Re: Goku is a disaster as a father, according to Akira Toriyama

Didn't they pretty much acknowledge this in Dragon Ball Super when Goku was trying to convince Vegeta to go train with Beerus and Whis while Bulma was about to have Bra ("Bura" apparently)?

So, it seems that the series is very aware of Goku's shortcomings as a parent.

Re: My dream Dragon Ball home release

How would you go about remastering the footage, then? Since apparently when Toei was working on the Dragon Boxes, the film's colors were already fading, and even though they tried their best, there wasn't much they could do. I understand. But they still made the Dragon Boxes which are still to date...

Re: DBZ Remastered Dub

I feel like it's this really weird thing that has no place. It's not that the re-recorded performances were necessarily bad, but what was the point? I get why Sabat redid his Vegeta (to somewhat bridge the gap between Ultimate Uncut and the Ginyu stuff), but why did everyone else? It wasn't to make ...

Re: My dream Dragon Ball home release

wanting the level sets back doesn't cut it right for a ''dream release''. why settle for a just about decent BD from 2011 when you can dream of a new remaster for a 4K BD in 2022+. 8) Agreed. And as I've said, the footage that Funimation has on their possession will never be as good as it can possi...

Re: My dream Dragon Ball home release

I've heard some say the Level Sets actually look better then the Dragon Box. The Level sets are incomplete, lack the NEP and like most of Funimation’s release use the Dub episode titles and credits regardless if you watch it in Japanese. Slightly better picture quality doesn’t make them worth anyth...

It's just that you want a bunch of things to happen that will never happen with the Level Sets, so you kind of proved MasenkoHa's point. Aaaand now I'm discouraged I mean, I didn't mean to bring you down, but... did you think that they'd resurrect the Level Sets with broadcast audio and next episod...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I caved and bought these: I was reading the English manga and came across these: Now, I'm pretty sure that it's not "Turtle House" and Vegeta doesn't call Goku "Goku." So now they're just making obvious changes (unless I'm wrong... but I'll find out!). So, decided I want the original... just like m...

Re: My dream Dragon Ball home release

I just gave up on FUNimation by now. It's clear they'll never create a competent home release ever again. Which is why they need to GET THEIR DBZ LICENSE FUCKING REVOKED I don't think I agree with that. They've become the definitive English version of the series. But yes, their releases are absurd....

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

Uh, obviously Gokub beats Beerus and Beerus goes to sleep. But then, Goku is like, "Oh no! I'm too powerful! Where ever will I find an opponent that could rival me!?" And then he uses the Super Dragon Balls to wish that he would eliminate every form past Super Saiyan 3. And Vegeta's like, "Oh no! Yo...

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

At this point it is clear that Super is part of the Official Canon written by Toriyama, while GT isn't. Simply because what happens in Super clearly contradicts and overwrites what happens in GT. For instance, if Super and GT could fit in the same continuity, why didn't Beerus and Whis take actions...

I guess I'd be over-the-moon happy if Toei just did a Blu-ray release of the three series with no DNR or green tint off of the original film. I would be more than happy with that. As for Funimation releases, if they did their Level Set treatment with the original film. The Level Sets are highly reg...

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

Not to start something else up, but I wasn't talking about canon in my previous breakdown of why I felt badly for GT. It was more about feeling duped. Toei spent years selling its merchandise and at least had its chips in GT (so to speak). Then one day, it was suddenly like, "Thanks for buying the m...

Re: Can we talk about the Funimation Movie Soundtracks?

For what the US was retroactively applying the process to, they were done by in-house talent. Meanwhile if you notice, for US animation intros, it’s usually never the same person or people doing an intro for more than one different series (it’s almost always a one-off thing). I think that's because...

I never thought about it honestly. I assumed that my kids would be ignorant to the sensitive topics like I was--to me, it was just gag stuff.
