Contest Time- Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball, Gotta Get That Dragon Ball
By Marc | August 31st, 2009

Time for another contest.
Only one prize I’m admitting to at the moment, but there’s a few more.
The prize is…
Dragonball Boxart
Season 1 of Dragon Ball on DVD.
This time around, the way to enter is…

Tell me your favorite ‘thing’ from Dragon Ball, DBZ, or DBGT…  and by thing, I mean anything.  Story, character, toy, game, a piece of art…  anything you can think of.

(It’ll help your entry out if you explain your choice.)
My favorite answer will get their choice of the announced prize, or a few other prizes.  First place gets their choice, then second place, and we keep going until no more prizes are left, same as last time.
Please send contest entries to contests@fanboyreview.net. Please only enter once. In your email include your answer and your name and address.  Contest ends at 11:59pm (Pacific) on September 15th, 2009 (that’s a Tuesday).

Stitch! Cast Update
By Marc | August 30th, 2009

I’ve been able to confirm information about one cast member for the dub of the Stitch! anime.
Pleakly, played by Kevin McDonald in prior Stitch media, has been recast, as I’ve been able to confirm known LA area ADR actors used in Studiopolis anime Dubs have tried out for the role.
With Pleakly being replaced, it seems likely that Jumba Jookiba will also be recast (he was played by David Ogden Stiers in other material.)
No news about Stitch himself. If I get further information I’ll let everyone know.

Dragon Ball Season 1, Early Look/Review
By Marc | August 29th, 2009

Wow, it’s been a long trek to get this on DVD.  It’s kinda ironic that the last bit of all the original Dragon Ball/Z/GT related animations we finally get uncut are the first few episodes of the series (not including the 2008 special or Kai in that, purely all the originally released stuff.)
This is where the king of shonen anime started over twenty years ago.  How does it stand up to it’s bigger brother Dragon Ball Z?  Let’s take a look. Continue reading

Chuck Season 1 and 2 Review
By Rachel Oliver | August 8th, 2009

Despite its very loud and supportive fanbase, Chuck is a series that managed to fly under my radar until very recently. I had assumed it was some kind of new sitcom, and while I do like sitcoms, I’ve seen more than my fair share of them, so what could the networks possibly offer of interest nowadays?
The answer: …Well, Chuck’s not really a sitcom, but it does have elements of it that have been thrown in a blender with action, drama, a little bit of sci-fi seasoning, and an eccentric cast of characters. (For those interested, the first episode of Chuck is embedded at the bottom of the article.) Continue reading
