So, according to the Codec's interview with Richard Epcar, he'll be on this show. I'm wondering if he's in Toonami Asia's or FUNi's dub. I'd be incredibly pleased if he was voicing in either dub, chiefly as Hit (although it's likely neither dub has gotten that far).

@huzaifa_ahmed Toonami Asia dub is further than FUNimation's dub by a few episodes. They're probably well into dubbing the Resurrection of Frieza arc.

@Nightmare Crusher Good ideas, although I kinda want sure choices for the bigger characters, & Hit in Japanese has an older man's low baritone, so I figured that might be a possibility. He's a sure shot with that kind of character, so I'd definitely be interested. Hopefully whatever it is, it turns out well enough.

@huzaifa_ahmed Wow va legend Epcar is going to be in DBS, great idea but i think its funi dub cus it it were the bz dub he would have mentioned it.

considering the recent annoucment of pack 3 dlc in XV2 my theory is that they got epcar to play gowasu granted the character hasnt beeen confirmed for pack 3 my guess is that their keeping gowasu as a secret and could have a role similar to the supreme kai of time and elder kai in the game rather than a playable character.

plus if the rumors of mercer as zamasu are true and epcar is gowasu it will be a jojo reunioin and that will have u screaming more oras than what steely dan got.

@huzaifa_ahmed Richard Epcar is a good choice for Hit. I also prefer Hit having a low baritone voice. FUNi's choice went is the complete opposite, which I wouldn't have a problem with, but the acting sounds disingenuous and not authentic. Well to me it does.

@Shaun Ince I think he sounds like Marc Diraison, who would also be a very good choice. He just lacks a lot of energy. If Marc wasnt someone like Zamasu, then I think he'd also be a great Hit.

@Abdullab Where exactly did you hear that? Matt Mercer is a likely choice for either the FUNimation dub or the Toonami Asia dub. He's done voice work in a Bang Zoom dub & a couple of FUNimation dubs.

NCZ (Admin)
said at 7:05 PM on Fri Mar 17 2017
@Abdullab

Google stuff is automated. They don't have a source.

I looked it up and what likely happened is they automatically pulled it from an old revision of Zamasu's DB wiki page where someone (without a source) added that Mercer would be voicing him. The system probably just didn't update to reflect that edit had been reverted.

http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Zamasu?diff=1552601&oldid=1552358

Mercer has done work with Funimation before so it's not unthinkable but yeah, there's nothing concrete regarding who it is.

If they don't get Mercer for the Funi dub then maybe there's the off-chance he shows up in the Bang Zoom dub.
huzaifa_ahmed
said at 10:35 PM on Fri Mar 17 2017
@NCZ Truthfully I dunno, this dub seems to be...not haphazard but not exactly a high-profile (for a dub) BZ dub, & Mercer's movin up pretty quick recently - he's only done one or two anime in 2016-17, & this dub for Toonami Asia is even more a "let's just get this out the door" sort of thing than most dubs tend to be. In a way it reminds me a tad of Pokemon Generations' dub. As much as I'd love Mercer in this, I don't really count on it at all - especially considering that a *lot* of people (even some actors who've *never* worked for FUNi, like Ben Diskin) have expressed animosity for the contractual issues &/or simply ignore the auditions for Toonami Asia's dub. This sort of thing happens (on a much larger scale) when things like Futurama look to bring down costs by recasting actors.

Patrick Seitz, for one actor, let it be known that he wasnt in this. & believe it or not, I dont think he's had a DB role for FUNi (although he's been in Bandai Namco's simuldubs for Xenoverse IIRC) - though they should fix that sometime soon IMO. Just my .02 overall.
Abdullab
said at 4:15 AM on Sat Mar 18 2017
@huzaifa_ahmed surprisingly weird he had not a role in the actual db series, even though he was in the xv games and was a script writer for kai, hopefully he should have a role in funi dub of the universe surival arc

I'm not quite sure I'm sold on some of Chris's castings, Jason Liebrecht is a great actor whose Champa lacks the energy I've come to expect from him. He sounds like he's "putting on" a cartoon/creature voice. Caitlin Glass is much more youthful-sounding than I'd expect, although she is certainly a promising choice.

