I mean seriously he was the "fastest in the universe" they could have just saved him for later and made him real, but instead they just made him trash for goku to pick up

>tfw TFS is so much better than the original you can't watch the original anymore but no one will watch TFS with you because the first several episodes aren't any good because the guys were still figuring their shit out and now the latest episodes aren't as good either because there aren't as many jokes to mine out of the Cell Saga
>>
>>137486330
He was "the fastest in the universe" - besides Ginyu - and Freeza - and King Cold, etc. The main issue there is that his "fastest in the universe title was completely meaningless, just making him slightly faster than Recoom and Butter, but still too slow to be able to do anything against someone actually significantly faster than them.

Still, I can't help but feel that they could have done better. Maybe made Trunks less of a wet blanket, for one.

Well in the end all techniques/strengths/weaknessess went out the window, and the only way for someone to win is to have a higher powerlevel.

I know it isn't exactly related to this thread but how does yugioh abridged manage to remain still funny despite having 15 more episodes than DBZ abridged? is it because yugioh lends itself for funnier crap or because the dude doesn't give a damn whether the plot is slightly coherent

>>137489047
Going back to YGOA is hard because a lot, and I mean a lot, of jokes are really fucking dated.
>>
>>137489047
DBZA peaked very early on so everything afterwards feels less funny even though it's still pretty good.
>>
>>137486739
There are a lot of jokes to make out the cell saga though; it's the worst written of the bunch. Their problem is in characterization. They were more original with the humor and particularly the banter they did during namek. Here, a lot of the villains are kinda just too dull and samey.
>>
>>137489215
They're not dated though, the people making them are.
YGOA is Reddit.

>>137489411

The androids were enjoyable, as was the first Cell (mainly due to his voice, though.)

Techniques and strategies only matter if you're somewhere in the same realm of power levels, which is pretty equal.

There are so many great throwaway lines and digs at the bizarre fucked-up nature of the DBZ world.

Does most of the AMV Hell series count?

Otherwise, Matt Page's work is pretty solid:

And I have a soft spot for dance themed AMVs:

AMV Hell does not count, I personally hate them but I excuse them most of the time.
And all of these are exactly what I hate in AMVs, sure, they can edit a bit and the editing is synced with the music, but it still is pretentious and unnecessary editing just for the sake of it.
I don't see the point in it and still belive that 99% of AMV creators are 12 year old linkin park kids.
The last 1% is the ones that actually keep this up after they get older and try to make mature content for intelligent and grown up individuals such as themselves.

And fandubs are trash without any room for arguing.

I'm especially baffled that the cast of Ghost in the Shell re-enacting the Robots conversation from Sealab is apparently

>pretentious and unnecessary editing just for the sake of it.

It's funny. You know, that thing, humor? A subset of fun? There's more to enjoying anime than high-quality WEBMs of a perverted high schooler peeling a band-aid off a vampire's vagina.

>>137492737
>>137492820
Okay, seriously stop replying to that. You're only doing what he wants.
>>
That was just his title. Titles are meaningless. How can he be the fastest when aliens exist than can do instant transmission? He was already beaten by an entire alien race, and they don't even train for it.

He's "the fastest in the universe" just like mr.satan is the "strongest in the universe".
Simple as that.

>>137492877

I should've known the moment I saw "for intelligent and grown up individuals such as themselves," really.

They're actually surveying if fans would want a 'remake' of the earlier episodes: in particular fixing the writing.
>>
>>137494368

Shit, where? That'd be fucking fantastic.
>>
>>137486739
I really like post-saiyan TFS, but the earlier eps are unwatchable for me now.
>>
>>137494483

On their Podcast. They said they'd do it after Cell Saga's over though.
>>
>>137494677

Namek was their very best. The Ginyus, Super Kami Guru, Freeza, Little Green, all of it made it amazing.

That's not the problem. The problem is that they just aren't that funny and it's starting to show with both DBZ and Hellsing.
>>
>>137495006

They had exactly one good Hellsing joke and they used it in the first episode.

>INTEGRA: Whoever’s behind these vampire attacks... it has to be some kind of large organized group.
>ALUCARD: Like the Nazis?
>INTEGRA: That would be retarded.
>[Meanwhile...]
>THE MAJOR: Gentlemen… ve… are NAZIS!
>>
>>137494800
Personally I prefer the Saiyan saga, mainly because of Napa but the writing was top notch during Namek.
>>
>>137495067
Hellsing abridged had plenty of good jokes beside that, what are you on about?
>>
>>137486739
I dont even remember the last time TFS was funny.
>>
>>137494738
Was Perfect Cell's introduction still their most recent episode? I know they got hit with some takedown shit, but is that really still the most recent episode? Because I just saw a 'breakdown!' of said episode come out within the last week, and...those usually come out an episode or two after the new one.
>>
Burter attack speed is god tier for combos in the games.
>>
>>137486739
Still, you can't deny Shin Kikoho was the best fucking TFS episode.
