Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

For me, I can see Toei's involvement being one of two things: Repackage : If it's a repackage of the Blu Bricks, then Toei is there mainly for work on the included book, and to make it seem like they're more involved with the US side of the celebrations. Would you be able to call them the Season Bl...

Re: Bruce Faulconer returning to compose the score for DBS?

I can fill in one small detail which is that at that point in time Faulconer Productions was handling the mix of the show as well as the music, so it's possible they had the final mix (dialogue + sfx + music) but not the separate music stem for that episode. I believe Funimation started doing their...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

My issue with statements like this is that it is demonstrably untrue that the Faulconer score has very many (if any) cues that work for more emotionally driven scenes, whereas Kikuchi's score is RIFE with cues that are tailored to work in sad/melancholy, or wistful, or hopeful scenes etc. As far as...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

That's not me bringing up YouTube comments. It was a rhetorical question. Sorry if that wasn't clear, but I have no intention then or now to ever bring up a bunch of YouTube comments. Okay, like I said, my bad for misinterpreting. How valid these arguments are can only be judged on a case-by-case b...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

Why does anyone respond to anything on a discussion forum? But it's not merely a response, you're having a whole discussion.

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

And what I'm saying is that without any shred of evidence to support your claims, these generalizations are rather weak. Fine. We don't have quantitative evidence or peer reviewed studies. Now what? If your point is ultimately that we're making arbitrary assertions that can just be dismissed becaus...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

But the argument isn’t “people only like the Faulconer score because of nostalgia” musical taste is subjective. I, for the most part can’t stand the Faulconer score and Perfect Cell’s theme in particular theme causes me physic pain in my ears but I think the Super Buu theme is fire. Someone else mi...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

But how can you jump from that to the argument of people liking the score mainly out of nostalgia? I didn't, but even if I did, it's not a leap. If your view of the series is built on a lot of misconceptions and have little to no interest in the original and still insist the dub score and dialog an...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

You're conflating critical and financial success. I'm not conflating the two. I'm simply saying GT was successful and it has its fans. How many fans, we don't really know. This right here is such a classic example of the nostalgia argument in all its ridiculous glory. No, it's just an acknowledgeme...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

Menza score for DBZ since that's the series in question. GT was successful ratings wise, but it's never been loved. It was coming right off of Z's tale, so it stands to reason it would be a success ratings wise. It doesn't need to be as loved as DB or Z to still have a significant amount of fans. A...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

If you are going say I claimed things like the only reason people prefer the dub is due to nostalgia, then this isn't worth it. That's not what I'm claiming. It's definitely a reason, though. I know you didn't say it's the only reason. You did say that it was the main reason though. Check your post...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

The nostalgia argument is so bizarre. And instead of making the claim and then actually trying to support it with evidence, there's this strange tactic being used of "It's definitely nostalgia, now you need to prove that it's not". That's not how burden of proof works. You make the claim, you provid...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

Eh not really I just think it's the one most people grew up watching , it's the og version . I think it gets disrespected too often . The music sets the tone very well and Goku is more of a badass in spots. Well it's what most people in the US may have grown up watching. Remember, it's a Japanese s...

Yeah I'm sure that if it were faithful, it would work just fine, just like it did in countries that went with the accurate script + original music route.

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

I don't care if someone likes the score on its own. It has some nice moments, but it doesn't fit the story. Casual viewers (which I'm guessing makes up the bulk of even DBZ's US audience) don't know and that's fine, but it's due to FUNi's changes. Preference is subjective but the original vision fo...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

And it's not the love of the score I'm calling into question, it's the idea that people truly believe the Faulconer score is objectively the better fit for DBZ. I've had discussions on this forum with people who have said so and when you get down to the bottom of it, it's mostly due to misconceptio...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

A lot of people are very bad at introspection. For example, if one makes a generalization that the love of the score is mainly due to nostalgia, yet is unable to actually provide a shred of evidence to back up such a claim, then this indicates that this person is only seeing what he or she wants to ...

Re: Does Faulconer Prod. SSJ3 Theme miss the intention?

We know nowadays nothing scary was going to happen, but in both the introduction of SSj and SSj2, Goku and Gohan struggled to control the form and keep their Saiyan instincts in check upon first awakening. And that there is one of the key differences between SSJ3 and the rest. The previous two were...

Re: Does Faulconer Prod. SSJ3 Theme miss the intention?

I'd say the Kikuchi approach works for the first Super Saiyan transformation more than the Faulconer one does. Because at that point, it really is a kind of a scary thing that Goku is going through. But by the point where we're at the 3rd transformation, and Goku is actually going through and naming...
