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...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

personally i cant trust viz after how they did sailor moon's re-dubbing. easily among the worst voice acting I've ever heard. But ida loved for pioneer to get it. theyd have put out everything on laserdisc so we woulda had dual languages and subbed from day 1 and better than vhs quality. Wasn't Sai...

Re: Is DBZ Sci-Fi?

While I wouldn't call DBZ Sci-Fi, I would put it along fandoms that are liked along with sci-fi, superheroes, etc. For example, many folks would be happy to meet DBZ cast, as they would a member of the Enterprise crew. And pictures with either can get some envy by some folks' peers. Myself, met quit...

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

Perhaps you should see if you can find the Geneon release. Or the Bandai ones for Escaflowne and Code Geass, as those you can still find online or at conventions.

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...

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

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. If you want to keep moving the goal posts instead of addressing actual issues how about Japanese audio of Speed Racer only being on a limited edition $300...

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...

I take it you missed the early 2000s when Tenchi Universe and Gundam Wing had complete collections for $200. While I'm glad I got them for a lot less years later, had I had the money back then, would've gotten without regret or hesitation. And where are you looking at Speed Racer being so high as th...

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

Still seems overkill. Come to think of it Shinobi-03, how much of Funimation's catalog besides DB are you able to see or get? Not sure if the heavy fanservice shows or niche titles like Yuri on Ice or Citrus would have a following outside certain markets.

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

I don't watch the streaming stuff, so no clue on the dumbbells show. But making some things word for word would result in the Speed Racer factor. While that worked for Speed Racer, it doesn't with modern anime. This scene from Shimoneta is close enough to the sub but not word for word, but has the p...

Some of this talk reminds me of some years back when I heard some guys say that Nelvana needed to go out of business for what happened with Cardcaptor Sakura. I said that was a little harsh, and reminded them of some of the good shows that company did, and some quieted, or just started ranting about...

Dub transcribed subtitles on Outlaw Star Outlaw Star is a license rescue. Some of those aren't changed from their old company's releases, such as Girls Bravo and Kanon having the same fonts of some things that Geneon and ADV had. I own the Bandai release of Outlaw Star, which cost me $45 each for a...

First of, sorry if this topic is rude, i don't wanna start any flame war, lets keep this discussion civil :) Funimation cancelled Ishuzoku Reviewers, making it impossible to watch legally, what is more worrying, is they still hold rights to it, and might not release it on DVD/BD, my question is, ha...

Majin Boo sketch idea

While as of this writing, this is too close to my local anime con to do this year, had an idea for a DBZ cosplay sketch that I think would be kinda funny. Bad guys summon Majin Boo to battle Goku but when he appears, his clothes are the same, but they're on a guy in a chicken outfit. No one except o...

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

Not so much like a Western comic, but I kinda wonder how the DB cast would look like if drawn by Alex Ross. For those not familiar, he's a really good artist who has worked on a few comic series. This link below to the tvtropes article on the series "Justice" shows an example of his work: https://tv...

Re: Brice Armstrong (Captain Ginyu, Lord Slug) passed away

I was about to post this. He was my favorite of the Funimation narrators. And he made Lord Slug, a villain who was kinda lame, sound cool with his voice. Great Ginyu as well. RIP Mr. Armstrong. Wish I had a chance to meet you.

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

I have to say it's a bit troubling hearing Western comic books being framed as "lacking consistency" and "rebooted ten different times" and so forth. I don't think that comic book history deserves to be misrepresented in that way. If anything, Dragon Ball might become *more* consistent in the Marve...

Cool. It’s a combo of the Last Ride and Bautista Bomb. I love that he calls it the Spirit Bomb. Hope he comes to AEW. NXT's been treating him well and he's playable in 2K20. Will say does kind of bring to mind that guy Krillin beat in the 25th Budokai due to being agile as well as a big powerhouse....

Spirit Bomb Wrestling Move

Don't know if guys on here knew about this, but there's a wrestler named Keith Lee who calls one of his finishing moves "The Spirit Bomb". It's a powerbomb variation and while it doesn't exactly look like when Goku uses one, thought it was interesting given the name. Here's a video showing a few tim...
