Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

As far as what New Broly brings to the table, I think he could easily slot into Gohan's old role when Super comes back. He has the same gimmick Gohan did, exponential power boosts brought on by rage. He's also got batshit insane potential like Gohan, he can beat Goku and Vegeta at once with few zenk...

Re: English Movie Titles - TOEI Vs. FUNimation

The Funi titles seem to be way better for the most part. Maybe these titles sound better in Japanese, but "Super Battle in the World", and "Super Guy in the Galaxy" are just 0 effort titles. They sound like bootlegs.

10 Billion Power Warriors sounds really cool for some reason though. :lol:

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

There is definitely a part of me that wants to plop $350 that I don't have on this, but another, larger part of me is holding out on them releasing this as a budget release like Toei did with the Dragon Boxes (which I wish Toei would have let Funi do, but that's neither here nor there). About where...

Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

Roshi is viable in the Tournament of Power based on sheer force of will. He's significantly weaker than Raditz and has no place being a part of the tournament, yet he is, and he lasts quite a while. My point is, Super Saiyan doesn't suddenly ruin Humans and Namekians. Toriyama could've given them p...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I thought that one day FUNimation would redub Z and this could have been their near-perfect release but they're just a bunch of cheapskates. If this was a real hardcore DBZ release with Level Set quality then they could've easily charge $500-700 for it. That's what I'm thinking, this set should've ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

They want it to look bright, vibrant, and remove the grain so that it looks clear, modern, kinda like cels. I find this idea hilarious considering how much they darken and desaturate the greens. In comparison to the OBs and the Season Blurays which were criticized for being overly bright, but not i...

Re: Dragon Ball Evolution: A 10th Anniversary Retrospective

Maybe I've been spoiled by the past decade of fantastic & generally faithful comic book adaptations (ex. the Marvel films), but it's kind of amazing to me that this film got greenlit at all. Not only is it pretty awful, but it bears very little resemblance to the source material, both in plot and in...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've spent the day kinda mulling the new footage over, and here's my thoughts. This release isn't objectively bad like the Orange Bricks and the Season Blurays, but it does seem lazy. It's clear to me that Funi has a goal in mind with this release. They want it to look bright, vibrant, and remove th...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Omg I can’t get over how overly red that Gohan picture is. Buying this set is such a gamble. I guess if anything it's more color-accurate & sharper than the DBoxes? Even if they DNRd it up. Looking at the raws, some of these zooms just seem unnecessarily far. Like they get past the border curve/wha...

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

IMO it's the best Dragon Ball film by a significant margin except for maybe Battle of Gods. I can't really say where it'd be compared to other non-DB films, I'm kinda biased as a super DB fan lol

Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

Obligatory "I want new characters first" sentiment. But if they do decide to bring older characters in, here's some pitches. Cooler - Freeza's alive again, and we've never seen these two interact. It'd be really interesting to see how Freeza and Cooler get along, maybe New Cooler has a drastically d...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

A step up from 0 to 0.1 is nothing to celebrate. The before shots look nice. Fuck me. You're right. The Level sets seem like the best of both worlds, not as grainy as the raws and not as brutally filtered as Funi's remasters tend to be. This black brick seems like a weird compromise between the Blu...

Re: So Moro Is A Retread Of Piccolo Daimao?

Daimao's backstory with an upgraded version of Cell's/Buu's/Yakon's absorption powers. Instead of sticking someone with a tail or physically absorbing them it pretty much functions like an involuntary Spirit Bomb. I still like him though, and I think his dynamic with that Freeza Force guy is kinda i...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Positive response from Funi, the zoom is due to the low-quality source material that would be too costly to manually edit like the Level sets, so it makes a bit more sense. I'm glad they're communicating. What they showed off in that new trailer looks pretty okay. 4:3 and the colors look better than...

Re: What happened to Oob?

Nothing happened to Oob. During Super, he's 5 years old. He can't meet Goku & the Z-Fighters because that pretty directly contradicts EoZ, so until Toriyama decides to go there, Oob's out of the picture. Wouldn't surprise me if the next time period takes place immediately after EoZ though, and is th...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I get the impression the "I stand with Vic" faction doesn't really understand how businesses work. If you're an employer (Funi) and your employees (Rial and Marchi) make it public that another employee (Mignogna) has sexually harassed them, and there's a bunch of accusations from other women, you fi...

Re: Was Gohan consistently training after the events of F?

I don't think so, he just trained before the ToP so he wouldn't get wrecked so easily. Aside from that he's pretty much retired.
