Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Wow, is this still going? That's cool. I haven't really watched it since Nappa died, what with the whole Ghost Nappa thing (didn't think he was funny at all; in fact, quite the opposite). In any case, I didn't come here to bash the parody. Just wanted to say I give a lot of props to Masako for Goku....

Re: "Son Gokuu" in DBZ Kai

It seemed like they tried to impress fans of the Japanese version without completely alienating fans of the heavily changed crap from the past (even though many of them hated the cast changes, proper script, lack of Team Faulconer's score, etc.)

Re: If Toei could and did make actual Dragon Ball (no Z) Kai

I would like it just so it could get a proper dub this time around. Even if the new Oolong voice kinda sucks.

Re: Why does Colleen Clinkenbeard get SO much hate?

I don't like how gruff she makes her voice for Luffy. Granted, he's a 17-year old, but the voice sounds so unnatural. Like she's trying her hardest to sound like a boy (to the point where the voice is just mismatched). If it was smoother, closer to her Gohan voice, I would like it more. And then it'...

Re: Ever feel like it's difficult to return to the English d

I have no problems going back to DBZ, at least now with Kai. It's easy for me to pop in and enjoy. Otherwise, yeah, I probably wouldn't be watching the series much.

Re: "Son Gokuu" in DBZ Kai

It's a good gesture, it just reminded me of all the instances where he's referred to by his full name in the Japanese version, but the dub script didn't carry that over. :P Don't mind me, I guess I'm just too picky.

Re: Would you support Dragon Ball with a new voice cast?

Uh, no? I never mentioned anything about disrespecting the original cast. Unless you're referencing my comment about not being attached to said cast. What I'm basically saying is that even I should respect them more than I do.

Yeah, it was very odd to me. Every other instance of his full name is removed except in that one part. It actually bothered me rather than impressed me due to the lack of consistency. But I guess the fact that it was thrown in there is a good sign. Maybe if there's ever another re-release of DBZ tha...

Re: Canonicity of "Episode of Bardock" and 2008 JSAT Special

Yes, but Vegeta has a short-fuse and is quick to argue. If he knew his brother was alive, do you seriously think he could keep it a secret? To me, it seems like something he'd accidentally blurt out in a fit of rage (like "The only other Saiyans besides you and I are your son and my brother! ... Cra...

Re: Canonicity of "Episode of Bardock" and 2008 JSAT Special

I don't consider the 2008 JSAT Special to be canon. Vegeta always seemed so certain that there were no other Saiyans. I just can't buy that he kept his brother a secret during all that time. Chances are it would have come up eventually, like something he would accidentally blurt out. And, like menti...

Re: Ever feel like it's difficult to return to the English d

It's currently impossible for me to go back and watch FUNi's DBZ dub. The acting, the script, even the casting (in places)... horrible. I like the Kai dub, though. The biggest annoyance from that is attack name inconsistencies. I also refuse to watch Dragon Ball in English, and if someone put a gun ...

Re: What if Toei hired Bruce Faulconer?

After listening to Faulconer tracks, for what they are, music, they're quite impressive. :) FUNimation could've reused DBZ Faulconer tracks on the Z Kai home releases but keeping all silence moments exactly as they were on the original/Japanese version. I'm so glad they didn't do that after the Yam...

Ah, no, didn't mean that as an attack against you. I just meant in general. Some people are too attached to the dubs, me too (admittedly).

Re: Why does Colleen Clinkenbeard get SO much hate?

If they got a young boy to do it, it would be odd hearing him voiced by a woman in the games. Especially the ones coming out during Kai's run. If they had the boy voice for both Kai and the games, it wouldn't be very long before he'd be recast.

I've never been too attached to the Japanese cast, but I do respect their work and I think more DBZ fans need to stop disregarding the original version of the dang series. But, yes, I would.

Re: Techincally Kai is completely pointless.

If it wasn't for Kai getting a dub (and a pretty good one at that), I wouldn't have cared for it at all. But because of it, I feel like this is the first time we've been able to watch the anime without it being butchered for the English release. The removal of filler is just icing on the cake for me...

Re: Manga vs Kai

It's a shame Kai doesn't feature the Buu stuff, because DBZ ruined the arcs pretty badly. Way too much build-up; I recall getting bored of Goku's fight with Freeza for that reason. If you were going to watch it, you'd probably be better off watching the entirety of Kai and then just picking out the ...
