He's probably talking about how the background music never stops, which is especially annoying in scenes that are trying to build tension. It just ruins the whole scene.

Re: Bruce Faulconer returning to compose the score for DBS?

No, doubt he'll return to the series at this point

Geekdom101 made a video about Bruce Faulconer and his ties with Funimation a while back. Should be able to get a better answer from it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlLI02pvQIU

Re: Should they stop making English version of the songs for the international audience?

Hinorobu Kageyama's English songs sound pretty clear to me, I've never needed lyrics to know what he's saying. By "Broken English", I really just mean that they're not grammatically correct.

Re: Should they stop making English version of the songs for the international audience?

I like having the English versions done by the original singers (though, yeah, Engrish is probably the better name lol). Sure, they're in really broken English, but that gives them some charm. Plus I also think that it allows them to keep the song's original tone, which isn't done well by different ...

Re: Lack of females characters in Dragon Ball

Just wanna point out that a bunch of characters in the male lists barely even count as real characters. What I mean is that a bunch of those are just generic henchmen or soliders. Some of these (like, say, Appule) don't really have any impact on the main story. I think that while there aren't a lot ...

Looked them up on ebay out of curiosity. They're listed at ~$25-30 (with shipping). Eh, not too bad considering they're imports.

I have the full set and they're awesome! only downside it I wish they were hard cover like the delux Akira set but the price per volume was a steal! one downside is they used the newer ending and Gohans age is the tankobon revised and sometimes the extra coloring is not 100% accurate to the origina...

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

So, today I finally learned about the Dragon Ball Digest Edition release (aka the Soshuhen release). These are pretty much the original chapters as they appeared in the series' original Weekly Shonen Jump run. There's even a page about them in the main site: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/manga/digest/ H...

Re: Toei Animation celebrates 30 years of DragonBall Z with new licensing deals, products and events!

Really hope we get an updated Dragon Box release (on Blu-ray). The DVDs are ridiculously expensive on the secondary market, and they're only in standard definition.

Re: Does Sean Schemmel smoke?

My guess is that his voice has just been changing over the years as he's gotten older (after all, it's been like 20 years since he started). And I guess all the screaming and shouting that he does for Goku hasn't been too kind to his throat.

Re: Goku and Chichi is the worst couple of the franchise?

I always felt like their relationship does work (though just barely). We don't really see them together very often in the manga, but in the few moments they do have there, they seem to get along just fine and look like an ordinary family. First thing that comes to mind is chapter 392 where while wai...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I wouldn't mind having Raditz in the game, but I can't see him being in it. Part of FighterZ's appeal (at least to me) is seeing moves from the manga/anime being faithfully recreated. Other Dragon Ball games have done it, but none quite like FighterZ with its stunning visuals. It's so exciting to se...

Re: Will Toriyama revisit the Consequences of overuse?

I think what the Elder Kai means when he says the Dragon Balls shouldn't be overused is that if they use them too much, they'll become too reliant on them to solve all of their problems, not necessarily that the Dragon Balls themselves will cause trouble. That and the Dragon Balls could just as easi...

Maybe he's surprised he knows its name. You can see the transformation and not know about Super Saiyans. Ah, you're right. Went back quickly to double check to make sure it wasn't called by name. My bad. But on another note, I now noticed that when they're all eating in Chapter 437, Krillin asks "W...

Re: Do you still think Gohan should've been the main character?

I haven't really read anything here (because there's too many posts, not enough time), but I'll throw in my 2-cents anyway (mostly based on memory, no sources) When Gohan became the main character, it looked like Toriyama wanted to make it about his adventures as the Great Saiyaman (likely as a nod ...