Truthfully I am much more pleased with Turner's castings, a tad unfair comparison seeing they dont have to live up to previous miscastings, but still. One promising prospect for the FUNi dub is James Marsters as Zamasu, that'll be really cool if it pans out. While generally speaking, I feel that FUNi's dubs would be much better if Toei cared about their casting at all (as they did with early parts of One Piece), I think Marsters as Zamasu is pretty inspired & an awesome idea.

Now for Lance Henriksen or Vin Diesel as Hit. :D

It would totally be an out of the box and somewhat dream casting if that happens but my money is on Mercer.

said at 2:13 PM on Tue Feb 28 2017
@Abdullab I do think Sabat said "you wont believe who we got" & Marsters tweeted that he visited his friend Sabat in Texas for some voice-over work. One thing that makes me question it, though, is the status of all of FUNi's productions being non-union. It's so low, he likely wouldnt be *allowed* to do it, legally speaking. Beyond that...I'm sure that even if Marsters has *nothing* on his plate...he's still getting paid better than FUNi's dub - all those Buffy residuals I'm sure add up very well.

(Then again, FUNi *did* get Peter Mayhew for that one dub of the GT movie...)In general though, it's a real shame that *nothing* comes up in the SAG-AFTRA signatory database when searched for Dragon Ball, one of, if not *the* biggest anime properties on the planet. Dragon Ball is one property that could legitimately afford a AAA dub. As much crap as Toei receives (& rightfully so) for their mishandling of things like dub terms in CR subs, throwing away good audio/video, taking years to localize stuff...I feel that more people should hammer in the need for proper wages in the contract. It's such a dumb technicality that separates "post-production" from other works...It's *all* acting.
Abdullab

@huzaifa_ahmed Totaly agree with you on that statement, damn union and non union but in all honesty If that is True my god this is not an ordinaray La voice actor, This is James Marsters a respectable TV Actor who has some great roles on television.

Fans will have backlash at this idea of casting cus of DBE but a similar case was when they casted Asami for Korra but that turned out great plus Marsters is a fan of the franchise unlike his co stars and crew who barely knewed anything about it.

I never thought DBE Piccolo could be friends with funi Piccolo maybe they have drinks with team4star Piccolo and Ocean Piccolo u never know
itsmedeadpool
said at 8:55 PM on Tue Feb 28 2017
@Abdullab I'll be honest. This is the first I thought of James Marsters as Zamasu. Although I like the idea of DBE Piccolo to voice a DB Super antagonist, checking his BTVA database, he has been pretty quiet on the VA side.

Although an actor is an actor, I doubt Sabat will go that far just to cast an anime character. Peter Mayhew for that GT special must have had a good explanation. Maybe he was in the area for a convention or something and said 'what the hell' and did it.

Although Sabat's words "You wouldn't believe who we got..." does ask many questions, but he said that it's an LA folk who'll play the Shinjin. Who knows? Maybe it's Mr. Godly Voice himself Troy Baker, but knowing his current position of fame... it's a tough wrestling match and very unlikely.

Just like you, my money is also on Mr. Mercer.

Would you believe that this is the only anime AFAIK that crashed the Crunchyroll servers because there were that many people trying to watch it all at once. And this didn't happen just the one time. It happened TWICE. Just goes to show that Dragonball is still very popular. And I don't see it dying down any time soon.
huzaifa_ahmed
said at 6:34 PM on Sat Feb 25 2017
@Shaun Ince As controversial as this is on certain forums, I really do think it has quite a bit to do with the Americanized, "hardcore" dub. Similar-ish properties introduced to us pre-Internet, like Ranma, Fist of the North Star, or Ghost in the Shell, rarely pull in those kinds of streaming numbers, & they're just as good, if not better than, Dragon Ball.

There were tons of people who tuned into CN-era (& current, of course) Toonami *just* for the old DBZ dub - ignoring the (accurate) dubs of say Tenchi, Outlaw Star, etc. In no way do I intend to imply that it is *good*, or that it didn't harm the understanding of the property over here...but on Toei (& FUNi's) part, I can certainly see it being the most lucrative situation for them. Although I certainly can see DB having been popular regardless, Toei & FUNi arent the sort of company who'd take that "compromise".

