Re: Britain - The Only Country Still Selling New Copies of Kai w/ Yamamoto Score

I wish someone would release seasons 3 and 4 on BD with the Yamamoto score by accident. I doubt that many episodes of post-Freeza arc Kai have been mixed with the Yamamoto score, aside from the Japanese version. The Yamamoto-scored episodes 53-63 of Funimation's dub for example were exclusive to Ni...

Re: Rank the dubs of each series

For me a great dub has to have the right balance of faithfulness (script and music) and acting quality, so some dubs would rank higher than others based on having great acting but bad scripts (case in point the Saban dub) or bad acting but good scripts (such as the Blue Water Dragon Ball dub for th...

Re: Manga UK's cover of "Dragon Ball GT: The Complete Series"

Yeah, it looks very unprofessional. I was thinking it would have the same cover as Funimation's GT Complete Series but in a fat pack. And that close up of SSJ4 Goku looks awful. I have the two season sets they released so I won't be picking this up, and its probably only a matter of time before a Bl...

I'm sorry but LOL :lol: . Funimation and grain are not words that go on the same sentence.

Blu-Ray's durability). The durability of a product depends on its owner and how he takes care of the product, or lack thereof. I've always kept my Blu-rays, DVDs and CDs in pristine condition and they work as new. If you scratch the disc and expect it to work afterwards then that's your own fault, ...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

Yeah, I reckon whenever these get a western release I'll definitely be picking up movies 1-5, but going to wait to see how the rest turn out. Also, I urge anyone who is a fan of the Pioneer trilogy to let Sabat know we want them as additional audio tracks for the Funi release. Still, aside from Z mo...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

It always makes me facepalm that Funimation had the nerve to fire a bunch of veterans to only replace them with a bunch of nobodies because they were cheaper. It clearly shows that Funimation wasn't the best company to handle Dragon Ball. When you hire nobodies to dub over a show that was composed ...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

What is the best way for me to get my hands on these new remasters? Best thing to do is to wait. Toei are putting them out on Blu-Ray soon, and since some of it is being shown in American cinemas, I'd say we're not far at all from Funi doing a release using these masters. So, best thing to do is to...

That was a good podcast. Have to say I was listening to the whole thing waiting for them to bring up Ocean Kai, but when they did I couldn't contain my excitement. It's just fantastic after all these years to hear the staff of a new TV channel refer to this dub by name, moreover that they recognize ...

Re: Funimation Re-dubbing

Sabat stopped doing a Drummond impression which helped his acting considerably. If I recall, Sean said something about not wanting to overwrite his history, hence why he didn't redub his season 3 performance. He wanted to leave it as a record of where he started and how far he's come. I don't know ...

Re: Question for those who read the Manga

Well as I say its a mix for the most part. With Goku, as I mentioned when it comes to delivery its Schemmel for manchild and Nozawa for battle sequences. The actual voice is sort of a middle ground between the two. So it's sort of like an ideal consistency for me.

Music is almost always Kikuchi.

Re: Question for those who read the Manga

This is such a fun exercise when you have watched the series over and over again and are used to different casts. I tend to hear a mixture of the English and Japanese cast depending on my mood or level of curiosity. For example with Goku I hear Schemmel during his goofy moments and during serious mo...

Re: This series has held up so good to me.

Dragon Ball GT, over the last year and all three shows hold up very well. Uhh are you sure? But yeah DB especially holds up really well IMO. I rewatched DB/DBZ and it was fantastic but the latter half of DBZ seemed to drag a bit. Yeah. I think GT is pretty good. It works efficiently as epilogue to ...

Re: This series has held up so good to me.

It may be the collector in me speaking, but I agree with 90sDBZ that Funimation's Season Blu-Rays aren't obsolete until TOEI announces a remaster that later gets licensed for English-speaking territories. Even then, I'll likely keep my Season sets, even if its just for the special features and artwo...

Re: DB's Revival

Dragon Ball is a completed work. It was completed back in 1995 and nothing has changed that. It can't be considered a completed work anymore if they keep going back to it and retconning and adding stuff that's supposed to fit into it. You don't have to count the new content if you don't want to. If...

Re: Canon matters

Ideally it should. The problem, which has caused so much debate in the first place is that in the case of Dragon Ball the writers don't seem to care as much as the fans.

Re: Original Dragon Ball anime to be released on Blu Ray in Spain

Dragon Ball is long overdue a Blu-Ray release, so even for the durability aspect this is fantastic news. Hopefully it will be a new remaster, but it's reassuring if Selecta Vision negotiated with TOEI because it shows they don't want to settle for what could be mediocrity, and we've seen from the ne...

That's fair enough. Honestly though, I'm probably just being inpatient because there hasn't been much in the way of news about the linear channel (which I want to debut before April).

Re: Masako Nozawa Interview - ComicBook.com

Goku's personality is somewhere between Toriyama's and Nozawa's interpretation. He isn't exactly your typical hero in the sense that he has a selfless motivation to save everyone, his primary goal is to fight strong guys and get stronger in the progress. But on the other hand, he also has a human p...

Not sure what to make of this news other than we'll be hearing more about Crave's acquisitions soon. Hopefully a Wow! Anime collection is just around the corner so we can finally all get ready for Kai.
