Re: Funny Dub Lines

Yamucha: "Cat loves food, y-yeah, yeah, yeah!" Nothing clever about it. In and of itself, it's not even particularly funny. It's just notably out of place. Vegeta's quip about "your incessant jabbering" is strangely appropriate for the dub. Dende: Guys, don't piss off the God of love! There are plen...

Re: What Was Your Introduction to the Japanese Score?

I first heard the Japanese soundtrack on the Ocean dub Pioneer VHS release of Dead Zone . I was really impressed, and like some others here, came to associate it with the DBZ movies for a while. I also stumbled upon a commercial for Movie 13 featuring "We Gotta Power," and experienced a rush of nost...

Re: Did anyone else HATE the first set of eyecatchers for DBZ?

Most of the time, they don't match the tone of the show. DBZ Abridged points this out nicely when Vegeta fiercely attacks Goku. The shot cuts quickly to the happy eyecatches, then immediately resumes with Goku coughing up blood.

Re: Hey guys, I guess we were wrong all along.

The Book of Revelation to Toriyama says that we shall all someday be destroyed by a being with pink flesh. But fear not, for we shall soon be resurrected.

Re: What's The First Episode You Watched? (When/Dub/Scene?)

I watched Dragon Ball during its run in America way back. A few years later, I discovered Z in the Saban era on a Saturday morning when Goku was training in the ship on his way to Namek.

Re: Dragon Box 3 discussion

I've been waiting for the usual RightStuf sale on FUNi products; I just happened to come to DaizEX today and saw this topic. Realizing it was out, I checked RightStuf and noticed the already-discounted price on the third DBox, so I just put in my order within the past 10 minutes. I got another item ...

Re: Dragonball Kai dub?

The voices sounded all right. I was less than thrilled to hear Freeza's familiar old dub laugh. Maybe she'll bring a better performance this time, but I'm guessing it'll be more of what we've come to expect from the dub. Time will tell, though. I might have a look at the Kai dub (and its TV censor j...

Same here. I'm just going to wait until the (potential) sale to preorder, and I'll snag something else along with it to get free shipping.

Re: Which will you get Dragon Ball Z Kai Part 1 or Dragon Box 3?

Dragon Box 3. I'm interested in having all of Dragon Ball Z , and the editing in Kai turns me off. Part of my interest in Dragon Ball is nostalgia, and part of it is being able to finally see the entire anime in its original, unbutchered form for the first time via the Dragon Boxes. Kai has neither ...

Nameks are powered by magic. They can create magic dragon balls (and clothes out of nothing), etc.
Oh, right, how could I forget about the Clothes Beam? Now there's a haxxed ability.

Re: "FUNimation thinks its audience is stupid" - Wait, what?

Now I may be going a little off topic here, but I have a question. Does enjoying The Office (US) mean that one is uncultured? Is the creation of The Office (US) a direct insult to our intelligence? Enjoying reinterpretations, in and of itself, doesn't make one uncultured. We're discussing an anime ...

Re: "FUNimation thinks its audience is stupid" - Wait, what?

When Pioneer started releasing the movies, I remember preferring the original soundtrack to the Shuki Levy stuff that was airing at the time, so even as part of the young target audience, I found the changes questionable. It's worth pondering whether the "reversioning" was necessary when Dragon Ball...

The Freeza art is pretty cheesy, but it's fine with me.
That was quick! I'm going to wait until the release date draws nearer in anticipation of another FUNimation sale.

As a result, watching the original Japanese episodes is sometimes almost a whole new experience for me, albeit one that sometimes gives me nostalgia trips from remembering fragments from years ago - a good example of which was the final episode preview of Disc 7, which had me thinking "Holy crap, i...

For those who use your PS3 to play the dvds, what settings do you use? I go back and forth between Stereo and Matrix. This is a Home Theater question btw.

I just got my shipping confirmation too. That's about two and a half weeks earlier than expected! I've got standard shipping, so if anyone had expedited, they should be getting it very soon.