[The people who whine & whinge about dubs (even DBZ's) with no regard to it in the context of dubs as a general thing...are also irritating, & related, but that's a separate discussion.]
Nightmare Crusher
said at 7:23 PM on Sun Feb 26 2017
@huzaifa_ahmed I think that has less to do with the dub and more to do with Dragon Ball Z's frequent action cliffhangers providing a constant need to watch every single episode to understand the full story. All of the shows you've brought in comparison really aren't even the same kind of show as DBZ. The closest is Fist of the North Star which is still a very different kind of series.

I also get the impression most viewers didn't give two shakes about the dub considering the voice cast got swapped out partway through the run and kept on going like nothing really happened.
Shaun Ince
said at 8:39 PM on Sun Feb 26 2017

huzaifa_ahmed
said at 3:59 PM on Tue Feb 21 2017
@Shaun Ince Bang Zoom did not license this show, Toonami Asia (a part of Turner Network) did. It is Turner Network that is paying for this dub, & Bang Zoom (as with Viz, Aniplex, & some old Bandai & Geneon dubs) is being used as recording studio.

The thing with Dragon Ball fandom is that it's almost separate from typical fandom in that the dub is (insanely) popular, & thus you get a ton of people who don't follow how dubs work, how expensive studios/VAs are, etc. Everyone differentiates the "Ocean dub" &"FUNimation dub", & people don't differentiate FUNi as a licensor & FUNi as a recording studio.

I was trying to explain to someone on YT that FUNi did not "replace" voices at their leisure, the "creators" of DB did not pick certain dub voices, & a suprising amount of people don't understand *why* so many dubs exist. It's just bonkers honestly.

I think it's a little inconsistent right now as well vs. Kai/BoG/RoF, but it should probably get back to that standard in a few episodes. Something's up with Sean Schemmel's Goku voice in Super Saiyan 3 form at times as well- it sounds like he's imitating Daffy Duck at points here. Amusing, though, really entertaining.

@The Ear of One The dub airing in US on Toonami US is the one recorded by Funimation in Texas featuring the cast from the previous series and movies like Sean Schemmel, Chris Sabat etc. The one airing outside US on Toonami Asia is recorded by Bangzoom Entertainment in LA. So if you're in US you won't hear the one dubbed by Bangzoom with Lex Lang as Goku and Kaiji Tang as Vegeta. I'm not sure on the full details for 2 dubs, I heard stuff like contract issues and such for airing the dub, but yeah for this case there are 2 dubs. All I know is the one for Toonami Asia (the Bangzoom dub) is more edited and caters more to a younger audience

I think I'm actually more interested in the Bang Zoom dub of Super than the FUNimation dub. No disrespect to FUNi's dub, but for the most part, we've come to expect how the dub will sound like, also we've had a small taste of the Universe 6 characters being dubbed into English.

Also considering it's been several years since a Dragonball product was dubbed in LA, I don't know what to expect. Which makes it that more exciting.

King Kai - Michael McConnohie
Vegeta - Kaiji Tang
Trunks – Haley Lewis
Piccolo – Ray Chase

The one's I'm the most interested in are Nort Kaio, Vegeta & Piccolo. My ideal Piccolo in a LA dub would be Richard Epcar, but I'm curious to see how Ray Chase will pull it off.

@DisneyAnimefan1995 I have no idea who those three are too. They're either new VA's out of the blue, or relatively well known VA's under psuedonyms. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the latter.

@Shaun Ince Micheal McConnohie as King Kai is definitely a very lovely choice. Although Kaiji Tang as Vegeta is DEFINITELY a casting choice I didn't expect.

I mean I never thought that Owain and Vegeta would one day share the same VA, but here we are XD

@Shaun Ince McConnohie sounds like he'll be awesome, Ray Chase has done some very convincing deep voices in HxH and OPM so I'm sure he'll (assuming the direction is good) be fine as Piccolo. Tang though... maybe it's cuz I'm not the biggest Kaiji Tang fan but I don't see that one working. Doesn't seem "tough" enough like Epcar or Sabat (I'm not into Tang's "manly" roles). Maybe he'll surprise me.

Doug Erholtz as Whis is perfect casting for the Bang Zoom dub of Super. I don't know if I'm alone on this, but is anyone anticipating how the Bang Zoom dub will turn out more than the FUNimation dub?

@FUNiman "Ray Chase has done some very convincing deep voices in HxH and OPM so I'm sure he'll (assuming the direction is good) be fine as Piccolo."

