Ahahaha, oh wow, is Wendy Powell's Envy terrible. It's just... wow. My god. Funimation, really? Really? That's all I have to say about this.

Some Thoughts On: Dragon Ball Kai (English Dub) Episodes 14-26

As the Nicktoons digital cable channel continues airing Dragon Ball (Z) Kai, I continue watching. It certainly doesn't hurt that several episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender come on after. (I've become a huge fan of that show... Toph is my favorite character!) Now, as last time, I have to put into consideration the edits made for TV broadcast, and I do. Other than the most obvious edits and rewrites for TV broadcast, the script remains mostly accurate, and is still scores better than the dub script for Dragon Ball Z. But, also important, the voice acting is better in places, too.

"Oooh, dad! Can I have childhood trauma? Please? I'll walk it every day!"


Synopsis: Edward encounters his father, Hohenheim, at his mother's grave, who chides him for burning down their house. That night, Hohenheim asks Pinako about the "thing" his sons transmuted, with Ed listening in secret. The next day, after Hohenheim leaves, Ed and Pinako dig up the "thing", and it turns out to not be his mother after all. This leads Ed to believe he can bring Al back from beyond the "doors". When Ed returns to Central, he informs Al of his findings. He also calls Izumi and asks about her own experience with human transmutation. As it turns out, the dead cannot be brought back, regardless of effort. Ed and Al then vow to continue working on a way to restore their bodies.

Some Thoughts On: Dragon Ball Kai (English Dub) Episodes 1-13

Never one to pass up an opportunity to comment on a Dragon Ball-related dub, I thought I'd give a few thoughts on the newest one, the one for Dragon Ball (Z) Kai. I've mostly been watching this on Nicktoons, but I'm aware of the differences in the presentations between the TV version and the DVD and Blu-Rays, and have seen bits of that, too. I mostly wanted to comment on the voice acting, though I have to say, the script this time around is so much more accurate than any previous Dragon Ball-related dub, it's a real shame they couldn't have been doing this the whole time, because now it actually watches like just an English version of the Japanese show in most ways. I'd give them kudos for this, but like I said, this is what they should have been doing for years. You don't get extra points for failing for a decade and then finally doing it right.
