Re: Is it fair to say that Dragon Ball is no longer marketed to kids in North America?

Wow, the Deadpool movies? There's copious amounts of sex (or heavily alluded to) scenes in the first one alone. I can't really see myself letting anyone younger than sixteen see one of those. :lol: I still think it's funny that they made an edited version of Deadpool 2, that was a 15 rated film, wh...

They don't say Hercule in games anymore do they? Are they actually using Mr. Satan now?

Kinda wish I jumped on this sooner, I managed to get Level 1.2 from Australia for about £10 a while ago. I've never seen these in person!

Re: How did you feel the first time you saw Bulma's panties in Dragon Ball?

Is this arousal-bait or something?? Anyways, I'll just quote Goku on this one: "What do I care about your dirty old fanny??" He definitely didn't say fanny . Funimation Goku, then. Oh, I wasn't thinking, it's kind of an awkward translation since fanny means vagina in the UK. 🤷‍♀️ When I was doing m...

Anyway, any time I saw something like this in anime I just thought "Why, Japan?", but I don't care anymore.

I remember at the start of Yu-gi-oh, Yugi's showing the puzzle off and hopes it grants him a wish like the Dragon Balls.

Re: Some interesting info regarding the UK ratings of Z and the different dubs

I could have sworn CNX became a channel just as the Android Saga started, I remember I had Cartoon Network up to Trunks killing Freeza and then it moved to the new CNX and I had to go to a neighbour's house to watch it for a week until we got it.

Well, not entirely against it. There's a section where users share fan-edits of official products and users also PM each other with full DB content but okay, it's against piracy. :P
Oh I KNOW... but still, buy it, it's awesome, owning DB in Japanese is great!

Re: Site to read or get raw scans of DB manga in Japanese

This site is against piracy so I recommend buying them, you'll get a far better idea of the differences if you're actually holding the books, the quality is totally different.

I only own a few Kanzenban but I own all 32 volumes of the Full Color release, it's cool!

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Honestly, I've fantasized about being rich enough to fund my own crazy releases of Dragon Ball, highest priority for me would be getting Kanzenban sized versions of the Full Color release, with nice dust jackets, high quality printing, a brand new translation, the works. Remastering the anime (and r...

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

What's ironic is the Dragon Books included with the Dragon Box Z release has cropped widescreen screencaps, I think someone at Funimation definitely had an inverted brain when making these things. https://puu.sh/DiaG6/9dd4cf4b3e.jpg https://puu.sh/DiaG2/07d481b7f0.jpg https://puu.sh/DiaG5/9b1a4de68c...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I meant Shueisha. They censored Bulma smoking! Or Toriyama did, I don't know, he redrew a whole page and it kinda sticks out. I don't like the idea of Bulma smoking (c'mon, she's smarter than that!!), but I agree that redrawing the page just for that is weird. I like the idea that the smartest pers...

This has me imagining how intense the Cell Games could have gotten if out of nowhere Chappa-O, Namu, Giran, Panputt, Hacchan and Tsuru-sennin with new students showed up out of nowhere to fight Cell.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I'm willing to grit my teeth and give up a couple middle fingers if it means upgrading from the Funimation movie remasters to Toei's. But that means the terrorists win! I doubt we'd get Toei's BD releases, maybe for TV viewings but for a niche market like people who collect anime, they HAVE to use ...

Well they ain't censored.

I think they're fine other than the English credits and titles, though I've also heard people prefer the Dragon Box DVDs to the Funi Blu-rays, which makes sense considering the darker colors of the blu-rays.

Even on regular old TV we have a lot of sketch shows that parody other popular series or real-life personalities and everyone's pretty OK with that.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I hope they don't touch the titles or credits, it's a Japanese series, if you can't read the title cards then there should be subtitles. Changing them from Japanese to English is just annoying if you're a collector.
