Re: Was the Level remastering REALLY too expensive, though? Almost certainly not.

I don’t think FUNimation sabotaged their own release. When a company invests money into a product and puts it out on the market, they want it to succeed. I think the failure of the Level sets was simply bad planning. I also don’t think FUNi refuses to release the Level remasters just to spite the fa...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The thing is, they could have put out DBZ in full screen without shitty DNR at any time since 2011, but they have refused to do so. You literally can't excuse this set, because it could have been everything we've been asking for, it could have been a proper release that the hardcore fans are asking...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I’ve stopped trying to nitpick the quality of the remasters and at this point all I want is full screen DBZ. It’s become clear this series will never get the love it deserves in terms of a release that properly remasters the footage. We’ve been bitching and moaning about this since 2006, and I’m ti...

Re: Do you like Kikuchi Kai?

For instance, if someone asks me which movie is better, really crappy movie versus really good movie, then I’m going to answer that the really good movie is better. Maybe the crappy movie was made by someone with my same religious and political beliefs, and maybe the really good movie is made by so...

Re: is dragon ball technically a spin off of dr slump?

crossovers are by definition aren't canonical though . This is not even remotely true and I have no idea where you even came up with that notion. That's not true. The MCU and Arrowverse crossovers are canonical, but many crossovers aren't. I would say a significant portion of cross overs in fiction...

Re: is dragon ball technically a spin off of dr slump?

Nah, the word ‘spin-off’ isn’t really appropriate here. You’ll never see anyone describe Dragon Ball Z as a spin-off of Dr. Slump.Dragon Ball and Dr Slump are their own things. Toriyama just thought it would be fun to connect the two.

Re: Dragon Ball Full Color Manga

Might be a contributing factor on top of everything else then. Depending on the complexity of the colours added to the background, additional work might be needed that would normally not be an issue for a purely lineart black-and-white panel. I doubt that'd be a significant factor in the... Semi-ca...

There are many successful series that promote LGBTQ+ characters. She-Ra and Miraculous Ladybug to name a few. It would be nice if DB would join the 21st century.
Dragon Ball is in the 21st century, with or without LBGT characters. Anyway, Whis and General Blue have something to say to you. 😏

Re: Is admitting to have watched and liked Super like admitting to have done something 'naughty'?

I find that people generally enjoy Super. They’re stoked that DBZ is back and they’re glad to be able to watch new episodes of a childhood favorite. Tons of people who don’t even watch anime watch subbed episodes of Dragon Ball Super and talk excitedly about new episodes and movies when they come ou...

Ugh with the canon crap. I'll come right out and say it - screw canon. This is exactly like when people talk about DB's canon. Instead of caring more about the emotion and the characters, they care about whether there are continuity errors or if it all fits together nicely like a puzzle. What are t...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

The fundamental problem in Hollywood, moreso in regards to blockbusters, is that its approach isn't long term oriented. They put films into production with a release date before they even have finished scripts. Theatrical release windows are shorter which doesn't allow for as much word of mouth for...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

The problem with Dragon Ball Evolution wasn’t so called white washing, its problem was just being a bad movie. lol I think there are better anime to make into live action. But hey, can’t say this won’t peak my interest if true :) I just hope it’s not Asian Dragon Ball Evolution 8)
