Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The tiger mom trait pretty much disappeared in the Buu arc.

Re: Movie Tournament: Rounds 3-10

I was originally going to do 2 rounds per topic, but that would've taken a bit too long, so I'm going to speed things up. Rounds 1 and 2 are still open for votes if anyone's still interested: Round 1 : Mystical Adventure VS Resurrection F. Round 2 : Battle of Gods VS Wrath of the Dragon. Round 3 : ...

Do y'all just like, not read the piracy rules or something? Goddamn.
Acknowledging a long since defunct site used to exist =/= linking to or referring to still running piracy sites

Robo even referred to him on how to get the dub he was looking for legally.

Re: What English Dub Did the Site watchdbz.tv Use for Dragonball Z?

I remember the website from years back and it was definitely the old 276 episode dub with the Vancouver cast providing the voices for the first 53 episodes and the Texas cast for the rest.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

As bad as the old Z dub is, it's very much a product of it's time when the FUNi cast were at their most amateur and inexperienced Sure it was a product of “a replacement cast that had no business replacing the prior cast badly pretending they were old cast” that stuff was garbage back in 1999.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The remastered dub serves no one and Funimation are shooting themselves in the foot trying to sell it as the dub seen on Toonami. The inconsistency of going from the redub of Seasons 1 and 2 to a significantly redubbed season 3, and then later seasons with gradually less redubbing as it goes on mak...

Wow this thread blowed up! Thanks for all the feedback, really appreciate it, though some contrasting opinions.

Kid Buu, I can at least understand.
I can't. Nothing about Buu warrants him being called "kid".
He’s diminutive and temperamental. Also it’s somewhat useful when needing to distinguish him from Fat Buu/Skinny Buu/Super Buu.

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I dont mind people using the Japanese terms, but when you have people on here using "Supa Saiyajin Dai San Dankai" for Grade 3/USSJ Trunks, it looks fucking ridiculous and in a normal conversation nobody would take you seriously. Well, bear in mind that not every country speaks English and/or has a...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Do you feel the same way about “Bulma” instead of “Blooma” or “Bloomer” since that is her name after all. It’s a dub change that most likely served the same purpose as Bra to Bulla yet Bloomers are a helluva lot less sexy than even the most basic freakin sports bra. No because she was always known ...

Re: Movie Tournament: Rounds 1 and 2

Round 1: Resurrection F felt more like a movie. Also Mystical Adventure kind of falls apart when Goku gets Dodopa’s to Korin tower... Round 2: Battle of Gods. An entertaining movie that marries early Dragon Ball gag series roots to the more high stake cosmic battles associated with the latter half (...

If you've never seen Avatar: The Last Airbender then you are missing out. I recommend you sit down and watch it because it's definitely a special piece of art. I feel like I’m not missing out and I get the feeling the people who consider Last Airbender to be must see tv are the same people who cons...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Here's a side question: shouldn't Bra have been translated as a pun of Pull-up instead of Bulla? Edit: damn it, the format of spoilers is too close to the text. Funimation: We can’t keep her name as Bra. 12-year old boys might do an internet search and discover that women wear bras. Hmmmm Bulma.......

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 15 - DB episodes 66-70 (CURRENT WEEK)

Son Goku’s storming the base and taking the Red Ribbon army down single handed was one of the most exciting moments in Dragon Ball (though Path to Power’s is even better with the much nicer animation) I liked what the anime did with Colonel Violet. Obviously she’s still superfluous and her extended ...

I don't buy that. He's a few hundred yards from Freeza's ship which is in orbit around Vegeta. And the Namek Arc implies that Freeza's ability to survive in the vacuum of space is a rare ability. And what about Goku? Do you buy him going to the Moon to leave Carrot there? It was a gag you weren’t s...
