Would you be interested in a dubbed version of Super DB Heroes?

Post by TheRed259 » Sun Mar 17, 2019 11:56 pm

Now that the series is getting better, would you be interested in a dubbed version (English or any other language) of Super DB Heroes (anime) or not?

No, I don't need alt-language dubs of a long-form commercial for a game I don't care about, that adds nothing to DB's characters or themes and generally has no finesse or depth of it's own. Heroes is and always has been constructed on what-if battles and adding new forms or variations on existing character designs. It hasn't changed to something with real substance or charm at all, and probably never will. It's exactly what it needs to be: a cheap series of animated shorts to promote a card-based video game for kids. From what I hear, it's a good card game for kids, but mostly I'd prefer Dragon Ball's western marketing and efforts go to less-boring, better-constructed products.

Maybe a TFS fandub.

Only if it becomes a full-fledged anime. There are certain characters that I would love to hear in my dub, as well as I would finally follow a series that it is not afraid to explore other ideas instead of wasting time with garbage stuff with uninteresting characters.

TBH I really want to see TFS do something with it, and have an ending where it's shown to be a fanfic written by Yamcha or something.

The show isn't even 10mins long and the story's garbage but why do I watch it? It's Dragon Ball. Would I want it dubbed? No.

Just leave as is, an anime promo for a card game.

No thanks. An official dub isn’t even something I want, but TFS even less so.

Episode 9 was good for Super DB Heroes standards. This episode was definitely more interesting that the previous ones. :)

I would most certainly disagree. The most it had going for it was slightly more action animation than usual. I neither expect that to happen consistently, nor does it help the total lack of charm or depth that I've come to expect from even very poor Dragon Ball stories. It's flawed at it's core as this 2kool4skool, self-important, completely un-Toriyama fanservice vehicle, but it's execution and production being about as flat and boring as humanly possible is what really kills it.

That's why it would be perfect for TFS to make a parody of.

I mean, sure, I don't really care about that. Theirs isn't really an adaptation in the first place, that's a whole different thing. They can do whatever they want.

If it was an Ocean dub, yes.

Though, tbh I'd probably watch any Ocean dubbing work on Dragon Ball, so Heroes isn't any special case here. Only real difference is, like Super, I'd have no interest in a Funi dub, and I'm only barely interested in the Japanese version.
Never lose hope that your situation can improve.

I don't know what I'd do with myself if Heroes got a dub before, say, the "Yo! Son Goku..." special, or the any of the OVAs, or hell, even a re dub of the Original Dragon Ball anime...

Zero context, zero setup. Its in NO way meant to be seen as a "beginning point" for ANYTHING other than the next story arc. It flows precisely and fluidly from where things left off in the aftermath of the 23rd Budokai and mostly hits the ground running from there without really stopping to look back. You're plopping someone into the middle of a book starting at chapter 195 out of 519 for absolutely no good goddamn reason, with very minimal opportunity to look back at much needed context and character/story growth.

There's hardly a need to re-dub Dragon Ball as it has been dubbed and it does its service. However, I agree with the rest.

The FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball is obviously not as good as their Kai dub but if you think FUNi would re-dub a series with 153 episodes that they deem not as profitable as Z, then don't expect it to happen. Don't like it? Watch it subbed.

Not to mention the FUNimation VAs are acting higher than mighty on Twitter recently so we should see what that all boils down to.

I don't care so much about dubbed, but I really want an official localized version--subbed is fine--so that I can watch it in some capacity of English officially.

I tried watching the first few episodes and to say it was pretty rough to get through is an understatement, so no.

I doubt there is any demand to have it dub at all.

Saying that SDBH is a card game for kids is like saying Dokkan Battle is a mobile game for kids. Adults also play the game. Matter of fact most of the SDBH YouTubers are adults. This feels like an insult to those of us older who want to play SDBH.

I don't like the SDBH anime. But don't be representing the game and actual story itself based on the anime. The premise is interesting, much more interesting and diverse than DBSuper at least.
