    Hey, guys.

    I just submitted a petition to Change.org in a last ditch attempt to get Ocean Kai on the air.


    If you love the Ocean dub and would love to hear it one more time, please go to the link and sign the petition. If I get enough signatures, I can call Corus Entertainment and get them to look at it.




    Don't you have connections to Kanzenshuu? Maybe they can share it on the front page.

  2. Does anybody remember this lost show called "Doodle"? This was an educational show that used to air in 1999 on northeastern PBS stations. I ask because I was trying to find some footage for a video, only to find out this show seems to have fallen completely off the face of the earth. All I could find was a handful of screenshots and the website (which is still up!) No-one I know seems to remember it except for my mother, who was the one who brought it up in the first place. There's not even an article on the LMW, that's how obscure it is.


    If anyone knows anything about this, let me know. Is this lost or am I just not looking deep enough?

    Do you have any idea how much it costs to dub a single episode of an anime? $6000-$10000. Now, multiply that amount by 98 (assuming that this is the amount that Ocean dubbed, as opposed to 159 EPs, the entire Kai series). You get $588,000-$980,000. How the F is that cheaper than broadcasting the entire Funi dub thus far? Do the math.


    Canada charges import fees on media, such as TV shows. Here, read the Wikipedia article (I know it's not exactly the most trustworthy source, but this article seems to be fairly accurate): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_content


    Also, I'm done arguing, so don't bother posting anymore on this topic, because no-one's gonna respond.

    Inverti only posts for the sake of disagreeing. I gathered that in the last topic. He'll disagree for the sake of disagreeing without even understanding the subject he's disagreeing about. If you look around the internet you'll learn very easily that the Ocean Dub is by far more sought after by the vocal Dragon Ball fans. Hell pretty much every body who has come to Kametsu looking for Dragon Ball related stuff has been requesting or seeking stuff related to the Ocean Dub. While I for one prefer the FUNimation dub, it's mostly because it's what I grew up with and I am use to it... I can understand why people who grew up with the Ocean dub would prefer it. One does not replace the other, they can co-exist... and if you're just here to be hostile, then your visit will be short. Be nice and if you don't have anything to contribute to the topic at hand, then it's better off not spamming it with useless comments.


    Thank you! I couldn't have said it any better!

    You still don't get it? Come on, have you even watched the Kai dub? It's highly superior to the sub AND the DBZ Funi dub. What I'm saying is, WHY make an alternate dub of a series that already has a top tier dub? It's beyond ridiculous. It's like saying that you're making a full series fandub of an already dubbed anime. Waste of time, effort and resources. Nobody's gonna like it better than the Funi Kai dub anyway, well, except for those with nostalgia. 


    Yes, I have watched the Kai dub, and I don't see the problem. There's not a problem with having two different dubs of the same show. It's probably not even being made to be a better dub. Canadian broadcast regulation laws dictate that a station has to pay a fee if non-Canadian programming is played. So it's probably cheaper to re-record the series with local actors. It's the same reason the original series had an alternate dub in Canada after episode 108: It was cheaper to re-record than to pay licensing fees to air the American dub.

    No, it's not. We're talking about unnecessary alternate dubs. Do you know when the Kai dub first came out? 2010. It hasn't even been 6 years, and already Ocean finds the need to do another dub of it? Fuck that. Come on, Ocean - spend your resources on shit that actually matter.


    I don't see what the big deal is. It's a Canadian dub of a show, and you're acting like it's going to replace the American dub. Stop getting so defensive about it.

    There is. It's a waste of resources and time. The Canadian VAs are just digging their own grave cuz once it's out (by that, I mean never), MAN OH MAN, are we gonna see lots of backlash.


    That's like saying you can't reboot a movie series because the original already exists. It's not a waste of time, it's just a dub of a cartoon. Stop getting so hostile.

  8. Just now, Inverti said:

    No, only do a redub if the original is a piece of crap. The Kai dub is actually very well received. Just because Arianne doesn't agree, he could hardly speak for the entire English fanbase.


    ie. Sailor Moon, Escaflowne, Akira, etc.


    I get that, but it's not a redub: It's an alternate dub. It's not replacing the American dub, it's just it's own dub. There's nothing wrong with that.

    Petitions don't work. At this point, nothing works. It's pointless. Separate dubs of an already good dub is what I deem as unnecessary.


    Just because there's already a dub doesn't mean there can't be any other dub. I wouldn't mind seeing other people dubbing DBZ, especially such talented actors.
