Re: Kikuchi Kai: Is the music quality better?

Makes me wonder. Are there such thing as Kikuchi score replacements for episodes 1 - 52 out there? If so, is there any way I could obtain copys of them to replace my existing ones for 1 - 52 with Yamamoto score? The answers to your questions, respectively, are "yes," and "quite easily." When Toei m...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

Also, this likely won't be a deal-breaker, but if only to throw this in as a super-short "bonus point," feel free to point out that the dub has been successfully registered as Canadian Content: https://services.crtc.gc.ca/pub/CanrecL ... 4-01&C=07E

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

Not related to Dragon Ball but we got a new InuYasha anime coming out https://twitter.com/RanobeSugoi/status/1258787350806749185 Maybe this will give [as] Canada or Wow's channel a reason to air TFA to prep, if it gets licensed and dubbed that is. Here's hoping Vancouver gets to hang on to that pro...

PS: Where is there a link to that place where it's shown that the Ocean dub was certified as Canadian Content? Figured that might be another nice point to throw in there. Right here: https://services.crtc.gc.ca/pub/CanrecList/eng/CanadianProgramList?F=2014-04-01&T=2014-04-01&C=07E You're a good man.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

Even I, the one who has become this thread's resident naysayer (albeit unintentionally and apologetically!) think that this would be a completely proper way to reach out to Adult Swim in the hopes of getting the Ocean Kai dub on the air. I say go for it!

Re: How do you ''see'' the forum?

Both. On the one hand, most of the people on this forum are adults, so it's logical that discussions would be more analytical in nature. On the other hand, it's a website about a show/manga aimed at children that was meant to be a fun adventure story, not a deep analysis on the nature of humanity. Q...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

Even if they went with DB first, there's no reason to think it still wouldn't have been a big success. The issue isn't that it wasn't DBZ, it's issue was that it was put on at a time when the target audience wasn't awake on channels few watched. No question that the timeslots didn't help. However--...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

It’s almost like they had no business dubbing the show. Oh don't get me wrong, there are plenty of solid arguments to be made that they weren't a good candidate. However, dealing with the reality that they were the ones dubbing the show, I think they made a bad artistic decision, but great business...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

No it was incompetence plain and simple. No other dub was that stupid. There was no reason to skip ahead to Z. The incompetence is skipping 1/3rd of the story. I fully admit to being very cynical here, but I actually understand their logic and don't think it was stupid. Don't get me wrong, as a fan...

Re: What is the story behind the Westwood Dub?

I wonder who saved money by using the Vancouver cast, though. The reason I say that is because the Westwood dub was a union dub (using ACTRA, the Canadian union), whereas FUNimation's dub was and continues to be a non-union dub. Maybe it was a case of the Vancouver actors being more expensive, but t...

Re: Kikuchi Kai: Is the music quality better?

One thing I noticed (but I watched Kai only by streaming wabsites + excerpts on youtube) is that these BGMs from Kikuchi in Kai seem pretty low pitched, compared to the original, that sounds often almost half a tone lower. It's disturbing, because when DBZ was on french television, it was exactly t...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

I mean, without access to FUNimation's sales data, I don't think there's any official way to show a correlation between the rise of TFS and a revival of Dragon Ball's popularity. That said, it wouldn't surprise me. If Thing A and Thing B are related, it only stands that one would remind you of the o...

Re: Vic Mignogna

One thing that’s particularly amusing to me is how quickly they turned against Monica Rial. I do think it's important to note that who we're talking about when we say "they"...because really, there are two groups of "they"s here. Yes, there are some fans of Vic who are having a hard time coming to ...

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

Part of me wonders if Netflix is actually able do that, regardless of whether they want to or not. It would depend on the specifics of FUNimation's existing agreement with Toei regarding Kai's digital distribution rights in the UK and Ireland.

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

If you ask me, this dub has more of a chance at this point of being leaked online than airing on TV. It's been almost 10 years since it would've been recorded & it's nearing 10 years passed where Kai was relevant, so unless they wanna do an anniversary airing, I don't see it happening. I took a bri...

Re: FUNi's SE and JPN BGM Broadcast quality?

Clarity of the audio aside, there was the additional problem of inconsistent levels. It varied greatly from episode to episode just how loud the music was. In some episodes it was gloriously loud, while in others it was so quiet you could hardly hear it...and "hardly" was downgraded to "can't" whene...
