Dragon Ball FighterZ - Super & Dramatic Finish Exhibition
This project aims to fandub all the special attacks and Dramatic Finishers of Dragon Ball FighterZ. Not too many characters in here will have that much culture shock, but as per usual for our Dragon Ball projects, I'd like for this project to maintain a bit more of the spirit of the original Japanese version as well as create some sort of its own identity with its own takes and voices (i.e. a dude still voices Goku, but similar direction to Nozawa). So, we're going with our own adaptations of the original Japanese terms. So, Goku's last name "Son" will be used more, Saiyan will be more of how they pronounce "Saiya-jin" (so it's pronounced like the color 'cyan'), titles like Muten Roshi will be adapted (for the most part), and techniques (for the most part) will be left untranslated. This isn't really done to be 'better' or replace anything that FUNimation did or telling you which is the better version of Dragon Ball that you should watch. That's on you, and it's perfectly fine. There's plenty of voice actors in my projects that went with these rules, but still love and go by the FUNimation version because that's understandably the version they grew to love. I'm just more of a fan of the original Japanese version, but I rather do our own take on how we would dub it rather than copy what was already done in English.
The format will be done similarly to how dubbed like we have done Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3 fandub we have done three years ago. Here is the example:
This casting call will only be open for characters that have not been filled.
+ YOUR AUDITION WILL BE USED IN THE FINAL PRODUCT. Those cast with Dramatic Finishers will have to record those after.
+ Please follow the pronunciation guide when provided
+ Impressions are acceptable, but I'm a bit more interested in your own take as if you were the first one voicing it (even though we're not)
+ Decent to Good mic that can handle loud, energetic acting. Peaking is inevitable, but we don't want it to happen TOO much. But, that's all I'm going to pick on in sound quality.
A former desert bandit, Yamcha was once an enemy of Goku, but quickly reformed and became his friend and has helped Goku and Bulma in many adventures in their youth. When it counts, he is brave, boastful and dependable as well as a competent martial artist. He used to have a fear of women that he long got over. His signature technique is the Rogafufuken (Wolf Fang Fist)!
Voice: A boy, ONLY Female VAs can audition, will share with Trunks for Gotenks
Son Goten is the youngest son of Son Goku and brother of Son Gohan. His personality mirrors his father's fun loving nature as a child. Together with his best friend, Trunks, they fuse into Gotenks! Though, Gotenks shares more of Trunks' more meaner traits than Goten's.
Trunks is son of Vegeta and Bulma. He's cocky and all around rapscallion, the opposite to his more well-mannered future counterpart. Together, with Goten, they form Gotenks! A lot of his personality is reflected in Gotenks' attitude.
Voice Type: Medium-Low to Low, Big, Imposing, Gruff
Nappa is one of the few remaining Saiyans that were known to survive the destruction of their homeworld, planet Vegeta. An elite Saiyan warrior, Nappa uses Saibaimen as grunts to root out weaker opponents or to assess an opponent's power and skill level; known as Cultivars in the Viz translation of the manga, the Saibaimen are green humanoid creatures that grow from a planted seed placed in the ground, which are stored in a special liquid prior to their use. Nappa encounters the Dragon Team after he traveled to Earth with the Saiyan prince Vegeta in search of the Dragon Balls. At the time, he was responsible for the deaths of Chaozu, Tenshinhan and Yamcha before being defeated by Goku and then killed by Vegeta for incompetence. Nappa is an all around brute of a personality, living for the fight and destruction.
Cooler is a character that appears in the fifth and sixth Dragon Ball Z films as the main villain. He is the brother of Freeza who travels to Earth to seek revenge on Goku. While he admitted that he never liked his brother, he felt that he needed to punish the one who had ruined his family's honor. Despite transforming into his final form, which is one transformation higher than his brother, he is defeated by Super Saiyan Goku. He returns in the sixth film, his remains having combined with the Big Gete Star, a sentient planet-sized machine. This gives him the ability to create an indefinite amount of "Meta-Coolers", which have the ability to constantly repair and improve upon themselves. He tries to consume the planet New Namek, but is eventually destroyed by the efforts of Goku and Vegeta.
