Dear Lord...

I know realize how bad hell will be. XDDDDDDD

How horrid...this ranks up with some pretty bad dubs I've seen...XD
I really, really need to get back into the habit of posting.

I'm getting them purely for comical value. I can sync the audio to my DragonBox and make a version with excellent video and comical quality ;)

I can only find the UK dubs of movies 2, 3, and 4 on amazon.uk.

Anyone know where I could get the rest (if this group did anymore)? Or I should I just stop here? :P

*is gonna order movies 2 and 3 in a week*

Man, the company is going to get this huge surge of business from us Daizex goers and start up dubbing again...oh, the possibilities.

Ah, hell!! Why did I even mention that these movies can be found at Amazon UK?! Dammit!! This is what happens when I'm being helpful. I gotta agree with Duo though, by purchasing these crappy movies we just might convince whatever the hell studio which dubs these movies, to finish dubbing movies #10-13. The shit hitting the fan continues.

Man, I think even the grainy video that the DVDs of these dubs probably have, are too good for them. These things aren't worthy of getting such a V.I.P treatment. I think if the original Pioneer dubs of the first three DBZ movies had the DragonBox quality, now that would've been something really cool. But yeah, as far as the comical absurdity goes, these U.K dubs are a win. But when spending 20-25 GBPs apiece on something that bad, I don't know if it's a good idea.

It ended there. However, I've got quite a few recordings from Toonami UK. People watching Dragonball Z for the first time must've got a really bad impression.

By the way, is it me or are all the main villains (Tullece, Slug and Cooler) voiced by the same guy? XD
Movies 1 through 9 and the Bardock & Trunks Specials have been released over here, not in the right order.
I have all of them on DVD, and some on VHS. :)

Sure the voices may be bad, but at least they kept the original music.
So it's not all bad, in my opinion. :wink:

I'd have to thank you very much for making this clip. I've watched this over and over again and I couldn't stop laughing.

Timo has been making clips of scenes in motion...They look even better.

After doing all of the converting, I could buy one DBZ R2 single with the price I'm getting 2 of these dvds at. :x

Comedy or quality? Hmmmm....

Quality, man. Go with the quality. If you need comedy, there's always a MAD magazine, or the early volumes of DB manga.

A small plus to this dub is that Solid State Scouter was played in full on British television when the Bardock special aired.
Where's the beef?

I visited the site, and all it had was a piture of the cast and some trailers.
For your general amusement I remember all the PR about it. The press release you can find a copy here: http://www.digital.anime.org.uk/news/20030924.html
Was posted on a few UK sites, some of which had a competition run by the companies PR people.
I actually won a copy of the DVD and Boudokai 1 I think, but guess what?
They never ever sent them. ;(

Oh and there are no cast credits since they showed the three movies and the Bardock special on Toonami UK with this dub.

Also watch out efore you buy since covers, movie titles and descriptions are switched throughout the releases.
Jord doesn't have a avatar because the combination of Jord and a equally cool avatar would cause the universe to implode.

Oh it is so bad, it is like a car wreck, you can't look away. They added the intro song from Final Fantasy 7 into the movie, can't get more classic then that!

Piccolo being called "Big Green". Did anyone riot overthere because of the dub? I would certainly start one with this dub.

This dub is just...no comment.

Personally, I don't really care about posting full movies, but you should watch out. VegettoEX is really big on piracy. I'd rather you don't get in any trouble, because you seem to be one of the most active members, even though you just joined recently.

Anyways, back on topic. Yep... It was horrible, really horrible.

Oh my god...those are so horrendous that I must own them! I could not stop laughing. What were they thinking? Have they even seen a single episode of DragonBall? But seriously, I have to buy them on DVD.
