Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

It's even sillier to look at when the folks I see getting wrapped up in it don't even have access to the products they're trying to promote. the way I process Dragon Ball is different than how they process Dragon Ball so it's best that we just let each other do our own thing. Huh... Shouldn't you p...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The raw unfortunately does not look as good in motion and making it reasonably presentable is a lot of work. It really is a huge undertaking. I believe they could do it, but they would need to plan it a little better than they did this remaster, or the Level Sets remaster. Both suffered from differ...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

The revival of the franchise has afforded me some great opportunities! I've been to some cool places, some fun DB events, and made some really good friends from doing so! I've also experienced some hardship from it but I think I came out stronger for it! Some folks also think I've squandered my oppo...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Dragon Ball is born from Toriyama's love of Kung Fu cinema. If whoever is working on this rumored project keeps that in mind, they could end up making something at least as good as Dragon Tiger Gate (you can watch it on Netflix in the USA). DTG was adapted from a Chinese comic and is a very good mov...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It's interesting how the watery line work on from the Cell Game that's present on the Blu-ray sets are also present on the 30th Anniversary sets.

And what's this I've read on Twitter about Funi adding fake grain on top of the footage as a form of damage control?

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

You are free to interpret Piccolo however you like. If him being a plant alien in a strange world resonates with someone being nonbinary, then all the power to you. You seem to throw out a lot of strawman arguments - acknowledging something that is blatantly related to identity politics as such is ...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Hi. There's not a ton of positive queer representation in mainstream media. If there is representation it's often subtext only. Because of this we tend to interpret a lot of characters in our own completely valid way. If you're not into the idea of Piccolo being NB or Ace in the same context that a...

Re: The future of Kaioken Blue and Blue Evolution

Did they though? “Full Power” Super Saiyan wasn’t really a separate form. "Did they, though?" Yes, they did skip over SS2 and 3. Also, while FPSS wasnt a separate form, it was a distinct thing that the other characters noticed when Goku and Gohan emerged from the RoSaT and the amount of "ki" Goku w...

They also skipped over Super Saiyan 2 and 3 and we haven't really seen Full Power Super Saiyan for a very long time.

Re: Does Dragon Ball takes priority

Personally, I use whatever it is that I love (in this case it's Dragon Ball) as a way of inspiring myself toward accomplishing my real world goals. I took it a bit literally and went into martial arts, but you dont have to! You can apply the "I can overcome anything if I stay positive and keep at it...

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...

Fair enough. Has anyone here argued that old DB material should be edited? And I don't just mean this thread.

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 ...
