Huh, you're right. I wonder where that came from. I'm pretty sure someone pointed it out to me before, too, and I just ignored it... like a dumbass... anyway, yeah. Someone got the correct Goku/Vegeta episode numbers? Chapters aren't a problem (Julian can just look 'em up). I was going to look it u...

Sorry if this was brought up already somewhere else, but I think there's an error in the SSJ2 section of the Saiyan Transformation Guide. It says Gohan transformed in ep 155, but shouldn't this say 184? Also, Majin Vegeta is listed as transforming in episode 162, but it would have had to be well aft...

Overall I would say I prefer FUNi's way of acting over the Ocean Group's, but I simply prefer the Ocean Group's voices a lot. Kaioshin might not have the best voice for acting, but frankly FUNi's version just sounded horribly. Same for Dabura and *shivers* Buu. For some reason Ocean simply picks ou...

I was introduced via the dub back at the beginning of 99, so yeah, I'll agree with the fact about nostalgia mentioned earlier. But I've found I like the Japanese version more mostly because of the background music. The dub had some good cues, but as an avid film/TV music fan, I don't like the idea o...

From what I understand, the first four episodes were somewhat like their "pilot-run" for Saban. After / because of those four episodes, things started changing (such as the whole "next dimension") concept. In fact, those four episodes were later re-dubbed. Some of the "kill" and such stayed in, but...

Does anyone know why in dubbed eps 1-4 they actually use phrases like kill? Raditz in particular says something along the lines of "we'll be killed", when he's being held down by Goku. It seems the whole 'other dimension' thing started after that. Did someone at Saban (or elsewhere) just not like th...

About the whole spaceship thing, I think Psaros was pointing out the inconsistency with the English version of DBZ. Because in the episode in which Piccolo destroyed the ship, the computerized voice repeating itself kept stating, "Wake up, Kakarrot," over and over. I think he was pointing out that ...
