Re: Preserving the Nicktoons Airings of DB Material

The DB Wiki is shit. It has been shit for a long time now. At various points it made up techniques IIRC. They're actually right about this. Each time Cartoon Network attempted to air that episode, they ran an earlier one instead. I'm not really sure the TV version would be any different than what y...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

It's funny people are bringing up Viz and Sailor Moon. In the early part of the 2010s, a handful of Funimation employees moved to Viz's anime department. This coincided with Sailor Moon. It also marked the point when Viz began cutting back on their budgets for dubs. Outside of Boruto (which is grand...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

It's been creatively bankrupt for years. Some could argue it always has been. The powers that be are so strapped for story threads they recycle earlier villains and arcs like it's something to be proud of. We've gotten increasingly lazy transformations. Super takes place during a timespan that was o...

Re: Looks like Netflix picked up DBZ for the Netherlands (and other EU countries perhaps?)

On a more serious note there, probably highly unlikely we will see any alternate dubs on Netflix, they will more than likely just go for whatever version of the series is the most cheap, convenient and easy to license, that being Funimation's remastered dub of Dragon Ball Z. This might be the most ...

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

Regarding those CRTC approval listings, those are just bizarre, and nonsensical. Episodes 220-276 aired in Canada between September 2002 and March 2003, so it's completely baffling that there wouldn't have been an entry until 2005. By that time, the episodes were still being shown in reruns on YTV,...

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

This is pretty awesome! I think it's fair to assume that this will be the edited dub that airs in Africa and Australia. I wonder if any of our UK friends on the forum would be up to recording it so we can finally have the edited version archived. I'm pretty sure there are people archiving the Austr...

Portugal, a country of 10 million people, always watch foreign movies/tv shows with subtitles, and they seem to be perfectly capable to focus on what they're watching along with the text, so I fail to see why most of the English-speaking population would have a hard time doing that. It's actually r...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Broly Box Office Thread

Why does China get the movie so late? With those kinds of box office predictions, you'd think they would've released the movie there way earlier. There's a lot of bureaucracy you have to go through to get a foreign film released in China. Hollywood struggles and that's a far wealthier industry than...

I found out recently that Imports Dragon is Bandai's Canadian toy distributor. If we're ever in need of another company to pursue, they might be someone worth looking into. It seems they've initiated (paid for?) a number of TV deals up here, from things like Robocar Poli, Shopkins, and Dino Froze to...

Nothing is guaranteed, but the fact that Wow pushed back their channel launch specifically because they wanted more time to cement programming partnerships, does r...

'90s live-action U.S. series pilot?

Some of you guys may know about the U.S. live-action Sailor Moon pilots . Fewer probably know about the Saint Seiya pitch produced by the same company. It turns out Renaissance-Atlantic Films had filed a U.S. trademark for Dragon Ball in 1994. If you go through their history at the USPTO, you'll not...

Re: Looks like Netflix picked up DBZ for the Netherlands (and other EU countries perhaps?)

I'm not sure there are rights issues preventing Evangelion's dub from being re-released. I say that because the Netflix release is getting new dubs in nearly every major language. This includes Spanish, where the show has already been dubbed multiple times. It's hard to believe they're all covered i...

https://youtu.be/xOWs-bqTSP4?t=1685 Brian confirming the use of swear words in the Ocean Dub of Kai. Could this be problematic for Wow? That's interesting. Didn't the Nicktoons broadcast use "HFIL"?

Re: The Trimark (BLT) Dub of Dragon Ball

I find the idea that this dub was produced as a way to sabotage original Dragon Ball silly. This wouldn't have landed a national Canadian TV deal on YTV, merch from Bandai America and a home video release if it was just a legal formality. Hm, interesting interview. Thanks! I don't know how Fukunaga ...

As far as AB supposedly being behind these dubs, this is another case of confusion, like the Westwood dub.

Re: TeamFourStar and Fair Use

Using footage from the actual show doesn't violate fair use. That's why the term "Fair use" even exists. You are using the "actual footage" in a fair fashion. The requirements are that it is transformative in nature and not a market substitute for the original work . Both of those are satisfied. Mo...
