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...

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

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 ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Home Release Thread

That's a shame. As a purist, I like to have the original elements all intact, but I don't know if I can justify spending over $100 for a single Japanese Blu-ray set. I wonder if the digital releases on the Microsoft Store and the like have the original title cards and credits for the Japanese versi...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Home Release Thread

Do these Blu-rays have English text for the episode title cards and OPs/EDs, like they are broadcast on Toonami? I'm assuming there's only 1 video track, so they replaced the Japanese title cards and credits with the English ones. Unless perhaps there's a second track with the original title cards ...

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

So is Invincible now the dubs term for Immortal? If so why? Is this because of lip flaps? If I had to guess, it may be because they think using "immortal" will clash with their use of "mortal" to translate "ningen." Most people will probably get that the use of "immortal" refers to Zamasu's body in...

Re: Transitioning to the Japanese version (Z or Kai?)

While Z's presentation is certainly better, Kai is by no means a bad choice if you're concerned with the pacing. While Kikuchi Kai is a bit repetitive and badly placed at times, I don't think it's nearly as bad as most people say. I actually prefer it to Yamamoto, though I do still like that score, ...

Not as far as I know. Episode 1 exists on the Facebook livestream archive of the premiere they did (I think I shared it a few pages back), but the only other clips of it are the ones on the Toonami Africa site.

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

'Minister' and 'Priest' mean the same thing, it's highly likely it was just a lip-flap thing. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Ultra Instinct gets changed as well, since it'll be hard to get "Ul-tra-In-stinct" out of "Mi-gat-te-no-Go-ku-i." Big difference in syllables. We have heard them say "Ul...

When talking in church terms, "minister" and "priest" mean more or less the same thing. With that in mind, I don't think it's so much a change as it is another valid translation choice. Lip flaps may have been a factor, too.

Re: Why isn't Dragon Ball acknowledged more for its social commentary?

While I largely agree that Toriyama isn't really the type of author to consciously put deeper, socially relevant themes in his work, I wouldn't say that DB is completely devoid of it. In particular, there's a bit of class commentary during the Freeza arc. Toriyama said in this interview that Freeza ...

Dragon Ball V, with the V being pronounced like the letter, but the pun being on the Roman numeral. I borrowed the name idea from Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V, though I don't know how they pronounce it there. But yeah, it would technically be the fifth series storywise. This is counting Z and Kai because they te...
