Marsters is doing a fantastic job, so well that Sean seems to emulate him a bit too much. He needs to stick to what he already has for Black.

I don't understand how anyone could seriously defend that joke of a line. The dub continues to disappointment me with stupid, unnecessary 4th wall breaking meta changes. STOP IT. Take your dub a bit more seriously for gods sake. Funi is actually somehow REGRESSING from the Kai dub.
To say it's anywhere near as bad as anything in the original Z dub is just plain hilarious, if anything the sub line is retardedly cringey.
"CRUMBLE INTO DUST", sorry but when ripping on opponents Vegeta generally doesn't resort to heightened language. The dub line makes wayyy more sense to come after the line before it. "You're the opening act", if anything the sub not giving Vegeta a response to that was cringey. I don't understand how anyone can defend the sub line vs the dub line unless you're just defending it because it's the sub.
I'm glad funi is doing changes to super's lines, because the sub takes itself wayy to seriously considering A. the circumstances B. How bad the writing is. It's ironic how now I trust Funi to write a better script and story than Toei animation, who pretty much just does stuff for the sake of selling toys at this point and become an utter joke.
Where did I say it was as bad as the original Z dub?
Second, I don't care how "bad" you think the script is. A dub that changes the script heavily is a bad dub in my book. There are VERY few exceptions where line changes should be made, those being awkwardly phrased sentences, jokes that don't make sense in English, cultural references that wouldn't make any sense, etc. Other than that, stick to the source material. I don't want them regressing and using their "artistic license" to alter the dialogue to their liking. That's not your job. Know your place as a dub. You are there to translate the story, not alter it.
I also don't even understand how you can say the sub "takes itself too seriously". I think it's the EXACT opposite. The show could use a little bit of grounded seriousness to create some tension and emotion for once. It's far TOO laid back in my opinion.
And lastly, I guess it comes down to taste, but I find "I'm the star of this damn show" 1000% more cringy than "Crumble into dust".

Also Goku sounded a lot like Rosé Black when he said "You got sloppy!" Really hope it's just a mistake and they fix it later on.
People say the original Z FUNI voice acting was terrible, and it was, but Schemmel's current take on Goku is simply bad.
Alright, let's calm down there. You might prefer his earlier performance, but his current performance is by no means "bad". In a world where there is truly terrible voice acting out there, let's not throw that around to a perfectly fine performance at worst.
