Comet Library = Phil Collins?

First off, I apologize in advance if anyone has pointed this out before. I found an interesting similarity between "Comet Library" from the Complete Song Collections and another song: Phil Collins' track "Father to Son." Comet Library Father to Son It's not an exact copy or anything, but despite the...

Re: Movies with the best looking animation?

Path to Power had the best animation I'd ever seen in a Dragon Ball film before Battle of Gods came out. I'm really excited for Dragon Ball Super in particular because I have always felt that the series could benefit a lot from more modern animation techniques. Not knocking cel animation, of course,...

Re: Why did Vegeta think immortality would let him beat Free

I imagine not being able to die is a pretty solid advantage in (eventually) defeating an opponent. I wouldn't expect a foe like Freeza to eventually succumb to fatigue or anything like that, but at the very least Vegeta wouldn't be able to die until he could (eventually) defeat him. That being said,...

Re: DragonBall Z - Movie Overview Special

I've done just that. I'll admit, I wasn't prepared for that kind of response. I'm still a little perplexed you wouldn't just provide a download link to everybody in one fell swoop (with appropriate credits to yourself for the rip, of course), but I suppose that's better than nothing.

I don't understand what you'd be losing by uploading a piece of footage that was never commercially sold or why the actions of random users on YouTube concern you so deeply, but whatever. Your attitude infuriates me. I guess we're all supposed to be thankful for you sharing it with the Kanzentai sta...

Re: If Toei never got rid of their master tapes

I think the best you'd be getting is a higher quality mono track, honestly. They certainly would have had the ability to mix it higher--after all, you can always re-insert the music's original recordings and the like--but they never had a reason to stereo-pan anything since television broadcasts at ...

Re: Dragon Ball SD 2

From the other thread (seriously, why are we not just talking about it in there?): I like how the story was changed to be a lot more straightforward. It's sort of weird at this point that Goku would be angered to the point of transformation over Vegeta's death, but it works just as well and skips a ...

Re: Saiyan Space Pods

That resemblance is way too strong to be a coincidence. I'm sure Toriyama just forgot he used this as a basis like he forgets... well, everything.

That's really cool, though! It's always surreal to see things out in the real world that so closely resemble the things we see in fiction.

Re: Toei Officially Acknowledges Yamamoto's Kai Rip-Offs

Wow, I just got ridiculously giddy at this news. Kikuchi's score was one of the best parts of Dragon Ball, in my opinion; while Yamamoto's music was okay, it didn't feel the same. I can't wait to hear it in action again!

Re: Toriyama's Kanzenban art style

I hate it. To me it strips away the inherent simplicity and appeal in his art for me... it makes everything feel "wrong" and needlessly complex in contrast with his simple yet effective style of only about 10 years prior. He also seems unable to capture the same amount of dynamicism in his poses as ...

Re: How many Dub fans were converted to the Sub due to Daize

I know I was! The line delivery, dialogue, plot accuracy and pretty much every element of the original was better than any dub I've seen of the show; it only makes sense that I should want to experience the series as it was originally intended to be shown. I also grew to love the "girly" sounding Go...

Re: Slight Forum Sub-Section Re-Naming

I'm in favor of it, though I don't think most people will know exactly what "Meta" means in the context of general franchise discussion. Are there any better words that can be chosen, or is that really the most appropriate?

Re: "Dragon Ball SD" in Saikyō Jump (UPDATE: Confirmed+Released)

I'm really happy with what I read not just because it's new Dragon Ball material, but because this harks back to what I consider one of the most enjoyable parts of the original Dragon Ball storyline. Goku and Kuririn's training with Muten Roshi is one of those really fun, heartwarming come-of-age st...

Re: The Harmony Gold Dub

What genuinely surprised me about the Harmony Gold dub of Dragon Ball is that despite changing names all over the place for pretty much no reason, they not only kept the original background score, but they dubbed over the opening too! Given how liberal a lot of dubbing companies are with changing th...

Re: Most humiliating moments in DB

The most humiliating moment had to be when Goku was trolling Murasaki throughout the entirety of his fight with him. As if Murasaki didn't make enough of an ass of himself on his own by being totally incompetent, Goku actually shoved the nyoi-bo up his ass. Well, okay, he technically landed on it, b...
