Re: FUNI Super dub - What are your wishes?

Well my wishes may never happen. 1.Replace Doc Morgan and bring back Kyle Herbert. I'm sorry but there is no comparison between the two. You're right, there isn't. Doc Morgan sounds like the calm, wise narrator one would expect for cheesy martial arts parody like Dragon Ball, and Kyle Herbert sound...

Re: Toei!Chi-Chi - not funny

I don't know why everyone says that Chichi is only a bitch in the anime and that she's written incorrectly when she wasn't nice in the manga either. http://i.imgur.com/PCy7cnJ.jpg She's chewing out her good-for-nothing, dead-beat of a husband for wanting to train their 6 year old child for 3 years ...

Re: Toei!Chi-Chi - not funny

I think the problem with Toei!Chichi started when they recasted her from Mayumi Sho to Naoko Watanabe. Sho's Adult Chichi sounded like a warm-loving mother/wive with a hickish accent to her like Nozawa's Goku who can get angered at times, but only because she's concerned for her child. Watanabe's Ch...

Re: If GT took place in one of the other 12 universes

It'd be an incredible waste of potential. If they want to keep GT "canon", then just say it's somehow an alternate timeline and that's it. If it's a parallel universe, then that would mean all the other ten universes are parallel universes as well. Why restrict yourself to twelve if they're not goi...

Re: Anybody already stopped watching Super?

Why are people complaining about the pacing :?: its pretty normal for a dragon ball series, That's precisely why some are complaining. We thought maybe with no ongoing manga for the anime to be afraid of catching up with, we could finally have a Dragon Ball series where the pacing isn't complete cr...

Re: Opinions on Ian Corlett as Goku

Corlett's Goku can easily be summed in two words that also pretty much describe every other role he's been in: generic and emotionless. Don't get me wrong, Corlett isn't a bad actor by any means, he never given a "painful-to-the-ears"-type performance (that I'm aware) but pretty much every performan...

That's... quite the bold statement. It's a true statement though. Regardless of what one's personal feelings toward a particular filler is, none of it adds anything to the story.

Re: Did Toei make the right move?!

I think the original Dragon Ball anime should remain untouched. It was perfectly handed in my opinion, as far as animation and pacing goes. Everything past Episode 28 says hi, and even the first 28 episodes themselves could use some pruning. The Red Ribbon Army, 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai, and the Picc...

Re: Will GT Really Become "Lost" This Time?

Not exactly. Different timelines. And nothing is tossed anyway. The problem with that is there's currently no logical time-split to put GT in a separate timeline from the new BOG/FnF/DBS timeline. To my knowledge, there's only four timelines in the series so far. The 1st Timeline ended with 1st For...

Re: Kai Episode 147 (05 April 2015)

The story wasn't completed. That's why they needed filler. Toei, and all of Japanese anime really, should just learn what seasons/series are and start doing that instead of forcing themselves to crank the damn thing out year-round constantly trying to stretch a 14-18 manga chapter that's mostly act...

Re: Kai Episode 147 (05 April 2015)

Well, on those 12-13 pages, more stuff usually happens in the Buu arc. I'd say an average Buu arc chapters has roughly the same amount of stuff happening as a chapter from any other arc of the series. I'm just not seeing it. Well, no. That`s not a fact. It's over-glorified fan-fiction lazily shoved...

Re: Kai Episode 147 (05 April 2015)

The fights in the manga are to short so the filler in this case is necessary. No they're not. The Vegetto fight was short because its only purpose was for Vegetto to piss Buu off enough to absorb him. The fight didn't necessitate two whole episodes to itself; if Toei had done it right it could've e...

Re: Petition for the rest of the Toonami dub post-RTD Editio

The only part of the original TV dub that would warrant a second box set is the "Captain Ginyu, Freeza, and Garlic Jr. Sagas" (episodes 54/68 - 102/117) as the difference between the scripts and voices are different enough to justify a second RTD boxset's existence. From the "Trunks Saga" (episode 1...

The ones where he isn't impersonating the previous voice actor whose voice was completely unsuitable for Vegeta on every fundamental level.

Sorry if this counts as necro-posting, but after re-reading the wonderfully written OP, something caught my eye.

Honestly, do you believe that someone who looks like Goku would sound anything like that? The voice is not believable at all. It's not even "natural" either, because guys as big and strong as Goku do NOT sound like that. Agreed with OP. Goku as an adult sounds absolutely ridiculous in Japanese. He'...
