Re: "DragonBall Z Kai" TV Broadcast Talkback

...and there it was. I thought he handled it very well, and it still had that reverb effect on it. Drummond's delivery has the benefit of nostalgia attached to it, but Sabat did just fine (especially considering it wasn't his job to channel Drummond).

Re: "DragonBall Z Kai" TV Broadcast Talkback

I'm curious to hear how Sabat handles Vegeta's famous "You won't escape my wrath" moment. Should be coming up on tonight's episode. More like last Thursday's episode. ;) Wellp, looks like I'm behind. :lol: I'll be catching it for the first time within the next 20 minutes. I've been following Kai ve...

Re: We weren't the first dub to give Freeza a female voice (vid)

I thought most of those voices sounded okay, except... Oh sweet Kami, Freeza's voice is not the main issue here. WHAT is up with Piccolo? Absolutely. Whose idea was it for him to grunt with a weird harmonized effect? Freeza sounds like he's harmonized too. Wow, what was with the voice of Bulma in th...

Re: Dragon Boxes Questions

I don't understand "48 Khz at 448 kbps" Funi's Dbox is 96 Khz right? Also, two channels encoded at 448 kbps breaks down into each of the two channels being encoded at 224 kbps (with the same sound coming from both channels, since this show is in mono). This is a very high bitrate as compressed audi...

Re: Dragon Box 3 discussion

About those screen shots, I made for you guys... It's nice, in a way, to see that there is even some macroblocking during the first scene mentioned on the Japanese sets, but it's still upsetting that it looks so bad on FUNimation's release. Also, as the second set of screens showed, FUNimation's lo...

Re: Beckett Dragon Ball Z 2002

My cousin had a bunch of those. It felt nice to have some kind of publication about Dragon Ball, even if it wasn't anything terribly special. I always thought their artwork was horrendous, though.

Re: "DragonBall Z Kai" TV Broadcast Talkback

So, I guess it's okay to talk about pee and show butts on cartoons now adays. Twenty years ago in the U.S., that was not okay. Actually, considering the aforementioned Ren & Stimpy Show first aired about twenty years ago (which makes me feel old :wink: ), it was just fine back then. Dragon Ball Z w...

Re: Chances of Dragon Boxes getting the UUE treatment?

If anything, I'm nervous for Dragon Ball and GT Dragon Boxes. If we get to the end of the Z run with no word on them, I guess I'll just finally pick up the rest of the season sets, as those at least aren't terrible. That's where I'm sitting too. I'm fairly confident we'll at least see the rest of Z...

Re: Dragon Boxes $26.99 on Amazon.com

Right Stuf does ship ridiculously early when you pre-order, but that's a pretty big price drop on Amazon, especially considering there are at least four sets to go. Amazon also ships for free on orders over $25, whereas Right Stuf's free shipping requires a purchase over $49. Definitely going to be ...

Re: Dragon Ball Z Kai Episodes 1-8 NickToons Talkback

Episode 3 : Edits: They cut out Piccolo's blood actually dripping from his severed arm, but they show the puddle of it and you can hear the sounds of dripping blood. Raditz hitting Gohan was also cut. Notes: Raditz saying "What? What is this?" made me laugh because it reminded me of the original Re...

Re: Dragon Ball Z Kai Episodes 1-8 NickToons Talkback

I know I keep talking about my little cuz but we just had a great time watching Kai together. His theories about the show are the best. He thinks Gohan will turn evil and team up with Piccolo to defeat Vegeta and Nappa. And when Goku returns they'll have to face him together in order to take over t...

In the flashback of Piccolo killing Raditz, he says "Makankosappo!" That's just being inconsistent.

Wasn't the scene in the Cell arc where Piccolo fused with Kami noteworthy for being very accurate to the original?

Re: A Fan Who's Lost

It's important to remember that, in terms of footage, Dragon Ball Kai and Dragon Ball Z are not the same product. The censoring and reanimation are part of what Kai is by nature. As Adamant explained, we are getting Kai uncut, but if you want the footage as you remember it from Z , you have to get Z...

Re: DBZ dub better if watched like US cartoon?

Even with no comparison to the Japanese version, it's not particularly natural to hear "mondo cool," "Krillin's in the house," or "cat loves food, y-yeah, yeah, yeah!" Hearing Vegeta mutter "shucks, Moby Dick" didn't help either. A good portion of the dub dialog either sounds awkward or flat out doe...
