Re: J-Stars Victory VS+ (Western Release) for PS3/Vita/PS4

Hmmm... The translation work on this game seems to be a bit wonky. I see stuff like "Gum-Gum Rapid Fire" and wonder... At least they use Son Goku! :lol: I really do like that some of the featured series have some of the respective sound effects from their anime counterparts, though! - Kenshiro has h...

Re: J-Stars Victory VS+ (Western Release) for PS3/Vita/PS4

Welp, seems like the Gamestop by my place will be only getting three copies of the book for their ten pre-orders. NB must not be making too many of 'em.

Ah well, the book didn't seem all that amazing anyways judging by other people's impressions.

Re: Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butouden (3DS)

Bandai-Namco have been bringing over a bunch of their titles overseas recently that one would think they never would (I mean, c'mon, we're getting J-Stars Victory VS!) so I can see this coming over.

I'm really happy to hear the news about a non-card-related DB game coming to the 3DS, though! :D

Re: Funi's original DVDs for the Z TV Specials

Huh, I never knew the 'remastered' version of the specials had alternate angles. But yeah, the cropping definitely kills any chance of me picking that particular release up.

Re: Funi's original DVDs for the Z TV Specials

Ah, I forgot that they have alternate angles! (Dear me, how many years has it been since Funi stopped using them?) That's a big plus for me despite the transition hiccups.

Thanks for the response regarding the picture quality, I'll definitely look into picking them up now!

Funi's original DVDs for the Z TV Specials

Heya, I'm looking to purchase the rest of the DB anime franchise (I only have the Dragon Boxes for Dragon Ball Z and the recent BD of Battle of Gods ) and I had a question regarding the quality of Funimation's original release of the Bardock and Trunks specials. How is the picture quality? I know th...

Re: VIZ 3-in-1 Editions Coming Summer 2013

Apologies for the late bump but I was curious... Since this is finally being released as one series did Viz redo the chapter titles? Like, did the numbering carry over to the Saiyan arc from the Piccolo Jr. arc?

Re: Post your Battle of Gods Theatre Experience

A good chunk of the audience also got all giddy when it was revealed that Videl was pregnant. Like, "Oooooh~!" :lol:

Surprisingly there was no reaction to Vegeta's outburst over Bulma getting slapped.

Re: When will you guys stop buying DBZ home releases?

As far as the original TV series for DBZ is concerned, I'm done. The Dragon Box is all I need for that. I still have to get the rest of the franchise, though. I've been waiting for Funimation to release Dragon Boxes for DB, GT and the movies. If they don't, I can look forward to getting the current ...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2013 Movie Thread: "Battle of Gods

Whew! I managed to get the day off to go see the movie at the AMC Showplace 16 in Rockford. :D

I think the last time I've seen an anime film in theaters was the limited release of Steamboy back in 2004.

Yeah, it took me years to track down that particular poster. Luckily I won it in an eBay auction awhile back. I also put my Jurassic Park 3D tickets in the frame. (Which is what I do with the other framed posters I own which had their movies re-released in theaters like Back to the Future and Raider...

Re: 'Cell' Design in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure?

Eh, that's true. It could be an homage. Araki has done it quite a bit with real-life model/celebrity photos. Hell, the guy even had a photoshoot with Clint Eastwood a few years back and recreated one of the pictures with Jotaro.

mikezilla2 wrote:what year were both of those pages published
The Dragon Ball page was published in April 1991 while the JoJo page was published around late 1991/early 1992.

So yeah, Araki got lazy and copied Toriyama's pose and framing. :lol:

Re: Will you buy the Majin Boo arc when it's released on BD/

As others have said, I'll buy it for the improved dub and completion.

I'll mostly likely wait for the bigger sets, though.

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Picked up Raging Blast used for $10 at the local Family Video. I contemplated picking up the $10 copy of DBZ: Kinect they had but decided against it since I have no way to play it.

As for Raging Blast... Good god is the camera terrible in this game!
