So Hi everyone,I am Roy Sourboy aka Waverace777 ,I have been writing this long message like a FULLY ChARGED FINAL FLASH VS CELL since I'm new here and I have to wait to get my account approved so I have plenty of time to write this off. Also sorry for my bad writing
I feel sorry already . I wrote everything out of order
LUL had to reorganize it but This message is just my way to Thank everyone and share my random thoughts.
YOU'RE GOING TO DESTROY THE WHOLE PLANET FATHER !!!!!!!!!!! YOU'VE GOT TO STOP IT !!!!!
(Krilin is smart, he heard the piano already)
TRUNKS , LETS GO !!!!
FINAL ... FLASh !!!!! HAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (notice that small silence in the piano during the words FINAL FLASH and then' HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!! That right there ,do you feel the power?)
oh shit version
As a long time DBZ lover , I had to end up here eventually talking about OSTs. Even if everyone has their own preferences, Its always a long process. I was a faulconer hater (sort of) back in the days and now I LOVE IT <3 Couldnt breathe without (LUL)
At first, back in 1996 , I first read the manga, then I saw some Jp episodes and movies, and also french% . Then , as soon as we got the first US dub , I noticed the music was not the same and It just felt off. I wanted piccolo to say MAKANKOSAPPO , I didnt like the ocean dub that much and the music didnt help. The worst thing is I never really noticed the change in music (faulconer music)during freeza saga as I was not even into the US dub at all. So when I saw some Cell saga US dub later in the early 2000s, I heard the cell theme and the guitar and I still didnt really like it and thought it was the same guy who did the music in the early sagas . Even for the goku voice, I prefered the japanese voice actress for her delivering of those awesome screams
But then dbz budokai 1 for the ps2 arrived and I had to cope with the US voices. Overall I always loved everything DBZ japanese version be it games or episodes etc... And then youtube and dailymotion came out , all kinds of video being posted, those early DBZ youtube poop era, as THE BALLS ARE INERT by kajetokun and like,I LMAO'ed so much and I slowly started to like the US dub a bit more than in the past. I also watched YUYU hakusho in eng dub during that time(upon discovering another youtube poop from kajetokun), so It was like, my first DUB anime that I prefered more than the original japanese version, and then berserk dub , and deathnote dub, my taste just got me further and further.
Also not to forget about the 'over 9000' wave of videos ,(i like that Brian drummond performance ) It took me a long time to learn about Chris Sabatt. It never got to me that it was not the same guy LUL. when I finally saw both version i thought Brian did his part very well , Chris too but the Vegeta's Wrath , Brian did a better performance, I cant forget about it. I saw people complaining about the lack of silence compared to the Kikuchi Ost , but sincerely I never really noticed until I saw people bringing it up. Sometimes the music is so subtle , it FUSES with the visuals completly. So I never think about it in a bad way , they had to make it like this , it's not really Faulconer's fault. I mean they were told to do it this way.
And then I discovered a video on youtube called Most underated bruce faulconer tracks in 2010 , or something like that. Just for the fake nostalgia of the alternate US dub version , mostly for the LULZ , But those theme were badass at most,as the tiltle said it was underated. The garlic jr theme comes to mind. I never liked the garlic jr. saga in the japanese version back in the days.But this theme made me like it in the end.
So , several years later and then after a long process , like I said, I finally accepted my fate. As I clicked on this FINAL FLASH HD VERSION on youtube, and I listen to it and I feel the power and compared the two versions. Man it felt great hearing the USA vegeta voice with all his lungs and the THEME , OMG , I fell in love with the music right away, I finally understood why I liked it.Had to read several youtube comments to confirm what I thought , every Quote in the comments, like CELL !!!!! ONCE AGAIN YOU HAVE TAKEN FOR GRANTED , THE POWER OF A TRUE SAYAIN WARRIOR !!!! and like the one with majin vegeta HIS DEBTS !!!! MUST BE PAID !!!!!!! (notice gohan's reaction) I had to rewatch everything , all the dbz ocean 1-53 and switch to funidub with bruce ost. *i love you for what you did Scott Morgan, for the work you did
you really are a hero. ❤Also Mike Smith and Julius, you guys ROCK. I had to watch it as it was intended here in north america. I had to do this and really compare what I was the most accustomed to . Everything felt greater, I could name some songs but its like its EVERYWHERE, I don't even have to point it out. But as a real fan I must share my joy about the Faulconer tracks during every scene, be it action , dramatic, sad theme, its all 100% to me. It fits DBZ so well , I wonder why I hated it in the past. And I see all those discussions about it and Had to create an account just for it. As soon as I saw THE MAN , SCOTT MORGAN in that thread , I was decided to share all.(everytime i see you scott on some comments or forum it really feel great, you are GOKU !!! Everyday I listen to dbz musics or scene from youtube in one earphone while I work. HELL BELLS ❤ TRUNKS THEME OVERALL ❤ the theme that plays when goku is about to teleport with cell to save the earth ❤ Vegeta vs Freeza theme (the guitar is just so BADASS and the DRUM TOO !!! ) The last 10secs of the pikkon's theme is so godlike, infact the entire song but the end is just so godlike.
