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

Nice to hear you had a good time. I also went on Saturday and turned up when it wasn't too busy so I fortunately got to have a nice long chat with Brian and Peter, I was a little starstruck at first but they were both very cool and easy to talk to. It was quite surreal to be having a conversation wi...

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...

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

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...

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

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.

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

If they had cast Lex Lang as Tenshinhan instead of Goku for the Bang Zoom dub, then it would have been awesome since Lex could have easily been the best Tien, at least to me. Seems like a waste to me. He would just end up sounding close to Burgmeier's Tenshinhan. That being said, I don't like the F...

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

Hearing AIdan's voice in Sword of the Stranger, it doesn't sound anything like Oob to me, the provided clip speaks for itself really, if you listen to the episode with Oob there are lots of similarities to that voice. Sites like IMDB and Anime News Network often seem to borrow from each other on ani...

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

I believe Oob's voice actor was also a child at the time of recording as well. Wasn't Oob's voice Brian Drummond's son? I assume you got that from IMDB? It's most likely one of their mistakes. To my knowledge, Aidan Drummond has never dubbed any Dragon Ball (although I suppose there's a chance he m...

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

It's worth noting that Brenna O'Brien was still a child actor when she recorded for Pan, that's why she sounds like a genuine child. Caitlynne Medrek (Blue Water) would've been roughly 14 or so when she recorded GT.

I believe Oob's voice actor was also a child at the time of recording as well.

Re: Kameha-con 2018!!

Great that Kelamis is back in. It seems to me that everybody involved is on damage control right now, including Kelamis - which is most likely a stipulated requirement of whatever new agreement was made to get him back in. It's been hilarious to see this all unfold and I look forward to seeing if th...

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

Awesome interview. Great to see the love for Drummond. To summarise: * Chris Sabat didn't direct Brian Drummond for the copy Vegeta role, which took only 4 hours to complete (recorded from home in Vancouver). Glad we can finally put this to bed. Too many people were taking the opportunity to only pr...

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

Thing is, they began airing Kai on Kix in early 2012, right? Wrong, early 2013 with the premiere being in December 2012 . I don't think the CRTC approval holds much importance in getting the show on air outside of Canada, it wouldn't be something a UK channel would be concerned about let alone need...

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

Had this run, like a few months to a year after FUNi, they could have competed for the UK, Australia, etc, but that time has come and gone. You DO know that Australia (as well as New Zealand) always get FUNi's dubs of DB material, right? Madman always licenses FUNi's dubs of that material for those...

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

The DBZ Canadian dub was done in a hurry in order, with them making the episodes on the basis that as soon as they were done, they would be sent ready to air, all done as fast as possible. This time, they've deliberately spent a ton of time getting it ready before opening it up to be used. The situ...

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

Y'know, since Ocean Kai was only approved by the CRTC in April 2014... I don't think it's all that surprising that Kix weren't presented the Ocean dub as an option back in 2012; it probably only wrapped in late 2013. I don't think that would be a reason to prevent a UK channel from having it. Remem...

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

Except, even if he reprises every role from the prior Ocean equivalent to Kai's material, all of Michael Dobson's roles are fairly small; Nappa, Nail and King Cold. Tenshinhan's role is larger than all of these, but if Calgary is so much cheaper, surely it makes more sense to just grab all three of...

I'm still not so sure. Tenshinhan is a major part of the fight against the Saiyans, he's one of the group who went to fight the cyborgs Trunks warned them about...

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

I wouldn't call Tenshinhan minor. And really, I don't think they'd impose such a weird, and likely rather unnecessary, limitation on themselves in terms of casting; for the main roles, I imagine they probably auditioned actors from Calgary and Vancouver, and just picked whoever was best. Naturally,...

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

I've also heard that it was over pay disputes, mostly with Kalemis because they weren't counting all of their screams as actual lines, so they wouldn't pay them for those recordings. That's what I've heard at least. Hm. I can't find any reliable sources on reasons why he left. Looks like I was reme...
