Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Dragon Ball (OG)

I recall reading on this forum long ago that Funimation did intend to just cut their DBZ dialog up to match Kai, but Vale (that's the voice of Future Trunks, rite?) insisted it was a once-in-a-life-time chance to make some-thing DB related that's actually accurate to the original and high-quality. ...

Re: So I rewatched Dragon Ball GT

Fair enough, but that's 20 bucks down the drain for a series that you don't care to watch and will just sit their on the shelf. Even if you did try to watch it, it doesn't seem like you'll get very far. It would be like me spending $20 on Fullmetal Alchemist. I found the 12 or so episodes I did see...

It was only 20 bucks when I bought it so I think that was a good deal but I would probably never pay more than that.

Re: So I rewatched Dragon Ball GT

I honestly have never seen GT really. I saw like the first two episodes and maybe got bits and pieces of episodes when it was on tv back in the day. I bought it a couple months ago but I really have no desire to watch it probably ever. I don't know if I will ever be that bored. Not trying to exagger...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

I wouldn’t say the particular line of dialogue I cited was anymore on the nose than the Japanese version. It was more Yusuke being a smartass than anything. I didn't say that was on the nose. Back to DB, the added humor is often not on character or changes the character. They're broad joke for the ...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

We aren't asking for a direct translation, but a translation that keeps the soul of the characters and story and keeps as close as possible while making sure the dialog flows well is not a big ask. so directly translating each and every line from the original as closely as possible can end up makin...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

I agree that the approach they took to the new dub is very similar to what they did with Yu Yu Hakusho honestly I don't care that the dialogue isn't that faithful because honestly I feel like the dub of Yu Yu Hakusho is much better than the sub is and I think a lot of people feel that way about the ...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Dragon Ball (OG)

I am one of those crazy people who think there is nothing wrong with the old dub so I would say I pass on that. I would say that the Bardock movie is embarassingly bad sounding today and that could use a new dub but no new redubs at this point are really necessary everybody already has the option fo...

Re: Bruce Faulconer or Shunsuke Kikuchi ?

I prefer Faulconer. While I think the music for Dragon Ball is so appropriate for the tone of the series I feel like the Japanese Music fro DBZ sounds too over dramatic and old fashioned. I really prefer Yamamoto or Sumitomo. I don't know if the poor audio on most of the releases might make the whol...

Re: Is being able to watch original DBZ in a non-cropped format for a reasonable price too much to ask?

I would love to get at least the first two dragon boxes eventually but I feel like the prices on them have gone up more than it was even a couple months ago that and they seem harder to come by in general these days.

Re: Thoughts on Colleen Clinkenbeard?

I honestly think Stephanie Nadolny is the best I have to stop at least 2 to 3 times during an episode of Dragon ball to laugh she delivers her lines in such a cute and innocent way it's overwhelming for me sometimes. I also love the way that Stephanie Nadolny had Schemmels doofy laugh down so you ca...
