Re: The Baba Arc should be rolled into the RRA Arc

Pretty sure the Kanzenshuu labels are just based on the Dragon Box booklets.

Y'all really can't help yourselves, huh? I don't really see what purpose this thread serves anymore. This place doesn't have an off-topic forum for a reason and all this thread is good for is people incoherently flying off the handle about politics now and I've seen planetnamek drag conflicts here i...

Welcome to 1992. I'm a fetus, so I have no idea how I'm even typing this.

Re: [DONE] Dragon Ball Z Kai: Bruce Faulconer/American OST Edition

3 cheers for the best English dub of Dragon Ball actually being watchable!

I'm so traumatized by Kikuchi Kai's rotating collection of the same 20 songs.

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Who actually came first and potentially inspired the other, anyways? Looking at official dates, I would think LittleKuriboh got to Freeza first, but I could be entirely misreading the facts. It could even be that they were completely separate but coincidentally similar in delivery. Little Kuriboh w...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

LittleKuriboh as Frieza is A+++ casting.

It's funny, because the voice of Frieza that plays in my head winds up being a weird mishmash of Ayers and LK's :P

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Frieza also had a bit of a recurring "theme", mainly two or three synth notes that were used to denote his presence in various different songs throughout the Frieza saga. Yeah, the notion that the Faulconer score didn't have leitmotifs is completely bogus. Every character had a recurring melody or s...

Re: FUNimations push to "uncut"

I doubt Psaros had much impact, much in the same way I don't think TFS had much impact as per the other thread. I think FUNi was responding to a growing trend of dubbing companies editing anime less and less. Well, TFS, I think, had a little bit of an impact. By the time FUNi got the license to Kai...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

Yeah 9 year old me was surprised by how raunchy all that stuff was when I first saw it on Toonami, knowing it was edited down too. Episode 6 kept quite a bit of those antics...I honestly think the only things removed were naked Bulma, the part where Yamcha mistakenly squeezes her boobs and then they...

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

Since the Ginyus were a gajillion times more interesting than Zarbon and Dodoria, I would've just dropped the latter and made them Frieza's goon squad accompanying him to Namek from the very beginning. Vegeta spends the arc evading them and picking them off one by one. Recoome beats the tar out of h...

Re: Why doesnt Roshi wish to be younger?

Cheating time is definitely something Roshi would be fundamentally opposed to. The single biggest part of his character arc was seeing that the world of martial arts had passed him by and stepping aside for the new generation. That's like asking why Goku or Vegeta wouldn't wish for more strength. O...

Re: Team Faulconer - Singles vs Orange Bricks

snip This definitely not the case. They clearly used an unfinished audio take, probably so they could have a 5.1 mix. Aside from differences in filters and music placement, there also numerous instances where there are dialogue that wasn't present in the singles that are there in the remastered ver...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

It’s like you never watched past the first arc of Dragon Ball or something. Starting your argument by poisoning the well doesn't give me much faith that continuing reading is worth my time. I'm not interested in having these back and forth, mean spirited debates over an anime. As I explained last t...

Re: Team Faulconer - Singles vs Orange Bricks

The music differences aren't really that frequent outside of the initial run of Ginyu episodes. Besides that, the music placement is pretty much the same. The more significant differences are dialogue in certain spots. The worst case of music placement differences is actually outside the series - Mo...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Chis is one of the basic foundations of martial arts fiction. There's an entire subgenre of martial arts/kung-fu fiction that's all about strange chi attacks, fighting space aliens, and obsessive warriors. You're applying arbitrary, and extremely myopic definitions of martial arts to try to differe...
