We had this thread yesterday.

Seriously, watch DBZ Kai. I was like that too when I was 14 but then I realized that when it takes 20 years to charge up in a battle it's not worth it.

Generally in most tv shows filler is meant to do 2 things: to save their budget for other episodes and to further cement the characters. In all honesty all the sagas until after Cell saga stood perfectly fine without filler.

It really isn't worth sitting through 20 episodes of Gohan befriending a robot only to have it never referenced again. Just watch Kai.

Dragon Ball has an excellent OST.

The best answer.

Alternatively... read the manga or watch Kai. Both are better than the Z anime, especially its dub.

That new Gohan voice though.

Dragon Box that has jap voice w/ jap music, english dub w/ jap music, and english dub w/ english music.

Or watch it on funimation's website if you want eng dub w/ eng music.

Watch Dragon Ball, read "Dragon Ball Z".

Good question. I couldn't find an answer but it's an awesome rendition either way.

The Dragon Boxes were spared the blight of any replacement music. The 5.1 English track with the real music was barely even included as a bonus.
>>
>>136122494
>>136122591
I'm thinking of whatever I had once downloaded that had all three tracks on them.

Nadolny's Gohan always sounded too old for the character's age. That slightly deeper and goofy voice was fine for age 12-15 kid Goku, but didn't really fit the meeker age 4-11 kid Gohan. The touch of femininity in the voice Clinkenbeard does for him is perfectly suitable.
>>
Why is Kai's soundtrack so good?
>>
>>136123098
If you mean Yamamoto's: Because despite his plagiarism shenanigans, the guy is still genuinely very talented.

If you mean Kikuchi's: Because it fit DBZ so well that it'll fit ANY form of DBZ, even when it's sloppily placed.

Kai is the 1:1 adaptation of the Manga withouth filler. It's the best version. Only thing is not having the original anime music but Kai's ost is at least bearable and not as bad as Faulconer's shit.

That's not the name of the murrikan OST (because the murrican version of DBZ doesn't have a proper OST but a bunch of randomly synthethised sounds made by a guy on a keyboard). It's Goku's speech in the retard Funi dub.

Sorry Amerifats, in fact, fuck your asses, we get the same DB vidya versions as you and we have to stand the shitty dub voices (not the acting, just the voices) and the shit music rather than the OST we all grew up with.

The soundtrack is eastern-sounding orchestral pieces befitting an action/adventure cartoon about monkey-people punching monsters and aliens that started out as a parody of a Chinese fairy tale.

You can like it you want, cool, whatever. But in every measurable way it's a bad dub.

Wildly inaccurate script, amateur VAs doing unfitting voices, replacing music... It's like a go-to checklist of "how to make a bad dub."

Seeing it on Toonami back in the day got me into the franchise too, but I dove onto the internet to learn more and quickly realized how crappy the dub was and outgrew it. I do still appreciate the English cast now that they're not total newbies anymore, and so I really enjoy watching well-dubbed stuff like Kai and the new movies.

>>136138985
Well, I'm pretty sure (not 100%) that the biggest reason was that Nadolny wasn't available anymore.

>>136139147
In a lot of ways you're right that Kai has shortcomings compared to the original Z in Japanese... But it's still a much better option for new Western fans than Z in English. The damage done to the series' reputation and fanbase by Z's old English dub is irreparable. We needed Kai so that FUNi could have a second chance WAY more than Japan needed it for any reason.

Yes, if you want to watch in English.

The English dub of Z was done back in the 90's and early 2000's and is complete crap. But now FUNimation has much higher standards and Kai's dub is excellent.

If you're going to watch in Japanese, Z is better for a variety of production-based reasons.

dragon ball runs dry on what makes it great after it stops being fun, namely after krillin dies and the piccolo stuff starts, dbz is able to make interesting again after radditz dies, frieza arc is great and as lazy as toriyama got in buu arc, it was the biggest return to form the series could have gotten by returning focus to the characters one last time before it ended, dragon ball was never leagues above Z it had its own problems too, take a look at what both actually were before saying original was better

Feels bad, bro. It still hurts that the Level BD sets were canceled so early... that was easily the best the series has ever looked. I'm grateful I managed to snatch up all 7 Dragon Boxes when they were new, at least.

