Re: Tenshinhan's lifespan

I like to think that the whole "lifespan" thing was only really relevant earlier in the series because I think that as he grew stronger and more resilient, the effect it took on him became negligible. That's how it may have thrown his Shin Kikohos left and right at Cell before it became fatal.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Just wondering did Funimation fix the issue with Tiens missing line on Season 3 for this 30th anniversary set? Here's a link to the video clip below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b0h_TePk_w This was talked about a long time ago in this thread and iirc, it wasn't fixed. They probably don't even ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've been watching through it aswell and I don't think the quality declines although I'm just at the end of the cell fight right now. There was however a flashback in the last disc I watched that had footage of gohans previous fights and it looked awful. Like I've been overlooking a lot of the prob...

Re: DBZ Screen Shot Posters

Making high quality posters from screenshots can be tough but you could try using footage from the Level Sets to recreate those camera pans. Here's examples of their video quality: https://i.imgur.com/12YzF09.png https://i.imgur.com/89UY0YD.png On the other hand, I'd suggest using manga panels for ...

Re: "Funi took terminology straight from Banda"i thing is true or not

I can certainly buy that Chris Sabat had a say in “Kaioken” being pronounced correctly. In fact, that’s probably what it was. You even had Vegeta pronouncing it correctly in the UUE dub. Then he "corrected" it back to "kei-o-ken" for the Japanese music track on the Orange Bricks (how was this handl...

As far as the origin of "Saiyan", wasn't there some scenes in the anime using that spelling? Like on a T-shirt or something?
Someone on one of the islands Cell blows up is wearing a shirt that says "The Super Saiyan."

Re: "Funi took terminology straight from Banda"i thing is true or not

Well, Saiyan is also just a legitimate adaptation of Saiyajin, since "jin" is just a term to describe someone from a place, so it's just a logical adaptation.

Re: Are there parts of Dragon Ball that remind you of your own life?

I guess I could also add that that birthday filler I mentioned was also an episode I happened to be watching in 2011 or so when the Dragon Box with it came out. I was watching it when my uncle came over. He died shortly after, so that's the last time I ever saw him... That episode reminds me of my u...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I don't think we're going to see DVD go in quite the same way that VHS and Laserdisc did in the early 2000's once it really took off, because even after the HD formats came around it's still kicking despite being over 20+ years old. I think what's helped DVD stay around for so long is how cheap it ...

Re: Are there parts of Dragon Ball that remind you of your own life?

The Gohan birthday filler episode always makes me feel good because it reminds me of my childhood and how my family used to be together and happy, regardless of all of the problems going on in life.

Basically for it's aesthetics. Sharp, defined hair & bio-electricity with increased power level is sure 🔥 I love it because of how fierce it looks. Everyone only thinks of Gohan with when it comes to the form, but even Goku and Vegeta look great with it (though Vegeta has the least noticeable chang...

I agree. I think for long-running threads like these it's okay to bump, though of course, I'm not a moderator.

Re: Gotenks is by far the most annoying canon character of the entire franchise

Lastly fusion is utterly useless. It just is. It never gets anything actually done in the series past five minutes of beat down action and twenty five minutes of pointless smack talk and posturing. You can count the victories achieved through fusion on one hand. Less if you only go for canon events...

Re: Thinking of giving up Dragon Ball

I eventually get tired of every one of my fandoms, but I always inevitably want to come back to it someday. Usually, it's just short breaks, but I'd never sell off the things I love because eventually I always return to them.

Re: [DONE] Dragon Ball Z Kai: Bruce Faulconer/American OST Edition

3 cheers for the best English dub of Dragon Ball actually being watchable! I'm so traumatized by Kikuchi Kai's rotating collection of the same 20 songs. Ok, while I can get not liking how repetitive some of the songs are in Kai, as I agree with that notion of some of them being repetitive, I cannot...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Torotarou just struggles to convey the movement of his action. It's so stiff and fails to convey motion. When Goku does that spinning kick to Moro it looks like he's spinning away from him and landing, which I think he is, but the next panel is Goku screaming, and then the panel after that he has al...

I really hope there aren't any more changes -- all of these different versions of the dub are annoying to keep track of already. The only other change I know of is the Kaioken to Kayoken when Vegeta mentions it during his fight with Goku in the Orange Bricks, but that's only for the Japanese music ...
