Re: How do you own the series? (2021 Edition)

It's also worth noting the Dragon Boxes are out of print, so buying them isn't legally supporting the series anyway, but rather supporting a private business owner who in most cases will rip you off. I always encourage everyone to buy whatever release they can, and as of now the 30th Blu-Rays are as...

I dunno I almost want to go back to Robo’s rewatch thread and do a Kai sub vs dub comparison but that might get tiring.
Go for it, would be very interesting to read, and a great reference point for discussions on Kai's levels of accuracy :thumbup:

Re: What would you like Dragon Ball to cross-over with?

I wouldn't be opposed to nerfing Dragon Ball characters for a cross over, because naturally it would be a gag story anyway.

For Marvel or DC Guardians of the Galaxy would be a good fit aesthetically and tonally to mix in with Dragon Ball characters.

Re: Sharing your Dragon Ball Fandom with your kids!

Don't have kids yet myself, but whenever I do it would definitely be nice to share my love of this series with them, and ultimately pass on all my manga and home media of it so they will always have them to remember me by. I wouldn't worry about Dragon Ball being dated by the time anyone's kids are ...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Has anyone outside the Netherlands ever bought any Dragon Ball stuff on Marktplaats? I'm looking at some stuff there but I can't register my account as they are looking for a Dutch phone number (which I don't have). Thanks.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

I wonder how many of the voice actors from either Vancouver or Texas knew how iconic Dragon Ball in general was in Japan and was likely about to become worldwide. I'd imagine, based on the interviews they've done with Geekdom very few of them did. It's nice knowing in hindsight the likes of Corlett ...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

But hasn’t every territory that would, in theory, broadcast an Ocean Super dub already shown the Funimation dub? It's the same case as Kai. The UK and Ireland, which have traditionally aired mostly Canadian dubs have shown the Funimation dub, but nothing has been broadcast in Canada. Not sure about...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

I would rather see Ocean Studios do their own take on Super at this point. I think most people would, but sadly TOEI has only given Super licences to companies that have either dubbed both Kai 1.0 and TFC or in Bang Zoon's case dubbed neither. Since Ocean only did Kai 1.0 they likely won't have a c...

Re: I feel like the Super anime (or a continuation of it?) has been quietly canceled

I'd like an adaptation of the Moro arc to be anywhere between 30 and 50 episodes, although either could do it justice if done right. Would be nice to see a good old style long form Dragon Ball story arc in the anime again and Moro has the potential for it.

Re: Collectors: storage options, climate control, etc.

I was lucky enough buying my house that one of the guestrooms was spacious enough we could corner off one end to use it as a storage space. Inside there's pretty standard IKEA billy bookcases but they hold all my media, including DVDs and Blu-Rays. It also isn't as insolated as other areas of the ho...

Re: Would you Have Auditioned for Super?

Most definitely. Would be an honour to work on an official Dragon Ball product, even if it was for free, especially in this day and age where you don't have to live in the region it's being recorded in.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

Replacement scores make dubs more profitable because of royalties, so even if using the Kikuchi score was cheaper from day one Funimation still would have been better off using the Faulconer score. Artistically it wasn't the best decision in retrospect, but from a business perspective it made sense....

Do we know how exactly Ocean got the rights to dub Kai 1.0? Was it whatever allowed them to dub the rest of Z without Funimation? Do we know for sure dubbing companies need legal rights to dub any Dragon Ball material, other than getting TOEI's approval? After all, we know no company like Funimatio...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

People on this site have a tendancy to blame every little misconception on Funimation's dub, even when it's completely unfounded. I will say while Funimation is guilty of a lot of things quite of bit of criticisms leveled at Funimation can be found in Toei as well (Making Goku more heroic, making G...

Do we actually know how many episodes of DBKAI Ocean dubbed, was it a few, did they do the entire thing, did they also do the final chapters? It's honestly pretty weird since there's no bad in releasing it right now. It's been well documented, and confirmed by the CRTC that Ocean dubbed all 98 epis...

Re: Change one thing about a Dragon Ball series and make it better

DB - tone down on Rishi being a pervert DBZ - improve the pacing (Kai helped to an extent, but was too fast other times like the Saiyan arc) DBGT - give meaningful arcs for any characters other than Goku Kai - as said above slower pacing for Saiyan arc, closer to the pacing of the Saban dub Kai TFC ...

Re: Can DB Ever Move Past Goku?

I don't think there's any reason why we can't have new Dragon Ball content without Goku. There would certainly need to be an adjustment period though.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

I imagine Lee Tockar watched the series when it was originally on, so some influence from the previous Canadian voices isn't too unexpected. A few parts of his two lines there actually remind me of Linda Young a little. Hard to say for the original series, never heard him talk about it, but it's ce...
