Re: Which dialogue changes do you think hurt the dub the mos

Thing is, they're not calling it an adaption. They're selling the series as "Dragonball", they're presenting it as being "Dragonball in English", they're spreading the word that this is what Dragonball is... and, well, it's not. You can't just write it off as "this weird alternate adaptation of Dra...

Re: Which dialogue changes do you think hurt the dub the mos

Yeah... I guess it could be looked at as him being responsible in part for the Red Ribbon Army based on the dub version. But hey, at least they didn't bend that entire thing too much out of shape. The weird implications come in during Roshi's explination to Marron about the Red Ribbon. It was durin...

Re: Different Foods in Dragonball

I remember in the Funimation Dub, Kaio-Sama makes a joke referencing dim-sum. He's talking about how he's going to have some food I don't remember "and dim-sum dim-sum." I remember him making a similar joke. "Ya lose some and you dim-sum!" In the Bardock special the fat guy on Bardock's crew is eat...

Re: Kai for the original series

I'm pretty confident music will be an obstacle unless you're using the 5.1 dub where you can separate audio and video. A lot of fan made "fillerless" battles suffer from this, made worse by them using the non stop Falcouner music. Of course that won't be an issue if you're just doing Dragon Ball I d...

Re: Anime Filler Plot-holes/Inconcestencies

There we go, added to the list.

I can imagine the mods are going to get mad if I keep saying "added" every post I make so from here on fourth I won't announce it each and every time. :lol:

Re: Anime Filler Plot-holes/Inconcestencies

Right, I agree. My point is there isn't anything in the actual story that says these things. Much like The Phantom Menace you can come up with explanations for a lot of the silly stuff and they could be good but if the material doesn't explain itself it's a plot hole or an inconsistency. At the time...

Re: Anime Filler Plot-holes/Inconcestencies

-Goku wished all the evil people on Earth away yet Pilaf remained in GT. That's not essentially a plot-hole. Pilaf, Mai and Shuu are nowhere to be truly evil. This is evident in the scene which Pilaf sent a kiss to Bulma. Yeah I've considered that but as I said I was going to avoid fan explanations...

Thanks for the correction, edited final point to be more in line with what Daisuki said. Edit: I vaguely remember either on the podcast or on the forum somebody said when Kuririn and gang were sent to "Planet Vegeta" that it was during a Saiyan civil war. Was that an official remark from a guide or ...

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

Can anyone tell me what's being said in this exchange? I'm curious because the dub line has Muten Roshi saying he doesn't care for Ox King but here his inflection doesn't seem to match that .

Anime Filler Plot-holes/Inconcestencies

I know this is a somewhat tired topic and I’m not trying to lambast the anime or anything but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a complete list of these. I tried to remember all of the anime created plot-holes in DB/DBZ and have come up with the list below. I know a lot of these are easily explained away...

Oolong's Pilaf Arc Outfit

Does Oolong's Chinese communist uniform in the Pilaf arc mean anything? Was he wearing it for a reason or did Toriyama just think it was neat looking and toss it on him? DB Wikia seems to think this was some sort of political commentary by Toriyama but that seems out of character to me.
