    The one guy drew Piccolo EXTRA happy which was funny.

    Eiichiro Oda drew Goku just like Luffy, except on a cloud with Nami's stick.

    Well DB/DBZ is pretty legendary. Hopefully it'll get revived sometime in the future...cause I need to clear out some DBZ merchandise.

    Did they really have to drag everything out in the anime? Fecking fillers.

    One of the fillers is one of the best episodes, when Piccolo and Goku learn to drive.

    That was a hilarious episode.

    Which version of Cell did Vegeta shoot a Final Flash at? A Cell Jr. hax'd by grabbing a Final Flash blast and punting it away (IIRC). If it wasn't Perfect Cell I say it should've taken out more of him.

    Perfect Cell one. The one that could be seen from space. It was a direct hit (Cell didn't try and dodge trying to be badass) and it only took off his upper right torso.

    Yeah that made no sense, he took out half that whole part of the planet and yet Cell was like "You only hit my shoulder because the writers said so"

    Yeah? Well, what about Goku hitting Cell with the Warp Kamehameha? He blew his entire upper-body into oblivion, yet when he comes back after self-destructing later, he says that as long as his nucleus (located in his head) was undamaged, he could survive anything!

    Talk about your plot holes!

    FUNi's version does something much more believeable, and has him say that he could regenerate from any surviving body cells.

    IMHO that's what made Cell so lame. They beat him several times - its was just that his regeneration glitch kept him coming back. Freeza just straight-up took heavy shots and kept coming back.

    Also, is Funi actually respected as a dubbing company now? Wow, things have CHANGED since I got out of the scene.

    like i have said 4kids is where funimation was a decade or so ago. back then funimation was the devil and it was inconceivable of them getting any show we loved...now we beg for them to have them.

    cell regeneration glitch is because of piccolo.

    That wasn't a plot hole, I actually liked that because it showed the power he had and his resilience. His name is Cell afterall.

    The Final Flash thing however didn't make sense being that it was a direct hit.

    the first tournament with goku and krillin in db was too beastly. Some guy would use his bad smell against krillin then half way through the fight krillin remembered he had no nose lol. :rofl::rofl:
    God, that dude was nasty. He would dip his hand into his shorts and fling the sweat at his opponent. I still get a little queasy thinking about that particular battle.

    I wouldn't have nearly as big a problem with Funi's release if the new Japanese DVD's were widescreen as well, but they aren't. They're remastered fullscreen. I dunno if Toei's just being a bitch and not releasing the Dragonbox footage to Funi, or if this was Funi's own decision, but either way, it's bullshit.

    Word on the subs though. Steve Simmons rocks. I guaran-damn-tee you'll get more out of the story if you watch the subtitled version. Way fucking better translation.

    I read about the DBZ games before, but I was one of the few that actually saw DB when it first aired back in the day. The eventual jump from DB first couple of episodes to DBZ beginnings was jarring as fuck. Although it did sort of make me appreciate the DB episodes better when I eventually got to see them.

    IMO, as a whole DB > DBZ >>> DBGT.

    Anyone else think that Goku was a douche after watching DBZ. I loved the kid in DB, but after the Cell game begins he becomes the series biggest asshole.

    As cool as it was seeing Gohan kick ass at the end of the Cell Saga, Goku's reasoning for staying dead was weak. Hell, it was a bit of dick move to transport Cell to King Kai's planet to begin with.

    It only got worst in the Buu saga. Him not killing off Buu when he had the chance, mutiple times and him abandoning his family (for the second or third time) to train Uub at the end. Dude went from being my favorite to the nigga I hate to see on the screen.

    GT was just an abomination and is probably the reason we haven't seen anyone else try to tackle picking up a new DBZ series either set in the future or during the time gaps.

    The fans wanted Goku. Toriyama was clearly trying to work towards Gohan being The One and all, but after the Cell games he got dumped on in favor of Goku, much like the entire cast.

    I've noticed that there's a difference between dubbed Goku and the subtitled Goku, with the English dub seeming twice as douche-baggy.

