Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

It’s so sad that nearly 24 hours go by and not a single post. Maybe most people watch subbed and this is not new but there must some dub fans loving these weekly episodes!! 12 more left! Most people don't post here unless they have something to complain about with the dub. Like we got pages after 1...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

After Movies Blu-Rays, with not only looked worse than DBOX The Movies on DVD, but were also censored, i wouldnt count on good Blu-Ray release from Toei. The Kai: TFC BRs have a MUCH better remaster than anything FUNimation have done, short of the levels, in 12 years of "remasters." I'll take my ch...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

I thought orange bricks were hated cos of detail loss, turns out it's the colours too looool, and I'm counting crushing the blacks and whites as detail loss. To lay down what's wrong with them, here's the shortlist. * Loss of detail due to the DNR removing grain & animation lines getting caught in ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I really doubt it. I know people love to villify FUNi, but this one wasn't primarily their fault. The cost of making those releases and the price point weren't attractive at that point in the market place. The home video market was not near where it used to be. My point was that the levels would've...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I take it the level sets were the blu rays that were 14 or so episodes per release. They may have done better, but I doubt much better. Even with time away, the episode count per release and the price point weren't points in its favor. 16-17, actually. Yeah, maybe not, but with FUNi's tendency to r...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

He still went ahead with it to not upset the fans, which is what Toyotaro said. I don't think Toriyama's responsibility dropping "go aheads ¯\_(ツ)_/¯" count as decision making these days, but that could be just me Except it does. He gets final say on what goes into the bigger things to happen in th...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The sad thing is they can also take complaints from the fans who have issues with these sets and twist and turn them into selling points: "For the first time ever all 291 episodes remastered in high definition in the original 4:3 aspect ratio" I hate to say it because I like how Funimation has dubb...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Hmmm, for episodes 94/95 (I didn't check the rest), Christopher Ayres redubbed Frieza, but only on Funimation's streaming service. Its still Daman Mills on the blu-ray. Is there a chance they could use the Ayres dub on the collection sets whenever those release ? Unless they're aware of the issues ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

This is exactly why it seems like SSJ3 was made up after the fact. Goku was fighting his hardest to stop Majin Vegeta because they were for all intents and purposes equals. Goku knew what was at stake but still held back? Even Goku isn't that stupid. What most likely happened was Toriyama wrote it ...

I personally can't wait to have this in my collection a long with my Dragonboxes. but Funimation has one of the sorriest customer services I have seen. They removed the ''Guest sign in'' option so now I can't check the status of my package to make sure everything is still good with it. messaged em ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Imagine if this arc were a movie instead of an arc. It might move at the speed of sound to rival Sonic the Hedgehog, but it'd be better in terms of the pace & what to focus on. Toyotaro tried to do this with his take on the Universal Survival arc in the manga. But ironically, it suffered from argua...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 7/1/19!)

I said this in a quick comment on your video, Lance, but I never really liked how Team Four Star played Gohan's turn into Super Saiyan 2; that it was him being too much of a pansy as opposed to him being pressured into doing something that has never come naturally to him. The whole message also felt...

I'm really enjoying the addition of Veronica Taylor, but overall the dub is just reminding me how much this arc drags. Far longer and padded out than it needed to be.
50 episodes for a plot that could easily be half that length, so no surprise there.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Yeah at least the lines have some degree of thought put into them, unlike how it was in the early days of the in house Z dub where they really just entirely re wrote stuff on the fly as they went along with the lines being awkward and not fitting the intention of the scenes. One such example of thi...

Re: 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 h...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

My point exactly, just compare how FUNi was when first producing the old DBZ dub in house and most of their modern dub productions in recent history from the last decade including Z Kai and Super are a significant improvement. The differences are night and day, and it's true that some of the lines ...

I get your point there, and yeah in the dub's case with those points you mention i think it's an "old habits die hard" kind of thing on FUNi's part especially considering how long that kind of extreme altering in terms of dialogue and addition of jokes and such that were never there originally in t...

I mean, you’re just flat out, 100% wrong on the Trunks thing. I don’t care what twisting you’re doing to justify it. It is a completely different reaction than the original and paints Trunks’s personality in a different way. As regards the rest, it’s currently 3am so I’ll have to read it later. As ...

Nah, they aren't minor. On their own, completely separate from one another, they are minor. But one after another after another after another add up, are annoying, and most of all, are unnecessary.
