Re: Re-watching the entire anime, do you get bored?

I think the fact that as I’m rewatching the series (I’m on Gotenks vs Boo right now) and already thinking about how I’m going to rewatch it again NEXT time is a testament to the entertainment value of the anime. I think next time I’m gonna bust out my Funi Singles and rewatch Z in it’s U.S. broadcas...

Re: A potential 4K release of DBZ...

If a 4K release were to happen, I’d base my purchase decision on other criteria, not the fact that it’s 4K. First of all, it would obviosuly have to be 4:3, uncropped. The fact that we don’t have a definitive uncut U.S. release in that aspect ratio is ridiculous. Second, I would want the same option...

Re: How was it watching a Dragonball series as the episodes aired?

Watching DBZ on Toonami is one of my favorite memories from growing up. The fact that it was a serial hooked me from the beginning! I had never seen a cartoon that picked up where the last episode left off. Anyway, the constant re-runs of batches of episodes didn’t bother me nearly as much as it see...

Re: Dragon Ball's original ending is dark for a gag manga

Man, this kind of blew my mind. I never really thought of it in the sense that the timeline in History of Trunks is really the “real” timeline for lack of a better term. Everything that happens in the main timeline post-Trunks is the result of Trunks tampering with time itself, therefore the main ti...

Re: Re-watching the entire anime, do you get bored?

I’ve been on another watch-through (DB/Z/GT) since about November, and I’m on the episode where Buu beats the holy Hell out of Dabura. I’d say the only times I got bored were during the Pirate Cave crap, and the latter half of the Frieza fight, post-Super Saiyan transformation. Even the afterlife to...

Re: The Manga is always way better than the anime

I’m sure a ton of people on here are gonna agree that the Manga is better, but I definitely prefer the anime, and my reason is that I’m really lazy. When I get home from working, I don’t wanna read or play a video game. I’d much rather sit on my ass and watch a story unfold on the TV.

Re: What's worse: 5 minutes of Freeza or 48 minutes of TOP?

The pacing in the anime for Namek’s “final five minutes” is terrible. Had the anime never existed, and all we had was the manga to go off of, the universal joke about this part of the story would never have happened. The 48 minutes in the TOP dragging out for 50 episodes is totally justified because...

Re: Did FUNimation borrow the idea of cropping Dragon Ball by TOEI?

All I know is, the cropping has never bothered me on the movies like it does on the episodes. I own all of the “Double Feature” releases (except movies 1/2) and have always thought they looked fine. Does anyone have anything to say about the Double Features on Blu-Ray? Specifically in comparison to ...

Re: DBZ Blu-ray Orange Bricks are here to stay - "This is truly the best possible way to watch Dragon Ball Z"

Allright guys, quick question, though I'm not sure it might be related to this. Is the Blu Ray complete series set on amazon a limited time item or is it here to stay? I wish I could own the Dragon boxes but I don't have $500+ to spend. I'd rather be able to afford mediocre quality and actually off...

Re: Best filler fight?

Gohan, Krillin and Piccolo vs. Garlic Jr is probably my favorite filler fight. I know it’s not technically filler, but the extra time they spent on Piccolo vs Frieza Form 2 is also really enjoyable. That fight isn’t done justice in the manga

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I just purchased the first two volumes of Dragon Ball Super. Not too big of a fan of the anime except for some of the slice-of-life filler so I'm hoping the manga changes my mind about modern DB's handling. I’m in the same boat. Just waiting for DB Super manga to be released in it’s entirety in the...

Re: Great Ape Transformation Use

I wonder if Oozaru Trunks would've been purple, or at least a more purplish-hued version of black/brown than the standard Oozaru. It makes sense that Saiyans with brown or black hair would end up as brown/black Oozaru since all the pure-blooded Saiyans have dark hair like that anyway, but it'd look...

Good point, but I'd find it strange that those tails didn't randomly grow back like it did for Goku and Gohan. You have a point there as well. It makes sense that Goku’s and Vegeta’s tails never grow back in their adulthood. But children, as we see with Kid Goku and Gohan like you said, should be a...

I’ve never really thought of it, but because I love the return of the Tenkai’chi Budokai in the Boo arc, I feel like I would have also appreciated the return of the Oozaru, had it occurred. If anything, I definitely agree that Trunks and Goten should’ve had tails. Who’s to say they didn’t though? Ma...

Re: A collection of screenshots for every 3D DBZ game. Which one has the best graphics?

I’ve always really liked the graphics in Budokai 2, despite hating everything else about the game. I just feel like they differentiated between the different Super Saiyan forms better than any other game. For example, in Budokai 1, the difference between Super Trunks and Super Trunks 2 is damn near ...