I think one thing to keep in mind is that I dont think they're referencing the FUNi dub, moreso just going off the show's established casting choices. Toshio's Piccolo is not a very deep, towering voice, it's a rough, older dude's voice, but I'd compare it more to say Keith Silverstein, Robin Atkin Downes (think Baron Zemo without accent), or Steve Blum than Jamieson Price, Richard Epcar, or Christopher Sabat.

I keep noticing this elsewhere, but I like that Gohan's voice is much more youthful & naturally meek-sounding, Kaiji Tang is much more along Ryo Horikawa's lines than Sabat as well. Also (while I love Ian Sinclair's portrayal & I find nothing wrong with it) Doug Erholtz happens to be a lot closer to Morita. That being said, Ray's voice is perhaps rather smooth for an aged demonic character like Piccolo.

I must be in the minority. Didn't think Tipton's Trunks was anything special vs. other boy roles she's voiced in the past. She doesn't makes the dub any better but even if she was terrible it wouldn't matter much since everyone else sounds great so I can't really complain. Hope Funimation organizes episode count for the DVD/Blu-ray sets so if fans want to skip the Battle of Gods & Resurrection F arcs (which I think most would agree the movies did better even w/ less time) they can buy the sets that have actual new content (Universe 6 onwards) without any carry over

I got round to watching the dub of Super. Pretty top notch as to be expected seeing as the whole voice cast is way more experienced in their roles, just like the dub of Kai.

Speaking of Alexis Tipton, she does a very good impression of Laura Bailey as Trunks. When she speaks normally it's hard to tell the difference between the two. But when Trunks has to raise his voice or yell, I can notice it straight away. I'd rank her second place among the Kid Trunks VA's in the English dubs.

Alexis has taken over another role of Laura Bailey in the Dragonball series, but I'll go into detail on that, on the appropriate page.

@Shaun Ince Well, he's voiced by Masakazu Morita, who voices Tarble (& yes, Whis, but that's besides), so I would understand if they go with that & use Todd Haberkorn. Although the interesting thing is that Morita sounds pretty close to Horikawa, & while Todd's casting of Tarble is based more on Morita's...the same couldnt be said of Sabat/Drummond to Horikawa.

Coincidentally, Ian Sinclair sounds a bit like a younger Christopher Sabat, but I'd be missing the point if we went by the voice alone. Honestly, I dunno what to do with this character. I like having Tarble's actor voice Copy Vegeta, but I also want a more similar Tarble *to* Vegeta overall.

@WrightWay They're not going to dramatically change it up, considering that the whole reason behind this dub casting being the same is that the Americanized dub essentially prints money, & Toei was never really interested in a legit localization (keep in mind they gave us butchered dubs of all their prized shows - Sailor Moon, One Piece, Pretty Cure, Digimon, & DB)...so it's not like they'll demand any changes.

Off the top of my head, if they were going to recast to more appropriately reflect Kaio (although I could see Sean do a decent Kaio, though he wouldnt really be my first choice), I think John Swasey or Bill Jenkins could do it really well.

Also, I dont mean to be rude, but I'm interested in that we use "King Kai" which is a bad translation.

True, I won't deny that, although I'm hoping Kaio gets a better dub voice in the alternate dub (sorry about using his dub name, but I don't find it offensive myself- I mean, Master Roshi isn't Kamesennin in the dub, for example).
huzaifa_ahmed
said at 7:50 PM on Mon Dec 26 2016
@WrightWay "Kame sennin" is "turtle hermit", though. & "Master Roshi" is from the Harmony Gold dub. "Roshi"" is just "master" ("Muten" being an ode to the divine/heavenly)

Several of FUNi's dub terms are from Usenet forum post from fans around 1995. Nothing official, just them picking out what sounds right or wrong from the forums, frequented by people they thought had authority on the subject.

FUNi was run by a Japanese-American, & "Mystic Gohan", "Kid Buu", & a few other dub terms stem from American Internet fan terms off of Usenet. How's that for professional?

Dragonball Super's FUNi dub will be airing in January. They're skipping Buu Saga Kai for the first 26 episodes of Super. Which as we know is just the first two movies adapted into anime form. While I like that it explored a little more in Super, at the same time I think it's completely pointless to watch if you've already seen Battle Of Gods & Ressurection of Frieza.

