Re: VA's who come cose or are on-par with the original Seiyu

If Kai is permitted, then Chris Ayres as Freeza would be up there with Nakao.

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I'm confused about one joke in Episode 28. When Freeza stretches after being kicked, Vegeta's spirit animal comes out of his ear. Could someone explain that one to me?

what about "This time you won't come back!" for whenever Freeza was about to kill Krillin?

Re: General Yamamoto Rip off thread

About the Insert Song "News of the Cell Games",

Doesn't part of the opening riff sound like the opening riff to DOOM Soundtrack E1M9?

Re: Dragon Ball Z Kai - Part Eight

I'd like to see "What if TFS wrote the script for Kai?" as being part of the extras. Given the gold that TFS came out with, it would be interesting to see Funi's take on it.

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Re: Shout outs to TFS in Kai

I don't understand -- how are any of those references to TeamFourStar? I can't speak to the Mr. Popo one, but the Nappa one just seems like terrible writing, and properly casting Freeza after 14 years or so isn't a reference to someone else, it's just good dubbing practice (and seemed like it was n...

Shout outs to TFS in Kai

I know that Funimation made references to DBZ Abridged in Kai, such as Goku saying that Mr. Popo is quite scary when he's angry (episode 80 or 81, not sure which), or Nappa raging about the media.

Were there other references to DBZ Abridged in the Kai dub?

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I'd be interested in how they're going to handle Broly. Would Vegeta give his "super saiyan" speeches again, before Broly yells "Bitch, I'm the real Super Saiyan"?

Re: Dragonball being anti-technology?

Yes, Earth has flying cars and capsules, but we never see those being utilised to their full potential (like colonising the moon, or mars for that matter). and the heroes never integrate communications technology (scouters could also be used as a two-way radio IIRC, and could have gone a long way to...

Dragonball being anti-technology?

I noticed that in Dragonball, despite there being hoards of alien tech on Earth, only the bad guys ever use it, and the good guys seem to live hermetic lifestyles (between DB and Z, goku doesn't even so much as call his friends), and humanity doesn't head into space, even though they know it's possi...

Re: Non saiyan fighters should not have gotten the shaft

Given that Yamcha was basically the Aquaman of Dragonball, it was inevitable that he'd get shafted. As for the rest of the non-saiyans, it was an inevitable rule of thumb that anyone weaker than the protagonist would be left to the wayside of the story.

A trailer for a Funimation rifftrack of Dragonball Evolution (I know TFS have done it already, but it would be pretty interesting to hear Funi's take on that movie) How would that have any relevancy on a Dragon Ball Z Kai release? Well, it could go on to a "coming soon" extra, the same wa...

Re: Old Funi dub lines you would like to see with Kai acting

I'd say I wouldn't mind hearing most of the old script for the Buu saga with Kai quality. It would be interesting to see how much the cast had improved since then.

Dub lines that you liked

Ok, we all know that the old dub had a lot of problems, especially with the script. But what lines were there that you genuinely liked? For me, the best has to be Freeza's line about how humanity was a "plebeian race from the dark ages", which really says about how ignorant humanity is of ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I think Burter is trying to prove himself after being beaten soundly by S. Kaioshin when he volunteered himself for stealing the dragonballs. I wish Freeza had pointed out how fragile he was.

Re: Ideal Voice Recasts?

I dislike it when people say a man should play Goku, if you wanna be authentic, go for a woman. I personally don't mind whether or not it's a man or a woman playing Gokuu, as long as they manage to capture the fundamentals of his character. I don't understand how Gokuu being played by a woman is &q...
