How's DB Kai? Haven't watched it but thinking about downloading it.
Spoiler that shit mang.
It is not as painfully long as the original Z but still not as good as the manga.The dub is actually competent this time, if you are into that sort of thing. The original JP cast is still solid. The redrawn scenes are pretty jarring and you can immediately spot them. Also the original score for Kai was replaced by the original Kikuchi music. Some people don't like the placing of the Kikuchi.
How are you taking those screencaps if you haven't downloaded it?
the strongest human on earth is Krilin
It's the only episode I have on hdd because I wanted to check out that new Freeza's theme music. Made this thread in order to ask for opinions whether I should download all of it.
I plan on watching it with Jap voices. Redrawn scenes? What do you mean? They redrew some scenes from scratch? What for. Care to give examples? Also the place where I can download it has Yamamoto music for 95 episodes, only 96, 97 and 98 seem to be Kikuchi. I'm definitely going to enjoy it with Yamamoto music because despite being a plagiarist I liked his stuff in Budokai, Infinite World, Burst Limt and Raging Blast 2 games.
Video seems to use Bluray as source, only audio is from TV for Yamamoto music.
The old Tien vs. Krillin argument? It's been so long, Gamefaqs, I don't know if I still can...
His name is Ten, not Tien. Dubfags please leave your cancer out of this.
You're gonna go there when he said Krillin?
That can't be right, why would he be named Ten? You wouldn't name your kid Nine, or Ten.
Read the manga, it's much much better. The fights are much more awesome.
Are you retarded? His name is Tenshinhan, Ten for short. I have no idea why the fuck they changed it to some cancerous stupidity in amerilard dub.
That too, Kuririn obviously.
Because it's a universe where you can name your kids like a type of underwear.
Or Super Seventeen
But that doesn't really answer what I'm asking about.... I plan on reading the manga eventually, but not yet.
I know a girl named Nine
she had sex with a cat
DB Kai is worth it but it's not anywhere close to the manga in term of quality. Also, it stops at Cell saga.
Don't expect anything from the new drawings, there is barely any, it's the same shitty animation from 1980.
Who are the:
1st row, 4th guy
3rd row, 4th guy
9th row, 3rd guy
10th row, 2nd guy
11th row, 2nd and 4th guys
Also why the fuck did you use the shitty GT Special recap of DB screens for General Black? And why did you include him twice? And why is General Red not included? And why is Tao Pai Pai not included?
So Kulilin is stronger than 10 but not as strong as 18?
According to GT, he's definitely weaker than 18.
Ah thanks, gonna download it then. And I don't mind it being the same animation, that's good actually. I'm just interested in the completely redone audio and new music.
I'm also aware that it stops at Cell Saga, but I heard they're releasing Buu Saga Kai this year, or is that bullshit rumor?
>according to GT
According to GT, a Super Saiyan 4 can't lift a wall.
Also, according to GT, old Krilin > GT Goku.
Just tell me who they are and some of them are clearly manga...
I have a confession. I really, really enjoyed DBZ abridged. Especially the parts with Freeza. That is all.
Watch the movies.
whos the last guy?
Android 17 and 18's PL were in the in millions, if not dozens of millions range. Reminder that they were stronger than Frieza, previously thought to be strongest in the universe. Krilin's PL maxed out at a few hundred thousands or something. 18 could kill her midget husband with a flick of a finger if she wanted.
Editor-san, he's going to cancel DB's.
Also if anyone's interested, here's a place where you can download Bluray rips of Kai (4:3) with Yamamoto music for 95 episodes, even for the English dub, since some guy used Bluray's 5.1 Audio to separate sound from music and used music from the TV version.
It also has 16:9 TV rips for those prefer that over Bluray 4:3
It ended after Vegeta and Nappa though...
"When you've had a man inside you you know when he's coming"-abridged krillin
Thanks for being useless shitposting asshole.
Indeed. While it's sad they just stopped all of a sudden when there could possibly have been potential, it might have been for the better after all.
Krillin is a Saiyan.
Just watch the abridged series if you are going to rewatch DBZ.Kai thins the series out a bit but there aren't many major changes from DBZ.Both dubs are ok voice-wise but some of the dialogue is painfully awkward.
The first screen shot is a redrawn scene. Compare to the others. It doesn't happen too often but it is noticeable and jarring when it does. They were drawn because of damage to the original, I imagine.
I was wondering why it looked like a middle schooler traced it.
Abridged Namek was better than Abridged Saiyans though. It had Freeza, and Guru, and pro wrestler Recoom.
