    You can post your thoughts about the show if you've heard it, or you can also post what do you expect of it if you haven't heard it.

    Understandable, I've got pretty crazy stuff too, but I'm doing other stuff as mentioned so rush

    Get to the JLA script? It's just the beginning, though I'm also doing a Spidey book, a script for a Marvel/DC game, and some Batman stories, and a bunch of horror, so it keeps me busy, but if you're intersted in any just let me know.

    Another good point, I didn't think that it might have turned out that way because of Toriyama's art habits, but since they drew attention to it in the anime (I wonder if that scene is in the manga...), it's kind of confusing and there's not a crystal clear answer. I know you see it in a broader scope than just the age thing, but that was just one aspect I was zeroing in on. With that, I guess we've gone over everything. Thanks for the good talk.

    It would definitely be a plus in my mind if they brought Stephanie back just for Goku if nothing else. But, it doesn't mean much to me since even if she did come back it would only be for the video games. I highly doubt Funimation would ever want to redub Dragon Ball or anything where Stephanie could get some significant work out of the role again, so they'll probably just keep Colleen for convenience's sake. It would still be cool, though.

    With all of that in mind, I don't find Stephanie's voice that ill-fitting for Gohan. Since Kid Gohan has a very similar physical build to Goku in Dragon Ball, I don't see it as much of a problem. Does that seem like a reasonable conclusion on my part? Anyway, I'm glad we have more of an understanding on this than I thought we did.

    Truth be told, while I'm still a little sore about Stephanie Nadolny being replaced, I've gotten to where I've accepted it. It's in the past, and it's not like it ruined Kai. But I'm still dying to see Stephanie make a voice acting comeback. If I could hear her in more anime/cartoons, I'd be VERY happy with that. There are other types of characters her voice would work with very well.

    Saffron Henderson coming back for Ocean's Kai dub is a nice bright side to all of this, though. Vancouver actors certainly deserve more attention than they get, so I'll be happy to see it when it finally comes out.

    First of all, thanks for hearing me out. I really appreciate that. I'm more emotional about this subject than I am with a lot of things on this site, so I tend to take it to heart more than I should. As far as young Goku being older than Gohan was up until post-Cell events, I see your point, but Goku also looked and sounded a LOT younger than he actually was. Didn't he say he was fourteen or so in one episode, and then Bulma, Yamcha, Oolong and Puar all looked at him in disbelief? I think the show made it a point that they wouldn't have figured out his real age if he didn't tell them. He looked pretty much the exact same age as five year-old Gohan, and Masako Nozawa's voices for Goku and Gohan sounded incredibly similar in terms of pitch and age (from what I remember, anyway).

    So, anyway, that's pretty much all I have to say. I have a lot of emotional attachment to Stephanie's Gohan and still think it had plenty of merit to it, and I don't think feeling that way is entirely unjustified. I'm just disappointed because for all we know she could have improved her work just as much as Sean Schemmel and Chris Sabat did, but she didn't get the chance.

    I still totally understand where people are coming from when they say her voice was off or just inconsistent, but I thought her acting was spot-on in her later work as the character. Also, it generally annoys me when people say her entire performance was crap, dismiss it and say they're glad she's gone, but they cut Chris Sabat a lot of slack for some of his earlier work. His voice was overly gruff and distracting in his earlier work, and his acting wasn't amazing either, but what happened when it came around to Kai? His voice and performance was far better than anything he had ever put out in all of his time in the franchise.

    He got the chance to prove himself because he kept working at it and had a lot of time to put experience under his belt. But, if he had been replaced for Kai, many of these people would probably feel negatively towards his work on the character now. Who's to say Stephanie couldn't have made a similar level of improvement with Gohan if she had returned?

    In that era of her work on the character, she really started to emphasize Gohan's timidness and made him sound like a sweet, sheltered mama's boy and a pacifist who dislikes fighting. I thought that around this point she really understood Gohan as a character, and her performance started to show an excellent amount of emotional range. Now, I do agree that her voice was pretty raspy and deep in some scenes, but she also had moments where her voice sounded very youthful and clean.

    What bothers me about some comments is that it's almost like they're saying that Stephanie's entire performance for Gohan was the exact same as her Kid Goku, but they'd see that it clearly wasn't if they saw her entire performance throughout the dub.
