Re: Is Dragon Ball Z Kai any good?

Here's the basic points of view as far as I see them: If you have seen DBZ dubbed in English, then Kai is much better than Z. 20 years of practice and a more mature Funimation has produced a much more accurate and better acted dub than the original Z. If you have seen DBZ in Japanese, then Kai is a ...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 87

Yamamuro's design for Caulifla popped up in that article, too: http://i.imgur.com/KIK9wlH.png I really like it. Those back dimples are winning me over. Other than the standard Yamamuro hair, the only thing I don't like is that head-on shot. It almost looks like Tsuji drew the ears oddly enough. The...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters" Parts DVD/Blu-ray Thread

After waiting, I finally got my copy of Part 1 today! Time to binge! Finally got mine on Monday and it's actually better than I was expecting. The dub is massively improved as expected from modern Funimation, but what really surprised me was the color correction not being nearly as bad as I thought...

Re: Could the forum have a like/karma system?

I really don't think a karma system would be a good idea. It would create a whole host of problems with people posting things simply to garner karma and would ruin the ground level communication that this site fosters. Never mind how arguments would be boiled down to whoever gets the most upvotes be...

Re: Could the green tint be intentional?

I hadn't actually considered trying that as a solution to remove the tint before. I might have been a bit hyperbolic in saying that it's unworkable if something as simple as that can fix a good portion of the issues.

Re: Could Beerus kill someone immortal?

It depends on what the series defines immortality as. If we assume that it is defined only as how Zamasu was represented, then it is possible that Beerus could not be able to kill an immortal person. However, Dragon Ball isn't exactly known for its tight logical consistency, so I assume if that situ...

There was also a third way of drawing head-on noses when characters were grimicing by drawing a "v" with skin folds above it.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 81

Jin Inaba didn't work on episode 33 and they don't look like Yamamuro to me. It's probably a case where, much like episode 60, one nameless animator from the various studios involved just happened to be pretty talented. how do you do to recognize traits or styles? haha I've only get to recognize Ta...

I'm surprised no one has brought this up yet, but in addition to an altered filter, I think the NEP also has an altered color palette.

It's just repackaging older characters so SJW's and the writers can pat themselves on the back. This is rhetoric that I challenge you to back up.
