Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

The problem with the "It takes away roles" argument is that it implies minorities are only able to voice characters that represent how they are in real life. And most shows that have white characters voicing people of color usually have tiny voice casts anyway. Commander Black was voiced by Chris Sa...

Re: How to properly watch GT ?

Just watch the series? :eh: I don't get the idea of finding some random customized way of watching a series that was clearly supposed to be watched from beginning to end. Ironically, making a customized way of watching the show is exactly what FUNimation did when it aired on Cartoon Network. Yes an...

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

You can't really say "yes" or "no" to this question. One fan could write junk, while another could write a fan favorite story.

SSJ5 is probably the only surefire thing that would have definitely shown up sooner or later.

Re: “There is nothing to learn from Dragon Ball,” says Akira Toriyama’s editor, Kazuhiko Torishima

Yeah, apart from some minor character development and such, and some interesting lore; there really isn't much to the story.

With the huge influx of 30 something pseudo intellectuals lately trying to make out everything has hidden depths, it's good to admit some series are just dumb fun.

Re: Can we talk about the Funimation Movie Soundtracks?

I've never really had a problem with the "real bands" scores since the DBZ movies always had less plot than the main series, and you were pretty much just watching 40-60 minutes of characters punching each other. Drowning Pool and Disturbed music works just fine for that.

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

IIRC Funimation wanted to use a lot more faithful terms/names for their Kai dub, but figured it would alienate too many lomg term dub fans. As for "Arcosian" I don't think I've ever even heard another fan bring that up except for stories about old fan theories. I think it's something that's long gon...

Re: GT Blu-Ray Release

I'm surprised GT hasn't gotten released on Blu-Ray considering how short it is compared to Z. They could easily release it in 2 sets like the Green ones or even 3 sets. Possibly even one set. Another advantage of Blu Ray is that they can fit more onto each disc. Hence why you sometimes see entire s...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

You could solve every power scaling inconsistency in the franchise by going "The big numbers don't actually mean what you think they do, and Freeza probably isn't *that* much more powerful than Raditz.

Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

I have much older siblings who were into it when DBZ was big in the west, back in the late 90's/early 2000's. So Dragon Ball is something I've been aware of for literally as long as I can remember.

Goku hums it in the Funimation dub of GT during one of the episodes with the six star dragon.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Still, I'd even take the filler music and less memorable tracks over the Wasserman score. For all it's shortcomings I still think the in-house Funimation score is the superior of the two in every way. The only time IMO the Ocean score was memorable was during the Ginyu Force introduction, where the ...
