Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Something I find interesting when talking about the subject of film restoration/preservation/remastering is just how much clarification the word "old" needs. That may sound kind of silly. Everyone knows what old means. It's a very simple word. But it can easily have connotations that color the cours...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

Gaffer Tape I have a read a thread where you said that you were displeased with Goku's characterization starting from RoF. did you miss Goku's asshole move in BoG? You'll have to link me to said thread. Perhaps I did say that, but it doesn't sound familiar. And given what I've said about Goku's cha...

So is Lance heading into the Freeza Arc for DBDTV now, or will that be after the Cell Arc is completed in normal DBD?

Don't remember the specifics of how these videos are released
Only once The Cell Arc is completed.

Re: Why weren't the NEPs of DBGT included on the Green Bricks?

I'm not buying the idea of "they're redundant because you have the episodes." By that logic, all the recaps should be gone too. In fact, FUNimation's first two DVDs, Ginyu Assault and Ginyu Double Cross, cut those out and fan demand ensured they were reinstated on all future releases. But if spendin...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

Once MistareFusion goes over the Namek Anime portion, I really hope they dissect the "production issues" behind Super Saiyan Goku v Freeza. The anime got too close to the manga release date wise, so I think that pretty much explains the slight slight slight disaster of a fight we had. For example, ...

Re: Ch 165: "Help me think up some new clothes!"

There was a contest going on at the time. If you look at the title page for Chapter 163, you can see Goku in his boxers asking for the same thing. I would assume the car is the prize. Huh that's pretty cool! What was the winning entry for it? I'm not entirely sure, but I've seen it speculated that ...

Re: DBZ is still DB

Very very very ignorant question, but would consider Super as still apart of DB? (Excluding the obvious fact that Super itself isn't apart of the 42 volumes). No. Well, I should clarify. It is part of the Dragon Ball franchise, obviously. But it is not Dragon Ball in the context that is being discu...

Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

I seem to recall in BoG at least that the crush was completely one-sided in favor of Trunks. Mai being attracted to a pubescent boy, which, I don't care what the context or level of realism is, is disgusting and criminal. Trunks chasing after her I find completely fine and ripe for comedic potential...

The one thing I disagreed with was your berating of 18's shopping scene. I'm so glad you're enjoying them! As for that, I would not call that berating since I wasn't even actually criticizing it at all. It was a hypocritical joke at my own expense. Coola it will be seven years this January, don't s...

Basically, Vegeta has a trolley problem to solve. What's more important? The lives of everyone on the planet or fighting Cell? Do you really need to ask?

Re: Mistake in the site's Rumor Guide

Hmm, sort of doesn’t make sense for Piccolo to go train with North Kaio during the Namek arc then.. I mean, I know the whole North, West, etc. thing wasn’t written until much later, but still. Why not? Piccolo's an Earthling. He was born on Earth, lived his entire life on Earth, and not only died o...

There was a brief time I visited DBZOA a lot. However, it was mostly because they were hosting the defunct DBZ Uncensored. I do remember checking out some of their content.
