Re: Did Toei make the right move?!

It's a true statement though. Regardless of what one's personal feelings toward a particular filler is, none of it adds anything to the story. What is your definition of "adding anything to the story?" Filler can emphasize characterization and themes that the manga doesn't touch on, allowing for th...

That's... quite the bold statement.

Re: The International Version of the Buu-Kai Arc

FUNimation has hired the Japanese cast to act out the dub in English.

Re: The International Version of the Buu-Kai Arc

It's going to be very awkward when they announce Buu Kai for American release and the rest of the world is too busy watching Super.

Re: The International Version of the Buu-Kai Arc

Hey folks. I've been really out of the loop and didn't feel like tackling the behemoth of this topic: is it true that the international version of Kai is going to be ten episodes longer with more filler added in? Since the Japanese broadcast is on track to end at 59ish but reports have The Final Cha...

Yes, it's always aired on Shonen Sunday.

Re: Buu Saga Kai

AH, they spelled "Freeza" with an "I" again! Does this happen often? I wonder if the relationship between FUNimation and Toei is growing so strong that they're actively working to standardize the material. It's happened in a video game at least once. I think the given assumption is whoever is in ch...

Re: Buu Saga Kai

Yeah. I think people get caught up on what's filler and what isn't too much, considering that most everyone watched the show fine when it first aired not knowing the difference. If you want a 100% filler free experience, the manga's waiting for you. Because the whole point of Kai is to remove all fi...

Re: Yamamoto Score Question

Although I'm biased because the song in DBZ is favorite Kikuchi piece, I agree that overall I think it's worth highlighting the triumph in the scene.

Re: Yamamoto Score Question

Thanks!

It's really interesting to me that the Yamamoto and Z cuts emphasized the uplifting part of the speech and that song brings out the terror.

Re: Yamamoto Score Question

This is a little off-topic, but I don't have access to my BDs right now: can anyone tell me what Kikuchi song is used in Kai during the Super Saiyan Son Goku speech?

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Speaking of, my unpopular opinion is Wakamoto was only "good" in DBZ but amazing in Kai. Especially as Imperfect Cell, with those hilarious boogeyman sounds he made.

Re: Dragon Ball or Dragonball?

Yeah, I used to use Dragonball Z/GT/Kai, although most of the time I would shorten it to just DBZ/GT/K/ai.

I think though that the use of Dragon Ball outweighs the use of Dragonball in official material (as well as considering iffy romanizations from Japanese speakers).

Re: What if Dragon Ball was made in today's society?

Now if you want to talk about a manga that would NOT be drawn today under any circumstances, feel free to consider Devilman...which ran in a shonen magazine even though it had scenes with kids getting decapitated and eviscerated by demons, rampant nudity, oceans of blood, etc. At least I THINK it w...

Re: What if Dragon Ball was made in today's society?

I don't really see a whole lot changing, to be honest. Dragon Ball has a pretty timeless appeal. It'd probably be more similar in storytelling to One Piece, but that's about it.

Subject to American standards, though? Well... it'd probably be so different it might as well not be Dragon Ball. :P

So Z's color manga is being released in English both physically and digitally. And that's great. But I know Japan has DB in color; do you guys think Viz will ever spring for it?

Re: Watching Dragon Ball Z in Japanese

It's been released on Blu-Ray in Hong Kong with English subtitles.

Besides, just because people from here pirate doesn't mean it should be encouraged on the forum.
