Re: Questions for Gerard Jones? Upcoming Viz Manga Adapter Interview

"One of Viz’s translators on the first half of Dragon Ball has regularly visited my school to speak with students in our manga and anime class. Maybe she is someone who could better answer your questions." Yes, I'd like to speak with them. What is their name? Do you already have a way to reach them...

Re: Questions for Gerard Jones? Upcoming Viz Manga Adapter Interview

Every single aspect of what you want to know about Dragon Ball and Viz history can be better and more authoritatively answered by other people. Who would know better than Gerard Jones about the translation and localization process? Are you saying someone above him made all of those decisions? One o...

Re: Did the franchise ever POSITIVELY affect you?

Watching the series motivated me to study Japanese in high school and I wouldn’t be where I am today had I not become interested in the language. I guess I have Daizenshuu EX to thank for that as well because had I not stumbled upon the site and podcast in 2008, I probably would have kept watching t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

How come that no big youtubers came out and make a video stating these issues besides AJ, obviously someone is sponsored or something.

Re: The Broli movie will use dub names in its subtitles, at Toei's request. Could this become the new "standard"?

So if the subtitles started calling Goku, uh, let's say "Bob" you wouldn't mind? I mean, you know what his name is. Right? Don't really think that would be the same as using an official dub name, but if they called Goku Bob I'd probably be laughing so hard to even read the subtitles. Bulla and Bra ...

In all seriousness, this isn't really an issue for me, and I don't know why it bothers so many people. We know what their names are; it's everything else we're relying on the subs to translate for us. I will still enjoy it nonetheless. So if the subtitles started calling Goku, uh, let's say "Bob" y...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It’s crazy how just a few weeks ago people were worried that we wouldn’t get to 3,000 preorders and all hope would be lost for a proper home release of the series. Now we’re worried this’ll actually sell and we still won’t get a proper release. :lol:

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I feel in my gut that we’ll be getting information on April 3rd (Wednesday). 4/3 for 4:3, you know? Plus the 4-star and 3-star Dragon Balls. I have no insider information obviously and I’ve never claimed to have any, just call it a major, major hunch. They’ve probably hit their 3,000 signup goal th...

Can someone explain what the lower portion of that screenshot is about?
In the orange? It just says there’s one more special move. Guess we have to wait until next month’s issue to see what it is (probably SSJ4).

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Those sets cost $20-$30 at one point..... If you missed out, it's because you thought about it too much. The Dragon Boxes were much closer to like $45 or more every time I always saw them when they were first released. And again, there's also the fact that they were released really not that long af...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I wanted to have kid Goku in this game, so I’m pretty excited by the news. If it is the GT version, I hope Super Saipan 4 will appear somehow. And I really like the OG design, so hopefully they will do like Videl and have an alternate costume for him. I understand that people are mad about the numbe...

Sorry if this has been brought up already, but does anyone know what’s so special about the Amazon JP version of the limited edition set? Is it just a handkerchief?

Re: Vic Mignogna

If there’s anything that can justify bringing MJ into this conversation (at least for me), it’s that I can understand where the I Stand with Vic crowd is coming from. Whenever I heard Vic in the past there was something about him that made me uncomfortable, so maybe I’m a little biased in believing ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The responses on Twitter to this announcement make me cringe so hard. It says “more details to come” and people respond with “new Super episodes?” or “Goku is coming to Smash?!” Then there’s the people who want to boycott FUNi over the Vic situation by not buying this. I need to stay off Twitter. :l...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

A little frustrated that after this series gets consistently screwed over release after release, fans still have to jump through hoops like this to make a good release happen. That said, I signed. And I'll likely encourage anyone else I can to do so as well. So, in the scenario Funimation doesn't g...

I am so excited for this set! I was still a kid when the Dragon Boxes came out so I couldn’t get my parents to buy me all 7.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Perhaps, or maybe in April even around the 30th anniversary itself since that's when DBZ premiered on TV back in 1989. Though i guess we will see in the coming weeks when the announcement eventually comes. I agree. I think it may even be possible that Lisa Yamatoya simply got the anniversary dates ...
