Z Warriors vs. Frieza (mixing "Z" & "Kai")

What do you think of the idea of creating a "definitive cut" of the The Z Warriors vs. Frieza fight, that mixes episodes from "Z" and "Kai"? Don't know about you, but I find the length of this fight in the original Z to be just unbearable. I gave this a try a couple of years ago, and I feel this mix...

Hi everyone. Is there a link to listen to the movie's song?:... "Z no Chikai" ('The Vow of Z') by Momoiro Clover Z

I can't seem to find it anywhere. I remember Flow's Hero being everywhere months before 'Battle of Gods was released.

Re: What if Kid Buu had won the final battle (consequences?)

To Hitiro (I can't make the quoting work for some reason) Honestly man, with "should of"/"could of" types of arguments that's where I pretty much draw the line. At this point, anyone could 'fan-wank' anything to help fit their theories. I saw the episode 2 days ago: the narrator (in Japanese) clear...

Re: What if Kid Buu had won the final battle (consequences?)

I'm pretty sure the Potaras the Saiyans crushed right before Kid Buu arrives were the last ones ever. And I like the idea that Buu would just leave when seeing Gohan, or just make their current location explode. This scenario was probably unintentional by Akira Toriyama, but it really leaves Goku an...

Re: What if Kid Buu had won the final battle (consequences?)

But... to teleport you have to have a lock-on on someone's ki. That takes maybe 30 seconds of deep concentration. Before this fight, Kid Buu was only teleporting to other planets just because he was tracking the highest power levels he was feeling across the universe in order to find Goku and Veget...

'Visual References' in the anime like these. Are there more?

I don't know what the correct term for these things is. But I recently discovered many cool visual references. Apparently the anime is filled with them. I only noticed these 3 so far. http://i59.tinypic.com/29zxjc.png http://i58.tinypic.com/2w72v4j.jpg Vegeta: from evil to good. http://i58.tinypic.c...

Re: What if Kid Buu had won the final battle (consequences?)

Yeah I kind of remember Goku saying that they'd get slaughtered after they left Buu's stomach. Do you remember what scene that happened in? He says it after they separate Gohan and the others from Evil Boo. Chapter: 507 (DBZ 313), P12.4-5 Context: after Goku and Vegeta revert Boo back to regular ev...

Re: What if Kid Buu had won the final battle (consequences?)

Alternatively, he could have IT'd away, charged his attack and then fire it at Buu. Buu can teleport too, remember? Which, funnily enough, is yet another reason why the ending doesn't make a lot of sense since Buu could have just teleported out of the way of the Spirit Bomb. Now that would have bee...

Re: Is it worth it to own both Z and Kai.

I personally feel like it's worth owning all of Z, but not Kai. The best reason I can see for someone wanting all of Kai is for a good english dub. Kai is a butchered version of Z, with re-drawn bits and pieces of the same Z bits and pieces. Then you get into Kai, with a different aspect ratio than...

Re: Have you ever lost interest in the franchise?

Just wanted to share my story. Naturally, my interest in different shows has waned over time. I used to be obsessed with Breaking Bad, and now I can barely be bothered to watch it if it's on TV. With Dragon Ball, I go through cycles, but my love for the franchise has never diminished. I'm eternally ...

When Goku enters a scene, there should be dueling banjos. Bardock and Gine were probably first cousins. Goku doesn't want the gob'nit on his propatay, dagnabit. He's fixin' to cook up sum viddles.

I can converse casually in Japanese (I left too young), but my ear for accents is not great. Luckily, I have 1-2 Japanese that can help. "Goku speaks a mix of the Nagoya and Tohoku dialects. But at the same time its neither." On the Yakuza Accent Note form: - Nozawa's tone is rough and may pronounce...

In the "Level sets", was the Japanese audio given 5.1 HD? I'm not sure if I remember it being that or "mono". But, this is pretty much my only gripe with the new season sets: the sound.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" On Blu-ray: News & Discussion

I'm curious: After the Ginyu Force arrives, does the show revert to the original late 90s dub of DBZ (Season 3 of Orange bricks). Or has there been an attempt to re-dub it so that's it's similar to the quality seen in the remastered Saiyan arc/Buu arc? With the exception of Vegeta, Ginyu (frog mode...

Not anymore. You could week-by-week as Viz was releasing it, and for a while via back-issues, but they do not extend their back-issues that far into the past to grab the particular 2013 issues which had Jaco .

Fantastic explanation! I agree! The improvising is so helpful in making the story so compelling for me.
