Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Isn't FUNI owned by Sony? I mean they're a million dollar company, this isn't 1999 anymore when they were scraping to get by. They license dozens of anime every year. It's mind blowing they wouldn't be able to fund a DBZ redub. And as said think of this long term. Dragonball Z is an evergreen serie...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Despite that through, its dub is a selling point, something that won't be possible if Z is redubbed. If you want all 291 episodes you have to buy Z, but you also have to buy Kai for a good dub. Why re-dub Z when you can force people to buy both ? The “this is a the dub done right”’ aspect isn’t rea...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

And the music changes outside the songs that most folks liked even if they didn't like the dub, could be hit or miss at times. The DiC music while not nearly as good as the Japanese score still held its own pretty well and was usually used effectively (so you know the opposite of pretty much any re...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Forgive me if I sound condescending, but I do have to ask: what exactly would people hope to get out of a DBZ redub that they can’t already get with Kai? As much as I believe that Kai was just a cheap cash grab on Toei’s end, it still gave fans an English dub that’s universally seen as being superi...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

As others have mentioned, money. Additionally, even if they wanted to do a redub, considering Schemmel didn't want to be part of a partial redub, I doubt he would've participated in a full on redub of Season 3 onward. And a Dragon Ball Z dub without the voice actor for Goku is kind of a non-starter...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

I think I might have figured out why Viz didnt work. Maybe its because there is no emotion in the Japanese version of that particular scene. Irrelevant. It’s not like Studiopolis’s voice director intentionally said “Hey be underwhelming because that’s how Japan did it” The DiC dub just wasnt afraid...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

The "remastered" DBZ dub does its job, in terms of fixing major inconsistencies like actors changing mid-run, right? Yes but it doesn’t account too much for how different the 2005 performances were from the 1999-2000 recordings so other than a few select redubs you still have Goku suddenly sounding...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

It's not like the old dub is going anywhere, there's now hundreds of reprints of the old dub on DVDs and streaming sites so old fans still have that version if they want. but that dub isnt even sold anymore, just the newer partial redub+jacked up sound effects "Remaster" dub. Any nostalgia they cou...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

So are people under the impression a new dub wouldn't sell? It wouldn’t sell well enough to justify the effort of redubbing 291 episodes. That’s just a fact. Dubbing aint cheap. P Imagine the promotion, "A new redubbed Dragonball Z and new DVD boxsets!" and imagine how they could re-sell it to Cart...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Money. People (as in Joe Schmoe who grew up with the show on Toonami in the late 90s/early 2000s) like the dub, the Orange Bricks despite a shitty remastering and a half ass redub for season 3 still sold extremely well. Why put in the time and money to re-do something that’s already a big seller? It...

11 actually, which is far less than Z's 19-20.
11 is less than Z’s 18 episodes (87-104) but 11 is still pretty long for a single fight. The longest fight in the original Dragon Ball was six episodes. Especially since those 11 episodes still includes that pointless Bulma/Ginyu Frog filler

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 39 - DBZ episode 18-22 (CURRENT WEEK)

I always thought Bubbles was only the monkey's name in the dub so Funi could appeal to the American market with a specific cultural reference, quite surprised to learn that was his name in the original version as well. Michael Jackson was popular in Japan too. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/s...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 39 - DBZ episode 18-22 (CURRENT WEEK)

The explanation is Saiyan children’s tails can grow back (or at least they used to) Goku’s tail grew back twice as a kid until God removed it for good. So I’m glad Toei attempted to be consistent with this and had Gohan’s tail grow back a few times

At this point in time in the manga, Gohan turns into an Oozaru and falls on top of Vegeta when he cuts his tail, Goku begs Kuririn to spare Vegeta and let him escape, Chichi finally re-unites with Gohan, the gang start problem solving how get to Namek so they can use their Dragon Balls, and Bulma a...

Re: I feel like the slow pacing for DBZ in the anime and filler works to its advantage

The fights in Kai never felt like they moved too fast tbh. Goku vs Freeza was still like 13 episodes iirc. It’s the non-action scenes in Kai that suffer. Gohan’s turnaround in the Saiyan arc happens out of nowhere. One minute he’s terrified of climbing down a mountain and whining about being hungry ...

They never mentioned anything about him going Ssj4. This image has bee...
