Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 1 - DB episodes 1-5

Some more edits i recall from the BLT/Ocean dub of episode 5 was some bits of Yamcha and Goku's battle, as Goku poking Yamcha in the eyes with his Jan-Ken-Pon/Rock-Paper-Scissors attack was cut off at the previous scene of them connecting fists and Goku getting struck repeatedly with the Roga Fu Fu ...

Re: Do you actually believe that we are currently in some second Dragon Ball golden age?

I wouldn't say that the franchise has really had a particular golden age, it's effectively a franchise that has gone in and out popularity in cycles both in Japan and here in the States. 1984-1995/1986-1997- Original manga and anime run/up-down popularity in Japan, intro in the U.S. 1998-2002- Quie...

Re: Do you actually believe that we are currently in some second Dragon Ball golden age?

I don't think Dragon Ball really ever had a particular "golden age"... If it did, that would really apply to the entire original run, which until recently, meant that the entirety of the Dragon Ball franchise was a golden age, which is just silly. Regardless, the new run so far has amounted to: An ...

Re: Do You Consider Path to Power more of a GT movie than DB?

Yeah I've never considered it to be a "Dragon Ball" film and I always dislike when it's referred to as "DB Movie 4" or whatever. It's the Anniversary movie in my mind. The GT elements are obvious but not enough for me to call it a GT film. I believe it stands alone apart from the other three OG DB ...

Re: Do You Consider Path to Power more of a GT movie than DB?

I just call all twenty movies Dragon Ball movies. I think piling them into different groups is kind of pointless and isn't even something that Toei Animation itself does in how they promote the films. It's like the thing with the manga, as in Japan it's always been released as Dragon Ball since the...

Re: Do You Consider Path to Power more of a GT movie than DB?

I consider it a 10th anniversary Dragon Ball film in GT drag. It’s got GT’s composer, GT’s art direction, Goku ends up in his GT gi, the GT opening is used for the movie’s end credits. It’s not a Dragon Ball film the same way Legend of Shen Long, Sleeping Princess in Devil’s Castle, and Mystical Ad...

Yeah I consider it a GT movie, due to the art style and the music, plus a bunch of things were redesigned too.
Especially being that there wasn't an actual GT movie proper during the show's run in 1996-1997 although there at least was the TV special.

Do You Consider Path to Power more of a GT movie than DB?

I know it technically is a Dragon Ball movie in most respects being yet another different retelling of the manga and anime's first story arc, namely with switching particular things around like including the (redesigned) Red Ribbon Army as the film's villains in place of the Pilaf gang though in ter...

Re: Buu Saga Filler?

This is all very sad, because what could have been an quite enjoyable experience if they followed the manga all the way through, it is as if Kai 1.0 and Buu Kai were made by different people and crew with VERY different purposes and intentions. It's sad Toei didn't give Kai the appropriate artistic...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I know it at least has the Japanese title cards compared to the triple feature. I figured it would also look better considering it was before they committed to doing the double features the way they did. Maybe it was left relatively untouched. Who knows, though considering that one came out prior t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

So I did it. I sold this severely botched release and got the Dragon Boxes instead..feels good man. In my current rewatch of Z subbed I’m going to watch the level sets then switch to the Dboxes. I just couldn’t stand the blurry lines and backgrounds..the fake grain is so distracting when the image ...

Re: Buu Saga Filler?

Not only it didn't happen in the manga, it also creates an inconsistency in the anime itself i. e., contradictory information. I know right, which makes that bit being left in all the more bizarre since it's referring to an event that happened in a filler episode from Z which was entirely removed l...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 1 - DB episodes 1-5

I consider it a retcon that's been executed so well because it's fairly early on in the story, and there's more than enough justified characterization behind it to make it work. It's easily the smoothest adjustment of/addition to a character's backstory in the franchise. The Pilaf Gang filler I con...
