Re: Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butouden (3DS)

Demo's up in EU/AU!

Just started playing so need to collect my thoughts on it a bit. Most interesting thing right now is it's Japanese voice track only - unsure whether that just for the demo, just for outside of NA, or what, but certainly surprising to hear "Osu! Ora Gokuu!" on the Home Menu.

Re: Torishima's thoughts on when the series should've ended

Since I see the 'Z' portion of Dragon Ball being Gohan growing in order to surpass his father, I think as great and climactic as the Freeza saga was it shouldn't have ended there. That's the exact reason why I can't fathom Freeza being a possible endpoint. There's zero closure other than a big bad ...

I'm surprised I'm still on the fourth page considering my inactivity here - I'd be shocked if more than 200 of my posts had been made this decade.

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

I'm 90% sure that logo is just a placeholder..... or, at least that's what I'm telling myself. The Super does look pretty rad and that part does seem like it could be in a final logo, but obviously the copy and paste of Dragon Ball is just lazy, lazy, lazy. Crossing all my fingers and toes that the ...

Re: Trans/Gay/Bi-sexual villians

The very existence of Otokosuki tells me exactly how Dragon Ball would treat an LGBT character. It's a pretty cynical belief to say "no thanks" to representation because you know it's going to be horrible, and yes it is sadly a fact that a majority of Japanese depictions of LGBT people are far from ...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

So I just saw the movie today and want to give some of my thoughts of it. I enjoyed it but certainly didn't love it. It was a total rush to watch Dragon Ball on the big screen for the first time but there were a lot of flaws I couldn't help feeling the whole time throughout. The fighting scenes were...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Fukkatsu no F"

Love Bulma's new outfit. Evocative of her Buu arc style but fit for an adventurous setting..... while still respecting the fact that she's in her 40s. I'm pretty sure she won't be literally participating in the fight as much as I'd love her to pull a Lucy Steel, but seeing that she might be playing ...

I was surprised how much I like the God theme even from not hearing a proper recording so I hope it can grow on me even more. Even though the Ja'aku Ryu song is at the bottom of ...

Re: Chikao Ohtsuka (Tao Pai Pai) Passes Away at 85

He was certainly prolific and his death is being felt by a lot of fans from many fandoms right now - I heard of his death in relation to Kingdom Hearts where he's the voice of the main villain Xehanort. His work as Taopaipai was certainly very distinctive and something I can't imagine the character ...

Re: Are rough Romaji spellings "True To The Original"

For all the crap a lot of FUNi's names get, I've never seen the issue where they aren't at least recognizable as to whom they mean, even for subtitle fans - most of them, anyway. Chiaotzu seems pretty easy to figure out is Chaozu. Karin to Karin seems like a pretty easy jump to make. Fr-i-eza to Fr...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Fukkatsu no F"

I would kill for a canonical Kuriza appearance but I don't have a lot of hope of it happening. It's pretty clear that he's relegated to gag manga and supplementary games like Heroes by now.

....That said, I would love to be pleasantly surprised.

It's just seems to be an agency he's affiliated with, which just shares the name Goku (note it's spelled Go-Coo in English though).

Re: Did you come around to liking Mr. Satan?

I don't think I ever particularly disliked Satan, but I think by the time Buu rolled around and we saw a side of him distinct from his public persona that I came to seriously love him. It baffles me that there are people out there that still dislike him and think he's a pointless character, he reall...

Re: Got my girlfriend into Dragonball

My boyfriend isn't really a fan of the series, but he loves the art - he's a big fan of plenty of anime and manga but thinks Toriyama's art is some of the best in the business. So you're much more likely to catch him checking out the Chogashu than anything else. I've tried to get him into the series...

Can't read the descriptions very well, but the names are "Baby Kraken" for the jellyfish one and "Giant Jaga Imomushi" (a pun on jagaimo, potato and imomushi, caterpillar).

Re: Would you move the DB/DBZ split?

That really is the best place for a split. Although the "tone shift" toward a darker storytelling begins significantly earlier, at the beginning of the Piccolo Daimao arc, that part of the story still feels very much like a continuation from his previous adventures, and eventually the climax of his ...

That translation is pretty much spot-on - but just clarifying because it's kinda poorly worded, it's talking about technique as in move, specifically Yamcha's Soukidan.

Re: What haven't you seen?

I think it's only miscellaneous specials like the Year-End one that I haven't seen (I have watched both of the early safety ones though), as well as the non-Evolution live-action movies.

As for manga, I haven't read any of Victory Mission, nor the "original illustrated stories".
