Re: Episode #0430 (03 December 2017)

MY GOD. So a thing about me (Hi, haven't posted on this forum for a while but I still <3 you guys) is that I have never actually seen all of GT. Tried a couple times and I always tap out. SO, years ago when you started your GT Review of Awesomeness, I said "OK this is my chance to force myself to do...

Re: Episode #0416 (04 December 2016)

I was happy to hear Mike mention the mysterious Amazon listing. The fact that they pulled Macross, Southern Cross, and Mospeada out of Harmony Gold's clutches somehow gives me hope that Amazon is starting to throw some serious money around at classic anime and we'll finally have the Dr Slump TV anim...

Re: Dragon Ball Super to Simulcast on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, AnimeLab

It may have been covered a few pages back but with the live stream for none premium crunchyroll members you can watch it as it airs. Now what about if you can't watch it during the simulcast are you able to view it later on maybe 2 hours after or would you have to wait a day or two? Once they post ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super to Simulcast on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, AnimeLab

The way CR tends to work is that the stream of all old episodes are available for free, while the newest episode is behind a paywall for 1 week. It's not COMPLETELY clear if they are referring to this chunk of Future Trunks episodes + past episodes being free, or if even the newest episode will be ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super to Simulcast on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, AnimeLab

Surprised the main Kanzenshuu site hasn't posted this yet. Crunchyroll hasn't made a post yet either. I also find this interesting. ANN is often on the ball, but has been known to report misinformation, so maybe they're waiting for more details from other sources? I will say, I had retweeted someth...

Re: Dragon Ball 'Super History Book'

This book totally exceeded my expectations! SO much original art and sketches... the pencil version of the final Dragon Ball chapter is really really cool to see. There were way more tribute illustrations than I thought too! Including some Shonen Jump rookies who don't have the gravitas of Watsuki o...

Re: Episode #0392 (06 December 2015)

Yeah, as an example of how context for how you experienced the series influences what defines Dragon Ball music, I was totally with you Mike about Kikuchi being the truest essence of DB music. As soon as I hear his score, it grabs me by my bones. However I did not play any DBZ video games growing up...

Re: Why was Dragonball minus never animated into a special?

I'm curious -- it seems pretty universally disliked in English fandom (myself included). How did Japanese fans react?

Re: Dragon Ball 'Super History Book' and looking ahead to 20

Sounds like a very interesting book! As someone who doesn't read Japanese very well, I'm still on the fence about this one, although I REALLY want to see that chapter "storyboard"... Besides that, do we think it'll be filled with lots of pretty pictures? :think:

Re: Toriyama's working schedule

Eguchi: When you keep at it like that you end up dying at sixty, like Tezuka and Ishinomori. Urasawa: And then there’s Fujimoto [i.e. Fujiko F. Fujio], who died at sixty-three. They were all so proud of how little they slept — three hours a night or whatever. Eguchi: And their monthly production ra...

Re: Viz-isms (update: DB chapter 3)

I haven't actually bought any of Viz's One Punch Man volumes (just the Weekly Shonen Jump issues, which only list translators) so I can't check the credits, but OPM doesn't have anyone credited for an "English Adaptation", does it? Nope. The credits are pretty bare-bones. http://imgur.com/Xowmbp8.p...

Re: What is the obsession with Jaco here?

I think some of the love for Jaco does come with the context of the manga. After a long drought of substantial new Toriyama comics, we finally got a new series! And this was coming off the heels of the (in my opinion) very disappointing Kintoki one-shot. So, to have the 1st volume-length series in 1...

Re: Dr. Slump - The Movies

I think this set is great, and totally recommend it! Like the DB/Z movies, it assumes you know the characters, but honestly there's not too much you need to know about them. If you're confused, I'm sure a quick look through Wikipedia or something will catch you up. Or you could probably reach out on...

I did a Google Image Search and a few photos popped up. Looks like there was one for Dragon Ball as well. The book design is horrible.

EDIT: Upon further inspection, the photos are from this very forum.

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

Looks like the anime plumped Champa up even more from Toriyama's design :lol:

As far as simulcast, I hope it's coming. I don't currently pay for any streaming services but if FUNi (or by some miracle, Crunchyroll) simulcasts DBS, I'll subscribe for sure.
