Re: Serious Dragon Ball Questions For Fans About The Voice of Goku

Nozawa is Goku and so much of my fondness for the character is due to her performance. If she were to retire the only recast that springs to mind would be Romi Park. That said I think she’d need to be given the freedom to make the role her own rather than attempt to imitate the inimitable. Park wou...

A show about the Ginyu Force like this could be entertaining.

Re: DB could work as Cartoon Series?

He did writing for the worst season of Voltron Legendary Defender which is saying something about how incompetent he is at writing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Voltron:_Legendary_Defender_episodes Didn't know that! I've been meaning to watch Netflix Voltron but haven't gotten around to it...

Re: DB could work as Cartoon Series?

I love you Gaffer Tape but I thought you of ALL people would know better than to just put a franchise into some overrated writers hands and expect quality. Sure, Ben 10 had the late Dwayne McDuffie who had the herculean task of making Ben 10 more mature and palatable and ACTUALLY SUCCEEDING, creati...

Re: Is this Toriyama Signature legit?

I've always wondered, are there even any autograph authentication services in Japan like there are in America? I know PSA has an office in Japan, but I think that's mainly just for grading trading cards. I'd be interested to know about cel/genga/douga authentication as well. Obviously forgeries are ...

Re: Differences in FUNimation's movie dub(s)

I'm not aware of every single change between the single releases and the double features, but one notable change in Cooler's Revenge involves how the music is mixed during Cooler and Goku's fight. On the single release, the music is shifted down and warped slightly when Cooler and Goku are fighting ...

Re: Characters you like but everyone else hates

I never really got the hate for Uub, I think he's cute and the idea of Pure Buu being reincarnated into the form of a human boy is something I'm still waiting to see expounded upon in a satisfying way. Here's hoping for post-Z content from Toriyama at some point. I suppose I should also point out th...

Re: Why were 4:3 AR screenshots used on the Orange Bricks?

This line of releases is rife with false advertising, what's it matter if the screenshots on the slip cover don't accurately represent the product either? :lol:

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

They point of Kulilin's name is that it has "kuri/kuli" in it. The Japanese word for "chestnut". They all ruin the pun in the same way by misunderstanding the katakanas. I think maybe you don't realize that Funimation DID change "Bra" to "Bulla"... I don't see how what I said was in any way meant t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If you’re fine with Krillin , then you’d be fine with Bulla , rite? And her brother Tollanks ? And their grandpa Dr Bullif . You know, for consistency. How are these examples anything Ilike Krillin? I agree that Bulla and Bullif would both be ridiculous in place of Bra and Brief, two recognizable E...

Any screen shots? I think if we show FUNi what we'd like to see (if DNRing is an option) maybe it could get somewhere?
This video should give you a pretty good idea: https://youtu.be/xWNnAD7JvX8

But I think he specified that this is Toei's doing, and that the same happened with the previous movies.
Do they do this to try and discourage reverse importing?

Yeah, for instance like having Krillin in the subtitles instead of Kuririn or Tien Shinhan over Tenshinhan. :lol:
Krillin wouldn't be that bad, it's just a different romanization. Things like Tien Shinhan, Master Roshi, King Kai, Special Beam Cannon etc. would be totally fucking unacceptable.

For anyone hoping that the footage in the trailer might not be a reflection of the final product, I seriously wouldn't get your hopes up...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If the trailer is representative of the final product, what a shame. Pretty much 0% interest from me now unless more technical info is laid out.