@Cat_Z That is very unlikely. Laura has no time to appear in any of the Dragonball Super dubs. Her work consists of mostly video games. She is now in 2 Uncharted games. If the production of the new Uncharted game started around the same time the Bang Zoom dub was being recorded, it's basically impossible for her to be in that dub.

Many fans hate Monica Rial as Bulma but life goes on. TBH Clinkenbeard's an overrated actress and lucked into some of her Dragon Ball roles through filling in via earlier games e.g. Mai or because the former VAs moved away briefly or were cut off/shunned.

Nobody at the time thought there'd be new anime (Kai, 2 new movies and then Super) so 'no biggie' plus it was during the years when Sabat used the same 10 VAs in all his games before eventually expanding his roster in more recent years

I have to respectfully disagree with you about Colleen being overated,I think she is one of the best voice actresses around.

As far as 18 goes I liked both Colleen and Meredith in the role.

@Darkness Dragon

Never said she was a bad actress. She's actually very good (better than the average dub VA) but IMO she's perceived to be better than she actually is. When one is constantly cast in popular titles their name is going to get out there. But on the other hand there are VAs who have worked on less popular things who have delivered performances as good or better than anything Colleen has done in her entire career. If the situations were reversed I'm not sure it's a safe bet Colleen would thrive in that less appealing situation; she's been in plenty of things that are forgettable and fans rarely talk about.

@gohan18Kai More people probably like Colleen's version of 18 because that voice fits the "bratty, rebel, angsty teenager" role that Android 18 had in the Androids & Cell sagas. Given the character's background, being kidnapped by Gero as a teenager, it's fitting.

But the drastic change of pitch and tone of voice... That's what got to me. Android 18 isn't supposed to be 100% a "rebel teenage" character.

Calm, cool, collected, and throw in a touch of sarcasm. That's the type of character I see in 18. Me, personally.

I suppose I should say I can't 100% judge Colleen's full performance of 18 until the Buu Saga of Kai airs on Toonami.. But Colleen as Android 18 is what made me STOP watching Kai in the first place.
If Colleen delivers a more mature, sarcastic, cool performance of 18 now that she has "grown up" after marrying and starting a family with Krillin... Then maybe I'll give her a chance.

Until then.... The original is way better for me.

@gohan18Kai "Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!"; "Plan to Eradicate All Saiyans"; and "Episode of Bardock"... Those never received an English dub. After GT, North America may have gotten movie dubs (I forget release years, sorry) and game dubs... But before Kai, there were no anime/episode dubs.

I don't know the full story, I actually found it out from browsing on here back when Kai was first aired, but there was more stress for the cast of Fullmetal Alchemist to reprise their roles for Brotherhood over the DBZ cast. Meredith McCoy came back for Brotherhood, but not Kai. Both being dubbed around the same time.
And given Meredith no longer living in Texas, it made sense to recast 18.

So why, after these years of Kai not airing in the US, would it make sense to recast 18 once again just because Meredith is more active with Dragon Ball dubs at Funimation?

I'm not sure what happened with Kai to not have it dubbed and airing sooner than 2017. In Japan the Buu Saga of Kai aired in 2014. A 3 year difference could mean anything; struggles for rights, lack of popularity, or even Funimation wanting to release more popular (like Attack on Titan; Free!) and newer series before continuing a Dragon Ball dub.

I couldnt even begin to tell anyone what changed their mind, to contact Meredith and have her FINALLY come back for 18. It could even have been for personal, profit reasons on Meredith's part. Maybe Funi and Chris Sabat that after all these years they wanted the original cast back together as a reunion of sorts.

Kai and Super, though both Dragon Ball, are two separate shows. One produced to be more faithful to the manga. And one to serve to fill the gap between the defeat of Kid Buu and the 28th(?) Martial Arts Tournament at the end of Z.

Shame Laura won't be Trunks anymore, wonder if she at least still voices him in the Buu Saga of Kai (whenever that gets released)

Wouldn't consider myself a fan of Alexis Tipton but I kind of feel sorry for her that a lot of people only see her as a lesser Laura Bailey or 'ideal' voice match when the latter isn't available. Micah Solusod has (and still kind of is) perceived as a lesser Johnny Yong Bosch; those labels can be hard to shed and I'm sure those VAs would like to be seen and recognized for their own efforts than always be compared.

