it will be said if she passes away I think every dragon ball fan will be heartbroken.
If? I mean, she is only human. It's only a matter if time for us all.

Of course, I hope she lives as long as possible.

It's amazing how condensed that timeframe is and yet as a kid, it all felt interminable.
For me, I recorded every episode, and I also watched the reruns on the Midnight Run and so I was watching it more than it aired, so in hindsight, it felt like it was repeating more than it was.

Re: "You're a Weeb"

The North American Dragon Ball fanbase is split between the English and Japanese dubs. Because of how radically different the two dubs can be (particularly with earlier media), the two sides often clash over which is superior. When it comes to fans of the English dub, they often dismiss those who p...

Re: What's the definitive "Goku gets a one-sided ass-whooping" scene?

I'll toss a vote for Z movie 7 with Super 13 beating Goku down. I mean, he punches Goku in the testicles, and then even blasts his shirt off! I mean, sure, his shirt has come off many times before and since (and that's when you know he's taken a beating, whenever his shirt is torn off), but to have ...

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

Because "Makkankosappo" sounds absolutely ridiculous in English. Or you could actually adapt the Japanese term as Viz did. Though, Viz' localization has apparently gone to shit as of late, since the latest chapter of Super had 17 say "spoiler alert". I hate that shit, and it really makes me think o...

I like the DB ones but the Z ones just look like the old singles, right down to the tint and purple shirt.
Yeah, it's clearly just a hue shift (towards green. Look at the green hue of Krillin's dougi). That's not how the color correction is done with Dragon Box footage.

Re: Tenshinhan's lifespan

I like to think that the whole "lifespan" thing was only really relevant earlier in the series because I think that as he grew stronger and more resilient, the effect it took on him became negligible. That's how it may have thrown his Shin Kikohos left and right at Cell before it became fatal.

I've been watching through it aswell and I don't think the quality declines although I'm just at the end of the cell fight right now. There was however a flashback in the last disc I watched that had footage of gohans previous fights and it looked awful. Like I've been overlooking a lot of the prob...

Making high quality posters from screenshots can be tough but you could try using footage from the Level Sets to recreate those camera pans.

Re: "Funi took terminology straight from Banda"i thing is true or not

I can certainly buy that Chris Sabat had a say in “Kaioken” being pronounced correctly. In fact, that’s probably what it was. You even had Vegeta pronouncing it correctly in the UUE dub. Then he "corrected" it back to "kei-o-ken" for the Japanese music track on the Orange Bricks (how was this handl...

As far as the origin of "Saiyan", wasn't there some scenes in the anime using that spelling? Like on a T-shirt or something?
Someone on one of the islands Cell blows up is wearing a shirt that says "The Super Saiyan."

Re: "Funi took terminology straight from Banda"i thing is true or not

Well, Saiyan is also just a legitimate adaptation of Saiyajin, since "jin" is just a term to describe someone from a place, so it's just a logical adaptation.

Re: Are there parts of Dragon Ball that remind you of your own life?

I guess I could also add that that birthday filler I mentioned was also an episode I happened to be watching in 2011 or so when the Dragon Box with it came out. I was watching it when my uncle came over. He died shortly after, so that's the last time I ever saw him... That episode reminds me of my u...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I don't think we're going to see DVD go in quite the same way that VHS and Laserdisc did in the early 2000's once it really took off, because even after the HD formats came around it's still kicking despite being over 20+ years old. I think what's helped DVD stay around for so long is how cheap it ...

The Gohan birthday filler episode always makes me feel good because it reminds me of my childhood and how my family used to be together and happy, regardless of all of the problems going on in life.
