Re: Sean Schemmel confirms Buu Saga dubbing in interview

They should keep most of it, but cut out Ebisawa's parts, because not only were those some of the lamest parts (crappy beam struggle), but everything else had solid animation. I haven't read the manga of that fight, and I've heard it lasts only a few panels, but at least Yamamuro's stuff must remai...

It's more than "a few extra punches and kicks". They took something that was barely even a scuffle in the manga and managed to drag it out for about 2 episodes.

Re: Sean Schemmel confirms Buu Saga dubbing in interview

I hope they'll keep as much of the Goku vs Majin Vegeta fight as they can. There's where Toei truly stepped up and got what people REALLY wanted to see. I really don't understand the appeal of the Goku vs Majin Vegeta filler at all. We already saw Goku and Vegeta fight, do we need to see it again? ...

Re: DBZ Abridged > Kai

I never understood the appeal of DBZA. If I wanted dub bashing I'd read penguintruth's comments. The voices are mostly stiff imitations of either the Ocean or Funi VAs and any voice that isn't a parody is mostly a stock stereotype voice that a lot of people could pull off with little effort. The "hu...

Re: Amazon.ca is done with the Dragon Box 2 permanently.

A little bit of a cropping and not being able to see a bit of sky or hair changes nothing at all about the show when everyody only focuses on the middle of the screen anyway. Nothing important will be lost because of a fraction of the top and bottom of the screen is missing, it's the exact same vie...

Re: Biggest DB disappointment

To the above almost-argument, pencil me down as someone who was disappointed in both the Funi/Saban dub and Drummond's Vegeta. For quite a while I had heard how much better the Funi/Saban dub was compared to the in-house Funi dub and so one day out of curiosity I bought a bunch of Pioneer singles fr...

Re: Anime Pacing?

I still think it suffered from the slow pace, how many episodes did it take Goku to get to Kaio's planet ? He started running in Episode 6 and finally arrived at the end of Episode 18, so 12 episodes. 12 grueling episodes of Goku dicking around, Gohan befriending uninteresting creatures and kids wh...

Re: Anime Pacing?

I'm probably in the minority who considers DB's pacing to be just as abominable as Z's. The first 28 episodes are well-paced, but could use some tightening if an actual "Dragon Ball" Kai is ever produced, but after that it's a nightmare. Three specific arcs come to mind: Red Ribbon Army, 22nd Tenkai...

Re: Why do so many American fans hate Kai?

To echo what penguintruth said, is the hatred of Kai that big? It has an 8.0 on tv.com, an 8.5 on imdb, and 3.7 stars out of 5 for the 1st part on amazon. It apparent did well on Nicktoons and obviously did well enough international to warrant the final arc being made. It had to have sold well to wa...

Re: Have Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece improved upon DB/Z?

Dragonball is the daddy, Not really. Hokuto no ken and even Mighty Atom could be considered the founders of Shonen anime but there's no denying Dragon Ball's impact. IMO all of the "Big 3" plus Dragon Ball's anime are absolute garbage in terms of filler and pacing. I honestly hate them all. FFS how...

Re: Why did the Westwood dub contain extra edits?

I've noticed that in addition to extra footage there were script edits as well. Such as still dancing around death until the midway the Boo arc and other minor little things like in the "Evil Kid Buu!" episode during Kaioshin's flashback where Buu nearly kills Bibidi, in the FUNimation dub, Bibidi s...

You know what's weird? They released those Yu Yu Hakusho Blu-rays like almost 3 years ago, despite those actually being from the company that made the show, FUNi didn't fuck with them at all. YYH was made during Z's run in Japan, so I don't get why FUNi decides to fuck with Z so much. It's weird be...

Re: Favorite voice for Vegeta?

1. Ryo Horikawa's Z peformance. Smug, regal, and always had this "I'm better than you" tinge to his voice. The definitive voice of the "Prince of Sai-yan". 2. Christopher R. Sabat's Kai performance. He's definitely grown since 1999. Starting out as a bad impression of a voice wrong for Vegeta in the...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-Ray

The only thing that could ever make me buy the Dragon Ball series on Blu-Ray is a higher sound quality for the Japanese voice track and Kikuchi score. Otherwise I have no intention of seeing some badly drawn, badly drawn-out farce of an anime in HD. And to echo what others have been saying, Dragon B...

Kirby also did it if I'm correct. Maybe they was following the JPN Audio :lol: I'm pretty sure it was Jillian Michaels, the actress who took over for Gohan in Episode 166/151 and went on to do Goten, who took over for Kid Goku in flashbacks after Kelamis left. At least that's what I've heard. If an...

Colleen Clinkenbeard. I've said it before and I'm not afraid to say it again, I think she fits Goku better than she did Gohan. IMO her Saiyan arc Gohan sounded too spritely and rowdy.

Part of me wonders if it is Cox, though...the thing that keeps throwing me for a loop is that Kirbopher said it would be somebody we didn't expect, and that our initial reaction would be one of surprise. I could see Juliani doing Goku, but I keep second-guessing myself because of the "someone we wo...

The Japanese voice actors aren't getting any younger and Toei isn't about to retire their cash cow anytime, so what does this mean for the future of voice acting for the Japanese part of the franchise? I'm worried because...
