She did. And i think she was "voicing" Bra in Super, too.

Re: Is Super fighting an uphill battle? (Not a hate thread)

The series is far more accepted, relevant and discussed now than it was in the first two arcs. Even those people who hate everything can't stop watching. It's the show that brings Crunchyroll down. Casuals love it, as far as i can tell. Like it or not, the fact is Super is a massive success that pre...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Now what will Toei do? Write Bulma off the show or get a new seiyuu for her? There'll be a year or two before another VA is chosen as a sign of respect. Most likely there'll be a hiatus or they'll write around having no Bulma for a long while. They really don’t do that. Roshi’s original VA died in ...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 100

The thing is, his episodes are usually extremely conservative and limited. If his the supervisor, its usually the markings of a solo episode, meaning outside of maybe one other KA, it'll be Yashima doing conservative work and 2nd KA's cleaning him up. I have some faith in Kazuya though, his at the ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I'm not going to entertain the "spoiled episode titles", because we've been down this road before. In other news, Toei continues to make a lot of money. Full article.. Toei cited that sales of its Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle smartphone game were key in this area. The game has reached 200 million do...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Yeah, Chioka stopped having any involvement with the series, that we know of, that long ago. People should stop calling him series director when, well, he's not. I do think it is very strange that would announce at a convention when the series may end. At a convention outside Japan. In an interview ...

Yep. My workmates have asked him about Jaco, new TV specials, crossovers... Everything is possible. What I'm really impressed about our interview is the security of Chioka when talking about the future of the franchise. He's sure we'll have a lot of Dragon Ball for many years. An interesting fact i...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

I guess Dragonball Super is saved from the verge of being canceled as long as it stays 5.0 or higher. I wonder if it's also Caulifa/Kale eps hyping them up because the two Saiyan females are the most popular characters in the series now. Because Boruto, Pokémon, Precure, etc were all cancelled, ami...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

What I got from this is that the formulation faze of an arc is more or less a group effort. Toriyama, Toyo and Toei staff probably meet to brainstorm and discuss ideas, and Toriyama decides what stays and what goes. Concerning the Vegetto part - is it really any different than all those times his e...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

Those are actually amazing ratings considering the competition DBS and OP have now. Especially DBS, since it runs against Kamen Rider, which always had higher ratings than Super Sentai and is an EXTREMELY popular franchise. Rider has ratings way above the likes of Naruto/Boruto/Pokemon, for instance...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

I thought Super Sentai and Kamen Rider were much less popular than One Piece... Here's a list of the last known ratings from the previous Kamen Rider (Ex-Aid) and Sentai (Zyuohger). The ratings are lower than both One Piece and DBS, no question, but they're huge enough to take away some part of the...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

That was a weird week. Many shows were on a break, so ratings feel lower than usual, but they really aren't - BNHA did better than its average, for instance, and those are trivial numbers for Conan, Precure and Maruko. I'd say the premiere of Tv Asahi's Super Hero Time block in the new timeslot did ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

The anime and manga are two different takes on the same story. If one says something, we shouldn't take it as, "Oh, when is the other going to reveal this plot point?" Just because Quitella beat Beerus in an arm wrestling match doesn't mean that the mortal in the anime HAS to be from Quitella's Uni...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 100

Side note: Seriously everytime I go on ANN there is always something about the OP special, now a 3rd promo video apparently, meanwhile we just have the same visual repeated... Yay. To be fair, most of the stuff in those OP promos is old footage - well, that and nonsensical Jesus/Judas analogies. Wh...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

This two part episode Special they are doing for One Piece and Dragon Ball Super wouldn't have anything to do with the seemingly declining ratings would it? DBS wouldn't even have a special, they've said they're just doing it because One Piece decided to have one. Maybe because DB happened to be at...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

Dang, everything is low. Sazae only in the 8's and the One piece special. As long as i can remember these are series low for both One Piece and Maruko-chan, but maybe it's the lowest rated OP special too. It seems the weekend anime were the most affected - Pokemon and Shin-chan did the usual after ...
