LMAO, someone’s defensive. Clearly I wasn’t referring specifically to you, so calm the fuck down. If you don’t see just how out right nasty Funi fanboys can get about the Japanese version, all I can say is you aren’t looking hard enough. Since at least 2007 (when the orange bricks made their debut) there’s been a shit ton of hostility towards, not just Kikuchi, but the Japanese voices, writing etc. I constantly read rude comments on social media about “granny” Goku and the like.Planetnamek wrote: ↑Wed Feb 26, 2020 4:38 pmI fail to see how liking Faulconer's soundtrack automatically means one isn't critical on things like audio quality, that makes zero senseMasenkoHA wrote: ↑Wed Feb 26, 2020 2:52 pmJustice League, Static Shock, The New Batman Adventures, Superman the animated series, Batman Beyond.

Just a handful of cartoons that aired around Yu-gi-oh’s time that had no problem with showing realistic firearms. There was no FCC guidelines against it.
Somehow I doubt people who grew up with this shit:And yes I do believe the crappy audio for the original version of DBZ played a major part in a decent chunk of people that grew up watching the dub preferring the Faulconer soundtrack.
And think it was the most epic thing ever are that critical on things like audio quality.
Also this notion that "nostalgia" is the ONLY possible reason that someone could be kind of eh on the original score is blatantly false , you've got absolutely no possible of way proving that for an absolute cold hard fact.
Blatantly false, it's bad by YOUR standard, not everyone else's. This kind of nonsense is what always annoys me about these kinds of debates-the purists insisting their opinions are somehow superior and more "correct" then those that disagree with themXanatosVanBadass wrote: ↑Wed Feb 26, 2020 4:17 pmExactly my thoughts. These fans go on and on about how “epic” Perfect Cell’s theme is when in reality, it’s repetitive garbage by any standard. Cell is the epic one and you people associate that with his theme. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fanbase in anime that’s as outright hostile towards the original Japanese like DBZEE fanboys. Not even Robotech fans.
Sorry but hating the dub score does not make you special or unique, this isn't 1999 anymore, the dub is long since over and even Funi themselves stopped using that score, so I fail to see how still remaining angry and bitter towards people that unironically like it is going to solve anything.
I fail to see how preferring one score over another somehow equals being "hostile" towards it
If i'm "hostile" to anyone it's towards Toei for not taking better care of their own properties and allowing Funi to show them up by having better audio quality, I guarantee you if we'd had the original broadcast audio there wouldn't be nearly as many debates in regards to the score as there are now.
FYI I barely even noticed the score as a kid, I was too focused on the action to really pay much attention to the music, it wasn't until rewatching it as an adult a few years ago that I really paid any attention to the score and I found that I liked it quite a bit and I do listen to it outside of the show(hell I was just listening to it last night while playing a game). So at least for me it's definitely not a case of nostalgia(BTW I do get ever so tired of sub purists constantly throwing that word around as if it's the only possible explanation for liking a dub ).
I also find it amusing how many people stereotype the Funi soundtrack as being nothing but hardcore rock and techno when in reality that's far from being the case as there are plenty of slower and more melodic moments as well.
Mind, then they’ll babble about how Linda Young was the definitive Freeza and how Tiffany Vollmer should replace Monica Rial.
Oh, speaking of Bulma’s VA. When her Japanese voice died, you know one common sentiment I had to read on social media? I’m paraphrasing here, but “who cares? Let me know when it’s the dub actress THEN I’ll care” or “when will Nozawa be next?” Yeah.
Mind, this isn’t to say ALL Funi fans were that cruel. It was however, more than a few, and it goes with what I’ve been saying. There’s a baffling lack of respect for the original that I just don’t see with fans of other anime. It’s FINE if you prefer dubs to shows. Hell, there are dubs I enjoy just as much as the sub (if not more sometimes).
But when I’m talking with a fan (hardcore otaku purist) and he says, in all sincerity, that “the only good dub that exists is DBZ” then, sorry but you’re (general you) are blinded by nostalgia and nothing else.
To be frank, I don’t care if that hurts your feelings. Not everything is directed at you.
