Re: Your opinion about Dragon Ball AI Project (DBAI)

Seeing it in motion gave me a headache, AI has come so far in recent years but still has a ways to go until it is producing something worthwhile without large investment. Individual stills of certain shots will look admittedly 'fine' when AI upscaled, but when you're dealing with far away objects or...

Re: Was DBGT canon during its original airing?

i know your question pertains to the original airing, but it feels like even during the 90s/00s western syndication that GT was a 'canon' sequel at least to anybody who hadn't really looked in-depth. Maybe that was true up until the advent of easy to access info on the internet, that was definitely ...

Re: New Blu Ray sets? Let's compare!

No, I'm not settling for a smeared, over-sharpened, over-saturated mess of a release that added fake grain and left things uncropped in an attempt to mask their nonsense and appease "hardcore" fans. "Good enough" can fuck off. Do it right (as you've shown you can do!) or don't do it at all. It's be...

Re: Why has Toei kept the “new” movie covers?

Yikes, this makes me feel queezy, is that Yamamuro? Yup, they were new designs from Yamamuro :crazy: Surely the logo isn't him, though?... How could any professional-level designer do THIS? https://i.imgur.com/88NTT9M.png Like, maybe "DRAGONBALL MOVIES" was him, and then someone at Toei decided "he...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I can see they're both A and B region. I wonder if these will be distributed in Europe too or will MangaUK re-release them under their logo sometime later. It's definitely to encompass a MangaUK release now that Funi own them. I feel like I'm in a minority that think these are actually really ugly,...

Take from it what you will, considering production was well over 20 years ago, but he seems fairly certain.

The Legacy Of Goku 2 and its sequel, Buu's Fury.
I so need to find a copy of Buu's Fury, we never got it here in the UK, great games even LoG 1 had its charm.

I would also recommend Dragon Ball Z: The Legend, for Sega Saturn - it's also available on the PS1 but there are some changes.

What media haven't you consumed?

What parts of the franchise haven't you gotten around to yet and why? For me it would be: - OG Dragonball anime from Red Ribbon onwards - Switched to the manga as I couldn't stand the poor audio - Any of Dragonball Kai - I have it on Blu-Ray but just haven't had chance yet! - Dragonball manga beyond...

One thing I can't understand with all of this is that a portion of the black community have already been projecting their identity onto Piccolo for decades now and nobody has ever had an issue with that, what is wrong with LGBT+ doing the same? As a straight white male (cishet is the term I believe...

Old Gamecube tech demo ?

I have recently been looking through some old magazines and came across a couple from 2002, before the release of Budokai. The oldest magazine states that there is going to be a game like Powerstone but for Dragon Ball Z, which will be released on PS2 and Gamecube. It shows a photo of Kame House whi...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I see Piccolo as an asexual man. Same here, like Freeza. Both have been referred to as male and a 'son' to their parent so that is the only thing we can go off. I can't think of a time either have shown interest in anything romantically, the only thing that stands out to me is how excited Freeza ge...

Re: Vegeta is a sapiosexual right?

Does it count as a fetish? Intelligence a trait that LOTS of people look for in a mate. Right? I guess it's when it is the intelligence you are attracted to over what being that intelligence inhabits. For instance if Vegeta met an intelligent oracle fish he might find that attractive. There is not ...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

It would require a retcon to promote Piccolo as a LGBT+ character. He's a prime candidate and had this been a new series (i.e. not one that existed for over 30 years) then absolutely. The real problem is how poorly they would probably handle it. Goku: "So Piccolo does that mean you have a *patpat* ...

Re: Vegeta is a sapiosexual right?

Having had to Google what a sapiosexual is I would say isn't that more of a fetish than a sexuality? Either way I'd say there isn't enough evidence to say this is the case, but I will say he probably is not intentionally a sapiosexual.

Re: Is being attracted to a Dragon Ball character considered weird?

Threads like this really should be pruned prematurely. They have almost nothing to do with the franchise specifically on top of being off-putting. So don't bother with the thread?
