Re: Is anyone still holding out for a new HD remaster from TOEI?

If Toei can't even bother doing 17 movies correctly, I highly doubt they will do 508 episodes properly. If they do a release at all, it will just be upscaled DNR'ed footage with, at best, spit polished optical audio. As in something like Selecta Vision's Blu-ray sets of OG DB from a year or so ago?...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Nadolny or Clinkenbeard’s voices would be absolutely jarring coming out of Goku’s adult self. So true, they just can't pull off what Nozawa has done so masterfully for 30+ years. There's really no female VA around here anywhere who could possibly do that same sort of thing because Goku's voice in J...

Re: Early Buu Saga (Great Saiyaman)...A High Point in Popularity?

It's a decent little story to kick off the Buu arc before things really get started, and given this is the biggest time skip (by two years more) in the entire series manga and anime wise after the five year period going from the end of Dragon Ball with Goku's victory over Piccolo Jr. at the 23rd Bud...

Re: The FULL version of the infamous DBZ French opening

It seems like most of the various European and even some English dubs back in the day were sourced from the French dubs of DB and DBZ courtesy of AB Groupe to some degree, with even using their own respective light sounding takes on the opening and closing. Wow, they really made it seem more kiddy c...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 55 - DBZ 80-84 (CURRENT WEEK)

To be honest, I can get behind the idea of censoring Popo, but just painting him blue didn't fix it at all, and to be honest, I don't think it's actually possible to remove the racism of Popo's design from Dragon Ball using traditional censorship tools. You'd need to do some extensive work that wou...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 55 - DBZ 80-84 (CURRENT WEEK)

I feel of the two TV versions of Kai that Nicktoons (themselves the edits that the currently unreleased Ocean version apparently use video wise) is definitely superior when compared to the Toonzai/CW4Kids/Vortexx version, whereas the latter went overboard to the extreme due to CW's S&P being even mo...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

I wouldn't say Newstone sounded like a smoker at all. Newstone was an infinitely better actress than young so I wouldn't lump them together. The only thing they have in common is they weren't right for Freeza. Yeah, and listening to Newstone's Freeza again it doesn't really sound sound like that. Y...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Pauline Newstone and Linda Young were both definitely miscast, they gave Freeza "chain smoker grandma" type voices that just didn't fit the character at all. Recasting the role with Chris Ayres in Kai was a great decision because he definitely captures the essence of Nakao's take of Freeza as a sad...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Pretty sure Funimation removed any additional sfx that wasn’t used in the Japanese version. Not sure if that was a mistake like using the work print version of the Faulconer track mix being used or an attempt to be “closer to the Japanese version” without having to do anything. The voice filters we...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Yeah. The YTV edit used the same, slightly-before-the-final-touches version of the music that the Orange Bricks used. I believe the reason for this discrepancy is that the music editors at Funi tended to make a few last-minute changes during the process of final mixing. So, these last changes weren...

Interesting. Not just the alternate line. In the original dub when Krillin says r-right in response to Dende there’s some audience insulting “We just made a funny kids laugh!” music beat that plays. In the YTV its just normal music (which I think also happens in the remastered dub) Yeah. The YTV ed...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

I'm really surprised that Dende's "piss off" line somehow slipped past the censors in the edited version, especially given how much the dub was avoiding more stronger words like the plague at the time.

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

Super is a mixed bag for sure in terms of the most recent DB revival run, even moreso than GT already was.

Holy crap, i can't believe that it's really been almost just over a decade since Kai debuted over here on home video and TV. Especially seeing as it was the first new Dragon Ball related content i had seen in a while and what reignited my interest in the series.

Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

Goku never kissing in the mouth in DBS is not a contradiction, since we are never shown in the entire Dragon Ball that Goku has ever kissed in the mouth before. Not a straight up contradiction but it seems somehow unlikely Chi Chi could convince Goku to have intercourse with her at least twice and ...
