Re: Dragon Ball Z/3/Budokai Series Official Soundtrack CD's: Impossible to Find?

I don't know if plagiarism issues really had anything to do with it; those two game soundtracks are available on Apple Music. Also, I don't really fully totally see what the big deal is. Don't get me wrong -- if that's not what Toei wanted, then fine. But to make a huge deal out of it when for decad...

Re: DBS treated Goten and Trunks really bad

I've always felt that Goten 's existence was unnecessary. Goku and Chichi already had a son who had a lot of character development. Goten was never going to live up to Gohan and all throughout the Boo arc, he felt like he was just there to come bounce Trunks's dialog off of. Even that moment when he...

Re: Dragon Ball Episode of Bardock - Ten Years.

I feel like the Episode of Bardock was kind of killed off by Minus and then Broly. It's clear that the Bardock featured in the OVA was the same as the one who appeared in the TV special. Looking back at it, I guess it was just a fun little side story. I'm a lot less mad at it now than back then, to ...

Re: A potential 4K release of DBZ...

Well then, what was the point of quietly cancelling the Level Sets???? Why not just continue what they were doing and once they're done, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V the process for any and all future releases? While I understand there will be more formats in the future, they can just keep upscaling the film to ...

Re: A potential 4K release of DBZ...

Toei needs to hurry the hell up and make their own. TOEI aren't going to do it. They didn't even do a HD remaster for the 30th anniversary last year. Kai was their attempt but they gave up because it didn't do the business they hoped it would in Japan. Best case scenario at this rate is Funimation ...

Re: Is Mr Popo an alien too?

Never once thought of Popo as a black man nor a caricature of one. First of all, he is literally black, which is different than any other black character was portrayed in the series. He is very much unavoidably based on old timey racist black caricatures. The giant red lips, simpleton way of speaki...

Never once thought of Popo as a black man nor a caricature of one. First of all, he is literally black, which is different than any other black character was portrayed in the series.

Re: The Plausibility of the Boo Arc

Isn't everything convenient, though? Why was Goku sent to Earth? What are the odds that Goku would be sent to destroy a world that has people who look like him? Why did Gohan leave Goku of all people -- one of the strongest people in the world -- a Dragon Ball that set this whole story in motion? I ...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I've got all the Pioneer movie discs myself, albeit Dead Zone being the first run version with the CD jewel case minus cardboard package with World's Strongest and Tree of Might in the standard DVD cases. The dubs are by far the biggest reason to get these because they are the best/most accurate DB...

Re: For those of you who saw DBZ first...

My exposure to Dragon Ball was after Z, but before many people in the US. I got familiar with DBZ during its run in syndication. So, I was really excited for it to get into Toonami. That's when a lot of people I knew started getting into the series big time. At a mall, they had a store called "Sunco...

Re: Lalainia Lindbjerg's Bulma

Like the overwhelming majority of the pre-1999 Ocean cast, I think she was much better than her successor. I think her timing, acting, delivery, and overall voice was great. Even dating back to the original Dragon Ball, I really enjoyed her work, though she definitely improved going into Z. Vollmer ...

I can't wait to see how Funimation would mess that release up.

"If you thought Blu-ray was smooth, you haven't seen DBZeeee the way it was meant to be seen!!!"

After all, numerous research shows that DBZ is most desired when it looks like ass.
