Re: Has being a fan of Dragon Ball inspired you to start training in martial arts?

I'm surprised nobody Tweeted this thread at me! Hi! I'm like one of four people in all of online Dragon Ball fandom that studies martial arts!! I have experience in Taekwondo and Jeet Kune Do. I'm currently training in Brazilian Jiujitsu. The rest of this post is long as it covers my Dragon Ball ins...

Re: Jason Douglas Confirms Funimation Dub?

It could very well have been an intentional "accident" to stir the pot a little bit. A good chunk of fans are pretty frustrated that there's no official release still and it's been a year already. However, if they go, "Hey. Post this. Let a few people see it. Then, take it down," it gets people exci...

Re: What would you want in A Kai of the original Dragon Ball

I'd honestly just want a few movies similar to Path to Power. I know some people do the like how Path to Power was executed, but I loved the crap out of it and I'd love to see a couple more made to round out the arcs up through the 23rd Budokai.

Re: Yet another 'New' character based off Gokus design

I'm 100% okay with Goku Black. All the other Son Goku look-alikes were created in the 90s and I experienced those the majority of those characters for the first time between 1998 and 2002. With anywhere up to 18 years of separation between someone like Tullece and Goku Black, I personally don't feel...

Re: Whoops! Sean Schemmel made a slip! Buu Saga Kai Confirme

What episode have they gotten to on toonami right now anyway? Has Cell's second form even appeared yet? I think Cell is only making his first appearance in the next episode. :| Jeez... They're really slow with this. Aside from the few times they've done marathons (of previously aired material), the...

Re: Your Fandom X Years Later

The story of my fandom is more the story of how Dragon Ball is the catalyst for my growth as a martial artist. I'm someone who had some minor exposure to DBZ when it was in syndication (in 199X) and then got the DBZ fever during its initial run on Toonami (53 dubbed episodes & 3 dubbed movies). I ha...

Re: DB outfits and hair styles you could wear in the real wo

There's a few instances in cover art where Son Goku is wearing normal clothing that you could emulate the style of even if it's not the exact design or pattern.

Re: For those that watched the dub AND sub before reading ma

It's really difficult to explain. More than anything else, it's the Japanese voices "speaking" some nebulous, formless, incomprehensible approximation of English. Since you can read and process text faster than you can speak it aloud (or hear someone else speak it), I think that's part of what cont...

Re: Please just no!

I'm looking forward to it. Arale is sure to bring a comedic feel reminiscent of early Dragon Ball. Same. The majority of my initial exposure to Arale comes from Dragon Ball and it'll be nice to see her again. I never imagined we would see her hanging out with Goku again outside of a Toriyama drawin...

Re: Correlation between purchasing/owning & increased knowle

I made a comment about a recent Reddit poll that showed that most people there were over 18 but they also pirated. That caused me to call them out (on Twitter) for being old enough to get jobs but too cheap for a $20 Blu-ray set. It got RT'd by @KaiserNeko and I got a bunch of excuses back from peop...

Hey, everyone! I was just watching someone play a Pokémon puzzle battle game when it occurred to me that there hasn't been a puzzle battle game for Dragon Ball (as far as I'm aware). It got me thinking: Would people play a game like that? Imagine it being sort of like Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo ,...

Oh, man! If these were Region A Blu-rays I'd import them and watch them in raw Japanese.

Re: Sean Schemmel's mysterious tweet

Even if its Buu Kai, I am incredibly worried about it now that its taken so long. Rewind a year ago and I'm sure Buu Kai would do pretty well here in the states but now that Super is out, its all the rage now and Buu Kai seems all but forgotten. I hope I'm wrong but I'm anticipating Buu Kai to be a...

Re: Sean Schemmel's mysterious tweet

Didn't Chris Sabat recently make some noise regarding recent specials that were never dubbed? Maybe they were one his mind for a reason. It's a long shot because I don't imagine Schemmel losing his voice in Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return, but anything can happen, I guess.
