Dubs that have been aired by more than 1 country

Post by TheRed259 » Tue Oct 29, 2019 5:01 am

The English dub and the Latin American one are definitely on the list but I also want to know the countries where these dubs have been aired.

I would like to know the same thing about other Dragon Ball dubs around the world and the original Japanese version.

French and Japanese ones were used in Poland, we had a lector reading over the voices. Funny thing is the dialogue was in French, but screams and some minor words (like 'kisama', 'onore') were kept in Japanese.

I changed the title of the topic from Dubs that have been used... to Dubs that have been aired... so that people won't get confused and start mentioning countries that their dub was used as a basis for another country's dub since this is not what I am looking for.

Canada, the UK, and I think Germany all aired the English Dub of DB/Z/GT done in Vancouver and Calgary that was produced by the French company AB Groupe.

Besides airing in France, the French AB dub also aired in Belgium, Burkina Faso, Canada, Ivory Coast, Niger and Senegal.

The Serbian Ultra TV dub was also aired in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and North Macedonia.

I have heard that Netherlands aired the Ocean dub as well (with Dutch subs). Let's see if someone else knows more about Germany that you mentioned and if they really aired the Ocean dub or not.

Good. The French dub was also aired in Algeria. Do you happen to know if this dub has ever aired in Luxembourg?

I have no links but from what I know, Ultra TV was available in those countries through some satellite providers since its start in 2008 until its closure this year.

I grew up watching German TV channels in the 90's and as far as I'm aware, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z were only dubbed and shown in German language. I watched a ton of anime on those German channels and all were dubbed in German.

Cool, thanks for the info but I am less interested in satellites TV channels since that way every dub can theoretically air almost everywhere. I have read that even the Greek DBZ dub was aired by ANT1 Pacific or ANT1 Satellite in other countries some years ago when DBZ wasn't even running in Greece anymore. Smile TV is also available to some countries via satellite as well.

The only country apart from Greece that aired/airs the Greek dub without the need of a satellite TV is Cyprus.

So the info mentioned above could be wrong.

Any idea about the Arabic dub for example and where it was aired?

The Original Japanese version of Dragon Ball Z aired in America on the International Channel, from 1997-2002. Somebody who watched the show then during that time could probably give better information on it than me, not being around back then.

Jeez, I haven't posted here since May...

The Japanese version also aired on Nippon Golden Network in Hawaii. The original series the first third of Z were subbed, but the latter parts and GT had no translation.
The Japanese version of Z also aired on Pearl TV in Hong Kong with English subs.

The Latin American Spanish dub aired on Telemundo in the US until the Cell Saga, where it was taken off. May have had to do with NBC buying the network and removing all acquired programming.

Some Pan-African satellite channel (Star TV?) once aired the original Dragon Ball in a Mandarin dub with English subtitles. According to Kei, it was an obscure dub from Mainland China.

I know I'm a few days behind some of these other responses, but some of the wiki research I had been doing ties in here:

I can say with certainty that Nippon Golden Network began airing the original Dragon Ball television series in January 1992. They moved on to Dragon Ball Z sometime in late 1994. They ran through a little over 100 episodes, which took them into 1995... which just so happened to align with FUNimation's work on the franchise. NGN's work on the series was fully subtitled in English in a pretty iconic yellow-with-black-border style.

The International Channel ran Dragon Ball Z in raw Japanese from late 1997 to completion in November 2002. They immediately followed it up the very next week (just like in Japan!) with raw Japanese Dragon Ball GT, which ran to completion in early 2004.
