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

Do any non-English translations even use "Raditz"? Carlsen used Radits, and I'm pretty sure at least a decent number of other European publishers did as well. Mmmm only relevant thing I have on hand is Carlsen's German DBZ Vol. 1 animanga (2008 release) which uses "Radditz". Raditz is the official ...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

^ It's what I thought I saw with some footage played by a girl for a show or something.
It could have a tactical importance to have this extra way to discard an opponent for a little while.

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

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 never said it was inaccurate, it's just that it was forced when there were other ways, espec...

Re: Your patch/fixes for a new edition of the original manga

Trunks wanting to keep the future peaceful forever is perfectly in-character for him as he couldn't possibly have known that Babidi or Goku Black would attack later. Oh, it's not about what Trunks wants. It's just the narration that's plain wrong in the last panel due to DBS. "After many years of s...

Your patch/fixes for a new edition of the original manga

Imagine a new edition of the original manga run is coming for Japan and the whole world after that. You are in charge of bringing any correction that would be needed (graphically or story-related), but it is absolutely not a full remake, just a bit of corrections here and there to make it closer to ...

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

Kanzenshuu originated the spelling "Beerus". We did so that same week on April 1, 2013 at 9:17 a.m. with Julian having the final say and deciding on it, after waffling for a bit on what we wanted to use "for real". We used the spelling "Beerus" because it preserved the original Japanese pronunciati...

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

Also, with regards to Kakarotto or Kakarrotto, did you know that "kyarotto" means carrot, but can also be read as calotte, which is why the French and Portuguese translated his name as Cachalote? (they repeated the first syllable like Kakarotto). This is why I believe that if you want to force the ...

Re: Possible details on Selecta Vision's Dragon Ball (1986-1989) bluray release

Much as I'd like to be able to imply the opposite, based on all the releases thus far, I'm inclined to say that France does not go the extra mile to fix anything and pretty much uses the products they are given as is. What about the movie releases? What about the remaster ab has done for "moero! To...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

My guess is that this leaping technique that replaces superdash is going to be a direct equivalent with a different animation to justify that it tracks the opponent (for example spinning like a tornado or something). Or the only difference will be that it doesn't track the opponent but goes exactly ...

Re: What is your estimation of Toriyama as a writer?

I think Toriyama instinctively has this sort of magic that - even when he doesn't overthink the way his plot is going - makes him write it in a compelling way with clever tools. For example, I'm amazed at how he handled Goku's fight against Freeza, whether it was intentional or not. He was basically...

Re: Where can Saiyan transformations go from here?

I can't imagine what the next form could be like, but I know it's going to be a while before we get it anyway. Right now, Ultra Instinct still has to be mastered and used quite a lot before the next step shows up. The only thing I regret is that the superb Super Saiyan Blue hasn't taken the place of...

That's why I say if any company would be in a good position to do this and have the best chance of getting approval it'd be them assuming they actually are interested (I hope so), the only question then becomes would they take to take the time to splice parts where needed (to fix dropouts for examp...

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

Well, for "Kefla", it seems likely that they simply wanted to ensure that it was pronounced correctly as an adaptation of the Japanese "Kefura", even if they had to ignore the logic in spelling just like for "Vegetto" coming from nowhere when it's "Kakarot", but matching the idea of adapting "Bejito...

Well, when it comes to the French translator for the manga (and pretty much all existing DB books), who was aready a Dragon Ball fan before she was put in charge of translating it and other franchises like Dragon Quest, she did choose "Kakarotto" consistantly - and while I have no proof of the follo...

Re: Poll about your preferences (manga, anime, games, music...)

^ As far as I'm concerned, the bigger the better. With Toriyama's drawings, I found the intensity to be quite striking just by going from Tankobon (regular small size) to Kanzenban / Perfect edition (in-between) size. So I can only imagine how the intensity would be even bigger with a comic book siz...

Re: If characters from Dragon Ball appeared as Guest Characters in Mortal Kombat or Injustice

For Injustice, it is limited in violence so it could be the heroes. For Mortal Kombat, it would definately be the bad guys. But the Japanese rightholders wouldn't allow it anyway, they wouldn't want the characters to be associated with explicit, gruesome violent scenes. Even the bones breaking durin...
