Re: Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

I suspect this change is related to how Toei started pushing for Funimation's names in the subtitles earlier this year, which I suspect is part of some push from Toei to have consistent branding worldwide. I'm guessing the goal to ensure that Goku is Goku is Goku, no matter where you look, and they...

Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

Context since 2017 any overseas releases the spellings of Gokou changed to Goku however the Japanese version spellings always remained Gokou ... until now it seems! Last prize fair late August when the Maximatic Goku's were on display the II had Goku spelt as that but not "Gokou" like I: https://i.i...

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

Super Broly was awesome and the Zamasu arc is one of the most interesting DB storylines, even if it had some flaws (really, they dimension hop TWICE and get their asses kicked TWICE) and the fight choreography was mostly lackluster. I didn't really like BoG but you can't say it wasn't a fresh addit...

Re: Did Dragon Ball Get Lucky?-The Good Faith Version.

It's like saying is Dragon Ball a kids series. In some respects yes, but it is one of those rare stories that how it was crafted elevates it beyond that. It has extremely likeable characters that resonate with people of all ages, world building that captivates the imagination, and at the same time ...

Re: ss4 started trend of overdesigned fan fictiony forms

The word “edgy” seems to get used a lot to describe things that people don’t like. I wouldn’t describe SSJ4 as “edgy”, but I will agree that it’s probably not something Toriyama would’ve ever come up with. Still, I think SSJ3 is just as much at fault in leading to this once popular trend of overly ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Well, there was a time when Broly being able to go head up against fusion only generate laughs, sarcarstic comments, contempt for a certain medium and etc. Today it gets props and praise. Cool, huh? :roll: What is your actual problem? You can't seem to let people praising this film go. I think Brol...

Re: The future of Kaioken Blue and Blue Evolution

Dragon Ball Super Broly was written by Toriyama, while the anime only followed an outline by Toriyama. The Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken transformation was a TOEI thing, so it shouldn't be surprising that Toriyama didn't use a transformation he didn't come up with. Of course, Toriyama also didn't origi...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Just because Funimation give them to another company to sell doesn't mean it's ok to print more copies. They're not "printing more copies" of the original set though, they're releasing a localised version in another market. You have to enter a UK shipping address to even order this version. They ar...

The manga is so much the official continuity, that it took them 4 years to announce any merch (figures) to represent it :wave: Because the manga readers don't buy as many children's dolls? Merch is made based on predicted sales, not as a confirmation of canonness. Also most designs are identical so...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

They can't add what-if forms to Super Broly, because he's obviously going to be relevant in future DBS content. So for example they can't make him SSJ2 before the actual anime/manga does. You know, ppl have been saying that sort of thing for years, but if the past is anything to go by, it's painful...
