Re: RIP Brad Venable (aka DBS Shisami)

I'm not super familiar with a lot of his work, but he was really good in the roles I did hear him in. More importantly, from everything I heard from his friends and colleagues, he seemed to be an incredibly important figure in the professional voice acting community, both as a friend and as an advoc...

Re: If anime never happened, would Dragon Ball ever be as big as it is now?

I think it would've been a case of "still really popular in Japan, probably not so much internationally." The case study I'd point to as evidence is JoJo, which has always been popular in Japan and definitely had a niche of international fans through the manga, OVAs, and games, but it didn't explode...

Re: 2021 Dragon Ball Wishlist/Predictions

This year will be slow for DB in general. Between COVID and the fact that current revenue streams don't seem to be slowing down (from what I can tell, at least), there aren't many incentives to change anything up. We will all be very disappointed when Digimon ends and there is no announcement for an...

Re: Would you be interested in a Dragon Ball prequel series?

Nah, that kind of stuff is adequately handled in exposition and flashbacks. A whole series feels excessive IMO. I thought maybe a prequel special would be nice, but that's literally the Bardock special. Even Minus has been adapted into animation at this point. Best to look forward if you ask me. Unl...

This is a wonderful Christmas gift!

Blue Water GT Dub Sync

Happy Holidays to all fans of GT and of the Blue Water dub! I've been hearing for years about how the Blue Water GT dub is the best way to watch the show in English due to its surprisingly accurate scripts and decent acting, but I've always lamented that outside of one fan sync for the first 22 epis...

Re: Dragon Ball Z Arabic dub thread

I never could find an answer on this, but was the Arabic Kai dub any better than previous efforts? I know that dub got farther in the story than the Z dub did, actually finishing on the end of Freeza. I suppose I should also ask if the Super dub was (is?) any good.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Oh, btw, if anyone's wanting to get the season 1-3 steelbooks, they're currently a part of Amazon's "Buy 3 for the price of 2" sale right now, which means you'll get those for ~$40 less, which Amazon tells me is a little less than $84. This is the kind of sale I was looking for with these & I hope ...

A redub would be awesome, but I'm a realist, and I know that realistically, not nearly enough people would pitch in, and whatever money they did pitch in would not be enough to cover the cost of hiring actors, directors, script adapters, recording engineers, mixing engineers, and a marketing team f...

Re: Would you pay Funimation via Kickstarter for a redub of the full Dragon Ball media

I would. I'd contribute even if it were JUST for the first series. Kai has me covered for the Z material, and while I'd like a better GT dub I can at least track down the Blue Water dub for that. The original DB, however, deserves so much better. By all means, keep the original dub on the DVD/BD/how...

Wouldn't it be funny if those episodes were redubbed and we had an "alternate Filipino English dub" :shock: Suffice to say, it really is fascinating what this user recalls. It's worth noting if it's indeed true these episodes aired around 1991-93 then that would make them the earliest known English...

Re: Is THIS a good reason to "skip" DB? (German, watching with partner, dub concerns)

Just start with DB. I'm sure she'll enjoy DBZ just fine, different cast or no. Maybe cut out the filler episodes to help with the pacing, but that goes for both series. On that note, I wish you guys' Kai dub wasn't such a mess because I hear the scripts are much closer to the Japanese. Then again, I...
