Re: Why do English-speaking fans belittle the non-FUNimation dubs?

I’m a fan of the Funimation Dub, but I have to say, I also love the Ocean cast. I could honestly watch the show either way. Obviously the fact that the FUNi cast has a complete dub for 1-291 gives it more of a draw than the Ocean cast. But if I had the option, I’d absolutely watch the whole show wit...

Dragon Ball traditions?

So it’s Christmas Day and my sister and I plan on watching DBZ movie 05 tonight like we always do every year. Ever since probably ‘03 or ‘04 when we got a VHS copy of the movie from “Santa”. This got me wondering if anyone else has any sort of tradition revolving around Dragon Ball? Not necessarily ...

Re: Mistake in the site's Rumor Guide

Hmm, sort of doesn’t make sense for Piccolo to go train with North Kaio during the Namek arc then..

I mean, I know the whole North, West, etc. thing wasn’t written until much later, but still.

Re: Goku with Saiyan armor (Cell Saga): did you like it or not?

I always thought it looked awkward in the anime and manga, but for whatever reason, I thought the action figure I had as a kid of Super Saiyan Goku in Saiyan armor was one of the coolest looking figures.

Re: Manga UK releasing DBZ Movie & TV-Specials Collection (Blu-ray/DVD)

Does anyone have the Manga UK Movie + TV Specials collection on blu-ray? If so, can you verify it it’s region locked? I can’t find any pictures of the back of the package online. Just wanna know if it’d work on a Region A player.

Re: Orange brick covers

I would’ve gone with

Only change I would have made would have been Tao on the cover of Season Three, instead of Max Roshi

S1: Vegeta
S2: Bulma (weird I know)
S3: Final Form Frieza

S5: Perfect Cell
S6: SS2 Gohan

Re: Characters Where You're OK With Both Dub Casts?

I’ve been trying to find some original broadcast audio clips with Freeza for reference but honestly 2007 Linda Young!Freeza doesn’t sound any different than how I remember Freeza sounding on Toonami back in 1999 It might not even be that the voice is that different, but it sounds like in the 1999 d...

Re: Characters Where You're OK With Both Dub Casts?

Krillin is probably the only character where I really enjoy both voices. I couldn’t pick between Terry Klassen and Sonny Strait. There are a few other characters that I guess i’m sort of indifferent towards, in this situation. Like Raditz for example. Maybe it’s because his role is so light in the g...

Re: Is Watching the Movies Necessary?

Whenever I do a full watch-through of DB(Z), I tend to lean on the movies during the parts where the filler in the series is pretty unbearable, or the story is dragging and getting to be a little monotonous. Biggest examples are the Namek Saga (where I usually pause to watch the first 4 movies) and ...

Re: FUNimation and their use of the term "Season"

Someone mentioned how calling them “volumes” would’ve been more appropriate and I totally agree! It seems like Funi got a little wiser later on and started releasing Kai and Super in “Parts”. Releasing the OBs and Blu Rays as DBZ parts 1-9 woulda made more sense, IMO, but if they absolutely insisted...

Re: Manga UK releasing DBZ Movie & TV-Specials Collection (Blu-ray/DVD)

Man, i’d Really like to buy this, and get rid of the Funi steelbooks I have all the movies on. I’d save shelf space, plus i’d finally have all the movies on blu-ray. But there’s still no box art posted for this thing. I don’t wanna pre-order it without knowing what it looks like.

Re: Dub lines that you find interesting.

When Bulma calls Kame House to tell them about the remote to deactivate 17 and 18, and Yamcha tells Krillin not to accept the collect call charges. Bulma says she’ll only let them use the remote if Yamcha gives her a foot massage. What the hell, Bulma. There’s robots terrorizing the entire planet, y...

Re: Favourite Character introduced in the Original Dragon Ball

Probably Tien Shinhan. His development is a lot of fun to watch, from the first time you see him and Chaozu as villains, to eventually cheering him on as he tries to master the Evil Containment Wave to avenge the deaths of his friends.

Piccolo eventually becomes my favorite character in “Z” though!

Re: Just how much better are the Blu-rays than the Orange Bricks?

I made the jump from Orange Bricks to blu rays 3 or 4 years ago, and I like the blu rays way better. The cropping was much more of a hinderance on the OBs. I remember I sold my entire OB collection for $100 and put that towards the Blu Rays, which was totally worth it to me.

Re: Why was Super Saiyan 3 introduced?

He probably introduced it to show the results of Goku's training in otherworld as it'd be a bit anticlimactic for him to just have Ssj2 when Vegeta reached on earth without any special training. These are my thoughts exactly, there’s no way Goku was going to stop at Super Saiyan 2 now that he had a...

Re: Chris Sabat On the Big Green Dub

I can see Schemmel’s protectiveness of the role stemming from the fact that he was certainly more theatre-oriented than a lot of the other VAs. While many of them (like Sabat, Bergmeier, Strait..) were heavily involved in the technical side of things, (script-writing, engineering) Schemmel was the t...

I think it really depends on whether you are watching it by yourself or not.

I have way more fun sitting and watching it with people who hav...
