Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

Desassina, Japanese is an actual language, it's not this weird English cipher for you to try to decode.

Please stop trying to "explain" things you don't understand in the slightest.

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

Mmmm only relevant thing I have on hand is Carlsen's German DBZ Vol. 1 animanga (2008 release) which uses "Radditz". Huh, that's interesting. I'm looking at German wikipedia, and it consistently uses "Radditz" as well, even in its article about the manga... yet Carlsen's Danish manga release was tr...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

I have no idea why they spell Radits' name with a z either. I thought it was because of the small tsu in ラディッツ radittsu . Don't double consonant words ending with an 'S' sound get adapted into Zs from time to time? Radish is ラディッシュ, Radits' name is ラディッツ. Toriyama just swapped the shu (シュ) for a ts...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

It's a convenient way to twist this thing, honestly. Obviously "Kakarot" is a pun on "carrot." As for "ブロリ," the "リ" can be "ri," "ry," "li," and "ly." So, yeah. Do the puns have to be that on-the-nose? Why are "Kakarot" and "Raditz" not "Cacarrot" and "Radish?" So, if those names could be modified...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

But if we're going down that route, we need to spell Goku's Saiyan name as "Cacarrot" for the same reason. As pointed out a couple times already - "carrot" is not カロット, it's キャロット. The "ka"s in Goku's Saiyan name are specifically NOT the first syllable in the word carrot. And "Geran." Lots of peopl...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

Right, so "Broly" is actually "Broli"? Kakarrotto I'm guessing is the most accurate for what we have a the moment, that being "Kakarot", haven't heard back from VegettoEX yet on that though. Broli's name is literally just the word broccoli without the "cco". Spelling it with an y makes absolutely n...

Oh my bad. I thought you were talking GT Final Bout but I double checked and it was made by Bandai. I've only seen the re-release cover with the Atari logo so I assumed it was a western game :oops: .
Dragon Ball Final Bout is neither western nor a GT game.

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

There's never been ANY GT-only video games outside of that one western-made one because the fanbase for GT stuff just isn't big enough to get dedicated products like that. There was also GT: Transformation, sequel to the Legacy of Goku series, but that was a pretty minor game for GBA. ""outside of ...

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

Fairly sure some interview mentioned that the reason GT started to pop up in video games was largely because they discovered that apparently westerners actually liked that stuff. But while it makes sense to go "hey, these characters we thought nobody cared about actually have a fanbase somewhere, le...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Aside from that, standards change over time. Just because we were ok with square pictures back when we had SD TVs and some people are still ok with that, doesn't mean most people are ok with watching a show that has huge black bars on both sides of the image, effectively not using a 4th (or more) o...

He hasn't developed his all consuming obsession with Goku quite yet.
In the very next manga scene he's in he literally admits he wants Goku revived so he can defeat him.

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

It just doesn't feel out of character to an anime-only viewer because they wouldn't really be aware of what he's supposed to be like at this point. It was for me, as it just didn't feel right for him at that point. It was something I'd expect to see from his pre-death self. Right. As I said earlier...

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

If people didn't care that Vegeta beat up Gohan and flew away only to be on the ground with everyone acting like nothing happened, it doesn't matter NEARLY as much as you claim. We see Goku caught in Namek's explosion AND the scene where he jumps in Ginyu's spaceship. That was a (pointless) filler ...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

I never said it was inaccurate, it's just that it was forced when there were other ways, especially to preserve a bit of the intended pronunciation instead of having something largely different than Kyabe. Right now, someone who doesn't have a translation and hears "Kyabe" in Japanese is gonna say ...

I thought Cabba was accurate? The chracter's name is キャベ, which is キャベツ (cabbage) with the final syllable chopped off, so yeah, Cabba is the logical spelling. I have no idea why he called that inaccurate. I have no clue where "Ultra Instinct" came from, did official translations get that from us fa...

Re: Episode #0483 (26 July 2020)

Great podcast and topics, but something has been bugging me. I've been reading comics for most of my life and I don't think I've ever heard them referred to as "floppies." Not sure if this is some kind of East Coast term I could be unfamiliar with? Whenever I hear the word "floppies", my mind goes ...
