Re: What's the Best Part of Dr. Slump

There is some censorship which Viz mentions in the beginning of their volumes, with references to underage smoking and drinking. So Taro doesn't have cigs lit, and Akane is mentioned drinking "Super Punch". Another thing is Arale has her body destroyed and her head is on Obatchaman's, ...

Re: FUNimation really butchered the pronunciation of Tapion's name

Name pronunciation differences are a mark that separates their early dubs from their latter ones. For example, in YYH and Shuffle, here are characters named Itsuki. YYH's dub pronounces his name "It-Soo-Kee", while Shuffle's dub has their guy's name pronounced "It-Skee". Similar ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Looks like Funimation's started announcing cast members for the upcoming arc on Twitter. We've got Greg Dulcie as Sidra, Derick Snow as Ro, Jeff Plunk as Basil, Chris Guerrero as Lavender and Marcus Stimac as Bergamo. Looks like the goal is to have Universe team cards showing the cast for all the t...

Re: Why didn't Roshi train to prepare for the Saiyans?

Because at that time Toriyama was not on his favor in making him stronger or relevant. In-universe this could be what motivated him into secretly training and the reason he didn't join was because he was easily outclassed by the seemingly stronger enemies or couldn't do it because he was either far...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

The opening is trash. Why do they keep dubbing the songs? All of the dubbed songs sound awful. Why can't they just leave them be? They don't do this with any other series . Oh really now . Never watched "Show By Rock" I take it either? Also when characters sing, it's odd if they suddenly ...

Re: Times characters forgot about their powers

Non-canon, but the Path to Power movie they're getting on Oolong's case about not turning into a key including Puar who didn't even attempt to, even though he actually graduated shapeshifting school. He just yells at Oolong that he sucks. (In the dub, the Japanese, he just chastised as he didn't tur...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

The opening was fine to me. I’m still not sure why FUNimation even bothered doing a cover, though. Don’t most other anime dubs just stick with the original Japanese openings and endings? Yes, but for me, I miss dub openings. One reason is I often like to sing to the theme song when it's playing at ...

Re: FUNimation really butchered the pronunciation of Tapion's name

I was watching Movie 13 on Blu-ray (looks really good actually, imo) but since the Japanese audio has terrible audio quality, I decided to switch to the English dub. Now, for the most part FUNimation's dub is fine but it really annoyed me how badly they'd say Tapion's name. Instead of saying "...

Re: WJ 2018 No. 33: Akira Toriyama x Takehiko Inoue Interview

While I still need to look at all of the interview, I did notice that in the pictures they had, Mr. Toriyama's face was cut off or had him hiding, while we see Slam Dunk's creator's face full on. Guess he didn't want to be photographed.

15 Years Since Z's North American End

Was thinking recently, while know it's a little late since the last dvd came out in March 2003, but noticed it has been 15 years since DBZ's North American run had ended. Yeah, the Ultimate Uncut had still to come out, and the movies at the time would be another three years before they were all rele...

Re: Old DVD/VHS ads odd in Choice of Sister Series advertised vs today

I would also say that YYH gives a similar feel. And haven't seen Blue Gender, but heard it's really violent and had some sex scenes so when AS aired it in 2003, (this was back when they wouldn't go over TV14, and the HandBanana ep of Aqua Teens wouldn't fly) had to make cuts to it.

To you guys who are upset about it being not subbed, do y'all not go to movies that much? While there are exceptions like "Pan's " and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", usually foreign language features don't play at big theaters and usually at art-house theaters or independent s...

Was thinking recently you know how the old DBZ dvds and vhs tapes of the early 2000s used to advertise Blue Gender and Yu Yu Hakusho as they were at the time Funimation's only other properties at first. Would you guys say compared to today with the more recent DB releases the former probably wouldn'...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Movies and Specials

So do you think that they should re-do those Disney and WB examples I listed above on that same logic? Also from what I mentioned with other examples with why some guys weren't recast was due to legacy. Similar to how whenever Mr. Conroy replays Batman, or with the Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10 movies...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Movies and Specials

On one hand, I'd say all of them should be redubbed. Even the "Good ones" still had layers of Funimation's usual "Adaptations" on top of them, making them highly inaccurate and unfaithful scripts, and in many of them, the acting wasn't that good. But, I get the feeling that a lo...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Dragon Ball (OG)

With a similar note, thought I'd ask guys who were thinking there should be a redub, should they redub this scene from "Transformers"so that Soundwave's voice is consistent in future releases, or should they leave as it is? His actor is still alive.

The Bardock and Trunks specials have possibly the worst English dubs that Funimation has ever produced. Seriously ? worse than late Freeza and Cell arcs ? You guys haven't seen "Master of Martial Hearts" have you? Grant that's more to it being a terrible show with an accurate dub, but sti...
