Re: Do you still enjoy non-canon Dragon Ball content?

Yeah, I do. I suppose Minus is supposed to be the actual canon, or whatever, but I still prefer the Bardock special. The quality of it is far better than Minus. Give me asshole Bardock any day of the week. That's what was so good about the Bardock special, an asshole from a race of assholes that fin...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I think men voicing women REALLY depends. Ed Asner as Granny Goodness was f'n perfect. And wasn't the original actor for Uranai Baba male? I like Tanaka in the role, but the original actor really sold the "old crone" aspect so well. It should be rare, bottom line. Yep, he was hilarious in the part.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I couldn't care less if it's not a black or an Asian actor/actress doing the voices for Asian or black characters if they're done well. I mean, Monica Rial and Chris Sabat voiced African-Americans in a show I'm not remembering at the moment and they worked well. Samurai Jack is voiced by Phil LaMarr...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 18 - DB movie 2 (CURRENT WEEK)

Nachi Nozawa was a lot of fun as Lucifer. Fun fact, the man was the official Japanese voice over actor for Al Pacino and Bruce Willis.

Also, the funniest thing about the Big Green dub of this movie is that a woman voiced Yamcha. :lol:

Re: Robotech Actors in DB, Yay?

I could see Cam Clarke do a good Zarbon. Tony Oliver would either work as Krillin or Goku.

And Robo's right that Barbara Goodson and Wendee Lee were well cast as Kid Goku and Bulma, such adorable voices for the characters.

Re: Keiji Fujiwara, voice of Men-Men, passed away

I always loved that distinctive raspy voice of his. He was great in everything and always made any show more watchable with his performances. Also did great voice over performances as Iron Man, The Joker and Judge Dredd.

Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

I'd say it's worse. Everytime I think of Justin Chatwin's performance, I just cringe. And Ernie Hudson, why do you keep popping up in horrible movies, man? I guess he needed a paycheck. Chow Yun-fat was at least a decent choice for Roshi.

Scott reprising the roles that he played in the Buu saga wouldn't make any sense since Ocean only dubbed the first 98 episodes of Kai and not the rest.

Sean Schemmel is a notorious rube whose friends struggle to put up with his douche-iness. He's a self-important twerp people put up with because they swim in the same pond. Agreed. He seems like an insecure "nice guy". Disagree, he does not come off as insecure to me at all. Please elaborate on why...

When it comes to the other voices of Goku, he does come across as an ass. What was his response to the idea of Ian James Corlett voicing Goku Black for the Funimation dub of Super? "FUCK YOU I'M GOKU HE QUIT!" And my favorite of all: "YOU'RE NOT GOKU I'M GOKU!" to Kirby Morrow when Kirby was tweetin...

Re: What is your opinion about the artistic style of Dragon Ball Super?

For the most part of the series, it's pretty bad, but it improved a great deal with Takahashi and Shida on board.

Regarding Clinkenbeard, she does sound a bit feminine at times despite her Gohan being a good performance.

I agree with ABED. That piece of music of the Wasserman dub when Goku arrives on Namek is pretty good. Heck, I'm even fond of the piece where Vegeta finds out that Gohan has a Dragon Ball. The Faulconer score just is too hardcore. I've some people here saying that it would fit Transformers G1 better...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

Honestly, I lost my enthusiasm for her Genkai when she had to play the younger version of her. It just came across as a miscast where as in the Japanese version, they had Megumi Hayashibara voice her.

Mayumi Tanaka as Baba. Such a grating performance. Don't understand the need to replace Junpei Takiguchi in the role, who reminded me of Ed Asner's Granny Goodness, although it was a comedic performance. Hiroaki Miura as Zarbon. So bland compared to Sho Hayami's portrayal of the character. Ryotaro O...

Re: I kinda wished Goku was more hickish in the Dub.

I don't know if I could take Goku seriously with a Southern accent in an English dub. Dropping an "ain't'" every now and then is a lot better than having a voice actor doing an accent.
