Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

Why is it such a problem that people like the original dub, nostalgia or not? Why is it a big deal that people like it more than the Japanese version? Does that stop anyone from enjoying the Japanese version? I don't think that it's damaging at all. I think Funimation's outlook on what makes for a g...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

In context, it definitely was monumental. It felt like Dragon Ball Z was on Toonami for years as we waited for these episodes. With all the cool advertisement and hype, I must've watched the commercial a million times, just rewinding and pausing it. "Is Vegeta right? Has Goku really become a legenda...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I just have a question that wouldn't make for much of a discussion.

Does anyone know the timeline for the Ocean/Westwood post-Namrk run of DBZ and the Blue Water dubs of DB and GT? When did they air and when did they finish airing?

Thanks in advance!

Re: You watched DBZ before DB and certain characters didn't make sense

As a kid, I kind of absorbed everything and got invested into the characters simply by them talking. I just accepted that Kurilin was Goku's best friend and that Roshi was Goku's master where there was mutual love and admiration. I also accepted that Piccolo was Goku's sworn enemy before Raditz show...

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

There's the flip side where maybe it wasn't that expensive to license that music. Dragon Ball Z was smashing its way into mainstream culture; it was immensely popular. Why wouldn't Disturbed and [Insert Name Here] want to give Funimation the rights to use their music? It's advertising for themselves...

Re: Was there any backlash to the pedophilia (Mai & Trunks) plot point in DBS?

I remember it being pretty split online , but don't really think there was any real backlash. It does make me wonder how it would be received if GT Goku (as a child) was drawn to be given Chi-Chi a kiss or if that version of Goku found some little girl on a distant planet that he started hitting on ...

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

For me personally, I understand what you mean. I breeze through the manga, but that's on me. I read very quickly and find myself just kind of quickly glance at the panels with no dialog for a split second. If you use your imagination and read it more of how it would sound rather than speed reading, ...

Re: Petition to use SS, not SSJ, as an abbreviation for Super Saiyan

I love the idea of a petition. It tickles me in certain ways to think that there's someone out there that thinks that a bunch of "signatures" from like-minded people, should dictate others' artistic vision (like a movie, book, or TV show), or in this case, preference. I'm astounded to think that so...

Re: Should Funimation as a Company, wipe the slate clean.

I DO think that FUNi should wipe the ENTIRE slate clean and recast the ENTIRE dub cast (and should've done so decades ago), but the reasoning should have NOTHING to do whatsoever with this leaked outtakes nonsense, and everything to do with all of them simply being godawful terrible actors who suck...

Okay... And then this eye-rolling nonsense gets leaked and everyone's in an uproar. I'm just saying that given their actions and comments, I'm not surprised. I'm also saying that based on their actions and comments, I don't see them as professional representatives of the series to begin with -- just...

Re: Should Funimation as a Company, wipe the slate clean.

I don't know if there's anything more troublesome than any other cast of people, to be honest. The Vic situation is pretty unpredictable and can happen anywhere. I'm the type of person who wouldn't want to rock that boat. Then it becomes "What do we do with this ongoing franchise?" Will they recast ...

Re: I'm done with the dub UPDATE

Greatness, I find your logic specious at best. I've seen plenty of interviews and they clearly like the series and respect it but can keep it all in perspective, as in, it's a goofy fighting cartoon aimed at children. I really haven't. Every Blu-ray special feature that I see makes my head hurt wit...

Okay, so I'm just going to not talk about the Vic thing, but more to the "bloopers." I don't care. I didn't find any of it funny any more than them saying "poopy, kaka," and blowing raspberries into a microphone. And I'm not at all surprised at any of it. I mean, has anyone ever heard their intervie...

I feel like the real magic trick (that someone like myself can't figure out yet) is being able to sync that audio to the video. There are lots of variables: brief pause time before the intro, commercial break, next episode preview, etc. Even if you manage to sync the first half of the episode, the ...

I don't know if whatever state is in question, has a more narrow interpretation, but federal defamation is communicating an untrue statement about someone to someone else in a way that communicates authority (i.e. not saying "in my opinion").
