Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

No, the Ocean cast did not dub episodes 54-107, and that's always been a particular sore spot for me as far as the history of the dub goes. For starters, for those who've seen episode 108, just listen to the actors themselves. It's clear that some of them are a little "rusty" at playing the characte...

Re: Should Z get yet another redub in English?

This also doesn't fall into redub territory since it's more on the Toei side, but I'd rebuy Kai all over again if the Kikuchi score had the original Z placement of the music tracks, insert songs aside like Over the Star (which I feel were worthy additions). Not possible because of the way that Kai ...

Re: Is it true that there were people making money off the Japanese Broadcast Audio?

If Funi were allowed to put out the Levels in 2011, then I see no reason Toei would block them using the broadcast audio now. It was, to quote you, so much better than what was out in Japan. It's just that this is video instead of audio. There is a major difference between the audio and video situa...

Re: Help Guide for DBZ Funimation Singles DVDs (links + screens)

Though honestly, in an ideal situation, I'd rather own a boxset that just used the uncut Pioneer versions of all three movies. It does exist . Plus, Tree Of Might is presented as a marathon feature on RTD, not the original 3-episode version, so arguably even that's done slightly wrong. Although I a...

Re: Is it true that there were people making money off the Japanese Broadcast Audio?

Funi started releasing stuff in 1996, with it being bilingual starting in 1999. Fan assumption means nothing. It's not even useful speculation in this case, as there's no sources to back up even the simple idea of Funi never being provided the NEPs. At the very least, what will have happened is the...

Re: Is it true that there were people making money off the Japanese Broadcast Audio?

By the way, I talked with someone inside AB group, he told me that all materials used into any release Has to be approved by Toei , without that, Funimation can't use any audios without Toei agreement , so it mean chris has to convince funimation, that need to convince Toei [...] Do you really thin...

I've noticed how Drummond said that he didn't change the way he voiced Vegeta when he became more of a good guy/anti-hero in that video of his panel... For those who don't like that, it's an unreasonable expectation to have. People in real life can go through drastic changes in personality as well,...

Re: English Movie Titles - TOEI Vs. FUNimation

I have no real opinion on most of the title changes, but for DBZ Movie 1, Dead Zone is a much better title than In Pursuit of Garlic . Out of context and without knowing who Garlic Jr. is, one might be given the impression by the Japanese title that it's a movie about Chi-Chi sending Goku to the gro...

Re: The Trimark (BLT) Dub of Dragon Ball

Ah! Thanks. Glad to have that cleared up. I always kinda knew that Saban gave them much better distribution. It's a shame they couldn't have gone with Saban from the beginning. :( Still, there does then remain the mystery of why the plug was pulled after DBZ's second season; it was apparently a pre...

Re: Harmony Gold is still active so couldn't they make a deal with FUNimation?

If Harmony Gold still have the Dragon Ball episodes they dubbed (which I'm doubtful of) yes they probably could, if Funimation were interested. Problem is Funimation doesn't seem interested in promoting alternate dubs, as seen by their consistent refusal to release the Canadian dubs. Rock the Drago...

Re: Why did the Blue Water and Big Green dubs keep the original score?

why did Blue Water not dub the movies? That would have been great but as far as an English AB Groupe dub, there are the "Big Green" for Movies 1 and 3, and they probably dubbed Movie 2 and 4 but we've not seen them. They also dubbed the GT TV Special. There absolutely were "Big Green" dubs of movie...

Re: Why did the Blue Water and Big Green dubs keep the original score?

As far as GT goes, it's worth keeping in mind that Blue Water's GT was dubbed very quickly after the conclusion of the Z dub. It began airing in the United Kingdom even before the first DVDs of FUNimation's dub were released in the United States, and many months before FUNi's version would air on t...

Re: Do you like Kikuchi Kai?

I like it fine enough but the Yamamoto score was way better and tended to have way better placement too. I don't know why I feel this way, I love the Kikuchi score for DB and DBZ, but it just comes off dated and forced in Kai? Because it is both of those things as it pertains to Kai. Kai is a delib...

Re: Interesting coincidences regarding voice actor choices

The biggest coincidence of all has to be the connection between FUNimation's Cell and Westwood/Ocean's Cell.

Dameon Clarke's sister dated Dale Wilson and it's because of Wilson that Clarke got into acting to begin with.

It always makes me facepalm that Funimation had the nerve to fire a bunch of veterans to only replace them with a bunch of nobodies because they were cheaper.
