Isn't that accurate to the original Japanese version? Because she's actually supposed to have the same hick accent Goku has; her being more prim and proper is actually a dubism :lol: .

Sounding like a drunk with a smoker voice isn't at all related to sounding like a country girl. Also, Cranz is a Texan, so if she just gave Chichi a Texan accent, THAT would've been fantastic. Anyway, I don't know how old Chichi is in Super, but maybe they thot "she's old now, so you'd better give her a ragged voice".
