Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 5/25/20!)

I'm loving this conversation right now because, well, Boo Arc Part 4 is done and is going up on Patreon tomorrow, and a lot of this stuff about Gohan's role in the story continues in that video. Even what FoolsGil is saying about Goku being a plot device gets a little quip from me.

Videl: First Crush, First Flight - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Majin Boo Arc Part 3! Dragon Ball Dissection returns with training for the upcoming tournament. So naturally this episode focuses on Son Goten and Videl and Super Saiyan Bargain Sales. Is Goten a worthy addition to the cast? How about t...

Re: So, did DBZ Movie 14, and everything after scratched your DB itch?

If ever I have or had a "DB itch" then going back and reading/watching Dragon Ball is all I need to do. To be sure, BoG felt like a fun reunion, and I've always enjoyed it, although it did feel rather like it was cribbing heavily from the JSAT special. Most everything after that has been an exercise...

Re: What do you think of the YouTuber Totally Not Mark's analysis videos?

MistareFusion/Gaffer Tape of this very forum is better at analyzing and... well... dissecting the series in my eyes. Mark is certainly one of the better ones though. I appreciate his knowledge of the Japanese side of the series as opposed to some other Dragon Ball YouTubers who seem to base all of ...

The Discarded Superhero - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Majin Boo Arc Part 2! As usual, patrons got to see this a couple of days early, but I figured we all needed a stay-at-home distraction. Plus, since last episode was all about Gohan becoming a superhero, I couldn't wait to dig in to how badly it ...

Huge fan of this series, Gaffer you are easily my favorite DB related Youtuber out there. Yeah, and is one of the few who actually know anything about the series and doesn't base their analysis and speculation on the FUNimation dub script and other misconceptions. That's very kind of you both, and ...

Re: Is DBZ Sci-Fi?

Capsules are used on earth by humans for human purposes. Spaceships and time machines are used to visit other worlds. Isn’t that a huge difference? Perhaps if capsules had been used for more than storage I’d grant your point. Maybe it's unfair of me to cherry pick one part of you post. However, it ...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Yes, they were able to change that marketing because of the huge tonal shifts. There's a reason it happened with the arrival of Raditz, and not Demon King Piccolo. Goku (and Piccolo) being aliens was such a twist it was a retcon AFAIC. No. The reason it happened at Raditz is because Morishita took ...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

There's a reason Toei called it Dragon Ball Z - it's so different from Dragon Ball. Yes, there is a reason Toei called it Dragon Ball Z, and it has nothing to do with ongoing gradual narrative shifts that those involved in the production at the time would have had little way of seeing in a broader ...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Is it? Her shirt litterally says bulma on it, and its how the main man himself canonized the non kanji spelling of it. To me blooma is a half done translation of what should be bloomer as thats the english name for the type of underwear her name is supposed to be. So bulma isnt as bad to me because...

Though i cant lie it does make me at least a bit relieved they didnt use even worse dub translated names like blooma and likum like some of the other dubs supposedly did.
Now you're hitting me where I live. "Blooma" is a much more accurate and complete translation than "Bulma."

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Speaking as somebody who's definitely soured a bit on the dub score...there HAS always been a prevailing dismissiveness of its fanbase on here - the belief that they're mostly speaking from nostalgia and their arguments don't have much merit. I do think it can be a difficult line to walk sometimes....

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I'm asking purely to learn not to attack, but how is toei using the names that they'd oked for their licensed dub eroding anything when they're trying to market internationally? It doesnt go back and change the audio i usually listen to when watching dragon ball. I don't see how it could be seen as...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

In that case they at least didn’t have to throwback to even the low-tier studio recording quality that makes it all sound ridiculous (as far as the use in the show goes). They didn't. Japanese Dragon Ball now sounds the way it does because the audio masters were thrown out by Toei after each episod...

The story arcs don’t exist in a vacuum. Goku’s character arc in the Saiyan and Namek arc are pretty interwoven. The Saiyan arc is the set up the Namek arc is the pay off. You're right. The story arcs don't exist in a vacuum. That's why what little payoff there is to Goku's story feels so distant an...
