Re: The International Version of the Buu-Kai Arc

Hey guys, just got here myself. Pretty crazy stuff. It's like Japan Saban'd themselves.

Any word on when Funimation is bringing Kai to the US, yet?

Re: Toriyama's changed thoughts on the anime.

Yeah, I'm not seeing this 'distinction' Toriyama or most the people in this thread are referring to. Unless it's something utterly lost in translation in the Viz version of the manga, I don't really understand what the anime or movies do that isn't an established character trait he's already shown i...

Other characters who should final blow a baddie(FnF Spoiler)

One of the hot topics of discussion for Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F is that Vegeta should have gotten the final blow against Freeza, instead of just giving it to Goku again . Fans are rightly tired of Goku hogging all the spotlight, so I've taken the time to write up a list of other great character...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

Choose: it's either the true continuation of the manga as if writing for new published pages, or it's self-contained movies which is never what we would have seen in the manga, which is therefore a false vision of what a continuation would be like. Or the third option, the Goku and Friends approach...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

I distinctly remember BOG's summary didn't show everything, so I've decided no matter my reaction to it once it shows up that there's probably still more to see. Everyone will be looking for something different, and would write the summary differently. Yeah. These spoilers are nice for us who can't...

Re: Highest point of the series

Even though within this period there are definitely highlight moments (and a small handful after it), I think the best stretch of Dragon Ball starts with episode 17, "With Life At Stake! Milk Delivery" and goes with a fury of awesomeness til Trunks shows up. For those who like TVTropes, Milk Deliver...

Re: Question about FUNi's masters

Hey man, no reason to immediately jump down my throat. No, the Dragon Box and Kai are not the 'true colours' nor do they match the Japanese broadcast. The Dragon Boxes have significant colour shift due to aging film so you can't label it as 'Japanese Broadcast'. Kai has its own colour palette that t...

Re: Question about FUNi's masters

IIRC, everything Funi has put out, apart from their import release of the Dragon Box Z, has been from the original masters purchased from Toei animation back when Gen Fukunaga first had the crazy scheme in his brain to bring the show to American shores. Their "remastering" processes can only do so ...

Re: Quick questions for those that don't like BoG.

To be perfectly fair, the movie was marketed in general as a much more serious tone then it had. So if some fans went in expecting that based on the marketing it isn't entirely their fault to have those expectations shattered by a decidedly different tone. This is exactly it. It was sold to us as T...

Re: Is Goku an idiot, or just naive?

Naive at first, and then just relaxed as he gets older. He'll never not be ignorant of some things, but he's learned to roll with the figurative punches on those things and leave them to his betters (Chichi, Gohan, Bulma, Kuririn).

Re: Quick questions for those that don't like BoG.

I don't like the Funi dub, and I didn't really care for BoG. These two things don't feel related though, as I didn't watched BoG dubbed, and haven't seen much of the franchise dubbed.
