Re: Going about buying the TV Specials

Yes get the 4:3 singles they actually look really good. I have the 16:9 double feature and both Funi singles. After comparing, the singles, almost surprisingly so, look just as good as the cropped release. Actually better since there's 20% more picture!

Re: DBGT's existence

I'm glad it exists because it's more Dragon Ball. Even if Toriyama didn't write it and the series is crap compared to Z, I do appreciate it's existence to a certain extent. If nothing else it definitely made the Dragon Ball video games more interesting. Freakin' Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta, thank you Toei...

Re: Androids 19 And 20 > Freeza?

Like others have said I was never impressed with #19 and #20 and always believed 100% Freeza was stronger than both. Only after #19 absorbed the kamehameha was Freeza surpassed imo. Maybe #20 did as well after absorbing Vegatas blast and some from Piccolo. Who knows, but that would mean Piccolo surp...

Re: Has anyone not seen the entire series yet?

Still haven't watched all of GT. Own the green brick complete series and have only watched the first few episodes. Also DB movies 2 and 3, which I own but I'm not watching them until I rewatch the entire anime.

Then its just the new BOG. I've seen almost everything and own almost everything.

This for me by far. The first FUNi dub and their treatment of the series is almost as bad though.

Most of us agree with you. It's just that they are not so quick to dismiss the FUNi version of Dragon Ball as being enjoyable.

Very true. Dragon Ball is beloved by millions who have never seen the original. They are fans and do benefit what the entire fan base is treated to. You think we would have ever gotten the Dragon Boxes if the Orange season sets didn't sell like hot cakes? There are reasons to appreciate and accept t...

No man you are not weird, lol. Dragon Ball is too much fun. There's nothing strange about liking both. :thumbup:

Re: Which DBZ Arc you hated at first, but grown to like it

Not hated but liked the least. It's the artificial human arc. What got me to appreciate it more was the manga, then the original anime. Goku's absence really does benefit the other characters. Vegeta and Piccolo obviously. The raw nature and circumstances of the Cybogs is really interesting as well,...

Re: Question about "hardcore" anime fans opinion on DBZ dub

It's the way the story is told. It's charm and wit is absent in the FUNi dub. The humour, the drama, the tragedy. It's not the same.

There's been some pretty nasty replies to this thread. A majority of us grew up on an English dub of the show and I think we would be absolutely shocked to not be called a fan of the show. In my eyes, as long as you're aware of the differences and understand the inaccuracies and what the facts are,...

Re: Do you consider Goku pure of heart?

I think he is. We can't take lightly how Granpa Gohan, Kuririn, Bulma, Piccolo, and everyone else influenced him. Chi-chi is probably the worst. Goku is pure and righteous, even when he lies he tells the truth. He can do no wrong willingly and his only downfall is his lack of knowledge about basic h...