Honestly I kind of wish Sabat had cast someone newer. Matching or surpassing Laura isn't going to happen but had he cast someone new at least it would've boosted their career and as a newbie may at least get some leeway from harsher critics than a 'veteran' would.

Jeannie Tirado sounds more like Laura than Alexis does and IMHO already is more talented than Alexis who's already hit her limited ceiling. Shoulda, coulda, woulda...

Yeah I feel kind of bummed when people do that to be honest. It can be a bad habit to only view an actor as "the (x actor) of (y) region/dubbing pool/etc.". Actors are all individuals with their own unique skills and abilities so to me I always feel like it's not doing them justice to look at them as only the equivalent of someone else. I like casting changes where directors tend to take a bit of liberty while remaining true to the character's spirit.

Even in DB I was kind of bummed that they had Travis Willingham do a Dameon Clarke impression when filling in for Cell, because I always felt like Travis's natural voice would have worked just fine and made the performance stand on its own two feet a bit better.

@lazydude500 Maybe she might return in video games, but this isn't the first time something like this has happened. After all, she stated that someone else needed to fill in for Rise Kujikawa in Dancing All night due to scheduling conflicts. In fact, scheduling is the main reason why Troy Baker can't do anime anymore. When he was recording the Persona 4 anime, half way through the series he had to be replaced since he was getting married and had to go on his honeymoon. After that, he was called to do so many video games and so many other roles outside of anime that he had to leave it behind since anime schedules are so strict especially at Funi. However, there are rumors that Troy would like to get back into anime, but of course, with all of the VG work he gets and other forms of media, he's just too busy for it, even if it is backed by a union. From what I know, Laura is still doing anime occasionally such as Naruto, some union-backed projects, games based on anime, and movies. In addition, if we want more union based actors in anime, one thing we can do is support the companies who dub, and BUY ANIME! You see, if we buy more anime the companies make more money, the companies make more money it means they can expand and hire more professional talent. Hell, anime is becoming a lot cheaper these days, so it's easier to buy. If we show the companies that we love anime as much as video games and help it become mainstream like games, just imagine how much it would expand.

Though at same time. Maybe this could be one of those things where Alexis gradually understands the character more and makes Trunks her own. Like Sean said, for example, at first all he did was copy the Canadian VA for Goku. He said it wasn't till the SS transformation that he felt like he could make Goku his own character. And he's done a pretty good job since.

@Unknownsage13 Generally speaking, from what I have heard, as an actor is a human being with separate acting choices, of course you start out with similar voice, but you gradually become more of your own character later on, if that makes sense.

Idk if I'd compare this situation to Ocean->in-house, with *non-actors* at the time, tho. FUNi grew since then, & in this case, they're not going to grow any bigger. Alexis is pretty good, though, & she's pretty much in line with FUNi's talent in general. Heck, I'd say she's one of the better VA's in their talent pool.

I don't watch *that* many dubs as (no offense) I sort of feel that theyre unnecessarily low-end, *but* I do think Alexis will do well at hopefully getting used to that. lazydude up above pointed out that Jeannie Tirado (ik her through Twitter FWR) sounds closer & possibly would be actually *suited to the character*, whereas Alexis doesnt do many boy roles & theyre obviously picking her for her Laura-alike voice.

That being said, I have a reasonable belief that Alexis will do fine. I do find it fascinating that a lot of these people (I mean this is the DBZ dub, widely beloved for all the wrong reasons lol) don't get what Bang Zoom is or that anime - even DB, mainly because cheap - doesnt pay great, & assume that Schemmel & Sabat are some sort of millionaires lol.

I know it may seem like a huge bummer that Laura isn't reprising Trunks, but Chris Sabat explained on twitter that the reason why she couldn't is because she's extremely busy in LA right now. She's doing a bunch of stuff on Geek and Sundry, she's participating in the SAG AFTRA voice actor's strike, she's still auditioning for many forms of media, etc. Not to mention the show was being cast during the fall season, Fall leaning into the holiday season is the busiest time of the year for everybody, including voice actors, so she wouldn't have enough time to go to Texas to record for DBS. Then there's also factions due to her being part of SAG AFTRA, Texas is a right to work state and she's in the union, while she could audition for DB, there's a lot of red tape in her contract that prevents her from working at Funi at the same rate as Texas-based voice actors. However, there's also more of a chance you would find her in an anime that was backed by the union since she is the lead in the smile precure dub and that dub's recording was backed by the SAG AFTRA union. So considering everything that has been happening in Cali right now, let's give Alexis a chance, she's not an amateur actress and has been with funimation for a long time.

