Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

You know, I get most of the sentiments expressed in this thread. I only have one question... What's everyone's deal with the music? I thought that, aside from the instruments themselves, it was an improvement in virtually every way! It's my favorite anime soundtrack to date; It's even inspired me t...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

S3 itself was passable for 1999 (And even in early 2000's. Look at 4Kids dubs made around that time for One Piece or Tokyo Mew Mew). I have to disagree with this part specifically. Gundam Wing's dub hit Toonami about six months after DBZ S3 premiered and it was AMAZING!! It put DBZ to shame SO HARD...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

It's safe to say that the terrible dub is definitely a huge contributing factor to how I became so obsessed with the manga. I would've liked the manga either way, but the fact that the version of the anime I had access to was garbage outside of three films I taped off Toonami definitely threw me dee...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

Fair enough. Has anyone here argued that old DB material should be edited? And I don't just mean this thread. Has anyone seen anyone on this forum argue that the anime and manga should edit out "outdated LGBT+" content? I don't believe so. A couple of middle fingers were removed from two shots out ...

Re: So how does one *correctly* hug their fans?

Like I said: At a public event? Sure! I'm not that popular, but i do have some fans and followers as well as online friends that I may not necessarily recognize in person. In that scenario, just ask! If you try me at Starbucks or something, I might be a little more reluctant. But the important thing...

Re: So how does one *correctly* hug their fans?

It's not that hard to ask me (one of those mysterious "women" that roam the wilds of Forever 21) for a hug if we meet at a public event. If I say yes, then you do it like a normal non-creepy person does. Of course, this is an offshoot of the whole Vic thing so we'll just get right to it. Wanna make ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I just hope it's not the censored movies... Yeah. I mean, I don't own any of them outside Path to Power, so I'll be getting them regardless, but I'd prefer them uncensored. Wouldn't it be better to actually get FUNimation's old release? I'm willing to grit my teeth and give up a couple middle finge...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I don't know if anybody said this , but it could be the new remasters of the movies that Toei released a while ago. That would be nice considering that they never got around to releasing DBox the Movies. However, I think Japan is overdue for a new full home release and if Toei has a hand in this 30...

Don't act like I'm asking him to personally apologize for each individual instance of misconduct on some sort of list. However, this whol...

Re: Vic Mignogna

No, because he's done a lot more than that in way more blatant ways than that and he knows it. He's not owning up to those things at all and that basically makes both of his statements so far non-apologies that deflect from some real issues that he needs to work on. LIke what exactly? Pretty much e...

Re: Vic Mignogna

No, but it IS a bit of false equivalency. A criminal? Maybe. A rapist? No. Yet people are treating him as if he IS one. That's kind of the problem with treating everything bad as if it's on the same level, which internet outrage culture tends to do. He took pictures with fans & got a bit too comfor...

It is pretty much the anti-sjw crowd that come out of their bigoted holes whenever anything like this happens.

Re: Vic Mignogna

I don't really think you parsed your argument as well as you could've, but to respond, that is more of a case of a person who's been identified as a suspect in a murder & there's a thing out for their arrest. It also seems like that's an open & shut case. With Vic, a lot of the evidence seems to be...

Re: Vic Mignogna

The problem is that Vic's earned a reputation for this sort of thing over a number of years because fans and con staff shared their stories but the companies who employed him did nothing. I honestly believe that the reason Funimation finally took action was because Vic's coworkers spoke up this time.

I get it. I honestly do. I will say, though, that it's really, really hard to not want someone's head when you've been a victim of the person's sexual misconduct. Especially when like a thousand people still celebrate the man and also repeatedly demand proof that's obviously unobtainable (like I wea...

Re: Do you agree that it's silly to hate something because it has a cringy and obsessive fandom?

There are a few things I'm into where I'm either very selective about what parts of the community I interact with or I just don't get involved in their fan communities at all. Part of this is due to how the community is known to act. The other is because I've been so heavily invested in Dragon Ball ...
