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...

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

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...

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

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...

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

You're free to give up hope or do anything else you want. The fact is, the dub is the closest it's ever been to actually being released. 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"? Light cursing shouldn't be that big of an issue. The channel isn't supposed to be exclusively aimed ...

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 ...

Re: Harmony Gold is still active so couldn't they make a deal with FUNimation?

This dub was produced 30 years ago and Harmony Gold is now primarily a real estate company. I doubt they've got a lot to offer.

Re: Why did the Blue Water and Big Green dubs keep the original score?

As far as AB supposedly being behind these dubs, this is another case of confusion, like the Westwood dub. They oversaw the distribution and release of these in the UK and the Netherlands, yes (along with Warner Vision International), but they weren't behind the dub. Fans at the time inquired for i...

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...

We've gotten a few indications of this, but it once again leads me to believe To...

The Adult Swim programming is staying with Corus. They wouldn't be putting up billboards or teasing bumpers if they were going to lose it to someone else. YTV has also slowly started to air anime again. The channel is home to Bakugan Battle Planet reruns and brought back Pokemon for a special event...

As a kid I remember channels getting minimal advertising and then just showing up. But tbh, maybe they just get the license on April 1st and still have a lot of work to get done?

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

The fact that we're a month away from launch and Wow hasn't even issued a press release is concerning. They haven't even properly announced the channel's name or initial marquee lineup. Gives me the "afterthought" vibe.
