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

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.

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

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...

Gotta love having someone act as if Funimation was the only company in America that could have done Dragon Ball justice. Give me a fucking break...

That's sure a lot of people that are against Vic. And ISWV seriously says that most of the industry support him, like JYB for example.

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

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.

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

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

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

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...

Although I think Kamiya would have been great in that role, I don't have many problems with Nozawa's performance.

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.

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

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.

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

Justin Cook's Super Buu after he absorbs Gotenks and Gohan if I recall just sounded like a poor attempt at doing a pro wrestler impression. In fact, most of the old Funimation grunts sounded like the voice actors were doing these wrestling noises.

Wow, some people don't like Shibata's Yi Xing Long. The character was a crappy villain, but Shibata IMO did an excellent job. The guy is one of the best seiyuus at playing vilains.

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

There's some good things about One Piece, but it's unnecessarily long. Like, does it seriously need to be that long? And even if it did world building better than Dragon Ball, that hardly matters, since having more world building doesn't mean it's better.

Re: FUNimation's Big Green Moment XD!

Thing that stands out the most there for me is the awkward, flat delivery from everybody. Sounds like a bunch of non-actors reading lines off a prompter for the first time. Abysmal direction going on here. Astounds me that people call Funi's work on the Boo arc anything even approaching decent. :lo...

Re: Can't get into Kai

Robo's right that Kai is a mess of a show. Even if the pacing is better than Z, I still prefer Z a lot more due to the Kikuchi music and the Japanese voice acting. Kai's dub is good, but honestly, if I ever wanted to go back to Kai, I think I'd watch it in Japanese even if the voice acting isn't as ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I’m happy Bosch found a successful career in dubbed anime. He couldn’t act to save his life in Power Rangers. Maybe he got better after? Maybe he was just better suited behind a mic than in front of a camera. Bosch does make for a better voice actor than a live action actor, although if anything, h...
