Re: Toriyama's racial/ist character portrayals?

I also wonder if DBZ had bad blood with other asians, we all know the Chinese hatred in manga nowadays, but was that Bruce Lee impersonator meant to look like such a joke? More than likely. Toriyama has a bias towards Jackie , so I wouldn't put it past him to give Bruce (the superior man) the finge...

So if we narrow it down to the ones where Broli is playable... Budokai 3. :P

Re: Need someone to dub bruce faulconer BOG. Willing to pay

I just know that his music in the 90s is what helped draw a larger audience of people, who would normally never take an interest in Japanese animation. If DBZ had aired in the USA with the original music, nobody would have given a crap. They certainly didn't when the original DB did just that. It's...

Re: Toriyama's racial/ist character portrayals?

For what it's worth, none of these characters (except maybe Popo) are actually stereotyped or written differently by Toriyama beyond their appearance. The only time there's a joke/reference made about a character's race is in the anime, from whatever dickhead thought it would be funny to change Blac...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

One would like to take this moment to bring something to everyone's attention - as of roughly March (give or take a few weeks), Dragon Ball Z Abridged has now been running longer than the original run of Dragon Ball Z itself.

Just gonna let that sink in for a while.

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I'd just have to note that TFS is now approaching the point in the series that spawned one of the most infamous memes, probably second only to over 9000. So I wonder if they are going to do a "firin mah lazer" reference with Semi-Perfect Cell. They already did it with Nappa way back when. Dunno if ...

Re: Positive changes/Woolseyisms

Tri Beam is one of my least favorite attack name changes. Aside from the fact that it in no way even tries to be even the loosest of translations, it really doesn't make any sense. What is three-sided about it? Whenever it's used on the ground, the impact is always a four-sided shape! Yeah, the way...

Re: Complete list of plotholes/continuity issues in the movi

Breaking news: most of the movies don't gel with the series. Do we really need a whole list? I'd imagine most of us know how/why they don't fit. It's not even "plot holes" per se, since they very obviously aren't supposed to jive with the manga/anime.

Re: What are your wishes for the next Dragon Ball Z Film?

I'd like it to be set either just before the final Budōkai and/or after the end. Don't really "wish" for anything plot-wise, I'd just like to see more of that tantalisingly-glimpsed untapped era of the characters' lives. I feel like that's kind of what the new movies have been building towards - BoG...

It wasn't ever mentioned how long it takes for them to be reborn and Kid Buu was a special case which might also have been much faster than usual to please Goku. Actually, Toriyama recently stated that the more evil someone is, the easier it is for him to be purified. Which would explain why Boo wa...
