How does that work exactly. Couldn't those people making the live action Saiyan saga movie say it's an homage?

Re: English-Filipino dub information?

I'm almost positive all of DBZ was NOT dubbed in English in the Philippines. At some point they switched from the English language to the Tagalog language.

The entire Buu saga or maybe the Garlic Junior saga.

And bring about his early death. :lol:
It's for the greater good. I would gladly sacrifice ten years of Akira Toriyama's life for another quality saga or two. :mrgreen:

Re: If you had free reign over a DB reboot

I would just redub the series with whoever was in charge of the dub for the first three movies. I would also make Akira Toriyama rewrite Dragon Ball GT.

No live action, it just doesn't translate well.

Re: How is Seyun (Saiyan) pronounciation wrong?

Would you say that the Japanese pronunciation of 'dragonball' is incorrect then? The Japanese pronunciation of "Dragon Ball" is easier for Japanese speakers to say. Likewise, the dub prounciation of "Saiyan" is easier for English speakers to say without foreknowledge of the series Yep, SAY-un flows...

It's an opinion? Not sure why I need to qualify it. An opinion does need to be qualified. Otherwise it's not an opinion . It's a reaction . I think you need to look up the definition of opinion, mate. It's a personal view, I don't need to qualify it anymore than I need to qualify the statement 'I l...

Re: How is Seyun (Saiyan) pronounciation wrong?

because without FUNimation baggage, that's a pretty obvious go-to first pronunciation. Is it? The 'AI' in America isn't automatically associated with a long I sound as far as I am aware. I don't see the word 'main' and think 'mine.' I'm certainly not saying that us correctly-pronouncing-"Saiyan" gr...

Would you say that the Japanese pronunciation of 'dragonball' is incorrect then? No, because they come from english words. I think I agree with you. Just like you wouldn't say a Japanese person is 'incorrect' the way they pronounce the word dragonball, you wouldn't say an English-speaking person is...

lol, I can't help but laugh at people trying to make objective right/wrong statements about how to pronounce things. But there are objective right/wrong answers in this case. I think the objectivity in this instance would be to say, 'Saiyan is pronounced THIS way in Japanese, objectively.' But you ...

Is there any particular reason you're beginning to act antagonistic about this? I think you are reading antagonism where there is none. Disagreeing and arguing my point of view is not antagonistic. The Japanese phonetic system doesn't have the capacity to accurately reproduce the words "dragon" and...

Re: How is Seyun (Saiyan) pronounciation wrong?

Do you also think "Kay-o-ken" sounds better than Kaioken? Because even FUNimation went out of their way to fix that one. Yes, I like Kay-o-ken better than Kaioken. But for the record Kame-hame-ha sounds better in the Japanese version, the dub used to make it sound like Kameyamaya. I'm not sure wher...

Re: How is Seyun (Saiyan) pronounciation wrong?

SAY-UN sounds about ten times better than SYE-AN so this is one case where I'm glad the dub changed it. It's an improvement over the original.

Re: A Question for dub fans.

I flip flop. I've always found it dumb the way the Dragon Ball community would pick and choose what they leave untranslated and what they translate. I never understood why it was so popular to call Muten Roshi 'Kame Sennin' instead of 'Turtle Hermit' for example. Mr. Satan is better than Hercule tho...

Re: Did Daisuke Gori take on too many roles?

It's a cute idea -- a voice actor of any nationality turning down work he auditioned for and was given. I hate to harp on the topic but he chose to audition for those roles. He didn't have to. It's very sad that he killed himself over that, but at some point you have to realize doing too much for a...
