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

What a shame -- his Ginyu never clicked with me, but he was the perfect storybook narrator for Dragon Ball. My condolences to his friends and family. I momentarily suspended a dub/sub Dragon Ball rewatch a couple months ago, but this might make it a little harder to dive back in. He's my second mos...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 4 - DB episodes 16-20

[*]Before its famous appearance in episode 28, the insert song Mezase Tenkaichi appears in episode 19, though only briefly. Interestingly, while Funimation cut the song from episode 28, they kept it in episode 19, and would later keep it when it showed up in the 22nd Tenkaichi Budoukai. Meanwhile, ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It's possible Toei might someday release... An upscale of the Dragon Box footage. TBH that's the best we'll get from them. So yes, I agree that Toei are not going to help us. But Funimation are never going to do it right. Yes, they could do it. They have the raw masters. But they're not going to re...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

As dumb as this might sound FUNimation is really still our only hope of a proper release. Toei is even more unlikely to re-release the entire series again and even if they do, can't guarantee it'll be that much better than what FUNimation puts out, they've proven to be just as disappointing (and in...

Re: Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

Dragon Ball now seems to be moving towards this senseless ideal of "brand unification". I feel it would have been less senseless if it were there from the start and Toei gave a crap about it from the beginning. If they cared about how their biggest franchise was adapted in the west, they would have...

Thanks for waiting to the end-- Just kidding, there's still much more to come!

Re: Bootleg topic! Real vs fake

One thing I’ve always wondered about my dragon box z volume 7 set was that it is slightly taller than the rest. I’ve wondered if it could be a bootleg or if it was just how the 7th volume was. It's just how Vol. 7 was, apparently FUNi for some reason made it a little taller than the other six volum...

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

He's my other personal favorite of FUNi's voices for the narrator after Doc Morgan in Kai and onward, as being the two who have come closest to capturing Joji Yanami's wise sage like delivery. This is the first of the VA's on the Texas cast's side of the franchise to pass on but he had a long and su...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

One can ship whatever characters they want together. That's the great thing about 2D characters and fictional contexts.

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Are there any notable differences between the single dvd version of “A Hero’s Legacy” and the version included with the season sets? I bought all the gt singles and I’m curious if FUNi applied their “special sauce” DNR to the special like the series. I'm not sure if the version in the green brick s...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I would gladly buy new BRs with the Japanese masters (if they don't have the censorship or green tint like the streaming versions, even more so), but we have to wait a bit for them to do so. Yeah I think you may be right. There is sort of a "lag time" for releasing older properties' material. My gu...

When I think of early Schemmel, I think of his "Oh no!" and "Now you will know the horror Frieza!!!". Sorry, but he was so awful and cringeworthy back then. You mean the "OHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" When Vegeta takes off before the Ginyu fight? That always gets a laugh out of me. It's when Vegeta gets ...

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: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Even with the Saga sets you still don't have the second opening, other three closing animations or next episode previews which the DB Dragon Box and corresponding single discs contain, so they are already not consistent with the Z Dragon Boxes or GT singles in that aspect. As far as Sagas vs Bricks...
