Re: How DBZ on Cartoon Network worked? Please help explain

They actually did resume showing DBZ weekly on Toonami from like 2005 all the way until Toonami was cancelled in 2008. Bizarrely, I remember them showing the Ultimate Uncut episodes with minimal edits and then like midway through the Saiyan saga they switched to the Ocean Dub. By the time Toonami w...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

You know, I get most of the sentiments expressed in this thread. I only have one question... What's everyone's deal with the music?

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

A dark day for the series. I don't think anything has ever done as much damage to the integrity of this franchise as the Funi dub did. In retrospect i feel kind of sad about the people who grew up with this version of DBZ. It robbed so many new fans of a far more accurate representation of the show...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

"Season 3" was a perfect embodiment of everything that has ever been wrong with Dragon Ball's treatment in the west. The cast that everyone had grown to love, thrown aside for convenience and penny pinching over paying people for voice-destroying screams, the music and voices replaced with cheap, r...

Re: You watched DBZ before DB and certain characters didn't make sense

In regards to your specific examples, there certainly were things to piece together, like who Karin was and why he lived in this tower that was really high in the air but below this other floating structure. The nature of Kami and Piccolo would be danced around a few times in the first two seasons ...

Re: What parts of the franchise evoke nostalgia for you?

For me in particular it would be the Trunks vs Cyborg Freeza/Android introduction episodes, seeing as those were literally the first bits of DBZ i remember watching on Toonami when i was six years old. Others of particular note were the dubs of Z movies 1-3 which was all i saw from the Ocean cast er...

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

No they shouldn't, we're talking about series that are over to just over thirty years old now. They should remain as they are even if some things presented in them (General Blue.etc) don't necessarily align with modern views on the same topics because retroactively censoring them does nothing, and w...

Re: Do you enjoy Complaining about/Discussing/Watching edited versions of DB?

I've got some old recorded episodes of Ocean and FUNi in house dubbed DBZ from Toonami way back in the day but rarely ever do i go back to watching them but only once in a great while. Given that the original uncut version is more than readily available and at my fingertips, both by way of the origi...

They definitely could be better, namely that the colours aren't even trying to be authentic, in particular the greens.

Makes me surprised he would be involved with a series like Dragonball, which includes all kinds of magic, demons, and pagan gods...

Seems like Huber is kind of a nut himself. When he used to run a Catholic school, he'd tell his students to not read Harry Potter books because demons would possess them. He also thinks the Earth is flat. Good voice actor, but a nut. OMG, he actually believes something that was thought to be factua...

I know it did but you guys are just going from fear. This is not the same company. It makes no sense they'd do the same. Just fear would make assume so. A lot of what Funimation did and does makes no sense either. Given the history of Dragon Ball home and streaming releases (which now includes Toei...

Well, the poll ended with 65% in favor of 4:3. Let's see what happens now. It comes out as 16:9 anyway. Which is exactly what happened when FUNi released the DBZ Season BD's, and as we know they put out a very similar poll to the one Selecta Vision did here many months prior to the release and appa...
