Re: Serious Dragon Ball Questions For Fans About The Voice of Goku

In Japanese? It would be very hard to get used to a new Goku. Nozawa is just irreplaceable in that role and everything about her performance just feels so hard to replicate because its such a unique and compelling voice. In English? That's a completely different ballgame because we've had so many ac...

Re: The Trimark (BLT) Dub of Dragon Ball

I think redubbing DB movie 1 and DBZ movies 1-3 with the inhouse cast was a great idea, the US and Australian fanbases particularly had been well accustomed to the cast by that point, but I don't think it was a good idea to scrap the Pioneer dubs from being an option on every release of DBZ movies 1...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Manga UK Home Release Thread

Yeah I could understand TOEI Europe not wanting to promote the Super series as much while Broly was still fresh, but now that the movie's out on Blu-Ray it just feels like money left on the table. I'd hope we'll get Part 7 before Funimation announces Part 8, because now that they own Manga UK I'd ho...

Re: DB could work as Cartoon Series?

Isn't Dragon Ball already a cartoon? At least in the parameter of an animated show that has demographic of children? It's no more or less of a cartoon now than it was back in the 1980s and 1990s. I think people try too much to distinguish anime from American animated shows by labelling the latter a...

Re: DB could work as Cartoon Series?

I'd say no. Part of Dragon Ball's charm is the Eastern style, imagery and general feel. We've seen what Americanizing the series does when it comes to music and dialogue, losing Toriyama's wacky and distinctive art style would be an even greater loss. It would be more interesting if it was a case li...

Re: Did the franchise ever POSITIVELY affect you?

Simply never giving up, its a part of who I am, it's something people who know me personally always notice. I've had many trials and tribulations in my life, and whenever I felt like giving up watching Dragon Ball entertained me and inspired me to appreciate the good I had in my life. It got me thro...

It's an intriguing turn of events, but I'll be waiting to see how things shape up as it could really go either way now. I'm just glad this happened after Broly, so we don't have to put up with the green tint for the UK release. Yeah, when I heard Manga UK's release didn't have the tint I was cautiou...

An update on the test dub from the BLT movie with the Harmony Gold names: This guy's got ahold of a copy.

No idea if he'll share.
Ah that's great. I'll definitely ask politely as I'd love to see this dub.

Chris Sabat wanting Scott McNeil to play Piccolo - A Kai Urban Legend

It's been said several times on these forums that Sabat wanted Scott McNeil to take over the role of Piccolo in Funimation's dub of Kai. This claim, although never clarified appears to be accepted by some posters here, so I'm wondering has there been anything to validate it? I've personally never he...

As you say, this is thinking quite far ahead, but if anyone has any ideas on something we could do about trying to push for a Toonami UK revival with Ocean Kai having some presence on the network, it's probably something worth talking about while we wait for the Wow situation to move forward. I'd l...

Dragon Ball Super Broly Collector's Edition with the stickers and poster, arrived earlier today.
Got mine also today, straight away rewatched the whole thing immediately. Still such a great movie in every way.

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

I don't get why people find Zeno cynical. He's a parody of the stereotypical Dragon Ball fanboy. He likes to watch fights between the strongest characters and thinks highly of Goku. I could also see the erasing universes gimmick being dropped, Beerus doesn't even try destroy planets anymore and his ...

I really wish we still had HMV in Ireland. I have so many great memories of going in any time I was in the local shopping centre to be surrounded by hundreds of titles and picking up a few on sale. I heard they are making a comeback in Canada so maybe there's still hope. We still have Golden Discs a...

Yeah, I got an email from Base to say my copy of Super Broly is being processed and will be dispatched shortly. I got the Collector's Edition, and will be getting the postcards too.

Can't wait. Be great to see the movie again in the best possible quality :D

The real tragedy isn't that this might not exist, it's that if it does exist, there's no way it ever will be released. Funi just don't do releases of the sort that would have this, and no one else puts out their own, independent English releases of the show. Worse still, even if the masters still e...

I like aspects of both. I like the vibrancy and clarity that comes from digital when done well.
