Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I’m at least somewhat surprised Funimation hasn’t made some sort of disclaimer in light of #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter, Roshi’s sexual lechery and Mr.Popo’s whole character (in the Japanese version in particular) is pretty yikes. Obviously Dragon Ball shouldn’t be censored but some sort of disclaim...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 21 - DB episode 91-95 (CURRENT WEEK)

I just want say Pamput has one of the worst/most baffling voices in the English dub. He’s suppose to be this pretty boy movie star who can also kinda fight but for some reason Sonny Strait voices him like some generic mook? I don’t know if I buy that Toriyama doesn’t plan out the results. Maybe he ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 19 - DB episodes 81-85

Mostly the Crane school stuff like when they break for lunch during the preliminaries and Tenshinhan complains about the food and almost fights Yamcha. Or the restaurant scenes where the Crane and Turtle groups go back and forth. I think those kinds of scenes cheapen Tenshinhan's character a little...

Re: How does the Goku/Vegeta rivalry compare to the Naruto/Sasuke rivalry

Never forget Goku and Vegeta’s boring uninteresting rivalry walked so Naruto and Sasuke and every generic obnoxious shonen anime rivalry could run.

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 20 - DB episode 86-90 (CURRENT WEEK)

AFAIK second form Freeza is the only one to retain his filtered voice effect in the remastered dub. Probably because Linda Young’s unfiltered voice would sound ridiculous on second form Freeza.

No doubt the movie has some pacing issues but it’s a fun like stand alone adventure. Dragon Ball does horror.

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

Of the three OG Dragon Ball movies this is easily my favorite. Too much of Legend of Shenlong was retreading some stuff from the first 13 episodes. Movie 3 loses me after Goku gets dodonpa’s to Karin Tower. This movie kept a nice simple adventure that was fun from start to finish and felt wholly uni...

If we mean cute like adorable Goku as a child takes the cake. Goten as a child is a pretty strong contender.

- Viz's half arsed treatment of the manga.
Funnily, if I'm not mistaken, Kanzenshuu supports Viz's releases for some reason.

I think they support Viz because it’s the official legal release of the manga

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 17 - DB episodes 76-80 (CURRENT WEEK)

Episode 76 is a prime example of why the original Dragon Ball is a must watch for any Dragon Ball Z fan . As Goku’s reunion with grandpa Gohan is one of the sweetest most memorable moments in the series. The Funi dialogue here breaks my heart every time Goku says "I looked for you everywhere and I ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 17 - DB episodes 76-80 (CURRENT WEEK)

Mind you, if the concern is an American audience not recognising what sake is (which, honestly, I'd argue is a silly concern for Funi to have :lol: ),. It is, but keep in mind this is the same company that insist on the characters using the imperial system despite what little sense that actually ma...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

The one with lyrics is the original. It's based off the French OP, but is a little longer. I guess the UK broadcasters thought it was too childish, so they replaced it with the dubstep one most of the time, though infrequent they would forget to do this and the other OP would play. I'm pretty sure ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 17 - DB episodes 76-80 (CURRENT WEEK)

[*]In Funimation's dub, Shu suggests that the Pilaf gang should cease searching for Dragon Balls. In the edited version, Pilaf says "You're fired!", while in the uncut version, he says "Shut up!" (Anecdotal) This reminds me of the whole “Bite me/Turkey” from Z. I wonder what makes Funimation decide...

Re: The UUE TV Broadcast

If the difference was Vic's Butta, then fine. I'm assuming they changed it back to Sabat to have consistency in the orange brick release. It was probably more convenient than booting Vic to go in and do Butta for the one or two episodes that he's featured in for the 1999 portion of the series (for ...

Is there is a specific example of when they used the word hell in the ultimate uncut version. I’ve watched up to the first 20 episodes recently and the word hell hasn’t been uttered once even when Goku’s actually in hell.
