I'll put it this way. I have the DBZ Dragon Boxes and I'm working on getting all of Kai. I'm pretty much done getting DBZ.

But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

Have you guys considered that the product description may just be a mistake and that there's not gonna be any redubbing done at all?

Remember when Dragon Ball GT Season 1 was listed as having 3 discs? Or when Dragon Ball Season 1 was listed as being widescreen?

This does seem a bit odd, I think I'l wait until we get an official word from Funimation or Ocean. My guess is that it could be Kai and the person who made the listing is just using some fan made cover he/she found on the net until it gets an official cover. Still if it is the Ocean dub of Z it would be nice for the fans of Ocean to be able to get the dub they like without having to hunt down a dusty old DVD or VHS.

Also, I hope we get more info on this. Maybe FUNimation needs the money? :lol:

EDIT: My friend just came from the Katsucon FUNimation panel and no word...just in case anyone was wondering.

It would be funny if this was a bootleg and the "redubbing" was just some bad fan dubber.

If something is truly perfect, that's IT! The bottom line becomes there is no room for imagination! No space for intelligence or ability or improvement! Do you understand? To men of science like us, perfection is a dead end, a condition of hopelessness. Always strive to be better than anything that came before you but not perfect! Scientist's agonize over the attempt to achieve perfection! That's the kind of creatures we are! We take joy in trying to exceed our grasp, in trying to reach for something that in the end, we have to admit may in fact be unreachable!"

If this is true, I'm pretty stoked for this, I haven't seen (the "good" part of the) Ocean dub in years and memories of it are fading so this will be a nice preservation for those of us who don't really care for looking for an affordable price on the old Pioneer DVDs on eBay. There's nothing about this that really screams "fake" or "bootleg" to me, putting "Dragon, Dragon, Rock The Dragon" seems like an effective marketing strategy to show what this is and who it's meant for.

In regards to the whole "re-dubbing" business, I have a few theories:

1. They're only going back to fix some blatant dubbing errors (i.e.: Bardock being a great scientist, Vegeta being Grandpa Gohan's killer and other such silliness)

2. Ian James Corlett has been back with Ocean for a while now AFAIK, so he might do over Kelamis' stuff in the Namek arc for consistency's sake (unlikely, as it kind of defeats the purpose of this being a nostalgic cash-in, but didn't Funi kind of screw that up themselves w/ the season sets?)

3. This will be the first wholly uncut release of the Ocean dub, with additional dubbing done for cut scenes (again, unlikely, but would be cool).

Or it could be a mistake, like the 29 episode listing, when the box seems to say 26 episodes (which I believe is accurate), since the cover also says "broadcast version".

I was buying that too until attitudefan brought up his discussion with Brian Drummond, from the sound of that it seems like my first theory could be likely since I don't think anybody would be stoked to redo a few lines from something you did almost 20 years ago.

Let's say this is real, Could I play the DVD's on my US DVD or Blu-ray player? :?
Edit- wait, is this being released in Canada?
The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128

It should as FUNimation's DVDs are typically Region 1 (and 4 for some releases).

Well, Drummond was/is being weary of telling me everything. I think he doesn't want to get in trouble by mentioning too much. He told me to wait till around March. I'll ask him if he has only rerecorded SOME lines or a whole series worth. But they are done with the dub. He's more active with my little pony and Xmen... lame. (bleh, my little pony. That's just uncool).

See, either we take his first comment literally when I first talked to him, which seems more likely to do that as of now.

However, we still have McNeil telling us they've done Kai. Now, maybe, just maybe, Drummond is unexcited by revisiting an old series.

I guess another possibility, though pretty far fetched, would be that there are two Ocean releases on the way. We could be getting one with the broadcast dub/cut, and another with a new dub, and the description on AAAnime could have them accidentally switched, which could explain the discrepancy between the cover art and description.

Or, the new Ocean Kai is called DBZ broadcast version, so that people can pick it up so it will not be confused with DBZ Kai (FUNi).

Still, I think, as the original, it should be the default dub. Not FUNi's.

I hope that there was an uncut version that we never seen :P also if they release this would it be the same as the older release or would this have slightly better quality?

I just don't see a new dub for the old Z series being made.

While you have a point. In essence, why release an unfinished product at all? I mean, if they even include the later ocean dub, there is a huge gap.
This is really awesome and strange at the same time. Especially since Ocean Kai is so secretive. But, we do need better copies of the ocean dub.

However, I'll totally be getting it :D
