Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

Maybe the four years is in Freeza "5 minute" time. Or hell has a room of spirit and time effect.

Re: Dragonball Anime vs Manga

I like the manga best for the pacing, characterizations, and art; however, I have the anime's voice actors and music in mind when I read it. Masako Nozawa is a big reason why Goku is my favorite fictional character, so it's tough to choose! Freeza is my absolute favorite villain in the manga, but th...

Re: Best DB Movie

Oh! If we're talking about best fights, then I would definitely pick Dead Zone and World's Strongest. Although Battle of Gods is an overall better film, the fighting doesn't compare to the more intimate battles in those first two flicks. I really liked the fighting in BoG, but I liked a lot of movie...

Re: Best DB Movie

I agree with Bullza. Battle of Gods introduced some of the best antagonists in the series, good character and story developments, expanded the universe, solid character balance, great animation, and a fantastic change of pace. For the most part, all the other movies are really lame, watered-down ver...

Oh shoot! I didn't even see the title! It kind of reminds of me of "Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z." Hey, at least its not a spoiler title like some many of the episodes had!

Re: Saiyans or?

I'll take whatever Dragon Ball content I get as long as the stories are great! Goku and Vegeta are my favorite characters, but that doesn't mean that I don't want other characters to be developed more. One of my favorite episodes of Dragon Ball was where Ten tries to make reparations with the guy he...

Re: I've yet to meet someone in real life who's like us

I just got into the franchise a couple years ago after seeing that it had a high IMdB rating, so I was shocked that even the community was so huge online! Then again, I never paid attention to any fandom until I experienced Dragon Ball!

Re: Should Toriyama's word be taken as absolute truth?

I'm not sure if "absolute truth" is the term I'd use. If it contradicts something that he wrote, I take it with a grain of salt; otherwise, I accept it. I've found a lot of what he's said in interviews to be great! If it is something that he's adamant about, then I definitely accept it. I just don't...

Thanks for the translation. That banter with Goku and Vegeta is gold! It seems right in line with "Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!" which is exactly what I wanted!

Re: Resurrection F poll

I sure hope I'm able to! The Japanese vocal track is my preference, but I'll gladly watch the English dub if that's the only version I get to see in theaters. I just hope the showtimes are available for us late evening people. I really wanted to see Battle of Gods, but I wasn't available at those ea...

Nothing has changed about GT for me. If anything, I like it less since I'm finally getting really good Dragon Ball content with the new movies.

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Fukkatsu no F"

Just about everything created without his involvement has been mediocre to bad. That includes Episode of Bardock. Toriyama is the heart of DB. He's the one who understands the characters better then anyone else. I think you forgot Dragon Ball Minus, which had his involvement and it has been really ...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Fukkatsu no F"

I'm late to the game, but just wanted to say that I'm super stoked for the new movie. While Battle of Gods wasn't the greatest, I thought it was way better than the Boo arc. I love everything they've revealed other than some of the Freeza stuff, so I have faith that it will be good!

Re: Which of the 3 shows had the best animation?

While I now prefer the previous Dragon Ball arcs, the animation was a big reason why I probably preferred the Cell and Boo arcs originally. The Goku vs Majin Vegeta fight was so beautifully animated that I didn't care about the quality of writing. That's changed since I've read/watched the series so...

Re: Akira Toriyama influenced by Peanuts?

Wow! That is an interesting observation. It does seem pretty similar in style to the Peanuts.
When I first watched the series, I thought it was very reminiscent of Looney Tunes.

Re: On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate the series?

I give the Dragon Ball manga a 9/10. I think it's an incredible action/gag series, despite its many flaws. Personally, I've checked out so much anime and find most of it to be terrible. I don't understand the praise on this site for shows like Full Metal Alchemist and Ruroni Kenshin. They seem like ...
