FUNimation DBZ Dragon Box Vol. 2 Trailer

Post by Captain Awesome » Fri Dec 18, 2009 12:44 am

I'm not sure what the case is with this (hopefully this hasn't already been posted) but I was randomly scouring Youtube and happened across what seems to be the Dbox 2 trailer on what appears to be a random account. Anyway, it's more of the same except "over 9000" has been substituted with another DBZ meme (that I wont spoil for you :P).

Anyway, without further adieu;

I wish they'd use some goddamned Cha-La Head-Cha-La or at least some actual background music...

Haha, really? :P At least it's not as overused as Over 9000.

All right, so now we have to work out which meme we get for the third set?

Cat loves food?
As a matter of fact, I did?

I can't remember any more.

I was wondering when it was going to show up.
Dragonball and One Piece are two totally different stories, except one author has a fanboy hard-on for another Author.

Chris Sabat's Piccolo sounds a bit different in this trailer.

Yeah, in the trailer I could really see what people mean when they say he sounds like a wrestler.

Chris Sabat's Piccolo sounds the same to me. That is, kind of flat.

But the commercial is pretty decent. Not as good as the first set's commercial and its "The Dragon Box will be mine! And... yours, Earthling.", though.

His Piccolo sounds... different, to say the least. Oh well. Hooray for other meme!
[quote="Brakus"]For all the flack that FUNimation gets on this forum for their quote about DBZ, there's some modicum of truth to it: a 9-year-old is born every day. Or in some cases, "reborn". DBZ may be a kids' show, but it's been so close to so many hearts all over Japan, America, and quite possibly, even the world.[/quote]

Old meme's okay (at least it's not 9000, but if they continue with tag lines from db from the internet, I hope they use a line from TFS in future DBox ads, that'd be spectacular. X3
*Imagines an ad that uses "DODGE!", "Mahogany.", "gumdrops and ice cream", or "Are we there yet?", etc.*

I laughed.
I wonder what they will say in the next one. I hope it something along the lines of "CAT LOVES DRAGONBOX Z YEAH YEAH YEAH".

Obviously the next Dragon Box's ad will involve Freeza being "stoked" and hoping it turns you on.

If they're going to use meme's, the most appropriate for the next set would sound like "These boxes remind me of something that resembles joy I think! I want to caress them."

For the DBox with Gohan's SS2 transformation, they should take that scene and add tons of inner monologue like in the dub:

"Number 16 loved life! And now, now he won't be able to watch the Dragon Box, with its 44 episodes of high quality Dragon Ball Z action, complete with an amazing Dragon Book with fun extras! When I think about how long I've had to wait to get this show in this quality, it makes me... SO... ANGRY!"

Cue explosion of rage.

Loved the Second Trailer, Personally I would have had Vegeta on the First Dragonbox cover instead of the second one considering the majority of the episodes are concerning with discovering aliens known as the Saiyans and training to beat them. Then the Second Dragon Box should have had Freeza on it considering it had to do with Freeza killing innocent nameks and collecting the dragon balls for his own selfish needs.

I have no idea what should be on the third Dragon box cover, but most likely Goku and one of the androids in a battle stance. I know they would not be able to do huge pictures, but one small picture would be fine. The reason for this is, those episodes have to deal with the androids trying to kill Goku and it was not all about Trunks as he appears little throughout each episode. Even though he plays a major role, they mostly show the other Z fighters fighting the androids and trunks just trys to stop all of them from fighting with the androids which is no help at all.

and so on....Those are just my ideas of how they should have put the first three Dragonbox cover art together.

For if/when they decide to lose and episode or two on one of the boxes to throw in a TV Special and/or some extra's:

Vegeta
"Kakarot, to further raise the power levels of this Dragon Box, I'm going throw in THE HISTORYYY OF TRUUNKS SPECIALLL!!! IS THAT OKAAAAYYY??"

Goku
"As a matter of fact, it IS!"

Or something ridiculous like that. 8) Though it'll probably be just Sabat by himself. Oh well. He's talked to himself before. :P
Can't you see? He's the man. Let me hear you applaud. He's more than a man! He's a shiny golden god!

I think the third Dragon Box cover should feature Generic Tree Caught in Ki Blast.

The narration sounded off to me and I don't know why.

Maybe because I'm not used for dub Piccolo?
