Re: Super retelling BOG and ROF

I'm curious if the "two years after Majin Buu's death" Jump 2008 special will be kept.

In the "for" category:

How crazy is Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan in '08?

(Context: Goku shoots a Kamehameha... turns blue, and stays that way after the shot.)

Re: Revival of F Vocal Recording This Week (+Otakon Vegas Re

...? I know this thread is primarily about the news that voice recordings for the new movie will start up soon, but this sticks out as a bit of a "wait, what?" comment to me. Being fully aware of Ace's character arc and resolution, I'm really not seeing it. Furukawa had always viewed Ace's cross ta...

Revival of F Vocal Recording This Week (+Otakon Vegas Recap)

This weekend was Otakon Vegas , and one of the spotlighted guests was Piccolo himself, Toshio Furukawa. During Q&A, I asked about how "Revival of F" work had been, and was surprised that outside of the lines viewed in the trailer (which he was quick to perform for the audience) the recording doesn't...

Mike pointing out Movies 1-3 original dub is very, very important. It's what made me into an anime fan. I HATED Dragonball Z on Cartoon Network. Mocked the hell out of my younger brother for watching the crap. It wasn't until I saw part of the second movie (with the original soundtrack and a decent ...

Keeping the e-mail's flowing... To Whom it May Concern: I am delighted with FUNimation's acquisition of the "Dragonbox" masters from TOEI. I have made many FUNimation purchases in the past (all of Fullmetal Alchemist, various One Piece products, and more), but have always resisted buying the entiret...

Holy. Shit. I know that Dragonball is by far FUNimation's most profitable license... but I never thought they'd actually release a proper version of Dragonball Z in my lifetime. If we could just get an un-borked with copy of the manga outta Viz. ANYWAYS. Much celebration, and kudos to FUNimation.

I guess I was referring more to the "Which Viz release is the 'least offensive' to a purist" comment more than any of the others. As the original poster who made that comment, I am frustrated. There are how many releases of this 42 volume series? At least a half dozen, and I think only one format m...

Is there an acceptable translated version of the manga?

I'm sick and tired of not owning all forty-two volumes of the manga. Does there exist a translated run of the whole shebang that doesn't call Satan "Hercule" and other pointless censorship? If not... what's the "least amount of wincing" I can get by with? Viz has only released the series... how many...

Hey I think that BGM is matter of habit......

As a strong proponent of Japanese-only, the cropping was an issue for me in the release of Z, mostly because it was poorly done and I had so much of the series in 4:3. Something about the episodes of Kai not matching up to the numbering of Z "alleviates" some of that stress for me, and also the crop...

Is it just me, or does Piccolo somehow sound more awesome in crappy mono? Le sigh. Overall, though, I liked it. Got quite a few friends that have been interested but afraid of "Drag-On Balls", so the shorter runtime will be a plus with them. New music is good, but not as memorable, I think. We'll se...

They could always whip out the original pitch hitter... Kōichi Yamadera.

That would be one helluva great stand-in.

I, for one, am excited about just retouched animation. The animation was/is good. Framerate is better than a lot of animation. I would be fine with just seeing mistakes corrected in this process. And maybe a few of those crappy noses. But, other than that, count me very much in for not throwing out ...

Stridex, how do you feel your thing would play in 20 minute episodes? I'm not trying to insult your comments, I just would like to know. Well, the thing about Dragonball is that it doesn't REALLY work as episodes in the first place. The story meanders a lot. I mean... using what I'm most familiar w...
