Re: Deploy the Headcanon!

The low class type Saiyans all have high pitch voices. This is the in-universe reason Goku, Bardock, Tullece, Goten etc all the have the same voice.

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Eh not really. Someone being more "high profile" doesn't really make them a better actor, union actors hogging rolls would essentially force wannabe voice actors into joining with them to find work; and voice actors being shafted for celebrities is honestly an annoying practice with big budget anima...

Re: Deploy the Headcanon!

The SSJ3 form's long hair is a safety measure that prevents the user's body being overloaded with ki, by giving it more space to flow through.

Re: Appreciating the Little Things

I liked how creative the title cards were with the Ocean dub, it's a bummer that they went back to plain white text after they started doing everything in house. Can't say I agree. IMO the Ocean title cards look incredibly tacky, like they were made with Microsoft Word art. Still better then boring...

Re: Vegeta spents most of the time being a douchebag in the orginal manga,does a 180 and never suffers for his crimes

This is one area I always thought the old Funimation dub handled better. His turn seemed more slow and gradual, instead of him talking like a psychopath until the Buu arc. I can’t think of anything specific to the old Funi dub that made his turn seem slow and gradual Stuff like those cheesy "Why ca...

Re: Piccolo destroying the cameras

I think it was literally because he was powerful enough to focus on them and blow them up. Freeza was able to takecomplete control of Krillin's body and toss him up like a ragdoll; so it's not farfetched to assume someone as powerful as Buu arc Piccolo could focus a tiny bit of ki into a camera and ...

Re: Has FighterZ made Budokai 3 obsolete?

To my knowledge, Budokai was never played hyper competitively and was just popular among DBZ fans who also happened to be into video games. Fighterz is targeted at fans of more "hardcore" Fighterz. It can't really replace anything, because it's filling a hole Budokai 3 wasn't even in.

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

It's nuts to think there's still unreleased stuff that's been lost for over twenty years. Just when you think you know every obscure thing in the franchise.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

The problem with the "It takes away roles" argument is that it implies minorities are only able to voice characters that represent how they are in real life. And most shows that have white characters voicing people of color usually have tiny voice casts anyway. Commander Black was voiced by Chris Sa...

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

You can't really say "yes" or "no" to this question. One fan could write junk, while another could write a fan favorite story.

Re: “There is nothing to learn from Dragon Ball,” says Akira Toriyama’s editor, Kazuhiko Torishima

Yeah, apart from some minor character development and such, and some interesting lore; there really isn't much to the story.

With the huge influx of 30 something pseudo intellectuals lately trying to make out everything has hidden depths, it's good to admit some series are just dumb fun.

Re: Can we talk about the Funimation Movie Soundtracks?

I've never really had a problem with the "real bands" scores since the DBZ movies always had less plot than the main series, and you were pretty much just watching 40-60 minutes of characters punching each other. Drowning Pool and Disturbed music works just fine for that.
