Well, since the last thread >>50094 is maxed out, here's a new one.

Here's a link to the last regular DBZ episode (ep 25) that was posted last thread:
TFS Abridged Parody Episode 25youtube thumb

Here's a link to the Lord Slug Abridged:
TFS Movie: Lord Slug Abridgedyoutube thumb

And here's a link to Team Four Star's site:

All lord slug did was remind me why I was always confused by the DBZ movies.

If Nail is in Piccolo's head then that means this is sometime after Namek. Which means that Goku SHOULD ALREADY BE SUPER SAYAN AT THIS POINT.

Again, comedy, don't put too much thought into it, but I could never really pin down when ANY DBZ movie was suppose to "take place".
>> No. 68412
The movies aren't cannon. Also, I'm pretty sure Nail wasn't talking to Piccolo in the actual movie.
>> No. 68413
Movies are non-canon and Nail talking with Piccolo was an abridged addtion (And I hope he stays in Piccolo's head for a long time)
>> No. 68414

oh god and when he fuses with Kami that's... uuuuuhhggguuuu

Yep, they'll be having a nice threesome in there! George Takei will be happy, anyway.

I miss Gohan saying "I need an adult." There were a couple times in both those vids that he coulda used it. However, the fact that they shoehorned Vegeta using TiVo to record Krillin getting pwned made me lol irl, so that was good.

I love you all.
The snark between Piccolo and Nail is already going to be good, but with Kami in the mix, I just know that Nail and Kami will gang up on Piccolo and poke fun at him for his many, many issues.
Double-teaming him inside his head, if you will.

Iguana Street.
>> No. 68486

I think the Iguana Street jokes were my second favorite bits. Close tie with Goku: Champion of Christmas.

Favorite was anything involving Piccolo.

That whole thing made me wonder: do they ever involve buildings like that in any other time in Dragonball, Z or otherwise? DBZ tended to feel like a fantasy world with no real world issues most of the time.*

Piccolo was actually using the building to his advantage and I can't recall getting thrown through windows ever being a thing. After a while, the fights were always in the skies over barren wastelands, tournament arenas or other dimensions and planets. The only thing I remember was a brief thing in The Android Saga. Might have been neat to see them rely on the terrain. I guess when you can fly and blocking a punch makes a shockwave that breaks windows, you tend to take fights to buttfuck nowhere 100% of the time.

*(I know for sure they'd never mention racism towards anything, much less Namekians and not getting mugged on Iguana Street.)
>> No. 68487
Yeah, generally if they're ever in a city, someone suggests they move the fight to a place that huge, completely desolate a million miles wide and could never exist anywhere on earth, but it's right over there.
>> No. 68489
Well, they've fought inside of cities a few times; the Trunks Special and movie 13 specifically come to mind. If we're counting the first series, (if I remember correctly) Goku fought Piccolo Sr. at the world capital and the final battle with the Red Ribbons took place in the Red Ribbon Army's fortress (Not really a city, but it was still inside of a building and it was awesome. Muscle Tower was also pretty awesome).

Well, George hasn't said it yet, so I will:
Oh myyyy

Piccolo has always been my favorite character in DBZ; the abridged episodes just make me like him more because they write him some great lines.

I've always wondered at this; where and when do Goku and the others live on Planet Earth? Did WW3 happen, and therefore we have lots of barren places now but all the new tech like flying cars and Capsule Corp.? Or is this just a fanciful alternate reality, where there are hundreds of thousands of square miles of mountainous terrain that is completely wild and/or barren, and a smaller population that doesn't go too far outside established city limits?

Obviously, I have way too much time on my hands.
>> No. 68494
Considering there are large dinosaurs roaming about the world, I'd say it's Toriyama's alternate vision of Earth.
>> No. 68496

Technically, it's an alternate version of Earth that bears very little similarity to our own.

If you wanted to conjecture, though, you could say that perhaps it is a very distant past, millions of years ago (hence the dinosaurs and Pangea-like world-map) the evidence of the civilization which was wiped out long before we showed up. Obviously, any Saiyan blood has been diluted down to absolutely nothing by now, but we might still have a Namekian god somewhere up there.

