Dragon Ball Z: FUNimation Cut

Post by DBSEng » Sun Feb 16, 2020 12:33 am

I should start this off by saying..

Dragon Ball is Owned by TOEI ANIMATION, Ltd. and Licensed by FUNimation Productions, Ltd.. All Rights Reserved. Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, and Dragon Ball Super and all logos, character names and distinctive likenesses thereof are trademarks of TOEI ANIMATION, Ltd.

That being said I have been working on my own little passion project for the fans of the original FUNimation English dub for DBZ these last couple of months. My project Dragon Ball Z:FUNimation Cut will be (hopefully) the ideal way to watch for the fans of the original dub.

The project includes the following:
-Cuts out "most" filler from the series (I decided to leave in small filler such as Vegeta and Nappas attack on Aralia and iconic filler like Piccolo and Goku getting their drivers license)
-Includes footage from the R2J Dragon Box synced with the remastered English Dub from the Orange Bricks
-Includes original Faulconer Productions score starting at episode 42
-For episodes 1-64 I kept the original Ocean Dub "Rock The Dragon" Intro and outro; for the rest of the series I used the Faulconer ones
-The first 42 episodes include the Nathan Johnson score

That's about all there is to know! I have the following seasons done at the time I am posting this..
Saiyan Saga: Completed
Frieza Saga: Completed
Cell Saga: Completed
Buu Saga:WIP

I won't be sharing the project publicly just yet as I haven't gotten anywhere near completing it. I also probably will not be sharing the sayain saga portion of the project (just yet) due to me having to re-edit a huge chunk of it. So, if you wanted to take a look at it PM me and I'll send you a link. I also don't plan on having a release date for anything so I'll do a full scale release when the projects done.

So, that's basically everything I have for you guys. Stay tuned for future releases!

Awesome i've been waiting for something like this! Let me just say I wish you all the best.

If it were me i'd be using audio from the DVD singles myself since the Orange Bricks for some weird reason removed all the voice-filters for characters that had them in the original broadcasts/releases resulting in some voices sounding off and I wouldn't be trimming any filler, but nevertheless i'm very interested to see how this project turns out.

Well, the original plan of the project was to use the audio from the original DVD singles but when it came down to the saiyain saga (which had obviously not been originally dubbed by FUNimation group) I resorted to their re-dub. I thought about going with the original DVD singles once FUNimation stepped in but I felt it really broke the flow of the series when it came to some character voices and Kyle Herbert as the narrator. I do plan on using voice-filter audio clips from the original (like them being in the Room of Spirit and Time/Hyperbolic Time Chamber).

As for the filler... I had initially planned on the project being my own little version to watch the series for myself but figured maybe someone else would enjoy it. I found myself cutting out most of the filler because every time I had watched the series for myself I found myself losing interest over how long some of the story arcs were drawn out. I didn't turn to Kai either because quite frankly I'm not a huge fan of the various voice changes or the OST re-score. So, I hope to create a (sort of) Kai experience out of Z using the original Funi dub and music.

Hello again everyone! I thought I'd just put out a quick few updates regarding the project...

1) First off I'd like to say that I am about 45% done with the project. So, there is still a lot of work to be done! I just finished (as of writing this) re-editing the entirety of the saiyan saga with this time the unfinished 'Level Set' releases. After the saiyan saga I will continue to use the Dragon Boxes.

2) Now after redoing a little bit of the Namek saga I started to really think about how much I prefer Chris Aryes portrayal of Frieza over Linda Young's. This might be kind of controversial to the project but I may try to replace Frieza's original lines in Dragon Ball Z with Chris Aryes's in Kai. I realize that a lot of people do prefer Young's voice over Aryes's and I do apologize if this is a bit on an inconvenience towards the project.

Alright, that's about all I've got for right now. Stay tuned for more upcoming developments!

This project sounds amazing! i cant wait to see it completed.

I have ONE question/suggestion. Have you seen TheMaestros faulconer re scoring of the sayan saga? (hes eventually gona rescore all the way up to episode 67). If possible, it would be phenominal if you could use those episodes and recut them to take out the filler as well. That would create more cohesiveness to the final project.

Let me know what you think!
