Re: Amazon JP and the super manga

Yeah, having the same issue. I haven't checked to see if it's a minimum-dollar-amount issue, because I ran into that for a month or two with V-Jump sometime last year before they relented on that and made it just ship normally. It could also just be the regular Japan mail stipulations hitting them ...

Amazon JP and the super manga

Anyone not able to pre-order the latest vol. from Yahoo Japan? It says it can't ship overseas. Didn't have this problem before, or with other items now.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I don't argue that minority actors can't play, say, White actors. That's punching up if anything. I think it is concerning when you're casting Phil LaMarr as Samurai Jack, though, unless I'm missing something about the character and performer here. I know as a trans person I would be upset if a cis...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Manga sales, compared to the anime

I'd be interested to compare this to the U.S statistics. Dragon Ball must be popular enough that VIZ still holds the license/even translates it but out in the wild I have never seen anyone talk about the Manga. The Anime on the other hand.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

Did not know this about Peter Kelamis and wonder what it was all about. This is a whole other topic, but the nudity in Dragon Ball is one of my favorite things about the series and plays an important role in my view, so that's interesting. (Also odd that the actor who seemed to "get" Goku the most ...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

So, I guess I’ll ask this again, should it be considered acceptable for non-Japanese/non-Asian people to voice anime characters? It kind of seems like if you want to commit to giving more roles to people of color, then you can’t really have white people voicing anime characters, unless the characte...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

By the way, what’s the stance on men voicing women? I agree with the post above (forgot about him!) Speaking of! G-kids got an actress and transgender activist for the role and it's overall been received pretty well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwLJjn7iChw Kudos to Gkids I'm not big in this cir...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I couldn't care less if it's not a black or an Asian actor/actress doing the voices for Asian or black characters if they're done well. I mean, Monica Rial and Chris Sabat voiced African-Americans in a show I'm not remembering at the moment and they worked well. Samurai Jack is voiced by Phil LaMar...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

How exactly do different ethnic groups sound different if assuming that they already speak fluent, American-sounding English? The thought that we should have minority-specific voices for characters is a bit of a racial stereotype in the first place, no? I'd say it's probably a bad thing if tons of ...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I think this is a great step to take. But Dragon Ball is fine...SANS THAT HORRIBLE KILLA THING. In fact asking a black person to do Mr Popo is an insult. True, I think popo can actually be played by anyone. But characters like Chici, tien, Roshi etc. Should they be recast, either out of good faith ...

Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/26/entertainment/simpsons-voices-trnd/index.html I know it's happening to quite a few shows. I feel this is an interesting topic in regards to anime and the lack of Asian voice actors for mostly Asian characters. Do you think this will change the anime, if not Dragon Ball...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

Jeez louise, these updates never end. I just got an offer from a voice actress/anime fan who got her Harmony Gold tape at an anime con between 1997 and 2004, and offered to sent it to me for $10 since she doesn't have a VCR. I took her up and she's in the process of shipping the tape to my address....

I thought in in-hourse dub was bad and a downgrade from the Saiyan/Namek saga. But it was new episodes and not only did I not have access to the Japanese version outside a few clips shared on sites of old

Sorry for bump, but bumped into this youtube video recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob2BGwjaU1k It appears to be a video showing off a Latino Spanish version of the 30th Anniversary Blu-ray sets.
