Re: Digest Edition Pre-Order

I'm starting to get excited for this! I might make this my first purchase of the Japanese manga.

Re: Is Dragon Ball the Star Wars of anime?

These being two of my favorite franchises, I've made this comparison more than once. Typically asking myself the question "How the hell does a franchise this big get such half-assed re-releases?" (in reference to Funi's season sets and the SW special editions) But I think a positive comparison can b...

It was Suno in the subtitles, and Sno (Snow?) in the dub.
Literally within the first few minutes of episode 35, she is called "Suno" pronounced like "Sue-No".
My mistake. I knew it was Suno in the subtitles so I assumed he just made a typo.

That's a fair point. It just seemed like such a waste. At least the most anticipated fight still happened, just not as expected.

Re: Like That the Tournaments Finished?

I never got more pissed off watching this series than during the 25th Tenkaichi Budokai. I was so excited to finally see another tournament after all this time, but just like that everyone leaves? I'm not saying the characters made the wrong choice, but I think Toriyama could've handled that better.

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Considering MSRP was $60, $75 isn't that bad. I can't see myself spending $300 on one box, though. At that point I'll probably end up buying a full set and then selling whichever ones I already have.

The only other Dragon Box that I regularly see at $60 is Box 5. The others seem to go for $100 at the lowest.

It was $60 USD. I figured I should grab it while I had the chance.

I just got my first Dragon Box!

It's not a huge deal compared to the other types of things in this thread, but I thought it was worth sharing. Too bad the others usually go for at least twice the price of this one.

Re: DB and DBZ: Parts vs Whole

I've always enjoyed the Dragon Ball portion of the story more than the Z portion. Don't get me wrong, I still love Dragon Ball Z, but insane fights and planet-destroying attacks aren't the reason I got into the franchise. I was exposed to the DB manga first by one of my friends, and I loved it for a...

When they do that, it's less marketable for sub fans buying their DVDs. I wouldn't want to watch it in Japanese if I'm not even watching the same animation.

Re: Refering to the Japanese version as a "dub"

(And if you want to get REALLY pedantic, a lot of anime gets recorded before the visuals are finished being animated... Dragon Ball included.) To be fair, most animation in general is done that way. It's probably a lot more common in other countries, when they animate the mouths to actually look li...

If I like it as much as I think I will, I'll read the manga, as well.

Re: Post your Resurrection F Theatre Experience

I went to the Paragon Theater in Newport News, VA. The movie was cropped to Cinemascope aspect ratio (what I like to call wider-screen), which got on my nerves even though it only hurt a few scenes. The crowd was great, too. I noticed some scenes got some "undeserved" reactions, though. For example,...
