Re: Episode #0422 (19 February 2017)

The digital manga topic was incredibly fascinating. I was already a fan of comixology, but I didn't expect them to have such an advantage over the publisher's own content. Unless I missed it, censorship wasn't mentioned. Am I to assume that the digital prints of Dragon Ball are "uncensored" (barrin...

Re: Minus is the beginning of the end for the franchise (writing-wise, of course)

I'm mostly amused that of the five points the original poster made... Four of them have been pretty much true for many years. I mean... Goku's priority was always fighting over nearly anything else, to the point that him abandoning his family was pretty commonly stated by fans for years. Fanservice ...

Re: What if 20th Century Fox makes a animated DB Movie?

The idea of doing CGI Hollywood anime adaptions seems pretty dead after the financial disaster of the Astro Boy and Speed Racer films in the late 2000s. Oddly neither of these were Hollywood CGI films... Astro Boy was a CGI film made in Hong Kong and the studio was basically falling apart as it was...

Re: Glad Viz Media isn't responsible for Dragon Ball...

I do see complaints of banding regarding the Crystal Blu-rays, but only minimal comments about ghosting (it doesn't mean there isn't mind you, just that I see plenty of comments about banding, and I can only find ONE person talking about ghosting, with others looking for ghosting specifically and se...

Re: Please lets us change our usernames

I don't see the need. If someone is that unattached to their name to change it often enough to need that, then I don't see that they are attached to the new one anymore than the old one. If someone wants to make a one off request specifically to the staff to make a change based on actual 'changes' t...

Re: Is Bulma believeable as a scientific genius?

We're introduced to Bulma as a teen who wants nothing more than "the perfect boyfriend" and will go about it by any means necessary, such as shooting a kid with a handgun in the head, showing her panties to anyone if it will get her what she wants, being a flirt in general, etc. She was also arroga...

Re: What TV do you watch your DBZ on?

I'm no expert on the subject, I just assumed the picture would have to be stretched and might become pixelated. Judging by your response I guess I'm wrong about that. Oh right! Nope, most if not all modern TVs will retain the original aspect ratio of the source material. Usually by default, but if ...

Re: Anyone know where I can download the Dragonball manga?

I would recommend not buying digital manga from Viz directly. I'll pull up old comparisons I did if necessary, but various manga on Viz's own storefront are relatively lower in quality than from other storefronts. I could guess at the reason for this, but few of the answers I can guess at make sense...

Re: Toriyama non-DB works

Time and effort has to be spent to moderate it, etc. with no real reason to have it beyond a handful of people 'really' wanting it. If only a handful of people will post there, will there really need to be spent so much time & effort? I mean, we had a section that people just said "Hi I'm new here!...

And then the forum will just die after a few days, just like it happened a few years ago when someone made an attempt. Isn't that perhaps saying in and of itself that it isn't necessary to have a dedicated section? I just believe that having a forum section about non-DB works from Toriyama with thi...

I just don't get it, why can't we have a sub-forum about Toriyama's other non-DB related works? I get it why you don't want a general off-topic forum, but where is the harm talking about Dr. Slump or Cashman? Especially when there is no other place in the Internet to talk about these?

You think you're out and they pull you back in... For a long time (to this day, even) anime in non-Japanese territories has been treated either as the butt of the joke (hentai, anyone?) You get everything is the butt of a joke right? This isn't really specific to anime. Sure it isn't heavily respect...

Page 1 alone loads 600 megs, which frankly is sort of ludicrous and insanely stupid to setup information on a forum that way. I'd say it's unreasonable to have made a thread like that to be honest. I'd say kill the image embeds and make them plain links. Or make your own site with readable and reaso...
