Anyone notice how many Dragon Ball Z voice actors are in Borderlands 2?

Well....damn. The Hercule/Goliath bit made me chuckle a little, not sure why exactly but it did.

A lot of the actors involved with DBZ live in the Dallas-Forth Worth area, which is where Funimation and Gearbox are located.

That was one of the ones I immediately recognized. I think the idea of the goober playing the Goliath is pretty funny.

GT and Kai is a disgrace of dragonball Z. Please don't mention them with DBZ

The first time I heard a Goliath, I immediately thought of Hercule, had no idea it was actually his VA until now, I didn't even recognize Eric Vale's voice in there at all, or Christopher Sabat's either, funny how that all works.

Thank you! I've been hearing those voices and I thought I was crazy for thinking they were from DBZ/GT. That's a long list.

This topic isn't about what parts/iterations of the series people don't like, so please don't bring that in here.
