We Got the Intros to 2 more character voices, both from Universe 10 as expected.

I already heard Rumush in the Pre-Fight episode, but tonight we got to hear U10 Warrior Mulithim and The Angel of U10 Kusu!

I got say that Kusu's Voice Actress suprised me, she did a FAR more mature voice then I thought that they would do for her :think: , so it was strange hearing such more mature style of voice coming from Kusu.

For Mulithim, I am certain that with him uttering BROTHER at least 2 time in his sentences, they where going for a Hulk Hogan homage for his character, which in a funny way fits, so I found it Fun to have a Homage of Hogan in Mulithim! :lol:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FINALLY, Next Week is the Premiere of My Girl Brianne/Ribrianne to the Super Funmation Mythos with Veronica Taylor as her Voice!

I Can't Wait for Next Week, Beyond Hyped! :mrgreen: :clap:

"God of Destruction" now and they've reverted back to "senzu bean". For the love of god, just have to accept we'll have inconsistent terms in the dub I guess.

"God of Destruction" never went away, though. I'm pretty sure it's been used in English marketing of the series. Hell, it was used in the Battle of Gods dub, wasn't it? And "Senzu" is literally short for "Senzu Bean." I don't see how they're being inconsistent with these terms when they've used both off & on for years now.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

It's nice rewatching this dub when the episodes are good. While it was cool to hear Caulifla in the last ep, it also meant putting up with the rest of the offensive garbage in the A-plot again. If anything, having it in your own language makes it worse. This episode was more fun. The advantage this time around is that Goku and Gohan aren't voiced by the same person so there's less AT-AT-AT-AT-AT-AT-AT.

Also has anyone else noticed Kyle Hebert really laying on the edge since Gohan got his Ultimate form back? I'm half expecting them to contrive a reason for him to say "Fight you? No, I'm here to kill you" again.

I guess so if you have to make shit up just to find something to hate about a dub that's really good, all things considered.

Need I once again remind you all how lucky we are that we have a somewhat competent dub compared to Pokemon’s. Want a bad dub, watch that. An episode just got banned because of a stupid reason. At least DBS keeps the Japanese music unlike Pokémon.
Yes thank you! It's absolutely painful being a Pokémon fan not only how bad the dub is but there is no Japanese legal alternative to support.

Everyone giving shit to FUNi yet somehow forget that FUNi are even re translating the subs instead of using the Toei one's, no more "Supreme Kai sama" or "King Kai Fist" all that on top of providing the Japanese track for sub fans. But a dub something that is optional has a few innocuous lines and it's the end of the world.

It seems to me people are wanting there to be some controversy so they can complain, every time there are pages and pages of over reaction and hyperbole over a couple lines in an episode. It's a bit ridiculous at this point especially now people know what they're in for why stick around? You have your version stick to that.

I hope to god there is sub screening for the new movie so we get less of this. Who am I kidding people will still flock to dub screenings and look for things to complain about and we'll get pages and pages on how Broly's grunting is different to the Japanese...
Corrected for some incorrect grammar. WOW, this is hypocritical. You're going to shit on people who complain about innocuous changes in a dub, yet complain that names aren't being used, or are being used inconsistently with substitutions? Jesus, man. Be consistent with your opinions.
Baggie_Saiyan wrote:See the problem I have is this thread only blows up when there is "controversy" then all of a sudden everyone wants to chime in, when instances like the Dr Slump episode which was fantastic instead of getting pages and pages on that we get pages and pages on "star of the show" or "make the donuts" one line that lasts a few seconds. Some folks just seem quick to criticize but not praise, that seemed the same with the series itself (which is why I just stayed away from the episode discussion threads).

I am not gonna say every decision they made is good but I also don't think any decision they made is really that bad to warrant reactions. After the line I was like "oh" and that was it forgotten about then come on here and people acting like it is the end of the world. This is the same show in which Toei made the Yamcha mean into an actual thing or need I remind you of #100 it's like they didn't have any shame. Nothing FUNi have done is even remotely as bad as that, nothing as remotely as bad as "lame show" in Kai 2.0.
Again, hypocritical. Man, do you care about dubs being inconsistent, or do you not? Make up your mind.

Jesus guys, take a minute to actually read the guy's posts instead of jumping to play "GOTCHA!" on him. He's complaining about inconsistency within the dub itself. The dub has flipflopped from "destroyer" to "God of Destruction" and "Senzu" to "Senzu bean." It's an annoying bit of inconsistency that doesn't have much to do with accuracy. You want the show you're watching to at least have consistent terminology.

Senzu isn’t “literally” short for Senzu Bean. Senzu translated means “Sage Bean.” Senzu bean is “Sage Bean Bean.” It’s like the whole Master Roshi thing where Roshi means old master, so translated it would be “Master Old Master.” The dub has done this weird non-translation thing multiple times.

So... my fiance and I won a trip to see the dub premiere tomorrow night! We fly out tomorrow morning and we'll get back Friday evening. I would have posted about it earlier, but the last few days have been frantic with real life stuff and trying to get ready for this trip so I've only told friends and family so far. Still, we're really excited to go and I'll try to give my first impressions of the film and its dub once we get back home Friday!

You want the show you're watching to at least have consistent terminology.
Except "Destroyer" is literally a part of "God of Destruction." It's a synonym & gets the same message across, with "God of Destruction" being his job title & "Destroyer" being the descriptor. It is consistent as long as the words are similar or are used interchangeably. In the English dubs of Battle of Gods, Res F, Super, & the games, it is. On top of that, everyone refers to Beerus as "God of Destruction" outside of the show. It's like Death Note's dub using "Shinigami" & "Death God" early on before entirely going with just the former so the audience is familiar with it.

Except most people don't know that unless they look it up. To most of the English-speaking world, "Senzu" is just short for "Senzu Bean," even if it's redundant to add the "bean" part, regardless of translation. It's like the dub saying "Grand Zeno, the Omni King," which is redundant because the second part is literally the translation of the word "Zeno," which they've used interchangeably in the dub. They're also relying on people having watched the older dubs of at least Kai & the movies, since those are the dubs that get the most consistent praise from Dragon Ball fans, as well as being the more recent ones, where they've previously used them. With Roshi, not a lot of people who speak just English & watch the dubs even know that "Roshi" translates to "Master," so it doesn't come off as redundant either.

I'm not saying everyone HAS to see things this way, but freaking out over supposed inconsistencies in a dub (which these really aren't if you've even remotely been paying attention to the dubs of this franchise) isn't really something that makes sense. I get the criticism of some of the translation choices, or some of the off lines, but these really aren't inconsistencies to me.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

Not sure if this is offtopic but...Am I the only one who felt somewhat disappointed with some of the voices of the Dragon Ball Super characters:

Magetta: I think he was fine with his Japanese voice, he should had kept it as he was un-intelligible anyways. The American robotic monotone voice is too distracting and clashes with his emotional personality.
Quitela: I feel they could had done better but it does make him less sympathetic so that's good. His laugh is also the best thing about this depiction.

Rumshi: His voice is to similar to Gowasu to the point I can't tell them appart if I had my eyes closed. The voice actor should had put more effort to make him sound like his Japanese and Mexican counterpart or give him a more unique voice.
Cus: She doesn't sound like a kid. But then again, in the manga she was said to be the oldest of the angel siblings but I feel that her anime depiction is too different because of her behaviour is more child like.
