Re: What are all of the Toriyama works that Viz has translated so far?

The obvious big one is Dr. Slump, which Viz finished releasing into physical volumes ages ago, and I believe you can also buy it digitally. Beyond that, I think that's about it? For Toriyama-related releases, there's also the Dragon Ball Super manga as well as the recently released Yamcha spinoff v...

What are all of the Toriyama works that Viz has translated so far?

I'm trying to collect all of the Toriyama-related works that Viz has translated besides the main Dragon Ball story. This is the list I have so far: Sand Land - December 24, 2003 (collected) Neko Majin Z 5 - October 2007 (SJ) Cowa! - July 1, 2008 (collected) Cross Epoch - February 2011 (SJ) Kintoki -...

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

Here's how I think about it. Growing up as a kid going through puberty, it was awesome. Now that I'm over 18, it's really weird looking at 16 year old Bulma's cleavage. It's one of those things you got to keep in mind that it was a manga made in the '80's for young boys.

Why can't a man have a voice that sounds like Nozawa?

Re: Dragon Ball Movies 1-4 Now Available in HD on iTunes (with a hilarious error)

Does DB Movie 2 still have the half-frame rate problem? I haven't bought the movie but I did watch the trailer they had of it which is just a random clip from the movie and it looked like it had the same frame rate issue that is on the 4-pack dvd. And for some reason, that movie costs $5 more than ...

Dragon Ball Movies 1-4 Now Available in HD on iTunes (with a hilarious error)

I didn't see anyone mentioning this yet but I'll go ahead. Toei has now made Dragon Ball Movies 1-4 available in HD on iTunes. They said movie 3 was available on their Twitter page but I don't see it listed. What's funny about movie 1 though is that they call it "Dragon Ball Z: Curse of the Blood Ru...

Would you like Viz to include the Kanzenban ending at the end of their Super run?

I had a very interesting thought today: what if Viz included the Kanzenban ending of Dragon Ball in the last volume of their Super releases as a bonus? Seeing as how their 3-in-1s used the Kanzenban covers but not be an American release of them, we still didn’t get that ending in the states and I wo...

Con:
The arc itself makes movie 1 canon with the TV series, which just doesn't work in it's continuity.

Re: DBZ Blu-ray Orange Bricks are here to stay - "This is truly the best possible way to watch Dragon Ball Z"

While I have never and will never agree that it's okay to even crop a show the way these have, I don't believe the product is overall terrible. I personally think the video quality is great and, while the Japanese audio isn't perfect, it still sounds pretty good. This is how I own the show now. Yes...

That's what so risky about buying used nowadays. You really don't know what you're going to get until you pop the disc in.

Re: Do you still hate Dragonball GT?

I never hated GT. I went in with a very open mind and enjoyed it so much. I think if you go into it without any prior stigmas, you’ll like something about it. And I mean “you” in the general sense of the term.

Re: Does JP Goku really sound like a woman to a non watcher/follower of Dragon Ball? Or is it informed by cultural osmos

I honestly could never tell that Goku is voiced by a woman nor can I still! It’s weird because Goku’s voice doesn’t like male or female to me. He just sounds like Goku and I think that’s a true telling of Masako’s enormous talent in playing all these characters in Dragon Ball. The stigma that some p...

Does DB Season 5 have Piccolo on its disc art?

So, I’m shopping on eBay for Dragon Ball DVD sets and I come across a listing of the blue bricks and on the season 5 discs it shows what appears to be the same Piccolo art that’s on the season 4 discs. I’ve normally seen Teen Goku on the S5 discs and was wondering if FUNimation changed this on later...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

My unpopular DB opinion? I think GT is pretty good, even the TV special. It's not perfect by all means, nor is it better than DB, Z, or Super. But I really enjoyed it for what it was. I actually would have loved it if it went passed 64 episodes.
