Whoo, I just caught a bit of Toonami for the first time in a long time. o_o

So the host of Toonami, Bob/Tom/Whateverhisnameis can fly in space now with the little rocket pack on his back? o_O Bah ... I think I liked him better when he was the little pot-bellied nuclear thingiemabobber ... he's way too "cool" now. -_- I swear the number of things on his hands increase with each subsequent redesign.

lol. The "next dimension." It's been awhile since I've seen that episode of DBZ ... ah, in the next few eps ... *_* It's nearing the time when I first got into anime. Vegeta-sama, sankyuu!

Tired, tired. I think I have a couple of more doodles that I might try to CG tomorrow. Tralala.

[Edit - Cripes, have you seen those new Snapple commercials? Those are sincerely disturbing. o_o Here's another reason why I stopped watching TV ...]
Current Mood: smelly
Current Music: ... I'm hearing Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust songs in my head

:lmao!: "The next dimension..." Those were the days! And now when I watch it, I remember the stuff they edited in that made NO sense. Like when Nappa blew up that town, there's all these people standing around that you KNOW are dead meat, but the people on the news said something inane like, "Thankfully that part of the city was empty today."


Somehow, though, the show still managed to appeal to me. Vegeta was also the character that got me to stay... it's interesting to see someone with actual personal conflicts (grey areas) rather than just plain "good guys" vs. "bad guys." *nods*

Ahaha, I like how we can look back and laugh on it now. But back then, all the websites I read were seriously pissed off at every little change.

Ditto on the websites... those people used to make me worry about what was worse: The idiotic changes in the dub version or the people who hung on their every flaw. I mean... O_O How much time do people have on their hands, anyway?

I enjoy dubs as a different form of the original. Most of the time dubs are actually good in their own right... I mean, sure, the edits are sometimes a bit MUCH (like Roshi calling it "Mad Cow" technique rather than "Drunken Tiger"), but it just kind of makes it funnier.

Of course, I didn't start learning there even WERE changes until about a year later... But I think enjoying it without knowing just proves that the show is good anyway. Or something.

I actually didn't mind the DBZ dub too much. ^_^ I was always interested in knowing what edits had been made, though, as far as major things went ... I could've cared less about some of the more trivial things. ^_^; I just wanted to watch the show and have fun watching it, hehe. Since I enjoyed watching the dub, it seemed like an attack when they criticized every little word or whatnot. o_o;

I once found this hilarous MST3K thing of some of the dubbed DBZ episodes ... man, I wish I still had that link. o_o You'd enjoy it, lol

The Snapple commercials are great! XD
