Re: Why the re-animated scenes of Dragon Ball Kai are so obvious?

It was just shoddily and hastily done. It's a shame because the regular remastered footage looks quite great but then the redrawn scenes stick out like a sore thumb.

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 7/1/19!)

Big thank you for affirming something I've always been saying regarding Gohan being OOC here: there's a huge difference between spontaneously flying off the handle and then being thrown out there and expected to engineer it to save everybody's lives.

Re: Vic Mignogna

I wonder who the former Funimation employee could be? A member of the staff? Nadolny maybe? (oh, wait, that was other problems) Remember how the Tekko CEO flipped out on Twitter when Montello called out the con? He finally responded to her emails only to go on self-pity rants. Note his irrational f...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

No series should feel obligated to include any demographic, especially not a series, especially not a series where even heterosexuality is merely treated as a means for Toriyama to produce a new character. Sexual identity and romance in general is sun a foreign concept to Dragon Ball I don't know wh...

Re: What was happening in the Dragon Ball series around your birth?

In the manga, Goku and Cell were fighting in the Cell Games. Huh, fitting that the specific part of the story that launched my Dragon Ball fandom to begin with happened when I was born :lol:

In the anime, Trunks was fighting Cell.

Re: Would you watch an entirely comedy based Dragon Ball spin-off series?

Absolutely, just for the absurdity of seeing these over-the-top characters in a situational comedy-setting.

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

You keep pointing to this but I don't think this was really meant to be taken literally as Daimao talking through Jr., but just fancy audiovisual methods of demonstrating that it's still the old Piccolo's soul. Does that not fit the definition of being both father and son? He has his father's soul,...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

They present him as the same person in the 23rd TB. Where exactly? I can't get my volumes right now unfortunately but I remember going over the manga at one point looking for a specific quote for this. Man we already said plenty of times the moments where they presented them as the same person. Jus...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

I've always thought this line from the 23rd Budoukai sums it up fairly well: " Piccolo Daimao will avenge Piccolo Daimao ". When was that said again? Piccolo said it himself I believe, somehwere in the downswing of the battle. I think right before he was about to fire the killshot on Goku when he b...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

I always just looked at Piccolo Jr as DBs version of the anti Christ. He's not Piccolo Daimao...but he is him too. He has his soul but in a new, autonomous consciousness.

Re: How do you rate Dragon Ball's creativity in fighting department?

You're starting to resemble thatdbzguy with all of these rapid-fire, single-minded posts about Toriyama's writing that are mostly just trying to be provocative.

Phil Parsons redubbed all of Sabat’s lines as Nappa in Bardock.

Re: Differences in FUNimation's movie dub(s)

I'm not aware of every single change between the single releases and the double features, but one notable change in Cooler's Revenge involves how the music is mixed during Cooler and Goku's fight. On the single release, the music is shifted down and warped slightly when Cooler and Goku are fighting...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

I don't know what is the problem here. Every media you cite here, are pictures and legacy of an era, they were created in. There were times, when African-Americans, were called black people. Those times, thank god, are gone and our society turns be small steps to be diverse and just. Uh...what? :eh...
