I think Chris Rager was the best actor in the old Z dub.

Since I consider the first 53 Ocean dub episodes to be part of the old Z dub I would give that honour to Scott McNeil.

You're definitely not. It's my favorite look for Gohan, rivaling his Cell Games one.
I would say my favorite look for Gohan was him in the latest episode. Really like that suit.

I made a bet with Alee9977 that Vegeta won't be beaten quickly by an opponent. If I lose, I switch my avatar to Vegeta getting beat by hit. If I win, he switches it to Vegeta holding Black by his hair. This will last a month.

Viz's manga is better then Kai's dub. Besides the censorship and occasional changed dialog, it's the best way for people who dislike the JPN cast to experience the series.

I've been collecting for a year, and am up to the beginning of the Android Arc. So far, I'm inclined to agree. Despite its occasional changes, they're almost always miniscule and/or non-intrusive.

The Boo saga gets a bit iffy (H-word, Vegrot) but other then that, it's fine. Actual one of my biggest complaints in the freedom is when people act like their entire translation is on par with season 3.

Don't forget the use of lasers in place of guns.

It really wasn't even a thing until the Boo arc. DB and early DBZ had guns.

I've checked some of the Boo Arc pages, and the change is stupid, but so what? It's miniscule to the point of irrelevance.

I just don't see the point of even changing it. I don't get how lasers being fired make any difference in "violence levels" than a normal gun.

I agree, but it's not big enough to justify caring. Maybe Full Color will be the first (good) release to correct it.

Yeah, cause I'm foaming at the mouth here.

You're clearly trying to start something, so don't talk to me ever again.

You're clearly the one "starting something" out of absolutely nothing, though.

That's actual one of the reasons why I don't know much about the Boo arc. The anime is to fucking long and Viz's censorship makes me not want to reread it.

The latest 3-in-1 release of Boo isn't censored. It's cheap, but not well-made either.

Also, the first printing of it did mistakenly have the edited pages. So if you're buying off ebay or from a 3rd party Amazon Seller, you're taking a chance.

- The full color dragonball manga is the best way for me to experience the series

- despite its flaws , i actually enjoyed The Resurrection F Movie

- Dragon Ball Super's recent episodes has better animation than any episode of dragon ball z , the art however isn't as good

- i like Garlic JR's saga

- TFS fans are ruining the series (even though i enjoy watching DBZA)
My English is poor .

I agree. Fans tend to exaggerate the importance of the small flaws of the Viz manga, even often having problems with what isn't actually a flaw, just alternate choices in translation/adaptation ("Vegerot", Djin", ...). In truth, the small flaws wouldn't even be noticeable if fans weren't familiar with the original and the flaws are, like you said, almost always minuscule and/or non-intrusive.
