Q: All right, now I am going to start this one off a little differently. Now I love your layout. It's simple, but amazing looking. What do you think your layout adds to your site or to any site. Also, about how many layouts did you go through before you decided on this one?
A: Well, I think my layout is straightforward, I designed
it with the intent to expand the site to meet demands, and so far things are working out
Q: Now let's move onto FUNimation. What did you think of Season 3?
A: Hmm.. well, I like that they added in more blood, and there are less edits, but I'm not
a huge fan of the voices, some are acceptable.. others are downright annoying. The
episodes have started to get better, and with luck perhaps season 4 will be of acceptable
quality. I also think the extra lines they add in are heinous, they really detract from
Q: Do you see any hope for FUNi?
A: Yes, I remember watching the first tape, and saying how poorly implemented everything
was, but as the episodes go by they get progressively better, so there is still hope for
Q: Where do you think FUNimation went wrong with Season 3?
A: Well, first off the voices, that was one of the driving forces behind seasons 1 and 2,
and although those seasons were heavily edited, I really felt the voices worked. Secondly,
the music, they have music for every episode in Japanese, I don't see they they can't use
Q: If you could have either the original voices. music, or dialogue put into the dub,
which one would you choose?
A: Again, I'm going with voices, although the music and dialogue are important, having
high quality voice actors makes the whole production seem professional.
Q: Have you had any problems with page pirates in the past? What do you think of page
A: Heh, well not yet, I've only been up for less than two months, but I'm sure I'll have
to deal with them soon enough. I find it funny how I can work 4 hours to get one picture
to just look right, and some lamer walks along saves the picture and now he's got a new
logo in under 5 minutes. However, that is what you deal with when you post things on the
internet, its private property, but in a public domain, its like leaving a sign you worked
4 hours on in the middle of central park.
Q: On your site what is your favorite section to work on?
A: Well, this will sound cheezy, but all sections really.. I enjoy my site as a whole,
since previously I've only worked on sites where it was a passing interest or a hobby.
However, if I had a favorite section.. I guess I would go with the character bios, or my
forum.. I love the bios, because I get to spend hours working with Japanese speaking
friends, and searching for info on the characters. I also like the forum, because I'm a
computer geek at heart, and I can tweak the board to death.. ^_^
Q: Now I see that you have been linked by Planet Namek. What has that done for your
A: Well, it wasn't as much a boost as I would have liked.. but I did double my hits, What
it really means to me is that my site has gone beyond the norm and acheived a (albeit
small) certain level of recognition among the fans.
Q: Have you created any site's in the past and if so what were they about?
A: Hehehe.. yes.. I still maintain it sometimes.. Its called RumbleSoft (http://www.gankish.net/rumblesoft), its a
site dedicated to programming in Visual Basic, as I said before I'm a computer geek at
heart. The only problem with RumbleSoft, is there isn't as much a community behind it as
there is for Dragonball, I've received maybe 100 e-mails in the year its been up, but I
gotten twice that in the short time I've been doing Big Bang Attack! I made some sites
before RumbleSoft, but those never really gained recognition, and weren't very good.. ^_^
Q: What is your favorite series DB, DBZ, or DBGT?
A: DBZ, since my site is dedicated to it, I like old skool DB, but DBZ is by far my
Q: Who is your favorite character from DB and why?
A: Picollo, he's may not be the toughest, but he knows what he wants and he takes it. I
find a lot of times the other characters don't seem to know what to do, or are unsure of
how to handle a situation, but not Picollo, he's always ready to fight, and willing to
fight to the death if its something he believes in.
Q: If you could have one movie from any of the series dubbed, what movie would you pick?
A: Hmm, I'm going with any of the Brolly movies.. actually, anything where Picollo is in
it, and doesn't just have cameo appearances..
Q: If you could decided who fought who in the series, what fight would you like to see the
A: Picollo vs Gohan.. I mean I guess he does fight him in jest, but I would love to see an
all out battle to the death.. I'm not sure if they have one, since I haven't seen the
entire series yet. ^_^
Q: What is your favorite Japanese DB song?
A: Ummm.. not sure, I'm gonna have to call a forfeit, cause I don't usually watch DBZ for
the music, thats mostly just there to get you pumped up while watching the fights.
Q: What series in your opinion has the best music?
A: Hmm, well I can't decide since I haven't seen every episode or movie yet, but I'm
sticking with DBZ, since its my favorite series.
Q: What are your thoughts on GT? Do you think that it should have ever been made?
A: Whats Dragonball GT? Never heard of it.. they made a series after Dragonball Z? ^_^ I
think GT was there mostly due to demand, it had no real driving force, it seemed like an
Q: Umm.....Well, I guess that is about it. Anything you would like to add?
A: Well, as required by law I must shamelessly plug my site, so goto Big Bang Attack, and check out my site.
andy- Well, it has been fun and I am glad you could do the interview.
Korey Marciniak- That was fun, later!
