Re: How DBZ on Cartoon Network worked? Please help explain

They actually did resume showing DBZ weekly on Toonami from like 2005 all the way until Toonami was cancelled in 2008. Bizarrely, I remember them showing the Ultimate Uncut episodes with minimal edits and then like midway through the Saiyan saga they switched to the Ocean Dub. By the time Toonami w...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

Movies 4 and 11 have been regarded as the biggest stinkers for at least as long as I've been in the fandom. Movies 6 and 7 have recently fell out of favor, although in all honesty I never saw a single negative remark about the former until that TFS behind the scenes video, then all of a sudden every...

Re: Are Power Scalers a cause or symptom of toxicity in the fandom?

I've always noticed that the power level squad never accounts for stuff like how guys can amplify their strength to crazy degrees for a Ki attack. It's literally the very first instance we see of Power Levels being shown as unreliable. Or worse, they treat everything like a card game and act like an...

Re: Are Power Scalers a cause or symptom of toxicity in the fandom?

I knew something was off when I made a thread on Reddit asking how people would rewrite the Buu saga and like 90% of the replies were about power scales and transformations. Uh, hey guys...what about the actual story and characterizations :eh:

Re: What parts of the franchise evoke nostalgia for you?

Definitely he Cell Games episodes, which is when I first started watching. Oddly enough, the karts that are most nostalgic for me are what was elusive to me in the early phases of my fandom - the movies, Buu saga, and so forth. I used to obsessively watch fabsubs and things like that to get to them,...

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

Not semantics, you don't give credit to the guy who makes his friends laugh with the Chris Rock routine. No, no it didn't. And the craze starts with Brian Drummond's delivery, end of story. Why does that video get the credit? Celebrities wearing shirts is promotion, not the same thing. You are givi...

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

Bleh, it's all semantics. That video inarguably skyrocketed it from fandom in joke to widespread meme. I mean shit, look at the considerable leap in October 2006, which, SURPRISE, is when that video first got uploaded: https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=%22over%209000%22 (hel...

Re: How was FUNimation able to afford all that licensed band music back in the day?

Has anyone ever asked any of the bands exactly how their music ended up in the films, come to think of it? There's no guarantee that they'd remember I suppose, but there's always the possibility. Actually, if I remember right, aren't some of the songs no longer in the dub scores as of any re-releas...

Re: Manga vs Anime: Story Arcs

I thought the anime handled the Piccolo art better. I liked Goku's vision quest to get the water as opposed to a more anti climactic retread of the Tao stuff and I hated how the manga handled Tien where he trained to learn the Mafuba and then...whoops, he broke the jar before he could even use it. T...

Re: Is the manga a little /too/ fast-paced?

Not all the time, but definitely in the Buu saga. Even beyond the frequently cited Goku/Majin Vegeta fight, there's just so much stuff that helped flesh things out for the Buu saga that's just completely absent from the manga.

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

The folly of censorship aside how would they go about this? Edit out General Blue entirely? Re-record lines? Do a Kai-style Frankenstein monster job with redrawn scenes? And while we're at it, edit Mr. Popo, Officer Black, and Killa's appearances too?

You see where I'm getting at.