I am regularly watching Abridged though, love it. Though not really fond of the English-dub soundalikes since I'm not really a fan of the dub in the first place, but otherwise it's great.
Still, I was thinking about watching vanilla DBZ for a while and Kai definitely seems interesting so based on what I gathered in this thread it's at least worth one watch.
I think you forgot your picture.
second time i see this gif
in a row
I'd suggest watching it in japanese then.
>No Tao Pai Pai
That's what I'm going to do obviously for Kai, already said as much earlier in the thread. I meant the Abridged series kinda bothering me with being soundalikes of the English dub and using Eng dub names/translation (Krillin, Tien etc). It would've been better in my opinion if they used their own unique voices for the Abridged series and would set them more apart from the commercialized dub.
Tao never was a final boss.
>1st row, 4th guy
>3rd row, 4th guy
Dr. Uiro(Wheelo in the dub)
>9th row, 3rd guy
Yomao(from the GT special)
>10th row, 2nd guy
Kuriza, Freeza's son(Neko Majin)
>11th row, 2nd
Chilled(Episode of Bardock)
>11th row, 4th
Katayude(Jaco the Galatic Patrolman)
>Also why the fuck did you use the shitty GT Special recap of DB screens for General Black?
It is a movie. He is a main villain and different enough from his manga counterpart.
Black is the representative for the RRA mainly because he is the final boss character.
>Tao Pai Pai
Main villains only. He was a miniboss in both the movie and the RRA story arc.
First picture as in the one in the very first post.
Regular Z isn't too bad in Japanese. The pacing is terrible(it meant to be a weekly program obviously) but certain scenes are really nice. The JP cast gives it their all and the Kikuchi score fits the wuxia atmosphere.
Black and many others in that fucking pic weren't final bosses either. The list desperately needs Tao, Red and Gero. And removing the double Black listing.
Not OP, but you mean OPs picture is redrawn? To be honest it looks the same, just blurrier.
Black was the last boss, died like a bitch but all the RR was a bunch of normalfags with weapons.
You still have subbosses on that list so it doesn't make sense. You should at least add Tao and Gero.
Black 2 put up a decent fight. Probably because his robot was giant.
Yeah, OP's pic was redrawn.
All the screens are a bit blurry. It is not enough to ruin the show but I just threw it out there for OP. This particular youtube video looks weird though.
That video is mirrored, forced 16:9 (cut off top and bottom) and oversaturated as fuck. Why the fuck don't people use Bluray source?
Also thanks for clarifying, now that you mention it, is this >>100309439 redrawn too?
I made the list. None of them are really subbosses except for Katayude maybe(but he is really the only antagonist in Jaco).
Tsuru-sennin is the main villain of the 3rd DB movie. 17 & 18 are the main villains of the future special.
The funny thing is, not even Base Goku could beat Freeza. This was confirmed by Bills.
They actually call him Tenshinhan fairly often in abridged (mainly Chaotzu and King Kai), and Tien for short or as a nickname oddly enough.
Also I think they mimic the iconic dub voices in many cases for the nostalgia factor. A lot of us grew up on this and part of the humor is seeing and hearing somewhat familiar characters redone in a comedic way.
I actually sorta wish they'd mimicked Vegeta's Ocean dub voice because I was rather fond of it as a wee lad. It sounded more sinister and arrogant to me, I guess.
Yeah, that screen shot is redrawn. You can tell because it clearly looks like it was traced.
I found Kai highly disappointing. I just expected more than what we got I guess.
Speaking of dragonball
Where is our storytime anon?
As I said, I just wish they tried to do something completely new to make their own unique take on it, instead of just sounding like poor soundalike tryhards. Otherwise I still fully enjoy it.
Guess they will be easy to spot then, going to bother me slightly but not so much since they aren't too badly redrawn. I guess it's because the cells were damaged?
why is the TFS Dub so much better?
I am an adult.
Is it this time again?
Don't forget your daily dose /v/
Fuck off /v/ermin.
They are using cells. The got rid of the original material awhile ago. The whole thing is just an HD remaster. And I don't think we know why certain scenes were traced like that. I've heard that it is to slow down some scenes/remove flashing but I'm not sure.
The dub for kai was shit, Gohan's voice sounded like complete ass
I never knew Recoom was supposed to be full on short bus retarded.
He's probably in MS Paint, randomly changing our prescripted dosage. Again.
He was supposed to be your stereotypical dumb as fuck all brawns no brains fighter.
Kai is awesome, OP.
Seems like they went a tad bit beyond that trope in the Funimation dub.
That is in the dub. In the original anime/manga he is just a bit flamboyant.
>The dub is actually competent this time
It always was,fuck off
