You're the only one I see "Crying" here, spare me the tiresome flame bait and trolling already.

Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

No one would have to bend over backwards to appease the other side if dub companies would do their jobs correctly the first time. Just saying. Edit: otherwise, I somewhat agree. As far as I’m concerned, the damage has been done and the DB fandom in the west will always be fractured beyond repair. So...

Re: Read this Gohan arc take on reddit. Whats your take on this?

1) Of course people are inconsistent. Otherwise hypocrisy and double standards wouldn’t be things.

2) You both are comparing Goku brutally killing the RRA as a little kid vs his actions as an adult. I mean, Super aside, Goku HAS changed as a character albeit in small ways.

Re: Funi's Kai dub and accuracy

I’m willing to wager that the change back to dub attack names and “punched up” dialogue over time was due to enough Funimation Z dub fans complaining. Possibly alongside fans of Kai on Nicktoons who were confused by all the changes. Unfortunately, the Z dub fans will likely always have the ear of Fu...

Here’s a fun thing DB and AOT don’t have in common. Toriyama (to my knowledge) isn’t a nationalist who thinks the Axis powers should have won WWII.

What else changed other than Beerus not being a lizard? 1- The Movie was set during Krillin and 18's wedding. 2- Beerus was an evil lizard who infected planets with evil. 3- The Saiyans were originally good, but Beerus turned them evil. 4- Whis wasn't in the movie. 5- Vegeta's "my Bulma" scene wasn...

Re: DBGT sequel, or alternative setting... Would it work?

If Dragon Ball was owned by a western company, I could see them giving Toriyama the boot (See: Star Trek with Roddenberry). The thing is, Toei has a little thing called respect for the creators. Right or wrong.

Re: Would you pay Funimation via Kickstarter for a redub of the full Dragon Ball media

If you children are done. . . Really, I see no value in yet another dub. I’d certainly not watch it as I rarely watch ANY anime dubbed, much less a series with such a particularly Asian flavor. It just feels wrong. At least for my ears. The English fandom sadly can never seem to escape those shitty ...

To which I would argue that comment is obnoxious.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

It’s a sad truth that Toei’s improvements are the exception and not the rule. At least as far as it goes with the story, they did help to improve some dramatic moments via the animation.

Re: A couple or one sided romance?

The difference with Kale is Caulifla had to reassure Kale that there was no way she’d fall for someone like Cabba. That at least IMPLIES romantic jealousy. Also, no one said you can’t read animated characters as “queer” on this forum. Stop manufacturing drama where none exists here please and thank ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I think an anime adaptation of this arc could elevate it and maybe change people's minds. Toyotaro is hated so much that even if he does something good some people will refuse to see it, so maybe the anime can help give Moro a chance :lol: Nah, seen enough of his arc to know it's garbage. He is a g...

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

One thing about the U6 Saiyans that I feel was a major misstep was stating that had no clue what Super Saiyan was. This created a major issue come TOP where they had to have Saiyans play catch up with little build up just because “special and gifted”. What I would have done was state that it’s prett...
