Re: [adult swim]'s Big Dragon Ball Z Announcement/Giveaway

That’s what I suspect the announcement is going to be. Which would be cool as hell. I’d pay for cable just for that alone

Re: Samsung ends Blu-ray player production, impact on DB media?

I’ve noticed that the layman just doesn’t really care about the difference between a DVD and a Blu Ray. There’s a ton of us that love and support the format, but I can’t tell you how many people I know that still buy new movies on DVD because it’s cheaper and they just don’t see enough of a differen...

Re: Geekdom says remasters coming

Oh yeah, they definitely still aired Ocean stuff on Toonami in the US. I distinctly remember, because I moved to Texas in May 2003, the Buu saga had just finished up, and they started back over with Raditz.

Re: How much have you spent on the franchise?

Damn, over the years I collected every single Uncut VHS volume, the orange bricks, Blu Ray season sets, Blue Bricks, Green Bricks, Double Feature steelbooks, roughly 10 of the video games, 10-15 Dragon Ball T-shirts, and a handful of action figures. I’m gonna guess somewhere in the realm of $4000

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It’d be killer if they put out all 291 episodes in one package, with some really badass box art. I’m just tired of constantly collecting individual volumes of DBZ, especially when said volumes get discontinued halfway through

Re: Toei Animation celebrates 30 years of DragonBall Z with new licensing deals, products and events!

Definitely interested in what the home video release(s) will be. But the thing that caught my eye was the Adult Swim/Toonami announcement. I wonder if they’ll put Kai back in the rotation and just start from the beginning. Or better yet, original Z. I would say original Dragon Ball, but I feel like ...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

Once upon a time, when I was really little, I was sitting in my family room, watching Dragon Ball on Cartoon Network while my parents had a bunch of people over. It must’ve been a birthday or something.. Anyway, one of our guests (a dude who was probably in his early 20s) saw what I was watching and...

Re: Why did Funimation redub Maron’s voice actress for the remastered sets

This is why I wish there could be a Rock the Dragon follow up, where we get the 99/00 Toonami broadcast versions of the Freeza through Cell arcs. Of course, the amount of people who would be interested in such a release is so small, it’ll never happen.

Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

In grade school, someone tried to convince me that Androids #1-15 made cameos throughout Dragon Ball and early Z. He said that Alligator sunbathing on Roshi’s Island was one of them. He said Arale was one of them.

Re: Funi's DB/DBGT video releases vs. DBZ's

This is one of my biggest woes as well. I mean, aesthetically, the Blue, Orange and Green bricks line up so nicely on a shelf together. If only the contents of the bricks were all consistent with one another.

Re: "Dragon Ball Game Project Z Action RPG" Announced.

Seriously? No Switch?

It looks really cool, especially the shots of Goku walking past Kame House and Capsule Corp. I know there was a lot of work put into a potential “Legacy of Goku 4” by Webfoot a few years ago. I wonder if that led to this in any way shape or form.

Re: Why Dragon Ball gets such major attention?

There’s just something about it... Chris Sabat once said in an interview that he thought Dragon Ball has some sort of bizarre “visual drug” in it that made it so addicting. As silly as that sounds, I totally get what he’s saying. And that’s not to discredit the other anime out there.

The other has a few episodes from the DBZ “Uncut” run in 2005. I think it has a bunch of the episodes startin...

Re: Do you still care about the end of Z?

I would be pretty annoyed if the EoZ got retconned. However brief it is, it’s a part of the original run. So to dispute it would be sacrilege, in my opinion.

My opinion of Dragon Ball and the sexual humor within is 100% unchanged. There’s an audience for everything, folks, that’s just the way it is. Some people, myself included, think the Roshi antics are downright hilarious. Does that make me a bad person? Look up GG Allin, for cryin’ our cupcakes. The ...

Re: Would you say that Dragon Ball in the west is more “mainstream” now than it ever was in the past?

It’s definitely more mainstream now than it was back in the early ‘00s. Back when it was first airing on Toonami, it had a huge following, no doubt, but you didn’t see everyone and their brother walking around in Goku T-shirts. Nowadays, Dragon Ball’s popularity is definitely stretched by the amount...
