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

I just LOVE how much song and dance is made about Demon Slayer's quality yet no actual demonstration of it is made? What does it do better than Dragon Ball? Does it use its characters better? Better pacing? Better World Building? No, its just "Better Quality" as if that is an objective thing.

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

Prior to Super? And under which conditions would you pay. GO WILD! Like Including the Ocean cast! (Wink Wink Robo). Its a fully faithful hypothetical redub though. THAT is the one thing you cant change. And please, no "That would never happen" NO! They'd still probably cater to dub fans, unless the...

Re: Dragon Ball Edited 2001 Funimation Dub

Such as? Apparently for the TVY7 rating, men/boys in underwear or bare butts= funny. Women in underwear= sexy. A little too sexy as a brief bit of Lunch in her panties was cut and the Namu/Ranfan fight is cut heavily. That’s not even a double standard. Toei deliberately played Ranfan stripping to h...

THAT POST WAS AWESOME. I love it.

Sadly by Kai I think much of that has been extinguished from poor Mr Yanami. I love him. But I when I heard him as soon as Freeza Kai I feared he would die at the end of every line.

Then there is no equivalent of episode 1-54 I think. Its just a bunch of nothing until Funimation's in house takes over then.

Re: Elements of DB that look dated

Yeah, yikes. Mister Popo and General Blue need to be completely redone in new productions. Master Roshi – the whole “dirty old pervert” thing is a little more uncomfortable in current times (though I do enjoy that joke and feel it needs to be done well) It was uncomfortable back then, too. The chan...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Nuthing lol.

But it does show that Sailor Moon is much like DB in many ways. Down to having a flawed, divise yet still much loved first dub and a more updated one for better or worse.

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Actually, a book has been written, by the people who worked on the classic dub and some of the stuff Planetnamek has said is indeed true. He probably heard it from that book and not SMUncensored. The original DiC/Cloverway English dub of Sailor Moon is the only English anime dub with an entire book ...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

I think the Viz dub is good. I like it. And its not just nostalgia (I didnt grow up with an English dub) or hate of the DiC dub. I love the DiC dub.

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

I think I might have figured out why Viz didnt work. Maybe its because there is no emotion in the Japanese version of that particular scene. The DiC dub just wasnt afraid of taking liberties. How about comparing scenes that were censored or botched by the DiC dub? Like The Sailor Deaths? Or Koan/Cat...

Here you can rant about whatever you feel wasnt exploited to its fullest potential when it comes to Dragon Ball...but OUT OF UNIVERSE.
