Re: How will Funimation's Dragon Box of the movies be released?

When it comes to animation that's...debatable. With the rare exception of the few scenes in movie 3 where the the frame is incomplete, it's not as easy to argue that something intentionally painted on the cel wasn't supposed to be there or, at the very least, isn't worth seeing. It's certainly a go...

Re: Know Your Meme: Over 9000!

Seriously, I don't see the point of that whole site. They just do it to make money...and I think ED is a much better meme-learning source. Know Your Meme is targeted at a broader audience. Encyclopedia Dramatica is more of a language immersion experience. If you spend enough time clicking links on ...

Uh...is that right?

The first time I saw it was on FOX early in the morning around that time. Did it air on CN first?
No, you're right. Some of the info is off.

Re: How will Funimation's Dragon Box of the movies be released?

Regarding the specials, the FUNi Dragon Boxes already increased the number of episodes per disc compared to the Japanese release to make it more economical. We have seven episodes per disc so far, and with 291 episodes, that's going to put only four episodes on the final disc. The TV specials are ro...

Rocketboom just added "Over 9000!" to their Know Your Meme series: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFf8CP3fNG0 As always, they do a nice job of explaining the origins of the meme to newcomers, and elaborate on its impact.

Re: Black Bars or No Black Bars?

Many widescreen TVs have options to stretch out the sides of the picture to fill the screen while leaving the center alone. For those that really want to fill every inch of their TVs for some reason, this might seem like a better option. I still can't stand it because it's the wrong aspect ratio, an...

Re: How will Funimation's Dragon Box of the movies be realesed?

I'd prefer one or two boxes with all the movies and the TV specials. The Dragon Boxes are marketed toward completists anyway ("it is your archive"). But if they decide to release them individually, even if the prices end up jacked up slightly compared to an economical box set, then I'd still be happ...

It's possible. The releases have ranged from about 3-5 months apart. I'm guessing we'll see the 5th box between late December and early February.

Re: Gohan (Cell Games) - Stephanie Nadolny

I don't care for her voice during the Cell Games, but that may be because I associated it with the babbly version of Gohan's Super Saiyan 2 transformation scene. And that's the writer/director's fault, not hers, but I still hear her voice delivering that unnecessary dialogue.

You don't suppose that with an impending apocalypse, with Goku gone, Kami and Mr. Popo might have let everyone know that they could get some serious training done in the blink of an eye? What impending apocalypse? Everybody dies in their first confrontation with the Androids. Didn't Goku die from t...

Re: Future Trunks Namekian Connection

Good idea. I can't think of a good reason it wouldn't work, as long as they still had a ship and New Namek was in good shape in that timeline. After training Goku, Kaio helped out the others on a few occasions, so I don't see why he'd just let them all die in vain. Also consider: The Artificial Huma...

Yeah, Vegeta did seem quite content to just hang out on earth for over a year when you'd think he'd make good on his threat to take it over and, well, pretty much do what Mecha Freeza was going to do: let Goku come back to a world that was a complete hell. I have to say the anime version makes a bi...

Re: Goku's power up from first Vegeta battle to Ginyu Force

Goku is surprised by how powerful he feels when he finishes his gravity training. Was he aware of Saiyans' ability to power up when recovering from injuries? Vegeta obviously knew.

Honestly didn't expect them to just go out of print. Anyone that hasn't gotten theirs yet, try contacting FUNimation directly. If they get enough requests to justify running another batch, I don't see a reason for them not to do so. They're not going to make any money if people start selling used co...

Re: Kuririn not destroying #18 - worst plot twist ever?

I'm siding with Cipher 's arguments. Kuririn has other implicit reasons for what he did. But Piccolo Daimao does raise a great point in that the kiss was all Toriyama decided to explicitly show us. Either Toriyama meant for the fans to fill in the gaps, or in his mind, Kuririn really was only thinki...

I think he was a generic Gohan clone that was suddenly chosen to be Goku's successor (now where have we heard that before?) at the end of the series and then shat on like the rest of the characters in GT. If you weren't Goku in GT, you were a nobody. That about sums it up. He's introduced at the la...