He shares many similarities to his brother. But unlike his brother, Cooler is more tact and prefers to act more intellectually than letting his ego guide his actions (...for the most part), but does things in a more ruthless way.
Captain Ginyu is the leader of the Ginyu Force. He is shown to be the most tactically skilled, as he deduced that Goku was masking his true power level by simply watching him fight. While very arrogant and merciless in battle, Ginyu has displayed a strong sense of honor in combat and prefers fairness in his battle. Despite being really over the top, theatrical and hilarious, he is surprisingly strict, calculating and methodical.
"[Intro] "And together we are....THE GINYU FORCE!" -> "This is it!!"
[Victory] "I am Captain Ginyu, a soldier so elite that even crying children are silent in my presence!""
"(sinister chuckle)"-> "Your body... It shall be mine!"
(summoning a member)"Justice!"
(summoning a member) "Show em what you can do!"
(summoning a member) "Together we are the Ginyu Force!"
Jheece (Jeice) is a member of the Ginyu Force, acting as Ginyu's second in command and partner of Burter. Being a red-skinned alien humanoid in appearance, Captain Ginyu best describes him as an extremely flamboyant and showy white-haired mutant. Nicknamed the "Red Magma", he often pairs with Burter for combination attacks, such as the Purple Comet Attack.
Burter is the fastest member of the mercenary platoon known as the Ginyu Force. Nicknamed the "Blue Hurricane", he often performs combo attacks with Jeice, such as the Purple Comet Hurricane. He is very arrogant, boastful, and tends to talk down to his opponents.
Gurd (Guldo) is the smallest and least physically powerful member of the Ginyu Force. Guldo possesses some psychic abilities, including being able to stop time for as long as he can hold his breath; this seems to be one of the primary reasons he has attained membership to the Ginyu Force. In battle, Guldo is cowardly, and desperate, resorting to different tactics to defeat his enemies.
He just makes a brief high pitched shrill in here for his psychic stun.
Android 21 is an Android who appears as the main antagonist of Dragon Ball FighterZ when in her evil persona. Her intellect rivals that of Dr. Gero, though she may be even smarter than he was. Due to her biology, Android 21 has a natural, compulsive instinct to feed (which grew out of control due to cells in her body going berserk). Like Majin Buu, she prefers sweets and confectioneries, her favorite being macarons. However, she has no control over her hunger and constantly fights to keep herself from turning others into treats and devouring them.When her true persona is in control she acts like a kind and motherly woman. When her evil persona is in control, however, she becomes a sadistic and power-hungry sociopath, wanting to "devour" all the powerful fighters, drawing to the point of near insanity.
Janemba is a destructive and aggressive monster who seems to have little motivation other than sadistic pleasure and lust for anarchy. In his first form, he appears more childlike and innocent but becomes much less so in his second one. He is capable of using his power to alter the reality to his liking, with no regard for how it affects others, showing an obsessive need to control.
Recoome is a member of the Ginyu Force. He is the most flamboyant member as he is seen striking poses more often in battle than Captain Ginyu himself, and generally behaving in a deceptively goofy manner.
Android 16 is Dr. Gero's sixteenth Android creation. He was initially designed to serve Gero's vendetta against Goku, who overthrew the Red Ribbon Army as a child but is later deemed unfit for activation. Despite his intimidating size, monotone dialogue, and seemingly dangerous appearance, Android 16 is calm, friendly, and embraces nature and humanity.
Beerus is the God of Destruction of Universe 7. He is accompanied by his martial arts teacher and attendant, Whis. Normally, Beerus is extremely lazy, grumpy, and a glutton for gourmet food. But, he is easily angered and extremely selfish, preferring to display dominance over anyone no matter the consequence (he just would prefer being lazy over his dang job). Despite this, he is very well-mannered, and capable of being respectful to others when it counts.
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
