Re: Dragon Ball Youtubers: What are your opinions on them?

Unfortunately the Dragon Ball videos I usually see get attention are the generic reactions and "facts you didn't know" videos (most of which are actually wrong/ have no sources)

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

Quick update: I ordered a few VIZBIGs (Dragon Ball 2-4). Skipped vol. 1 because I have 3-in-1 vol. 1 as a stand in for now. I'll replace it later.

Though now that I think about it, I should've gotten it for a direct comparison lol. Oh well.

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

I'm just gonna go with the VizBigs. The classic color pages are a huge selling point to me. Biggest gripe (aside from the basically unavoidable censorship) is that I'll miss out on the Spine Art. All they have are a bunch of Goku pics on both the spine and covers. But oh well. Thanks guys! I guess o...

Re: Would you like to see Goku age and become old eventually?

Personally i wouldn't mind seeing Goku old, after all at this point in Super he is in his early 40's. So it's not like we haven't seen him age before. It would feel natural. Not to mention that, thanks to Toriyama, they don't even need to look old until they're 80 anyways. Heck if we count all his ...

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

If you know Spanish, they've released all or almost all of the Full Color volumes. I do but I'd rather just have it in English for convenience. I do know Spanish, but even so I don't think getting all of those would be very easy. And I'm much more comfortable reading in English. But thanks for the ...

Re: Best VIZ release of the Manga?

I actually do have the first volume of the 3-in-1 set, but yeah, the paper quality isn't very good. I'm also not a fan of the lack of color pages. The colored chapters really stick out in a bad way because they're reduced to grey-scale, and the details become unclear. I think I might go for the VizB...

Best VIZ release of the Manga?

So, I've never actually collected the full manga series (mainly because I would just go to the library to get them temporarily whenever I felt like revisiting) I've kinda wanted to get a printed run for my own shelf, but I can't decide which. I tried looking at my options in the Kanzenshuu guides, b...

I think it may be because he was originally sealed in a rice cooker and he had the Pilaf Gang with him at first. That's about it though

Re: DBZ is still DB

I guess it doesn't help that the VIZ releases of the manga are all split between Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. I think the only exception is the 3-in-1 release

Oh, and the Full Color sets. But they released them starting with the Saiyan Arc, even in Japan from what I've heard

I like Geekdom101 because he is very informative. Unfortunately I stopped following him because I wanted to avoid spoilers for Super. I still check out his channel from time to time, for things like Dragon Ball In-Depth . I've always liked learning new things about Dragon Ball, and he's got me cover...

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

For Z, the best compromise would be slapping on Kai's dub and redubbing to fill in the blanks, but even then 122 episodes would still be a huge commitment and expense Funimation isn't likely to go through with. Well, the mouth flaps also wouldn't match because they were made for Kai, which edits th...

That does kind of make sense considering the first thing we see Chi-Chi do is kill a dinosaur

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

I think a GT redub isn't necessary when it's been pushed aside by the fans in favor of Super. Today, anyone new to GT would likely avoid it because of the notion that it's "not canon". I would say re-dubbing Z is a better idea, but I guess they won't feel the need to that either because of Kai. But...

I can't believe I was dumb enough to avoid the Kanzenshuu Forums for all these years.

Now I can discuss my favorite Dragon Ball analysis series with other fans. Cool.

If so, hi! Huge fan of Dragon Ball Dissection here (never thought I'd geek out in a forum. At least not like this)

Re: DBZ is still DB

Some people argue that they're split starting with the appearance of Raditz (like in the anime), because that's apparently the start of a tonal shift? Idk, I personally thought the tone shifted starting with Krillin's death and Piccolo Daimao, but I don't think the change is drastic to the point of ...

I think the Future Trunks arc tries to make it a thing (with Future Trunks also being in a relationship with Future Mai), but it really doesn't go anywhere.

Yeah, as I said before, I don't think Kid Trunks x Mai is supposed to be serious. The Pilaf Gang is just sticking around for their own convenience (besides, without any extraordinary abilities, they'll just be dismissed as kids, so they don't really have anything else to do) But if the pairing is me...

Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

Z had an episode with Goku and Piccolo in casual outfits going to get driving lessons, so yeah, I don't see why it would be labelled as "dark" lol
