Re: Question about "hardcore" anime fans opinion on DBZ dub

“Gogeta 00 brings up a lot of great stuff diving into actual logic and emotionless (in a good way!) analysis. I wish I had it in me to debate more that way and with you. Like I said earlier, though, I just don't. It kills me, but I just don't. I find it detracts from my overall enjoyment of the fra...

Re: Question about "hardcore" anime fans opinion on DBZ dub

“It doesn't follow that because Toei made changes from the manga that it's okay for Funimation to make changes for the English dub. There is not a line of logic there.” Again this is not the point at all . You are correct, there is no complete logical inference what so ever in that statement, at le...

Re: Question about "hardcore" anime fans opinion on DBZ dub

I honestly can't help but think there's some double standards (is that the right word?) when it comes to bashing the dub. "Toei can do whatever they want it's their show, and the changes don't really affect the story" "How dare Funimation do something with DBZ even though Toei gave them the blessin...

Re: Quality of Discussion on Kanzenshuu Going Downhill?

I'd like to hop on the Lil'Lemmy bandwagon and express my wholehearted agreement with his assessment of the problem, just to give credit where credit is due! :D As a long time member/lurker who's activity has significantly diminished over the past few years I certainly sympathize and agree with the ...

Re: Most Nostalgic DB Ads, Trailers, etc.

Ah, it is nice to see another person who grew up watching the series on ytv here in Canada! I love those videos, they really show how wacky and weird ytv was back then. It was magical growing up with all of my old favourite anime on that wonderful little station; I owe my love of anime almost entire...

Re: JSAT Special, 5th Anniversary

I barely remember the special itself but I remember all of the awesome feelings that came with watching it. Funimation seriously needs to get around to releasing this. Looking back now it is funny that since this special we have gotten a re-release of the "Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans" OVA, Episode...

Re: Question about "hardcore" anime fans opinion on DBZ dub

You can't compare the anime's changes to the dub's changes. The vast majority of differences you can find between the original manga and the anime are made out of necessity(catching up to the manga, mainly). When it can be avoided, the anime is more or less a shot-for-shot reinterpretation of the m...

Re: Question about "hardcore" anime fans opinion on DBZ dub

I don't see what's wrong with penguintruth 's logic. It would be exactly the same if Viz made up dialog and re-wrote character intentions throughout the manga. They generally didn't, but it went there a few times, and we've certainly called them out on it when they did/do. If your viewpoint is that...

Re: DBZ Season Sets: No Book Included?

That's kinda crappy. I mean, I get it. They wanna save themselfs some money. But not including a booklet on a DVD box set is a pretty shitty thing to do. If they wanted to save money, perhaps they could've just printed up one slip of paper with all the episodes and what disc you can find them on. O...

Re: Fan Confessions?

Here's a few more: I really dislike Mr Satan, particularly during the Cell era. I don't get a kick out of him, I just find him to be an annoying jackass most of the time. I accept and enjoy most filler. Except for the Freeza arc when it was all pretty much insufferable, but to be fair the story didn...

Re: Fan Confessions?

Well I'll start with the biggest confession to get it out of the way. (Warning, rants ahead) Although it is good, I think that the Freeza arc is immensely overrated and is nowhere near the best part of the series. I know that I'm in the minority here but the Freeza arc doesn't hold a candle to the C...

Biggest buzz kills...

Recently, with the Freeza saga coming to a close on my current viewing of the Dragon Box sets, I began to grow really excited as my favorite part of the series was just around the corner and I would finally get to view it in Dragon Box quality. As the disc came to a close along with the saga, I pull...

Re: Do you ever get the feeling of wanting to work out durin

When I was little I used to beat the shit out of my punching bags and pillows during commercials and then drop into push-ups and sit-ups after the show ended. I think I finally stopped around the time I was old enough to realize that doing this would not make me a Super Saiyan.

Like many others, today I completed my Dragon Box collection with the purchase of number 7. Has anyone else noticed that number 7 is a bit taller than the rest?

Re: Dragon Ball Guilty Pleasures

My biggest guilty pleasure is easily the Ocean dub. I have others (some Faulconer music, some filler, and some corny lines) but that one is easily my biggest. It is partially nostalgia and partially a legitimate enjoyment of some of the actors, music, and overall cheesy 90's feeling.

Re: JSAT & Raging Blast 2 Specials

It is considered Dragon Ball; it is a re-telling of that particular series. Yeah, but it has GT designes, it has GT soundtrack and it was released during GT... Maybe so, but that doesn't change the fact that it is a story about the very first Dragon Ball anime series with little or nothing to do wi...

Re: JSAT & Raging Blast 2 Specials

"Special" is really the best way to classify them, if you ask me. The Jump Super Anime Tour Special is typically called exactly that, with the English word "Special" in the mix. It didn't play in traditional "theaters", since it was a part of a 10-stop tour across Japan. It did play SOMEWHERE befor...
