Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

To lighten up this thread, here are the promos/bumpers that were leading up to and featured the big premiere on Cartoon Network (Toonami): The "coming soon" promos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnqQo7HhcSA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8LlX155X6I The "Z-Day" event promo which was when the new ...

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

I mean, in the Arabic dub of DBZ, all instances of saiyans turning into oozarus are censored because those in charge of the censoring decided that those scenes amounted to promoting Darwin's Theory of Evolution, which many in the Arabic world are opposed to on religious grounds. Instead, those scen...

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

I think it's important to remember, too, that Toei is a Japanese company. I'm not saying anti-LGBT content is right, but I am saying that, on a cultural level, what offends American audiences doesn't necessarily offend Japanese audiences, and vice versa. Political correctness, for example, is genera...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

Yeah I'd say that pretty much wraps it up. It's hilarious to me that Vic Stanleys keep spouting "THERES NO EVIDENCE" yet are quick to believe one single testimony of a guy whose story frequently changes depending on the time of day. Regardless of how anyone feels about this ongoing legal matter...a...

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

I can't believe we're going on 9 years of absolutely nothing coming from this despite constant updates. It's not like any and all activity died off after a year or two :crazy: It's just....not materializing. Oh, trust me, I have long since accepted that we're probably not going to see this dub. I'm...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

I agree. If you want a reference for something that FUNimation did that legitimately pissed Toei the hell off, that would be something like the "One Piece Episode Leak Incident" of a few years back. In summary, around the time FUNimation started simul-casting subbed episodes of One Piece , it was d...

Ah. Ok, so it's even funnier than that. These are all clips they've already been leaked!! Jamie Marchi & Kateration discuss it here (with some folks going "aha!

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

Speculation is part of the the topic, if you don't like it put me on your blocklist cause I'm not going to stop having opinions just because someone on the internet is telling me to stop having them. It's foolish to assume that TOEI doesn't mind that people they have little to no control over who h...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

I'm actually curious how these were leaked to begin with. Do we know that yet? From what I recall, it was a former audio engineer that Nick had tracked down somehow. Don't have the evidence immediately available, as I'm not up to digging through random Twitter posts quite yet... But that's what I'v...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

In all fairness, before they went with an in-house cast based in Texas, they were using the Ocean cast, which was a cast of unionized actors in Vancouver. I'm sure it was financially beneficial for them to use non-union talent when they switched over to using an in-house cast and had zero money to w...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

If anything, part of me wants to hear the other outtakes that I've heard exist. Chris Sabat once said at a con that he sang an English cover of "Dragon Soul" as a joke back when they were dubbing Kai , that they were never actually going to use his version, and that he purposefully sang it badly (an...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

Ludicroud or not, this is now a huge stain on FUNimation, and while I don't think it's grounds for Toei to remove the license, they will likely have a stern talking with them. First it was the TFS cameo situation, now this. You can rest assured Sabat won't be trying anything else to anger them here...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

Words like "Faggot" was still not a good thing to say back in the late 90s and early 2000s. I remember kids that I knew got in trouble for using that word in Elementary school without knowing the full meaning of the world. I even had kids call me that word despite me not being gay because they thou...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

Pardon me for not attaching a url to text like I normally do, but I’m on my phone. According to this article, the leaks have offended some of the Japanese voice actors, who are “actively tweeting about it.” Any truth to this? https://gamerant.com/funimation-audio-leak/?utm_content=utm_medium=Social-...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

Toei will not have any concern about this--or, at the very most, not enough for there to be any repercussions about it from them. Toei is not a US company, after all, it's a Japanese company. Japan isn't experiencing a surge of super-PC attitude like this country is, and between their culture, their...

I still maintain that he is referring to pronunciations and his confusion over how they say Namek now etc. Which would actually be a good thing.
My guess is also that that's what he meant.
