Yes, they're neighbours it seems, given the way they talk, it's typical! They must at least live nearby if not direct neighbours. That's right, I didn't remember them being in the manga, but they do appear once in volume 34 The warrior who surpassed Goku , in the chapter Son Goku's strange behavior ...

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 ...

Very good remarks and analysis by everyone! I just wanted to add that I always felt Goku's personnality made a leap towards what it is when he's an adult for the 22nd Tenka Ichi Budokai, the one involving Ten Shin Han. After his years training in wilderness, he starts to have that calm and classy fe...

If that can help you, and spare some other members the time to translate these, I can give you a translation of the new French interpretation which is really really good (and will be 100% perfect with the Kanzenban). However, I'm not trained enough in English to render all the natural of it. So keep...

@ Travis Touchdown: Lots and lots of points I didn't really pay attention to, regarding Goku's color schemes! I've always took for granted that it's orange and blue, but there ARE lots of nuances appearing to it. I guess it'll be more strinking as the Kanzenban are published, I'll discover the colo...

Akira Toriyama's final color schemes

Since I'm new here, I hope you won't get mad at me if such a subject already existed, but if it does, it's pretty far away on the list! It's a secret to nobody (I think) that for some characters, Akira Toriyama's choice of colors is different than the colors of the anime. Sometimes there is no doubt...

It's a cool initiative to put the manga as an online format. And it includes colors, though they're not exactly the same than the Kanzenban ones (thanks for the comparison Ssj_Rambo)! As far as I'm concerned, I still prefer the Kanzenban colors, especially regarding the sky and background. It really...
