Re: No, Zamasu was never good.

But he was good. Gowasu literally says he had purity of heart. Also if he was never good then he wouldn't have been a Kai in the first place (and not just that, but a North Kai, which is a high-ranking title), he would've been a Makaioshin exiled to the Demon Realm at birth. In the anime, Zamasu at...

Re: No, Zamasu was never good.

The moment we are introduced to Zamasu isn't the moment he was born, though. The fact that he was a Kaio proves he was good at some point/in the beginning of his life. Otherwise he would be sent straight to the Demon Realm to be a Makaio. It seems Zamasu somehow slipped through their fingers then, ...

No, Zamasu was never good.

There seems to be this odd perception that Zamasu was at one point a noble character, and consequently, a corrupted or tragic villain. However, neither the anime nor the manga support this interpretation; the moment we're introduced to Zamasu, he's already censuring mortals and promoting genocide. I...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Regardless of whose story we should believe, I think this paints a fairly negative picture of the company as a whole. Clearly it isn't run with any degree of decorum or professionalism. Oh my God.

Re: Linda Young and Chris Ayres (Ep 94/95)

I don't know, Linda's Frieza was fairly polite with his clearly affected usage of the phrase "my good man" when addressing Namekians. "I can't hear you, perhaps if I let go." "Those rude little ruffians, that's no way for guests on my ship to behave!"(Other instances of phony geniality.) I also woul...

Re: Linda Young and Chris Ayres (Ep 94/95)

I hate to break it to you, but there isn't much nuance to Frieza in general. He's a faux affable evil psychopath, and that's evident with both performances--he's evil, that's it. The scripts for Frieza in both Kai and Super are absurdly overwritten to the point of, again, coming across as a caricatu...

Re: Linda Young and Chris Ayres (Ep 94/95)

Alright, but no one is saying Linda has to be given the sarcastic one-liners, I'm only talking about the voice itself. Linda liked those lines (her favorite one, if I recall, is calling Nail's severed arm a backscratcher), but she doesn't write them. And I can't agree over Frieza sounding more intel...

Re: Linda Young and Chris Ayres (Ep 94/95)

Are you talking about the writing, or the voice itself? I disagree on both counts, or at least as far as the writing is concerned, the Chris Ayres version is more of what I'd say a caricature of Frieza would be like. I don't see how Linda's voice for Frieza in itself doesn't capture the character, i...

Re: Linda Young and Chris Ayres (Ep 94/95)

The Chris Ayres interpretation of Frieza--or at least, how Funimation is writing him--isn't entirely accurate either. Frieza isn't a blabbermouth faux British John Moschitta Jr. impersonator, in much the same way you believe Frieza isn't a tranny space lizard; that faster-paced dialogue sounds awful...

Re: Linda Young and Chris Ayres (Ep 94/95)

I honestly don't see a good reason why they wouldn't revert back to Young in the case of Ayres' becoming incapacitated. Half of the fandom enjoys her Frieza, so why not make some people happy instead of no one at all?

Re: Dub Freeza and the effect of Linda Young

It was the cheap quality of the music and performance you found enthralling, not the fights or the characters? What about the dub's version of Freeza did you find superior to the original character? Frieza in FUNimation's original dub has meatier sadism baked into his dialogue, and a voice that I f...
