Re: When was Gohan a SS2 in Boo arc (again)

I see Gohan become super saiyan 2 once during the entire Buu arc and it's at the tournament for Kibito. Gohan isn't like Vegeta and Goku and couldn't use the form so easily. He appears to me to be super saiyan (1) afterwords. Goku tells Gohan to use full power after giving him a senzu bean, this sea...

Re: Most disturbing death

For the most disturbing deaths, aside from no name side characters, General Blue, Bora, and Piccolo Daimaos were pretty gruesome. Tenshinhans brutal beating by Nappa is up there. Vegeta may take the cake from an emotional and imagery standpoint. Freeza's slow beating of him and his final breath is t...

Re: Where do you stand on buying Japanese books?

If enjoying a Japanese book means solely being able to read and understand the written material I understand, but I view owning them from a collector's standpoint and fully enjoy simply having them.

Re: Where do you stand on buying Japanese books?

The only Japanese books I would buy would be the Dragon Ball guide books and maybe the One Piece guide books. I own Daizenshuu Volume 10 TV Animation Part 3, and plan on getting all of them minus the carddass perfect files.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I will be shocked and will lol if this works. This is obviously a poke to the fan base that whined over Kuririn never trying this combo on namek. Kuririn is still sitting at 1,500, a blind Zarbon should have the reflexes to dodge this. If only Kuririns potential was unlocked this Kienzan would have ...

Re: DBZ's Reputation With "Hardcore" Anime Fans

"Dragon Ball Z has been surpassed." This is something I would imagine a "hardcore" anime fan saying. Frankly, they wouldn't be wrong, but I would lose credibility in their opinion if they don't at least acknowledge or admire the Dragon Ball/Z anime. It really is good, and has superb qualities that m...

Re: Has TFS damaged the reputation of the franchise in the U

Show all the ignorant haters of DBZ on Toonami TFS and they would love it like an SNL skit. Fans of the original who started with the FUNi dub obviously find it hilarious. It's an interesting thing TFS. It's a way to show dub only fans how ridiculous it is compared to the original. It makes the orig...

Re: Ever wish for a different animator?

I wish the entire series was animated by Minoru Maeda early on, and then Tadayoshi Yamamuro later. There are a few others who shined compared to Uchiyama and Ebisawa, but those two fellas knew how to fucking draw.

Re: Is a new series inevitable?

A new series? No way. New movies/specials, absolutely. Even a Toriyama backed series doesn't seam likely. But future products like Battle of Gods and Yo! The Return of Son Goku and Friends! are practically inevitable. Dragon Ball is the kind of series that can keep going on and on with new movies an...

Re: Your Dragon Ball Holy Grail?

I have a good one. A while back I managed to purchase a copy of questionable quality of Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans . It's barely watchable but I can at least say I've seen it. Anyway, I absolutely love the music! The theme to the ending credits, OMG it's the jam. Totally 80's vibe that I can't ge...

Re: Have You Ever Been Ashamed Of Liking DBZ?

Dumb popular girls would laugh at me for wearing DBZ shirts back in like 4th and 5th grade... They would hear the Saturday Morning kids cartoon vibe when they would see it on TV. They thought it was uncool to where cartoon shirts. I didn't where those shirts to school anymore lol. Stupid girls didn'...

Re: Goku's mother...appearing soon?!

This is just more to know. This doesn't necessarily take anything away from Goku's simple background. Although I'm not a huge fan of his mother being "nice", and didn't even know about "nice" saiyans stated to exist in BoG until this thread. I prefer to see the saiyans as the ruthless barbarians the...

Re: VA Masaaki Tsukada Passes Away

Damn, I feel for Masako Nozawa. After reading this week's Bleach I see this terrible news in the comment section. I was truly shocked and immediately pictured a saddened Nozawa. He was the VA of old man Yamamoto. They were both so talented and shared the same passion. The must've had so much fun tog...

I'm gonna buy this movie sooner than later. It's part of my 2014 Dragon Ball purchase list next to the Blue Bricks and Z movie packs. l could easily watch it now, but I'm honestly holding off until I can actually purchase it and watch it on my own TV.
