Re: How was FUNimation able to afford all that licensed band music back in the day?

Has anyone ever asked any of the bands exactly how their music ended up in the films, come to think of it? There's no guarantee that they'd remember I suppose, but there's always the possibility. Actually, if I remember right, aren't some of the songs no longer in the dub scores as of any re-release...

Re: How was FUNimation able to afford all that licensed band music back in the day?

The Digimon Movie had a licensed band music at the time too and that came out like a year or two before Funimation's dubs of DBZ Movie 4 and 5. That one I'd almost consider it's own case of using licensed music though, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the film is a combination of three different f...

Re: What parts of the franchise evoke nostalgia for you?

First off, I send you my condolences for your brother. :( Might not mean much coming from a random guy on the internet, but I know how hard it is to lose someone you love. To answer your question, there are a good couple of points in the franchise that I usually feel pretty nostalgic when I watch th...

Re: How was FUNimation able to afford all that licensed band music back in the day?

I actually enjoyed the use of the music, but for me it was mostly because that's what introduced me to that sort of music and as such I have nostalgia for it. I haven't watched the movies with that score in place in years, but I can still see the exact scenes in my head whenever I listen to Disturbe...

Re: Was there any backlash to the pedophilia (Mai & Trunks) plot point in DBS?

I remember it being pretty split online , but don't really think there was any real backlash. It does make me wonder how it would be received if GT Goku (as a child) was drawn to be given Chi-Chi a kiss or if that version of Goku found some little girl on a distant planet that he started hitting on...

Goku's Nyoibo Replica?

A thought just occurred to me while talking with a friend about what replica weapons we'd love to have. I've seen decent looking replicas of Trunks' sword for years now, but one thing I haven't seen that I for one would actually love to have would be Goku's iconic staff. Are there not any, or have I...

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

I mean, in the Arabic dub of DBZ, all instances of saiyans turning into oozarus are censored because those in charge of the censoring decided that those scenes amounted to promoting Darwin's Theory of Evolution, which many in the Arabic world are opposed to on religious grounds. Instead, those scen...

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

Speaking of the infamous General Blue scene, I'm curious - how would people feel if, in a potential Kai-ifying of the original DB (which isn't going to happen at this point really, but just for the point of argument here), they kept the scene but re-wrote the dialogue to the scene somehow or another...

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

While I understand and don't begrudge you or your friends your views on it, censoring is never the right answer in regards to things like this. If nothing else though, they could perhaps go with a warning menu or the like on releases that feature those particular episodes. WB has the right idea with...

Re: Vic Mignogna

It's true that it'll never go away entirely, but once the court case is over, and we have our new Broly voice established (and the same for some of Vic's other notable roles), then it will die down to at least a little quieter than it is now.

Re: So how does one *correctly* hug their fans?

I think it would be much easier if celebrities didn’t interact with fans at all. They don’t know these people. For all they know, they could be a bunch of weirdos, or vice versa. I feel like that's very much not the answer either. For all of the bad that comes out of celebrities and fans meetings, ...

Re: So how does one *correctly* hug their fans?

I would also say that, even just for the 'motion of a hug' hugs, where an arm is over the shoulders and the hand is on their shoulder, or even just hovering above it, it should always be made extremely clear prior to the contact that both parties involved are okay with it. And if it's someone under ...
