Re: Gohan's sudden outfit change?

Again, it doesn't seem too far-fetched to me that she should change into a more practical outfit for battle observing and assistance, so it's never bothered me that she changed from a dress to shorts. And it's the same way in the manga since she was shown in her dress while trying to use the scouter...

Re: Why did they cut it?

Very interesting. I have no idea what it is, but if I had to make a guess, I would say it was produced by the network rather than by the series, which would explain why it would not be on home video releases.

Re: Why Majin Buu is the worst villain in DBZ

I only fault it for bringing an abrupt end to Gohan's life as a teenaged superhero. He could have done so much more with that as the anime shows!

Re: Why Majin Buu is the worst villain in DBZ

like watching f lying Looney T oons battle it out. Am I the only one who doesn't see this as a bad thing? I only see this as a bad thing because it's Looney Tunes , not Looney Toons , a pretty common mistake. Other than that, I'm generally okay with the Buu Saga, as I'm more of a fan of early DB an...

Re: Gohan's sudden outfit change?

Well, since we're on that, there's also the only slightly less jarring example of Bulma's hair growing out in, like, two episodes. Up through episode 18, she still has the short 'do she had at the beginning of the Saiya-jin arc. Then, two episodes later, her hair is suddenly long! Again, there's no ...

Re: Star Trek V Reference in DBZ

Hmm, this conversation made me go back and look at Mike's old videos for the first time since they were new, and, I know this is coming close to veering off topic, but I just couldn't help but remark on the continuing idiocy of YouTube commenters. On video #3, one complaining commenter, when asked b...

Re: Gohan's sudden outfit change?

It's not really a goof per se, it's just a bit hard to swallow as it is in the anime. Like bussani said, in the manga, his two appearances were spaced out enough that it was conceivable that this occurred. In the anime, Gohan and Piccolo are training in one scene, Kamesennin summons Shen Long in the...

Re: DBZU and DBZU2 seems to be officially gone now.

Yeah, DBZ Uncensored was one of my favorite sites back in the day, and alongside Planet Namek, DaizenshuuEX, and Ginga Giri Giri were the only Dragon Ball sites I regularly frequented in those far off days of, well, a decade ago back when I was a wild and rambunctious teenager trying for the life of...

Could the Saiya-jin Have Obtained Immortality in the Anime?

Here's a little oddity I'd been contemplating for a while and thought I'd share with you guys. As far as we know, there is no problem in the manga, but, in the anime's timeline, it occurs to me that Vegeta and Nappa, even had they succeeded in getting the dragonballs and not killing Piccolo, would h...

Re: The Smartest Z-Fighter

I'd generally say Piccolo, especially towards the end of the series after he'd remerged with Kami-sama. But nearly every major fighting character has shown signs of brilliance in varying ways. Goku and Vegeta's fighting instincts and analysis prove them very intelligent in that area. Obviously Gohan...

Haven't had a chance to pop in, and wanted to contribute more than just this, but I have to at least let you know how fucking awesome the video was. I know how difficult it can be to make videos for YouTube that point out this horribly inconsequential stuff that interests only a few people on this ...

Re: Ordering the Dragon Box from Right Stuf

Haha, got mine for about $38. I'd been putting off preordering my Dragon Box. Glad I saw this posted on the main page! What with the discount and the special I'm paying quite a bit less than I paid for Dragon Box 1!

Re: Tenshinhan from outer space?

Haha, it looks more like, due to character design changes, he became slightly less "chibi," and his body became a bit more realistically sized in proportion to his head.

Re: Star Trek V Reference in DBZ

Haha, someone on my video page made the same reference (was it you, laserkid?), and I'm still laughing my ass off over it since that line was probably my favorite one from the whole film. As for it being only a general Trek reference, I still think it's directly related to Star Trek V for all the re...

Geez, really? All this hate for 28th Budokai-era Videl? I thought the flapper-esque haircut was totally hot! Granted, I loved the ponytail look too. The Gohan-inspired haircut took a bit of getting used to, but I ended up liking that too. Let's see, as for a design I didn't like, I sometimes don't l...
