Re: The Fr ie za thing.

I like "Fr i eza", I think it's clear how it should be said and it looks better and more like a name than "Freeza" or "Freezer", and can be taken more seriously. I like "Furiza" more than those two as well, for the same reasons, but I wouldn't use "Furiza" because the pun is sort of lost with that. ...

Re: Why didn't Goku use the Shunkan Ido to get to Earth?

The reason he had to travel almost the whole way to Earth in the space pod was because teleportation only works if you can sense a ki where you need to teleport to, and he was too far away. In the original timeline he stepped in to fight Freeza and his ship landed a few hours later. What I don't und...

Re: Western equivelents of the characters' accents?

I'm confused. Is this thread about finding English equivalents of the various Japanese accents that appear in the story, or is it about what kind of accents you'd like to see certain characters have, regardless of how they speak in Japanese? I started the thread meaning for it to be about the close...

Re: Western equivelents of the characters' accents?

Maybe it would be a good idea for Raditz, Vegeta, Nappa, Ginyus etc. Basically everyone from space to have a sort of generic English accent that is more subtle and not OTT, while Freeza has a more pronounced Brittish accent, just to make him more evil. There was another thread I read somewhere in wh...

Re: Western equivelents of the characters' accents?

Well, since this is a completely opinion-based discussion, I'd say the limits are wherever you, personally, want them to be. For me, even something like a German accent of some sort for General Blue is fine, but if people were speaking English in a bunch of different Japanese accents, I'd just think...

Re: Western equivelents of the characters' accents?

I can really imagine him talking like that, it seems perfect!

I'm also wondering, if anyone here knows, do people from space, or any of the villains, have particular accents in the original Japanese version?

Western equivelents of the characters' accents?

I know many Dragon Ball characters have specific accents and dialects, but as a non-Japanese speaker some of them are sort of lost on me, especially as they usually don't get translated. What would you say were the English-spoken equivelents of some of them? If you were directing an English dub that...

Re: Age of the Characters?

The guide have never mentions Kaio, do we know how old he is? In response to something in the age-guide thread, it seems likely to me that the Saiyans wouldn't age while in hibernation, they'd do something to prevent themselves wasting their life away while travelling in space. They're probably phys...

If Goku and Vegeta had gone into the RoSaT together?

When Goku said something along the lines of "Only two people can enter the room at once and I'm going in with Gohan, so you'll have to train with Trunks" to Vegeta, it sounded very much like he was saying "The two of us would go in together if I wasn't going in with Gohan", and I've just been wonder...

Re: DNA's Filler Arc analysis

I agree. The planet could be made of the substance that broke the Z-sword or something. That's unlikely. Kachin, a metal so strong that seventeen year old Gohan with the all mighty Z-Sword couldn't cut is what a planet that six year old Gohan destroyed with a single blast? I don't think so. I wasn'...

Re: DNA's Filler Arc analysis

I actually like the Garlic Jr arc. Other arcs generally reduce to: 1. A new enemy, more powerful than anybody else, appears/ 2. Protagonist gains a power boost and defeats the enemy with brute strength. The Garlic Jr arc has much more to it story-wise than that. There's the quest to restore humanity...

Re: Vegeta the 32 Year Old Virgin ?

I'm undecided about both the virgin/not and the rapist/not thing. He's certainly done plenty of things about as bad as rape, and he was capable of a "passion thing" with Bulma so we know he has a sex drive, but he's also very cold and proud, and probably gets more pleasure from killing anyway. We kn...

Why didn't Goku just fetch the Dragon radar himself?

Re: Dragon Ball dub

If you're brain is able to keep up comfortably, the most enjoyable way to watch Dragon Ball (as long as you don't hate the dub voices) is to watch it with the English audio, but with the subs displayed so you can see what the Japanese dialogue is too. This way you get the best of both, so when the t...

Re: Dragon Ball (Z) Anime

The anime has more major flaws than the manga. The manga doesn't have anything seriously wrong with it, but the anime has filler that drags out fights to 20+ episodes long, often with nothing of substance happening for more than an entire episode at a time, and also some pretty enormous contradictio...
