Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

I can completely understand why Funimation have gone back to their old approach for Super. Many of the purists who spent years rallying against the Z dub still refuse to watch the Kai dub, despite it being mostly very accurate and well acted. They literally refuse to watch anything other than the o...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I've never cared for next episode previews. Even in Japanese they always felt silly and out of place, especially with the darker tone of Z and GT (OG DB is alright I guess), plus they usually spoil the best parts of the upcoming episode. I can see where you're coming from. People complain that the ...

Re: Why do so many people dislike GT Pan?

Sexism. Mostly the creators are at fault here, who decided to turn Gohan's daughter and Goku's granddaughter into a damsel-in-distress only because she's a girl. They couldn't even bother giving her a SSJ form, like how hard it is to make her a SSJ? Tons of fan artists were able to do it, but profe...

Re: UK Kai Seasons going out of print

From what I hear Manga UKs Blu-Rays and DVD seasons were based on Madman's Parts and Complete Collection respectively, the former uses Yamamoto up to Episode 39 and the latter uses the score for episodes 1-13 and 27-39. Apparently later printings of all Madman's sets used the Kikuchi score for all ...

Re: Kirby Morrow, Third Canadian Voice of Goku, Passes Away

This is really sad and unexpected news. I grew up listening to his Goku for the late Cell and Buu arcs. I wasn't a huge fan of the Westwood dub, but I always felt he was a good Goku, and he stuck with the role for a long time. And he was great as Cyclops in Xmen Evolution. R.I.P and condolences to h...

Re: A Change of Heart

I guess I'll say Chi Chi, at least in Z. She does have her moments, like throwing Gohan's tutor out the window, or punching out that obnoxious lady at the 25th Tournament. She does genuinely care for her family and puts up with a lot of neglect. She became a caricature in Super like many other chara...

Re: UK Kai Seasons going out of print

That is a real shame, as they were only released in 2015. Maybe they don't want it competing with Z? I will say that while I always see DB/Z/GT/Super in HMV, I never see Kai. I know it didn't sell that well, but would have hoped it would stay in print for a few more years for those who don't have it...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don't buy that Goku was ever afraid for his family's safety. I can believe that he was scared instead of excited, but not for those kinds of reasons. If we're counting filler then the pre-Kaioken x20 dream sequence says otherwise. An opinion of mine that seems unpopular on here is the middle port...

Re: Why do so many people dislike GT Pan?

Pan’s abuse of Gill isn’t an especially endearing quality. This 100%. I'm surprised I forgot to mention it. It comes across as needlessly mean spirited. We have a character who is obnoxiously disrespectful to pretty much everyone, causes problems for others while contributing nothing, is caught up ...

Re: Why do so many people dislike GT Pan?

It's not a matter of respect. It's kids being kids. They go through phases as they grow up. They often first start off wanting to be around their families all the time and then they grow embarassed and often wanting independence from their parents/grandparents. She's a KID. And she's not even 10 in...

Re: What time of the year is considered "peak Dragon Ball" to you?

Summer because of nostalgia of long marathons on TV during school holidays.

And October-December because we always used to get a new game during that period.

Re: Why do so many people dislike GT Pan?

Really, would you call that disrespect? It's pretty standard behavior for kids towards grandparents. Standard for younger kids too young to know right from wrong perhaps. At any rate it's clear she had much more respect for him during EoZ. Perhaps him leaving for 5 years and then showing up in a ki...

Re: Why do so many people dislike GT Pan?

I think it's the fact that she initially shows zero respect towards Goku, who most of us have enormous respect for. We've spent years watching him do incredible things, overcoming insane obstacles, training his ass off, and saving the world/universe. Then along comes this obnoxious brat who has the ...

Re: MangaUK announce TFC for UK!

I'm in the same boat. I felt lucky enough to make back enough from selling my US Final Chapters Blu-Rays to pay for the UK ones when they were on sale, but having them look better on the shelf with my UK Kai 1.0 Blu-Rays was an added bonus. I'm still missing the UK seasons 3 and 4 (have the US Blu-...

Re: MangaUK announce TFC for UK!

I finally decided to get the UK release of TFC, as all 3 parts are currently £15 on zavvi. I'd imported the US release a few months before Manga UK announced theirs, but I still wanted the UK release for consistency with my Kai 1.0 blu-rays, and I just like supporting the UK releases.