Obviously, the Burj Dubai was an attempt to replicate Korin's Tower...
>> No. 68506
Also there's that bit in the Android saga where Goku is like, let's get out of this city near South City and fight somewhere completely desolate, and then android 20 completely desolates the city.
>> No. 68667
Just watched BBT Abridged Movie.

I love that in this age of abridged series with full casts of VAs, LK still basically does everything himself. I think all of two women in that were actually voiced by his gal.
>> No. 68668

>LK still basically does everything himself

Except all the parts he didn't do?

I mean yea LK still makes up the majority of the voicework. But IIRC him and his gal got divorced so Yusei's "girlfriend" that isn't his bike was probably voiced by a friend of his.

I'm seriously hoping Nail sticks around in Piccolo's head for awhile; the dialogue TFS writes for them is great.
>> No. 69498

In theory, they'd keep it in there until Piccolo fuses with Kami, so they can have a threesome clusterfuck there in Piccolo's head.

In practice... I can all but guarantee they're going to stop by the end of the Frieza saga. Fansub groups inevitably disband when everyone graduates and joins the workforce, and they no longer have time for this kind of stuff. Already, the time between new episodes is increasing and the quality is (generally) decreasing.

Love Frieza Planet 419 though, AKA Planet of Spoilers. Like TFS telling us about all the stuff they're NOT getting to!

>> No. 69506
Yeah Jack, that was unjustified and intentionally worded in a fashion to cause problems. Don't be a wanker.
>> No. 69507
Sorry CJack, but I'm gonna have to disagree with you on all the points that make you seriously sound like Debbie Downer. These guys don't just do the parody stuff, they also have a pretty tight group within the voice actors that plays Left 4 Dead 2 and Halo: Reach together (which is also posted on their site, under "Team Four Star: Let's Play" in the Episodes section, and yes, sometimes they do the DBZ voices).

As a 29-y/o gamer, I know that getting together a good team to play campaigns with is really hard to let go. Also, just because you grow up doesn't mean you give up shit you love to do; it just means that instead of it being the only thing you do, it becomes a hobby that takes up your time when you're not working or otherwise having a life.

I don't mind waiting for the new episodes (though I would like to point out that the wait time between Lord Slug and Ep 26 was only a month); they're fun to watch when they do come out, and the "TFS: Let's Play" segments can be pretty hilarious all on their own. TFS is comprised of a bunch of guys who have fun doing things that are otherwise ridiculous, both for their own amusement and the amusement of others, and that's why I keep watching.
>> No. 69508
It's just in the math, guys.

They've adapted about 84 episodes of DBZ into 26 parody episodes. That's roughly a 3.4 actual-episode-to-parody-episode ratio. So in order to adapt the entire 291-epsiode series, they will need 86 total (not even counting GT). They're not even one-third the way there (and they've shown no desire to skip fillers [partially because they're hilarious] so I don't think they would) so far, which has taken them three and a half years.

So you really think they're going to do this for another eight years? Saying nothing of the fact that there's still nine more movies and one special (which are double-length as the episodes) as well, which brings the total "episode" number to over 100. That's a decade more to go at least, assuming they DON'T slow down.

I'm not trying to be an ass, I'm just being realistic.
>> No. 69509
Yeah, he hasn't said anything that wild. I'd say the frieza saga has three more episodes left in it, and then we'll see.
>> No. 69515

Yeah see, phrased like that? Much more sensible. The way you phrased it was that you were essentially saying that everything they're doing now is something that they'll do until they "grow up," that they're getting worse, and all but going "Hah! They're on the verge of falling apart! That's hilarious!"

You weren't trying to be an ass but you ended up coming off as one.
>> No. 69516
See, this is a much better argument than what you stated before. I can see the sense in this, but to just out and out say that after Frieza it's over is what I objected to, as well as your previous statement about them just up and disbanding.

I'm willing to bet TFS will keep going with the DBZ parodies for as long as it remains fun for them. For as long as it stays online, I'll watch it and enjoy the work these guys do basically for their own shits and giggles.
>> No. 69540
Look how long LK's been doing Yu-Gi-Oh. And he's just one guy. It's not like they've been showing any sort of ill-will against each other or WANTING to stop. The thing is, early on the episodes were of lower quality and therefore easier/faster to produce. Now that they're getting aces at editing, it's taking longer.
