Re: Craziest Dragon Ball-related opinions, rumours, etc.

Dragon Ball was a light-hearted martial arts comedy, unlike Dragon Ball Z which was a serious sci-fi action series

Re: Brice Armstrong (Captain Ginyu, Lord Slug) passed away

Definitely preferred him as a narrator over the others. I understand this wasn’t an option for Kai but I wish they had used him as a narrator for Z when they were doing the redubbing to connect it with Dragon Ball better instead of Funimation treating it like the lesser prequel. Not a fan of his Lor...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 3 - DB episodes 11-15

It and the finale to the 21st TB get their proper due in the Kai dub where Goku realizes that it was his fault Gohan is dead and the Tournament grounds were destroyed, which was a great touch. Iirc the 2005 redub also addressed this. It was only the 96 dub that Funimation pretended that Vegeta did ...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 3 - DB episodes 11-15

I never cared much for the final four episodes that close out the Shen Long arc they just seemed so stretched out for early Dragon Ball like the first arc had to be 13 episodes. Something to think about if Grandpa Gohan told Goku never to stare at a full moon he must have survived at least one trans...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The climax of the first dragon ball hunt is also all strategy. From Oolong cheating Pilaf out of a wish to Yamcha holding Oozaru Goku in place long enough for Puar to cut off his tail. While I do still think that overall power battle is the deciding factor in who wins throughout DB, there was a lot...

Such a series would be much too expensive to work.
It wouldn’t and I don’t know how you came to that conclusion.

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

Anyway, I do think it’s interesting that a fair amount of people prefer Corlett, not because I think Corlett is bad, but because Kelamis is the one who voiced Goku in the Pioneer movie dubs, which have always been held in pretty high regard. People liked the Pioneer movie dubs because of the faithf...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Oob is a pretty bland character. It’s not surprising GT really had no idea what to do with him and he ended up becoming another Gohan (character who we’re told could be the most powerful fighter but due to a lack of drive like Goku and Vegeta ended up mediocre) Oob is a good idea for a series finale...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

just thought Kelamis resembled Nozawa's Goku in general. Nozawa didn’t voice Goku like he was the 5th Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle... He may not have had enough time to develop his Goku, but he definitely left an impression with the short time he had. I agree but it’s mostly because all the other En...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

Given their work on series like Inuyasha, numerous Gundam shows, Transformers anime series, and even many cartoons we all know (3 Eds for one), I would have expected them to do a lot better in DB, but maybe they should have tackled it much later after they’d gained more experience. I thought the vo...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Getting back to my point from earlier, it's kinda weird that they cast her in those roles. You'd think they'd cast differently & I don't buy the "Gohan is a mini-Goku" logic. Literally, that's something the anime staff came up with. He & Goku are vastly different characters, even as kids. Like, not...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

Not sure about Dead Zone & World's Strongest. But either way, the first two episodes of Z for sure aren't how they aired on Toonami; the first two episodes had their references to death taken out for all reruns, including the Toonami run. This can be explained somewhat loosely by factoring in that ...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

I can't seem to get into the Blue Water dub, though. I don't know why it's so hard for me. I think a lot of the voice actors chosen were no worse, if not better, than Funimation's but for some reason, it's hard for me to sit through. I think its the sound quality. Like they couldn’t afford good aud...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Not sure why someone would need to be fluent in Japanese to tell the differences in her voice. There are differences in how she plays the Son family, they're just very subtle ones. I for one, can pick her Kid Goku apart from her Kid Gohan and Goten voices. I was mainly talking about nuances in the ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

From what I can tell having at least Goku and Gohan sharing a voice actress as kids is standard across the board in most dubs not just English and Japanese. And Nozawa’s Goku as a child sounds nothing like her Gohan as a child or her Goku as an adult for that matter. I do think her teenage and adult...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

English dubs cast base more on if a voice fits a particular character, especially in regards to their ages & if they're exactly like another one Guess that explains why they gave a prepubescent boy a chain smoker voice. I disagree on the chain smoker part, but Nadolny got cast because she sounded m...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

In theory, this kinda makes sense... But the TV versions of the Pioneer movies didn't use alternate lines or anything like that Did the versions of Dead Zone and World’s Strongest Funimation use for the Rock the Dragon set differ from how they aired on Toonami? And then there's the problem that the...
