Re: Audience "Stand-In" characters (Cole Young) and Narrative Liberties with Live Action Dragon Ball

While I haven't watched the movie yet, have to ask, would a variation of the classic theme song with his name instead of whoever he may have replaced work? Speaking of which of things I've seen, haven't seen if Raiden and Johnny Cage were in it, so guessing it would be one of their names, or would i...

I doubt it as Toriyama didn't really read manga growing up from what I've read
Don't think that'd be an issue as Rumiko-sensei's about the same age, if not a little younger.

DB Actors on Space Battleship Yamato

Due to recent watching of Star Blazers 2199, was wondering if there were any DB cast members who were also in the original Space Battleship Yamato? With the remake, while I mainly watching the dub, noticed a few names of the Japanese cast I recognized, but not sure for DB, but would have to look up....

Re: Let's Use The Real World Calendar.

I was born one year before the Saiyans saga, that would make me three years younger than Gohan. We're close to the Dragon Ball GT events, by the way. Just a few more years! Anyway, do you have any cool/fun info to share after knowing this? Let us know! :thumbup: Also, let me know if you want me to ...

Re: Would a “true” faithful dub ever be possible?

It would also be not a big market I'd say. For example, a new Ghost in the Shell dub starring Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Richard Epcar would be cool to see, but don't think there's a market for it so it ain't happening. Same thing with a new dub of "Castle of Cogliostro" starring tony Oliver, Richar...

Re: Would a “true” faithful dub ever be possible?

Even Toei does age changing with voices. Recall hearing the Japanese version of Digimon season 2 had T.K. voiced by a man while he was voiced by a woman in season 1, while Tai and Izzy's voice actresses didn't change.

Re: Would a “true” faithful dub ever be possible?

Sometimes it can work out fine as we saw with Naruto. And while Yuri Lowenthal does great as him, part of me still thinks Tara Strong could've been older Ben 10. Also redubbing costs money. For example, think a few folks wouldn't have minded if the Mega Man collections had new and better dubs for Me...

Re: What English speaking Actress Could Pull Off Playing Adult Goku in an Official Dub?

I think that Faye Mata ("Fate/Apocrypha" and "Konosuba") could possibly pull it off. Maybe if she did something similar to her portrayal of Astolfo from Fate/Apocrypha. I have only seen clips of the show so far, but Astolfo seems to have that naive, outgoing, non-socially aware personality that Gok...

Apologize if this belongs more in the Super Section, but thought I'd ask guys here since it's kind of a general question.

Re: Do you prefer to watch the censored or uncensored version of Dragon Ball?

Uncensored, though I haven't watched any of them in a very long time, I wouldn't mind the early seasons out of nostalgia. And while some of the dub hasn't aged well by today's standards, censored or not, I'd still watch it over weird subbed shows like Oreimo.

Is Bob Carter (the voice of Bojack) black?
Yes. Will say, knew he was Bojack and Balrog, didn't know he was Sig Curtis and Syn Shenron. Grant I didn't watch much of GT and been a bit since I saw many of the FMA eps he was in, hence why I didn't know.

Re: Black history month: Who is your favorite black DB character?

Now that I think of it, besides Bojack, have there been any Black actors in DB? Haven't watched Super, so no clue who of new guys are there, and with Kai and two movies, most diverse of Funimation's cast are one half-Vietnamese guy and two Hispanic women. Know with voice acting, it doesn't matter so...

King of Strong Style Fit in a DB Movie?

Now know the likelihood of another live action movie might not be good, and he's pushing 40 now, but was thinking would Japanese wrestler Shinsuke Nakamura be a good fit for someone if there was one? Even if not as Goku or Vegeta, as someone else major if a movie was made? For those not familiar, wh...

Re: Oh god DISNEY+ is Adding Dragon Ball Evolution

I have to wonder which will happen first, a good Fantastic Four movie, or a good live-action Dragonball movie. Both seem practically impossible. Those two with Chris Evans were good, though the director's not wanting to limit Galactus for a follow up was lame. Also while the second didn't make as m...

The one with this intro . Admit I was confused about Penny being in the intro, but never showi...
