Re: Japanese Closed Captions for Dragon Ball

What are you asking vs. what are you telling?

Why are you adding hashtags?

I’m very confused.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Ultra Instinct was revealed first in Xenoverse 2 ahead of the anime. The whole “main product” talking point (which I’m probably extremely responsible for?) is completely irrelevant and doesn’t even make sense to bring up with the current state of the franchise’s production. No single version is a co...

Re: Can we have the ability to "Like" and otherwise react to posts?

Our philosophy is that we encourage people to respond with well-written, empathetic, genuine conversation pieces if they find something that interests them, and that it’s OK if you do not have anything to say. We understand this is not the way that many “modern” social media services work, and belie...

Re: The 9th of May is Piccolo day, not Goku day, you fools!

Japanese number wordplay: “go” for “five” and “ku” for “nine” (see also: “Saiya[n] Day” on March 18). Officially recognized in Japan five years ago.

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

That text is not from a newspaper, but from the summer 1991 issue of Animenominous, which had a feature on Dragon Ball. I’ve had the text up in the Press Archive for a while-

Re: Wasn't sure where to post this, but I just bought the only fansub tape on Ebay

Oh nice! Thank you for the insight! Just curious, back in the days of fansubbing, did you ever run into tapes subbed by a group called "Anime Labs?" I see them brought up as an infamous example of poor subs. Yeah, of course. I have a bunch of Anime Labs tapes. We have a bunch of translation compari...

Re: Wasn't sure where to post this, but I just bought the only fansub tape on Ebay

They wouldn't have been an actual fansub group; instead, they were likely an actual physical storefront running off duplicated tapes. Setups like this were fairly prevalent back then, particularly throughout New York (I frequented the shop in the basement of the Elizabeth Center in Chinatown, myself...

No need to call him an idiot. That’s so lame. Have a real conversation.

Why don’t they leak the whole chapter anymore? They’ve only been releasing a couple of images these last few months. This tells me that whoever that leaker is must be controlled opposition. I don’t like it. They might aswell leak the whole thing on there and stop teasing us. It’s untranslated so it...

Yes and yes.
