Re: The Many English Dubs (Revised)

Wouldn't the airing of the Pioneer dubs of DBZ Movies 1-2 on YTV be the same edited versions that showed on US Toonami and were released on the Rock the Dragon collection, and the airing of DBZ Movie 3 be of the Saban dub?

Also, YTV aired the Funi dubs of the two Z specials and Lord Slug.

Re: The Many English Dubs (Revised)

Come to think of it, you didn't mention the Animax dub of Dragon Ball either... or the Bang Zoom dub of Dragon Ball Super ep 1-27.

Re: Toriyama Reveals What Inspired Mr. Satan vs. Cell!!

And I have an uncle at Toei who told me that Toriyama did indeed say this. He also confirmed that Toriyama's favourite Dragon Ball character is Jiren, and he prefers the Funimation dub with the Faulconer score, over any other version; apparently it's a truer representation of his vision than anythi...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 13 - DB episodes 56-60 (CURRENT WEEK)

Toonami didn’t help with shit like this: https://youtu.be/s36szNpqix4 Wow, people weren't kidding when they said that Dragon Ball was advertized like a Muppet Babies esque spinoff instead of, you know, the beginning of the story . It's like it's trying to discourage people from watching. It makes m...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 13 - DB episodes 56-60 (CURRENT WEEK)

Apparently, according to French Wikipedia, the AB Groupe canceled their dub of the original Dr Slump anime 55 episodes in because they were tired of censoring the abundant poop jokes. They didn't even bother dubbing the remake anime. When was blatantly showing poop (even cartoonish poop) acceptable ...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

This is going to be disgusting, but I wonder if the coronavirus is going to increase the chances of Ocean Kai airing in Canada on account of it being "new" content while current and upcoming programming gets postponed or cancelled left and right. I mean, sure, it's only one show, but still.

Re: Freeza Saga Son Gohan humming Makafushigi Adventure in French dub

The French OPs were different, but the rest of the music was not. It wouldn't surprise me if the French actors had some level of familiarity with the Kikuchi score and its various motifs.

Wasn't there an episode of the Saban dub where Bulma sang a bit of the BLT DB theme to herself?

Re: Preserving the Nicktoons Airings of DB Material

And I guess that does also de-values a lot of the Nicktoons preservation, knowing that pretty much everything non-Kai is basically the Toonami versions It doesn't devalue it that much. If anything, it means that the old Toonami stuff that was rerun on Nicktoons was more likely to have better qualit...

There haven't been any new transfers made since the last upload... which actually appears to have been done late in 2018. Guess I forgot when they were uploaded... Still, since the aforementioned 2...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

For your information, the early episodes of the Latin American Spanish dub (Cloverway) still uses the footage inherited from Zero y el Dragôn Mágico, so it's the very same transfer as that of the Harmony Gold dub. The same edits? Probably. The same master? probably. The same footage? probably not. ...

Re: Which dub is more faithful to the original audio?

Icarus is the Funimation dub name for what you're probably familiar with as Haiya Dragon, who appeared in DBZ Movies 3-5 as well as the Garlic Jr saga. Also, my impressions of the BKS opening and ending themes of the DB trilogy dub? Yeah, trying to shoehorn the lyrics of Makafushigi Adventure into W...

Re: Recording vs Buying In the 90's/2000's

You were able to get English fansubs? I was under the impression that most of those were sold in the US. The NTSC/PAL difference probably didn't help matters either. How were you able to acquire them?

I think you mean "popular". "poplar" refers to a kind of tree. As for Studio Gabia DBZ Movie 3... I knew that theatrical Tree of Might was edited, but what was cut exactly?

You seem like you didn't read my post. I wrote French dub of super and the new movies. I could add Kai there too. I did read your post. Has to be the Spanish Mexican dub for Z.