@Girlygeek43

Thing is just because someone has been doing something 'for a long time' doesn't mean the individual gets an automatic free pass.

For example I doubt the average fan even knows who Anthony Bowling or John Gremillion are when they've been in a ton of anime; more than the average anime VA. (Not saying they're terrible btw, they have their moments but they aren't talked about nearly as often as others)

And there are other VAs who have been employed for a decade and are dreadful.

Nobody's going to complain if actor X drops out of a movie and is replaced by Morgan Freeman; fans see him as an upgrade.

Majority of Marvel fans weren't heartbroken when Terrence Howard wasn't going to play Rhodey anymore because Don Cheadle was perceived to be a better actor (or Howard's performance was forgettable so the bar wasn't set very high)

Like it or not the question is will Alexis be as good or better than Laura and there's a very likely chance it will be a no. Being serviceable or ok isn't enough for some fans. They want a replacement at least as good and considering Laura is one of the best in the entire industry and Alexis isn't that's a lot of unrealistic (unfair) pressure.

Not having Laura Bailey back is kind of a bummer. Makes sense though, a one time recording for Xenoverse is much less time consuming than a full series like this. Glad to have Doc Morgan back though, he's my favorite DB narrator, tied with Brice Armstrong.

Many will probably disagree but I am glad Doc Morgan is doing narration again instead of Hebert, had that Brice Armstrong quality that I adore (helps that I prefer the original to Z).

The lack of Laura Bailey is mildly disappointing but as proven multiple times Tipton can voice match Bailey excellently so it's not a huge loss. In short, still hyped (though not so much for the movie rehashing...)

@itsmedeadpool

Willing to give her a chance but IMO she's a very overrated actress and TBH often whenever she tries to sound emotional she unintentionally gives off an irritating vibe instead of an intended sympathetic one. Takes me out of what I'm watching and it's a distracting trait that I'd like to see disappear.

Hopefully Laura can still voice Trunks again at some point (new game or possibly new movie if another gets made); there's no shortage of cartoon work in LA but with the video game strike ongoing that's still a significant loss in pay/work so maybe she'd be willing to make a couple trips to Texas in the near future for some anime gigs. But even if she doesn't I guess the silver lining is she won an award for Trunks while she could.
Shaun Ince
said at 4:24 PM on Wed Nov 30 2016
@JF1991 The only hope we have to hear Laura Bailey as Kid Trunks again is if she has reprised her in the Kai dub of the Buu Saga. That's our best bet. The only time we actually heard Laura in the Kai dub was as Kid Vegeta. Perhaps during the recording of Buu Saga Kai, she was able to finish. We'll just have to wait & see.

Super started off great, with a really lighthearted yet funny atmosphere, and as Shaun Ince said, it came off as more like Dragonball at the start, then it hit its low point IMO so far with the rehashing of the events of Battle of Gods (though even then, there's some really funny moments, notably anything involving Vegeta), and as of late we got a great arc with Future Trunks and Black Goku that's recaptured my interest again in the Series, though it's more akin to Dragonball Z now- it seems to be picking up on the slack, though, and I'm glad about that much.

There's been some infamous QUALITY animation in it, though, but at least it was good for a laugh, if nothing else.

The VAs from FUNimation's dub have exclusive contracts that make something like "doing your character in an abridged series" illegal. It's confirmed that way for Schemmel, & I'm pretty sure it is that way for VO in general.

