Re: What are the odds FUNimation will leave Ultra Instinct’s theme untouched?

I'm more worried about Limit Break x Survivor. They've been dubbing all the openings and nearly all of them they get the original artist back to sing it in English, which never works out well. To be fair, that's only because the original singer's English version already existed. I don't think an En...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Dragon Ball (OG)

I recall reading on this forum long ago that Funimation did intend to just cut their DBZ dialog up to match Kai, but Vale (that's the voice of Future Trunks, rite?) insisted it was a once-in-a-life-time chance to make some-thing DB related that's actually accurate to the original and high-quality. ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Um... They have a partially dubbed version of the Dr. Slump opening in a promo video for tonight's episode. I'm almost certain they'll have a full version in the episode. Edit: I'm sure it's pretty clear to those familiar with her singing voice, but it's sung by Brina Palencia, the voice of Arale in...

In fact, doesn't Funimation do both subtitled and dubbed screenings for most of their theatrical runs of anime films? Making Dragon Ball the exception? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: "Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan" & more coming to U.S. Theaters later this year!

Before you get on my case for reading too far into it, I know that none of this is very likely and that they are probably referring to the Funimation remasters. I know that . However, I want to believe that they are actually redubbing these things and that this isn't just a public screening of our ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters" FUNimation English Dub Official Announcement and Discussion Thread

For the broadcast.... did they go with Flow's Cha-La-Head-Cha-La as the background music for the final scene of the final episode, or did they go with Norihito Sumitomo's original BGM? They used Cha-La. While I didn't see it live myself, but I saw several Twitter reactions of people getting excited...

Re: "Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan" & more coming to U.S. Theaters later this year!

I pretty much feel the same. The only reason I was excited for this was because of the prospect of seeing them subtitled in theaters. Not only is this disappointing, it doesn't bode well for the upcoming Super movie. Welp, they just replied to me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/fathomevents/status/...

Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

My vote goes to Kai as the better dub. By a country mile. The script, even in The Final Chapters, generally stays truer to the spirit of the original with less added jokes and whatnot. I also find the performances to be better - in Super it generally feels like the cast is rushing to meet broadcast ...

So it looks like Toei's made an official announcement on Twitter linking to an article with some details: https://twitter.com/ToeiAnimation/status/1010200558022488064 They're saying "remastered," so I'm assuming that this will be Funimation's Bluray footage.

Re: "Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan" & more coming to U.S. Theaters later this year!

There's probably a reason for the Japanese screenings this time around when they didn't do them for Battle of Gods and Resurrection F. Lately, FUNimation has been giving movie-goers the option of either watching their screenings in their English-dubbed or original language formats; they've done so ...

Are they seriously going to show the dub for Bardock: Father of Goku in theatres? Because that dub was not good at all. Crossing my fingers and hoping that they take this opportunity to re-dub it. Seems like a really good time to do it; premiere the new dub in theaters and drum up hype for a new DV...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Movies and Specials

I already put down my thoughts on the OG DB movies in the DB Redub thread: f nothing else, they should at least redub the other two movies in the original DB movie trilogy - while they're notable in that they're among Funimation's first in-house dubs and deserve to be preserved for history's sake, t...

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Dragon Ball (OG)

I'm gonna say yes. The original dub, while miles ahead of the Z dub, is plagued with problems in both the acting and writing departments. Having a dub that I feel comfortable showing to friends who have never seen the show would be a dream come true, and as a huge fan of Colleen Clinkenbeard I'd lik...

Re: What would you say was Funimation’s best (or least bad) pre-Kai dub of something Dragon Ball related?

Since you're not including the Pioneer dubs of Movies 1-3 (which are the best way to watch them in English if you ask me), Movie 8's dub is probably the best. The script for that one is pretty spot on, and it's even better these days with the Japanese music option. I also think Vic Mignogna's Broly ...

Re: Turner expands Toonami to Africa!

The lack of digital edits makes sense to me considering that Super hasn't had much to censor visually. Most of the worst stuff is language, pervy jokes, and scenes of people stabbing each other, each of which would be taken care of with hard cuts. Plus, Toonami Africa is probably a lower priority ma...

Quick update on the Toonami Africa Broadcast. It seems that they got to at least Episode 46 since they uploaded a clip of the Copy Vegeta fight to their official Facebook, complete with a language edit. Just posting it here for the handful of people interested in the Funimation edited dub.

Re: Dragon Ball Super International News & Speculation (Read First Post)

I noticed that the opening post is unsure if Toonami Africa and the edited Funimation dub ever got past Episode 26. Well, going by this page of the Toonami Africa website , which has clips from the Champa Arc, I'd say they got to at least Episode 33. I wouldn't be surprised if they got even further ...
