Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

Was DBZA an internet success? Yes. But all it did was serve as an extra bit of optional content that fans could absorb and use the comedy outside of it. But does DBZ's fame owe anything to DBZA? Hell no. TFS would love to think so, as would the most diehard DBZA fans, but DBZ would have carried on ...

Re: DBZ Got Lucky...

Are you kidding me? Dragon Ball had to compete with some of the best series to ever run in the history of Shonen Jump. Dragon Ball ran alongside: Kinnikuman, Captain Tsubasa, Fist of the North Star, Saint Seiya, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Dragon Quest: Dai's Great Adventure, Slam Dunk, Yu Yu Hakusho,...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 7/1/19!)

Talking about 16's death in part 16 does feel appropriate. Also, jeez, I had almost forgotten how long this whole arc is until I noticed that number. I wonder how often inconsistent moments in the arc were just down to Toriyama having forgotten something he did in the nearly two years it took to get...

Re: Serious Dragon Ball Questions For Fans About The Voice of Goku

It would sadden me if either Masako Nozawa or Sean Schemmel stopped voicing Goku, but I'd keep watching. That said, I'd hope it'd be a replacement of necessity, not one of "Oh hey, we got this celebrity voice!" or what have you. No, the series would not end of Nozawa could no longer voice Goku, beca...

Re: How could a new movie be more successful than DBS: Broly?

The Broli movie itself probably could have sold more tickets in the US if it had a wider, longer running release. That's something worth considering once you get another good movie going.

Re: Funimation Dubbing: My Hero Academia vs Dragon Ball Franchise

"It's not a particularly accurate dub like DBZ's"? It's been a while since I've seen that dub, but I'm sure it was more accurate than DBZ's dub, even if it unnecessarily punched up the scripts, but not to the same extent as DBZ's. I didn't mean to imply that it was AS inaccurate, just that, like DB...

Re: Funimation Dubbing: My Hero Academia vs Dragon Ball Franchise

Another FUNimation dub that's often pointed to as "one of their best" and "a huge improvement over their DBZ dub'" is Yu Yu Hakusho. And that's certainly a dub that, while indeed LIGHTYEARS better than virtually anything they've ever done with DB in any capacity (which itself isn't exactly a high b...

I don't think that's what they're saying. The previous time he was summoned he could have been sent away, leaving only one wish.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

That´s my point. By the time Super started the DBM story was already going forward. To make it fit they would have to arbitrarily add it while the other Universes are already fighting. Plus with the exception of Beerus and Whis (who would be too OP to be allowed to fight) there is really no reason ...

Lol, suggesting that Super has poorly executed ideas while praising DB Multiverse is just...amazing. I like Multiverse, but it's got a ton of flaws, and is fairly messy at...

Worth a note, I checked to see if there was any censorship, and I got through to check the infamous Invisible Man fight...it's definitely not uncensored.

I would especially love a redub with the same care and effort that Kai got, with all of the original music, accurate scripting, better acting, etc. Would make me quite happy.

Yeah, I love Nozawa's work as Goku...but I can't really see how she can rationalize this view of Goku with what the franchise presents. Even ignoring Super's attempts to really show Goku's failings, this quote here confuses me: "He never goes out to fight someone with the intent of just beating them...

Re: Can they fix Minus in the new movie?

For me, by far the two most important things are that: 1. They keep Bardock's rebellion against Freeza and destroying planet Vegeta during it because it is a defining moment of the character and it is in the original manga. 2. They don't make Goku sent to Earth because he loves him, but they keep t...

Re: Which of FUNimation's Name Changes Bother You the Most?

I think Bulla's my pet peeve. Bulma's been in my mind too long to get mad at, but I knew her daughter's name was Bra long before I ever heard Bulla, so that's the one that bothers me.

Give me my puns, even if it needs a bit of translation.

It sorta feel so, the music had a Yamamoto-vibe, the fights similar to Z and there were some VAs from the DB cast, iirc. Same happened with Saint Seiya but neither of these two anime series were ever as grand as they wanted to be, as was and still is, Dragon Ball Z. YYH and SS have really solid sco...
