Re: Is it fair to say that Dragon Ball is no longer marketed to kids in North America?

It's easier to keep anime uncut in the US than have it be badly edited for NA networks. I still consider DB and most Shonen Jump series to show for kids. Something for kids can still have swearing and even blood in them as long if they don't go too far with them. People who are in power behind Broa...

Do we know they wanted it to go longer anyway? 64 episodes is longer than most anime
Knowing Toei, they would have keep on milking it to the ground. GT had a way shorter run than DB and DBZ did. They probably would have kept it longer at the time if GT was more sucessful.

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

22nd Tenkachi Budokai Yamhan vs. Young Piccolo Daimao

Would a fusion dance between 22 TB Yamucha and Tenshinhan would be enough to win?

Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

I may have seen Dragon Ball figures and pictures in the mid-90s at local collector shops without knowing what it was, but I don't 100% remember. The first time that I know about Dragon Ball that I remember was back in 1997 for my 6th birthday. My dad got a VHS tape of the first couple episodes of Dr...

Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

Funny to think The Last Airbender is worse than DBE, but it ends up making more money at the box office even though Dragon Ball is a bigger brand name. I guess M Night's name is a bigger box office draw than anyone in DBE.

Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

I never bother with The Last Airbender because I never cared for the Avatar: TLAB franchise. From what I've seen, DBE is a better movie because DBE was going to be awful, to begin with, and has a cheesy B movie vibe to it. With The Last Airbender, it had better special effects and it was made by a ...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Older Americans are terrified of the concept of socialism, and they’re the only reliable voters in the country. That's because those people are still thinking it's still the 1940s-1980s. Socialism can be good if the right people use it. Albert Einstein approve of socialism, and he is one of the sma...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

I'm sure Trump will beat Biden and stack the Supreme Court, leading to a real "Dark Ages" of sort for the next 40 years. Assuming that Biden is going to run against Trump. The Primaries are not even over yet and most of the voting got pushed back until May. People can't give up and assume that Sand...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Hang in there! I hope it's not gona be much longer. I don't know about anywhere else, but if Trump goes through with whatever he's been talking about these last 2 days, then the US is going to make Italy and China look good. I just hope congress and governors can sideline him and do what's right fo...

Re: Vic Mignogna

The bad stuff going on in the US has been going on for ages. As much I hate Trump as the next guy, you can trace back all of this awfulness from the Bush Jr days or even the Reagan days. Bush's bad foreign polices got us into this mess and ICE was even created when he was in office. The 2010s didn't...

Re: Recording vs Buying In the 90's/2000's

You were able to get English fansubs? I was under the impression that most of those were sold in the US. The NTSC/PAL difference probably didn't help matters either. How were you able to acquire them? People got their fansub tapes from fee markets, some comic book shops, hobby shops, and at Convent...

I would either buy or rent things from my local blockbuster. I used to go video rental stores from the day I was born until 2009 when my family got rid of their Blockbuster account.
