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

Don Brown played Kibito in the Westwood dub. While I know that people think he's too gruff for the role, he can easily do a voice that's not gruff. And Yamu was played by Brian Drummond. A friend of mine suggested Brian Dobson for Android 16. http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/tv-shows/Krypto-the-S...

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

Yeah, I mean, it seems hard to imagine that they would be commissioned to continue dubbing another 69 episode continuation series for just Canadian TV alone. In the past it was more reasonable as they were making money from the UK and Netherlands too (and possibly some other places in Northern Euro...

Re: Are the Japanese voices of Dragon Ball too much recycled and full of Miscast?

I honestly don't mind Nozawa, Minaguchi, Tsuru and Kusao voicing all of those characters. Makes sense, since they're related.

Daisuke Gori was recycled a lot in Dragon Ball, and when it came to vocal range, he was quite limited.

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

Yeah. I'm not a big fan of Sabat's Vegeta, but I do appreciate what he's doing, and in Kai in particular, he's really come into his own, and truly found his Vegeta voice. That said, again, I'm not a huge fan of that approach to the voice, and Funimation's dubs in general just sound wrong to me anyw...

It's too late, at this point most already prefer Z Dub except fans like us who care because "DBZ is one of the Best dubbed anime".

Yep, I knew that.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Dragon Ball is capable of being translated to live action, most fans are to biased because they're so used to watching the anime a million times. I don't think I'm biased. Given that Dragon Ball Evolution was fucking trash, I don't see how a second attempt would be successful . What makes you think...

Huh? Dragon Ball Minus never stated Bardock was a brilliant scientist though. joking... of course.

Yeah, I know that.

What I meant by Bardock being like Jor-El in Minus was that much like Jor-El, he sent Goku to Earth.

A story that was completely unnecessary. Toriyama didn't need to make Bardock into Jor-El.

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

If Ocean ever dubs the Final Chapters which is unlikely to happen, then I would like if Scott emulated Kozo Shioya's Majin Buu. Hold up. You think that if the Saiyan-Cell Sagas air, they wouldn't commission more episodes? Anyway, to respond to your statement, I actually liked Scott's voice for Buu,...

Re: Comic Fans: How does Dragon Ball compare to your favorite American comics?

Considering that the point of this thread is to compare western comics to Dragonball, is it really fair to criticize the Avengers for 'save the world' plots involving punching robots and alien invaders to when that's pretty much what DBZ boils down to as well? Replace a few words in your rant and y...

Re: Comic Fans: How does Dragon Ball compare to your favorite American comics?

That's why the DCAU guys rarely used Bane or Doomsday. They saw them as just gimmicks to take their big guys out. It's a shame that Bane is lumped in with Doomsday. The latter is a mindless monster, the former is quite intelligent. My familiarity with comics is relegated to those I read in the 90s ...

Yamcha's voice actor is Toru Furuya, not Toshio Furukawa. Furukawa voices Piccolo.

I'm quite excited by all of this and have been revisiting clips from older dubs etc. on YouTube to try and get a sense of how the show may sound.

He'll also need to be replaced by another actor for his character in Black Lagoon.
