Re: Dragon Box Z Volume 1 - "Clips from foreign dubs"

Can confirm. It's a well documented error, pretty sure the site mentions it somewhere too. Apparently not in the review (that was inherited from the old Kanzentai, I think) nor in the "My Dragon Box isn't Perfect" feature. Maybe I'm misremembering. Either way, it's at least been brought up multiple...

Re: Why Does the Japanese Version of Dragon Ball Sound So Awkward?

I believe Steve Simmons chose that translation due to the fact that it sounds like what Cell actually said, which was "shimatta," a general Japanese oath. Basically a little in-joke. He only says "HOLY SHI-" because Final Flash cuts him off. Simmons must have thought it appropriate for someone who ...

Re: What is best episode to introduce Dragon Ball Z to someone?

There's lots of explanation in the first episode which builds a background to build on, and it introduces the Saiyans and what they do. They don't even mention the word "Saiyan", let alone say anything about what they do. The episode has Radits land on Earth, kill the farmer, and fight Piccolo and ...

Re: What is best episode to introduce Dragon Ball Z to someone?

But to introduce someone to DBZ, I would start them from episode 1, where it is revealed that Goku is an alien from outer space. I think its important to introduce the show with an episode that speaks more to the main character's background, and episode 1 does that. "Oh my god this random guy is an...

IC Carddass Dragonball

It's a card game that can be played both physically and digitally, with digital players being able to scan all their physical cards and use these together with their dig...

Re: Dragon Ball Heroes anime and card game

You could just change the Heroes name to something else such as Dragon Ball Super the tcg game or something, but you could also have "what if" characters that Heroes does as well. You could also just make a name up like the Xenoverse games. I just really want something similar to Heroes even if we ...

Re: Dragon Ball Heroes anime and card game

You know there's a Heroes manga, right? It's more or less what you seem to be looking for. As for a card game, they already started a new Dragonball TCG in Japan based on the franchise as a whole, so making one specifically for Heroes would be rather pointless. It's also probably in their best inter...

Yeah, they really should've done their job better there.
unfortunately this is probably just going to make lots and lots more people mistake what the actual parody is.

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

So it has come to my intention that it's first now due to episode 51 of DB Super, that many people have realized it was Trunks who wrote 'Hope' on the time-machine. This I find odd, but apparently in the Funimation dub, Trunks said Bulma wrote it. I always had the impression it was Trunks who did, ...

Re: Goku not going SSJ against Cooler now justified?

The implication seems to be that he hasn't mastered it to the point where he can freely activate it, which would be a fair assumption from the writers considering where the manga had been at (Goku vs Freeza*) during its development. *I'm aware that the Trunks chapter had been published around this ...

I have to say I'm extremely impressed with Tatsuta's ability to channel Yanami's voice. If you weren't already aware, I can absolutely buy you wouldn't be able to tell that Kaio and the narrator's voices changed at all.

Re: Was Krillin's taco shirt ever explained by TOEI?

That octopus thing is likely. The guy also had to wear the Kulilin hat on namek, the poor guy is just a victim of bad romanizations. I don't see how that's a bad Romanization. The 'lin' in his name comes from 'shaolin'. That's a fan theory, and considering Toriyama's "I didn't think the character w...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

Super's merchandise is selling when Kai's didn't. So, Super is a success rather you liked the show or not. Yes, but that has absolutely nothing to do with ratings, which is what that post and this thread was about. The claim in question was that "Super not falling in ratings means it's not a flop",...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

Is DB Super failing in ratings? No? Then it's not a flop and that's more or less a fact Not at all. Kai flopped hard despite having similar ratings as Super. Kids tuning in and watching your show doesn't mean anything as long as they don't buy merchandise (which, in the case of Kai, they didn't). M...

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

According to Herms , this is all what the horizontal text says. I'm not so sure if it's the same scan without pictures, but it's likely. It is. The digest of the movie has Goku yelling "Kaioken Times 100" when he attacks Slug as well, whereas the actual movie itself just has him say "Kaioken". It's...
