Re: All-purpose Dragon Ball sale/trade thread.

Hello all! I'm looking for a Dragon Box Vol 7 in good shape. Mine, tragically, appears to have gotten lost last winter when I was moving back home from college. Please PM me if any of you are looking to get rid of one.

Re: Dabura >=< Perfect Cell(Not Super Perfect)?

Cell was only Super Perfect for a VERY brief period of time, and only after Goku had died. To me, whenever they think of "Cell", for the most part they're probably thinking of Perfect Cell, as he was during the period leading up to the Cell Games and during Goku's and the first part of Gohan's fight...

Re: Strength of Goten and Trunks

I don't understand how they could be so naturally strong when Mirai Trunks struggled to match his mentor Gohan who was weaker than the Androids. Because in the main timeline, Vegeta had, presumably, achieved Super Saiyan while training for the Androids BEFORE Trunks was conceived. In the future, th...

Re: Dragon Box , Personal Verdict

The only thing that bothered me about the DBoxes was that Raditz wasn't on one of the discs from the first volume. Every other adversary got one, but not Raditz. Bummer, man.

I certainly hope so. I've been collecting the New 52 DC trades and I'd love to be able to have glorious, fully colored DBZ right next to them!

Re: DBZ a Favorite Cartoon?

As the title says, is DBZ one of your favorite cartoons, if not your favorite? For myself, it was one of mine at one time. Now, I don't really know what my favorites are, and admit I haven't really watched DBZ in a long time. What would you guys say? I get the feeling some are going to argue whethe...

Re: Reason why Gohan didn't use SSj2 against Dabra/Boo?

I don't really think Dabura was strong enough to warrant it. I'd place him at the same level of strength as Perfect Cell had displayed up through the fight with Goku at the Cell Games. Not Super Perfect.

Re: Dragon Box FUNimation Survey

It'd be neat to get DragonBox masters on Blu-Ray. I actually asked about what this would mean once upon a time, and really, it wouldn't be any different than watching the DVDs as they're already upscaled by Blu-Ray players anyway. The DBox was mastered in 480p, so there just isn't any extra visual ...

Re: Dragon Box FUNimation Survey

I just hope that whenever they release DBox: The Movies, we get the specials in 4:3 and the movies in 16:9. Also, the original PTETS, which was included with the Japanese Z DBox, so I'm sure Funi at least acquired the rights to it with the rest of the footage.

I always watch Bardock before I start DB whenever I re-start the series. I'm always in the process of going through it, at any given time.

Re: Is the Boo story arc coming too late?

Not for me. I held off on watching or purchasing the series until the announcement of the Boo saga, and I've just recently purchased and started watching Season 1 on Blu-Ray and I am absolutely loving it!

Re: Death Battle! Goku VS Superman Disscussion Thread

I had always been of the opinion that Goku would win in a fight until I read Superman #13 of the current, New 52 series, which is the main continuity. He did indeed bench press the weight of the Earth for five days, without yellow sun exposure during that time, and only stopped because he had things...

The Dragon Boxes have been my first large-scale viewing of the series in Japanese.

I'm currently in the middle of th...
