Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

So far I think the game is pretty good. I've put in about 4 hours and am only on the training for the Saiyans arrival. I'm not rushing through it too fast. All the RPG elements and various systems feel like a lot to take in. I'm usually more of a fighting game player, so I guess this is to be expect...

Re: Is the argument against Fusion hypocritical?

When I saw the thread title, I assumed this was more of a meta question regarding fan backlash against Fusion. Anyway, if we’re going to be completely honest here, the whole idea of Goku being against Fusion has always seemed like a difficult pill to swallow for me. I mean, Goku was the one who sug...

Is the argument against Fusion hypocritical?

I think it is. And I mean from Toriyama, fans, and the characters in-universe. Toriyama said he never intended for Goku and Vegeta to fuse again after the Buu saga, as it would go against their characters. Obviously he was referring to their pride, and the scene were they decide to fight Kid Buu wit...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

I'll also agree with what others have said about Ian James Corlett. He was a fantastic Goku. Really natural sounding delivery and just a pleasure to listen to. I even enjoy just listening to him in interviews, as he more or less sounds like Goku in them too, which is by no means a bad thing. Even no...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

I grew up watching the UK broadcast, so had lots of exposure to both the Canadian and Texas casts. To this day I still love the Saban dub of those first 2 seasons. The script never bothered me, the acting was awesome in general, and I really enjoy Ron Wasserman's music. For me the Westwood dub just ...

Re: Dub Mistake #4,862: Piccolo Has Always Hated Gohan?

I remember that line, so it can't be a YTV only thing. I think it's meant to allude to the fact that Goku and Piccolo were still enemies during Movie 1, which is when Garlic Jr last encountered them. If Piccolo hated Goku at that time, then it would be a natural assumption for those guys to think he...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I like the Sumitomo score in Kai TFC, and consider it to be an improvement over the limited Kikuchi placement of Kai 1.0. I also much prefer "Fight it out" to the Japanese broadcast opening, which a lot of people seem to like more. I think the latter sounds more like a generic anime opening, while t...

Re: MangaUK announce TFC for UK!

For anyone who hasn't bought these sets yet parts 2 and 3 can now be bought for £14.39 . Great deal, I'd be jumping on it if I hadn't bought them previously. Base.com has those 2 for the same price, and part 1 for £13:99; https://www.base.com/fsearch.htm?search=dragon+ball+kai I'd be all over it my...

Re: ss4 started trend of overdesigned fan fictiony forms

SS4 is also considered to be the biggest redeeming quality for GT. Personally I think it looks awesome, particularly on Goku. Those fan fiction forms like SS5 do take it too far, but SS4 as is looks really cool and unique. As long as those fan fiction forms remain just that, then the trend doesn't b...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Just curious what you guys think the chances are of them repackaging this for a standard release later on. And if so, would Funimation finally do away with the 9 Season format and release it as 4 sets like it is now? And also would it be fair to compare this release to something like the DB Blue Bri...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

For £300 I'll have to say thanks but no thanks. I'd have preferred them to put out the previous Season Blu-rays, as at least they wouldn't be such a ridiculous price. The recent Batman TAS Collectors Edition Blu-ray wasn't anywhere near this expensive (episode count taken into consideration), and th...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

To be clear, I’m referring specifically to the animated movies that were distributed by Toei Animation, so Dragon Ball: Evolution and the other two live action movies don’t count. Anyway, while opinions on the movies of course vary, I’m curious if there’s any generally accepted consensus on which o...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Speaking of, anyone else find it suspicious that the Goku-likes tend to be better characters on average? Like they get special treatment? When you think about the unfair kit in this game, it usually goes back to one of them- Bardock's buttons, Vegetto's autocombo, Goku Black's 2H, GT's...everything...

Re: What parts of the franchise evoke nostalgia for you?

All of it, but the Saiyan and Frieza sagas especially. Back in 2000 Cartoon Network UK would always get as far as Trunks warning Goku about the Androids, and then go back to Raditz. It was like this for what seemed like an eternity when I was a kid. I loved the Saban dub with its dark score which fi...

Re: The differences between Toei Goku and Manga Goku

Its been a few years since I posted this topic, but I've recently been thinking about the Kaioken x20 scene. It was always a strong scene, but was made so much better in the anime with the extra bits added in. In the manga the appeal of the scene was mostly the high stakes, with Goku realising he ha...

Re: Is the Budokai/Budokai Tenkaichi games bad?

Budokai 1 still has the best 3D story mode in all of Dragon Ball games. The way the characters move and act is really detailed and it's impressive. There's no "stock animations", like in Budokai Tenkaichi/Burst Limit/Raging Blast/Xenoverse story modes. Yes Budokai 1 still has the best cutscenes for...
