I mean she's an actress, not a fan.

Re: Japanese vs English names

At this point I only watch the Japanese version and call almost everything by their original Japanese names. Even when I'm with friends and family more familiar with the English version. (Unless I forget the name of an attack completely then I'll call it by the dub name.) The only exception for me ...

Re: Should Dragon Ball Have Stopped After Cell?

As someone who enjoyed the Boo arc more than the Cell arc, I'd day that I'm glad the series moved past Cell. That was such a sour ending to be honest. And after Freeza, Cell just felt a bit overwhelming. Yes, the stakes were high with the androids and Cell, but Freeza felt more like a threat. If Fre...

Re: Japanese vs English names

Not to speak to VegettoEX, but Goku's name is different than "Vegeta," "Bulma," "Baby," and other names based on English word. Goku's name isn't based on a non-Japanese word and it is pronpunced as "Go-kuu" rather than "Gou-ku." This is a case of where the name is mispronounced rather than adapted.

Re: Japanese vs English names

It's not how I spell or pronounce them either--I just imagine the Japanese voices saying the names and in my head, Nozawa says "Bejita" and "Piccoro" instead of "Vegeta" and "Piccolo" because that's just how it is. It is funny to think about the scenario you laid out, though. The best example that ...

Re: Japanese vs English names

A pretty recent development is that I pronounce the names in Japanese (in my mind) whenever discussing them. So, even though Vegeta is Vegeta, in my mind, I'd legitimately have it as "Bejita." I would caution that you're not being faithful at all with this kind of mindset. This is something I see s...

Re: Characters that should rock facial hair

I think it would be funny if Yamucha ended up bald on to, so he'd have a combover and to balance that out, he'd grow a beard.

Re: Should Canon Characters become Non Canon?

I could do with a reboot of Roshi. I think it's okay that he's attracted to women and pervy and all, but some of his more hands-on moments and the like are in poor taste. We know that there are scumbags out there like that, but we're not meant to root for them. So, I'd be okay with Roshi getting rew...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

Yup, and while I've seen plenty of people want to see more, I also see a whole hell of a lot of "X should be canon" and the sentiment boils down to if it's not, it's somehow lesser for it. I guess lots of people want to get that stamp of approval from the creator instead of having a piece of the fr...

I guess lots of people want to get that stamp of approval from the creator instead of having a piece of the franchise that they like be on the level of well-funded fanfiction. There is something to be said for being official. And while you might not care about that, lots of people do. And it brings...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

I'll be honest now that I know of Super Broly's character, I do genuinely want to see more of him and how he develops. I think he meant moreso that the immediate reaction to Broly in Super wasn't "Broly's back!" but rather "Broly's finally canon!" Yup, and while I've seen plenty of people want to s...

Re: Is Yo! Son Goku and his friend return! Canon?

But how can you imagine something is fact without any basis for it? The most asinine thing is when someone has one of these unsubstantiated "facts" that get contradicted by the real story and then they get all upset about it. That's really what the problem is--you can make whatever fanfiction you wa...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

Hell naw. I do not want Dragon Ball to pull even more stuff from the past, just make new characters that are good. A trend of "non canon" characters becoming "canon" would be incredibly boring. :yawn: I agree with this for the villians who got their chance. But if Goten is going to be getting a gir...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

And I want to share my retort - We're saying "it exists" because throwing something out of continuity or not including it in continuity doesn't invalidate it. Hell, making non-canon characters canon doesn't "validate" them. Claiming something is validated because they are canon is the meaningless s...

Re: Bea's GT Viewing Experience

I'm glad you're enjoying it. I think the only real thing that you'd have to know from Z/Kai before stepping into GT (almost said "stepping into the Grand Tour," which you might not get, as that was erased from Funimation history) is what happens with Oob in the last episode, and the relationship bet...

I really don't want to kick up any dirt and am almost surely going to regret typing this, but I've kind of had enough of this "it still exists!" thing that people use with GT and other non-canon material. It's like this weird meaningless consolation prize. I'm glad that we're all in agreement that t...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

What purpose does making these characters canon serve? Dragon Ball GT is still a thing that exist. Why do fans act like Toriyama/Shueisha/Toei literally wiped all traces of GT from existence? They exist the same way that movie 8, 10, and 11 Broli and Gogeta existed until the latest movie and they a...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

I pretty much agree with everything that VegettoEX said. I was pretty happy with Dragon Ball's end. I wasn't even thrilled with the anniversary specials/movies because I didn't want anything tainting my favorite franchise of all time. But, since we're in the thick of things with Super, I enjoy it.
