Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

Jeez. Two topics about pedophilia in a single week? That’s a little heavy. Anyway, this reminds of a thread I made around the time that the Future Trunks arc started airing, where I pointed out the weirdness of Mai being shipped with Trunks, especially in regards to Kid Trunks. I definitely agree t...

I want this so bad. At the earliest opportunity, I am buying this. It's always good to catch up on all things Dragon Ball history.

A person from college showed me this mashup. Pretty hilarious if I say so myself. Would watch again.

Re: Do you feel it's exciting to be able to watch DBZ on TV?

I think 2005 was when the last time CN played DBZ episodes and I stay up all night to watch the Ultimate Uncut run. I don't feel excited to watch DBZ on TV these days since I seen the show so many times, but I can see why people would due to the nostalgia. Cartoon Network was airing episodes of DBZ...

Re: Embarrassing DB-Related Things You've Done Online

I actually worked on an embarrassing super massive cross-over fanfiction back in late 2008. Due to people hating it, I eventually stopped, but the thought of that still makes me cringe of this date.

The reason why I've hold off the sets is because of the hope that this Blu-Ray release ends up being an affordable release that's good.

Re: DBZ portion of Manga to be in full color?!

That does suck about the digital Shonen Jump; not being able to purchase back issues. At least with the print version, you could still buy the previous issues (either in stores or online.) For the record, I'm perfectly okay with Viz's translation, it's just the visual censoring and (the H-word) tha...

So when does the censor usually start to come in for the manga?

Re: Has funimation ever released DBZ properly?

For all the flaws the Orange Brick has, things could be a lot worse for DBZ fans (and yes, there are anime fan bases that suffer more than DBZ). At least we can eventually expect a proper Blu-ray release which should fix the visual quality. Not that I'm supporting the Orange Box. I plan to hold off ...

Re: How many English releases will you own before you stop?

Waiting until a full Blu-Ray release is done for Z. Not buying the Orange Bricks and the Dragon Box is too expensive. I also plan on eventually getting the Japanese comics once I learn the Japanese language. I need to get the movies as well (particularly 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13 and Battle...

Re: Which of these is the non-censored Manga? (from a newbie

If the upcoming Viz 3-in-1 editions coming out this year are truly uncensored as this post ( https://twitter.com/VIZMedia/status/298498863604580353 ) claims, I'd just wait for those. Personally, I feel the VizBigs are the best value for your money. However, if you want as close to the original Japa...
