Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I'm wondering about the way you wrote the scene where Satan takes credit for the win - is Jimmy encouraging him to do so?

Re: Why did Dragon Ball never do a movie version of the Piccolo Daimou saga?

I don't think it would be possible to remove the Darkness filler, at least without some extreme and very clever editing, but otherwise that should be perfectly doable with some fast paced action scenes. I'd actually like to have a go at editing some of the arcs into movies some day... With some two...

Re: Why did Dragon Ball never do a movie version of the Piccolo Daimou saga?

Most likely because the movies are more concerned with telling their own stories than retelling those from the show itself. The original Dragon Ball movies are slight exceptions as they sort of meet in the middle, but I definately think by Dead Zone that they gave up the ghost and shot for wholly o...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Have any of you heard of Blind Wave? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjvL3YkQGsA I've particularly enjoyed seeing Calvin experience the story for the first time. Even watching DBZA he experienced many scenes such as the original Super Saiyan transformation as epic moments. There isn't enough of tha...

Re: Changing SSJ God and SSJ Blue

Part of the problem was that it just seemed like too many transformations at once, and part of it was the implications of introducing a significantly powered up version of SSG after it had already been shown to be so powerful. I don't know if Toriyama changed his mind about how he wanted SSG to look...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Doctor. wrote:So, the Father-Son Kamehameha theme is a mix of Piccolo's theme, Day of Fate, Gohan's Angers and... am I missing anything?
I'm wondering actually, why did TFS choose to put Piccolo's theme in there? Is it to draw parallels to Goku's first major battle with a villain?

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I do appreciate both the season 1-2 style of overwriting the story with absurdist comedy and the season 3 style of embellishing the story with character-driven comedy, but fall in the camp that prefers the latter. Season 3 is a masterpiece, episode 60 was legitimately beautiful and I could have crie...

Re: Is Goku an Alpha-male?

An alpha male has the confidence and self-assuredness to lead naturally without thinking about it, and to raise up, praise and protect other members of the group like a parent or teacher, rather than dominate, bully or demean them, which is more of an omega trait. The alpha makes sure the weaker mem...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 8/20/18!)

I disagree. Way too many people, especially here, have praised the Cell arc for it's mystery being a strength of the arc when the the truth is the mystery is spelled out almost as soon as it is set up. It's really know more a mystery than any intrigue you might have got from Raditz when he landed o...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

FUNimation and TOEI should really look into making official DVD releases of TFS's Dragon Ball Z version because their fan-dub is really impressive. If TFS still want to touch up some of their older episodes like they've mentioned before, that could really work. Toei has a serious beef about DBZA th...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I don't think we're meant to take what #16 said as universal truth to apply in our lives. I think we're supposed to take it as him saying only what he needed to say to Gohan in that moment to spur him into action. He wouldn't have said it, especially not that way, in a different situation. As viewer...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I've said it before and I'll say it again: TFS's Cell arc is better than the actual Cell arc. There's so much depth and psychology to it all intertwined with the humour. I think Piccolo going to fuse with Kami was the turning point from DBZ parody to DBZ But Better. Krillin's relationship with 18, G...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

The Japanese language is extremely limited in range and variety compared to that of English. Look at how many words they have to borrow from us. It's no wonder translators make so many changes to the monotonous and repetitive dialogue... Again, there's a difference between altering the dialogue in ...

Re: Which Dragon Ball composers would "mix"?

Shunsuke Kikuchi and Akihito Tokunaga would go along really well. Sumitomo and Faulconer, both of these are eh and meh, and a mixture of the two could perhaps make their music more bearable to listen to. I could see Sumimoto and Faulconer working actually. Weird thing is I can also see Sumimoto and...

No, no, three parts, with the epilogue coming at the end of Dec. I just wish I could've made the epilogue part of the finale proper, but again... it's just so seperate from the events of the finale, y'know? Yeah, that makes sense. Even Kai treated that segment as an "extra" episode which makes it f...

I stick with the Japanese version these days, believe the original music is much more in the spirit of DB, Goku isn't a superhero yada yada yada, but man there are some pieces of music from the dub that I still love, especially music in the Buu saga which didn't feel nearly as intense when I came to...

Re: Dragon Ball references in other media

There have been MANY over the years, sometimes just subtle inclusion of Goku's famous 'do. I'll always remember that episode of Codename Kids Next Door back in what I assume was the early 2000s where each member of the team describes their part of the story the way they imagine it, and Number 4 imag...

Didn't Roshi mention feeling left out when Kami didn't send for him to train at the lookout? Yeah, he'd retired and was outclassed by the others (not sure if that includes Yajirobe and Chaozu at that point) but had Kami requested him he would have stepped up to the mark anyway. He wasn't sent for, w...

This is past beating a dead horse, but a really easy solution to the whole Gero situation could've just been Gero finding a DB, then sealing it in a place where nobody from the radar to God would find it. The DBs emit a faint electromagnetic pulse which Bulma discovered, it would be easy for Gero t...
