Re: Dragon Ball/Z/GT home releases moving forward

I am in the camp that the broadcast audio isn't make-or-break for me. Yeah, it would be nice, but it's just not that important to me. I doubt that Funimation would care enough to use it, but here's my question: would that forgive them? Would the fans value that over Funimation's treatment of the vid...

Re: Freeza Saga Son Gohan humming Makafushigi Adventure in French dub

I came across a similar Easter egg in the original Ocean Z dub where Bulma, Gohan, and Kurilin are on fake Namek in the ice cave amd Bulma is humming the original Ocean BLT (?) Dragon Ball theme (this one: https://youtu.be/BqcdFywCRks )

Re: If Pan, Bulla, and Uub were reimagined by Toriyama, would you want them to look/act differently?

Didn't Toriyama design all of them in GT?

I'd imagine that given opportunity to go past end-of-Z with Super, Toriyama might come up with something different for them now.

I mean, he does voice Goku, but... is he really that big of a star that nobody can put him in his place? Seriously, I wouldn't take that disrespect from anyone, especially someone who's not as big as they think they are.

Re: Has your opinion on Faulconer softened over time?

Nope; it actually got worse lol I Think that the replacement score aged terribly and a lot worse than how the Ocean dub BGM aged (original, not the Westwood one).

Though, compared to the GT and Ultimate Uncut replacement scores, Faulconer's is amazing.

Re: Dragon ball new Faulconer style music

Came across this one and it appealed to me and sort of fits with the theme of this thread:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzRf41NO3Qg

It's not that all Faulconer tracks were bad (this was one of my more favorite ones), but the synth sound hurt it. Plus... the whole replacement score thing.

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

Wasn't there a big-shot executive stringing fans along for months about supposed negotiations? I'm so fascinated by all of this, honestly. I'd love to see it come out, but I'm starting to wonder if this wasn't just some bizarre misunderstanding. At this point, Kai and the original DBZ are closer tog...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Ironically enough, I think that the attempt to "modernize" DBZ by throwing the Faulconer score in, actually had the opposite effect. Because it was synth, it sounds so old at this point. Whereas the original score, conducted with actual instruments (or at least it sounds like it was), sounds timeles...

Re: Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

I think it's an active step in bridging the gap between the Japanese version and the official English-speaking version (Funimation's). There was obviously always a divide between the two and I don't think that there was ever an intent to do that. I think this is Toei giving its "blessing," so to spe...

Just like actors play roles to avoid real jobs. And all those musicians who are in the studio for 6 hours a day to avoid getting a 9-5 scanning groceries. What is this argument?

The mere fact that a group of people got together to make a "parody" dub and has subsequently become so big that we're discussing them on a regular basis, and even the dub actors constantly get asked about them, shows their success. To those that say that TFS is overrated and all of that negative, t...

Re: Thoughts on a potential Netflix series.

They took a masterpiece in Death Note and made it... what it was. I have no faith in these live action projects. There's no way to do it without having an incredibly long series (you're not stuffing DB into a mini-series) with a ton of CG and having characters look stupid. I'm sorry, but all these w...
