Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

Yeah, new music was definitely composed for Kai as Anitunes have had that listed on their website for years but the thing with the Ocean kids dubs is that they occasionally rely on library music for various other projects so the Kai music could have been reused for other things by now, not by Anitun...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Funimation or Toei did suppress the Ocean Kai dub for the UK. It matches what Subzero Ice said years ago that "Toei Animation ONLY gave them the option of the Funimation dub of Kai". This was despite Kirby Morrow describing their version of Kai as being "for releas...

Except, that’s not accurate.

All he actually did was convince Barry Watson they didn’t need to look past the Denton ...

I'll give you the stuff about Sean and the other Goku's, but you're being way too cynical with Chris Sabat. He's a guy who genuinely cares about the fans. Him getting Drummond to do Copy Vegeta just to boost ratings for 3 episodes? I'm not convinced. He posted on twitter at the time referring to Dr...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

I don't see why it can't be added for streaming. It honestly could potentially not cost them anything (no merchandise production costs). ... The owner(s) themselves could just put it out there on YouTube or their own website, for example, for free (to them) and require a payment per episode. The po...

Re: Can we talk about the Funimation Movie Soundtracks?

The idea of putting licensed music in an anime movie isn't new or necessarily bad by itself but the biggest problem with Funi's use of music in these movies is that the placement is clumsy and amateur 90% of the time and just feels slapped on with very little thought or creative intent behind it.

Re: Kirby Morrow, Third Canadian Voice of Goku, Passes Away

This is really tragic news, he was a big part of my childhood. Sadly not too many US DB fans will appreciate the work he did as it was only broadcast in the UK, Netherlands and Canada but I for one am devastated.

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...

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?

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...

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...
