Re: A random nod to Dragon Ball?

Yeah, it was a completely random find. A nice little surprise to find a good band that also has good taste in manga and throws in references like that.

Re: How should characters sound

They definitely shouldn't sound like the Ocean dub Canadian cast. Purchased the Rock the Dragon set and popped in one of the dvd's, they all sounded horrible I prefer Funi's dub the most. I disagree a lot. So many of them are so good. The voice for Piccolo, Ox-King, Ginyu, Gohan, Kuririn, Chichi, P...

Re: How should characters sound

I think Ian Corlett is my favorite Goku, even as a fan of the original Japanese. I think what makes him a good fit for me is that though his voice is more "adult" sounding, it still manages to hold a youthful quality that makes it perfect for Goku's child-like naivety and sense of adventure.

Re: Recast Masako Nozawa's Roles

Yeah, Linda Young threads pop up because most of us here think she's absolutely dreadful (and she is), but Nozawa threads pop up either because people are being disturbingly morbid or they're just genuinely curious as to what other voices could work for the character. I guess there's also the 'Goku...

Re: Should Ocean Productions get another shot at Dragon Ball

Definitely. With less censorship and more faithful scripts, I have no doubt that Ocean would've done as good as Funimation's currently doing with Kai (if not much much better). For the sake curiosity, who was your preferred Goku of their first 53 episodes? And what do you think Richard Ian Cox poss...

Re: Should Ocean Productions get another shot at Dragon Ball

If they were able to do the show with the same cast as the first 53 episodes, I think that would be awesome to see. Of course, I think it would also be important to have a better script, directing, etc., but ideally that is the English cast I would have liked to see from beginning to end, because wh...

Re: Should Toriyama's word be taken as absolute truth?

Also that Vegeta vehemently stated that he and Goku were the only full blooded Saiyans alive, of his knowledge at least. Vegeta ignores the crap out of him on purpose. Creating him to mostly point on that feels.. off. Literally all you'd have to do is have Vegeta be surprised that Tarble is alive, ...

Re: Should Toriyama's word be taken as absolute truth?

It's just somewhat difficult for me to accept "big" changes that are added later on. Tarble, for me. All of that was so cheap. I'm just glad that he fell back in the Obscurity where that pointless Whiner crawled out of. Tights i like better somehow, but she's an other and easier to accept Category....

Re: Should Toriyama's word be taken as absolute truth?

Understood. I just disagree that it's inconsistent is all. The story explains that she's stopped living at Capsule Corp. as of when she graduated college at the latest. The lack of consistency would have arisen had she explained that she lives at Capsule Corp. and it was just a coincidence that we ...

Re: Saiyans or?

I would definitely like to see more attention given to the other characters, as they are some of my favorites and it's sad how they got "left behind" as the series progressed.

Re: Should Toriyama's word be taken as absolute truth?

That wasn't a Dragonball story, though. It occurred in Jaco. The affiliation to Capsule Corp. wasn't what was needed, but rather the fact that she's the daughter of the Capsule Corp.'s owner. It made for a nice little cameo and easter egg for readers of Jaco, resolved a major plot point in Jaco its...

Re: Should Toriyama's word be taken as absolute truth?

Agreed. Her entire role in Jaco explains why we've never seen her at the Capsule Corp before: she doesn't live there. Knowing Bulma has a sister that we'll never see adds nothing to any facet of the Dragonball story. If it adds nothing to the story, then why make her Bulma's sister? Why not give he...

The one thing I thought was silly about Dragon Ball Minus is the reveal that Bulma had a sibling that she just somehow never even mentioned during the entirety of Dragon Ball. That was Jaco, but yeah definitely. Where has she been all this time? At least if Toriyama said Tights was Bulma's distant ...

A random nod to Dragon Ball?

I subscribe to a lot of Japanese record labels on youtube, and this morning I saw this music video on my feed by a band called The Wasted. The video includes the band members in manga panel shots and includes a few instances of one of them dressed up in what looks like a Freeza costume. Check it out...
