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

As I recall, even though FUNimation had already been making strides in better dubbing practices by then, including keeping original soundtracks, they wanted Dragon Ball to be 'consistent'. Many a discussion would come up back then and FUNimation themselves would even respond with how Dragon Ball nee...

My Dragon Ball Journey

Since I’ve reconnected with the Kanzenshuu forums, something’s been gnawing at me inside to explore this, and I think I can get this down. This is likely going to be text heavy, so just be aware of that as you begin reading this. My Dragon Ball journey began in 1995, back when I was in middle school...

Re: Has toriyama passed his peak?

Definitely not, Super's been an absolute godsend as far as I'm concerned. The Universe 6 and Future Trunks arcs have both been absolutely fantastic.

While I'm not huge on Super's adaptations of them, I am very fond of Battle of Gods and Resurrection F as well.

Yeeeeeaaaaah, I enjoy my Dragon Boxes a lot, but $600 is a bit much for that.

Re: So I just bought the Blu Rays...

If you just wanted a copy of DBZ and didn't care about the quality too much, the Blurays are probably fine, and honestly if I hadn't bought the Dragon Boxes when they were new, I don't know what I would do in your position. My honest recommendation would be to just buy Kai since it has both a 4:3 an...

Re: New digital manga focused on... Yamcha?

This is actually a fantastic idea beyond whether or not you like Yamcha. It's that wish fulfillment fantasy of the nerd who gets stuck in the world of his favorite story. Being in Yamcha's body actually makes this way more compelling than it otherwise might be, because if you ended up in Goku's body...

Re: The Namekians that Vegeta killed can't be brought back by Shenron forever?

There are many ways they could have eventually brought them back, be it the Namekian Dragon Balls, or more likely combining wish-fu between the Earth and Namekian Dragon Balls, or more recently there's the Super Dragon Balls. But I think from a literary standpoint it was for the best they stay dead,...

Re: Most Morally Reprehensible Character in DragonBall?

Doctor Gero. He kidnaps people against their will, does horrible experiments on them, tries to take over their minds, and is responsible for the near annihilation of the entire human race (in Future Trunks's timeline). Moreover, he didn't even do this for personal gain or some self righteous cause. ...

Re: What would super have to do to make you hate it intensely

What can Super do to make me hate it? Well, to put it bluntly, if it commits character assassinations on the characters I know and love, and fundamentally distorts what Dragon Ball is, those would be the things that would do that. As long as the characters continue to feel like themselves, and the s...

Re: Things in the story that bother you

Honestly, the only thing that ever bothered me greatly was the change in romantic relationships from Bulma and Yamcha to Bulma and Vegeta, and even then just in the handling of it, it felt forced and contrived. I will say I'm very appreciative of the recent movies and Super for making Bulma and Vege...

Re: Do you think the Dragon Ball fanbase is bad?

I enjoy discussing the show but the fanbase is bad and entitled. Same with sports, fashion, music and most other fanbases, I'm not perfect either I say plenty petty stuff. It is what it is and you're gonna see plenty of comments you don't agree with. And I've posted more than half sentences across ...

Definitely not, though like all fan bases we can be imperfect, I think more than any other Fandom we come together pretty well. I've been on hiatus for quite some time so my viewpoint may well be off a bit, but for every bad apple in the community, there's ten awesome people. It's part of why I alwa...

I'm hoping for Xenoverse 2 for Christmas, I did just get a new graphics card so I could play it (my ancient GTX 460 could not handle it), but that's about as far as I was willing to spend on myself before Christmas. In the mean time I've been running through Xenoverse 1 at a rapid pace since I never...

Thanks for the advice guys, I just finished the Gods of Destruction Tournament as the last batch of episodes in the hole so to speak went up on FUNimation now.

Should I wait for the Champa arc to be subbed before going to watch the future trunks arc?

So, it's been a long time since I saw anything new Dragon Ball related, as I have FUNimation NOW (mainly for One Piece), I've been indulging in their sub of super, skipped past the battle of gods and Resurrection F stuff, seen both movies to death already, really didn't want to re re see them.

Re: The decisions of Baby

The problem with the theory that Bebei wanted to torment Vegeta by cotnrolling him is why he didnt take over Goku's body is that if he left Vegeta he would STILL control him, as he did all of the entire fricking PLANET EARTH, and moreover could force Vegeta - against his will to BOW to him, and do t...
