The Dragon Ball Thread

A thread for all things Dragon Ball. The thread on the old site was titled the Dragon Ball Z thread, but I don't think we should neglect Dragon Ball or GT :)

To kick things off, here is a video I found just a few minutes ago:

One of my favorite amv's by Godfatheramv who makes awesome stuff.

 

One of my many favorites that I have edited. And a playlist of everything I've made.

 

5+ years old.

On the old DB Thread, there was a link to a site that played old school Toonami 24/7.

Anybody have the link ?

Anyone playing Xenoverse?

I bought it in an attempt to recapture a bit of my childhood but i don't find it nearly as enjoyable as the original DBZ  Xbox games i used to play (Budokai et al.).

 

I'm playing the crap out of it. The gameplay is awesome. The only dumb thing is that ALL unlocks are random on the side quests.

So I got bored and made this.

how should i be approaching the game? should i just hammer out the main time quests that trunks has or do more of the side shit first?

It depends, you unlock a majority of the clothing/special attacks through side quests. You can do the main quests and SOME items will be available to buy, but for a lot of $ and they only unlock after every saga you beat.
new dragon ball series coming. Akira Toriyama will be making it. Set after the events of the Majin buu saga. I am assuming that will finally confirm GT as non canon? who is pumped????

Really excited for this, but I hope there's a Funi simulcast. Honestly can't stand to watch the Japanese dubs.

What don't you like about the Japanese versions? I personally prefer to watch them in Japanese with subtitles because it seems more authentic, plus it has the original music which is a big plus. Only downside for me is having to read subtitles which can take away from the experience a bit.

Because I grew up watching Funimation DBZ on Cartoon Network.
empty your videos always cheer me up.

in the same boat. I dont like watching japanese with english subs for exactly the same reason

Dragon Ball is the only series ever that I actually prefer the dub, the voice acting and soundtrack were leagues better imo.

This video gave me chills! 

Has anyone else heard of the new Dragon Ball series supposedly coming out? It's called "Dragon Ball Super" and is set to air in Japan starting in July.

EDIT: I just read the posts and I'm glad to see others have heard about this as well. I'm hyped!

 

Honestly, I just think the voice actors and soundtrack for the dub are much, much better than the Japanese versions. Not to mention, Goku's voice actor is terrible imo. Sean fits the role perfectly.

been wanting to watch db-dbgt for like the 4th time....takes me like 2-4 weeks LOL

Amv I edited for fun so I could add in some nice HD footage of the new film Resurrection 'F' Along with the rest of the series of course.

HD footage that hasn't been watermarked with something  is really hard to come by... I get most of mine via download off of YouTube.  I decided to combine my last two videos together into one with a somewhat custom made intro and creative production name that I usually include in all of videos. It took from the quality a little bit but not too much.

 

I made this AMV back in May(my personal favorite). Its got a  mix of The Grey,  Linkin Park and some Imagine Dragons,  with a "The Matrix" theme.

episode 5 of dragon ball super finally gonna get the ball rolling.

I've still only seen the first two. Definitely not much excitement, but that's how shit goes. 

Seeing Ressurection F tonight in theaters. Pretty stoked for that.

episode 5 of dragon ball super finally gonna get the ball rolling.

Is it?  I stopped watching because of how boring it was.

I mean if you love retelling the same story with lower quality animation...

Back when DBS was announced I was already managing expectations about the direction of the series and trying to remove the nostalgia goggles I've been wearing for a decade, but I didn't think such a mess could be made with so little, even just from a linear standpoint. Akira has been building a ladder leading nowhere, while simultaneously sawing the bottom off. Now he is just taking segments he's already sawed off, trying to line them up with what he is building. Guy is smoking something fierce. However I'll continue to tune in just to see Vegeta as the most well-rounded Z fighter/father/person now, which is surprisingly hilarious.
Lahey: Ruiner of childhood dreams.

i mean, the show is literally as dbz as it gets. filler episodes and all. its about the same pacing that i remember from when i was a kid, its only a shame they've ruined the plot by making the movies. regardless, im sure there will be differences along the way that will make the series worth watching.

honestly you are better off waiting a year or two and then being able to binge watch the entire thing, but then you would be a more patient man than i. 

That year would be better spent watching Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter X Hunter really. I'm pretty confident DBS will continue to prove itself, I'm just not that interested in what the series has to say at this point, it's coming across as increasingly vacant, with a mix-mash of some cool but still half-baked or ill-placed ideas. I feel like the franchise has been inching closer and closer to this Microsoft Excel spreadsheet way of basically listing and categorizing transformations. What those transformations mean to the person uh, transforming is next to nothing, the only real weight being in reference to other forms. Not that DBS doesn't have some good things going for it, but the overall direction of the series is unfortunately not among them, but that started way back with Z.
Fuck, yu yu hakusho is so fucking good. 
Manga is the tits.
