Is Funimation's Edited Dub Still Airing? (And also, what about TFC's edited dub?)

Post by Robo4900 » Mon Apr 09, 2018 1:02 pm

I'm wondering if Funimation's edited dub of Kai is still airing anywhere?
And also, if Funimation's edited dub of Kai: Final Chapters has aired at all, since I haven't found any clips or caps of it online anywhere, and I haven't heard any info on it at all.
Complain to Funimation about the crappy 30th anniversary sets:

As it stands, the next time they release the show, they'll trot out the same excuses they made for why they made the 30th anniversary sets suck. Let's prevent that. Make your voice heard. It'll barely take you a minute or two to send an email, and it could make all the difference in the world. Worst case scenario, you wasted about as much time as you spent reading this message, but you spent it in an effort to improve a crappy situation.

I don't think regular Kai is airing anywhere on TV right now. As for The Final Chapters, Toonami only I believe, which would be the uncut (and possibly only) dub.
RIDER KIIIIIIICK!

I know Kai 1.0 is reairing in Japan right now, so Kai 1.0 is airing at least there. The big question is, are there any English-speaking countries currently airing it...?

You say Toonami... That's only Toonami US. There's also Toonami Africa, and I think Toonami India is still around for the moment...
Either way, I heard the edited Super dub is airing on Toonami Africa, so... I was wondering whether they were airing Kai or TFC too.
Mewzard wrote:(and possibly only) dub.
I seem to recall Sabat confirming its existence on Twitter at one point.
Either way, they almost certainly will have recorded an edited version. They did one for Super, they did one for Kai 1.0, so I don't see why TFC would be any different.

The only English speaking market to run TFC has been the USA. Funimation's inability to land a timely TV deal resulted in that show being old news by the time it finally started airing.

As far as I know, the original 98 episodes of Kai are not on any English TV channel anywhere. Toonami Asia/India ran Dragon Ball Z, not Kai.
"I like the money it brings in, but Dragon Ball Heroes is the worst. That's actually the real reason I decided to start working on new material. I was afraid Bandai would make something irredeemably stupid like Super Saiyan 4 Broly." - Akira Toriyama, made up interview, 2013.

They would air Kai on and off but it was the uncut version so it doesn't quite apply.
Was the hate for Kai largely unjustified?

The story of Kai's production is far more interesting than the actual product.

True, though that would air the French dub, not an English dub.

Yeah. And that's what it does - the edited version.

Yeah. I was specifically asking about the Funi edited dub, though.

And the edited French version is a different master compared to the edited Funi version
