[10:42] <FireFly_9> Happy Lunar New Year 2006, Everyone.
[10:42] <@Dr_Xadium> Lunar went downhill fast as far as fansubbing goes
[10:42] <FireFly_9> Not *that* Lunar.
[10:43] <@Dr_Xadium> Sorry, it's still a bit early for me.
[10:51] * @S.X. Aino is listening to: [#aznmp3] SunSet Swish - My Pace [TV RIP].mp3 [128 kbps]
[10:51] <@Dr_Xadium> Why are you listening to that Sakura
[10:52] <@S.X. Aino> I dunno, the invasion of the Dead Moon into Bleach is just so surreal
[10:52] <@Dr_Xadium> It's not *really* the Dead Moon you know
[10:52] <@S.X. Aino> OH COME ON THEY'RE OBVIOUSLY the rejects that couldn't make it
[10:53] <@Dr_Xadium> ...
[10:53] <FireFly_9> The Dead Moon was more of a challenge than Toei's anime let on.
[10:54] <FireFly_9> Did you know that Haruka-poppa, Setsuna-momma, Michiru-momma and I actually had to intervene?
[10:54] <@Dr_Xadium> We'rent you still a baby at the time?
[10:54] * FireFly_9 notes the chronology in this instance is mangled
[10:55] <FireFly_9> After I had been reawakened by Neherenia's Mirror Paredory creatures there was a showdown in her circus tent.
[10:56] <flame_SNIPER> What the HELL was the point of the Dead Moon Circus?
[10:56] <FireFly_9> Hallo Rei-san
[10:56] <@S.X. Aino> Mornin!
[10:56] <flame_SNIPER> Good Morning, minna-sa
[10:56] <flame_SNIPER> ^san
[10:57] <@Dr_Xadium> Perhaps Nephelenia, having come from that child-like mindset, assumed the clowns were dark and menacing?
[10:57] <@S.X. Aino> Like the Insane Clown Posse of the Moon Kingdom?
[10:58] <flame_SNIPER> Insane Who?
[10:58] <C'est_la_V> These Gaijin Rappers who dress like clowns and crab their crotches
[10:58] <C'est_la_V> ^grab
[10:58] <flame_SNIPER> Her villains were just STUPID
[10:59] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> hay bich dat sit was tuff
[10:59] <// J_Daito //> Don't you all feel ashamed that you had to be powered up to fight clowns?
[10:59] <flame_SNIPER> WHAT DID YOU SAY JEDITE
[10:59] <C'est_la_V> ....
[10:59] <C'est_la_V> that's not funny!!
[11:00] <// J_Daito //> Am I *wrong*?
[11:00] <// J_Daito //> You needed Pegasus to Level you to fight CLOWNS
[11:00] <C'est_la_V> Urusai
[11:00] <flame_SNIPER> That was... shameful.
[11:01] * flame_SNIPER hates to admit it, but it was shameful
[11:01] <FireFly_9> Meh, SuperS on the whole was an exercise in Shame.
[11:02] * // J_Daito // just laughs
[11:02] <@Dr_Xadium> But you senshi are so powerful, I fail to see why you didn't just smash through the enemy...
[11:03] <C'est_la_V> Shut up Baka-chan you don't know anything
[11:03] <flame_SNIPER> Right stay OUT of this

Bird Studio is the comic studio founded by Akira Toriyama, where he works with his assistant. The name for the studio is a pun off his own name, Toriyama (tori means bird in Japanese). Toriyama does almost all of the work in Bird Studio, his assistant does mostly backrounds. The studio has not been very active over the last few years. That's because he doesn't want anyone in his business, but I got the tapes, so bam. ahahahaha, suckers.

Also, when piccolo and bardock come back in the other dbgt, the ultimate black star balls come back when piccolo does. The earth dragonballs are within goku forever, but he can still die if killed or virus. Old age is not a factor if you are a pure saiyajin, but if you are half and less than half, you will age faster, but will not die from old age. The goku jr. gaiden tv special was irrelevant and was made to extend dbgt. it aired right after the Bebi Saga, but was irrelevant because trunks, gohan, and goten are not that much older than pan, but yet they were dead. But in dbgt part 2, they explain that everyone goes their separate ways and loses contact, vegita went training on his own as well as goku did. goodbye.

• 02/01/06 10:02pm

It has a lot of movies in between the 100 years of goku's training and merging with the dragonballs, but those focus on life on earth without goku, or the dragonballs.

