Topic: The first time you watched Dragonball?
Replies: 35
Views: 1986

Well, for me, the first time I saw Dragonball and the point to where I actually became interested in took about 5-8 years! But then, I didn't get interested in anime until I was about oh, 13 or so. The first anime I fell in love with was Sailor Moon, the original dub that played on Cartoon Network. ...

Topic: When did you last watch Dragon Ball?

It depends on what I'm doing at the moment as to which episodes I watch. For example, I'm working on a music video right now with Kuririn and Gohan so naturally, I'm focusing on those episodes/scenes at the moment. I find the movies/episodes that feature them the most and go with those for now. I'm ...

The ending of DBZ...hmm, I can't really say where I'd have preferred it to end but I did have quite a few problems with how it did end, mainly involving characterization. 1) In the original enmding, they made Gohan actually become a scholar and seemingly give up fighting. Now, the becoming a scholar...

In Need of some suggestions

I just recently became interested in making music videos, I made a handful of non-DBZ music videos before hand and only have one DBZ video done to date but I'm working on some more. It's these new videos I'm hoping to get some tips on. First off, I'm a major Gohan-Goku fan so I'd love to do a video ...

One Gesture

I've seen a lot of gestures throughout Dragonball and other animes that I think are neat, mainly because they're different from english gestures I'm used to. (Goku calling Gohan over by waving his hand downward was one) but there is one gesture I've seen in nearly every single anime that for the lif...

I think even the little details of things can sometimes be attributed to the way his life changed after getting married. good example of this, I think is his task of catching Bubbles on Kaio-sama's planet. Kaio-sama seemed shocked that it took Goku such a short amount of time to do it. I usually jok...

Maturity of Goku

This topic has been a very involved topic for me and my friend who also loves Dragonball Z. As you follow the series from Dragonball to Dragonball Z and even GT, I love the maturity and development of all the characters but mainly Goku. In my opinion I think he changed a lot from the end of Dragonba...

Confusion on Translation

Hi all. I recently got the latest 'uncut' disc available here, Back from the Dead. I love getting them uncut and I finally get to see this saga in original Japanese which is always cool. But I have to admit as I watched these three episodes in their original Japanese format, I was baffled by one sce...

Gohan's Dragon Friend

A few times, namely in the movies and the Garlic Junior Saga, Gohan is shown with a dragon friend which the dub calls "Icarus." I believe he showed up in the second or third movie. So...where does he go after the Garlic Junior Saga? He showed up in Gohan's dream in the Trunks Saga but aside from tha...

Replies: 56
Views: 3638

When Dragonball Z first aired here, they completely butchered the first episode, taking out Gohan's original introduction so that we first see him when Goku arrives at the Kame House. I know this follows the manga version but I actually prefers his introduction in the woods because you get to see hi...

First DBZ AMV

I'm fairly new to AnimeMusicVideos so I hope I did this right. I've made a few music videos before but this was my first DBZ one. I have a few more I'm working on. Hope you all like it. Since I'm a Gohan fan, it focuses on him: http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_videoinfo.php?v=105007 U...

o_o It's the same word, different language. I know it's kinda odd but even though it translates to the same word, hearing ' Daddy' carries more emotion for me. Can't tell you why because I wish I knew. Likewise, hearing 'iie' instead of 'no' tends to carry more weight for me. I really can't tell yo...

For me, I tend to like both versions, for different reasons. First off, yes, I tend to watch the dub more than the sub but I refuse to watch it editted. I only watch it uncut. I hate when they edit stuff out, mainly coming from the point of view of a writer: if I write something a certain way it's f...

I could go on forever about this topic but I'll try and not to. I have my own theories about Gohan and I realize they might be not what others think but hey, everyone is entitled to their own, right? That said, here are my thoughts: Gohan, in my opinion, has the most potential, hands down. While he ...
