But I found it very interesting that they left the blood when Freeza killed Krillin.
What blood? There wasn't anything but an explosion.

Re: Dragonball Kai (FUNimation English) Dub: General Discussion

Actually, the reason for that line was because Freeza laughs in the original...with animation that makes it look more like he's talking, rather than laughing. Even the Latino dub changed it to a spoken line.

Re: DragonBall Z Kai Cable TV Version (NickToons) Edits! *Ep 25*

What's especially odd is that we hear references to death and being killed quite often in Avatar: The Last Airbender. It wouldn't be so noticeable if Nicktoons didn't have a tendency to air basically marathons every night next to DBZK. Kinda reminds me of how Cartoon Network used to let Viz get away...

Re: Anyone actually liking Wakamoto better in Kai?

Honestly, I felt Wakamoto thought Cell was a motorcycle rather than an insectoid when doing the first form in Kai. Particularly in the certain noise he makes, which is more emphasized in Kai.

Re: How Dragonball Kai should have looked:

Bones isn't known for doing 100+ episode series'. Also, Toei's busy enough with One Piece as is. It's cheaper and easier to not completely redo Z. And just because something is profitable doesn't mean it's gonna result in top notch animation. Don't forget that even when Z was in its prime in Japan, ...

Re: Anyone actually liking Wakamoto better in Kai?

Wakamoto's age really is showing the difference between the two versions. In Kai there are times when Cell sounds like he is about to get sick. In Z he did a lot better at making Cell sound like a monster. It ain't his age, I'm afraid. It's more among the lines of Kai's directors just not being up ...

Re: Dragonball Kai (FUNimation English) Dub: General Discussion

Okay, so I went back and watch the Japanese versions of Z and Kai for the scene with Vegeta. I'm about to say something I *never* would have thought I'd ever say. I liked the dub scene better. Save for Vegeta's having an echo prior to Goku remembering that Vegeta's actually dead. But that little bit...

Re: Dragonball Kai (FUNimation English) Dub: General Discussion

Nozawa has nothing to do with my views of this. I don't even remember what her recording for Kai sounds like. Schemmel's work just plain hurt my ears. It's consistent with the usual problem I have with him. It doesn't feel like he is acting to me, just that he's making noises. The same, painful noi...

I dunno, he sounded really moany and gravelly here. Let me be clear in saying that this episode was more the final straw that broke the camel's back. Schemmel's voice has always grated on my nerves, this is just one more dime in the wishing well. Compared the scene for Kai in both languages. Sean's...

Re: Dragonball Kai (FUNimation English) Dub: General Discussion

I don't really recall how the dub handled Vegeta's afterlife speech with Goku, but good god, Kai's speech was pretty damn chilling. It's roughly around the same as the Japanese one, but I think it may be simply how it's been put into English words that gives it such...a chilling effect. Even everyon...

Re: "Dragon Ball SD" Coming To Saikyō Jump (UPDATE: Confirmed)

I wonder what SD stands for (PS. I think I know. Add a T in the middle of that teehee :P ) Part of me gets the impression of "Super Deformed" simply because of kid Goku and Kuririn, which isn't an uncommon thing for existing franchises to be basically chibi-fied (like Gundam). But that's just an as...

Heavily processed isn't the exact term I'd use. I think it's "not being fed through a machine" that works here. :p

Re: Dragon Box GT vs. Green Bricks

Honestly, the grain's hardly noticeable on my TV. It really only becomes noticeable when it's not in motion and obviously screencapped from the computer. However, everyone else is right about the singles. The quality issues are very easy to spot.

But Bardock is different from Goku. The only things they have in common is that they hate Freeza and care about their comrads. Bardock is niether pure hearted, nor is he a child in a mans body. Bardock is more like Raditz. Both seem to enjoy conquering planets and destroying them for Freeza before ...

And really... isn't it triumphant that they finally are attacking Freeza and seemingly doing damage?
