Re: Episode #0384 (12 July 2015)

@Mike, Jake and Heath When you guys were saying how you thought it was cheap on Toei's end to use Kai footage for flashbacks I couldn't disagree more. That to me was extreme attention to detail. In Dragon Ball Z, Toei was always using previous stock footage for flashbacks whether it be Dragon Ball s...

Re: Nicktoons Ratings without DBZ.

I know Mr Marc. I just wish Nicktoons was overall higher. I know it has no hope against Adult Swim. Those ratings are for a thursday night at 8 and then 8:30. I'd be happy if it scored a bit more that's all. My point is more, the channel isn't MEANT to be highly rated. Random repeats of Spongebob o...

The magazine is released on the 21st of each month, barring a Sunday or holiday, in which case it gets moved up slightly. ------------- Since the July issue of V-Jump has announced that Dragon Ball Super is going to receive...

Re: Dragon Ball Super manga adaptation: rumor or real?

Yes. That photo comes from Anime News Network (their URL is down in the bottom), and more specifically, the image itself comes from this week's upcoming July 2015 issue of V-Jump . We had some site issues the last couple days and couldn't push out all the news we wanted to, but you can of course lo...

Dragon Ball Super manga adaptation: rumor or real?

"Dragon Ball Insider" recently claimed, without any links but with a posted pic for citation, that: The new Dragon Ball television series Dragon Ball Super was announced to receive a manga adaption in the latest June issue of V-Jump, calling Goku the King of Action with fights beyond our wildest ima...

Re: Anyone that can watch any of the dubs?

If I want to watch Z dubbed I'll watch the funimation singles and my dragon boxes for the other episodes in proper aspect ratio. Aside from the Vegeta arc I cannot stand the dub with the Japanese music, as it just does not mesh with the dub script and acting. Don't get me wrong I'm a fan of the Kik...

Re: To The People That Switched From Dub To Sub...

Do what you like. The "getting used to the voices" statement has always been odd to me as I grew up on Link in Zelda sounding way higher pitched. I've watched the series all the way through multiple times both ways and find that I prefer to flip flop depending on my mood. In the end you'll either li...

Re: What do you prefer for the attack names in sub/dubs?

All that being said, while I do love Steve Simmons work, I think it was incredibly odd he kept Rei Gun in Yu Yu Hakusho rather than translating it as spirit gun but I guess for consistency sake that makes sense...but that's where consistency should not trump an easy direct translation. There's actu...

Re: What do you prefer for the attack names in sub/dubs?

I prefer literal translations where possible and to be left alone where that won't work. I find it odd when a sub just keeps the attack name without a parenthetical explanation. For dragon ball a lot of the attacks have word pun meanings so the parenthetical explanation via sub whould have been nice...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

So did anyone else find it strange in the leaked scene of Goku & Vegeta vs Whis training while the petals were falling in slow motion Whis and Vegeta were talking normally? so do they talk at the same speed of their combat speed? That's really nothing new, if you look back in early Dragon Ball in C...

Re: Orange Bricks vs Blu-Ray Season Sets

Well, then... don't do that. I dunno. I just don't see why you'd even want to, or especially why that would be a factor when purchasing something like this. Hell, with my Dragon Boxes, I display them with the box spines facing out, not the Goku/Gohan image on the other side because I'd rather see *...

Re: Orange Bricks vs Blu-Ray Season Sets

They are both terrible but if you're getting one version get the Orange bricks. The Orange bricks are a better buy because at least the box art for the orange bricks looks good on a shelf. Whereas the the cover art for the blu-rays is awful, and there is no spine art, so displaying the blu-rays tak...

I want ssjg Gokû back so bad, you guys. *Hope intensifies.* Will you still be pumped if ssjg Goku is done in Toriyama's current art style for the series? I could see this new anime being animated based on his current art style, which I don't like as much but could get used to. I'm just hoping Toriy...
