Re: As A FUNi Dub Fan, Has Z Kai Replaced Z for you?

I think I'm finally getting over the last remnants of my nostalgia for the original dub, after rewatching The Final Chapters again lately. I'm really starting to fully appreciate just how much the Funimation actors have improved over the years. And even though people always criticized TFC for not cu...

Re: Anyone else find there’s been a distinct lack of tension in the ToP?

U7 has a low mortal level, not a low BP. u7 are not the underdogs. ToP is basically u11vs u7 , if anyone expected more they clearly set themselves up for disappointment. The thing is...I feel like the whole point of introducing the multiverse concept in BoG was to make the heroes into underdogs aga...

Re: Super possibly losing its timeslot or going on hiatus in March?

I hope I won't be the only one feeling no love lost for this. Especially if the hiatus happens and becomes indefinite. Let's not forget: The first two arcs were remakes of the damn movies. The U7 v U6 arc was very underwhelming. The Zamasu Arc was Super's strongest arc, but it has plenty of problem...

Re: What is the point of Universal Survival arc?

Escalation. We saw one universe, and that was mostly similar to the one we knew, so now we see the characters we know be forced into a situation in which they have to fight multiple different personalities and unique fighters at once in a format where it can be both a tournament to test their skill...

Re: Is Piccolo Really Smart?

I don't know about him being tactically smart or having the intellect of that of a genius in combat, but he's probably one of the more level-headed characters and probably has the least amount of intellectual flaws. If you compare him to Goku and Vegeta for instance, he may not necessary be tactica...

Re: Majin Buu's relationship with the Kaioshins

I don't think there's any reason for Fat Buu to be viewed as a threat: he literally had his evil side purged from him. He is no more a threat than Kami was. However, I definitely take issue with the fact that none of the Kais care about what happened to the Dai Kaioshin and Buff Kai. They haven't ev...

Re: As A FUNi Dub Fan, Has Z Kai Replaced Z for you?

As it stands, they both contadict RoF, so neither has an advantage in that regard. RF came out a loooooooooong time after both so it's the one contradicting things. Not really my point. I'm not "blaming" Kai for the contradiction (although I do blame them for leaving in such a useless, boring fille...

Re: As A FUNi Dub Fan, Has Z Kai Replaced Z for you?

The Final Chapters botched so much in terms of editing, particularly the fact that they didn't edit out the scenes in Hell or even the reference to Goku falling off Snake Way. The snake way isn't an issue at all, even though we didn't see it happen. we're always told about things that happen off sc...

Re: As A FUNi Dub Fan, Has Z Kai Replaced Z for you?

For me, Kai 1.0 definitely replaces the first three arcs of DBZ. For the Final Chapters, though, I'm still conflicted. There's so much about the original Buu saga dub (and its American musical score) that I'm sentimental towards, and the fact that the Final Chapters botched so much in terms of editi...

Re: GT becoming canon possible avenues

I'd love it if they made a remake of GT that fit into the current timeline. The concepts in GT were way more interesting than what Super's been doing so far. Be nice if they got a second chance at being executed at least somewhat well.

Re: What is the purpose of Majin Buu's character?

I think Fat Buu was kept around solely due to his relationship with Mr. Satan. That is the entire reason why they had him split off from Evil Buu in the first place. I mean, just think about how much more streamlined it would have been if Fat Buu's anger had simply caused him to transform directly i...

Re: Why the dub for Z is inferior to Kai

Is this thread really necessary? I think we all know why the Kai dub is better. Better acting, better direction, better scripts...My only gripe is that they didn't recast Yamcha, Tenshinhan, Recoome, Master Roshi, Chi-Chi, 16, King Kai and the Ox-King. I'd hate it if they replaced Roshi's voice. Ac...

Re: Damn is Chris Ayres good.

Chris Ayres is the sole reason I bought and still watch the RoF movie and is the sole reason I have any interest in the Super version of RoF. I'll be devestated if he has to leave the role but mostly I hope he gets better.

Re: So it seems confirmed Cell and the other older villains no longer exist in Hell

*cough*... I'm fairly certain it's supposed to be exactly the other way round. I need a little help understanding what you mean. I meant it as "unless we have confirmation, we should act like they still happened". I reckon even Kai kept at least some of the scenes in question; it basically doesn't ...

Re: Does Goku wrecking Frieza in a spar next episode change the U7 power list?

I don't think tier lists even matter anymore, they're just too much in flux. Freeza could become stronger than Goku by training a few hours, then Gohan could become stronger than Frieza by training a few hours, then Vegeta could become stronger than Gohan by training a few hours, etc. They could be ...

The new Majin Vegeta scenes are definitely well done, but I think I still prefer the original dub in this case. Some of those old lines are just so iconic to me, accuracy be damned.

Re: Why does the anime overpower characters?

Yamcha and Tenshinhan weren't taking out the Cell Jr in any way. In fact, the funniest Yamcha gif ever is him getting his ass kicked by a Cell Jr, a gif that would make anyone not familiar with the series think Yamcha is hilariously pathetic. But Yamcha and Tien kicking a Cell Jr. should have been ...