All those tracks that I used to make fun of became a true masterpiece to my eyes. COUGH* pikkon's theme *COUGH!!!!
Now It's really like I will never enjoy the japanese ost for what it is again, apart from the nostalgia. My tastes evolved. It's only recently in 2017 that I re-watched everything and every theme that I used to love in the japanese version like vegeta theme or piccolo's theme and the gohan ssj2 song with vocals (the trunks theme hikari no will power in the psx games and early super famicom games which are off topic but still) felt inferior to some extent. Even with real instruments. Also , having a bunch of characters specific theme in the US dub is really a plus in my opinion. As soon as I understood there was a vegeta's theme and that it is really nicely used in every badass scene vegeta is talking there was no turning back. Sometimes it's nice to have something refreshing like this, its really another dimension
I mean sure I like the japanese version but after a while it gets old, and I agree it sounds a bit like hanna barbara at some point even if they still have some guitar at some other points.
(Frieza ginyu theme = Android 16 theme is so godlike (I WILL KILL CELL speech ) , Android 16 rips cell's tails off , Every cell themes (especially the cell 1st form , so scary )
Mystic Gohan( in fact every gohan themes) Hyper bolic time chamber (the future Trunks monologue comes to mind) Goku super sayain3 theme
Ginyu force theme (when jeice get killed) , When vegeta sacrifices himself to kill buu (this moment is incredible when HELLS BELLS kicks in)Vegeta first time super sayain vs android 19. Vegetto's theme.
The Future trunks power up theme against Cell (Krillin: AWRIGHT TRUNKS , THIS IS IT !!! If you're still planing on saving Vegeta , you better not wait any longer) Then the Trunks theme literally bursts out and the intensity in Trunks face just before he begins to really power up , and then I just cannot express how much this high pitch noise really nails it . ❤ A little help from a friend ❤ Super namek ❤When Piccolo is doing his light grenade: MAKOSEN HA !!!!!!! vs imperfect cell and then the nice transition into the dragon theme OMG <3 Dude , even the News theme that played during the imperfect cell saga, As soon as I heard that little one tone news theme I was HOOKED, whenever that small quiet news theme played , I was looking at my screen as if Cell was in town. Really HYPE . I tell you , that News theme . Enough said. Every time I hear the ending theme of the episode , I can't describe how hype I am.
*You question me , you Body snatcher?!!! HUH !!!?? Well...I Guess i'll just show you then
(vegeta to ginyu after killing jeice and then vegeta meteor smashes ginyu to the ground and as the explosion happens the ending theme slowly comes out of the fucking bushes
I really love that part.
The sage music that plays when goku powers up his kaioken vs captain ginyu .(everything I said is about the old broadcast version on toonami or vhs , i didnt see all of the remastered .) Chris Sabatt and
I could go on forever but its already forever as it is. And when I think about a good dbz song in the japanese version , sure I like some , maybe 4 or 5 of them but it's really not on the same level. I just love the whole US Ost more and the fact that every scene was tailored made with music in mind makes it just perfect. I dont mind the edits (shift in music) and the lack of silence anyway.
BLABLABLA the best thing is to enjoy the japanese version first and then let the US DUB WIN the GRAND FINAL !!! .Every scene that I was used to watch in japanese now became much more intense with this Ost. Not everyone is gonna like it, but give it some time, like an old wine it will only taste better as time goes
I also prefer sega genesis music over snes to some extent
never underestimate VEGETA ❤
so that's it , bye guys.
