EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Dragon Ball VC section we have a little something for the first form of Majin Buu that we see... FAT BUU! We shall begin this with the FUNi dub of DBZ in which Josh Martin voiced Majin Buu here. Josh's work as Majin Buu is definitely his most known role and is probably one of his most renowned performances and I can fairly understand why here. Josh did a rather high voice that does suit his comical and cutesy nature however Josh's performance does also suit on how lets just say Majin Buu can be anything BUT comically cute as well. So to make a long story short Josh's work as Majin Buu does sound suitably childish (both in a good and bad way) and is a good example of the voice work in the FUNi dub of the series.
Now for the EuroCanadian dub of DBZ with Ocean Group Scott McNeil gets to take over the role here. To be quite honest I found Scott's work as Buu to be really underrated as I thought his voice for the role was very suiting for the role as well. While Scott has done rather high voices before his Majin Buu voice is a little different from what I would normally hear from him but that is by all means cool with me as Scott's voice was also rather fitting for Buu's persona as well. (However whenever Majin Buu is being evil I admit I do think Scott does make Majin Buu sound a bit more sinister.) But still whenever Majin Buu is being friendly or being destructive Scott McNeil's performance for the role genuinely worked with the role as well.
In the Blue Water dub of Dragon Ball GT Corby Proctor gets to take over the role of Majin Buu in this dub. Corby's voice for Majin Buu is well to be blunt not all that good, oh sure it is rather high but it sounds rather forced and it can be occasionally kind of hard to understand what Corby is even trying to say. To be fair Corby's performance as Majin Buu seems to be passable enough but still while there are some good performances in the Blue Water dub of DBGT this isn't one of them, its not the worst performance in this dub but its definitely not one of the best. Overall I liked Josh and Scott the most while Corby is a fairly distant second.
