General Discussion » Dragon Ball Z Abridged continues to be hilarious

I don't usually endorse posting threads about youtube videos, but Dragon Ball Z Abridged is an exception, and any Dragon Ball Z fans who haven't seen it before really need to check it out. Abridged anime series on youtube vary in quality and hilarity, but Dragon Ball Z is, in my opinion, easily the best of them all (and it should be too considering how many weeks apart each episode is released).

So if your a fan of Dragon Ball Z and haven't seen this before, have at it:

If you enjoyed that, you should check it out from the beginning. Some of the earlier episodes aren't quite as good as this one, but it's worth watching the lot.

Those of you who have watched it, what have your favourite moments been?

Off-Topic » How to earn game cards or money to spend on amazon

This isn't really the place for that, and this looks a little spammy/advertise-ish so I'm just going to lock this thread.

Also for future reference, threads that aren't specifically about anime or manga belong in off-topic, not general discussion.

General Discussion » Offical Subs vs. Fan Subs

Usually I'd pick official subs, they're more professional and I'd hope more accurate. In Clannad and Clannad After Story's case though, fan subs all the way. The official sub for that show isn't anywhere near as good. One of the character's defining characteristics is that she refers to herself in third person, and in the official sub they completely ignored that and had her talk like everyone else.

So yeah, in some cases, the fan sub groups just care more about a series and it's fans, and because of that the subbing is better.

General Discussion » rio rainbow gate ending (Spoiler)

@ShadowKnight508 said:

I tried to watch this show, heck, I pretty much forced myself to watch at least the first 2 episodes of Rio: Rainbow Gate, but I just could never get into it. The animation quality is nice, the main female character (Rio Rollins) is interesting, but the weird story and uninspired plot just fall flat in my opinion.

Don't get me wrong...I am not saying that people should not watch this show, I am just saying that I found it hard to watch.

Yep, that is exactly how I felt about that show. Rio is likable, but the story and premise of the show just didn't do anything for me.

@ShadowKnight508 said:

@Newten: Agreed. I would love to see Panty and Stocking (with Garterbelt) get the green light for a second season. The 1st season was priceless xD

They pretty much confirmed it in the Panty & Stocking soundtrack, there was a hidden track on it with Panty yammering on about season 2 and Stocking trying to shut her up. As far as I know, the show was really popular and had a lot of exposure, and the last episode left it on a massive cliff-hanger, so I can't see it not getting a second season.

General Discussion » rio rainbow gate ending (Spoiler)

I kind of hope not... it wasn't a good anime.

I'd rather see a second season of Highschool of the Dead or Panty & Stocking personally. Which I imagine are both going to happen.

Off-Topic » whats the last you ate?!

I was about to eat a cheese and mayo sandwich, then I spotted a jar of caramelised onion chutney and decided to try it.

Oh my god, I think I have a new favourite thing to put in sandwiches.

The mayonnaise probably wasn't needed though, chutney kind of overpowered it I think. Man it was delicious.

@EganTheVile1: Megatron 2 and II work fine as aliases in this case.

@EganTheVile1: Renamed to Seacons.

@digifiend: Renamed to Transformers.

@Destinyheroknight: Renamed to Magical Mundus.

@shmion1984s: Renamed to Nina Esuko and fixed the Japanese.

@maimran91: @Toxin45: Looks like Ultimate Muscle and Montana Max were taken care of.

@Mechanical_Ape: Renamed to Hanshin Koshien Stadium, no point adding the short version as an alias since it's already included in the full name.

@EganTheVile1: Renamed to Shipwreck and Roadblock.

@buhssuht: Changed to Mayuri and fixed the o in Asuha's name.

@scott2029: Renamed to "Karin-sama of Karin Tower" although that is clearly the Japanese name. Myself or one of the other mods will have to change them to the proper English titles at some point.

@Juuhachi: Changed to Anri Sonohara.

@Obsidian609: Renamed to Kasuka Heiwajima.

Sorry that all took so long guys, looks like this thread was really backed up.

Bug Reporting » Wiki Points Database Error (SERIOUS ERROR)

@sickVisionz: Yeah I know what you mean, in fairness though the Whiskey Media engineers have a lot to deal with and there are usually ways around the bugs we have, like adding the series for the user who can't. But yeah, if this is a Whiskey-wide bug I'm sure it's either already being dealt with or will be soon enough.

Bug Reporting » Wiki Points Database Error (SERIOUS ERROR)

@Halberdierv2: I wouldn't worry too much, you have a high amount of points as is. If there's a bug in the point system it will be affecting lots of users if not all of us, I'm sure it'll be fixed eventually.
