Re: The Official Unofficial Power Levels Thread

Just noting that Herm's translation of Toriyama's script says 1.30 million. Freeza: “Is that so surprising? In my estimation, if I train hard for 4 months then…I should acquire a battle power of 1.30 million…” Wow. And is this 4th-form Freeza saying this? Because if so, then damn, I'm surprised the...

What I'm asking is whether or not it's been confirmed. Have we gotten corroboration from other Japanese fans, or is it still just a rumor?

Re: Positive changes/Woolseyisms

Since you clearly dont get whats being said to you, ill make this simple. Saying "Jap" when regarding the Japanese is like calling a black person the N word. So yeah, best to cut it out. The term is absolutely offensive and has no place on this forum, but it's not like using the N-word. You know ho...

Re: Saiyan being spelt as Saiyan

Russia, Canada, etc are places, not cultures or species. This analogy would only work if they were called "Vegetans." One Saiya, two Saiyas; one Vegetan, two Vegetans. A real-world analogy would be the Cree people. One Cree, two Crees, The Cree. Never "Creein" or "Creeins." This is kind of cheating...

Re: The Official Unofficial Power Levels Thread

Did we ever find out if that whole "Freeza's battle power rose to 1.37 million!" rumor was accurate? If not, was any number given at all?

Re: Saiyan being spelt as Saiyan

The underscore in his username probably turns it into one word string. As such, the filter's probably not picking it up as a misspelling of "Saiyan." On a related note, why was Saiya-jin translated as "Saiyans" instead of "Saiyas?" Do we know if it's just oldschool dubbie dumbness or an actual mist...

Re: Most memorable BS dub lines / names

Sometimes when I watch the show subtitled, I imagine how those words would've sounded coming from the dub actors , like if we got the avuncular narrator played by Brice Armstrong with an accurate script instead of Dale Kelly/Kyle Hebert sounding like a monster truck rally announcer and spouting ter...

That sounds terrible. Quite frankly, I'd rather fight my way through an army of bad fanfiction characters in order to do anything if it means I can move around the hub faster than snail feces.

Re: Super as continuation of Z/Kai or Manga/Toriyama movies?

Quite frankly, I hope the new series references Tullece, Broly, Slug, Metal Cooler, and also foreshadows a bunch of GT stuff. Hell, throw in a direct reference to Cross Epoch while we're at it. The best way to get rid of the continuity debates is to smash the continuity with a fucking hammer.

Yes, there does appear to be. I'm assuming the thread-starter meant to say it was spelled as Sayian.

Re: Positive changes/Woolseyisms

I would argue that none of these are "positive" changes, made no positive impact on the product at the time, and should be looked at with historical scorn and general irrelevance. "Scorn"? As in, "indignant or passionate contempt"? Isn't that a bit strong of an emotion for what is, at worst, a poor...

Actually, it turns out that I was totally off in my assumption about Japanese ticket prices. I figured they were roughly similar to American prices, but it turns out they're almost twice that. So yeah, they need to sell a little under half a million more tickets, which is a bit more realistic, but s...

Damn, some quick math tells me that they need to sell over 900,000 more tickets in order to meet Toei's goal. That sounds like a bit of a long shot.
