Apparently he did smoke for a while or so I've heard. Might work for a character like Sanji from One Piece but not for Trunks.

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

I honestly wouldn't say Schemmel is better than current Nozawa. Sure, he has improved, but Nozawa is still Nozawa. Same goes for Horikawa. I do agree that Vale isn't better than Kusao, but then again Kusao was always better. Nowadays, I wish they could have replaced him with Aaron Dismuke. That rasp...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

One change that really bothered me in the first episode of Super was Goku talking about how he has to keep training to keep his loved ones safe.

Re: What’s the general consensus on James Marsters’ Zamasu?

Like I said many times, I don't really watch the Funi dub of Super, but after watching a clip from episode 66, I can say that he sounds a lot better than before.

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

No one has ever said you’re obligated to respect their acting ability, but you generally don’t refer to someone as a talentless hack, unless you’re looking to start an argument. A dub of low budget cartoons that involve poop jokes and old men sexually harassing underage girls doesn’t require Oscar ...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

think the closest any Dragon Ball actor can come to truly being irreplaceable is Masako Nozawa. Ryūsei Nakao as Freeza is probably a close second, in my opinion. To me, most of the Japanese cast is irreplaceable. I don't doubt that Aya Hisakawa will be a good replacement, but Hiromi Tsuru will alwa...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

It's just a shame that it took them 11 years to make a finally acceptable English dub.

And I'm not sure if I would say that the Funimation cast is irreplaceable. There are actors who could likely play the characters better than them.

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

On one hand, I'm glad the Funimation cast got the chance to improve, but on another hand, it probably wasn't a good idea to give them the rights to the Dragon Ball franchise. I mean, they basically had a bunch of inexperienced actors dubbing one of the most popular anime series in the world. I don't...

I'm not sure why some people are trying to force Kamiccolo and Kunzait to be more positive towards the Funimation cast. They are allowed to not like them.

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

Let's be real though, a lot of what goes into the initial invention of a voice for a character does come from how they look. Yeah, that's true, but that doesn't mean Goku needs to sound deep because of his stature. Goku isn't Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star, who is known for his macho attitude...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

Strait's the best one out of the three you mentioned. He's not bad. I'd give Schemmel and Sabat credit if their delivery hadn't gotten worse since the first Kai dub. If a voice actor that wasn't great to begin with peaked 10 years ago, you don't keep him on; you cut him loose. Gokng to have to disa...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

Well, Witty, the dubs for Samurai Champloo, Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, Black Lagoon, FLCL are considered to be some of the finest. And I don't agree with the Yu Yu Hakusho dub being great. It's far more tolerable than the Z or GT dubs, but it still suffers from problems, making some changes in...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

Once again, I disagree about Schemmel's Kaio. I have to admit that while I'm not really a big fan of the Funimation cast, I think calling them "bargain-basement talentless hacks" is quite harsh. Kinda reminds me of Kunzait saying that it's pathetic that they took 10 years to finally improv...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

You might want to compare his earliest work as King Kai to now. He's definitely inprobed and gotten clearer and slightly more natural as King Kai. It's still not perfect, but it's a huge step from before I've heard his early work and his recent work as King Kai and there's no difference. He has alw...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

^ Even Schemmel has improved his King Kai, more in his delivery than voice though. I think they left him on because his voice had become so iconic with the character (not to mention Schemmel wanted to and could continue as him), but I do agree that a recast of King Kai would have been beneficial. I...
