I used to wish it told us more before but now I see it was a good idea to leave everything unknown otherwise it would've been hard to write stories set in the past like they're doing now. I still think that when we get to EOZ there'll be some other changes like Beerus being there or something like that.
Maybe Beerus will be napping again at that time & Whis'll either be looking after him, or snacking on Earth food somewhere.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.
TFS getting shafted from the Kai TFC dub is a great travesty.
GT sucks, get over it if you disagree.
We'll see what happens to Vic.

Holy shit! I just heard something as to a clue when FUNi might've had TFS record their parts for the original version of the Cell Games Reenactment. Go to their Xenoverse Let's Play part 37 & go to about 8:20. Kaiser makes an offhanded reference to it when he says "Pickle Monster." The situation surrounding it is that they were playing the Kid Trunks mission & Lani was fighting Piccolo as Dumplin. So, in, roughly the same span of time that they recorded Taka's voice for the createable character, that's when they must've recorded their version of that scene. Either that, or maybe a bit before they recorded that video.

Actually I think it's rather fitting here, because this is the grown up version of the bratty Trunks. Rather then the humble polite one from the future.

I would have preferred if he had used his Z voice.

Maybe he just wants to act like a normal human?

Gohan found a way to take his slacking on training to the next level of laziness.

The music used during the scene were Vegeta's burned out husk hits the floor is so out of place. It should've been more somber.

Your comment could be applied to 90% of the scenes in Buu Kai... :lol:

I highly doubt hovering 2 feet off the ground for like a minute wastes any energy lol.

Pretty solid scores really! Reflective for most people I'd imagine. Only thing I would change for the first part is an A from story to a B.

Nah, not yet. We are 5 episodes away from Super Saiyan 3.

Hey, guys. Finally got the main part of the first episode of TFC done for my Dragon Box footage cut if anyone wants to tell me how I did. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=39080

I finally bought the rest of Kai on DVD, and while The Final Chapters definitely has issues (why was the Hell scene kept?), I really loved the way it handled the Vegetto stuff. It was taken down to two episodes, and the base Vegetto was intact, but reduced to half of an episode. All of the Dende and Mr. Satan cutaways were removed, as well as the Enma scenes, and only a handful of Kaioshin scenes were included. It makes for two really action packed episodes.

The Vegetto stuff was still way too much of a drag for me to be honest, why they kept Base Vegetto is beyond me, it is pointless as a viewer watching such a one sided fight and in fact it makes things even worse because it makes Vegetto's superiority feel even more and as viewer I am less interested in the rest of the arc now since Vegetto should killed him, his mission was to save the others so he was't gonna make the kill okay whatever but then Toriyama made the fight short and sweet in the Manga because of that, the anime was just too lumbering, even in TFC.

The same with the Majin Vegeta vs Goku fight, with Goku having SS3 that fight just seems super pointless in hindsight and Toriyama wisely chose to not concentrate on it much because it would just be a waste time there were far more interesting things going on with Gohan, Shin, Babidi and Dabura than watching Goku being a twat and holding back in his super mega fight with Vegeta. Watching Buu Kai every time they cut back to the Majin Vegeta I honestly was rolling my eyes thinking to myself is this really not done yet? Please get back to the other stuff. It was just a plot point to get Buu revived that was it.

Kai was such a missed opportunity to get a proper manga version of Z re-animated from scratch and now we aren't ever gonna get that chance again.
