Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

There seems to be some sorta hypocrisy here, as they fired Vic Mignogna without a solid proof, yet jokes that might seem offensive to some is considered ok... like this is obviously concern trolling but what would the hypocrisy even be here ? like normally when vic defenders bring up the "hypocrisy...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

I think that it's quite naive to assume that fraternity humour doesn't exist behind closed-doors, and that sometimes, people say and satirise certain things that are inherently inappropriate for a public airing, but in doing so are aware that their behaviour is not aimed at anyone, nor designed to c...

Re: Who hates Goku the most?

Who hates Goku? Nobody. Well, so long as he is given time to change their heart (little by little). That's how the Shonen hero trope works, right? His carefree, earnest nature wins over everyone in the end. A lot of people are saying Freeza - but let's just wait and see how this current arc of Super...

I know that Freeza did mental-training in Hell and all, but I still think Hit is much stronger than him. I mean, can you imagine Freeza managing to challenge Jiren as Hit did? I'm not so sure.

Re: Top 10 out of 80 ToP fighters

Here goes: 1) Jiren - This one's easy - he's the current 'wall' to surpass. 2) Ultra Instinct 'The Omen' Goku - He's the only one who has given Jiren any real hassle so far. 3) Kefla - Even Broli Kale gave Super Saiyan Blue Goku a good beating, and this is the only fighter apart from Jiren to awaken...

Re: What's Your Occupation?

I'm a Learning Technologist at a Russell Group University. Specifcally by job-title I'm the 'Lecture Capture Coordinator', which essentially means that I oversee and service-manage the University's timetabled lecture recording operation.

Oh, and by night, I'm Batman.

Re: Are there people that actually hate the Vegeta's Hells Bells music?

Or a re-contextualised (Barry Watson era Funimation preferred 're-versioned', I believe) product for a new market. Frankly, I think that's giving FUNimation's product far too much credit. Essentially, you're entrusting borderline amateur Americans with no real context for the series (as they've oft...

When you strip out part of that and plop in an entirely different culture's musical aesthetic from after its creation, you wind up with a disjointed product out of time with no identity of its own.

Re: FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball Super Officially Confirmed

No more Blue Popo, please. I think that level of censorship is acceptable for pre-watershed broadcast. Whether intended or not, the likeness may carry an offensive racial connotation when viewed by Western audiences. We know that Popo is a genie, the casual everyman probably doesn't. https://en.wik...

Which was lovely, but sort of hard to understand given that it's the only episode they've tweaked in two whole boxes - and it was by no means the worst to begin with.

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

I've got a reaaaaally cynical feeling that the more recent stuff from Super (Universe 6, Goku Black) will probably be tacked on as paid-for DLC content to maintain a longer interest cycle in after release. I imagine that we'll probably get a proper RoF arc, though. The DLC for that in Xenoverse was ...

So does anybody know what caused Toei to finally end GT where it was? Did the Japanese fanbase not take to it and were sales/ratings down? I would love an answer from someone knowledgeable like Kanzenshuu staff on this. I'd imagine it was a mix of both, but was there a big backlash and if so, when ...

Does anyone know how much money is funnelled from BN's profits to Toei animation/production budget? I can say with confidence that it's not proportional: as in, if the Dragonball merchandise license pulls in more money than expected for Bandai Namco, then there isn't going to be a knock-on effect o...

I've been over how terrible Piccolo's treatment was in that episode several time, so I'd rather not just repeat myself about how that's BS.

Yeah. He fought one round and lost. Good job bro. You're SOOO useful. -_- Besides, I expected him to be there. The thing is I actually expected him to win one instead of losing immediately. Well, it's much implied that he would have won due to his smarts, not his power, if not for the fact that Fro...
