Re: Kanzenshuu User's Favorite Movies/Specials Budokai

I'd love to see a bracket graphic, it'd have a fun flare to it. The rule as far as whether you've seen it or not won't affect me, I've seen all of the movies and specials out there, but it does bother me because this is a bracket situation. What if say Battle of Gods is your absolute favorite movie ...

Re: If You Were in Charge of an International Adaptation...

I can't speak for the Kanji of it, but I took enough to know the various meals of the day being based around when one was having it, bangohan being dinner for example. But it has been a good 11 years since my one year of Japanese study so what do I know? My point is there's only a point to which I'd...

Re: So I just bought the Blu-rays...

If I hadn't gotten FUNimation's Dragon Boxes as they came out, I'd absolutely own the Blu-Rays now as an acceptable, if flawed, release. I love this series to death, but it isn't worth $600 just to own the nicest DVDs. It really is a shame, too. Many of us fans weren't around when the Boxes were re...

Re: If You Were in Charge of an International Adaptation...

Kai-O literally translates to King Kai (which is as an aside an annoying fact of the official sub of super referring to Kaioken as King Kai fist, I know its accurate but it drives me nuts), and Sama is an honorific which doesn't need to be translated, at least not for a name. It only half tranlates...

Re: So I just bought the Blu-rays...

I appreciate the correction on what causes that issue as it's good to know, so thank you on that end. :)

It doesn't change my mind that it's the worst way to see the show given that it's still a huge quality problem though.

Re: Kanzenshuu User's Favorite Movies/Specials Budokai

Well, to throw my two cents in, with something as simple as this where we're picking a favorite between two choices it's completely fair to say you prefer the one you've seen versus the one you haven't, because you can't judge one way or the other on the one you haven't seen. Now if we were going to...

Re: Why did Funimation initially use a replacement score for GT?

I'm actually someone who does enjoy the Digimon Adventure/Adventure 02 dub despite its many flaws, but it's largely due to the voice actors giving great performances, and for the original story still seeping through. But you'll notice how I phrased that, despite the many issues. Old bad dubs have fa...

Re: If You Were in Charge of an International Adaptation...

Honestly, I'd just use Japanese names unaltered if I was given the choice, the show is drenched in Japanese culture as is - so I don't see a problem with the world learning some of that from the show. BUT if I was FORCED to make adaptation changes for whatever reason. I'd leave Goku as just Goku, I ...

Re: Did Toriyama give a reason 17 was excluded from the Buu arc?

I don't think there was a specific reason noted, but the Buu arc as a whole was an almost reboot of the core cast anyway, so it's not that surprising. Gohan's older, Goku's dead, Tenshinhan and Chaotzu are both out of the main cast, Futrure Trunks went to his own time but now we have a young Trunks ...

Re: Kanzenshuu User's Favorite Movies/Specials Budokai

RoF - to echo what I saw above me, DB movie 1 is just bland.

Battle of Gods is my favorite DBZ movie period so yeah.

DBZ Movie 13, I like DB movie 3 quite a bit actually, but it's just not quite as fun as DBZ movie 13 is.

Re: I'm going to love Saturdays as a DB fan

It's certainly a more exciting time to be a Dragon Ball fan than it has been for a very long time, and I am definitely pumped for it. While I definitely prefer DBZ subtitled due to the dubs various quality issues, I thoroughly enjoyed Kais dub on Toonami, and generally prefer my anime dubbed anyway....

Re: What if there was a Super Villain League?

It's an interesting concept, but as with the vast majority of 'evil organization' ideas it wouldn't really work very well. Heroes can band together for the greater good because that's their goal. Villains on the other hand have a harder time banding together since their goals tend to be more self se...

Re: Why did Funimation initially use a replacement score for GT?

I definitely agree it's pretty shitty to have hard work shut down harshly, and I certainly don't respect personal attacks on people who did the work. That said, I think it was only fair to criticize the dub for its many shortcomings, FUNimation could have wallowed in sadness or been arrogant, but in...

Re: Why did Funimation initially use a replacement score for GT?

It cannot be overstated how unanimously reviled the Falconer score was back in its day. People would say things to the effect of "it sounds like a cat running across a keyboard". Even among people who were more dub friendly the score was a major point of derision for the community back then. As for ...

Dude, that's awesome! You went from not being able to follow Dragon Ball, to following and loving it, having your view tarnished by GT (I didn't go into GT for a reason, but yeah I don't care much for it either), to not letting it bother you, to a toxic community, and eventually to an awesome one.
