Re: Is Dragon Ball Z Funimation's Worst English Dub?

Drummond's Vegeta has a fascinating fandom history. It was 1000000% derided by pre-FUNimation, existing fans upon its debut; in many ways, it was equivalent to the later Faulconer Production replacement score appraisal, where there was literally nothing positive said about it contemporaneously. Very...

Re: The All-Purpose Bardock & Goku Thread

You guys tried to predict Goku's reaction for years and failed miserably. What was your through process in writing up a comprehensive post and then ending it this way? From my perspective, it's like you wrap it all up and completely undermine yourself with this attitude. Why would anyone want to en...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Drop the attitude and antagonism toward other members. Account strikes will flow freely. For those with strikes already on record, that's not a good thing for your account longevity.

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

Last warnings/points/thoughts before account warnings:

I'm all for pedantry, but not when you're losing the entire point of the conversation.

Drop the accusatory language and attitude.

This thread isn't actually about canonicity.

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

It's always "well it's obvious that Hearts isn't canon", but the prime example I always like to go to is: How does the manga end? Does Goku give Oob Kinto'un? (i.e., is the original printing the canonical work, or is the revised version the canonical work? There are massively important and convincin...

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

Firstly, Copyright and intellectual property did not exist back then, because physical texts were much more difficult to copy and distribute.

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

The concept of canon was first applied to figure out which scriptures of the Bible were considered to be authoritative, and all of that was figured out by the followers of Christianity. They did not compile the Biblical canon through confirmation by God himself, they had to figure it out themselves...

That's just the thing: I don't use search options in forums. If I want to engage in a forum, I'm going to engage in recent topic activities.

Re: Necropost

I guess I'll weigh in. At some point I did some work condensing the overall forum rules page. It was overwhelming, intimating, and needlessly verbose to the point of confusion. It probably still is. At that point, I removed the "necroposting" item. It's rarely an issue, and when it does pop up, I or...

Is it safe to say that the anime is coming back now?
No. Why on Earth would you say that? There's no indication that they want to do a new TV series, there's no staff available at the moment, and there's no timeslot available at the moment.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

To an earlier point, I welcome the external criticism of "KANZENSHUU IS ALL POLITICS NOWADAYS". Goddamn, did anyone look at the Usenet posts I recently shared ? Anime fandom as a whole, nevermind within Dragon Ball itself, is a self-repeating cycle of the same conversions year after year with churni...

Re: Which year do you consider the start of the revival?

Yeah, it's a fair point and a bit of revisionist history. Completely ignoring the zero-Faulconer-appreciation FUNimation would have been receiving going into 2002 (the fans who liked it generally weren't old enough to go online and express this; I've told that Otakon story several hundred times, but...
