Are the Madman singles overrated?

I recently purchased a few Madman singles for the Saban dub, not only because I live in Oceania and they're local to me, but because I've heard some here say that they're the best way to experience that particular dub. I have no prior experience for the Saban-era singles, since growing up I only had...

Re: DBZ Ocean Group Remastered

There were actually two different versions of the Saban era "Rock the Dragon" outro. There's the original one for Episodes 1-26 and the one used from Episodes 27-53, which has updated credits. Just a minor gripe, it's great to have another way of viewing these first 53 episodes.

Re: Why did Cartoon Network revert back to the Saban dub in early 2006?

A similar sort of thing happened here when Network Ten started playing The Saban dub again in 2010, 6 years after it had last played anything Dragon Ball related. It seemed very random at the time, and they didn't go past episode 53 into Funi's dub. I'm pretty sure the Saban dub aired just once in 2...

Re: Which year do you consider the start of the revival?

For English speaking countries I break things up like this, Late 90s-early 2000s = peak popularity of Dragon Ball Mid-late 2000s = the dark years Early 2010s = the period when Dragon Ball was only relevant because of nostalgia Mid-2010s onward = the revival For Japan, Late 80s-early 90s = peak popul...

Home video release ideas thread

As far as niche releases go, one idea I have is: "Dragon Ball: The Lost dubs" Volume 1 (Dragon Ball): The BLT dub for DB episodes 1-13 and DB movie 1 The Blue Water dub for the rest of Dragon Ball The Big Green dub for DB movies 2-3 Also comes with a CD of "Dragon Ball: Original USA Television sound...

Re: I got a really weird batch of DBZ singles, anyone know more?

So I got some DBZ singles, Saiyan and Namek saga, from Australia. But the weird thing is, it has the numbering on it like all of Madman's singles, but it says both Madman and Pioneer on the cover. I thought Pioneer only released the singles in the US. They're also all region 4, which is Australia, ...

Re: Official "Show off your Dragonball Crap" Thread

My collection. It's a mix of North American, Australian and UK release. That's because in The Netherlands we only got the big green dvd's and 8 single dvd's :D I wish there was some way I could get those Dutch single DVDs. They're the only DBZ home video release that has Saban's logo in the credits

Does the copyright year gradually change over time in the Japanese language credits? Does it even have one?

In Funimation's older releases, the copyright year in the end credits often reflected when their dub was produced, rather than the year that the episode was produced. In more recent releases they seem to go with just a single year for an entire series. In GT's Green Brick release for example all 64 ...

Which causes the worst in-fighting among Dragon Ball fans?

Off the top of my head, there's: FUNi Z dub fans vs Sub fans (Still going strong even today. A quick stroll through Youtube comments will confirm this) FUNi Z dub fans vs Ocean fans (Seems to have died down ever since Drummond did Copy Vegeta and the Oceans VAs began appearing at Kamehacons with the...

Re: What Could've Been....But Wasn't!!!

I actually think Funimation would have tried to push Saban (and by extension, Ron Wasserman) out of the equation regardless. From what I've pieced together over the years through interviews it seems that Barry Watson and Gen Fukunaga were frustrated with the lack of control they had over the Wasser...

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

I'm sure there wouldn't be as much activity but no way things would be dead if we didn't have new material. How many old shows and movies keep finding new audiences? Plenty. Western fandom for stuff like Sailor Moon is mainly based around those who grew up with it in the 90s/early 00s. You could ar...

Re: The earliest dub other than the first one you heard.

In my country we had the exact same experience as Americans, hearing the Ocean voices in the Saban dub for the first 53 episodes of Z, followed by the Funimation voices for everything that came afterwards. The Big Green dub in 2011 was the first new one I ever heard on the internet. This clip specif...

Is there anyone who personally believes that things would’ve been better off if BoG never happened? At the very least, I assume these forums would’ve been dead by now if it weren’t for the revival.

True, i mean Pioneer's edited dub only single discs/box sets went out of print back in mid 2003 once their sublicense for Z expired (leading up to FUNi's own in house redub which was announced shortly before or around the same time) and the Rock the Dragon set is the most recent release but was hel...