>>136139822
I'm pretty sure the Japanese versions of those games used Kikuchi's score to begin with... disappointing that it wasn't kept when they went West. Really helped push the "DBZ simulator" style of those games that much more.

>>136139984
Yeah, they did redub stuff for the "Ultimate Uncut" versions... but for the most part it was still based on the same bad old scripts, so it didn't help much. An actual faithful dub, where the characters are saying the same things as in the Japanese version and manga, didn't happen until Kai.

Jap sub/music fans act like its superior just because its the original

Akira Toriyama wrote the MANGA. he didnt make the ANIME, nor did he find the voice actors, nor did he compose the OST.

He had almost NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ANIME ITSELF. It's ridiculous to believe the sub is superior just because his neighbors made it instead of some people overseas.
The music is incredibly cheesy and outdated since its from the FUCKING 80s. THE MUSIC HAS CHANGED SINCE THEN. anime music has evolved since then and the Faulconer soundtrack fits much better.

As for the voice acting, yes originally the dub was much worse, but Funi redid the lines for the remastered version which makes it the perfect version

DBZ ran dry on what made it fun by the time the Frieza arc happened. Then it became all about powerlevel wankery, staring contests, constipated screaming, people dying then coming back to life only to die again, more than half the cast being irrelevant and forgotten, and then an even stronger bad guy appears who, like the last one, has no motives other than being EEEEEEEEEEEVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIL

What I really don't like about the Funi dub is the sound editing. There's constantly sound and abrupt cuts from one track to the next and back. It's that old ass cartoon ideology that you need to always have noise and colors for kids.

A dub is a bad dub when it arbitrarily changes stuff.

DBZ's dub arbitrarily changed stuff. Script, character personalities, music, etc. Thus DBZ's dub is a bad dub.

Doesn't matter what you or anything else thinks of the replacement scores in terms of musical quality or how much it "fits." It's not what was put there by the show's creators, therefore it doesn't belong there. It never should have existed, and it shouldn't still be included on modern releases of DBZ today.

Besides, "the music sounds dated" is the stupidest excuse I've ever heard. The show itself is FROM the 80's and 90's, so why should anything change? It is what it is, and half-cocked attempts to "modernize" it by doing things like swapping in droning techno-rock just make things worse.
>>
>>136140810
this is really the only valid criticism i can think of. there are certain scenes where silence would be good, but i feel like most of the time they do a good job of keeping the music low enough that it doesn't interfere too much with the scene.
>>
>>136140259
>I'm pretty sure the Japanese versions of those games used Kikuchi's score to begin with... disappointing that it wasn't kept when they went West. Really helped push the "DBZ simulator" style of those games that much more.

They remixed Kikuchi's music which I thought was nice(and think it's completely pointless to actually mod the original version in the game to be honest)

That guy is a retard tho
Failconer didn't compose the International Soundtrack for Tenkaichi 2 and 3
They were composed by Japanese Composers
And Tenkaichi 2 had a phenomenal soundtrack
Like for example this track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g33NAdYB8GU

Tenkaichi 3's was just OK because it was too samey and didn't have enough variety I felt

That said it would have been to have had an option for both soundtracks(JP and International)
So where the fuck is my Tenkaichi 2 and 3 HD Remasters with that option?

Yeah, that's always been one of the biggest criticisms. Plenty of other regions already had their own DBZ dubs before it came to North America, and they did just fine without replacing the music. But for some dumb reason, FUNi at the time thought that American kids were special and needed to be catered to with constant noise.

>>136141066
Ah, that's right. Same tracks, new mixes. Actually, come to think of it, I think that's the only time "Battle Point Unlimited" was ever used again past the Trunks arc in the series.

>>136141298
So what about all the new kids getting hooked by watching Kai on Nicktoons and such?

>>136141854
Who still has a very childish personality. Besides, it's all but unheard of in Japan to replace VAs just because the character grows up, and Nozawa DID alter Goku's voice somewhat as he aged.

True enough. But DBZ was popular all over the world. Just the Latin America fanbase puts everyone else to shame and gives even Japan a run for its money. So it's ludicrous and even kind of conceited that some people think DBZ "needed" things like music and tone changes to succeed.

