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

Is this the first time where the dub does away with the dub spelling of Freeza’s name? If so, then that’s an upgrade that I hope remains consistent.

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

Wow. Just...wow.

Mills absolutely nailed Freeza in that episode. He was always a good replacement for Ayres, but I could instantly sniff out the switch the first time I heard it.

Here, though? I couldn’t spot a trace of him at all. Everyone’s favorite emperor is in even better hands than before.

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

They changed Vegeta's line from "Doesn't Chi-Chi have her hands on the money" to "We all know your woman runs the house". If I didn't know any better I'd say Funi deliberately forbid Vegeta to say Earthlings' names Anyways, isn't the next episode the one where Kale goes Broly? I can't wait for the ...

Re: Characters Where You're OK With Both Dub Casts?

Keep in mind that anyone I mention on the FUNi side will be about the respective performances from Kai-onward. Piccolo: Although I prefer Sabat, McNeil was an excellent choice as well. The Ginyu Force (sans Recoome): I felt the Ocean cast all had solid choices for all five members. On the FUNi side ...

Re: Do you think Dragon Ball dub would have benefit from an English Recast?

I don't really see any need in recasting Strait. I think he works well in the part. Neither do I, quite frankly. It’s just not a performance that I think is really irreplaceable. Granted, there are only a few performances from the FUNi cast that I’d call “irreplaceable”, but Strait’s Kuririn, while...

Re: Do you think Dragon Ball dub would have benefit from an English Recast?

I’d like to think that with the positives strives that the core cast of the FUNi dub have made over the years, along with the good casting decisions since Kai (including recasts), any benefits from a complete recast feel like a roll of a twenty-sided dice. In other words, an overall reaping of immen...

Re: Things that grind your gears

Whenever I try to search a dubbed clip of a certain scene from the series on YouTube, I swear that every single available version of said clip has to have the original OST swapped for a piece of Bruce Faulconer’s track. :thumbdown:

Re: Did Piccolo surpass Freeza by the time the Androids arrived?

Definitely. Kuririn mentioned that he was almost as strong as a Super Saiyan, and he made that assessment three years after Future Trunks’ arrival. By the time Kuririn made his claim, the standard of power from a Super Saiyan was significantly higher than it was in the past. Therefore, I’d say that ...

Re: Would you love a Dragon Ball theme park?

If they do, then they have to make a “You must be this tall to ride” sign for the rides and use Commander Red as the benchmark.

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

Man, I don’t like how they handled the line from Yancha about Chiaotzu/Tenshinhan. I usually don’t nitpick about sub vs dub line discrepancies, but that one was a little disappointing. How was it different to the true script? It's been ages since I saw that version of the episode so not sure at all...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

Yeah, I don’t hear a trace of Nozawa in Schemmel’s Goku, either. Not that that’s a bad thing, mind you. I think it’s more important for the dub actor to sound like the character they’re playing than the seiyū’s performance.

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

Just watched the latest episode. I found Black's voice decent. Nothing special or noteworthy about it. I'm glad he doesn't have a silly accent like the video games. Does this Trunks have the same VA as the one from Xenoverse? I remember finding his Xenoverse voice far too raspy. He sounds noticeabl...

I was finally able to pull UI Goku after Lord knows how many stones and Christmas tickets. :lol: Along the way, I managed to pull quite a few banner cards; 2 INT SSB Vegetas, 3 PHY SSB Vegettos, 3 AGL Goku Black Rosés, 1 INT Gogeta, 1 TEQ Beerus, and 5 INT Kid Buus. Pretty good haul for someone who ...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I don't know if this is a new observation or not but I just realized that in every single one of Goku's bouts in the BT finals, pre-DBZ, his opponent will almost immediately gain the upper hand only for Goku to bounce back from it like nothing happened.
