"Super Saiyan Berserk" is taken as well.

I always found it weird that “Teen Gohan” is younger/same age in the dub? as “Kid Goku”

Or that Goku in the Piccolo Jr saga is sometimes identified as Teen Goku, which is fair since he’s 18, but 16/18 year old high school student is Adult Gohan.

Well, apparently Toriyama didn't write in Broly's green form. He was just going to go Super Saiyan and stop there. But TOEI added in the green haired form because they knew Broly fans would demand it. You could think of "Full Power" as more of a description than a name, since it is literally just Broly at full power. Personally, if I could name the form, I would have called it Ancient Super Saiyan, since Vegeta says that it is the "Saiyan's true form" or whatever during the Tournament of Power.

The dub never called him a teenager, it was because of the games that made such a poor mistranslation

Same age in the dub referring to Cell Games Gohan being 11 instead of 9 making him closer age to Goku at the beginning of Dragon Ball who I think was 11 in both version.

More or less. In the beginning Goku was 12, but thought he was 13 until he learned to count. Both sub and dub.

That's actually fourteen he thought he was.

Which reminds me how the old Funi DBZ dub used to just make up Goku's age at random. One episode has Bulma say "I've known Goku since he was five years old" in the Trunks/Android eps, while Funi's official website for DB back in 2001 said something like "he's not your typical eight year old".

And he only thought he was 14 in the Japanese version. The whole him telling Bulma he was 14 in episode 2
was rewritten in the dub.

In the Japanese version he later explained to Kurilin that he thought 14 came after 11 until they learned math from Roshi. In the Funi dub he just said Launch taught him to count without using his fingers and toes.

I can’t remember did they leave all those errors in the Android/Cell saga in the remastered sets? Or did they at least fix them there?

If Funimation were to make a dub of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, which when that's happening is probably never, but if they did, who'd be a good voice actor for Cumber?

Most of the redubbing stopped around Season 4... so yeah, the vast majority of dub errors are still there. If anything it's a little worse due to missing audio effects and other issues stemming from the incomplete sound mix that the Remastered dub was based on.

Yeah I do. But Trunks is only half Saiyan and isn't a late bloomer. Or... maybe he is. But he doesn't really act like a teenager in DBS. Only Goku acted childish as a teenager. Then again you can't always tell a person's age by how they act.
You know, it's funny (at the same time stupid) that in the Future Trunks arc we got an flashback showing Teen Trunks that should be around the same age as present Trunks, but it a more convincing design of a 14/15 years old kid.

Some say that the reason in-universe why Goten and Trunks are still brats is because the Earth didn't suffered with a long crisis like the future timeline that needed them to have stronger bodies to battle all the time. Which the same I think it's a good theory I also think is bullsh**.

I wonder if Super is going to ignore End of Z and follow its own continuity.
Well, I would be fine with it. Super is the official continuity of the anime, not the manga... So it could change whatever it wants as it would not affect the original work in anyway.

Is Broly's skin tone olive or am I just kidding myself?

Also why did Paragus look paler on Planet Vegeta?

Were the GT NEPs subbed on the singles? On Funimation now, they aren't.
Looking for these rare items/information:

Any information or recordings pertaining to Dragon Ball Z's syndicated run on WAWB
Any information regarding the stations that carried the origin Dragon Ball in the USA
Dragon Box (any deals would be nice)
Shonen Jumps with Dragon Ball in them

Yes, they were subbed.

19 years ago I was rushing home from school to watch DBZ on Cartoon Network, and today I've rushed home from work to watch DBS on Pop. I guess it's true the more things change the more they stay the same. :lol:

Which North American DBZ release has the best Japanese audio track (Not counting Kai obviously)? Or are they all the same for the most part? And what is the likelihood of ever getting broadcast audio on a home release?

Nope you're indeed correct: it's pronounced Woo-Shyah. X's in Romanized Chinese words are usually pronounced roughly similarly to how English pronounces "Sh".

But I can't, that's how life is. Time is a bitch. The party is over. Kageyama, Kikuchi, and Maeda are off the sauce now; Yanami almost OD'd; Yamamoto got arrested; Toriyama's not going to light trash cans on fire and hang from the chandelier anymore. We can't get the band back together, and even if we could, everyone's either old, in poor health, or calmed way the fuck down. Best we're going to get, and are getting, is a party that's almost entirely devoid of the magic that made the original one so awesome that we even want more.
