why does vegeta call himself 'prince'?
after his died was killed, didn't he become king?
also, his dad died well before the saiyan saga, so vegeta's been king for a while
which makes it even weirder
>calls himself prince well into adulthood
How did a maniacal prince of a barbaric race turn into a pussy-whipped family man?
good point, but even when he's on that diatribe during the majin saga about going soft I'm pretty sure he's still calling himself prince
you can definitely be a king or queen in exile
my point is, there's absolutely no reason a person like vegeta would pass up the opportunity to call himself king
even if it's just over 5 subjects
>in exile because their home planet was destroyed and bringing it back at this point would just be so ronery
Originally he kept the prince with him so the king would stay in line, but afterwords? Vegeta is good at his job and is pretty much a living trophy, no reason to kill him until he grows to a level where it's required.
thanks, I was pretty sure my question was a sound one, especially with responses like >>112012452
vegeta is king
make no mistake
>even though he does
only if it meant the saiyan race came back under his rule
>implying goku isn't known for passing his responsibilities on to others
>implying he wouldn't just give vegeta the kingship
>implying vegeta's ego isn't big enough to seize the opportunity regardless
>because seriously, is he going to let anyone else have it?
>he didn't get an opportunity to play Hyrule Warriors, Zelda U or see the 4th Eva Rebuild
I'm done caring about dragon ball z today
I'm going to go watch some robin williams movies

>OP image isn't a screencap from the Orange Bricks
today OP was a pretty cool guy
I believe Trunks was a little stronger. A problem when they first started fusing was that they needed to have about equal power, and I think Trunks was the one who needed to adjust to match Goten.
I had a shit ton of Dragon Box screenshots on my last computer, I should rewatch the entire series and take some more since I got all 7 boxes right behind me.
I already got plenty of Dragon Ball, though I wish I figured out how to make it so subtitles don't show up, I don't want to have to turn them off just to take a picture...
That line killed me the first time I heard it.
I just don't get how he was stronger than Krillin.
It really made no sense to me.
Sure, Krillin did actually hurt him and force him to use his psychic powers, but how in the hell was blue even remotely close?
Gay culture evolved way too rapidly.
In the 80s, it was all about leather, chains, aviators and goatees. And pretty roses in the background.
Now it's all about being FABULOUTH. They use more moisturizer and foundation than straight women. They try to be a substitute for straight women, rather than being all manly; ironic, considering the whole point of being gay is to be attracted to manly stuff.
More like Freeza was an after thought.
>Now it's all about being FABULOUTH. They use more moisturizer and foundation than straight women. They try to be a substitute for straight women, rather than being all manly; ironic, considering the whole point of being gay is to be attracted to manly stuff.
Dear god I hate the retards who do this.
"Why does no one accept me?" Because you look like a moron.
Otokosuki and he are the only gay characters and they're both big ol' stereotypes.
>Funimation will never release Dragon Ball Dragon Box
They made a million buckaroos with Battle of Gods in the US, I hope they get shifted into doing more Dragon Boxes. Their season sets still look like shit, and I don't like the English credits or titles.
There are two factors at play which could explain why Vegeta still refers to himself as the prince of Saiyans rather than the king.
1) The monarchy of the Saiyan race dictates that the new ruler has to officially be declared after the death of the previous ruler.
2) Vegeta respects his father as the king of Saiyans and doesn't wish to take the title of 'king' away from his father, even in death.
Again, these are two theories that have never been confirmed by Toriyama.
There's a good set of encodes with subs floating on nyaa right now, but I managed to actually get a set of the disc images.
There was a set of torrents on nyaa sometime last summer of the ISOs, but one of them was dead. I ended up DDLing a ridiculous amount of multi-part .rars for a few weeks. Those links have got to be long dead by now.
After that I demuxed the discs and brought them into avisynth/virtualdub and synced them with the blue bricks for subtitles/dub audio, and muxed together some custom DVDs. It took over a month but it was worth it in the end. I'm doing the same for the movie discs now, and I have GT to work on once I finish watching Z again/
I hope by the time they get around to it, they start pumping out good 1080p versions starting with DB and THEN Z ... with JP title cards.
>things that will never happen
I'm sorry, I only took screencaps of stuff I thought was funny from the first Australian boxset, I missed Goku saying "What's a bitchy-bitchy girl?" though... I don't have many pictures from the American Dragon Box Z either.
I love the manga version, and the parts with General Blue, but the lead up to the Red Ribbon arc were so boring, I don't like the filler in the Red Ribbon arc. Muscle Tower and General Blue are some of the best moments early on though.
I don't think they can do Dragon Ball in 1080p, they actually have film sources for DBZ, but for DB and GT it's just video, I think that means they can't do blurays for them.
I never gave the movies a shot, but I checked out Battle of Gods, and while I liked it there was only one thing I was confused about, when did he have a half brother and what movie was that in?
