Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've been hearing this for almost 10 years, and I'm still waiting for DVDs to die, much less Blu-Ray and 4K. I used to be in the "physical media is dying" camp too. Now, I'm kind of in the same boat that I've heard it being speculated for so long I have my doubts. So many distributors, including Ma...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

I shot them an email and got back a pretty generic response but hopefully it'll do some good.

Re: Are there parts of Dragon Ball that remind you of your own life?

I feel kinda like Goku at times as I live on a farm and there's a lot of stuff that flies over my head(mainly due to my autism).

Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

Gosh, I miss the days of local affiliates kind of just doing...whatever. A few years ago one of mine were just playing Loony Tunes in the middle of the day and I was flabbergasted. I wish we could get this kind of unique weirdness again. Yes I recall watching Saved By the Bell reruns before school(...

Nice! It would be cool if it was a higher quality version of the movie.

Re: Things that grind your gears

Really, that they may start listening more to US fans given the unprecedented success of Broly. They already have been, but Broly is just going to result in more of that. Fan service in general is something I dislike, as I believe that an author's vision shouldn't be influenced by fans, but listeni...

Re: Things that grind your gears

How some purists(And I must REALLY stress the word "SOME", not "ALL", so the good people that are purists don't take this as a personal attack on them) look down upon dub fans and mock them. Vic stans butting in where they aren't wanted and making anime fans look bad. Funimation refusing to give us ...

Re: Funi's Kai dub and accuracy

I can understand thinking the Faulconer score sounds out of place, though I personally wouldn't call it generic as I can't think of another soundtrack that sounds anything like it. Some of the dialogue is laughable, didn't really notice that as a kid, but even as an adult I can honestly i've heard ...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Recently picked up the Pioneer Tree of Might single. Pretty happy to have all the Pioneer singles in some form. Maybe I'll try and get the laserdiscs some day. Also fulfilled my childhood dream of owning this god awful game a little while ago. Good condition and dirt cheap too. Remember when this g...

Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

First saw it in 98 on Cartoon Network like a lot of people did, I didn't have cable myself(and still don't as i've come to see it as a rip-off) so I could only ever catch episodes when I went with my mom to visit my grandmother once a week since she had cable. For whatever reason I never sought out ...

Re: Every CHANGE Ocean Made to Dragonball Z: Saiyan Saga (Part 1)

I mean, Ocean didn't change shit. It was Funimation. And, to be clear, it appears this video is being quite weird and selective with its choice of what constitutes a change -- for instance, edits are counted, unless they only remove filler, except he kinda goes against his own rules there when he t...

This guy does great videos that list all the changes 4Kids made to One Piece, and now he's listing all the changes the dub made to DBZ which makes me very happy, so enjoy!

^It does seem anime to Hollywood adaptations work best when anime is the inspiration rather than being straight remade.

I do think a direct Hollywood remake of Perfect Blue could work very well though.
Especially considering Perfect Blue was originally supposed to be live-action.

You really come off as a snob sometimes. I've never even seen SU and mostly follow the manga for the other two, but what is so wrong with them? Nothing. Some folks just like to hate.

If you've never seen Avatar: The Last Airbender then you are missing out. I recommend you sit down and watch it because it's definitely a special piece of art. I feel like I’m not missing out and I get the feeling the people who consider Last Airbender to be must see tv are the same people who cons...

LOL, I forgot about that aspect. Still, I must be missing something because Shingeki no Kyo-jin seems to be screaming "fascism will never work" to me just going by the focus of the characters really trying to avoid genocide. Speaking of facism, the website this article is from is a well-known haven...
