19 years ago I was rushing home from school to watch DBZ on Cartoon Network, and today I've rushed home from work to watch DBS on Pop. I guess it's true the more things change the more they stay the same. :lol:

Episode 36: https://streamable.com/h46h7
Same old. Death references, swearing/rudeness and Bulma's throttling.

And after that, I decided that doing comprehensive dialogue comparisons was too much of a time sink and that we already have a very good idea of what the differences are. Finding actual cuts is much easier because you can simply line them up in an editor (after reversing/applying the PAL speedup) and scroll to where where they drift apart. I had hoped that there would be a semi-automatic way of doing this for the audio, but there isn't, so I'd been watching the full episode with both tracks playing (I had planned to line the audio up and invert one of the tracks, but this didn't work, presumably due to the downmixing and pitch correction not matching closely enough). I'll still be looking at what was cut, but the dialogue will be more of a skim-watch now.

Episode 37-39: https://streamable.com/omniv
  • Forever Dreaming is the Funi version, except for Episode 38/40 where it's kept Japanese.
  • 38's name is changed to accommodate Hit being "enforcer".
  • The more brutal attacks are toned down, again mostly close ups and prolonged attacks.
  • Vegeta coughing up blood and Goku leaving a mark Hit's cheek are cut, but blood smears can be seen in other shots.
  • Some re-wording to follow "excessive force" over "killing".
  • Vegeta's threat to Cabba is toned down and Whis' description of Hit's job is made less direct. Using "bounties" over targets implies that he only goes after criminals.
  • Goku's description of the Kaio Ken is changed for some reason. I assume this wasn't an intentional change.
  • A pre-recorded continuity announcer talked over the end of Goku vs Hit, coming in before the Narrator's last line.

And that's about the extent of it, other than a scene or two in the Future Trunks arc I believe.

You know though, it's pretty strange how bloodless DBS is in comparison to One Piece, especially since they aired side-by-side on Fuji TV. Some speculate that it's because OP has censorship standards that are "grandfathered" in somehow. But considering lots of other daytime kids/teens anime still have blood and violence in them, I'm leaning more towards the fact that DBS is marketed more towards international children's broadcasters (like Pop! here) than OP is, and so the toned-down violence is Toei's way of catering to their overseas clientele. *Still, Toei could have made two versions of the show, sort of like the Final Chapters of Kai, one with blood and whatnot that could run on TV in Japan and places like Adult Swim in the US, and another for kids channels like Pop, but we all know that Kai was a one off thing and that Toei is too lazy to do something like that.*
