I spoiled small details and main villains. Thing was it was still surprising. Since I really didn't see any pictures the transformations and the shocking moments were pretty much all in tack. Mostly I got my spoilers from the video games like Gokuden and Dragon Ball Legends. But again I couldn't rea...

I still could've shown that Gohan was 9 throughout the Android/Cell arc. Does the Daizenshuu list specific dates for events or do they just list years?

Does anybody else not like how the entire Garlic Jr. arc had better animation than canon arcs? Just kinda seems like you'd think that Toei would've used lesser animation on filler rather than non-filler arcs.

Re: Son Gohan's Mystic Potential

Gohan's power had decreased before Old Kaioshin unlocked his potential. Vegeta noted at the 25th Budokai and when he fought Dabura that Gohan's wasn't anywhere near the level he was when he fought Cell. Another question that I want to touch upon is Gohan's inability to go Super Saiyan. I've heard so...

I love how there is a video on YouTube where Chris Sabat blatantly says "None of us really knew how to write for the show, and we had no idea what we were doing back then."

Speaking of the 23rd Budokai, did anybody else see the blood censorship? There wasn't that much blood flying when Goku headbutted Piccolo this time if I remember right.

Goku then explains that he heard from Kami-...

I knew this was going to be a "talking" episode but I'm still impressed. The only things I didn't like this were some of the cuts from the original anime dailogue/footage. I found it odd that they cut Raddtiz's line about Gohan's power level not being a error since I'm assuming that was important in...

As always I like Kikuchi's music for Dragon Ball related things. I've got one real gripe though, Kikuchi's music was awesome throughout all 153 episodes of Dragon Ball, in the "Z" arcs it was awesome up til when Trunks came around. It wasn't as good outside of a few tracks, then in the Buu saga it w...

Cause Toei can't think of anything better than a Genki Dama (Z Movies 1-4), a 'beam' or a beam struggle (Z Movies 5, 6, 10, 12), or just random douchbaaggery like Toei Punch (Z Movies 7, 8, 9) and "Ryu-Ken!!!!!" to beat bad guys.

What accent did they give General White? And who's Great Lee? Russian stereotype.

I find the dub voices for Killa, Namu, Great Lee, General White, and Muraski more offensive than anything Toriyama/Toei have drawn containing black people. I mean at least in the Japanese version they all sounded like people instead of fueling the "DoragAnBalls iz RACisT" BS. EDIT: I should've menti...

I'd still rather have Dragon Ball's filler rather than the current Shounen anime angle where they tack on 20+ episode arcs. Like seriously the closest Dragon Ball gets to a long ass filler arc is the Garlic Jr. arc which is only 12 or so episodes and isn't that bad compared to 80 episodes of Naruto ...

I didn't even notice that Nozawa was a woman until I looked. I just thought, "Hey he's got the same voice as a chibi and as an adult so they didn't change it."

"Ippai Oppai"?

After I learned that Ippai means "A lot" and Oppai is slang for "boobs" do you think that those lyrics to "We Gotta Power" really were supposed to mean "A lot of boobs"? I know it's completely random but somehow I think it makes since :P.
