Re: A pattern I noticed with the women in Dragon Ball.

Neither Snow or her mother were bitchy and/or whiny, and if you want to throw in filler, Colonel Violet and Husky were more "in it for the money" than anything else (with the former being played as having waited for the Red Ribbon Army to collapse for quite some time). And if you want to get to the ...

Knowing the religious extremists in this country, it seems likelier that Funimation knew what Kami means, and left it untranslated on purpose.

Re: Screen shot comparison DB ep137

The two Piccolo Jr. sets are a bit episode heavy, as they are two of the sets with over 300 minutes of material across their two discs.

Re: Kai Episode 105 (18 May 2014)

You can cut and paste my previous episode posts, but with one big addition: the editing when Goku discusses how weird Spopovitch's ki is is simply way too quick, with virtually no time for the reaction shots to Gohan.

Re: Toonami will air the Cooler Movie on May 24

I can't say I'm sure about these accusations of royalties in this context. I'm not saying I'm an expert, but it just doesn't make sense to me based on evidence I've seen in throughout my life. To take an example, there's a show I loved called The Wonder Years. I grew up watching it. To anyone who d...

Re: Manga UK picks up Dragon Ball

It's not censored (the episodes, at least-the first movie is), but otherwise you're generally correct. EDIT: It should be noted that Toei isn't exactly known for playing well with their licensees even when the license holder has a stated desire not to screw over consumers with multiple piss-poor rel...

Re: Toonami will air the Cooler Movie on May 24

I don't see why missing the "old" Funimation would be viewed as a positive-they started out as sloppy and barely professional, and kind of lucked into the massive success of DBZ on Cartoon Network. It's a miracle, frankly, that Funimation behaves with a modicum of professionalism, even if they frank...

Re: Kai Episode 105 (18 May 2014)

I'm going to assume that Vic Mignogna will cover it since he's one of FUNimation's few voice actors that has the right pitch for these songs. For both songs actually. We'd also get to make "Captain Kirk sings" jokes here (Mignogna stars in and is one of the primary creative forces of one of the two...

Re: How famous is Masako Nozawa in Japan?

I'd equate her to the Japanese version of Tress MacNeille. Both have been doing the VA thing for decades at this point. Both have voiced major and supporting roles in pretty significant animated shows. Both specialize in playing children and old women characters. Yep, works for me. Tress MacNeille ...

Re: What should Toei focus on after Kai?

The chances of a major American studio getting any property produced with even a modicum of quality and fealty to the source material is pretty low these days, and it drops to pretty much zero when it's based on a popular cartoon. Dragon Ball Evolution is much more in line with the norm for animatio...

The only correct answer, of course, is Chun-Li.

But, otherwise, I'll accept #18.

Re: Should Toei stop using the original Dragon Ball characte

Not at all. If it keeps going I would prefer to keep the characters we know. I don't think Dragon Ball would stop if Nozawa died (hope that's not for a long time), it's a long running franchise. Just because the original voice dies doesn't mean anything will stop i.e. Mel Blanc and Looney Tunes. It...

Re: Kai Episode 104 (11 May 2014)

I'm not warming to the new voice of Mr. Satan at all. I feel the same. Unshō Ishizuka does a okay enough job, but his "stage persona" voice doesn't sound as intimidating as Gouri's did. Likewise. He's not bad at all, it's just unfortunate that he sounds subpar to his predecessor. I struggle to list...

Re: Did DBZ Need More Sense of Loss?

Goku lost it pretty badly when Krillin was killed the first time, and with the added pain of knowing that he can't be wished back, that seems sufficient enough to push Goku over the edge in my mind.

I can think of a thread here that kind of supports why there isn't an OT board on Kanzenshuu: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=27224 There's not a lot of restraint going on in that thread, IMO, in regard to the not- DB/Z/GT subject matter, and I could totally see worse things in an OT forum *cough*politics*cough...

Better pacing in this episode, but the music is still lame, and I'm not warming to the new voice of Mr. Satan at all.

Re: Why is DBOX 5 so cheap?

It's still in stock at Amazon US. And it's about two and a half dollars more than what I paid for it three years ago. I would absolutely love to hear why the print run is still in stock at a major retailer, brand new.

Re: Have you listened to every episode of the podcast?

Yes, though I've been listening for so long that it wasn't anywhere near as daunting to listen from Episode 1 and work my way up to the current episodes.