Potomas, that is what makes it so funny. You lived in Japan and didn't manage to find it. I went to Japan about 5 or 6 years ago for 2 weeks, me and my mom. She talked to people and got info on it. She told me that After the 64th episode of dbgt in November 3, 1997, Mr. Toriyama continued it under his studio called Bird Studios. That is where the other DBGT episodes come in, and was released straight on video. It has a lot of movies in between the 100 years of goku's training and merging with the dragonballs, but those focus on life on earth without goku. Also, there are lots of episodes after the 100th tenkaichi budokai tournament with goku jr. and vegita jr. when ancestor goku comes back to earth for good. Then, the z ultimate series comes in the year 2000 and is released on video as well. So that means it hasn't actually aired in japan, that is why most of my tapes are raw japanese kanji. Also, I found lots more people in New York who have these tapes and even Little Tokyo, California. Do I even need to say Japan. Basically, the people in japan who don't know about it don't want to know, or not searching hard enough. There are plenty of people who know about it over there, and why would they care, that is like something they see everyday. The rest of the world thinks that it's over and then, bam AT dbgt, and z ultimate. The reason I think it won't come out is because it's too freaking long. Youll be sitting there for 12 years with life passing you by. Also, no one seems to care for dragonball too much anymore except for me. Those series are in low demand even in japan, so it will take longer to come out. Eventually, the other dbgt will come out soon with the crap load of movies, but the z ultimate will take a long assed time to come out. Also, if you don't believe me, check this out. Toei has no knowledge of this, but bird studios does. they are 2 separate studios. Bird Studios was bought by Akira Toriyama at the end of Dragonball Z. They have a website for Toei animation, but not for Bird Studios. Hmmmmmm, I wonder why? Because he isn't sharing even 34% of his works to public and wants to keep it that way. Besides, he is still making money in asia off of the dbgt and z ultimate tapes, heck, he is still making money off of dragonball z, so what's the rush for him. I forgot to menchine that Bird Studios has staff members also, so AT is not by himself working on this, it is just made the exact way he wants it. I am going this summer, so if u do live in japan potamos, I will see you there.

As for Chibi-Usa chewing up the scenery, isn't that what happens whenever you bring a kid into your life? It's not long before everything that goes on revolves around him/her.

Bogey • 02/01/06 09:43pm

I must agree with the Lurker as well, besides, there definately WAS more maturity among the senshi, and the Trio were very well rounded villains..

Madeleine [e-mail] • 01/31/06 09:58am

Damnit, you people are making me like SuperS

STOP IT T_T

Furu [e-mail] • 01/31/06 08:31am

I agree with the Lurker... SuperS was a very good series. The main thing that let it down was a lack of internal structure, and the Trio's arc did go on for for too long. But the villains were great (Zirconia is one of my all-time favourite villains), the art was better than ever, the music was on a par with S, and the finale is one of the best constructed in the series' history. People are determined to reject SuperS on the basis that it was a bit silly, but the R season was, in my opinion, guilty of a far worse crime: it was dull. Cardboard cutout villains and a plot that was recycled from the previous year, but with some of the nouns changed... that was R. Give me silly over dull any day...

dooky • 01/31/06 04:17am

(The Lurker creeps back from the LIMBO of COMPUTER-IN-THE-SHOP HELL to defend SuperS!)

Actually, The Dead Moon Circus started off scary and REALLY disturbing. It was like watching an anime version of "Freaks". This changed pretty fast, with the Lemurs becoming more silly than terrifying; but still, a lot of the Lemur characer designs were extremely well done and interesting. And HAD SuperS been played dark and grim instead of for cute, the Circus would have provided plenty of fear.

(The Lurker also notes that the Lemurs were being powered both by Nehelenia's dark energy AND the Senshi energy being siphoned out of the Amazon Quartet / Asteroid Senshi. It's no wonder the Inners needed Pegasus' power to level to the point they could take on that combination.)

(And while the Lurker was not terribly fond of some of the ways the Senshi were depicted in SuperS - Usagi's maturity retrogression, for instance - he notes there was also some interesting character development among them, too (Rei's views on what being a Miko means, for one); and the relationship between ChibiUsa and Pegasus WAS sweet...)

(The Trio were also some of the most well rounded villains in the whole SM mythos... Fisheye, especially...)
