Re: "Jaco the Galactic Patrolman" discussion (Tankōbon April

Is there any legal way to get Jaco besides tracking down the physical SJ issues? I find it absurd that I have to wait a year to read this story. I only caught the first chapter...

Re: Official Confirmations of Why the Dub Casts Changed?

Although FUNimation was incorporated in Fort Worth, the company has been using area voice talent for only a year. Prior to that, producer and voice director Barry Watson would fly to Canada to supervise loops at a Vancouver studio that handled some 300 animated shows a year. With executive offices ...

Re: Official Confirmations of Why the Dub Casts Changed?

You answered your own question: money. There was a HUGE production gap between the two versions and by then FUNi had stopped working with Saban (who bankrolled the Ocean dub and first alternate score). Toonami is the only reason the series got as popular as it did. The first two seasons aired before...

Re: Making a Dragon Ball Z Film Franchise Work

This would be a waste of time. The problem is that the amount of money required to make this enjoyable for the core DB fanbase would also require the studio to pander to the mainstream. I had a musician role in the upcoming James Brown movie "Get on Up" which I filmed in MS this past December before...

Re: What Premise Would Warrant Another Dragon Ball Series?

First of all, there are 100s of megaman games. There could definitely be another Dragon Ball series. Point 1: We keep buying the same video footage/episodes over and over again. Point 2: Battle of Gods and it's popularity are proof that there is room for new Dragon Ball. It opened ( according to wik...

The funny thing is that's exactly why I plan to purchase kai. Gohan and Freeza's voices are so much better in the Kai dub IMO.

Re: 5 best fights in Dragon Ball

5. Mr. Satan Vs Trunks This was just funny and long overdue. Not much of a fight. 4. Gohan vs. Recoome Gohan is my favorite character. The stakes had never been higher at this point and he is finally able to overcome his fears and go all out in a fight. He is ultimately defeated, but I think Gohan s...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

After these bluray sets have made a ridiculous amount of money we will get Dragon Box Z: Bluray Edition! I'm almost entirely convinced the level remaster will re-emerge once they have made their money. History will repeat itself. That being said, I'm personally OK with these new sets. I still have m...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-Ray (Updated 10

I'm well aware of that, and taking that into consideration (see my other post). I'm sure FUNi did the best they could. I just wish they would have left a little grain in. Then again, this seems like a mainstream type of release so film grain probably wasn't a priority.

Judging it by the standards of the YYH Blurays, I would agree. I think it's fine though.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-Ray (Updated 10

I have mixed feelings about this. It sucks that it's widescreen, but as long as they re-frame each shot to get most of the action i'm ok with it. Unless Toei does it, we'll probably never get a YuYu Hakusho quality Bluray release in 4:3. Also, they gave us the Dragon Boxes. I still have mine and the...

I agree. Except for Triangle Crap. That guy totally ruined Goku's return (Future Trunks saga).

Re: Does anyone else dislike how Toriyama used Future Trunks

What's wrong with that? He's fucking 9 - 10 with the world in his hands. Hell the kid doesn't even like fighting(yes he randomly turned into a pacifist) and he to have that much pressure on him. Trunks had that pressure his whole life so he's used to it. Gohan...not so much. Exactly. Trunks is also...

Re: Does anyone else dislike how Toriyama used Future Trunks

I think Toriyama used Trunks correctly. If you think about it, Trunks had only one purpose: to change the future. I was rather happy to see him come back after a little time had passed. Seeing him get a special and seeing him become a major character in the Cell Games and kill the androids of his ti...
