Dragon World Tour? Also, what do those items let the char do?? I'm just now starting to mess around and learn the Evol...

What's the easiest way to get the DragonBalls? Like, I know I have to crash through buildings, rocks, and stuff to get them but I want a certain stage that I can just go through, get the DB, and complete the scenario. Also can I get them in the tournament mode? Because I actually did get one once f...

I'll ask this in here since it isn't really a translation question: has anyone figured out a quick way to gather all the DBs so that you can use Shenron's wish to get the extra chars? I know they're scattered randomly in stages, but even playing just to destroy the stages I've only been able to find...

Actually, I have a question that maybe someone can answer. This is the first Sparking!/BT game that I've played, so I don't know if it's the same in the others or not, but what exactly is that number under the health/next to the ki bars? I know that techniques can be done when it reaches a certain n...

Who says he had to go 1000 years in the past to save Minoshia? Couldn't he have jumped even a year or two back in order to reach him in time to stop his death? Though I'm not exactly sure what Tapion had intended to do. He gave up the sword and doesn't seem like a guy who's capable of doing what Gok...

Sorry for the DP. Can someone translate the menu stuff which comes after pressing the "i"-Button? The (i) menu has these options: キャラ | Eかード | シナリオ | ちゅうだん | おわる In (rough) English, the menu is this: Character | E-Card | Scenario | Interruption (Break) | Finish/Exit Character is the default when yo...

I don't think it's just Dragon Ball. Have you seen the Inuyasha fanbase? I remember back when [adult swim] had an April fool's joke to add mustaches to all the characters on the show. And until they showed Inuyasha with it, everyone was fine. Happy, even. It was a great laugh. ho ho ho. Then Inuyash...

Actually that's an interesting idea... if Kami had absorbed Piccolo, would the dragon ball's still have existed with Kami still being god? You guys have me thinking now. I don't think the DBs would have stuck around. The reason being, it wouldn't be Kami anymore. Just like it wasn't really Piccolo ...

I've always thought that proper nouns shouldn't be translated. Names of people, attacks or places should remain in their original language. :) Just my opinion. I completely agree with this one here for the most part. Things like "Bejita" to "Vejita" is okay in my book, as is taking something like "...

Is it me or does Gokuu look like he lost a lot of muscle mass in this newer art style?? I mean, yeah, he's still buff, but compare this to the end of Z. He looks more natural in this art style--by that I mean he looks more like what human beings can achieve. Has anyone been able to confirm or deny t...

Just an off-the-wall question here... does Amazon ship DVDs to America? I know I tried to buy something (maybe it was a PS2 game) from them and they stated that they don't ship it outside of Japan. Is it just specific items or am I just really unlucky?

They already did all of Z. Z consists of 291 episodes, 13 movies and two television specials. As far as I know, FUNimation has done exactly that. You can't count that weird walkthrough game footage as part of Z, as it's not. I mean, by your logic FUNimation would have to dub every DBZ commercial eve...

I find it weird that they're releasing it on the XBox. Does the XBox have region-specific discs or are they "one machine plays all" ? I wouldn't mind if they released it for PS2 but does the slimline even have the ability to play online games? (I know the old clunky one had the ability to play FFXI ...

There is voices for stuff like "Kamehameha" during battle.

In the sound options there's actually quite a bit of varying sound samples from the characters (anything from the attacks to phrases the character uses a lot in the show). But I haven't actually heard these during the game.

This thread gave me an idea for Meri's top 5 for the podcast. The Top 5 Moments of Mercy (shown by Gokuu or anyone else, I suppose). Anyway, I don't necessarily think Cell is all that smart. Half the time he just got lucky. And he had his dumb moments too, like when he was just screaming at the top ...

The story that I've played thus far (again, only up until the end of Gokuu's training on Kaiou's planet) is that of Z. It follows the same story we know and love. Basically you walk around the map and meet objectives (which usually involved "beat up so and so" or "catch so and so"). Inbetwen walking...

All of the characters have their moments of brilliance and their moments of "what were they thinking?" stupidity. Gokuu, I feel, isn't as dumb as people make him out to be. He may lack some common sense, but when it comes to fighting he's pretty smart. He was smart enough to realize that no one but ...

Great volume review. I had forgotten which volume had the "fetch the rock" contest. Now that I know, I'm going to have to go read it again. I always loved that part. I also checked out the Doomrider AMV that was mentioned and I have to say, great job. It is, without doubt, one of the coolest AMVs I'...
