Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Now, nobody seem to mention that they would recast, Future Trunks, and Fat Buu, whereas I certainly would! But I don't know who would play them. I mean, my ideal voice for Trunks would be Yuri Lowenthal, but he doesn't work at Funimation. And he really doesn't do a lot of anime roles anymore, besid...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

You know, I actually think Chuck Huber would be a pretty good Yamcha. Because he actually has a similar voice pitch to Tōru Furuya. But, explain your reasons why you'd cast Chris Patton. I don't how to explain, but somehow I think he would just fit. Would you say, Chuck Huber, is the second best op...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

And whom would play them? Kaio: Doc Morgan Recoome: Patrick Seitz Yamcha: Chris Patton Need time to think of people who could play Ox-King and Android 16.

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

If you were in charge of Funimation what characters would you have recasted in Dragon Ball Z Kai, and onwards? And who would voice them, and why? I'd recast Kaio, Ox-King, Android 16, Recoome and Yamcha . I'd keep Sabat as Jeice. Liebrecht is a good VA, but he just sounds like Rob Paulsen. And whom...

Re: How do you define a good dub?

Kai is the point where I would consider the dub "good", as long as dialogue gets the intended meaning of the story and characters across with at least decent acting and the original music then it's a good dub in my book. I would consider having amazing acting and actors that replicate the...

Re: What was your first experience with the Japanese version and what was your first impression?

All I can say is that when I first saw Dragon Ball Z in Japanese for the first time, I wasn't bothered at all by Goku's voice.

Oh man, I am so happy about this. I never thought I'd hear these voices in Dragon Ball again. So happy to be on the way to being proven wrong. :D Anyone who hasn't yet; like the tweet. No harm in adding more likes, and remember, 23 likes already stands out, so think about if we could get it up to 5...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

During my re-watch of Kai, I've noticed that Chris Ayres' Frieza sounds just like Richard Steven Horvitz's Orthopox from Destroy All Humans (http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/characters/Destroy-All-Humans/Orthopox/). It makes me wonder if Ayres took inspiration from that voice. Hopefully, when he...

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

I'm bolding this because it's not unimportant: - This morning they appointed Marni Shulman as the head of the channel. She previously worked for Shomi, a now defunct Canada-only streaming service that wasn't exactly a top choice for anime fans. She was asked about Kai on Twitter, and said she'd loo...

Re: What'd a proper English cast of Dragon Ball sound like?

Even though Toronto dubs aren't very good (probably because of the voice director), I could see Cal Dodd as Piccolo (A deeper version of his Wolverine voice), Len Carlson as Frieza, James Blendick as Cell and John Stocker as Majin Buu. Some other performances are tricky. Can't think of anyone in the...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'd say Drummond can be over the top. Really? I always thought those terms meant the same thing. I think there's a clear distinction. Overacting is overdoing things. Over the top simply means big, flashy, flamboyant. Sometimes moments call for the latter. Maybe I didn't pick the right words, but I ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Daniel Day-Lewis has a tendency to ham it up at times but he is a fine actor outside of that; I've never seen Jason David Frank show any real acting range at all. Although to be fair Power Rangers isn't really a show that requires acting range. Honestly overacting isn't a bad thing. It can be done ...

Re: Things that grind your gears

If For Naruto they can do it then why not Armin. Agreed, he has got such a unique and Sinister voice for Picoolo. If anything then it's Sabat's Voice which literally sounds like his normal speaking voice. Yeah, I agree. Don't understand why people say that Sabat sounds closer to Furukawa's take. If...

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

It's understandable why you would believe that. Schemmel got 10 years to grow into the role, while the other Ocean Goku actors didn't get enough time.

I just hope that Tockar and whoever they got for Cell can rival Ayres and Clarke.

Because to those people, the Funimation dub is the only dub that matters and any other dub that exists is bad. I think that's a load of bullshit. The Ocean dub MATTERS a lot. A lot of people got into this amazing series because of it. Indeed. And honestly, although they're very vocal, that lot are ...

Due to him being voiced by a woman in Japanese? Well, yeah. Given that Marina Inoue did a great job in Japanese, I don't see why a girl couldn't work for Armin in English. If For Naruto they can do it then why not Armin. When people say that Furukawa sounds like a regular guy as Piccolo. Nothing ab...
