Re: Why isn't Dragon Ball acknowledged more for its social commentary?

While I largely agree that Toriyama isn't really the type of author to consciously put deeper, socially relevant themes in his work, I wouldn't say that DB is completely devoid of it. In particular, there's a bit of class commentary during the Freeza arc. Toriyama said in this interview that Freeza ...

I already posted this in one of the Toonami Africa topics and it's not really relevant to the current Goku Black stuff, but, um, I kinda stumbled upon the Toonami Africa version of Episode 1. They apparently premiered it as a part of a livestream on their Facebook page! You have to skip past an hour...

Re: Turner expands Toonami to Africa!

So, um, I kinda stumbled upon the Toonami Africa version of Episode 1 of Super. They apparently premiered it as a part of a livestream on their Facebook page! You have to skip past an hour or so of weird voting game stuff, but towards the end the episode is definitely there. It's weird that none of ...

Re: DBZ Kai The Final Chapters: Disco is Dead Edition

Hey, everyone! I noticed that Episode 148 had its audio cut out in the middle of the credits (both the corrected audio and Disco is Dead), so I uploaded corrected v2 versions to their respective MEGA Folders. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

Re: If there is a new series, what title would you suggest?

Dragon Ball V, with the V being pronounced like the letter, but the pun being on the Roman numeral. I borrowed the name idea from Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V, though I don't know how they pronounce it there. But yeah, it would technically be the fifth series storywise. This is counting Z and Kai because they te...

Re: Why does Funimation refuse to acknowledge the term "Ki"?

never using the "Son" in Goku's name (though they made that one exception in the "I am" speech). Found this today: when selecting Goku in FighterZ, one of his quotes is the last part of the I Am speech, with the full name! I was talking about the anime, but I didn't really make ...

Re: Why does Funimation refuse to acknowledge the term "Ki"?

Couldn't they have gone with 'chi' instead. It means the same thing, doesn't it? I've seen this word left untranslated many times in old movies and cartoons, so it's not like the viewer wouldn't have understood what they were talking about. If I'm not mistaken, "ki" is the Japanese pronun...

Re: Predicting Funimation's Super Voices

Re: Why alternate openings for The Final Chapters?

Nothing was "wrong" with it, per se. It's just that Fight It Out and Never Give Up were the songs originally produced for Kai's Boo arc when it was initially an international-only thing. When Toriko failed and they decided to throw the rest of Kai on TV, they were probably thinking, "...

Re: Predicting Funimation's Super Voices

We have a surprise future replacement, Chris Ayres Frieza is being voiced by someone else in Fighterz. It isn't a surprise since poor Chris is in really bad health but who is it that is voicing him any idea? It's presumably Daman Mills. He was Ayres' understudy for some Freeza lines towards the end...

Well Travis just tecently stopped his role for Ace last year so i dontthink it is impossible but, you are probably correct. It wil be exciting to hear the Future Trunks Arc Yeah, but that's a special case because he's reprising a role that he played before for a big series. Either way, I still don'...

Re: Predicting Funimation's Super Voices

Anyone think they may recast Zamasu? Would you want them to or do you think with better direction Marsters will work? Personally for me if they were going to recast Travis Willingham would be a good choice i think. I don't think they will. James Marsters is a decently notable guy in broader nerd cu...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters" FUNimation English Dub Official Announcement and Discussion Thread

Did we ever fully confirm who voiced Kid Trunks? Some episodes credit Laura Bailey while others credit Alexis Tipton. I'm pretty sure we determined that Bailey played un-Fused Trunks throughout the arc while Tipton played the Trunks half of Gotenks. I may be misremembering, but I don't remember hea...

The week after, actually.


Unless they're taking another break, it is next week. There's a stinger for the next arc at the end of episode 46 where you see Trunks running away from something, which is what he meant about hearing Eric Vale grunt.

I do have to say, as someone who doesn't really care for the Faulconer score I appreciate you doing this project. While I'd prefer to introduce newcomers to Kai with the Kikuchi or Yamamoto scores since they better convey the wuxia/martial arts fantasy feel of DB (even if Kikuchi Kai has problems), ...

Re: US Versions of the Super-songs?

He did, in fact, rerecord it for the English dub, but it ultimately went unused. I imagine it was licensing issues with the Engrish version that prevented his version from being used, so maybe these uploaders inserted his version into the dub because they felt he got cheated by circumstance.

Curious thing about that plot hole regarding Goku's spaceship, I seem to recall the Portuguese dub actually had Dr Brief say that it was in pieces, but that he'd been able to salvage enough of it to build the version he took to Namek. That was actually in the Japanese version as well, believe it or...
