Maybe 4:3 was indeed a plan all along. As far as I know, Japanese releases about Dragon Ball never cared to crop anything, it doesn't seem like they want to lose image. As some other members pointed, it might be because on TV, an HD broadcast has to be widescreen to be allowed. I'm kind of hoping, e...

One problem I have with the Catalan dub is that sometimes they'll use the Japanese screams, and with Goku it's very noticeable. Serious? This is a problem to you? The French dub does this all the time, and I've always thought it was a great thing about it, because the Japanese can scream, man, they...

Thank you to all members who post complex analysis/reviews, it's really interesting, as you're aware of much more details than the casual fan. By the way, I didn't see all episodes of DBZ, and most of the ones I've seen were like 15 years ago. You guys mention the Kikoho being "corrected" I think. W...

There are indeed 4 galaxies, except in the movies storyline which has Broly destroying one, which makes 3. The movie ends without any hint that this galaxy will be revived. However, the movies storyline is set apart from the manga (obviously) and even the anime, because of the fact they can never be...

These moves are obviously needed for him to launch the attack, it's not just a warming up, nor a diversion since Freezer doesn't see him, so the theory of a way to concentrate energy is good. Let's have some fun studying the subject, here is a funny and complex theory I have, but remember it's so ov...

We'll have to wait and see. Graphically, the environment doesn't seem to have gone through massive changes, so we'll have to wait and see about their size. The characters' movements seem to have improved, including the look always directed at the opponent when blocking, etc... It really adds somethi...

Here in France, it's pretty hard to find a girl that's interested in Dragon Ball. Actually, in the manga sections of the shops, it's often boys you see anyway. Anyway people will often have a wrong image of it because of the old dubbed/censored version we have here for TV, which makes anyone will at...

Yes, they're neighbours it seems, given the way they talk, it's typical! They must at least live nearby if not direct neighbours.

Nothing wrong with the movies. No idea why they have a reputation for being bad. Do the movies really have a strong reputation for being bad? I've never noticed that much hate for them in the fanbase. I don't think the movies really have a BAD reputation. I guess there are flaws that are often poin...

That's some cool news, but it's true that I'm surprised of the way they release it. I would have imagined whole season packs this time, and more possibly more episodes per Blu-Ray. A regular 40-minutes TV show puts 4 episodes, so considering the Dragon Ball Kai are 20-minutes (well, a little more, b...

I haven't seen it in full, but the driving episode seemed pretty funny. That crazy woman Piccolo has with him is really something, which doesn't seem that way at first!! Otherwise, I don't know if we can consider that as a filler since it only lasts a few seconds, but there's an unexisting moment in...

As a little kid, I watched DBZ. I think I owe it much for learning me what was good and evil, and why good's better (I mean I'm no angel, but I'm certainly not a bad person)! I think the manga and anime alike show enough situations when you can see how bad it turns for you when you're a bad guy, oft...

I'm more partial to the anime's colors, but the idea that the characters actually change into different outfits definately makes them less static. The only thing with that is you have to wonder if Toriyama actually put that much thought into it or if he just forgot his color scheme. I mean, he did ...

Thanks for posting those!

It's interesting to have these little crossovers, let's hope they continue through all of the Kai series, as the characters evolve. Nothing to worry about I guess, why would they stop anyway?

To me, the new music is probably one of the main positive points about Kai, but then there's hardly a point that I don't like more in Kai than in the original Z. It's simple, I can't stand watching a Z episode, I can't stand missing a Kai episode. About the music, if they keep up the good work like ...

If it's in volume 4, I guess by 'they' you mean Yamcha and Jacky Chun. I think he means when Goku tells Kuririn about how he and Yamcha were about even when they first fought, after Kuririn asks if Yamcha is strong. Oh sorry, I misinterpreted! Then it goes: Krilin: "Hey Goku, that Yamcha guy seems ...