    I had no problem with Goku being the strongest since he was the main character and all, but I hated how from Z through GT everyone else just sucked, and by everyone I mean the non-saiyans. Yamcha, Piccolo, Krillin, Tien, they were all dope... but became useless.

    Yeah, Toriyama REALLY wanted to shift the focus on Gohan, but the fans just weren't having it - they still loved Goku. It's why Goku always seems to peace out for awhile, but then ultimately come back and save the day.

    In the Japanese version, Goku ditching everybody is just a part of his child-like character. You know he never grew up, so its plausible. Like at the end of DBZ when he leaves to go train Uubu, he's just like "cool strong new opponent whee!!!!" and all the other characters are like "WHAT THE FU- ah, classic Goku!" In the dubbed version - yeah, he's just an asshole. Things lost in translation I suppose.

    Aight, now that I know there's a big enough Dragonball fanbase here:

    www.daizex.com

    Sorry, I just have to pimp this site. It's a great resource, it has an entertaining podcast, and the webmaster is a huge SF fan (where do you think the EX came from?).

    And Budokai 3 is a damn solid game. Greatest Hits version is the version to get, as it is dual language and has extra unlockable costumes. However, from what I've played, Super DBZ has the better engine by far. Which I just saw today for about 15 bucks. I may have to cop that soon...

    Thats the main reason why i hated Buu saga with a passion. That saga should have ended with Gohan,Goten and Trunks saving the day. Not Goku and his deux ex machina the Spirit bomb.

    I would say it's either that or Super DBZ. Budokai 3 is actually pretty damn fun, especially with the character customization through capsules. It may not be the most deepest and technical fighter, but it sure is a blast to go through capsules to see what kind of nice combinations you can make up.

    Super DBZ is alright too, but I think it just needed a bit more polish. Feels way too clunky to me. It really could use a sequel or a revision..

    whats so good about budokai 3? after i played budokai 1-2 i kinda gave up on the series and thought the control scheme was wack...(pppe for moves, no flight etc..)

    but last year i went and got the budokai tenkaichi 2 and loved it, the controls were great, easy to learn, and it was actually like it is on the show, good combos, teleports during fights and everything

    i always hear that budokai 3 is good but was scared to try it.... does that game differ much from budokai 1 and 2?

    and how does it stack up to budokai tenkaichi 2?

    Yeah, but did it seem to anyone else that he almost kept trying to end the series even before Cell game? I mean the way most of the storyarcs ended it almost felt like they kept pushing him to do more and up the ante until by the time DB ended we got DBZ, which starts out with Goku dying. Obviously it couldn't end like that completely but even the end of the first saga had Goku not actually beat Vegeta completely.

    But maybe that is just me.

    I still say that was a bitch move for a a 40+ year old dude to make. Don't know how the translation can help, child-like maybe, but still just as selfish as any other dude leaving his family to go fuck around.

    Raditz never actually did a move called Double Sunday. They just gave him moved named after days of the week for some reason.

    This was a FUNimation created move.

    Basically, they made DB: Budokai and wanted to put Raditz in it (even though his whole purpose in it was to job to the heroes, it's like putting in Ninja Murasaki, which would actually fucking rock if they made an original Dragon Ball fighting game, but anyway...).

    However, Raditz was only in like 6 episodes so he had no moves. So they gave him one in the game and called it Double Sunday.

    Then FUNimation redubbed the first few epsiodes of DBZ, strangely completely re-using the original script, which was waaaaay the fuck off (though taking out the whole "Next Dimension" thing and the "Home for Infinite Losers", because characters in a kids' show can't die and they sure as hell can't go to... umm... hell...). Seeing as Raditz now had a move name, they decided that he was going to "do" this move now.

    Kind of like having Kylie Minogue kick a guy in SFTM and calling it the Cannon Spike (yeah, I know it was called "Thrust Kick" in the movie, shut up.)

    but man, listening to drummond and mcneil deliver their natural voices to vegeta and piccolo just reminded me of how horrible and jarring sabat's raspy immitations were. had it not been for the trashy music, this dub would've been golden.





    but not all of FUNimation's cast was terrible. i thought their goku, roshi, oolong and tenshinhan, were much better than the original voices.

