Re: DB/Z on VHS Nostalgia

I have a good chunk of Dragon Ball GT's original American run recorded on VHS, but they're in Mexico lol. Maybe I'll go pick them up some time

Didn't really record much of Z though. I'd just borrow my cousin's official tapes for that

Re: Do you still care about the end of Z?

Yeah, I think it should still be acknowledged. It's a part of the original story, so I'd hate to see them remove it from continuity.

That being said, I think they should go beyond the end of the original story now. They're gonna run out of the time-skip space eventually.

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

I find their censorship decisions to be strange. In the first 3-in-1, they keep Bulma's boobs uncensored (more specifically in her shower scene), but when she's supposed to be giving Pilaf the middle finger, they edited it to be her index instead. That makes no sense to me, it's rated T for Teens. I...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

Something I just noticed while re-reading through a small bit of the Buu Arc (Chapters 442 and 443): So, while they're at the Tournament, Videl is getting destroyed by Spopovich, which causes Gohan to rage out and become a Super Saiyan next to all of the other fighters (destroying his bandana in the...

Actually, the scene with the army's attack is in the manga. It's in chapter 392 (198 in Viz)

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Tbh, I would've preferred Mr. Satan in the game over Videl. He'd make a great joke character (like pretty much any game he's in), the Dan of FighterZ. Nothing against Videl, she looks like she'll be fun to use (even though it's really because Great Saiyaman is part of her moveset), but her characte...

Re: Do You Think Chilled Was Weaker Than Frieza?

Definitely. Bardock was far weaker than Goku and Vegeta were during the Freeza Arc. Hate to use power levels, but at this point in the series they were valid: Bardock has a power level close to 10,000 in his base form (someone correct me if I'm wrong, I'm going by memory), so giving him the Super Sa...

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

So far I've only been looking for specific scenes that I know typically get censored. Chapter 100, there's the famous scene where Krillin pulls down Bulma's top in order to reveal her boobs, which makes Roshi bleed on the Invisible Man to help Yamcha see him. In the VizBigs, she is given a bra to co...

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

Just got my VizBigs in the mail (just DB 2-4 for now). Do like the quality so far, but I've been told the binding is weak so I'll be cautious while reading them. I might start listing the censorship they have for people who may want that sort of info. Overall, from what I'm seeing it's not butchered...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Dragon Ball GT

Bruce Faulconer's score only really works with Super Saiyan 3 tbh. Other than that, it reeks of the time period it's from. That's how I first remember experiencing Dragon Ball Z, but it's really hard to go back to.

I have the Latin American dub on DVD and the audio is what you describe I think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUdz_1QlWyg I thought maybe it was the poor encoding *might be* but did it always sound like this?

Re: What is the best (and most faithful) dub?

I have a soft spot for the Spanish (or Latin American) dub. I started with the English dub, but I didn't watch the whole series until I moved to Mexico for a few years. While I haven't watched the whole series with that dub in years, I remember it being very faithful to the Japanese original (at lea...

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

It's been 2 years since they finished the Frieza arc. But I did some quick research and saw that they also took 2 years to release them after the Saiyan arc. So maybe they take 2 year breaks in between? No idea why they would do that, but maybe they'll start the Androids Arc this year. Even so, that...

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

Well... That is, assuming you want to buy a release. It would, of course, be much cheaper to get the $2/month Shounen Jump service from Viz, which includes all of Dragon Ball, though in black and white. Though apparently it uses the earliest print masters from the individual volumes, so it's got th...

Not sure if this has been brought here (and I don't think it was in the Dissection series), but why didn't Bulma realize Future Trunks was her son until Piccolo tells her that he's the future version of her baby? I know she's only seen him once before, but wouldn't it be obvious the second she knew ...

Re: How Come Broly Was Never Detected By Anyone Up Until Now?

My guess for an in-universe explanation is that he couldn't be sensed because he was never really using his full power while in Planetoid Vampa. I doubt he was ever using all of his strength while training and whatnot. His hidden strength doesn't seem to be unleashed until the fights on Earth.

Re: Did Gogeta and Broly create a pocket dimension?

I'm severely due for a Dragon Ball Super rewatch, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but it looked like it was a continuation to the universe rip (or whatever)that was hinted at back in the Battle of Gods arc when Goku and Beerus' punches connect. I think something similar happened while Goku ...

For Z, I would recommend getting the Full Colors and then finishing off the Cell and Buu with VizBigs. Pretty good idea, but I'm just not into the Full Colors. They're nice, but I prefer the way it was originally colored (or, not colored, mostly). Plus I think they might be a bit pricier than just ...
