Re: DragonBall: Uranai & DragonBall Ôgon no Senshi

I got Bulma. Pretty much as close as it could get, I'd say. (*is female, scientist type of person*)

Re: Vegeta's Last Words

I guess I always imagined that despite his acknowledging Goku as "#1" Vegeta would continue to view him as a rival, if in a somewhat lighter, more playful fashion. To me, any subsequent "challenge" type statements are like Vegeta saying that sure, Goku's better, and he's not going to obsess over def...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Just ordered Dragon Ball (VizBig) vol. 2-5. Also picked up BT3 from the clearance bin at Best Buy last week. (Though I have yet to play it, hm...too distracted by HeartGold. XD)

Re: What keeps you coming back to DragonBall?

I started watching DBZ (I think around the Cell arc) when I was about 10 years old. Somehow it managed to suck me in, even though I don't think it would have been my "typical" taste at the time. I became sort of emotionally connected to it, reading all these fanfics, then doing art and writing my ow...

Re: SSJ3 eyes question

Yeah, I've always used "teal" to describe the color. When I do any drawings (and have limited access to colors), coloring with 100% blue always looks a lot weirder than 100% green.

Re: Which will you get Dragon Ball Z Kai Part 1 or Dragon Box 3?

Definitely planning on getting Box 3. (Though I still haven't bought the second one!) Whether (or when) I get Kai will probably depend a lot on how the dub turns out.

Re: Your Dragonball Wishes

I would wish to be the world's most awesome physicist?? And/or maybe for great endurance. Then I could give famous lectures, running from city to city in-between. Yup, that sounds good. I would probably have to wish for something similar for my boyfriend though, or else he'd be so intellectually and...

Re: What are some weird assumptions that you've made?

My introduction to DBZ (and DB in general) was actually through getting one of those Burger King toys. (Which I got three or so years before I even saw DBZ, since I didn't have cable at the time.) I saw that he was labeled as "Vegeta" and assumed that it was short for "Vegetable," which was clearly ...

Re: Name Puns

"Big Gete Star" = "big" (OK, that one's obvious) + "gete" (from getemono , or "cobbled together", which perfectly describes it) + "star" Admittedly when I first watched movie 6 I just assumed "Big Gete Star" was supposed to sound a bit like "Spaghetti Star." (And to me the idea was supported by the...

Re: Most emotional scene in Dragon Ball

Sarcasm? What's that taste like? Not surprisingly, exactly what I thought. On a more serious note, aside from a number of scenes that have already been mentioned here (both of Vegeta's deaths, the Goku/Goten goodbye scene), there is a particular panel of the manga that just gets me every time. I ca...

Re: SSJ3 eyes question

If you think about it, all SSj's in each level should have visible pupils. It's only the irises whose color is changed... pupils don't even have an actual color (you just look into the darkness inside the eye as it were). Wow, what a good scientific point, there...makes me embarrassed that I didn't...

Re: My DB New Manga (In Work)

Yeah, I'd love to see some art samples too! Sounds interesting! As for the title, well, based on the translations I like the first one. I think it has the best ring. My second choice would be the second one. (Again, this is just based on the translations since I can't read Japanese...and I have no i...

Re: How did you decide/get your avatar?

I'm just using a picture I drew (and did a little coloring to make it look nice). I would've rather used a drawing I did of Vegeta, but it didn't shrink to 80x80 very gracefully. Maybe sometime later, if I do some work on it.
(The actual, pre-shrinking, pre-coloring drawing.)

Re: SSJ3 eyes question

I guess I always figured the pupils were included for the more dramatic moments (perhaps in addition to or when they coincide with close-ups), and otherwise disregarded or forgotten. (Like so many other details -- generally at least.) That would at least cover the "Goku first shows off SSJ3" and the...

Here's one.
