I meant could you see any actors who have played each character play the other character.

Could you see Goku as Superman or vice-versa?

With the many things we've seen on Goku and Superman topics, be it fighting or teaming up, thought I'd ask while not to say there should be recasts or anything, could you see any actor who voiced Goku voice Superman or picture any actor who has played Superman voice Goku? And for you guys who have a...

Re: Dealing with recasts: then and now

With the guys mentioning Mr. Cox, a thing with recastings being weird for me was Zeta Gundam. It was recorded in Calgary as opposed to the original being recorded at Ocean in Vancouver. So Kai not sounding like Inuyasha sounded very odd for me. Him more than the others was weird for a moment. Especi...

Not sure when that started exactly, but think that's more during the Showa era as affiliated with the 80s as that series is.

Re: Funimation and swearing

FUNimation seemed awfully wish washy about their use of swear words back in the day. They mostly steered clear of them in the early years of their in house dub, but their dub of movie 7 (which predates the Ultimate Uncut dub) had #13 saying things like “I’m here to kill your ass”. Even when the Ult...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Actually Michael Sinterniklaas appeared in both the 4Kids dub of One Piece as well as the Funimation dub. So don't think folks would give her a bad time for it, even if she wasn't directed so good there. (Only role of hers didn't like, as others were good). And both actors rocked as Leonardo and Apr...

Never saw "Tenchi Muyo in Love" I take it. That was scored by guy from the group Tangerine Dream. Yes he's a German and not a Yank, but still the point stands.

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

I didn't mind Slug's changed backstory. Yeah, his Japanese wasn't so hot either, but made more sense to me. Also I preferred when they had Raditz talking about Vegeta and Nappa's strength in his dying words over telling them earlier. Gave more of an "Oh crap!" feeling.

Re: Do you think Dragon Ball dub would have benefit from an English Recast?

By what guys are saying of "genuine and professional" voice actors, what do you mean exactly? Do you want union guys who do American cartoons mainly, or big name celebrities who don't really do voice over? This did start the careers of guys who became well known voice actors. Laura Bailey is well li...

ReCOOOOOm, DaBOOOOra, pikkon , they add extra OOOO and take them away from names that had it originally. Ginyu's boys and Bardock's crew too, they messed up the already alien sounding names for the Ginyu Corps but then just straight up gave Bardock's crew new names. Well, aside from his friend, Bar...

Re: Which of FUNimation's Name Changes Bother You the Most?

All of them! Every single pointless name change they made bugs the hell out of me! Hence why I refuse to see DBS Broly in theaters unless it’s subbed. Right off the bat their refusal to acknowledge Goku’s damily name, Son, is a big one for me. He’s the main character and they won’t even say his ful...

Re: Which of FUNimation's Name Changes Bother You the Most?

Digimon had more stuff than that. Of the original Goggles Kids, Takuya from "Frontier" was the only one of them who had the same full name on both sides of the Pacific. (Tai and Takato had different last names, while Davis had his first name different, obviously).

Re: Question for those who read the Manga

Even though I like Chuck Huber's performance for what it is, I hear Greg Ayres as Pilaf and honestly, his voice coming out of Pilaf works a lot better than Huber IMO. Other voices I hear: Babidi sounds like Gilbert Gottfried, Cell is Corey Burton and Kibito sounds like David Ogden Stiers. Which voi...

Can anyone think of a time when a female voiced an adult male character for an American show? Exclude one offs like when Nancy Cartwright voiced an older Bart. Grace Stafford as Woody Woodpecker. Others did him before her, but she's his most known voice. Also there were a couple of Popeye cartoons ...

Re: Which of FUNimation's Name Changes Bother You the Most?

Are you going to tell me now that the correct way to subtitle One Piece involves saying "Nakama" with a TL note? Or, just face the fact that translation is not exact, and you just have to go for approximate equivalents that work fine in English. I'm not too familiar with One Piece, but as I underst...

Re: Which of FUNimation's Name Changes Bother You the Most?

Probably "King Kai" because of how half-assed it is. Either call him Kaio or call him the World King (or something similar... King of the Cosmos, King of the Worlds, whatever). Don't just translate one part of it, that just confuses people. Especially when we get South Kai, West Kai, and North Kai ...

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

Sometimes the opposite happens as during the Amazon Lily arc of One Piece , the dub has one woman Sweet Pea voiced by a man. In Japanese, she's voiced by the lady who voiced Japanese Orochimaru, but not in English. Heck, Doug Goodrich even joked about it in the commentary of how he and two others we...

(Though on a semi-related note, part of me wonders if Scandanavian dub of Pokemon called Team Rocket Red and Eric to do a pun). The Norwegian dub didn't, at least. Still "Jessie and James". I don't think they changed any names, at least not the names of any major characters, from what they were in ...