Taable isn't Vegeta's half-brother, he's his little brother. And he appeared in the 2008 JSAT special where two of Freeza's long lost henchmen Aba and Cado chase him to Earth.
or the shit sandwich they filtered the image through, pic related
Yeah, I think Funi is still sitting on ancient digibetas for DB. I'm hoping Toei will pull some shit and make a new transfer of their own film, then license it out.
>things that will also never happen
These new blu-rays are so awful, the level sets were 10x better than that shit.
(pic related from level sets)
How did that work out for freeza? Plus:
>If an enemy I have just killed has a younger sibling or offspring anywhere, I will find them and have them killed immediately, instead of waiting for them to grow up harboring feelings of vengeance towards me in my old age.
The evil overlord list is a must read for wannabe tyrants.
Level sets were basically king tier, but I would have preferred they have given it a little more bitrate, and of course JP title cards. Plus Funi's film is multigenerational, so if Toei ends up doing their own BDs we'll have a lot better color definition in the dark areas.
Yeah the only other issue I can think of was the crushed blacks.
I hope Toei releases a blu ray but I hope to god they don't remaster it, have you seen Boo arc Kai? Looks awful.
This is seriously the last image.
Don't worry, they're not Dragon Box quality or nuffin'.
The series got less funny around here I think. Kuririn died, Muten-Roshi died, Chaozu died, Piccolo Daimao nearly killed Goku, then Piccolo's offspring nearly killed Goku again.
The raw film of the level sets before altered looks so much better, I don't mind the noise and the grain, but they were still great looking nonetheless.
Boo Kai looks terribad. If they put out a BD of DB/Z that looks like the first run of Kai, but with a little less DNR, I'd be very happy with that.
Speaking of Kai,
>those 35mm episodes
By the way, has anyone heard the fucking beautiful master audio for DBZ?
This was taken from the "Big Box CD" which had episodes 229 and 237 on it in original master audio, has anyone got this?
Holy fuck, every time I hear the broadcast audio I'm still blown away. I want to believe that this audio will be found/ripped from fan VHS recordings and end up on a home release one day
I remember the tiny butthurt for this translation, I'm surprised this stayed in the Dragon Box Z release.
>Jontron on Twitter
But there are some bits of DB that are pretty colorful as well, Daimao at one point calls Goku 'lower than slug shit,' not to mention Kuririn's 'homo' line.
I think kei17 (Japanese fan from the Kanzenshuu forums) had all the tapes, Chris Sabat found out about it and how Toei ignores the fan's recordings and asked for them publicly, no idea how they'll be used, but hopefully we'll get some special "HARDCORE FANS ONLY, TOP SECRET, SPECIAL BROADCAST AUDIO, DRAGON BOX COLOR CORRECTED 1080P, DON'T TELL MOMMY" special edition.
No wait, found another.
I want to believe. I think I remember reading that someone's got all or most of the original series as well. And it's been said that GT masters are still lying around.
Funi tried to half-ass it on their new BDs by EQing the audio, but that ended up just as poorly as you can expect.
>The series got less funny around here I think. Kuririn died, Muten-Roshi died, Chaozu died, Piccolo Daimao nearly killed Goku, then Piccolo's offspring nearly killed Goku again.
Nah, it still had good comedy in my opinion.
Goku and Yajirobe arguing about who was going to eat Tambourine was hilarious.
Depending on who animated the episode, it's brown a lot of the time.
I don't really go there that often now.
Well...Saiyan hair is "black"
But in the Dragon Boxes and Kai you can see that Raditz has "blue" hair.
And Nappa has "invisible" hair.
Goku's hair has dark grey shading in some detailed art work.
I guess it's only really black in the manga...
You don't become king if you don't have a kingdom, subjects, etc.
He was the prince when his dad was kill and his planet blown to bits. And he still calls himself that with pride, but you can't into king without any of that shit.
Just finished DBZ. 10/10 would watch again in 2 years.
Need help on finding best english subbed torrent of Dragon Ball GT
Have no interest in english dub.
>Don't delete me - edition.
I asking for BEST QUALITY torrent, I've already googled and on several resources and all torrents are shit quality or dead.
inb5: this is not /adv/
This nest of cold blood anime faggots, someone here bound to know what i asking for because searched this sometime by himself.
Your best bet will probably be
It's ripped from the green brick release in the US, so its a little blurry compared to the Dragon Box, and english title cards only. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any DBox encodes with subs anywhere on the internet for GT, only hard-to-find or poorly seeded ISOs
I watched entire DB and DBZ in 2 months.
Do you think i will be scared by mere 64 episodes?
HAHAHA! There is no stopping for me now!
but it's 64 episodes of ass. (Give or take a few choice episodes.)
Don't be a fool. I'm trying to save you. All you're going to feel is remorse.
Then massive feels because the ending is really fucking great. The final battle is ass though
You could even buy the old single DVDs for super cheap if you felt like it, the encoding is shit but the picture is a close approximation of the Dragon Box since it's the most recent series.
