Re: Watched Dragon Ball Z as a kid - interested in rewatching the series. What series/versions/releases should I pick/sk

What is the recommended watch order? Dragon Ball> Dragon Ball Z or Kai> Dragon Ball GT or Super Is everything worthwhile? Since you prefer English dubs.... original Dragon Ball is alright. The voice acting aint great sometimes serviceable, often times wretched but not..unwatchable. The series itsel...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 14 - DB episodes 61-65 (CURRENT WEEK)

I guess the manga was already at the Baba storyline by now?... I always forget that the manga was still reasonably ahead at this point. As I recall Legend of Shen Long had premiere just right before Goku summoned Shen Long in the manga at the end of the Baba arc so by this point they would have bee...

Re: The End of the Blue Bricks?

It's easily possible that COVID-19 meant that Funi decided to not prioritize the production of one of their low-sellers, even if it is in the Dragon Ball family. They're all out of stock now. You could be right, but if Spain was going to be "the first" country to release DB on Blu-Ray, hopefully it...

Re: The End of the Blue Bricks?

Hopefully they upgrade to Blue Ray for original Dragon Ball or something. I'm tired of the 90 million rereleases of DBZ especially since Funimation keeps using the "watch Dragon Ball Z the way it was meant to be seen!!!" bit over and over and over....and over.

Geneon USA [in association with FUNimation Entertainment ] ( Ocean Productions at Ocean Studios ) - US - 1997~1998 (Movies: 1~3) Wasn't just the USA; also aired in Canada, and was released on home video in Australia (possibly aired there too, I'm not sure).

https://imissbionix.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/fn01204.jpg It being called the "Original Broadcast" gives Robo some cred but it obviously it was changed to Toonami wich explanes the eyecatches NOT being from Toonami and Tree of Might NOT being episodic.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

It would have been incredible if they'd included the full edited OG Funi dub too, but to the masses there isn't enough to differentiate that from the remastered dub, which isn't that different to it from Trunks onward. I dunno I feel like "Dragon Ball Z" as you saw it on Toonami would have sold to ...

Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

I’ve only seen Evolution as I have never watched the Avatar cartoon, am not inclined to watch it and have little reason to watch a movie adaptation that looks horrible on its own merits. I will say, even though Dragon Ball Evolution is a terrible terrible film and a horrid adaptation there were idea...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

The censored Z movies 1 and 2 was at least because they were “trying” to base it off the Toonami airings same reason they used the movie version of the tv cut of Tree of Might instead of the uncut Pioneer version (of course they also used the original version of episodes 1-3 and not the safer re-ai...

and they don't particularly care about the older Ocean dubs at all They’ve gone out of their way to wipe out their stuff with the Ocean dub so not surprising. I think Funimation is just fine if people assumed it was always their in-house dub. They were very careful to refer to the Rock the Dragon s...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

Maybe... Maybe... Hard, hard maybe... Maybe it's worth asking Funimation about it. If they can acquire it (and maybe the Blue Water or Westwood DB, Z, GT content), they could use it as yet another excuse to re-re-re-release the series and make another buck. Physical media or streaming, whichever. A...

Re: Funi's Kai dub and accuracy

I'll be honest about it -- I felt like a lot of the lines in Kai were closely related to the Z dub. Yes, things were changed, but all in all, the lines oftentimes felt familiar. Made me wonder how accurate the dub really was and if the Z dub was really as inaccurate as believed. One day -- hopefull...

Dr. Willow was a nice proto Gero (I wonder if he was the inspiration for Gero?) You can’t beat a sunglasses wearing vampire named Lucifer with Wolverine hair.

Granted what they did with Blue Travelers wasn't as bad as what they did with a Burning Passion, but Nadolny's Goky endless chatter clashed horribly with the nice sentimental somber and soothing music. But at least you could hear the song most of the time. IMO The Blue Travelers was worse from a st...

I think the arc as a whole would've been a lot better if it skipped the first half and just started here (which is what I do). I don't. Not only do I enjoy most of the Red Ribbon Army arc (the pirate cave part being the only part I don't care for and even then it's most of the Z levels of horrendou...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

Dragonball was written for a young audience so I think it was meant to be a fairly simple. There could be some moments that can be considered cynical but not to the degree some fans argue since a lot of it would likely go unnoticed by the intended audience. It's a story about a martial artists who ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 14 - DB episodes 61-65 (CURRENT WEEK)

I wonder if Toei just really wanted to push Chi Chi as Goku's "girlfriend" not that they forced it on Toriyama or anything Very possibly. Definitely sounds like a Toei thing to do. They definitely played up Chi Chi and Goku's relationship as more genuine than the manga. Not to the extent of Funimat...
