Re: Toei Animation celebrates 30 years of DragonBall Z with new licensing deals, products and events!

My first though upon hearing about the Symphonic Adventure Concert was "Oh no, please don't be the dub music." But then I thought, "They probably aren't going to go through the trouble of re-arranging an entirely separate concert". Besides, North America is likely far more familiar with Kikuchi's mu...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I can only speak for myself, but I'm almost sure this also applies to those who discussed this yesterday in that we're not discussing this "just for the sake of a debate". You're not the only one who takes this seriously and you'd have known that if you had actually read our posts because you're ma...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I hesitate to add my voice to the mix because there's absolutely nothing I can offer, from any perspective, that others haven't already perfectly conveyed. But at the same time, not talking about this feels like a disservice to the victims who have courageously embraced the responsibilities, risks, ...

Re: DB's Revival

I think DB is immortal, not because it keeps going, but because it is popular and keeps pulling in fans, just like films such as Jaws, Back to the Future, and The Wizard of Oz. Not saying it is or isn't as good as those films, just giving examples of works that have a life past their initial run. O...

Re: DB's Revival

In recent years, my attitude towards entertainment has changed. A side effect of getting older, I guess, with more and more things vying for my attention. And it feels so weird saying this, because I vividly remember being a fan in the mid-2000s and desperately starving for something, anything new. ...

Re: The Different Versions of GT's Theme Songs

I just found this set on vinyl (my ZARD discography book lists it only as "analog" so I don't think it's available on CD). They are nice mixes, but nothing too special. I want to try recording the tracks to MP3 some time this week. Maybe I can put up some samples if anyone is interested. Thanks for...

Re: The Different Versions of GT's Theme Songs

Awesome find! I've tried to comb through the tracklists for every CD single/album from each artist, and I found a few others. 1997 CD: "Double Front Project Remix - Don't U See!" Apparently a very limited five-track CD containing various remixes and edits of "Don't You See!" in the same vein as the ...

The Different Versions of GT's Theme Songs

Hey, everyone! We're pretty much all familiar with Dragon Ball GT 's five theme songs... "Bit by Bit, You’re Charming My Heart" (Opening Theme, Insert Song) "I’m Not Alone" (Ending Theme) "Don’t You See!"

Re: Episode #0420 (05 February 2017)

Great predictions! Too bad the rest of the crew couldn't get in on the fun. It's always a great time when everyone has to hold themselves accountable for their bets. It boggles my mind that Kajika and Neko Majin still don't have collected releases over here. Viz seems to really, really play up Toriy...

Always fun to hear this story re-told. Great episode! I think it's worth noting that the compilation albums/sets mentioned do include other songs composed by Yamamoto ("Battle-Colored Warriors", "Brain Dance", "A Golden Compass", "My Magician", the pre-Final-Bout video game themes, and many more...)...

Thanks very much, you two!

My mistake regarding May 7th. I could've sworn that was mentioned somewhere. Thanks for the correction.

I completely forgot about the Cell Game dates as well. Thanks again!

Re: What if Beerus met Great King Yamma?

That was actually just an assumption on my part, so I apologize for the confusion. Someone more knowledgeable with in-universe stuff would have to confirm the exact hierarchy, I'm afraid.

Though I still suspect that Enma's reaction to Beerus would be the same.

Calendar Dates In The Manga

Howdy, everyone! I've got a quick question for all the timeline nuts out there. I'm browsing through Herms' " The History Of Ever " guide in hopes of finding a list of calendar dates that are confirmed within the manga itself. Basically, I'm looking for dates that are outright stated by either the c...

Re: What if Beerus met Great King Yamma?

Compared to Enma, we've seen those of higher rank (Kaiō / Kaiōshin) and lower rank (Shenlong) respond to him in a nearly identical fashion. "O-Oh, the fearsome Lord Beerus! Fancy meeting you here! What a lovely surprise! Please leave, please leave, please leave! Well, if you'll excuse me... *runs aw...

Re: Dragonball Movie 2 and 3 Redub

Both dubs (especially "Devil's Castle") serve as neat time capsules for those who like to track FUNimation's history. But aside from that, they're completely archaic and I'm amazed that they weren't redubbed back when they were working on the original television series or recording that "revised dia...

Re: Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butouden (3DS)

I'm very thankful for the patch. Here's hoping we can receive another one later down the line with Botamo, Frost, and whatever that fifth Japanese update brings us. Training Mode is much appreciated, and I'm still surprised it wasn't in the game from the get-go. It's nice to be able to sit back and ...

Re: Anyone miss Tiffany Vollmer?

To quote a short post I made a couple years back... While Vollmer can get over-the-top, she just needs a good director to set her straight. I clearly remember the re-dub of the Fake Namek episodes (directed by Mike McFarland) in which Tiffany Vollmer and Sonny Strait just used their normal voices (w...

Re: Best BGM CD Release?

We're only talking about Shunsuke Kikuchi's music, right? In that case, I would definitely start with the three-disc BGM Collection . It's the most comprehensive Dragon Ball Z BGM set to date. This doesn't include everything (far from it!), but you're getting some of the most popular compositions. T...

Re: Dragon Ball Godly Best

At 19 tracks per disc, they more than likely just ran out of space and didn't want to produce a 3-CD set. As for how they decided which songs to be cut, your guess is as good as mine. I would suspect that the GT songs required a bit of extra cash to sub-license from a different record label, but I d...
