Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

I'd say, only "hope" for proper, not limited 4:3 DB/DBZ/GT release, is Discotek Media, unlike Funimation, I'm almost 100% certain, they would prepare best possible release, maybe even with broadcast audio? :) If they could use laser disc footage for Project A-Ko, then I'm sure they would at least at...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butouden" Official Discussion Thread

I ve recently started playing it, and..it has worst story mode and what-ifs i ve seen in DB game, "I must be (insert random reason) that's why i ve lost" and that's it, that's entire what-if, and story goes as it would normally. They made Goku such unlikeable jerk towards Gohan too...

Re: Do you still enjoy non-canon Dragon Ball content?

I ve noticed with lots of other media, that canon is something that keeps changing, and personally, I'm not fan of new canon stuff (Goku being selfish, and having Superman origin, rehash of old ideas and even stuff from fanfics) and stick to original manga/anime, new Broly and Beerus/Whis might be ...

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

Giving Cell a senzu bean had ZERO negative consequences whatsoever (nothing would have changed if he didnt), since he knew that Gohan's hidden power was enough to stop Cell regardless. Majin Vegeta was the bigger immediate threat at the time (and there was no way Vegeta could be talked out of fight...

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

I completely agree, and what makes it worse is how much he developed in the original manga and even the movie that kick started this revival, BOG. Goku from the Piccolo Jr. arc is easily the best interpretation of that character. He's charismatic as all hell and the thing that arc really pushes is ...

Re: State of the Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z Broadcast Audio?

We know it did. Chris Sabat specifically said that the leak destroyed his enthusiasm to get it used on a release. Before the leak, his literal words to me and my fellow audio hunters when we first sent along the Z episodes were "I will do everything in my power to get this used on a Funimation rele...

Re: What is your estimation of Toriyama as a writer?

Toriyama is kinda like George Lucas, he was pretty good writer, but now..his scenarios are definition of safe, and so many new canon stuff are either eye brow raising, or head bumping against table.

Re: Dragon Ball Z Level Sets or Dragon Boxes?

Problem is, at the end of the day, Level Sets stil used 3rd rate master, i would love to see how it would look if original masters were used, sadly, knowing Toei, while not as bad as Funimation, they would just remaster it automatically and upscale it.

I kinda "blame" games for that, since fanmade DBZ Mugen 2 from 2000, Broly was shown as overpowered Goro/Shao Kahn level of cheap.

Re: Ginyu had different plan (regarding Goku)

I have yet to watch latest Broly movie :) And it might be true, but still, Freeza was paranoid of Saiyans from beginning, and if we add whole whole trouble Vegeta gave him on Namek, even knowing it's Ginyu, seeing him in Saiyan body, with PL that already rivals/surpass his 1st form...

Re: Is Vegeta a racist/saiyan supremacist?

He was also obsessed with full blood, he called Gohan "filthy halfblood" at least few times. It is actually interesting, why Vegeta grew up to be like this, with real life monarch, you can argue they were all raise that way, beliving themselves to be above "peasants" but since Vegeta was little kid,...

Re: Ginyu - An Honorable Warrior?

I think "our timeline" 17 might be most honorable, he let 18 had 1 on 1 fight with Vegeta, and even warned other "If any of you intervene, i will jump in" and later on, he fought with Piccolo solo, even after he find out he got as strong as him.

Ginyu had different plan (regarding Goku)

Idea came to me as i was re reading some of DB Multiverse chapter, What if Ginyu realized, that Freeza might want to kill him, if he find out he obtained such powerful body, and Saiyan one at that, so he can get even stronger, and decide to change bodies with Goku, and before he realize what happene...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

It summarises how seriously DBZA took itself towards the end that Mr. Popo's power level is now being discussed. As Lani explained at points, though, they were going to make it more in the vein of seasons 1 & 2 tone-wise when they were still writing it. Personally, I'm sad that we couldn't see Seas...

Question, did Salagir made fun of GT and its writing a couple of times? If so, he really shouldn't do it, as his writing make DBGT look like masterpiece...I probably won't post new pages until October :)
