Re: DBZ music used in UK food advert

Kikuchi isn't given a songwriting credit on the track which is unusual. Normally, when a musician takes a sample and uses it in a very prominent manner, the original artist is credited.

Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

So as we all know by now, Goku was never portrayed correctly in the original Funimation version. They took a character that was very selfish and cared only about fighting, and turned him into an altruistic superhero that only wants to help people and do good for the world. There is a huge difference...

Oh jeez, I knew he sounded off during Yashahime, I didn't think it was that serious though.
His voice change in Yashaime might have had nothing to do with his passing. He was pushing 50, his voice isn't going to sound the same as it did 10 years ago.

Re: Myth - "Funimation didn't acquire film masters of DBZ until 2008"

This is the common understanding of Funimation's video masters: In the '90s, Toei supplied Funimation with Digital Betacam transfers of film prints of the first ~20 episodes of DB, as well as the three original movies, for use in their 1995 dub with BLT. They were later given similar copies of DBZ ...

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

Goku doesn't have long absences in the manga, which is the official canon. It was only a thing in the anime which was loaded with filler. The anime filler took Goku's absences and magnified it big time.

Re: What is the difference between Toriyama's Dragon Ball, and what other people come up with?

I'm one of the few people in this community that thinks the Akira-less Dragon Ball GT is better than Dragon Ball Super, which I think is a pile of shit. So in that case, what "other people" came up with was better!

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

This is my simple take. Most of the Faulconer music sounds great on it's own, away from DBZ, as standalone music. However, when it's placed in DBZ as an actual soundtrack to the series, it's fucking awful. I'll take this song for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flJbl2Ebzkc I really like it ...

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

Pretty sure they picked like a dozen cues and just threw darts. As for Kai tracks being reused in other shows, I think that's entirely possible. At one point, the Z score used a track from the 1995 Ocean dub pitch for Magic Knight Rayearth , and a variety of other such odd intermixes of shows' scor...

Yes , I find the Season 3 english dub on the remastered sets with the Japanese music and the re-dubbed parts to be passable. And just to be clear I do agree with you that restoring the Japanese music did go a long way in making the dub more listenable. It’s still really bad but the power of Kikuchi...

There was NOTHING objectionable about the way that Masenko expressed his viewpoint. You tagged him as "arrogant and obnoxious", when all he did was disagree with you point by point. He was sarcastic and snarky about it, yes: but the sarcasm was very clearly directed squarely at the dub itself. At N...

Take a deep breath Kunzait and calm down man. He's talking about the production value of a children's cartoon show. From 20 years ago.

Arrogant and obnoxious posts such as yours is why our community gets such a bad rep. Good grief. There's nothing wrong whatsoever with disliking a particular item within the fandom but at least carry yourself with a bit of class and respect when you express your opinion.

the 1999-2003 in house Z dub (uncut or edited) is an awful, inaccurate and heavily altered "reversioned" interpretation of the series in both script and dialogue that is not a good adaptation in any meaningful way toward the original version. Slightly less so but still far from is the '07 Orange Br...
