Re: Kai Episode 106 (25 May 2014)

69 is starting to look like one hell of a troll number thrown out by someone with a mind worthy of Roshi.

Re: Yamcha reference in Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

I always took the episode as a reference to Sue Storm, and that's certainly where the unofficial title comes from.

Re: Toonami will air the Cooler Movie on May 24

Dragon Ball is a bit more liberal in its reuse of background music than Z is.

Re: Characters never named

I believe that there are plenty of Freeza's soldiers yet to be named.

Re: Kai Episode 106 (25 May 2014)

Probably the best episode of the new Kai run yet, but I groaned at Videl's "I'm healed!" dialogue. I half-expected a "tee-hee!" in there somewhere.

It's an animation cel.
There's a big difference between a cel made for promotional purposes and one used the actual production of a show. Just compare the cel of Yamcha, Oolong, and Bulma to the one with Bulma and Goku.

Re: Kai Episode 106 (25 May 2014)

Sorry for getting a little off-topic, but let me say; It is very unfair to point out how Kikuchi lacks in the variety of his musical styles because Sumitomo has been involved with anime only a few times before, and you're comparing Kikuchi's DB score with other anime scores. Kikuchi does use distin...

Re: Characters that never interact

Yajirobe interacts with Vegeta in the Saiyan Saga, but never again after it, thus depriving us of a potentially very interesting scene (prideful Vegeta interacting with the guy who "defeated" him, who happens to be a huge coward). Even Toei knew better than to punish us all with any real appearance...

If it's a Candy Cloud, why has Yajirobe never eaten the mother cloud that all Kinto Uns come from?

Re: Toonami will air the Cooler Movie on May 24

There was one noticeable edit (well, noticeable if you were watching the double feature side-by-side with it). After the sun is destroyed, the screen fades to black and stays that way for about 5 seconds; in the TV version, those 5 seconds were completely edited out. It's really weird that that's t...

Re: Toonami will air the Cooler Movie on May 24

Sorry about that. The blood in my ears led me to believe that the opening was at least sort of related to "Head Cha-La".

The half-baked guitar version of "Head Cha-La" was awful, though.

Re: Why did FUNimation spell Freeza with an "i"?

I think, when localizing and when dubbing, proper names and pronunciation should be absolutely be maintained. However, l must also confess, the issue of pronunciation, spelling, and proper names have never been a huge issue for me. It is an issue, yes, but not a huge one. It will never be as big an...

Re: How are you watching Kai?

It's usually about two days before my chosen group releases their subtitles, so I'll grab that and actually sit back and watch it on my TV properly. There's two groups who are doing this series and one is absolutely garbage. Baffles me as to why people engage them at all. They're the type of morons...

Re: Would Nappa and Vegeta have eaten the humans?

As with many things, I look to G.I. Joe for guidance: "No way. Given their choice, animals always choose real food. Humans taste terrible."-Scarlett (And before you ask, yes, Scarlett would have considered Nappa and Vegeta to be animals, or at least a proper facsimile.) Joking aside, the same tropes...

It depends on if this predates the Mutaito years or not (in which Roshi doesn't have the sunglasses).
