Re: Episode #0488 (18 April 2021)

I think if there's one thing that gets exaggerated in regards to Dragon Ball in Portugal are the joke factor in the dub. Jokes which were sparse, even though one might get a different idea by finding them all neatly compiled online. The jokes were never part of Dragon Ball's huge success or appeal....

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

Any chance you'll do a version with the upscaled Dragon Ball release while there's no Blu Ray yet? From what I've seen, it's not a very good upscale, so you would probably lose more than you'd gain. Ajay might be able to tell you more about why exactly it isn't very good. I'm also not saying this j...

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

Not rude at all; I know a lot of people are more interested in Z than Kai. I briefly started work on it a while back, but haven't touched it since. Initially that was due to exhaustion, but now the biggest reason I haven't started working on it again is because I want to wait for full properly colo...

I only found out about this when searching through a prominent website for a release of the series that included the original broadcast audio, and I gotta say, this recut is everything I never even knew I needed. Most other fan edits are very amateurish, but yours is just beyond professional level. ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

Here's a question I've had for quite awhile does anyone know how much involvement Toriyama actually has with this game or to what extent ? I know the Dragon Ball Room is heavily involved with this game and Akio Iyoku is Toriyama's right hand man but I wonder if they'll be more original stuff aside ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

In my opinion, one of the biggest hurdles to overcome with early DB would be the lack of combat, since the first several arcs are comedy adventure stuff rather than action They all have action though. DB Origins already showed how to handle the first arcs. Then at the end you could finish it with Y...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

Pre Z definitely should have been included but DBS can stay away. Why? Super has a lot of great stuff they can adapt into the game if they wanted to, on top of being the stuff that isn't actually overused in videos games. I mean, what? They've used it in Xenoverse, FighterZ, & Heroes. Not a lot of ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

Still disappointed how this game is focuses on the Saiyan Arc and beyond, when you have Super and Pre- Saiyan content needing attention. I'm one of the people that's most excited for this game and even I'm disappointed that this isn't the case. I know that Z is the name that sells, but they really ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Manga UK Home Release Thread

Just to confirm: there's no green tint (or any other major issue) in these releases, right?

And by the way, do we still get all of the correct terms we used to have on the subtitles before Steve was forced to use the Funi spellings in the Broly movie (e.g. "Freeza" instead of "Frieza")?

Still, the guys who did the Viz translation are/were pros, so assuming you know better than those guys is... Well... At the very least, while it's definitely perfectly valid to question the decision, I wouldn't call it bad/wrong without being pretty damn sure . And given translation is what these g...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

Hercule is worth noting as censorship, but Djinn-Boo is a correct localisation of Majin Boo's name. Some people pass around nonsense about Majin meaning "Demon man" and Djinn meaning "Genie" and thus the two are vastly different and Viz were dumb, but in actual fact, the way the terms are used in J...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

The art just looks so good at that size, it's like an art book with a story! Wholeheartedly agree, hence me being so distraught at its premature cancellation. I mean, the Japanese edition is fine and all... but at tankoubon size, it's just not the same. Viz effectively just ruined my standards for ...

I like the Full Colours so much I'm happy to have them even incomplete, they look THAT good! They're also, as far as I'm aware, the ONLY way to buy the manga in the original Shonen Jump size outside of the Digest Editions, which you'd think would be a bigger deal around here! When I was further bac...

So it seems like this is effectively cancelled, that's a shame but glad I didn't start buying it. What's the best way to own the manga in English with the least (preferably none at all) censoring and no stupid translations (like 'Hercule') to roll my eyes at? The Full Color Edition would have been ...

Yes, includes Dragon Ball, too.


If I'm not mistaken, the Spanish edition is the same size as the Japanese one, right (i.e. tankoubon-sized)? Only the Viz edition got bumped up to Shonen Jump-size, if I have it right.

Haven't read any updates from Viz. Well, if you know Spanish then you can order it from Amazon.es, as they've completed their release, iirc. Either that or wait until 2040 and we might get it all in English. I've had time to learn Japanese, buy the original version and nearly finish reading it in t...

Re: General Website Goofs/Errors

In the main Manga Guide page , it says the Full Color release has 20 volumes. Since the Boyhood and Piccolo Daimao arcs have since been published, however, it should be 32 volumes instead. Also, in the Full Color Comics manga guide page , in the Saiyan arc section, it reads: The first volume contain...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

If they didn't announce it today, then it's pretty much officially dead at this point. They've had more than enough time to deliberate. If they didn't announce it this year, then they're not going to do it. It's not dead yet, I don't think. I think Shueisha are probably just dragging their feet on ...
