Re: How will they fix the writing problem that Super had?

If I'm being honest, the Tournament of Power arc really bored me 'cause it lasted way too long and I'd have preferred something more traditional like an adventure with mystery... Mystical Adventure . :P It didn't help that Jiren to me looked so bland and uninteresting and there was like a 3rd lookal...

Re: Things that grind your gears

Yeah they’re up there with Gokus a bad dad and the Yamcha memes in how bad they are Yeah.. I don't really get into that stuff. Toriyama and TOEI write how the characters are supposed to act so a bit silly to say "he should be like this" or "he should be like that". I do find live-action shows more ...

Re: DBZ Kai Blu-Ray vs. DBZ Blu-Ray (FUNi)

I haven't actually heard the Ocean Dub. Perhaps I should check it out. Check out the Pioneer DVDs of Movies 1-3 and then the 1-53 episodes if you have time. Ocean Dub did an amazing job on the first three movies and it's a shame they weren't given the rest to dub. How I'd love to watch 4-13 movies ...

People can post comments on Crunchyroll? Didn't know that, I just watch the videos and move on.

But yeah, those TFS quotes are getting as bad as Over 9000 (never understood why it's funny).

Re: Questions for people who grew up with the Westwood dub

I just didn't understand the logic of having all these different dubs. One dub for each country, that's the idea. English-speaking countries have pretty much all gotten the same dub by FUNimation unfortunately but if they were to follow how non-English speaking countries do, then each of those coun...

Re: Would it be a better idea to replace Nozawa before she passes away?

Definitely! If Masako perished midway of a series it would then make for an awkward transition with a different VA so it's better that they just replace her while she's still alive so everything stays consistent with the cast from start to end. I love Masako's Gokû and no one will ever replace the o...

Re: Super has done a lot of things better than DBZ

Funny how some people always compare Super with GT because they think Z was a masterpiece or because they are blind of nostalgia 1. Expanded Universes 2. More In-Depth Fighting Strategy 3. Bigger stakes 4. Black Goku & Zamasu not the typical Z villains 5. Callbacks to Dragonball 6. a lot more funny...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Question: Is the Ocean Dub Kai having the series titled as 'Dragon Ball Kai' or 'Dragon Ball Z Kai' like most international dubs have used?

How has One Piece managed to have over 800 episodes in a single series?

Popularity, I guess. For a Japanese animated series that's nothing too impressive since Doraemon, Crayon Shin-chan and others have surpassed the 1000 episodes mark but when you compare it to Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball had to go through five series to reach 800 episodes. One Piece - 829 eps. (Ongoing) ...

Re: GeGeGe no Kitaro and Masako Nozawa

There've been multiple iterations of Kitaro where Nozawa didn't voice him, so it's not without precedent. Precisely so. Kitarou 2007 was voiced by Takayama. I'm a bit surprised folks in the West don't really seem to know too much about Kitarou and were pissed Kitarou is replacing Dragon Ball Super....

Re: GeGeGe no Kitaro and Masako Nozawa

Masako Nozawa was the original voice of Kitaro, then she got replaced and now she is back but she does another character?! Why? Well, besides being in her 80's she's probably already got too much on her plate so in the event something tragic happens, Kitarou won't have a VA replacement as the serie...

This isn't true at all. Dr. Slump made Toriyama one of the richest people in Japan . He was already a household name before Dragon Ball ever existed. People in the west not knowing it is not the same as "it was a flop" and it's 100% incorrect/disingenuous to frame it that way. I apologize for that,...

They were cancelled. But a few have technical problems with it due to lost details (where they can be seen on the Dragon Box) but that never really bothered me as they look fantastic overall.

Like in the same vein as FUNimation Now, CBC TV, Cartoon Network, The CW, FOX, Crunchyroll, etc which offer some or a lot of series free to watch without a subscription. I'd be curious in knowing so I'd use it on my Android tablet (with a VPN, of course). TOEI does have a YouTube channel which they'...
