Re: Do you believe Nadolny would’ve improved if she came back?

I think Nadolny was miscast as Gohan, her voice was just too raspy and gruff for the character. Her Kid Goku was passable but she's far from an ideal casting choice in my opinion. Saying she was the best Kid Goku in the English dub is faint praise because there wasn’t really a good Kid Goku in Engli...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I wasn't aware that Toei Europe wasn't around until 2004, so now I'm wondering who sent the tapes to the UK and what led to the switching off between the Ocean and Funimation dub for the Buu saga? Was it Canada and America, Toei in Japan, or even the AB Groupe somehow? AB were distributing it to th...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Before I start, I want to note something. I recently read an article on anime news network (I can't find the particular article now link now) that mentioned that it is not uncommon for Japanese production companies to request foreign distributors to send dubbed masters back to Japan. When they are ...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

It's a solid theory, but you're placing too much stock in AB Groupe's involvement. Apart from handling European distribution and providing video tracks for the final four episodes, AB Groupe really had nothing to do with the actual production of the dub in Vancouver. While it's certainly never been...

Re: So I watched an episode of the Westwood dub

Gohan only got like 2 lines that episode so hard to say but Henderson seemed a bit off to me. Like she was subtly trying to sound more like Nadolny but ugh why? Though I didn’t hear enough to make a fair judgment. Seems a bit of a weird criticism to make. She's doing her own Gohan voice but adjuste...

Minor nitpick but I wouldn't frame it that was rejected - he likely never auditioned for this as he seems to have quit acting long ago and moved into a different line of work.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

This is probably all crazy complicated but hopefully it is far simpler to get Ocean Kai out there. Mainly because I still suspect Toei did actually produce it themselves. But that is still unknown. I say simpler cause it then cuts out one more person to deal with. I think. Well, indeed. If Toei pro...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I think you're being just a little over-dramatic there... It's not about dubbing loyalty or anything like that; the problem is that MangaUK is pretty much purely an import company. They import Funimation releases, do it cheaply, and do very little else. RTD was an idea that was floated, but assumin...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

As Ocean Kai will almost certainly never get a home release the only financial loss the producers can face is from those living in Canada who don't stream or watch it live. The rest of us have no legal means of supporting it, so unless potential distributors (Eg MangaUK and Madman, but there would ...

I'm pretty sure that using your normal voice is less taxing than maintaining a gruff voice, but okay.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

It might be easier to contact Scott. When I talked to Brian and Peter, Scott McNeil came up a few times during the conversation. The two of them specifically mentioned to me that Scott is a very hard man to get ahold of and prefers not to use social media. They apparently don't even see him very of...

Re: Manga UK releasing DBZ Movie & TV-Specials Collection (Blu-ray/DVD)

I doubt Manga UK had any inclination the new remasters were coming, hell, I wouldn't even say its likely Funimation knew until they were announced. Doesn't matter to me, they're a business after all and I shouldn't be expected to pay for their mistakes or oversight. If they can't communicate effect...

Re: Manga UK releasing DBZ Movie & TV-Specials Collection (Blu-ray/DVD)

As far as I'm concerned, these Manga UK releases are even more worthless than they were before. With Toei's own HD remasters out, you'd have to be a rather ignorant fan to still want these. MangaUK are most likely just trying to squeeze whatever they can out of these old masters before they're no lo...

Nice to hear you had a good time.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Scott's Piccolo was fine, no performance stays the same across that many episodes. I feel as though the critics either don't understand Piccolo's character growth or are just too blinded by nostalgia for the Saban voices to give any credit to the improvements made in the Westwood dub. He started out...

Nice work SX10! This was a nice birthday treat to wake up to. Just the mere fact that Toei has acknowledged they have the dub is progress. The only bit of that response which somewhat confused me was her referring to "Ken". Do you think she was talking about the Ken Morrison? (the one behind Ocean S...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I always thought Mark Hildreth would've made a great Ocean Bardock back when Z was being dubbed in 2000-2002. He was in the same vocal range as the Ocean Goku actors yet maintained a much cooler and more serious demeanour in his roles. He wouldn't have been the guy they picked for Kai though since h...

In some ways, if this dub is coming out now, it might actually be a better time for it to happen than ever before. If it came out in 2009/2010 alongside Funimation's version, heavy criticisms from people who are not used to the Ocean cast, and those who want to compare it to the American version, w...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Wow, nice find.

This seems to indicate that the show may be headed for Canadian TV after all? Unless any of those other listed shows are currently MIA.
