Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

His speaking voice is, well, fine, I guess. But the screaming is just pathetic. A far cry from Bin Shimada, who actually sounds scary , even in his speaking voice. Definitely someone you don't want to fuck with. I think this comparison sums it up pretty succinctly: Mignogna scream: https://www.youtu...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

As others have said, Japan still has different sensibilities to the West, so basically what we’re talking about is FUNimation and other regional dub studios taking it upon themselves to heavily edit said content as they see fit. That feels more 2002 than 2019. Besides, what we’re talking about is th...

Surely Vic's sins don't absolve everyone elses'. Would you be more outraged by their action if not contrasted with Vic's? I'm not blaming you, I genuinely think it's difficult to see both issues without the waters being muddied.

Re: I'm done with the dub UPDATE

It really is a good decision. My eyes were opened all the way back in the early 2000's when I read online about how much the dub had changed things from the original. I also downloaded some low quality MPEG's of the Japanese version with the different music and dialogue--it endlessly intrigued me an...

Re: Vic Mignogna

The fact that Vic is gone, and now Huber is accusing Sabat of casting couch shenanigans, really puts the future of the meta-series of Dragon Ball in the states in an awkward position. How can they continue to move forward voicing the series and games with all of these accusations and drama going on?...

Re: Is the Budokai/Budokai Tenkaichi games bad?

No. The first two Budokai games the first Tenkaichi might be "bad" by today's standard but they were good for what they were and were pretty much the best they had at the time. I can still play B3/IW, BT2, and BT3 and have a good time with others. I thought at the time back in 2005, the first Tenka...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

So you're saying that Dragon Ball is a franchise that does cater and should cater exclusively to straight cis people? I don’t think it belongs (necessarily) in Dragon Ball. I don’t see how this series, of all things, “caters exclusively to straight cis people”... or to much of anyone for that matte...

Re: If a woman were to voice Goku in English, who should it be?

I can’t imagine there’s any other woman on Earth that could pull it off, let alone in English; Nozawa is truly a one-off and Toriyama had an amazing instinct in imagining her as his voice. He cast her as Goku as a kid; she could’ve easily done well there but sucked as the adult version but she naile...

Re: So Vic Mignogna is going to Super World Con this weekend. Should I get my Broly Funko Pop signed or not?

Never understood the cult-like admiration of dub actors. They’re hired guns to fulfill the objective of hearing a foreign character speak English (and, in this case, not particularly well). Lemme get Bin Shimada’s signature and then we’re talking. :P

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Being asexual and being capable of having sex are not mutually exclusive. Chi Chi more than likely convinced him that sex was part and parcel for being married. Goku still has no interest in sex or women (or men obviously) ergo he’s asexual no matter how you want to spin it. That’s an interesting p...

Re: The Prejudice Against Digital Animation 2:The evolution.

It seems like with digital animation, there’s a lot of potential for laziness due to potential shortcuts involved. However, if it isn’t used as a crutch and as much love is put into it as necessary, it can look as good or better than traditional, in my view. A lot of what I saw in early Super animat...

Re: "Call Me Kakarot" Scene Explained! | Dragon Ball Super: Broly

"My name is Son Goku, and also... Kakarot" - That is the real line in the original japanese. No "Call me Kakarot" thing is there. Pretty much this. FUNimation still can’t help themselves by embellishing perfectly serviceable dialogue. Given that, there’s really nothing to read into it in the meta.

In short? I don't think so, no. It isn't necessarily dub-hate, either... because I'm inclined to think no one in any language could touch her. It does make me nervous, once she is unable to continue voicing the character, who might take her place. I've more or less taken on board that the true, unad...

Does anyone know who will replace Mignogna as Broly's English voice? Whoever does it may have some serious shoes to fill IMO. I have to disagree vehemently .
