Typical DBZ Fan on YouTube Presents: Japanese Voices Sound Like Pussies

Body: 

So, often when I read YouTube comments on Japanese clips of Dragon Ball/Z/GT/Kai material, I often run into this little gem:

Yeah, "no offense".  
I know, that's so right, isn't it? I mean, clearly the entire cast is filled with girly, weak-sounding pansies. Just listen to these clips!

Ryo Horikawa as Vegeta:

I mean, really! Listen to that feminine, high pitched whiny voice for Japanese Vegeta. Jeez, what a woman. It's a good thing Chris Sabat saved this character with his all-too-distinct and not generic at all growly mean voice! 

Toshio Furukawa as Piccolo:

Top 15 Dragon Ball/Z/GT Moments (EDITED)

Body: 

So, yeah, I thought I would write about my favorite (animated) parts of the Dragon Ball franchise. It took a while to gather (and in some case, make) clips to go with these entries. There are a lot of good moments in the franchise, even though the overall quality varies, and I'm sure there are plenty of good bits I've overlooked. If you feel I've missed good ones, please do comment and explain why.

15) Z's Finale

 

Series: Dragon Ball Z

Voice Actor Comparison: Dragon Ball/Z/GT - Son Goku (Adult) (EDITED)

I'm just asking for trouble here, aren't I? Here goes!

Original Video - More videos at TinyPic
My pick: Masako Nozawa
Reasoning: Nozawa's adult Goku is a great evolution of her child Goku, retaining a very childlike wonder and charm to it, and Goku's pureheartedness, with a brilliant delivery that brings the character to life. I like how there are all these little nuances to it. Kelamis captures some of Goku's spirit in the same manner, but can be very inconsistent with his delivery, and of course doesn't have those little nuances Nozawa does. Schemmel's current Goku is pretty decent, but not what I prefer. It's a huge improvement from his Z days.

My Thoughts On: Ballsy Streaming (UPDATED)

Body: 


Starting tonight, Funimation will be streaming Dragon Ball Z episodes 1-15 on their website. This is just the first step in what they say will be streaming of all Dragon Ball shows, including Dragon Ball Kai, online, for free. This is an unprecedented feat for the company.

The DBZ streaming uses the Funimation "Remastered Season Sets" footage. The "orange bricks" as they're often called have video that Funimation remastered on their own, causing the loss of detail. They also blew up the picture and cropped it for widescreen, so there's also missing bits of the picture. They also messed around with the colors so that it's much brighter than intended. The better footage is easily the Dragon Box material, but Funimation has decided to go with this.
