I always felt the Japanese BGM captured the flavor of Dragonball better . Sure you get to hear "Cha-la" re-arranged 100 times over but each time it captures a different emotion. Tha's not to say the US BGM isn't good but It just feels like the Japanese BGM gets over Toriyama's sense of fun and wande...

So I've read 2 different things in regards to the opening song:

1. They are re-recording "Cha-la Head Cha-la" (unclear if it is Kageyama)
2. They are giving it a new opening song altogether.

If they are replacing "Cha-la Head cha-la", somehow it just won't be the same...

if a new series is done then it should concentrate on secondary characters. If it weren't for GT i'd say do a show about chibi-Pan with a new supporting cast including Videl, Gohan and Mr. Satan and hell throw in Bra in the Bulma role. Goku should only appear in flashback. If I remember right Toryam...

Most seem to share my dislike of movies 4 and 11, though I'm not a fan of movie 8 either as I really think it drags.

My favorite remains Movie 2 for pre-super-sayaijin stuff and movie 7 for Super Saiyjin material. Also I love movie to death as it features the best looking Kame-hame-ha (imo).

Wiki can be very misleading and biased depending on the writer. I revised the entry for Cha-la head cha-la and added soem recent info.

The fandom has changed significantly. Ten years ago DB had finished its run, hell at this point it had been completed for 5 months. The Dragonball fans were used to watching either raw Japanese episodes and movies or getting them subtitled through the old network (Chinatown Bootleggers, Fansubbers)....

The last bit is a maedley of Jump themed songs (i.e. Shonen Jump) This marks Animetal's second go round on Makafushigi Adventure. It's also...
