Re: Vic Mignogna

First of all, y'alls that keep calling Mike out, no one has been banned for disagreeing with him, even in this thread. He's just made counter arguments in disagreement. You guys are acting like him stating his own opinion is censorious or something and that's ridiculous on it's face. Second of all t...

Re: Vic Mignogna

BEFORE the ANN article I was viewing the accusations with skepticism due to lack of evidence, so I DO understand the innocent until proven guilty mindset here, no one should be joining in a mob action based on accusations alone. Between said article (with photographic evidence) and his own statement...

Re: Would you say that Dragon Ball in the west is more “mainstream” now than it ever was in the past?

Dragon Ball's been in the cultural zeitgeist for so long it's kind of hard to argue the mainstream level being different. We had burger king toys when Z was airing on Toonami, and even notably had an NFL announcer compare a tackle to a Super Saiyan back in the 2000s. Certainly, Dragon Ball Super's i...

Re: Why did FUNimation only release the Dragon Box Z?

Licensing, licensing, licensing. Basically, they only got to license the Dragon Ball Z Dragonboxes (and initially claimed to have licensed the movies, though they never responded to followup comment on that), and after that they didn't feel the need to license the others - or re-license the DBZ ones...

Re: Does Dragon Ball have the largest, least toxic, fandom in existence of fictional franchises?

You can certainly find disagreements a plenty in this community... about literally everything. But I wouldn't go so far as to say it's toxic - especially here. Honestly, one of my deepest regrets in life is how much I keep drifting from this community. I don't mean to, but I keep on ending up with s...

Re: Canon matters

You seem to really want to find a single canon - but there's no ONE way to decide what is and isn't in one. I understand the desire to make sense of the story and to a certain extent you can, but it's a giant franchise with what I'd argue are -several- canons that one could go by. One could go with ...

Re: Canon matters

Does canon matter? There's been a lot said here and there's a lot of great arguments made about this, and I more or less will be really boring and say both yes, and no. There's a valid argument to be made to check the continuity to a specific part of the franchise. For example, I think you're on saf...

Re: Kanzenshuu User's Favorite Movies Budokai ROUND 4

Well, I hate Broli and I still voted for his first movie over Cooler, voted against the second one because I legitimately adore movie 3, and, well, even Broli fans usually don't like movie 11.

That said, yeah pretty sure it's going to be BoG Vs. Movie 9.

Re: So how do the Funi VHS tapes compare to the Orange Bricks?

As someone who owns a near complete (which used to be complete, before I gave away the crappy ginyu dvds after getting dragon box 2), my biggest actual caution is that you are going to need a LOT of shelfspace for them - though compared to the VHS it should actually be less. It's threads like these ...

Re: Kanzenshuu User's Favorite Movies Budokai ROUND 2~

Honestly DB Movie 4's main issue is the excruciatingly slow pacing. It's not a bad idea in concept, the execution is just a bit lackluster. The look of it is really pretty though, so there's that.

Re: Kanzenshuu Members Favorite Series. ROUND 2!

I picked Kai for two reasons, the dub being one of them. The other is the significant improvement in pacing. I still love DBZ, enough that parts of the series I have bought four times (Pioneer VHS, 'Ultimate Uncut', orange brick, and dragon box), but I just prefer the accessibility of Kai.

I thought the last 2 going for #1 would be BOG and M13 but M13 is out and M12 which was my 2nd choice to go up against BOG has serious competition from M1 so I'm not even sure about that anymore. I do still believe that BOG will reach the top 2 but at this point I have no idea which movie it'll go ...

Re: Kanzenshuu Members Favorite Series.

Dragon Ball, because it will always be my favorite period.

Dragon Ball Z Kai, I love DBZ, but Kai in my opinion perfected it by removing a lot of pacing issues Z had.
