Oh I know he did a ton of the voices. i didn't include everything for people who had more than 4-5. Just gave a few. i figured if people wanted to look into it further they could.


A friend got a whole bunch of signed stuff from him and remember being told he was basically half the voices in DBZ.


Pretty much, very diverse voice range. Hope he got paid like the 40 people who would have voiced those characters.

Wow! That's awsome! Jack and cell sound nothing alike, that's talent right there

Also why is it that so many people think that just because its the original voice acting that its better?
Listen to any of vegita's speeches his first death, the first super transformation. And my personal favorite his kamikaze attack on buu. Then listen to the japanese guy and look me straight in the eye and say he did a better job

In most anime there are only 4 voices, mature female (amy rose, chi chi, caska, the chick from hellsing) "cute" girl (every other female. Bored deep voice guy "seperoth in advent cildren, vegita, freezam dracula in castlevaina) and annoying guy. (Goku, every guy in naruto,)

because it is? i dont say it out of malice or inexperience. hell just last month my computer broke down and i was without an anime fix for almost 2 weeks. i tried using Xbox lives Crackle app because it had anime but i simply could not stand the English VAs. in fact the only anime i watched was Blue Exorcist because it was like 1 of 3 that wernt in English.

i'll admit that Gokus original voice was annoying as hell. and im sure the VAs for the english version were all competent. but you cant get around the fact that translating a show or movie will always produce results less favorable then the original.

Why? localization budgets, cultural differences and lip syncing. you just cant get around this stuff.

I watched Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z on Toonami when I was a kid. I didn't have the chance early on to watch it in Japanese, but at a later point, after hearing it, the Japanese audio isn't my taste.

i don't like the voice actors at all. Frankly, they sound like women. The music doesn't set the tone as well as Bruce Faulconer's. It all boils down to preference anyway.

I'm a casual anime fan anyway. I've only ever really watched 3-4 anime shows throughout my lifetime.

im pretty sure your distaste for the Japanese version simply stems from the fact that you heard it in English first. its like when i try to watch an asian flick with Qi Shu in it thats been translated. they give her an English VA despite the fact that she speaks English. and having heard her english voice acting it just feels jarring to hear a different voice.

Gokus voice is extremely different in each version as well as many other characters. so its understandable that you would find different voices strange and unappealing.

even if it would be obviously and objectively better - you can't beat your child's memories no matter how hard you try. I lived through some serious bad dubs (simpsons for instance) and yet I can't watch them in english as that sounds too "different" - even if it's better. it's always a matter of "what you watch first" - ALWAYS.
if you start a new series and just compare the voice acting, you'd see how great the gap between the acting really are.
