Yep. Only wish Cartoonetwork had gotten thier hands on DBK because unlike NN they actually showed blood. So it would have been perfect on CN but they are doing crappy right now as well as NN.

What? Hannah Montanna, Jonas, all their other assorted shows. The only saving grace for Disney is Phineas and Ferb.

Original.

I wasted too much time watching the old series (yes, even the "We'll shout and charge up while the narrator talks" episodes).

Still, I didn't even know this thing was on. But it doesn't show blood? WTF? It's DBZ. This thing introduce violence to my young mind. Besides, people actually die on the show. How are they getting around that?

Um, well you see it's like this.
Nicktoons doesn't really care about preserving the plot and keeping it so that you can tell what is happening (previous knowledge aside). That's why they cut out some of the "more violent" scenes (in a show essentially based on violence) and replace them with about 1/2 a second of a white out transition.

Having seen the DBK episode where Piccolo [presumably] spears Raditz and Goku with his SBC, I can tell you that you essentially go directly from the charging of the attack and lots of screaming to the characters hit by the attack on the ground while Piccolo stands over them.
So there you have it. Tons of screaming, build up, and charging of attacks (admittedly significantly cut down from the original) results in a sudden bank of snow falling from the sky and covering everything in sight for exactly half a second, before disappearing without a trace, and the injured characters instantaneously laying on the ground with strange fuzzy black spots where they were hit, and the attacker standing over them.

I couldn't find the All Purpose Manga thread so I just started this one. I've recently caught myself up on Bleach and History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi. I've been keeping up with those for a while. HSDK is always good, having mostly plot and the fighting only advances the plot and character progression of Kenichi and his friends/enemies. Bleach has devolved far too much into fillers and DBZ like shonen. I was about twenty issues behind on Bleach and all twenty of those issues was nothing but them fighting Aizen. I've gotten this far, so I plan on keeping with Bleach until the end, but come on. Throw something more than endless Bankai's in there. Meanwhile, I've restarted Gantz and hope to be caught up sometime soon. Gantz, while also containing a lot of mindless violence, is somewhat like HSDK. The character progression is great, having a bunch of different characters, some dying off soon and some not. It manages to use the violent matches to progress the characters. I must say that I don't think there's much of a plot other than "Go into this game, kill the alien, try to live." However, the characters and romantic plots keep me intrigued.


Anywho, discuss Manga. Please don't come in here and be like "ZOMG DBZ IS THE BEST!!!" Try and explain why you like certain Mangas. Maybe recommend some Mangas. For all those that hate/dislike/aren't in the mood for Shonen and want some heavy plot driven Mangas, look up 20th Century Boys. Amazing read.

Ever since the Muay Thai Demon Emperor guy came into the picture I had suspected he was the guy Apachai referred to when he said he has to kill someone (chapter when he says this escapes me but still).

But yeah, interesting point about the love triangle too (Kenichi is more part of a Love Kite than a triangle.) I always pegged her as a Red Sonia type.

I've read all of Gantz on Spectrum Nexus... which is pretty much up to the very latest release. And yes it does actually develop out of the "Go into this game, kill the alien, try to live." plot line. Things start to get odd (odd in a good way though... makes it interesting) and keep on going that way until a little while after

Removing filler from DBZ is like putting continuity in Marvel and DC.


It just won't work.

Kai sucks.

The south Park episode where Speilberg and Lucas r**e Indian Jones comes to mind.
