Comic Adaptation Done Right [April Fool's 2022]
It's no secret that there is no perfect adaptation of the Dragon Ball manga to the screen - you've got stretched out scenes, filler that adds little to the story or to the entertainment value, and some straight up flubs in terms of translating something great to a new medium. On this episode of We Gotta Pod, we talk about the one time an adaptation was done right with zero faults. That's right, we did a commentary track for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World --- Follow us on Twitter at wegottapod (@wegottapod) / Twitter Email us your questions and comments to wegottapod@gmail.com -- Music is "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot - Main Theme (Hip Hop / Trap REMIX)" by Rifti Beats.
