Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 36 - DBZ movie 1 (CURRENT WEEK)

I liked the movie a lot, but the drunk apple scene means it is automatically not a perfect movie. I don't think it's bad per se but by the same token not quite great either, and same as I Love Piccolo in World's Strongest plus Gohan's instrumental whistle song scene along with Hiya Dragon in Z movi...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 36 - DBZ movie 1 (CURRENT WEEK)

Well, we have the first DBZ based movie and for basically being a partial rehash of the Raditz kidnaps Gohan plot of the first few episodes of the series it's an overall good adventure that still has some feeling of OG DB in there without the heavy sci fi direction Z itself went in pretty quickly. I...

Re: Best way to watch the English Dub for the first time?

Does everyone just like ignore when the OP says he wants to watch Z with the American soundtrack? Everyone’s just like ignoring that if he wanted to watch a good dub he’d watch the Portugal dub he grew up on. I think he's Brazilian, the Portuguese dub is awful :lol: LOL the dub where certain charac...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

It was a piss poor Pauline Newstone take for the 1999 recorded episodes. For 2005-2007 the new voice sounded more Rita Repulsa hacking up a lung https://youtu.be/CwwTD4ql9ak Wow, and there's also Sabat's awful early take as Vegeta where he was clearly trying to sound like Brian Drummond which was o...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Indeed, it has taken the top spot of my least favorite FUNi performances of a character in the series which was previously occupied by Linda Young's grandma Freeza voice. Ah yes, my favorite take on Frieza. Where he sounds like a guy who has a nasty cold and is about to lose their voice any moment,...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Yep it started out as a pseudo Don Brown impression that evolved into that unlistenable thing it is now. Kind of like Nadolny starting with a half decent Henderson impression that became the chain smoker voice that eventually went into that nasally take. Indeed, it has taken the top spot of my leas...

Re: GT Special question

I believe it was said that the tape master copies of GT that Toei has contain high quality audio, including the special. Apparently they were kept with said audio intact unlike DB and Z.

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

I feel pretty confident in saying that Sean Schemmel’s Kaio/King Kai sounded worse back in 1999. I’m still not crazy about the voice nowadays, but back then, he sounded like someone who was doing a generic imitation of a fat person. Yep it started out as a pseudo Don Brown impression that evolved i...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

. Probably the worst offender is Kaio. It's just unbearable It actually got way worse circa Kai than it did in 1999 imo. I’m at a total loss on why it wasn’t recast. Not like Schemmel needs the work . Bulma hasn't had a good English voice since the 80's . Wendee Lee did reprise Bulma in the Bang Zo...

Re: DB is not better than DBZ

Of course it's not as popular, Funimation did everything in its power to make sure of that. Japan unfortunately aren't innocent either, as even before Kai they were pushing Z as the main product, such as with the dragon boxes. They didn't intentionally try to make something less popular. They kinda...

Re: Wow. The GT OST.

Indeed, it definitely feels different in sound from Kikuchi's DB and Z tracks which lean more a classic martial arts/wuxia type vibe and with that said i feel Tokunaga's OST was a good score for GT and it's adventure based angle especially with the first arc though still good and fitting beyond that...

I'm gonna be really mad if they have film for all of Dragon Ball and arent using it :lol: At they very least the Blue Bricks should have been a film scan if thats the case. What exactly are the “digitally remastered” blue bricks then? The same video transfer that FUNi apparently made 20 years ago f...

Re: Best way to watch the English Dub for the first time?

Well, that is definitely true; a lot of people legit really like the Saban dub... But mostly, it's just because, for some fucking reason, Funi decided that their one and only release of the original version of the show that fans actually grew up on would be a limited-edition box set with rather low...

Re: 30th Anniversary vs 2014 Blu-rays - Are They the Same Remaster?

Dont feel too bad, I lost interest in Dragon Ball around the time the orange bricks came out and came in way late to the Dragon Box game. I ended up getting Dragon Boxes 1,3,5-7 and sold them because I thought I'd never get 2 and 4 (which I later got and happily later sold to a friend who needed to...

I do realize that FUNi's Kai dub (more 1.0 than TFC) is not 100% perfect though really what dub ever is, much like Kai as a product itself is flawed from a production standpoint as mentioned above with all the redrawn scenes and music inconsistency because of the Yamamoto scandal and what have you. ...
