Re: Serious Dragon Ball Questions For Fans About The Voice of Goku

If for whatever the reason the Voice of goku you personally enjoyed the most regardless of whichever voice actor it may be. Was no longer voicing the role of goku anymore for the newest materials that are to come from now on, Like for the Return of the Super anime or any new movies or video games. ...

Re: Goku's alien origin revealed sooner?

In what context was the word used? "Alien" could simply be used as a synonym for "intruder" in this case as, not being a member of the Red Ribbon Army, he is an alien to one of their installations. An American, for example, is an "alien" in Japan and vice versa. It's obvious from the start, though, ...

Re: FUNimation and their use of the term "Season"

It's nothing new how FUNimation misuses the term "Season" for products with 40 episodes in which case it should be "Volume", "Box", "Collection" or even "Part". While, yes, it is inaccurate when taking the original Japanese distribution into account, FUNimation can really label a collection of epis...

Re: Does anyone ever actually watch the Z dub with the Kikuchi score?

Yes, whenever I watch the Z dub it will always be with the Kikuchi score. I have never liked the Faulconer score so when the orange sets and the Dragon Boxes were released with the option, it was easy to watch the dub with the original score. One thing I have always hated about the Faulconer score w...

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

Exactly. If FUNimation was that dim then they would be pronouncing Freeza as they spell it Frieza to be "Fry-za" (even the guys at DBZ Abridged pointed it out) but they don't really do that, though. That makes literally no sense as the English language does not work that way. Besides, how does Vege...

Okay guys, I've got a question : Is the channel that is gonna acquire Kai present in all the cable and satellite providers in Canada?

Re: Do fans of the English dub use the SSJ term?

I don't particularly care for the abbreviation, either "SSJ" or "SS" so I will typically use "Super Saiyan" (and, yes, I prefer the "Sigh-an" pronunciation). I believe I developed a distaste for most abbreviations because no matter what type of social platform you go to, people always assume that ev...

Re: Replacing Goku's VA?

With Hiromi Tsuru passing away recently, replacing her (and other characters who have been given new VAs) isn't much a big deal since Bulma was mostly a supporting character. But what if something were to happen to Masako Nozawa? She is in her 80s after all (I don't know how she's capable of still ...

Re: Best way to back up my DVDs?

My recommendation is to check out DVD Fab. You can completely backup the DVDs to a hard drive while retaining the menus and all functionality while also eliminating stuff like the FBI warning screens or the trailers they typically force you to watch at the beginning. It can be an expensive product, ...

Re: Random subtitle question, Vegeta calls Kakarot "Goku"?

Also I notice No. 20 sometimes says "energy" when referring to draining people but I'm assuming that's a correct translation and not supposed to say "ki" right? In the audio, does 20 say "ki" or "genki"? From my very limited understanding, "genki" essentially translates to "energy" and I imagine if...

Re: Who could be Masako Nozawa’s successor?

Akira Toriyama chose a woman for the role. It must be one. I don't really think that means adult Goku must be voiced by a woman. The best actor who best captures the essence of Goku, be it a woman or a man, should be chosen. As displayed when Funimation took the dub in house, trying to imitate the ...

Whose "they" if you mean Japan they love Nozawa and couldn't see anyone else as the character until she passes away, most funi dub fans disliked her voice even in original Z when she was in her 50's they never liked her voice for adult Goku. The people who prefer the Funimation dub. These are the s...

Re: Anyone watching show despite not liking Goku anymore?

Yeah, I kinda feel the same way.

Re: Things that grind your gears

Honestly, Super Saiyan. It was good the first time it happened with Goku but, ever since then, it's gone beyond ridiculous with the whole "enemy too strong? no problem, we'll just invent a new level of Super Saiyan" and when the over the top hair gets played out, they go for weird colours instead.

Re: When did the Super Saiyan stop becoming sacred for you?

I think it was when things got ridiculous with multiple levels of Super Saiyan that it just became a crutch to defeat the next villain. Can't defeat them as we are now? We'll just ascend to a new level of Super Saiyan and everything will be okay!
