Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I'm about 50/50 on this. While I'm sort of rolling my eyes at how obvious pandering this is; I'm also excited to see Toriyama's take on the infamous villain.

Re: Dragon Box Footage used on DBZ Single?

Ok please don't hit me for this theory, but maybe this footage was sort of the first step for Funimation getting the Dragonbox masters. They announced the Dragonboxes several years later; but we don't know how long they actually had the rights/footage for.

Re: The Transformations That Should Have Been

Honestly I don't think there would really be any point to Pan going Super in GT. With the way GT was set up to revolve around Goku would Pan being an SSJ really make any difference except for her maybe getting an extra punch in? If anything her being stuck in her base for makes her stand out more as...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

I'm honestly down for this . I know it's a turn off for some, but I can't wait to sit back with some popcorn and watch some stupid overblown fan service for fun.

And no I'm not being sarcastic.

Do the Dragonboxes colors look any better on OLED?

One thing many people note about the Dragonbox release of the series is that the colors look fairly faded and pale. However I noticed when watching on a CRT via component the colors seemed to be a tad less washed out. I was wondering if the same was true of an OLED TV? If there's anyone here who own...

Re: Funimation's "remastering" process

The way I understand it, Funimation used an automated process to "remaster" DBZ for the Orange/Blu Brick releases, but how did this process actually work? For the longest time I assumed they upscaled and filtered their old 480p footage, but now I'm not sure. For the record the masters for the orang...

Re: So has Freeza become "The Joker" of the Dragonball franchise

Well yeah. As I stated he's always been the recurring villain of the series so it makes sense that when Toei decided to bring back a major villain for their BOG sequel they chose Freeza instead of Cell or Buu. Yeah and him showing again in the tournament of power as the only villain was unique to s...

Re: For those who hate the Faulconer soundtrack, are there any scenes you like better than with the JP soundtrack?

Look let me make this abundantly clear: I have NO doubt that there exists people who genuinely like Faulconer as music unto itself. I'm not discounting the EXISTENCE of those people: more power to them. Sincerely. I simply have a hard time believing that those people outweigh those for whom it's pr...

Re: Does Nozawa have an understudy?

But it's still a long way off. The only reason they went with CGI Cushing is because Peter Cushing is just one of those people no one looks like. If they could have just hired a look a like they would have. And even then, Star Wars is a multi-billion dollar franchise; DB is not going to get that sor...

Dude, don't you think you're being a tad harsh? It undeniably has a cheap, rushed sound to it but it still has good compositions to it. I don't see how anyone could listen to Paikuhan's theme, "Gohan Angers or Piccolo's theme and say "this is bad'. *Cues up all three* Yeah no, this is bad . Gohan A...

Re: Does Nozawa have an understudy?

I'd hate to say it, but I'm afraid she may not need one. I've not liked bringing this up around fans of works whose voice actors are as iconic as Mrs. Nozawa, but it's a fact that's going to have to be addressed sooner or later. Voice acting as a career has maybe a decade and a half left of life in...

Re: So has Freeza become "The Joker" of the Dragonball franchise

Honestly to me it's seemed like Freeza has always been " the villain". His presence stretched pretty much across the whole story, even backwards. He was part of the reason Goku got sent to Earth, he's mentioned in Movie 3, his return is what leads into the Cell arc, he got given a brother who appear...

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

I think that comes from the fact most people treat kids as dumber than what they actually are and usually hold them back 2-3 years than what they could be capable of . If I had a dollar for every time I thought as a kid "FFS I wasn't born yesterday, how dumb do they think I am" or saw someone with t...

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

It's worth noting that a study was done that showed being attracted to post-pubescent teens was fairly common it's just that people don't act on it whether for legal reasons, or moral reasons. Some people are mature for their age. That doesn't make them adults. I know people still mature into adult...

Re: I think it's time to admit Gohan is a terrible character

Most hate I've seen towards Gohan comes from Toonami fans who just don't like the idea of the characters settling down and like to view the series as a "HARD COREZ ACTIONZ series where the characters sit on their head all day waiting for the next big bad to show up.

I don't hate the Faulconer score but the only real standout placements to me now are Cells theme playing as he walks up to 16's head before crushing it and that atmospheric track that plays when Gohan is first teaching Videl about ki. Ugh what is that track? It goes all the way back to the Freeza ar...
