Goddammit, this is what I get for posting at 3:30AM.8000 Saiyan wrote:I'm sorry but Sabat isn't on the same level of McNeil when it comes to screaming or even Drummond. There were moments in Kai where he didn't sound very good when it came to screaming.
I meant Brian Drummond and Scott McNeil. Those two are like the kings of screaming.
In Dragon Ball, at least, Scott McNeil and Brian Drummond are miles beyond Sabat in terms of screams. While basically everything else about Ocean vs Funimation can be boiled down to opinions, Drummond and McNeil have always blown Sabat out of the water with screams in Dragon Ball.EnergizerConvoy wrote:This would beg to differ.

I'm really looking forward to more of McNeil's Piccolo the most. But yeah, Drummond's Vegeta is easily second-up from that.
I wonder if Don Brown is back as King Kai this time around... I do hope so.
I think it'll be "Over 8000", and that Drummond will deliver it in the oldschool way(Over eight thouSAAAAAAAAANND).8000 Saiyan wrote:Since the Ocean dub of Kai is supposed to be accurate, Drummond will likely say 8000 instead of 9000.
As much as I can see what the Funimation uncut way(Over eight thousandAAAARHHGHGHHHHGHHH) was trying to do, I always thought adding the extended grunt to the end to cover that open mouth at the end of the line was a pretty clunky way of doing it, so I imagine we'll get the full "THOUSAAAAAAAND" scream.
It's possible Drummond might have pushed for them to use "9000" instead of "8000", but I dunno. To be honest, 8000 vs 9000 isn't a big deal to me at this point, what matters is the delivery of the line, and I imagine Drummond will nail it as always, and it will be awesome.
Man, Peter Kelamis is such a nice guy. This gave me some warm fuzzies.Dark Vegeta-Sama wrote:Peter Kelamis: I left the role when the show wasn't able to continue recording with me being in Los Angeles half the time as well as being busy with other work.
As far as "dubbing" goes, it is the least paying of animation work. Their budgets usually don't allow the actor to "phone patch" in their work. You are either able to physically make it to the gig or not.
If you tend to be a busy actor, unfortunately "dubbing" falls farther down the list than say on-screen work or "Pre-lay" recordings.
The part was fun to do and the people involved were great to work with, but I moved on. Kirby is a friend of mine and the show is lucky to have someone as good as him available to do the role.
In any case, that does clear that up. And with this, and Ian Corlett apparently leaving over pay disputes about screaming, which may still apply now(?), I can see why Ocean decided to only re-audition Kirby out of the three previous Vancouver voices of Goku.
I do wonder if they also re-auditioned Jeremiah Yurk and/or Jeffrey Watson.
