Re: Dragon Ball Z Vegeta Saga II Ultimate uncut edition question

No. The UUE was discontinued altogether after Ultimate Sacrifice to make way for the Orange Bricks. "Vegeta Saga II" was never complete so a boxset wouldn't make sense. Looking back, FUNimation should've never started the UUE in the first place. Not just because they didn't finish it, but because re...

Re: Are the Japanese voices of Dragon Ball too much recycled and full of Miscast?

but your points about Chichi is due to the writing, not the performance. Writing is a big part of it, granted, but some the blame still lies on Watanabe's performance. Shu had this sweet, child-like tone to her voice with a hint of hick to it, which Oolong even pointed out in the manga, whereas Wat...

Re: Are the Japanese voices of Dragon Ball too much recycled and full of Miscast?

When it comes to the original castings, Bardock would the only one I'd consider to be a miscast seeing as how shares none of the naivety and pure-heartedness that the rest of Nozawa's roles share. Really should've gone with Shigeru Chiba seeing as how Bardock has more in common with Raditz than Goku...

That should say 4/10 now.
Universe 3 should also read 5/10. (Nigrisshi, Narirama, The Preecho, Maji-Kayo, and Katopesia)

Re: Cell arc - Does the mystery work well?

In regards to Ekrolo2's question of where the 2nd Future Trunks timeline comes from: According to Dragon Ball time-travel logic, every time a trip to the past occurs, it branches the time-stream. Because Cell time-traveled to a point before Future Trunks' first time-travel, it split the timelines fr...

Re: This is seriously getting ridiculous..

Just because something is not in the manga doesn't make it worthless. Yes it does. The original 519 chapter is a complete story by itself so there's no reason that an anime adaptation couldn't reflect that. If the manga can do without anime original scenes, so can the anime. Filler enchances the st...

Re: This is seriously getting ridiculous..

I have to agree. Shit like Copy Vegeta, 69-76, 83-92, and all the bits of bloat in the main arcs are why I'm sticking with the Super manga even if the one chapter a month thing makes it a little tedious at times. The Super manga at least tries to re-capture the spirit of the original 519 chapter man...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

No, I meant the other Trunks' timeline, how does it exist to branch off into the unseen timeline when there's nothing connecting the two of apocalyptic futures? It's quite simple really. According to Dragon Ball time-travel logic, every time a trip to the past occurs, it branches the time-stream. B...

Re: What's everyone's thoughts on *SPOILER* ​coming back?

I was a bit bummed at first, especially since it came at the cost of Majin Buu instead of Tenshinhan or Muten Roshi, but then I realized it was the perfect opportunity to fix a plot hole. Doesn't Kuriza still need to born? People were whining about Bra all these years, I don't see why Kuriza should ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Man, I got a strong filling that the exhibition matches won't be in the manga or all these recruitment episodes. The manga often makes a lot more sense than the anime, but at what cost? The character interactions are gone. The slice of life moments are gone. The several gas form the anime that are ...

Re: Thoughts on Majin Vegeta

He's nothing more than a plot device to wake up the main villain of the arc. That's all he and the 2nd fight with Goku are, which is why the fight is thankfully so short in the manga.

Re: It should have been 'Revival of C' and not F

Can Cell even be wished back to life? I mean, do artificially created beings even have souls? Would Androids 16 and 19 also be able to come back to life since they too are completely artificially created? (filler, movies, and GT not withstanding obviously)
