Re: Who could replace Nozawa & Schemmel?

I don't get the argument that Sean Schemmel makes Goku sound like a 'superhero'. Sure, some of the dialogue he had back in the day may have given off that impression, but I think he does a perfectly fine job of handling Goku's goofy personality while also making him sound serious when the situation...

I think Andrew Chandler is perfectly fine as Coola.

Re: Masculine Freeza voice

I think Chris Ayres did a great job as Freeza overall, but I don't think it was perfect. :o I feel that giving him an English accent was a bit stereotypical. Also, I know that Freeza is meant to be intelligent and refined but damn, he spoke like a borderline Shakespearean actor in the Kai dub. It's ...

Masculine Freeza voice

Alright so, what would you guys think if Freeza were to have a more masculine sounding voice in the English dub? Most of us would agree that Chris Ayres was the best English take on the character by far, however his voice had a very feminine sort of quality to it. What if theoretically, someone like...

Re: Biggest DB disappointment

Why would you need to go on a rant for that? People have different opinions, besides it's just an anime, no need to get worked up about what other people think. We're on an anime board for a show that's approaching its 30th anniversary. I think it's more than 'just an anime' to a lot of people here...

Re: Biggest DB disappointment

Yeah I agree with you, that's not right, either. I like the Japanase, have the whole manga, and *puts up shield* I still like and prefer the Z dub. Partly nostalgia, partly I don't wanna put out another 100+ dollars for a series I technically own. Honestly a lot of the complaints towards the Z dub ...

Re: What do you look foward to the most from the Buu Arc of

I'm looking forward to hearing how Schemmel handles his screams as SSJ3 Goku. He did a great job in the Z dub and I'm eager to see how great he'll be in the Kai dub for that scene.

Re: Biggest DB disappointment

Well, that's subjective, those lines make me cringe more than Tenshinhan's line. Piccolo's "yes, yes, YES!" was SOOOOO bad and makes me cringe every time I hear it. The frequency of season 3's terrible dialog is unmatched. The big reason I hate the casting decisions is because it created a false im...

Re: Biggest DB disappointment

Season 3's dialog was terrible, and as bad as some of the Ocean lines were, season 3's dialog was like root canal. I don't have a side by side, but I doubt Z was ever better than Kai. At least the Ocean dub had good actors to mitigate many of the awful lines. The raspiness is bothersome, but I can ...

Re: Biggest DB disappointment

Nadonly wasnt bad at all for me in terms of preformance, just delivery. The raspiness she gave gohan is the only real issue. I mean her GT Goku; a similar character sounded far better and far less throaty... if she had a higher more child-like pitch to her voice it may have been even better.[/quote]...

Re: Does anyone else dislike Zenkai Power?

Well....to be brutally honest....it is, hands-down, my least favorite ending song of all the Dragon Ball animes, and quite possibly my least favorite song in all the animes period, including the openings and insert songs. Yes, I know "Dragon Ball" is a silly show, but I believe the song and the ani...

There's the line I just mentioned, Freeza's innumerable sexual innuendos which just got worse in season 3, "more like burnt toast", Piccolo the motivational speaker, Krillin's in da house!, and just about everything the narrator said.

Re: Biggest DB disappointment

I personally could not sit through her ear-grattingly shrill screams and screeching yells without conjuring up some hate to the change. Nadoly at least knew how to yell "correctly" in a pitch that didnt sound like a strangled cat. And that's an opinion that I don't understand. To me, Nadolny was fa...

Different strokes for different folks. Duh. I was not born yesterday. Just because I can't relate to a certain standpoint doesn't mean I don't understand that folks have different preferences.

Re: Does anyone else dislike Zenkai Power?

I find the song really irritating, for some reason. I mean, it's not that I dislike cutesy songs in general (I don't really like it, but I prefer the cutesy AKB48 song over Zenkai Power). I don't think I minded it at first, but the more times I listened to it, the more I felt the need to skip it. A...
