Re: Does Dragon Ball takes priority

It’s never taken priority over anything important for me. My obsession with DB is definitely recognized by my peers though. In fact, i’ve been lucky enough to shoehorn Dragon Ball into my relationships a couple of times. A girl I dated when I was 18 or 19 knew I was really into it and she got curiou...

His third form is seen so briefly, so I think, by proxy, that’s the one that I’m most interested in.

Re: Should King Piccolo be recognized as one of classic Dragon Ball’s main villains alongside Freeza, Cell, and Majin Bo

This has always been one of my biggest woes about the Dragon Ball/DBZ split. I always wished (out of the plethora of Budokai games that game out during the ‘00s) that at least one of them had included Dragon Ball in their story mode, specifically the Piccolo arc.

Okay, I found it. I had to bust out the singles. It’s while Kuririn and Gohan are fighting Goku’s body. Vegeta says “Goku” while thinking to himself

Re: Should Vegeta ever transition into saying Goku instead of Kakarot?

Didn’t Vegeta refer to him as Goku really early on in the Funi Dub? I think it was after he ditches Goku, and heads back to Freeza’s ship. Anyway, I just remember it being awkward as hell, especially since I was hearing Sabat’s voice for the first time, and on top of it, he wasn’t saying “Kakarot” a...

Re: Popularity of Cell in the West compared to Japan

I’m not sure if it’s like this for anyone else, but I remember the Cell Saga as being the pinnacle of DBZ’s popularity in the U.S. It seemed like that was when I started to overhear people in school talking about DBZ all the time. It definitely continued through the Buu saga, but it just seemed like...

I’ve always liked the term “Earth’s Special Forces”. To list every member would take forever, as it’s always changing. I’m my opinion, the members are anyone who is ready and willing to put their lives on the line when disaster strikes, no matter how much or how little they actually contribute in th...

Re: Does Dragon Ball have the largest, least toxic, fandom in existence of fictional franchises?

It’s hard to say if it’s the least toxic. I’ve definitely met nothing but kind, outgoing people at the theatre showings of these new movies (since Battle of Gods). On the contrary, i’ve seen a lot of negativity on these forums. Planning on going to Kameha-Con this year, I guess i’ll have to see what...

Dragon Ball: Blue Bricks, for sure. They’re just so convenient. I’m sure they’re far from perfect in the eyes of the super fans, but I don’t have any issues with the picture/colors. DBZ: Blu-Ray Seasons. This was a super tough choice, because I absolutely love my Singles collection. However, I have ...

Re: What is the best single Volume of Dragon Ball?

I’m honestly going to say 18. I don’t know why, but when I was first collecting the VIZ volumes years ago, Volume 18 (Or DBZ volume 2 as I knew it) really grabbed my attention. It was at that point that I really couldn’t wait until I got the next volume. It started to eat at me

If anything, I feel like the movies work really well with the original score. The episodes are 50/50 in my opinion. It’s great at times, awkward during others.

Re: Preferred Character of each series?

Dang, a couple of these are tough... but I’d have to say Dragon Ball: Goku. No doubt about it. His naïveté is at it’s best in this series. Without Goku’s sort of “Know no evil” mentality, some of the show’s funniest moments and most emotional moments wouldn’t have happened. Dragon Ball Z: Piccolo. N...

Re: Why do so many Z fans refuse to watch the original Dragon Ball?

I’m one of those who saw the Toonami airing of ‘Z’ before anything else. I started watching sometime in late ‘99 during the Freeza arc. So two or three years later when the original Dragon Ball was being advertised on Cartoon Network, I was actually super excited. I watched as much as I could during...

Re: Was Gohan meant to be perceived as a pedophile?

I’ve always been curious about this as well. I’ve always wondered if it was Gohan who suggested Goku use his crotch as a “pillow” or if that was something Goku just decided to do as a young child. Either way, that aspect of the Goku/Gohan relationship has always been weird as hell to me.

Yes, Piccolo and Kuririn both have pink pupils until their charade is over and they magically decide to have black pupils again. I was always irritated by that inconsistency.

Re: Does the DB Fanbase Actually Despise the Garlic Jr. arc?

I personally like the Garlic Jr. arc. Dead Zone is still my absolute favorite movie, so it was cool to see it get followed up in the anime. I also love the trifecta of Piccolo, Kuririn and Gohan here. It’s not without it’s flaws though, I can certainly admit that. The absence of Tenshinhan and Chaoz...

So, I really don’t think watching the Ocean dub for the first 53 episodes then switching to Funimation to fill in the gaps of what the Ocean Group never dubbed and then switching back to Ocean from episode 108 onward is that bad of an alternative. It’s an inconsistent product regardless. I feel lik...
