An estrogen male, perhaps.

It's not just a man, it's a ripped, alpha male warrior. You're not gonna hear a higher pitched, scratchy voice coming out of that.

I heard that Bardock clip a long time ago and I really like it. I like the original sound too, so I can't really say which I'd prefer. That said, I think the altered version of Goku's voice sounds TERRIBLE. There's no one I could deal with that. The voice itself isn't really the problem, but I couldn't stand hear that come from Goku's mouth.

I want to ask a question for pretty much anyone that can answer it: Did they have the technology almost 30 years ago to make a pitched down voice sound natural like in the Bardock clip? It seems to me that it would sound awful if they tried that back then (which is what I would tell everyone saying they should have done this from the start if I had the answer). Pretty much any altered voice I can think of from that time sounds very alien.

I'm curious what you're take on Jonathan Joestar's voice is/would be :lol: (granted he has a male voice)

He sounds okay for the most part. At times he can be a bit nasally with his battle cries and stuff but he usually sounds like a grown man when just speaking.

He ain't no Joseph or Jotaro but no one is lol

I think it sounds pretty cool. I bet it sounds unnatural to a native Japanese speaker, though.

I think it speaks to her talent, that the only thing holding her back from sounding 100% male is pitch. I'm used to it enough to where in his natural voice I don't hear a woman at all, but there really isn't any clues I can hear that it's a woman lowered in pitch. And to be fair, plenty of males have unusually high voices--that's kind of always been my "head canon" with it. Goku's family line, aside from Raditz I guess, tends to have higher pitched voices. I've known families in real life like that. And considering they're aliens, to me it's 100% a non-issue.

Someone did actually.
Edit: better quality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZq46qY ... e=youtu.be
Had this been Goku's Japanese Adult voice, I would have had no problem with it. I actually like it!

It may not sound unique, but I bet it wouldn't be made fun of by Western audiences.
DRAGON BALL IS THE KING OF (Fighting) ANIME!!!!!!! In my opinion, at least... :think:

My reaction to anything about Dragon Ball post-2013 that I don't like and/or is stupid. :P

Id be surprised if they didn't. It could potentially sound even better because they would of been working with the source and not some compressed audio.
Bulma is awesome... but chi-chi is best waifu :wink:

They had the capabilities to do this since the beginning of talkies in the late 1920s if not earlier. The 1980s and 1990s is already in the tech age, even though for many it feels like a bygone time, these things were possible then.
My favourite art style (and animation) outside Toriyama who worked on Dragon Ball: Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, Masaki Satō, Minoru Maeda, Takeo Ide, Hisashi Eguchi, Katsumi Aoshima, Tomekichi Takeuchi, Masahiro Shimanuki, Kazuya Hisada
