Re: Why isn't Dragonball classified as a sci-fi anime series?

Because science fiction tends to be grounded in actual science, even if it's tenuous. Dragon Ball is a kung-fu series with whatever technology can make the jokes and/or plot move along but otherwise isn't given much thought.

Re: Congratulations Kara Edwards on marriage

Man she's 43? I had no idea she was that old. I guess I wrongly remember her in the early 2000's when she first started voicing Videl and Goten and she was only in her 30's then. Well, I mean, 2000 was a looong time ago now. She was only 24 when she started. For some reason my mind is always stuck ...

Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

1. maybe drop the argument. Not worth it my guy. 2. Even within subtitles, it's not a 1-1 accurate translation because again: you need to make it make sense for an english listening/reading audience. So when I play Yakuza, while I won't say that I can understand everything, I do notice things that ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Ah, so the main cast gets back to the arena and I guess Pan's perspective was a segway into that.

I'm guessing Vegetto will show up after Goku, sees what Bra did, and that's when the shit hits the fan.

Re: If Goku didn't marry ChiChi, which woman would you pair him with?

Suno was boring. Say one interesting thing about her other than “nice” and “had a crush on Goku” had she and Goku gotten hitched she would have been window dressing. Bulma as Goku’s wife could have been interesting I guess. Gohan’s character likely would have been more like young Trunks but less ar...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Yeah Chris Sabat's Piccolo and Yamcha also improved tremendously too and he doesn't get enough credit for that either. Also doesn't he still voice half the side characters? I'm pretty sure he still plays Kami, Mr. Popo, Shenron, I think Yajirobe and Ox King? Or did he give up some of them? Also doe...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The Cell saga and the early Boo saga was sort of the awkward transition phase for Chris Sabat’s Vegeta, between the Brian Drummond impression, and the more gruff voice that he would later be known for. FUNimation most likely believed that Sabat’s Vegeta voice at that point sounded close enough to h...

Re: TOEI doesn't understand Akira Toriyama's humour

Most of Toei's DB humor tends to fall into typical anime gag humor, while Toriyama's own style has a bit of a cynical bend. It's also why I never got upset about some of the most ridiculous escalations, like Goten and Trunks going Super Saiyan, because that's a classic Toriyama gag - this thing that...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Chris Sabat's Vegeta has improved so much since the old dub. As someone who most recently watched Kai and Super dubbed, I went back to DBZ's dub after a long time watching random Cell saga episodes...and man...it sounds so off. And this was AFTER he largely stopped trying to imitate Brian's Vegeta ...

Re: Funimation's 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

The thing with Gohan is he's more business-like in his approach with fights, but when he has a clear edge, he gets arrogant. He egged Cell and Buu on until they pulled desperate and dangerous ploys (Well, in the case of Buu, gave him enough time to run his charade). He and Piccolo even touched on th...

What's with some of these brain dead responses? First of all, Son was a naïve kid when he killed the Red Ribbon soldiers, second, notice how Goku tends to spare people who are more humanoid. Let's not forget Goku's selfishness allowing strong opponents to live so he can fight them again. It's simpl...

Didn't strike me as explicitly Dragon Ball but just large-scale cliche anime fights in general.

Though, as mute_proxy said - that power-up was 100% Dragon Ball!

Re: Why wasn't Goku teleported to Earth upon revival?

Goku and Piccolo kept their bodies in the afterlife, that's why they stayed where they were. Krillin's body was destroyed and Kami didn't pull any strings to get his body brought back. So his body would be revived where it was destroyed. Fair enough but then what about Goku? If he'd died on Namek t...
