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

Maybe some of you guys know, but I am sure I read somewhere on here that Doc Harris wasn't returning as narrator? I have a vague recollection of that and it's bumming me out, so I HOPE I'm wrong! :lol: Okay, I suppose I might aswell recap this kind of thing for everyone so people don't have to make...

Re: WIth Pokemon Live Action a thing, maybe a serious Live Action DB Series could work...

DB is better off not having any live-action stuff. The settings and the characters would look really out of place.

And don't think that just because a filmmaker is passionate about the franchise, he'd do a good job at handling DB.

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

Agreed completely. And, as someone else recently posted, it's always been a particular sore spot that Ocean never got to dub the rest of the Freeza arc (with major events like Vegeta's death on Namek and Goku's first Super Saiyan transformation), especially after they had already done all the "...

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: Question for those who read the Manga

Even though I like Chuck Huber's performance for what it is, I hear Greg Ayres as Pilaf and honestly, his voice coming out of Pilaf works a lot better than Huber IMO. Other voices I hear: Babidi sounds like Gilbert Gottfried, Cell is Corey Burton and Kibito sounds like David Ogden Stiers. Which voi...

Re: Question for those who read the Manga

Oddly enough, I hear Piccolo sounding more like this actor than Scott McNeil.

Vegeta is Drummond sounding more like a mix of his Zechs Marquise and Hayato Shingu.

Re: DB's Revival

I'm mixed on it, like most here. Dragon Ball Kai might be faster-paced than Z, but the Japanese cast isn't performing to the best of its abilities, Norio Wakamoto coming to mind. Sabat said in an interview that they needed Kai more than the Japanese and that's true. To me, Kai is only really worth w...

He doesn't care for Kai and he did say that he still prefers their performances over the English cast.

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

More authentic and real sounding than casting an adult male to do a young boy voice? Yes It really depends. There are some men who have more high pitched and childlike voices than others. As for anime schedules not having time for child actors, I can sort of understand that, but considering that Ed...

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

Stop bringing in TFS to the conversation - it's a parody show. There's no acting required. Even if it did, MasakoX does not capture Goku's spirit. He's not required to because he's not voicing Goku. It's a parody Goku. Do you think Power Rangers has good acting? Because that's about the level of ac...

TFS Frieza only works for a parody. I can't imagine him deliver the most threatening moments of Frieza like Ayres does.

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

I hate this argument. For one dismissing Masako Nozawa’s Goku as “an old lady” doing the voice makes it sound like Goku literally sounds like someone’s grandma. He doesn’t. Not even in Super. It sounds like a very childish BOY voice. Like Goku never really grew up and is still naive and pure hearte...

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

Goku might be a big guy but that doesn't mean he needs to sound deep and manly. I like Schemmel, but Nozawa does an incredible job voicing Goku. Goku's a childish guy and her voice and performance fits Goku perfectly. And besides, Toriyama wrote and drew the manga with her voice in mind. A deep and ...

I'm not bitter at all over your opinion on Beast Wars, lol. I just think you're exaggerating on the performances of that show being over the top. Yes, they were over-the-top, but they weren't over-the-top all the time. I'm pretty sure Scott McNeil wasn't hamming it up in Dinobot's death scene. Yes, ...

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

Honestly, I'm glad Funi got the rights. Without them we probably wouldn't have gotten this huge number of different English dubs, including the Westwood/Blue Water/Big Green dubs which were created as a reaction against them. Good that you think that way because in my honest opinion, I'd rather not...
