Having read the Jenner, Yu and Waley translations of the book, I'd say the Yu translation is the best, having the best English text and lots of footnotes :3

I order very regularly at YesAsia and you don't have to pay import tax (in the EU at least). They ship all their European orders bulk to Germany first (so it's in the EU) and send the orders from there to other European countries. As it's already inside the EU, I don't have to pay customs when it ar...

Cantonese with english subtitled automatically equals bootleg, just to let you know. True when concerning Dragon Ball DVD's. But it does not hold for all Hong Kong (Cantonese) (anime) releases. Um, I have no idea what youre talking about. Why on earth would Chinese releases come with English subs? ...

Nope, the spot the difference clip is from the gameshow IQ Sapuri, which features celebrities trying to solve riddles and stuff. There have also been clips for shows like One Piece, Chibi Maruko-chan and GeGeGe no Kitarou.

Anime is really not low rated in Europe, though it depends on where in Europe you live. Netherlands, yeah, anime has known better times here. But France... >.>

How could no one have named Shigeru Chiba yet?! :cry: This is Buggy the Clown(One Piece), Kuwabara(YYH), Megane(Urusei Yatsura), just to name a few. I adore his performance as Don Kanonji in Bleach too. XD I love Chiba as the narrator of Hokuto no Ken. His tension keeps rising as the series continu...

I don't think I could take Japanese classes because there aren't any in the city I live in (The Netherlands). Well, I could alway's go to Japan and learn it there :lol: Anyway. In the near future, if I have enough money, I could alway's buy the Dragon Box material. For now, I'll think about purchas...

I think you mean those arcade save-chipcards , which are used to save personal information (like rankings). That was also in the console port, in the form of those profile card (on which the attack-tree was saved).

Not if it's a Cardass game. You can only control the characters through cardass cards, which you have to swipe across a reader in the machine. There are quite a lot of these card-arcade games in Japan based on "normal" games (last year I saw card-arcades based on the Naruto Gekitou Ninja Taisen engi...

I can't beat Saibaman! (Airman remix)

Some might know the 'Airman ga taosenai' (I can't beat Airman) song, a fantastic remix of the Airman stage song of Megaman.

But it seems that Yamcha can't beat Saibaman either, and Raddits is having some trouble beating Kakarotto ;)

Probably Chinese medicinal patches. Don't know the precise name, may be tiger balm patches...

Wow, those scouters on Ebay are way to expensive! I bought two of them when in Japan (Yeah, Pikachu is wearing one of them) and while I can't seem to find my receipts right now, they were not even 1000yen, so that should be around 8 dollars ~_~

Actually, Hokuto no Ken/Fist of the North Star is still quite popular in Japan and depending on the demographic (the Pachinko-players XD) even more popular than Dragon Ball. And yes, there is a Hokuto no Ken MMORPG coming too ^_~
