Re: What IYO is the best and worst ending to a DB saga?

I don't find the Resurrection 'F' / Golden Freeza ending (or, like, entire story arc all all comprehensively as a whole) to be interesting, but I wouldn't call it unsatisfying. Nothing about it registers a single emotion out of me. Total ambivalence. I love the ending to the Future Trunks / Goku Bla...

Re: What would DB fandom look like now if there was no post GT content?

I know that you have a sort of scribe mindset when it comes to these topics, I get it to some extent, but I also don’t quite get why the existence of new content has to be treated as such a big roadblock? The flow of new content coming in may be disruptive when you’re trying to catalogue everything...

Re: What would DB fandom look like now if there was no post GT content?

I’d be perfectly content, and we would have been able to focus on *a lot* more important historical stuff here on the site! 😂 One of the things that attracted to me about anime and manga at the time of my discovery was that they seemed to all have actual beginnings, middles, and ends. You could just...

Re: DRAGONBALL Z BUDOKAI TENKAICHI 4 HYPE

Re: Could the Moro and Granolla Animated Adaptations get the same hype as Black and ToP?

Obligatory "there is no official announcement or indication of Dragon Ball Super returning to serialized television broadcast". That said, something I haven't seen brought up in this thread yet is the voice cast. Norio Wakamoto brought new depth to Cell that wasn't necessarily there in the...

Re: List of dubs for some ''difficult to acquire'' Dragon Ball OVAs and Specials

It's probably worth noting what some of these releases actually are and where/how to find them, considering we are in fact talking about official releases here. The aforementioned French dubs of Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans and Episode of Bardock were included on the " Golden Box " ...

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

Google Translate is not sufficient for anything other than possibly getting the broad strokes of something, particularly niche topics. There are countless omissions and inaccuracies I can already see in that.

Re: Schemmel says that Nozawa told him they wanted to replace her for the role of adult Goku

I don’t know what else to tell you. This 2013 panel conversation that I shared is almost certainly the origin of “the story” here, as seen by Schemmel being the one to initiate it at that point in time. If he’s telling it differently these days, that’s either (1) he forgot the context for the origin...

Re: Schemmel says that Nozawa told him they wanted to replace her for the role of adult Goku

I mean I've had dub voice actors lie to my face about stuff so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyway, I did the leg work here. Indeed, the source of this story comes from the "We Are Goku" panel from Animamzement 2013 with Sean Schemmel and Masako Nozawa. Early on in the panel there comes a kind of tossaway co...

Re: Schemmel says that Nozawa told him they wanted to replace her for the role of adult Goku

But that's patently ridiculous, because we have recordings of the original broadcast. We know exactly what it was and how it sounded. There was no opportunity for there to suddenly be a single-week-turnaround on replacing Nozawa based on fan backlash. Those episodes would have already been in produc...

Couple things about that! In the manga, we see it was actually "JETAP": https://www.kanzenshuu.com/misc/trunks-drinks-jetap.jpg I don't know what that might have been a reference to. Maybe it was a variation on a brand name, maybe it was a play on someone's name... who knows? Something cha...

Re: Schemmel says that Nozawa told him they wanted to replace her for the role of adult Goku

If this information has a source, it likely would have been their duo panel from Animazement 2013- https://www.kanzenshuu.com/2013/05/27/animazement-2013-day-3-report/ I didn't note anything about that specific story in my write-up there, so that probably says something.

Re: Dragon Ball's spiritual successor

I meant that a lot of people love the original but don't watch Super. On youtube, a lot of people say that "Dragon Ball ended years ago" and treat DBS like a spinoff. Agreed with Julie. Who cares what randos say? If you want to talk to them, great. If you don't, great. But also: That's al...

The Trunks TV special is kinda baked into my fandom DNA!
