Re: Dialogue Comparisons: FUNimation Z vs. Z Kai (Uncut)

EDIT: Yes, the Funi dub is ancient and negated by the Kai dub's existing, just driving home my personal beef that the FCC is not a crutch for intentionally bad writing- what with Kai dub's showing me how little visual edits actually matter (I barely noticed, no immersion lost at all) when the scrip...

Re: FUNimation's Dragon Boxes have indeed been discontinued

Here ya' go. http://www.funimationchannel.com/shop/products/DRAGON-BALL-Z-%252d-DBOX-FOUR.html Thanks for the heads up! I own all seven Dragon Boxes, but my copy of Disc 20 in Dragon Box Vol. 4 is defective and always freezes at one specific timecode, which has made ripping all the discs to my hard...

Re: Worst dub lines ever

Really? I thought that they had Kyle Hebert as the narrator. Nope, not for these "sagas" anyway. Dale "monster truck announcer" Kelly is present in all his cheesy glory. Not to mention this scene right here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=copDFCwqlgY Starring only 3 voice actors. Take a guess at wh...

Re: Worst dub lines ever

I MIGHT be possibly buying a couple boxsets of Season 3 in the near future, so if I get the chance I can probably do one for Season 3. That, and I could possibly complete the Freeza Saga challenge. I own the ("silent fix" re-pressings) of the Season 3 DVD singles. Captain Ginyu, Freeza, and Trunks ...

Re: Overrated use of the words "damn", "hell" and "bastard".

Kuso and chikusho are not strong curse words. Even though they literally mean "shit", they are used more in the context of "darn" rather than "damn" or "shit". Kisama does not mean "bastard". It is simply a very informal way of addressing someone (in other words, a rude way of saying the second-per...

Re: Overrated use of the words "damn", "hell" and "bastard".

If they say kuso/chikuso, jigoku (maybe there are other forms of "hell" used as well, I really don't know), and kisama in the original Japanese script, then why wouldn't they say damn/shit, hell, and bastard in the English dub for Kai, as opposed to other more severe/profane words? If it's there in ...

Re: Three Questions

Just to make it a little clearer, both the Orange Bricks and the Dragon Boxes have the voice actors that samuraix123 listed in parentheses next to "remastered." The only way to legally obtain the episodes that feature the original in-house Funimation voice cast is to buy the old DVD singles, which,...

Good news. We won the auction.

Hooray for teamwork. :) Nice! I assume you will PM us with information about how much we have to...

Re: AT's income from Dragon Ball

Dragonball has probably generated a lot more money than one man can spend in his entire life. But still I find it kind of sad that Toriyama probably sees only a small percent of all that generated wealth that wouldn't be there without his original manga. True, but all of that generated wealth would...

Re: AT's income from Dragon Ball

You must seriously doubt the amount and variety of merchandise there is for the franchise. That is seriously cool. Without trying to sound even the tiniest bit racist, that is Japan for you. lol They've probably already made any obscure product you could possibly want, anything to make a buck off o...

Re: AT's income from Dragon Ball

Typically, manga artists are paid by the page, and get residuals from volume sales. It's also reasonable to believe he's getting a cut of merchandise(anime, games, toys, shirts, frying pans, etc.). Not sure if he sees overseas sales, though. Just judging from manga sales alone, I would say he's pre...

So Ron * composed and Shuki/Kussa were credited? Jeez. What the hell is up with crediting the musicians on Dragon Ball world. In large productions such as Dragon Ball, it's common to have writers and performers create copyrighted context under a work for hire agreement, which in this case means tha...

No, he did not. What would give you the impression that he did in the first place?

Also, this should obviously be in the music sub-forum.
