Re: Was the BLT dub any good?

Yeah, that was the thing with the newer Funimation dub of the early eps was that they were lazy and just used the same old scripts. That was annoying. On topic, the old dub was ok, but like many anime dubs of that time it may or may not have aged as well, so would be better if you turn your anime se...

Re: Was the BLT dub any good?

It has its moments. Like many older anime dubs it may not have aged as well by today's standards but it's ok. And interestingly enough, censorship wise, it got away with some stuff that the first two seasons of DBZ didn't. They don't shy away from death, so no "Next dimension" and Pilaf an...

Anime influence manga reading and elsewhere?

Probably this has been asked before, but does the anime influence any of you guys' reading the manga when it comes to voices? Basically when one is reading the DB manga in English for example, do you hear the Funimation dub actors or other English dub actors when reading it, or do you hear the Japan...

Re: Boobs

I think the time period DB ran during also helps out as it was before the age of teen anime girls being E cup or bigger. Bulma being 34-C is more realistic sort ofcompared to lots of anime heroines these days who are a lot bigger.

Re: How come Dr. Slump the Anime Series wasn't successful anywhere than Japan?

That could depend on their age. Recall during DBZ's original US broadcast, majority of the US fandom were kids, and might not have paid attention to certain big things at the time. I was 17 at the time and saw things about it and did watch it. As for the mention on how some guys' parents wouldn't le...

He might not be into older stuff. Weird as it sounds to me, hear there are guys out there who have never seen Raiders of the Lost Ark . As for the Dr. Slump anime, older anime series tend to not sell very well in the States unfortunately. There are exceptions like Lion Voltron and Robotech, but that...

Yandere Villainesses Possible?

Admit haven't watched much of Super and thus am not sure if they've done this by now, but was wondering would Yandere villainesses work with the franchise? For those who aren't familiar with the term, someone who has a crazy infatuation and will become obsessed and possibly murderous in their pursui...

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

And in this case, Ki to energy. (which I'm not too sure if "Ki" is an actual Japanese world that means energy or a word invented by Toriyama that means energy) Ki is simply the Japanese pronunciation of the Chinese word "Chi" or "Qi" (same as "Shenron" is for...

Re: Is Sean Schemmel possibly tired of voicing Goku?

At this point I don't even know why a dub still exists. Did Kai or Super have to be dubbed? We're now in the age of online streaming media with subs and everyone knows Dragonball is an anime. It's not like the 90's or early 2000's when it had to air on TV dubbed. Honestly the dubs should have stopp...

Hopefully he leaves the job for someone who's more capable of portraying the character. Why do you care about things in English given your location? But yeah, some guys do get on him like how some elitist nerds nitpick on little things. Recall some guys long time back saying they refused to watch t...

Kinda inspired by the who would you voice thread, thought I'd ask who from DB would you guys cosplay, or who you wouldn't cosplay. Myself, I've already done Mr. Satan, though haven't decided if I would do anyone else. As for who I wouldn't cosplay, Black Goku. I have a feeling folks would make bad j...

I can see Vegeta teaching Bulma, Nami, Winry, Yusuke, Chopper, Kyoya-senpai, Connie, Misaka, and others in how to be heroes. Along with Young Midoriya who is his protege.

Re: Did the Pioneer staff just redraw Goku and Vegeta for one of their DVD releases?

I always loved the box art for the Pioneer releases. I can't imagine it would've been that expensive for FUNi to invest some resources into something like that. Instead, we got awful screenshots. Or even worse... screenshot collages! https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51ARQQD5X0L.jpg ...

As for Latin America, I think they mainly focus on a North American audience.
