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: Alex Kidd was a Dragon Ball game?!?

Wow that's a surprise. Alex Kidd was one of the first games I ever played and all these years I never knew about that connection to Dragon Ball.

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...

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

Each time I see these edits I feel somewhat sad...until I remember just how major the exposure Pop is giving. BARB's released the 7-day ratings for the first week; the first two episodes were 6th and 3rd, with 126,800 and 132,700 viewers respectivley, and episode 5 was 11th with 112,000. 3 & 4 were...

i've been ridiculously sick for the past couple weeks and i've been playing a lot of the HD budokai collection just too pass the time. i really can't stress enough on how clunky budokai 1 is, just the way the ki attacks work make no sense. like i swear so often the opponent just barely gets hurt by...

Re: Is the Budokai/Budokai Tenkaichi games bad?

Budokai 1 and 2 are basically your average licensed fighting games in terms of gameplay. In terms of presentation, music, and fan service they're well above average. B1 had the awesome story mode, and B2 had all those What-if forms. I also think I'm one of the few who liked the Gameboard story in B2...

Re: How much dialog was actually changed from the Funimation original uncut Z dub and the orange brick “uncut redub”

I've always felt like Schemmel's Goku didn't need redubbing as much as Sabat's Vegeta. Sabat's voice for Vegeta had changed completely by the time of the redub. While Sean's acting had improved a great deal over the years, the actual voice itself wasn't that different. Personally I've always wished ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

I noticed Pop are now streaming the show on their Pop app for PS4. So this marks the first time the dub can be streamed in the UK, as I believe Crunchyroll only streamed the Japanese version. I'm guessing it's the same as their TV edit. I wonder if it's HD or not.

Re: A question to those who saw the Saban dub long after the fact

Speaking of the censorship from those days, there's actually only one instance that bugs me to this day, because of how utterly ineffective it was. HFIL? That's just funny in retrospect and, say what you will about it, it at least successfully censored out the word Hell effectively enough. Next Dim...

Re: A question to those who saw the Saban dub long after the fact

I saw the Saban dub around early 2000 not long after it began airing in the UK, and also saw the Season 3 inhouse dub around the same time as we didn't have to wait long for it over here. I became very familiar with both casts around the same time and was very fond of both. I loved the performances ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

Just finished watching episode 1 and really enjoyed it. :) As someone else mentioned, it's edited in dialogue only, so you still see the sign for "Satan City". Aside from that, I only really noticed Roshi's Blu-ray joke being about movies in general rather than dirty movies. Stuff like Trunks beatin...

I'm home from my early shifts in time for the 7pm timeslot, so I'm definitely going to catch the Pop broadcast when I can to do my part for the ratings. Setting any I miss to be recorded as it will be interesting to see the edited dub. Yeah I'll be watching tonight too, and will also record those t...

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

Raditz never killed the farmer in the anime. Only in the manga. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ASsnohpnCI I'm pretty sure he's supposed to be dead. Perhaps you're thinking of the Saban dub, where they had him talk to make it seem like he was alive. Anyway the part where Raditz flicks the bullet a...

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

I noticed a few people are worried about additional censorship. Personally I'm not too worried. The only additional edits I remember for Kai on Kix where Raditz killing the farmer, removing NEPs, and having Dragon Soul as the ending theme too. Aside from that I think it was exactly like the Nicktoon...

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

Note that back in 2001-2006, UK fans got four different casts; Vancouver's Ocean cast for Z 1-53 & 108+, Texas's Funi cast for Z 54-107, Calgary's Blue Water cast for DB and GT, and France's Big Green cast for the movies and specials. And all of this was well-liked, high-rated, etc. etc. And despit...
