Re: Would you pay Funimation via Kickstarter for a redub of the full Dragon Ball media

In an ideal world I would gladly contribute to a faithful redub of the series (DB & Z and maybe a few movies too) provided it was helmed by knowledgable and passionate fans of the material who also happen to be talented professionals that know what they're doing. Unfortunately, we live in a world wh...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Veg(ito) effect

I think I made myself pretty clear. I didn't imply you said his name had anything to do with ducks, but it seems to be an unintentional oversight with your chosen spelling of the name, at least from my point of view, so I pointed it out. It still makes no sense. The logic behind "Burduck" is that t...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Veg(ito) effect

What are you talking about? I never said anything about Burduck's name having anything to do with ducks. I told an English speaker that that syllable should be pronounced like the English word "duck". You spelled it "Bardock" in your post, yet I doubt you're trying to imply his name has anything to...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Veg(ito) effect

My PERSONAL opinion would be that it makes the most sense to pronounce it "Bur-duck" - "bur" as in burdock and "duck" as in the animal. But that's just my personal opinion, and clearly not the one shared by the French translator, and I totally see where she's coming from too. Names derived from oth...

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

Not sure where this thread derailed to since but I do agree with the initial post. In fact, I think it extends beyond just story and writing and into other areas of the creative process such as animation, casting, music and dubbing. In my experience, it's all too common for people to be unable to pi...

Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

I wrote a post relating to this a long time ago but basically I would trash Super and use EOZ as a jumping-off point to essentially redo the GT era as a high budget movie that provides us with a final send-off for the series (similar to what Dark Side of Dimensions was for Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters).

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

Westwood Media was never a "sister studio" of any kind, this is misinformation that grew out of Westwood Media going defunct in the early internet days, and an unrelated "Westwood" recording studio existing in Vancouver. Well, first off I don't think anyone has the facts or sources to definitively ...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

Was it a project initiated partly by the original Ocean VAs, wanting another stab DBZ, perhaps with the intention of besting the ‘99 Funi dub? The Vancouver voice actors had little insider information on what was going on with post-Saban DBZ dub, aside from perhaps Terry Klassen (who, as far as I'm...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

I grew up with a mish-mash of dubs so there's a lot I dislike. Funimation/Saban/Pioneer Ocean Z dub: - Ian Corlett's Master Roshi. I just found it too whiny most of the time and actually preferred it when they cast Terry Klassen later on. - Don Brown's Elder Moori. It's more or less the same voice h...

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.

"Premiered in Europe" You make it sound like it aired in every European country. Strange thing to nitpick.

Actually it wasn’t Funimation who added those extra SFX to their dub.

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...

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?