    Well, as previously stated before, the series was supposed to end after the Freeza/Frieza saga (BTW, DBZ came out at around the same time as Batman & Robin, hence FUNimation/Saban spelling it the way they did).

    Thus, Goku was supposed to be the one and only Legendary Super Saiyan. However, since the series was continued, things like making Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, et al Super Saiyans came up.

    Then, the series was supposed to be all about Gohan, what with him being the first to go SSJ2 and Goku dying again, but the fans wouldn't have that, so Goku came back to life and went SSJ3.

    Then, Dragon Ball (Z) ended, and the fans wouldn't have THAT, hence the abomination known as DBGT.

    So, to all of you who complain that companies don't listen to the fans, see what happens when they do?

    Well, think about it: Why would a Japanese company care about what an American consumer thinks unless the product is intended to be international?

    For example, Guile was put in Street Fighter II because Capcom wanted to "appeal to the American player" (partly because SF1 was more popular in the US than in Japan, though before SFII, I'd never heard of Street Fighter...)

    However, mangaka and anime companies produce stories and shows that would appeal to Japanese consumers. Name me one anime made with the intent to be international. (On the flip side, name me one US movie, TV show or comic that's intended to be international...)

    Also, wouldn't most US companies listened to their fans, wouldn't we also get bombarded by porn?
    Wouldn't we get an episode of Family Guy where Brian actually gets to nail Lois?
    Wouldn't there be an episode of Friends where Monica, Rachel and Phoebe just wrestle around in baby oil (and don't speak)?
    Wouldn't have Samuel L. Jackson completely pwned the Star Wars prequel trilogy, causing A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back & Return of the Jedi to instantly become non-canon?
    Wouldn't Freakazoid get more than 2 seasons?

    Yeah, it is a bastard move for a 40 year old guy to do...but for Goku, it's believeable since he does have that child-like personality.

    Goku was always like that. He agreed to marry Chi Chi thinking marriage was just an event where he could eat a lot, and when he found out what marriage actually was he was like "Ah, fuck it - I can't go back on my promise!" Then Kami tries to make him into the new God of the Earth, and Goku was like "Hell no, I don't want that responsibility!"

    Despite becoming so damned powerful, at heart Goku never really grew up at all. You watch Dragonball, and it's Goku as a kid. You watch DBZ, and it's the exact same Goku, just with a bigger body. That's one of the things that the dubbing kinda failed to capture.

    Definitely need to work that EX Tatsu wake-up into my gameplan. Sacrificing damage and stun meter for psychological damage. That's some next level shit right there.

    Fixed.


    (Off Topic) The Piccolo vs Android 17 fight is so underrated it's not funny.

    Too true. I really liked the way they were equals with Piccolo getting the upper hand then #17 etc. Hated the way that Cell walked on and dealt with them both but #17 showing respect to Piccolo topped it off.

    This is just a pretext for greatness.

    Hmmm...for all this time, every since I learned about the Brian Drummond voice actor, I always thought people were talking about the older-sounding, Funimation version that I remember.

    Weird.

    Anyway, it's nice to see this thread around, even if I can't take Dragonball Z seriously anymore.

    Dragonball, however, is the truth. I remember trying to stay home as a kid sometimes and watch in on what used to be UPN.

    I swear, if pink wasn't such an emetic color, I'd probably have searched for and bought a Mercernary Tao "Kill You" vest/jacket by now.


    Oh, by the way, this post[/url] has been an excuse to link to Kajekotun's DBZ parody-related videos, which are part of the reason that I can't take DBZ seriously anymore. Kajekotun is the guy that made "Over 9000!" so popular. Whether you know who that is or not and whether you've gotten tired of "Over 9000!", I would [url=

    Especially when they were punching each other so hard that their fists were bulging out of their back. And the double Alpha Counters where they both were spinning.

    Just an awesome fight overall.

    Those were referred to in the pre-dub days ('93) as "prostate-puking punches".

    It was sweet when Piccolo surrounded 17 with energy balls, and 17 was like "Wtf are you doin...oh shit!" and had to make the energy shield to protect himself.

    That was one of the best fights on DBZ.
