Re: Why wasn't DB Kai a completely new animated series?

In hindsight, Kai reusing old animation was probably the best choice. If they did redo it from the ground up, it would have been done on the budget of an old Scooby Doo episode. Also it was visually a nice break from the more glossy look of post 90's DB art.

Re: Vic Mignogna

The problem here is that the right is better at marketing than the left is. They insert themselves into corners of the internet ripe with young minds, like gaming and 4chan and then hide their bigotry in 'irony' and 'sarcasm'.

Re: Vic Mignogna

It's too late/not a good idea for me to attempt socializing in the "real world" outside of school/work. Anyway if you recall the "hipster" movement from the early 2010's, you would remember that it was heavily mocked; especially in online nerd/geek circles. It was basically the forerunner to the "so...

This is just hilarious to me. Wow. I don't get men. Snip The problem most people have with the term "toxic masculinity" is that a distinction between it and normal masculinity is very rarely drawn.

Re: Petition to use SS, not SSJ, as an abbreviation for Super Saiyan

As someone from the that weird generation of fans that's in-between the original dub of Z and the Nicktoons generation I absolutely refuse not to use SSJ. Due to being in the fandom when it was still mostly fans from the late 90's/early 2000's I've been using that abbreviation before I even knew abo...

Re: Are Power Scalers a cause or symptom of toxicity in the fandom?

To be honest; over the years I've actually become more empathetic to "power scalers."

The people who dislike them seem to be so weird about it, and demonise fans who are more or less just having fun.

Re: How much discussion of "canon" was there pre-BOG?

From what I remember it was mostly arguments on whether GT was canon, and which of the movies could fit in with the manga.

Re: Can we have a site grievances thread?

If it could be overloaded, characters like Freeza and Cell would have probably done it to the characters already.

Re: Dragon Ball Dragon Box have redubbed part

If this is indeed real and not a hoax, then that brings up the question of when exactly the second audio was recorded.

As for why it was recorded, my best guess is that maybe they lost literally every single source of that clip and had to redub it. Why they changed the dialogue is beyond me.

Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

"King Cold would have been more powerful than Perfect Cell if he had transformed." That isn't that stupid, if we assume he could have transformed. But the fact is that he can't If he transformed he would most likely only be as powerful as Freeza (Pre-RoF) at 75-90%. Admittedly I'm behind on recent ...

Re: Would it be correct to say that the old Funi singles were an honest representation of what the show looks like?

No, the Dragon Box with corrected colors would probably be the closest representation of what the show is "supposed" to look like. As they're sourced from the original masters. The reason dubs fro other countries look so similar is most likely due to the fact Toei gave them the same or similar foota...

Yes. I was thinking a few weeks ago about how getting into Dragon Ball had a huge butterfly effect on my life.

There are people who exist that actually prefer the muffled audio? What?
The most common reasoning I've seen, is that the low quality audio fits with the aesthetic of Drragon Ball and makes it feel like an old martial arts film, or something like that.

Not to play moderator; but is there any reason for this thread to still be going? It's turned into a complete shit show and you're all not even talking about Vic Mignogna (who's not even involved with Dragon Ball now) anymore. I've seen way tamer threads get locked on this forum.
