Re: Just learned about the soushuusen manga release; can y’all vouch for it?

I owned both these and the kanzenban, and while the bigger size is nice, the paper quality isn't that great and they get scuffed up pretty easily. I definitely preferred the smaller kanzenban for the paper quality and the fact that they are easier to carry around. I see the soshuhen often at Book Of...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

"Do Japanese people even care if their single-digit aged children watch the main character's mentor sexually assault woman or see said creep's pornographic magazines in plain view?" Japanese people aren't fucking idiots. Eh... sometimes I wonder. I work at a Japanese school and I've seen a few kids...

Re: Anyone got into Dragon Ball BEFORE Saiyans start to become a thing?

My Japanese teacher was a fan of the manga but he left Japan in the late '80s and never seemed to of caught up, so I think he is still unaware of the Saiyans. I did a presentation on Dragon Ball in college for my manga and anime class. My Japanese teacher said the same thing. He wasn't familiar wit...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I recently purchased for the PS4, and I'm trying to download the manga colors DLC. How do you get them? Do you have to use coins in the shop? And is it only available on May 9?

Dragon Ball in Animal Crossing

Not sure if this is really about Dragon Ball, but I was curious if any fans here play Animal Crossing and incorporate DB into their villages. My character is based on Arale and she lives on Isle Unko (Poop Island), and I found a QR code for her outfit online. I'm sure I can get everyone to wear Saiy...

Re: How do you feel about Dragon Ball references in mainstream media?

I mean they exist? Not sure why anyone would have an umbrella feeling about them. Like, I thought the Dragon Ball Z reference in Buffy was lame as shit because it’s obvious Whedon or whoever wrote the dialog for that episode had no clue about Dragon Ball Z and just knew the names Vegeta, Goku, and ...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

The people of DBZA don't have real jobs. They use this to make income so they can avoid real jobs. This is such a shitty thing to say. There are people on YouTube who literally film themselves watching other people's work and for some reason they have thousands of subscribers. DBZA was a show that ...

SARD UNDERGROUND "DAN DAN" & "Don`t you see!" Covers

SARD UNDERGROUND, a new ZARD cover band, just released their first album ZARD tribute on 2019 September 18. It includes two GT covers - "DAN DAN Kokoro Hikareteku" and "Don`t you see!". I am not a huge fan of theirs, but I attended their recent concert in Osaka and it was pretty cool. I was probably...

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: 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:
