Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

A big reason non-LGBT actors get awards for playing LGBT characters is because there's a bias in Hollywood awards to give them to showier roles. You can substitute "Most" for "Best" and you have the biggest criterion for how performances are judged. Was going to also say voice wise if Funimation st...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

For the most part, voice actors should just play the role they fit the most with. This is how cisgender people wind up play trans characters, telling our stories and getting accolades--while presenting as their own gender--and being seen and associated with roles. Your view on the subject has to be...

By the way, what’s the stance on men voicing women?
If it works. And I'm not just talking about crossdressers. Ed Asner as Granny Goodness was pretty good casting.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I admit part of me felt ashamed before watching "El Cazador de la Bruja" as due the title being Spanish I assumed that the leads would be played by Monica Rial and Brina Palencia. Trina Nishimura and Maxey Whitehead do good jobs, but I felt bad for stereotyping. Also what above guy mentioned about w...

Collections signing

Question to guys who have complete of the "brick" collections of DB, Z, or just assorted merchandise. Have you ever tried to get them all signed by actors who have their character on the cover, or just various cast members sign a particular poster or dvd or anything? For example, here's my collectio...

Re: Is it fair to say that Dragon Ball is no longer marketed to kids in North America?

Now a lot of the kids who grew up with Kai are now watching Super, so maybe the marketing kind of matured along with that new generation of DB fans that Kai brought in? But that's just my theory :lol: Used to joke about that when Funimation started to do a lot of fanservice shows. Said the kids who...

So do folks want Goku to be like this girl , or have the cast embrace their Texasness? While Boomhauer Goku would be funny, many of us wouldn't understand him. Goku being given a southern drawl to adapt the original dialect doesn't mean "Let's make him have an awful, incomprehensible speaking manne...

busting out the "snowflake" tells me exactly what I'm dealing with.

You don't give a shit about Dragon Ball, you're just gat...

Re: Which Modern DB character do you wish were in Classic DB?

Not sure on who would be good in the older things as I didn't watch Super really, but topic does remind me of thought I had a bit ago. Few months back caught G.I. Joe season one episode where the Joes trained as astronauts to go into space and knock out a Cobra satellite. While they were ultimately ...

. So, by your logic, the 4Kids dub of One Piece is totally fine, as is their dub of Sonic X, While the One Piece one is best to not talk about anymore, the Sonic X dub is an odd one due to talk about it. Know a lot of folks who say that they couldn't tell whether or not it simply suffered from a ba...

Due to seeing this video Cam Clarke put up regarding Robotech's 35th anniversary and folks talking about the Harmony Gold dub, thought I'd ask if any of these actors, whether they were in the Harmony Gold dub or not, you could see as any particular DB characters? And for those guys who didn't watch ...

Gundam US Release Similar to DB US Release

Don't know if this seems odd, but recently was thinking in a way some of the Gundam franchise has been released stateside similar to how DB was. With this, I mainly am referring to the Universal Century stuff, and not Wing and other continuities. For example, while I don't know much about the movie ...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

I REALLY dont get why everyone is shitting on the new Sailor Moon dub. Its nowhere near as bad as everyone is saying it is! I'm guessing for some folks it's like how "Battle of the Planets" fans hate "G-Force" with a passion, despite the latter being truer to "Gatchaman". Less censoring, no exposit...

And pictures with either can get some envy by some folks' peers. Myself, met quit...

Re: I kinda wished Goku was more hickish in the Dub.

So kinda like Non Toyoguchi in "Keijo" . Haven't watched the scene in Japanese, so don't know what it's like there, not that I can spot different Japanese accents. Will say, while she didn't give Chi-Chi one, Cynthia Cranz has a pretty Southern accent. THough with how Chi-Chi is, a mix of New York a...

By giving us inaccurate subs in things like Evangelion 3.33, Shin Godzilla or SSSS.Gridman I don't consider them giving us the original product.

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

You forget Speed Racer was much more popular in America than Mach a Go Go was in Japan. As well as being an older series, some of its fanbase aren't anime fans and thus aren't interested in seeing it in Japanese. Folks your dad's age might just want to watch what they saw as kids, and even most hard...
