Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

For starters, for those who've seen episode 108, just listen to the actors themselves. It's clear that some of them are a little "rusty" at playing the characters, particularly Drummond and McNeil. They don't sound quite like they did when they had previously left off at episode 53 a few years earl...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I personally don't think a broadcast of the Broly movie is any indication for the future of the Kai dub. It's just an airing of a new-ish movie which happens all the time. At most I think they might pay attention to the ratings to see if there's a major spike of interest from viewers but even then t...

Very surprised by Brian's answer there regarding censorship, he seems more confident about it this time too, not like he was in his interview with Geekdom a while back - there he seemed more hesitant to speak about the subject. I'm still a little doubtful we'll actually hear them saying Hell in the ...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

"Premiered in Europe" You make it sound like it aired in every European country. Strange thing to nitpick. We all know the dub aired in English speaking parts of Europe and can infer what I meant here. I think you don't know or forgot that the Ocean dub was also aired in Netherlands with Dutch subt...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Actually it wasn’t Funimation who added those extra SFX to their dub. It was Faulconer Productions themselves who added them, as Scott Morgan pretty much confirmed himself in this reply to a post here. Only show that Funimation themselves added extra SFX to was OG Dragon Ball, and even then it was ...

Re: Do you believe Nadolny would’ve improved if she came back?

I think Nadolny was miscast as Gohan, her voice was just too raspy and gruff for the character. Her Kid Goku was passable but she's far from an ideal casting choice in my opinion. Saying she was the best Kid Goku in the English dub is faint praise because there wasn’t really a good Kid Goku in Engli...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I wasn't aware that Toei Europe wasn't around until 2004, so now I'm wondering who sent the tapes to the UK and what led to the switching off between the Ocean and Funimation dub for the Buu saga? Was it Canada and America, Toei in Japan, or even the AB Groupe somehow? AB were distributing it to th...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Before I start, I want to note something. I recently read an article on anime news network (I can't find the particular article now link now) that mentioned that it is not uncommon for Japanese production companies to request foreign distributors to send dubbed masters back to Japan. When they are ...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

It's a solid theory, but you're placing too much stock in AB Groupe's involvement. Apart from handling European distribution and providing video tracks for the final four episodes, AB Groupe really had nothing to do with the actual production of the dub in Vancouver. While it's certainly never been...

Re: So I watched an episode of the Westwood dub

Gohan only got like 2 lines that episode so hard to say but Henderson seemed a bit off to me. Like she was subtly trying to sound more like Nadolny but ugh why? Though I didn’t hear enough to make a fair judgment. Seems a bit of a weird criticism to make. She's doing her own Gohan voice but adjuste...

Minor nitpick but I wouldn't frame it that was rejected - he likely never auditioned for this as he seems to have quit acting long ago and moved into a different line of work.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

This is probably all crazy complicated but hopefully it is far simpler to get Ocean Kai out there. Mainly because I still suspect Toei did actually produce it themselves. But that is still unknown. I say simpler cause it then cuts out one more person to deal with. I think. Well, indeed. If Toei pro...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I think you're being just a little over-dramatic there... It's not about dubbing loyalty or anything like that; the problem is that MangaUK is pretty much purely an import company. They import Funimation releases, do it cheaply, and do very little else. RTD was an idea that was floated, but assumin...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

As Ocean Kai will almost certainly never get a home release the only financial loss the producers can face is from those living in Canada who don't stream or watch it live. The rest of us have no legal means of supporting it, so unless potential distributors (Eg MangaUK and Madman, but there would ...

I'm pretty sure that using your normal voice is less taxing than maintaining a gruff voice, but okay.

It might be easier to contact Scott. When I talked to Brian and Peter, Scott McNeil came up a few times during the conversation.

I doubt Manga UK had any inclination the new remasters were coming, hell, I wouldn't even say its likely Funimation knew until they were announced.

Re: Manga UK releasing DBZ Movie & TV-Specials Collection (Blu-ray/DVD)

As far as I'm concerned, these Manga UK releases are even more worthless than they were before. With Toei's own HD remasters out, you'd have to be a rather ignorant fan to still want these. MangaUK are most likely just trying to squeeze whatever they can out of these old masters before they're no lo...