Dragon Ball is Dragon Ball. It's going to be popular regardless.

In Dragon Ball Goku wasn't a Saiyan yet(they retconned him into being an Alien in Z)

>>136142437
It definitely didn't
Dragon Ball is also popular and that didn't change the music(except for removing certain insert songs because funimation is retarded...like for example they removed "Mezase Tenkaichi" from the Goku vs Jackie Chun fight but they left it intact in the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai which was fucking strange)

What's more insulting though is that the Dub Soundtrack for DBZ didn't even fit and was pretty damn forgettable
It seemed like they didn't even put any effort into it

A dub soundtrack can be good
Look at Beyblade's dub soundtrack for example
That shit was really good and there was a lot of effort put into it(and was the only good part of the dub since the acting,script changes etc. were so laughably bad...in fact they were so bad they were good in a way)

Funi was basically no different from Early Viz, 4kids or fuck even Saban when it came to dub localization, they only did a superficial job with the UUE's of DBZ to bait the sub fans and those who got the chance to get a taste of the Mexidub, mainly because they didn't wanted to promote the japanese version that much.

they weren't fucking pedantic like Viz and 4kids which pretended the Japanese versions dint exists per say but, it's not like they tried either:

Oh by the by, Ocean gets shit for the early dub, but THEY WERENT TEH ONES IN CHARGE OF THE SCRIPT, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN FUNIMATION THEMSELVES WHO WROTE THAT SHIT, OCEAN ONLY DID THE VOICE ACTING FOLLOWING THAT DIRECTION.

In fact, Ocean did so a decent job when Pioneer was in charge of the scripts of the first 3 movies, which were more or less faithfull, not 100% but they were and improvement, thanks to Pioneer....(cont)

(cont)

But Funi attempted to soft-sabotaged those dubs by adding the hannah barberish sfx's and when they redub the 3 movies eventually, basically they opted to do it their own way, by redoing the script, as how they would been written IF they were in charge back then, hence the inferior and more corny lines of dialogue.

I am not kidding.

Heck, when Funimation started the dub with his cast, they were told to imitate the Ocean cast to some extent, remember how shitty early sabat vegeta sounded, when he tried to sound like brian drummond vegeta...........BUT BADLY?

And if that wasn't enough, then when Funi got the ocean cast back for Canada and UK airings of the show, THEN they forced the ocean dub actors to imitate the FUNI actors, hence why then the voices on the late Ocean dub (cell and Buu) sounded so bored and awkward, such a shame, cause first we have chris sabat doing a terrible impression of brian drummond (before he did the more ogre-like voice for vegeta during buu and the UUE's and before he did his current vegeta voice that sounds like in the middle of the ogre vegeta and TFS vegeta), and now we got drummond doing a bad impersonation of Sabat impersonating him, wrap your head around that!.

And it was thanks to FUNI direction at the time.

Could you please stop blaming ocean for those scripts,

The Pilaf filler was godawful, you don't know what you're talking about. It made a third of every episode totally pointless and it ruined the joke of Pilaf being really bad at torture. And then when the actual Pilaf part started the pacing was totally ruined and none of the jokes worked.

And don't get me started on the fucking pinball episode. I don't think there's a more egregious waste of time in all of fiction. Even in early Dragon Ball when Toei actually had a backlog of un-adapted chapters their filler was godawful and didn't make any sense.
>>
>>136150736

Because the dub voices and music still managed to capture the intensity of the scenes, even if they aren't nearly as good as the original.

Take this early DBZ dub clip for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otE7pCUjqHc

In the manga the characters walk into the castle, see the arrows on the floor and immediately get trapped. The joke is how effective such a stupid and simple trap is and how they get captured before Pilaf even has the chance to do anything. They get captured literally the page after they enter the palace.

The anime adds in some dramatic bullshit with bats and mechanical pillars crushing them. It seems like Toei didn't even realize the arrow trap was a joke. You should read the manga, it's a billion times better than Toei's shitty anime.

I remember the school council having to explicitly prohibit the reprography girl from allowing Dragon Ball photocopies (everyone had dossiers with their respective collections of DB pictures since internet was not widespread yet).
