Re: Chris Sabat reveals another reason why the music was changed. (and is open to changing Super's score)

TOEI is holding out giving Super to Funimation because they're waiting for Buu Kai (which was created for us in the first place) to air on TV so that they can follow it up with Super. The whole 'Is Toei afraid Funimation will make alterations' is laughable. You give Toei way too much credit, as long...

Re: Did anyone else get into Dragon Ball long after it had aired on North American TV?

I knew the franchise existed because of how huge it was while I was growing up but I never watched it consistently. I'd watch a random episode here or there but I didn't really know much about the story line. It wasn't until 2009 that I actually started to watch the series all the way through. I sta...

Re: Dragon Ball Z Kai: Yamamoto Revival (Parts 5-8) - COMPLETED!

Thank you sir, words can't describe how awesome this is. I loved Kai parts 1-4, they were just so good Yamamoto score and all, when the Cell arc came around though with the replacement score it kinda ruined Kai for me and just left me with a bad taste in my mouth in regards to the product as a whole...

Re: Is Nozawa's voice the only thing that turns people off of the Japanese version?

Man this thread devolved into Sub/Dub wars quickly. Guys people are going to prefer the version they saw first, generally these days the version anime fans see first is the Japanese version thanks to the Internet. Shows like Naruto or One Piece for example are years ahead of their respective dubs an...

I'm sure you can get the seasons cheaper than that individually.. ?
Yeah in the U.S. you can pick them up on Amazon for $25-$30 each. So around $250 for all 9. This set will retail for around $300 in U.S. currency.

Re: *sigh* Can someone just like...give me their Dragon Boxe

I don't know the releases by heart, but I've seen a Spanish and French version of DBZ online that looked decent and were in 4:3. Of course, they could have been edited, so don't take my word for it. As for adding subtitles, it wouldn't be too hard to transplant the subtitles from torrents of the of...

Re: *sigh* Can someone just like...give me their Dragon Boxes?

That's basically piracy if you were ok with that than you might as well just find that entire release online. That's all beside the point though, I'm not saying that it is impossible to acquire the series in its proper form I'm just saying that it's difficult everywhere, not just in the US. I've nev...

Re: *sigh* Can someone just like...give me their Dragon Boxe

The Japanese Dragon Box Collection can be acquired for much cheaper. Not to mention that their Boxes cover the entire series, not just episodic DBZ. Much cheaper than what? The Funimation dragon boxes? The Dragon Box in Japan was also a limited release after which TOEI started selling the individua...

Re: *sigh* Can someone just like...give me their Dragon Boxe

I think this misses the point. Most of us probably don't care about having a near-copy of the original broadcast look, I sure don't. We just want a release that looks decent. Even Green Bricks quality would be fine for most of us. That's not too much to ask for, right? Especially since, after seein...

Re: *sigh* Can someone just like...give me their Dragon Boxe

I feel like the die-hard fan base is the one who really cares so much about it being as close to the original as possible. How many fans even watch it illegally? For a casual fan that liked DBZ as a kid, sure, why not pick up the $35 DVD as opposed to $70 (the Dragon Boxes' original price). I think...

Re: You think some fans are destroying the Dragonball Community??

I always felt that what separated Dragon Ball fans from that of other series is that at the very least everybody pretty much liked the story of the original manga. I don't see this at all. There's no shortage "if only this was different" or "this character should've done this" sentiments. Well I me...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

It's not like DBZ didn't have tons of filler as well, it's just mixed in with Canon material which makes it unskippable.

Though I will admit it definitely holds up better than Naruto or One Piece. I haven't watched the dragged out One Piece anime in years.

Uh, her performance didn't come a sa shock. I just didn't like it. And I have not heard her do Kid Goku, though I'e heard that it's basically her Goten performance.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Speaking of voices. I don't like Nozawa's voice for anyone other than Gohan. What about kid Goku? I feel like her portrayal of the character makes a lot more sense if you see the progression during the original series. Her kid voice gets slightly deeper as you would expect from someone who goes thr...

Re: How Many Fights Has Goku Won and Lost?

That puts his DBZ record at 3 - 9 - 2 and his overall record at 19 - 17 - 2. That's worse than many professional fighters, now that I think about it. Any major fights I missed out on? While his record may not be the best there is a big difference between him and real life Profesional fighters. As t...
