Re: LIVE Interview with DALE KELLY (Narrator, Ginyu) on 1/29

If there's still time, I'd like to know if he's heard any of the other Funi narrators' work either on Z or any of the other series, and if so what he thinks of their approach. Also, did he get a chance to hear the original Joji Yanami narration at any point before/during/since doing it himself?

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

FUNi's release keeps the usual Freeza and Kuririn, etc. in the subs and the overly literal style Simmons uses. Hmm, interesting. Okay, I guess there's a pretty simple way to settle it. Anyone with the Region A release be willing to play spot-the-difference with me? Scene where Goku's explaining Blu...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

Can anyone tell me what the subtitles are like on the UK blu-ray? Manga UK have included the 5.1 tracks and extras this time, but have apparently authored the disc themselves. The only review I could find that talks about the subtitles says they "do not feel like the true translation of dialogue th...

Re: Akira Toriyama watched Goku vs Superman 2 battle?

I've heard he watched it and was so outraged that he sold all of his belongings so that he could pay off the movie studio behind Batman V Superman so that he could change the ending. Now at the end of the movie Superman will be fighting Thanos (who has the infinity gauntlet) but as soon as the figh...

Re: A Japanese criminal claims that he wanted to become Goha

This kinda reminds me of the Dark Knight Massacre, with that man who wanted to be like the joker. This example gets paraded out a lot, but the guy never actually said that. IIRC it's something the press made up/misconstrued. Plus, you'd think if he was going for Joker, he'd have picked a hair dye t...

Re: Japanese kid Vegeta and kid Trunks voices

Another thing to remember is that Horikawa's natural speaking voice is quite a bit higher than the one he uses for Vegeta. They sound like grown men doing kid voices; I can't imagine there's any post-recording alterations to their performances. Both of them aren't exactly basses, it's not that hard ...

Because he's bloody Superman. That's why. Being superman doesn't mean much. Being Superman means he can becomes as strong as he wants to be. His power is essentially limitless. That's not really true. Yeah, Superman is obviously ridiculously strong, but he has a ceiling just like everyone else, it ...

I don't agree with this but Beerus would stomp N52 Supes.

Or did something happen recently that I'm not aware of.
Comic!Superman has very recently undergone a massive power drain, leaving him mostly depowered. That'll be what singsing is referring to.

Re: Why didn't Gohan beat the crap out of Vegeta

Let's stop this now before you guys embarrass yourselves. Yup.

Though somehow it's still a more worthwhile discussion tha...

Re: Toriyama's racial/ist character portrayals?

How is that ironic? So coming to the conclusion someone is better than someone else both morally and as a fighter is becoming biased? Well... pretty much. Maybe "bias" isn't the best word since it carries negative connotations, but in this context we're talking about opinion. In your opinion, Bruce...

Re: Toriyama's racial/ist character portrayals?

I also wonder if DBZ had bad blood with other asians, we all know the Chinese hatred in manga nowadays, but was that Bruce Lee impersonator meant to look like such a joke? More than likely. Toriyama has a bias towards Jackie , so I wouldn't put it past him to give Bruce (the superior man) the finge...
