>kiddy adventure shit
The only reason to watch DB was to check on Tien/Yamcha/Krillin/Piccolo's background.
If I want to have that kind of style, I'd watch Pokémon.
This is a troll right? No one could possibly believe that Dragon Ball is a serious & mature show
That's not what I'm saying.
DBZ is action-packed and violent, and that's the charm of it.
DB is just another generic "let's go on an adventure" show, of which there are tons of.
You know it's all the same thing right? The Z is just an arbitrary name change at a certain point of the story.
DB turned violent as soon as Tao Pai Pai showed up. Even moreso once Daimao entered the picture.
It's not the same though. Most characters in DB were goofy and small.
Z became more serious.
Aliens, entire planets being destroyed, more death, destruction.
And yes, the screaming and powering up.
I know this word has lost all its meaning but I'm still gonna say it: DBZ was EPIC. There was nothing like it. It contains the most powerful beings of all fiction.
Please read more western comics, and watch more anime and manga.
I can name 2 people off the top of my head that are x100000000 stronger than any shitter from DBZ
Wanda aka Scarlet Witch
Fuck you, kid.
Get over yourself, kid.
DB was better than Z
All the movies literally make no sense in the timeline
The most epic moment of DBZ is everthing Majin Vegeta, and still, that even is that "epic"
I'm a perfectionist so I need to absorb as much knowledge as perfect.
If that means quickly glancing over DB to understand who the fuck Tien/Yamcha/Krillin are then I'll do it.
DB is like a prequel. It's the background for DBZ, which is the real thing.
The sad thing is there are actually people that believe this.
You weebs are the minority.
Most of the world grew up with the superior Funimation Toonami Bruce Faulconer DBZ.
Eat your heart out.
>Most of the world
You know that literally every country has had Dragon Ball, right? The US is the only one with rewritten characters and replacement music.
Plus your childhood isn't a good excuse for altering a piece of culture. The US reversioning had its time and place but that's no reason to just ignore or discredit the original version.
From the early part of Z, when Funi edited the episodes and had Ocean doing the voices. Shuki Levy and some other guy did the replacement score up until Goku arrived on Namek.
And when Funi went back to do do the uncut version of those episodes they had a guy Nathan Johnson do it
whose dronefest of a score was even worse than Faulconer's,
I'm from Europe and grew up with the American version. My country didn't have its own local dub.
You purists should stop acting like the original is flawless. It's fucking terrible. Just because the Japanese created it doesn't mean their version is the best.
>effeminate asian voices over masculine men
Japan should stick to drawing and animating, let the voices and music be done by America.
>not ripped as fuck
Ripped is one thing. But the characters aren't written to be manly or anything. It's not Fist of the North Star or Jojo. It's a martial arts adventure manga where the powers rose to absurd heights written by a guy with a fondness for poop jokes.
I'm not from America and I got the Funi dub.
Glad I grew up with that instead of the terrible grandma-Goku, cringe-worthy Jap screams and non-existant music.
>Every character aside from Goku got screentime unlike DBZ: The Saiyan Edition
>Human characters could actually match and beat Goku
hate that shit, when I was a kid anime of 13-26 episodes on tv could last 3 years before you reached the last episode.
in my country they just reached detective conan episode 129 or so (when haibara joins the group) fuck
It was the worst when i was 10 i was stuck in the saiyan saga for 2 years then i was stuck on fucking namek for the next 5 years. Mom would ask me what was going on and i would be like "i'm still on Namek mom"
>I'm supposed to take this comment seriously
you're correct Frieza was the climax of the series; Andriod Saga wasnt bad since they were still in the mind set that everyone was still useful it wasnt until the Buu Saga where everyone you enjoyed to watch fight was either dead or on the bench.
>23rd Tenkaichi training episodes
>22nd Tenkaichi training episodes
>Kuririn rounding up the troops in the Saiyan arc
>Saiyan training episodes
>Gohan in high school
>Next World tournament
>Pilaf's flying fortress
>Wedding dress arc
>anything with Haiya Dragon
>anything Bulma does on Namek
>Goku and Namu looking for the Roaming Lake
>Garlic Jr. arc
The problem is, nobody can go through fucking Z in this day and age.
That's like watching all episodes of Star Trek, it's impossible. You'll get bored/fatigued/burned out before you reach the end.
Kai just gets straight to the point, and it's finishable.
Here's a Toonami edit of DBZ back when it aired too.
>Glad I grew up with that instead of the terrible grandma-Goku, cringe-worthy Jap screams and non-existant music.
>I like the version I watched first. I am incapable of judging quality from an objective standpoint even though I am 24 years old.
I say again: Pleb.
Apparently its too violent to hold a child's eyes open in the US
Have a Dragon Box version too
Why do you want Goku to sound like a woman?
Why do you want power ups to sound like choking/throat-clearing?
This is screaming:
Not your Japanese "gggggghgghgghgg" sounds.
>there are actually people that think Japanese automatically = better and no other versions can top it
Case in point
I like the original version better because the characterizations, tone, and music are as the creators intended, not made into a cheap Doom music reject AMV with Superman dressed in orange as the main character.
