Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

Like others had said, censoring past content because of modern sensibilities is not something that should be done. I'm of the mind that we should not judge the past through a modern lense. In many cases, we didn't even think like them.

Re: Alex Kidd was a Dragon Ball game?!?

In all seriousness, it's pretty cool to think that one of SEGA's major mascots was almost Son Gokū. Makes me wonder how strange the video game landscape would be if Sega got those rights and then Goku was Sega's big mascot instead of/alongside Sonic the Hedgehog and thus he became a highly associat...

Re: Should Funimation as a Company, wipe the slate clean.

Honestly, no. I haven't seen any credible information regarding the actions of the rest of the cast, and several of them have been playing their respective characters for 20 years. If anything, it's too late for a complete recasting. You'd be hiring sound alikes at this point in the same way that so...

According to a Vic defender, he pulled her hair 'playfully' and that makes it okay :crazy:

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

The only discriminatory things I heard on the tapes were what Schemmel had Gokū call his son, but even then, I doubt they'll do anything. He brought up Fire Emblem, but think of the company behind that franchise. Well, keep in mind that I have very limited experience with translating and localizing...

Definitely part of it, and Chuck's affidavit seems to support this to an extent, but Vic's problems seem to have nothing to do with his faith.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Note that Chuck acknowledges them as rumors . Rumors he "believes" are credible, but still rumors... The very thing that #ISWV has claimed to be against. The hypocrisy continues to be stunning. That, annnnd him acknowledging the rumors stretched back to 2003. Libel-proof. In his affidavit, he ackno...

Re: Vic Mignogna

If what Chuck Hüber is saying about Sabat and Schemmel is true, it definitely doesn't make them look good. There are things in the response that seem valid (such as Erica's affidavit), but not much besides that. At this point, I just want to hear the verdict.

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

I wonder if this is end of it, or we'll be getting more revelations. The dub voice actors' reputation is getting tarnished and it split the fandom even more than it already was in this regard. These things won't be forgotten that easily. Schemmel or Sabat should take some action or announcement, no...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

What people need to realize is that these clips come from a different Funimation. The Funimation of 90s to early 00s is not the same Funimation we know today. Heck, that contract I keep on seeing cited might not have even been the contract the cast signed originally. Voice actors do this all the tim...

Re: Should Z get yet another redub in English?

Yes, I absolutely think it needs a total redub. The FUNimation dub has too many deep-seated problems that will never go away. Kai 1.0 was good, but what I want is a company that has absolutely zero concerns about the existing FUNi/Ocean/Whoever crowd being upset and simply makes script and casting ...

Re: Great performances by DB cast in other series?

One I can think of is Chris Sabat as All Might in MHA. Couldn't think of anyone else who could portray that role in English. While we're talking English VAs, Sonny Strait gave such a gripping performance as Maes Hughes in FMA Brotherhood I'm not as familiar with other roles the Japanese cast has pla...