Not in my country because of shipping prices.
I really prefer .mkv because watch on tablet from time to time.
Holy hell someone actually put subbed ISOs up? That's some heavy shit
points for best post in the thread
1. if this were true then nappa would have overseen his coronation as soon as they were a safe distance from vegeta (the planet)
2. unlikely since vegeta hardly references his father at all in the original manga. if he felt this strongly he probably would have been introducing himself as 'prince vegeta, son of king vegeta, ruler of all saiyans' or something like that
jesus christ I'm getting sick of answering this over and over again
>second time in this post alone
>currently watching aladdin
>came back and saw my thread was up to 100+ posts
Instead of starting a new thread I'm just going to latch onto this one:
My situation is, I've never watched Dragonball, or Dragonball Z. I would love to watch DbZ but I need to know, should I watch Dragonball first? Also, which version of Z should I watch (as in which dub, which release, Kai or not.) I'm really interested in this series but I have no idea where to start.
Definitely watch the original Dragonball first, as for which version Kai changes several voice actors, some of which are improvements (Frieza) and some not so much (Gohan), and while they do cut out some of the insane amount of filler there were a few bits that were genuinely funny, like the driving lesson episode. That leaves it as pretty much a toss up, but either way the funimation english dub is by far the best, as Sean Schemmel's Goku is just excellent
Dragon Ball Z is just Dragon Ball episodes 154-444. Don't think of them as separate at all.
Watch it in Japanese if you want consistency and the actual story, watch it in English if you want a mediocre dub from 1999-2003, with all the script, characterization, and music changes that come with that.
If your intent with that video was to persuade me to watch the sub, it worked. Do you have a torrent link perhaps to a subbed release?
Thank you for the advice.
For the first series you have two options:
The xboxhuge encodes of the Dragon Boxes for best quality -- other than the actual Dragon Box DVDs, this will be the best available quality for Dragon Ball :
If space/download time is an issue, there's a set of encodes from the US DVDs by DBNL, but this is an old torrent so you may have to snoop around for another version:
For Z, you'll find all sorts of shit, mostly from the shitty cropped US DVDs from 2007-2009. Your only real option here if you care about quality at all is a set of Dragon Box encodes. There's a set by DBNL here:
On top of all that, there are these recent torrents that just popped up of custom subbed Dragon Box ISOs that may be worth a try. I started downloading one and the DL speed was pretty fast, but I'm not sure what the sub quality is like.
Good luck, and enjoy
Just finished downloading disc 1 of that ISO torrent for DB, it's the exact same subs as the encode one I listed first, and I can confirm those are legit.
All he has to do is pretend he's chanelling osamu tezuka and claim that all of his characters are part of a fictional cast of actors and the reason they look the same is because it's the same actors portraying different people.
There, everything's just hunky-dory.
Manga > Anime
DB > DBZ
Tenkaichi > Budokai
[peak] bulma > videl > chichi
These are facts we must all accept into our lives.
Someone once said that the reason that Androids look so different from his regular designs was intentional so that they would stand out as non-human. But it proves he can change it up if he wanted to.
funny how the cyborgs actually look more like normal humans than everyone else.
admittedly, there are the huge foreheads.
>>this will never be a thing
This seems like exactly the type of thing that Toriyama would make a spin-off gag manga out of.
Bardock, Gine, Pan, Gohan and Videl as Saiyaman Sentai Senshi.
if we saw Bardock SSJ are we going to see Turles SSJ?
A prince regent is a prince who rules instead of the actual ruler. e.g. if the ruler has become demented.
Vegeta does not reign. There's nothing left to reign because everything has been destroyed. Thus he's just the prince. Neither King because he's not crowned, nor regent because he doesn't reign.
i just figured it was because he had respect for his dad and planet/race or something like that and claiming to be king would just be an ego buff
>that one moment in battle of the gods where everyone is arguing about who is pure
It was like I was on /a/
>There isn't a single release with JP broadcast audio
cui is adorable
I should have said "the best audio you can find", but still.
One day some magical anon will take the time and effort to sync up the best audio with the best recordings of the episodes. Surely.
If Bulma got the Son-kun, would it be for the better?
I mean he was the first person to see her vagoo, and Yamcha will always be a loser.
>Only Goten is pure
But Goten grows up to be the lewdest of them all. He actively tries to get girls.
I'd rather have this>>112035890
than Brolly SS4
It's too late.
You're getting Super Saiyan 4 Broly.
Have some girl Super Saiyans as consolation.
>What if Vegeta, Raditz, & Nappa were Muten Roshi's students
I always assumed it was a combination of respect for his father and the fact that he never got an official ceremony to become the new king. Vegeta's pride is exactly the reason he wouldn't call himself King, after Frieza killed the real king and blew up the planet it would be like spitting on their grades and taking advantage of his most hated enemy's evil deeds.
