Re: Episode #0400 (27 March 2016)

Man, hard to believe you guys have been doing this for 400 episodes! During the original run of Dragon Ball, you'd be well into GT by now! :P If you go by years, then yeah, they would be in GT territory, but by number of episodes no, they are at Z ep 247, Goku teaching the fusion dance lol. Aw crap...

Idainaru Son Goku Densetsu (Let's Play by Frankomatic)

I wasn't sure if this was supposed to go in the Video Games sub-forum or the Fan Created Works sub-forum, but I figured since it's about a video game, it should probably go here. So, long-time Let's Player and my good Twitter friend, Frankomatic, is currently doing a Let's Play of Idainaru Son Goku ...

Re: A couple of rare commercials

Neat! It's always interesting to see the show as it originally aired, and by that, I mean which commercials aired during the original airing. Like Successoroffate said, I wasn't expecting some of those companies to be the sponsor for GT.

The one for the first DBZ film was interesting as well.

Nice rendition of a classic Kikuchi song. Very catchy.

Re: Opinions on Pieces of Music - V4!

Very relaxing. The sound of the bell could've been done a little better in my opinion, but otherwise, the rest of the instrumentals are pretty solid. The strings at 1:36 are a nice touch as well.

Re: Opinions on Pieces of Music - V4!

Very epic song. That choir that kicks in at 2:10 is majestic. It almost seems out of place to have in Dragon Ball, but it still fits somehow. Regardless, it's a pretty awesome song.

Re: Are you satisfied with all the releases we have gotten?

Only thing I would've preferred is Funimation releasing the DB and GT Dragon Boxes in America. Otherwise, it's nice to be able to watch 99% of the franchise for reasonable prices as Sintzu said. Plus, you have a choice of how to watch certain parts of the series with the different releases they did ...

Re: Opinions on Pieces of Music - V4!

It's an okay track. I like the piano part, but the rest of the song drones on a little too much for my liking. Just my opinion.

Re: People you realized never came back.

I just realized tonight that you don't see Kaioshin and the Elder Kai anymore in Super. They appeared in the first few episodes and then just kind of disappeared. I wonder if Whis and Beerus are meant to be their replacements for the "overseeing gods" character roles in the story.

Will Goku or Vegeta use the original SSJ forms again in DBS?

This topic brought up the question of whether we will see Super Saiyan God again since the introduction of Super Saiyan Blue. That got me to thinking though...will the original Super Saiyan transformations, Super Saiyan 1 through 3, ever be used again in Dragon Ball Super? It's clear that Goku stoo...

Re: What was the first piece of content you saw of GT?

Pretty sure I first saw it whenever Toonami in America first started airing GT because I kept up with Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z every week, so I saw the advertisements for it leading up to its debut in that TV block. That means I probably watched Episode 16 first, which Wikipedia says was on Nov...

Re: All Time Favorite Piece of Dragon Ball Music

Oh man, that's a tough decision. If I have to go with one though, I'll choose Hikari no Tabi. I almost always get goosebumps when listening to it. Kageyama and KUKO nail their performances in that song. There's lots of emotion in the song, but it's also a song that gives off hope. Bardock may have l...

Super Mario Bros. Z reboot

I saw an old thread in the Fan-Created Works subforum for the original Super Mario Bros. Z series, so I assume it's okay to make a thread about this. Mark Haynes, a.k.a. Alvin-Earthworm just released the first episode of a reboot of the original Super Mario Bros. Z series. There's improved sound qua...

Re: DB and DBZ: Parts vs Whole

Since a lot of people are bringing the action in Z, does anybody else feel like Dragon Ball has better fights and Z has better action ? Yes. I think the choreography of the fights in Dragon Ball are superior to the ones in Z. Goku vs. Tenshinhan, for example, I think is one of the better fights in ...

Re: Will Super Saiyan God be used again?

If we're talking strictly Dragon Ball Super, I'm going to make a bold prediction and say no. I think Goku will stick to Super Saiyan Blue and maybe even have one or more new transformations beyond SSJB. I do like Super Saiyan God though and hope it does make at least one more non-flashback appearanc...

Re: DB and DBZ: Parts vs Whole

Don't get me wrong, the first half has iconic moments as well. Most notably Goku punching a hole through Piccolo Daimao. But comparing the two, it''s clear that the original DB never reaches the same heights that Z reaches. Why do you feel that is? Do feel that may also be the reason why most peopl...

Re: Opinions on Pieces of Music - V4!

Yamamoto plagiarism aside, "The Ebb and the Flow" is actually a well-done piece. It's kind of reminiscent of Kikuchi's soundtrack for Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. I like the violins that kick in right around 48 seconds and the calm melody that comes in a few seconds later. It's very theatrical. Ne...
