Re: DBZ Creative Products/Filipino Dub "Greatest Rivals" HQ

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: DBZ Creative Products/Filipino Dub "Greatest Rivals" HQ

So dub collectors on Twitter are finally getting ahold of Crygus's recordings. In addition, one person who grew up watching this dub revealed some info about it: it seems that they redubbed the Saiyan arc after The Greatest Rivals was released! This new dub apparently got to the Freeza stuff though ...

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...

Re: Why you should thank TheCW, rethink 4kids, curse Saban and HATE LITTON.

Far less people in comparison to what? Nicktoons DBZKai was seen by 600K TOPS and TheCW DBZKai by OVER ONE MILLION PEOPLE. Sure I guess the syndicated run and the Kids WB run were seen by far more people, but this is the one issue I will pull my nerd glasses out. Um ok, well then it seems i have it...

Milkman, I just spot checked the redubbed lines in a certain scene and I wanna cry with how well it turned out! Gonna keep the scene I'm talking about a little vague just in case folks want to be surprised, but Kal was absolutely the right man for the job!

Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

I have to wonder what they did to Episode 89 to get it suitable for broadcast. I wonder if LostTimeLord happened to record that one Funnily enough, that's the only episode from "Series 2" that didn't record properly (due to Vegas crashing my PC while it was on). Fortunately, I recorded the repeat. ...

Yeah, we had the same issue on Toonami here in the US. They said they had to cut frames during some of the acti...

Re: So, did DBZ Movie 14, and everything after scratched your DB itch?

My only itch I needed scratched was a good dub for the main story. With Kai, we're halfway there. Hell, from the time it was leaked by Tanaka, the one thing I was most excited for DB-wise until it finally came out in 2017 was the Boo Kai dub. I even kept up with the entirety of the Japanese broadcas...

Hey guys, check it out!

Sorry for the double-post but I can't edit my original post anymore. I just remembered Z Movies 10 and 11 have a recently-resurfaced Philippines-based english dub by Solar Entertainment. If accuracy's what you care about most, from what I've seen, they're translated more literally than FUNimation's...

Re: Luis Alfonso Mendoza (Gohan's Latin Spanish VA) has passed away.

This is absolutely awful news. While I haven't watched a lot of the Latin Spanish dub let alone the Boo arc, I know how well-loved that cast is. As far as I can tell, the community has lost a wonderful talent to a senseless tragedy. It's even worse knowing that two of his loved ones were killed as w...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

I don't really consider the Z dub to be "my" dub since I don't watch it anymore, so I'll go with Kai for the Z material. By far the worst performances are Sabat's ReaCoom and Schemmel's Kaio. I'd probably give the edge to ReaCoom since that voice is more grating to me. I guess I'm just so used to Sc...

Mark me down for OG DB and Kai for this round! Already explained why earlier in the thread. Still like Z and Super, but DB is much better than Super and Kai is the more engaging way to watch the Z story IMO.
