Re: Let's Play DBZ Legend of the Super Saiyan (SNES RPG): How to beat it quickly and easily!

Love seeing... well, love for this game. I always really liked how it had some crazy non-canon stuff like the mimic Saibaimen, being able to take everyone to Namek and making Piccolo fuse with a bunch of different Namekians. Plus, the card battle system was kinda cool. I just wish the encounter rate...

Re: SNES fighting games: content overview

I had absolutely no idea about those unused portraits in SB1. It kind of blows my mind that stuff like this was hidden all along, and somewhat in plain sight considering the debug mode code has been on TCRF for quite a while! It's also interesting that there doesn't seem to be any other trace of the...

Re: Track By Track, the Complete Song Collection Box

This is a pretty cool thread idea. I sort of remember a number of these tracks (not counting the ones that are actually in the show, of course :P), so it's rather interesting to have these mini-reviews to give them a bit more context. Actually, what is the deal with a lot of these songs? You've got ...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

So while making a collection of various short bits of DB music like eyecatches and title cards, I noticed that the DB title card cue listed on the site is incorrect. d2:14(a) actually seems to be a variant on the eyecatch music with a long gong sound at the end, which I'm not sure is actually used i...

Re: Toei doesn't do the series justice at all.

I'm not 100% convinced the home release for Super will fix all the problems. I mean, Sailor Moon Crystal still had plenty of problems and sometimes the home release even made things worse, like switching Usagi and Minako's hairstyles.

Full disclosure--I am transgender and bisexual. I personally don't think Dragon Ball would stand to gain anything from any new additions to characters' romantic or sexual orientation. Dragon Ball's never been very good at it (which is okay with me) and I honestly feel that even if you took the exist...

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 has some rather infamous rights issues, but the only time the music was changed was when...

So, guys. I've been trying to wrap my head around the hype for this game, but what actually sets the combat apart from the flimsy Sparking and Raging Blast stuff? No matter how many gameplay videos I watch, it looks like the same thing. I'm genuinely curious.

Re: Super Gokuden: Kakusei-Hen Opening Theme Question

It is on Kanzenshuu's page, listed as "Awakening Edition," which is a translation of "Kakusei-hen" (though probably "Awakening Chapter" would be a bit more appropriate in the context of a video game title.) It's the first track from that album, which mostly consists of arranged versions of the SGD2 ...

I don't think you can really be "caught" in that case, as it's a traditional folk song that nobody quite knows the origin of. In other words, it isn't copyrighted. :P

Re: Kai Episode 99 (06 April 2014)

I liked the new score. The OP and ED songs, not so much. The ED instantly disappears from memory when it's over and the OP is a pretty generic anime intro. Tanimoto's voice is still obnoxious. I like the animation for both, though. I'm not sure if I like how much they "spoil", but they're nicely ani...

Re: Dragon Ball Anime Remake Chapter coverage 8.0 (160 Episo

Like Fizzer, I haven't read all of your work yet, but I have to say that your approach doesn't work too well for the early standalone stories. By stuffing each episode with as much content as you can, you're creating an unfocused experience. Take your episode 2, for example: the encounters with Kame...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming.

Not that it matters because this thing is never ever coming out, but I always thought that it was "ironic" because Goku would be voiced by the English equivalent of someone who played opposite Kappei Yamaguchi. Maybe that's where the Brad Swaile line of thinking comes from too--Light Yagami vs. L.

Question if any Americans here have Toriko on dvd. Is it censored there, or less censored from its Japanese broadcast?

Re: Could these be the people responsible for the Dutch subs