Although it would be funny if there were casting gags as references to the FUNi dub. Or *possibly*, the characters done under code-names, that'd be the only way I think "reprisals" would be possible.

itsmedeadpool
said at 10:29 PM on Sat Nov 26 2016
@Jason Wade It's not a matter if they bring her back or not. It's more of whether Laura is available to reprise him. Ever since she moved to LA, her anime titles has decreased and she has been involved in more DC/Marvel and non-anime shows. True she reprised Kid Trunks in Xenoverse 2, but she didn't voice one of Gotenks' multi-voices in the game (Alexis Tipton provided Trunks' part -- Alexis approved this). Unless she's still willing to voice him, chances are tough to say for certain.
Shaun Ince

@huzaifa_ahmed So to speak they do have free will on that decision, but it may be a matter of if she's still allowed to voice him also. My guess is she signed the binding contract recently and she and Travis are heading into the Troy Baker direction (big dogs) where their anime days are pretty much finalized (this may be wrong as a matter of speaking).

Also it just got announced that Alexis Tipton is voicing Kid Trunks in Super.
huzaifa_ahmed
said at 1:57 PM on Wed Nov 30 2016
@itsmedeadpool Welp, that settles it then. Pack up your Laura Bailey favorite-stars, anime fans, no use for it any longer.

...Laura & Travis have been heading this way for ages. Ideally (from an actor perspective), *all* VAs are heading this way - no one wants to be poor, y'know.

Anyhow, of *course* she's *allowed* to come back. It's not like FUNi had some vindictiveness towards Laura, obviously theyd *love* to keep working with such a phenomenal talent. But clearly they didnt feel that Laura was worth it to offer enough to bring her back, & well, "Alexis is good enough, so we'll use her instead"

I sort of dislike this mentality. "Actor A is successful, let's go cheaper & use Actor B, because that success doesnt matter to us & it doesnt really matter who plays who if their build/tool is the same."

It sort of devalues what the actor puts of their *self* into the character, & it's a tad insulting to the audience assuming "well, they wont be able to tell" (tho tbf, theyre often right in this regard).

* & it's not like FUNimation *couldnt* pay decent for Laura, when *plenty* of *Hollywood* franchises are smaller than Dragon Ball's English-language sales. The dub is probably *the* most ubiquitous anime-esque thing in all of the West (well, besides Pokemon, because Nintendo owns the channel).

I have to at least appreciate that they got someone pretty close to Laura, credit where credit is due. It just irritates me a little when you consider their huge monopoly, & Dragon Ball being as big as it is. Grr.

@Unknownsage13 That's what many are suggesting. Beyond the massive financial lack of possibility of hiring AAA union VAs for a joke casting...thematically it makes much more sense to hire Abridged Vegeta as Copy Vegeta, rather than the Vegeta that Sabat's is *based on*.

Either would certainly be a better idea than just getting Sabat to do yet another role in DB.

& as an aside, it's interesting to point out that in the Japanese track, Copy Vegeta is played by Morita who plays Tarble (& Whis, Ichigo, & Tidus, aside), as a sort of young sound-alike to Vegeta himself. Just purely sonically, I dont think that'd work in the dub, seeing as our Vegeta is a lot deeper & I dont think Todd would be able to capture that "Vegeta-alike" sound too well. Intereesting that Sabat mentioned in an interview that while he cast Todd as a fill-in voice in 2008, he might keep him if Tarble isnt too different in Super, or if he doesnt interact with Jaco a lot.

If they do decide to change up Tarble's dub VA to more reflect that, I think Ian Sinclair (who, coincidentally, also plays Whis, like in the JP track_ would give off a young Sabat vibe, I think.

So episode 3 basically confirms the TV series will basically retell Battle of Gods... But being Toei the TV series budget is cheap so I doubt the upcoming Goku vs. Beerus fight will look as good as the movie unless they just splice and reuse that movie footage but they wouldn't do that would they?

*cough* Dragon Ball Kai what? *cough*

I guess this means eventually Dragon Ball Super will retell Resurrection 'F' also before FINALLY moving onto brand new material e.g. that fat Beerus and long hair Whis look-alikes

Not sure how I feel about this. Sure we maybe fans get better pacing for this story arc but the movie budget was a lot higher so the animation in scene vs. scene comparisons won't be kind to Dragon Ball Super

Unless this is actually all part of some larger plan involving the multiple universes so the slightly different timeline in Super doesn't have to match Battle of Gods exactly; history is just repeating itself in another universe?

If not then I guess hence forth new fans to the Dragon Ball franchise will just have to decided whether they want to watch the movies or the first couple story arcs of this TV series (but being fans they'll probably watch both!)
