Re: Toyble's AF

It's pretty silly in my opinion to go after small time creators like this, there's the argument that it could "cause confusion between official and fanmade products" but I'm not sure I completely buy that. In the above-mentioned case of Doraemon, the author printed over ten thousand of copies and t...

Re: Toyble's AF

It doesn't matter that AF was unofficial, doujinshi are fan manga and are frequently sold. It's just part of Japanese culture, companies don't tend to mind as, while they're a legal grey area, they don't (usually) make massive amounts of money and can serve to promote series They did mind in the ca...

Re: New Complete M400 Unreleased / released link

To be precise, Funi's DVD releases of DB movie 2 do have a 5.1ch track, which actually is NOT properly mixed in 5.1ch.

Re: Unanimated manga material?

In the manga, Chichi searches around the house for the medicine when Goku is brought into his home by Yamcha in reaction to his heart attack. This was cut out in the anime in which Yamcha just quickly brings him the medicine even though it could have been useful for filler like when Trunks keeps roo...

Re: Unanimated manga material?

The conversation between Zarbon and Vegeta about Freeza's ability of transformation was omitted in the anime for some reason, so Vegeta refers to it during the fight against Freeza out of nowhere. It could be easily added by recycling other conversation shots when they produced Kai, but they're not ...

Re: Can someone explain to me this score removal in the "Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle" dubs?

And yes I remember of M424EXT and the Insert songs being muted in my native dub, this happened with the complete PT-BR dub of OG DB and in Z (with the only exceptions being Tamashii vs Tamashii, and Tenkaichi Gohan and Piccolo San Daisuki in Movies 1 and 2) I never thought about it, again, thanks a...

So why aren’t we blaming Toriyama?
That is because it does look like Toyotaro started to take more control of the overall production from the current story arc and things got worse and helplessly fan comic-esque.

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

What he's been doing in the current arc is nothing but restaging his favorite moments from the original manga by using his own characters. It's like seeing his public masturbation as a fanboy published officially, which I'm not interested in by any means. It seems that he doesn't care about creating...

Re: Hardcore wuxia fans, what are the biggest similarities and differences between the genre and Dragon Ball?

As a DB fan from Japan, I'm against the idea of Wuxia directly influencing Toriyama. 99% of the users here seem to be from the Western world and have very limited knowledge about the cultures in East Asia, so they tend to connect whatever from China or Hong Kong they find similar with Dragon Ball so...

What were the lyrics to m424ext anyway? It's seldom (if ever) translated in subs.
They're really hard to catch even for native Japanese speakers like me, but at least I can hear 祝え今宵 (Iwae koyoi, celebrate tonight) in the beginning.

Re: What's the concensus on dubs replacing sound effects?

Personally I think it removes the exact tone and "spice" of the show, similar to when the music is switched out, particularly when generic stock sound effects are used. That's literally what Toei themselves did with Super and that's exactly why I hate it with passion. Edit: Oh I didn't notice this ...

Re: I feel like the slow pacing for DBZ in the anime and filler works to its advantage

The stupid, pointless, or cheesy filler aside, the slow pacing of the series at least brought one positive effect: They heavily relied on the music to keep the tension in slow-paced scenes, which made the Kikuchi score very memorable and iconic as a result.

Re: Why Kai 1.0's Kikuchi Score was so limited.

I believe that Toei actually had budget to digitalize the missing Kikuchi tracks, but not time for it, so they hadn't any other choice but get stuck to the stereo tracks. No, they had already run out of the budget at the time. I directly asked one of the staff members of Kai on Facebook and he conf...

Re: Can someone explain to me this score removal in the "Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle" dubs?

They removed these tracks because they contain singing in Japanese. A lot of dubs around the world avoided these particular tracks, too. You're from Brazil, right? Check out the PT-BR dub of DBZ episode 28. M424EXT is muted when Piccolo dies. It's the same as the insert songs: They don't want to let...

Re: For spanish speaking people, do male characters names ending with "a" seem weird?

I've never heard of any Spanish anime dubs whose character names are changed for the sake of gender suffixes. Such kind of name changes are relatively rare even when it comes to the languages with noun case inflection, but the Lithuanian version is one of the few exceptions: Its almost all character...

These might be like those Latin American DVD singles that looked like Ultimate Uncut, but the video was Orange Bricks. I've got two volumes of that release and no, these are not.
