    So disappointed with Viz right now. They had a pretty big ad campaign for their new 3-in-1 Dragon Ball release, but it's... so not worth it.

    For starters, it uses the covers of the premium Kanzenban ("Perfect Edition") releases from Japan, which featured high-quality paper and printing... but is printed on that awful newspaper-level crap the One Piece, Naruto, and Fullmetal Alchemist 3-in-1s are printed on.

    Then the big thing: it's advertised as uncensored and "remastered"... but it features the same inconsistent translation (including Piccolo's wonky-ass speech pattern from the Saiyan saga translations) AND has already been shown to have edited out and edited down Bulma's breasts and the middle finger she gives Emperor Pilaf and co. in volume 2 of the tankobon releases.

    Guys, it's not about seeing Bulma's boobs (or Goku's wang, which generally isn't edited out). Viz specifically advertised this product as being uncensored, and it's not. Why is it that FUNimation, who treated the DBZ license so badly Viz literally lampshaded one of FUNimation's changed lines, now releases products like Dragon Ball Z Kai, which features one of the best official English translations of anything Dragon Ball ever... yet Viz is still editing things like names (Mr. Satan -> Hercule; Green -> Blue and vice-versa), art (Bulma's breasts - and even merely her cleavage; Blue's Poké Ball bra trick against Sabrina) and using that same shady translation?

    The world may never know.

    I have not watched Dragon Ball for years... I had no idea that it had any nudity in the original version! Makes you wonder what secretly may have gotten cut from the Pokemon anime :P

    Can anyone here/does anyone know someone who could draw a people/fictional character based only on a description, and could do it for free as well? If so please PM me as soon as possible!

    Little Goku's... Little Goku was plastered all over the first half of the series. :P

    It was always done as part of a gag, though. You know, Goku being totally ignorant of social norms (ie: you don't go walking around butt naked in public), or Master Roshi is a pervert and always tries to get a glimpse of Bulma's boobs... etc.

    Well, except for whenever Goku or Gohan revert from Ozaru form. Then they're just naked because their clothes don't stretch.

    Of course, DBZ Kai edited out all the nudity present in the animation that was remastered. 1980s Japan was just a different culture.

    Kelleo and NG are both beastly artists, but I don't know if they'd have time/inspiration for requests. I'd ask people in the Art Gallery. I seem to recall Flaze having some art of his characters done a while back, but that might've just been from a friend.

    Unfortunately I can't draw worth a damn, although I got really really good at drawing Psyduck a few years back. Don't ask why.

    And I don't suppose you'd want a musical theme for said character...

    I'm afraid that I always have so many ideas of my own to draw and so many other things to do that I don't take art requests, at least not very often. xP

    I find I don't work as well with only descriptions either. >_<

    Oh, and I really like DBZ Kai's English voice acting too! Literally EVERYONE has an awesome voice. I've never been that big a fan of DBZ, but I think Krillin is awesome. lol

    Like I said, it was a long time ago - early 2000's long time :P I was never as active of a watcher as I was with Pokemon, Digimon and YuGiOh.

    And that is alright Kelleo/Aether. I thought I would try asking around here first rather than go trawling through the art galleries and hope I find a willing person :P

    I don't think you should count on me with drawing, AceTrainer14 XD, even if I have finished coloring what I showed you guys earlier through paint. You should see the result at my avatar area <--

    EDIT: OK, if you're an oldschool Namco fan, you should have a look at this site: Link. It's a website with old Namco games as webcomic and toons made by ShiftyLook, a subsidiary company of Namco Bandai.

    I'd love for my fic to win so both Zelda: The Ancient Power and FE: Dawn of Darkness share the same award. :3

    But if Kyuu's ends up being the victor instead, well, I shall congratulate him for managing to surpass my FE fic of all stories with just one chapter. And there would always be next time! I only hope this would mean that Kyuu's story is just THAT good to the judges instead of my bunch of chapters being THAT bad compared to it. xP

    @Kelleo: I know all the winners off by heart, but I cannot reveal who or what has won! I am very excited as I am a big fan of the Awards and always have been, and I feel that we have now reached a level of perfection in terms of balancing both scoring and personal critiques that I believe have ensured the best quality results compared to previous awards. And all stories are judged simply by quality, not quantity.

    @Flaze: It is not my fault that the judges insisted on awarding A Wish on Freedom and Kris vs Gold, despite not being updated in years! :P

    Oh, of course, I never said they should be judged by quantity. But the number of chapters DOES provide a hint as to how much the plot and characters might have developed. Keyword: might. And that is important, no?

    Those things are important, yes, but I am merely saying that you should not really say things like this, as this is about the third time you have brought this point up and it just seems like you are implying that having more chapters should make you the winner.