Goku doesn't sound like a woman.
Goku sounds like a child with a slightly deeper register.
The only thing wrong with Nozawa's voice is that she is actually getting old. But back when DB/Z was airing, there was nothing wrong with her voice.
I should ask why you want Goku to sound like some surfer dude who doesn't even understand the character.
Schemmel on Goku:
>He needs to be a little bit like Cell, and he's learned his lesson from Freeza. There's not gonna be anymore of the "Ally to good, nightmare to you" business. Goku's fight is now more strategic than raw power. Goku's a real badass, and he's now become Shaft. :)
Nozawa on Goku:
>I think Goku is extremely pure, in the world of Dragon Ball, as he gets older. I just want him to keep his pure feelings and heart.
So you don't care how shitty the voices are?
That's like one of the most important fucking things.
You understand English, it's more relatable when characters talk English than in a foreign language.
>he can't comprehend tone in foreign languages
>he thinks 30 people in Texas who VA as a hobby is a better casting pool than 300 people in Japan who VA for a living
I like the voices. They go with the characters and the performances aren't horrid and flanderized like they are for 90% of the Z US broadcast dub.
And I can't relate to a Goku that spouts shit like 'ally to good, nightmare to you.'
Sorry but Japanese is an ugly language.
Why you'd find that shit fitting for DBZ is beyond me.
I like DBZ Abridged more than actual DBZ and I don't know where to talk about it.
>You understand English, it's more relatable when characters talk English than in a foreign language
It's also easier to tell when the voice acting is shit.
This is how bad the old DBZ dub was.
>Talking shit on Movie 5's original soundtrack
oh no you didn't
I've been watching Kai and really like it except for Goku's voice. His voice is fucking awful. I just don't understand why the Japanese would do that to their main character.
On the flip side, the voices of other characters, especially the women, are phenomenal. I also had no idea Vegeta is voiced by motherfucking REINHARD VON LOHENGRAMM.
>The parody of that 'hope of the universe' speech
Holy shit, it was excellent
How does Jap not sound ugly to you?
I assume you're either from America or Europe.
Their voices are cringey and weird. I'm not saying the English dub is flawless, but it's a hell of a lot more fitting to DBZ than effeminate "gggg" voices.
Brian Drummond = Best Vegeta
>watch DBZ religiously after school
>get to the Ginyu episodes
>Goku arrives, Jace and Berter are flying around him
>oh man what's going to happen next!!!!
>get home, anxiously turn on Toonami
>mfw it's the start of the Raditz saga
Portuguese dub is the best
>Talking shit about Cooler movie OST and Hinorobu Kageyama
Because he's still the same kid at heart. Not the superman protector of the peace that the dub makes him out to be.
Also, the scene with the Genki Dama against Kid Buu doesn't make any sense if his voice is different.
>There are people right now on /a/ think Goku should sound like an 80 year old woman
I'm Canadian and that intro song was fucking awful. Just awful.
I'm glad most of the Ocean dub is gone forever because it will never be reaired in the PVR era. That whole dub was just a pile of shit that owed its existence to CanCon.
>I am the alpha and the amiga!
TFS are seriously great. It's a pity the first few episodes are so amateurish and terrible. The series really comes into its own during the Saiyan Saga and there's been hardly any drop in quality since. Even Cell is great.
>I'mma DRINK you now.
>Saiyans are the Aggro inevitable tier 1 race
>Super Saiyan gives you unlimited Ki alongside other buffs
>No other race but Saiyans can transform at all. Not even Friezas
>Fighting is boring and untechnical as fuck
>Non destructable environments despite being a 3D fighting game
>No Android CaCs
dear god keep that garbage away from me
nothing wrong with that
I'm sorry I don't speak your weeb gibberish.
>Non destructible environments is apparently a bad thing
Destructible environments reduce framerate, cause camera to act weird and is only a flashy background effect that no one cares about
That reminds me. Dub Frieza was actually some other hobbyist VA's mom, who he asked to come in and audition.
So anyone bitching about Nozawa should probably reevaluate that Frieza was dubbed by a woman in her 50s.
>Can he read my thoughts? HOW DID HE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS THINKING!?
In a panic, he changed tabs. There were new Naruto Shippuden AMVs to watch on Youtube. 4chan would have to wait until later, when he would regain his composure.
Rock the Dragon at least had that stupid guitar shit. Both suck, but ours sucked way harder.
Our DB opening was almost amusing with how badly written it was.
I don't browse /b/, that shit's cancer.
I think you mean Italian.
Italians just made their own disco pop OP for everything that got dubbed.
It was all terrible, but some of it was okay.
Hold on to your anus.
Y'all niggas have delved so far into your hobby that you will defend any voicework that comes from Japan with your baseless "hurt durr emotions" argument. The Japanese dub was shit. Just like YuYu Hakusho's.
Save the pure, effeminate woman character voices for characters who aren't big ass niggas with bulbous muscles. DBZ isn't supposed to be well thought out. Its aliens throwing nukes at each other. Its pure senseless entertainment. Why should there be shitty Japanese voicework to accentuate "purity"?
Whatever you say, tasteless weeaboo.
