Never did one of these so uhh, I'm Lupin Vegeta! :mrgreen:

Been a fan of Dragon Ball since the late 90s when I started watching the Ocean Dub on YTV. I think it was the Goku/Vegeta fight that got me hooked. The Goku/Frieza fight took it a step further and turned me into a straight up fanboy for years to come. In the early-mid 2000s I was active on sites like the official Funimation chat, Pojo, and the one I spent by far the most time on - MyFavoriteGames (MFG Forums). The Budokai and Budokai Tenkaichi series kept me invested in Dragon Ball content in the following years but as I couldn't afford a next-gen console at the time I stopped getting the games when Burst Limit came out and kind of stopped caring about Dragon Ball for a while as a result.

By the time Battle of Gods came out, I didn't even care enough to watch it immediately. When I did watch it, I absolutely loved it. It was also around this time that I started watching the Japanese subbed material alongside the English dub. The fact that the first two seasons of Super were movie retellings (among other things) kept me from starting Super until deep into its run. When I heard about the ToP arc, the concept sounded like the ultimate Dragon Ball arc and I decided to finally start watching Super so I could experience it. By the time I caught up the show was at episode 111 and from then on I followed the series live. It made me feel like a kid again. I hadn't felt that pure week-to-week new Dragon Ball episode hype since I was in grade school. Came at an opportune time since I've been struggling with depression and needed a distraction from negative thoughts. I'm sad that it's over but with the new movie (and artstyle) on the way I couldn't be more excited and I'm so glad Dragon Ball is on top of the world again.

Hi everyone! :wave:

My name is João, I'm 33 years old and I'm from Portugal. I follow the Dragon Ball anime since before it became a huge success here in my country (during the 90's), meaning that I started watching the original Dragon Ball series (the one that describes kid Goku's adventures around the world in search of the seven magical balls) from its very beginning. It turns out that I immediately loved it and got attached to it, so I kept watching it throughout the following series: Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and, more recently, Dragon Ball Super, including all their movies and specials. Unfortunately, I never read the original manga (the one that covers Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z's stories), even though I'm aware of the many differences between it and its anime counterpart.

Likewise, I know this website since it was still named Kanzentai and I've been a regular visitor of both the site and the forum, often coming back to keep track of all the Dragon Ball-related news and the discussion they have originated here in the forum. Despite this, I was merely a passive reader all over the years and it was not until the last couple of weeks that I decided to finally create an account here. That brings me to this very day, where I'm posting my first comment introducing myself and promising to give my best to contribute in a democratic and respectful way to all the Dragon Ball discussions brought about in this forum.

Best regards and "see" you around! :thumbup:

Hi Guys !
I am didigoku, i am 27 years old and i'm just a simple fan of Dragon Ball since my childhood from France.
As long as i remember, i have never taken a time to introduce myself. So here i am.
I used to be a great fan of Dragon Ball and and i have been following Kanzenshuu for a long time, since 2006 now. I still remember when i used to type this URL "daizex.com". The main sections i mostly read were the Music Database, the Lyrics and the Rumor guides. By the way, thanks to the Webmaster for always giving reliable information :)

But since i have some other passion, i now follow Dragon Ball news from far.
Besides, in my opinion, i think lot of Dragon Ball related products have known a lack of quality, then made me losing some interest, whatever it was about : new anime series/movies, new soundtracks (theme songs or BGM), new video games etc...
Or maybe i have just been growing up and cannot enjoy Dragon Ball news as i did in my childhood? Because of that, I am now considering myself like one of these oldies that rather watch DB/DBZ/DBGT series instead of "Super" series of whatever else...

I was looking around for some news and i was happy to see now how Kanzenshuu has evolved. So, Long Live Kanzenshuu !

Hello, my name is SuperSaiyaManZ94 and i just recently joined the forum so i wanted to share with ya'll how i discovered this place as an introduction. My awareness of the site started in about mid to late 2010 when i was still in high school, as this was around the same time when Dragon Ball Z Kai was just getting started over here both on home video and TV broadcast. I had already previously heard about this website (which was still known as Daizenshuu EX at the time) from some friends i knew at school, who also just happened to browse around on it some as well. I therefore properly looked up the site on one of the library computers at break and on these here forums and needles to say it was truly mind blowing, and since then i have been a long time follower and lurker on both the site and podcast though i only properly joined the site within the last couple of days.

While i am at it, i might as well briefly go over my on/off history with the franchise since i was a child. It all began in earnest roughly around mid to late 2000 when i was six years old, and some of the very first things i remember seeing on TV were a couple of random Perfect Cell/Cell Games episodes on Cartoon Network/Toonami of FUNimation's original in-house dub run. Somewhere around that same time my first cousin had also started watching the show as well in which we both really started growing an interest in it over time, and thus we continued to watch a good chunk of the original run of the '99-'03 dub and onward with the original series and GT. I also caught some scattered re runs of the original edited '96 dub of the Saiyan and Namek arcs during a break in the airing of the Buu episodes. In addition to that, my cousin also happened to have a good chunk of episodes on VHS that we would watch quite frequently when we would play together. Eventually, my interest in the series started to wane sometime around early 2005 or so. The last things i remember seeing before it fell on my radar for quite a few years were some of the late Saturday night airings of the "Ultimate Uncut" redub of the first two seasons, and thus it eventually left my mind almost entirely after that point up until high school when i happened to catch DBZ Kai just as it was beginning it's dubbed run on Nicktoons in May/June 2010. After that point i began to get back into the franchise and gradually started to collect the series on DVD little by little, as well as keep up with all of the new developments in the last couple of years such as the most recent Z movies and Super.

As such, that has now lead me to properly sign up to be a part of this awesome community which i have viewed only as a casual lurker for so long.

I've known about this website for quite a few years now. I was signed up for another DB site for a few years but it weirdly rebooted or something and my profile was lost or deleted. So I came here lol

I didn't really watch DB until 02 when Cartoon Network started airing Dragon Ball, so my introductory experience with the series was with the edited English dub. Watched the trilogy in its entirety and in 06 I kinda stopped watching, mostly because I was focusing on my studies and other stuff in life. In 09 I was reintroduced to DB through the original Japanese, it was also my first time seeing it uncut. I fell in love with the series all over again. To this day I can't stomach the English version, it's way too cheesy and I prefer the VA & music in the original.

Should be fun discussing this awesome series with the people here
