Re: Looks like Netflix picked up DBZ for the Netherlands (and other EU countries perhaps?)

On one hand, I'd assume it'd be the FUNi dub so that it would sync with a potential japanese track. On the other hand the age ratings do somewhat point towards it being the Ocean Dub Season 1 and Season 2 are rated 6+, these two seasons are also the Saban-Ocean produced episodes of DBZ, which had hi...

Re: Dragon Ball Z - Season 9, Does It Look Better on DVD or Blu-ray?

From a purely visual standpoint: Dragon Box>Single>Orange Brick>Blu-ray. I firmly stand by my opinion that the Blu-rays were butchered beyond repair. That's my opinion too. If we'd have gotten the Levels all the way from the start to the finish, the Dragon Boxes wouldn't even be that important as t...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I assume calling it the Westwood dub just makes it easier to distinguish that era. Calling it Ocean dub gets confusing if you mean everything Ocean Group dubbed or just episode 108-276. Calling it the AB Group dub may get confusing because fans seem to associate them with the weird movies they did ...

Re: Ultimate Battle was used 8 times since its debut

Re: Dragon Ball Z - Speedy Dub (Namek/Freeza, Super Saiyan?!)

Pretty sure this is just the Ocean Dub considering the titles of the names and stuff. However, there is speedy dub material of the actual show itself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5XeoYnyFIk https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dragon-Ball-Z-4-Video-CD-Gohan-Shard-Gohans-Metamorphosis-Speedy-Dub-Anime/382...

Re: How do you feel that FUNi changed Puar's gender and animal species to a female cat?

It doesn't bother me whatsoever because even in early Dragon Ball, Pu'erh is a fairly insignificant character, making even less appearances in Z. I think most people assume that Pu'erh is a female anyway due to the voice, and that they're a cat considering they look like one

Re: Was Kai Necessary

Somewhat off topic, but didn't the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime change quite a number of things from the manga that can't be fixed simply by recutting? I never saw much of the anime beyond Duelist Kingdom (and mostly the 4Kids dub at that), but there's a number of changes I recall being made from the original m...

Re: CN has gotten rid of their last anime (No DB on CN)

1. I don't see what this has to do with Dragon Ball since it's on Toonami with high ratings for the block. 2. Does Super really need to be aired in a kid friendly time slot likely being censored? Kids these days still know about Dragon Ball (I heard a primary school student talk about it with his f...

Tried to inform Richard Ian Cox about the dub apparently being cancelled on his tumblr, but also that I liked him in Inuyasha and Gundam 00. He ignored the mentioning of the dub, but was appreciative of the fact that I liked him in those dubs. I wonder why the voice actors weren't informed by the p...

Re: Why did FUNimation spell Freeza with an "i"?

I believe Toei is responsible, as on their website for the DB movies they actually strangely use a lot of English dub terms. So I think that these may have been a result of Toei's old translations. http://corp.toei-anim.co.jp/en/film/detail.php?id=296 in this one we can see Frieza being used. http:/...

That sounds more like his Blue Water voice IMO. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I personally don't think he sounds like Roger Rhodes. Keep in mind you're never going to find a truly perfect impersonation so it's good enough in my opinion and his screams are top notch. I doubt Sabat will be able to top that in the offici...

Definitely not, apart from the fact that FUNi aquired the Dragon Ball license ten years after the series started, by which point the original masters were long gone. ...

This is more or less consistent with what's been going on, though. Remember back when VAs were dropping hints about Buu Kai?
