One Piece Funimation Dubbed discussion
 
Anyone else see the dub premiere at AWA this sunday? They showed the first three edits of the TV dub. I'm not a big fan of dubbed anime, but I thought the quality of Dub voice acting improved. The TV edits are as minor as possible... but they didn't change the names back to normal for the TV Dub, but did with the uncut dub. (Ace is still Trace, and Zoro is Zolo for the english version, but the uncut english version uses zoro and ace). The TV edit as far as animation, is edited for a toonami slot, but basically the edits are as minor as possible.

I went, and hung around for the impromptu Q&A with Mike Mcfarland who I think is directing this since the event went over. Most of the stuff has been anounced at other places. I think what was rather interesting is the voice cast had to be approved by Toei and Oda. any one else have any thoughts.

Was there any mention of the DVD releases, like when and with what episode the DVD release will start with? What about the TV, are they going to continue from where 4Kids left off or will they start at ep 1?

They're starting where 4kids left off - the start of Jaya/Skypiea. They did mention, however, that if there were time and enough of a demand, that they could possibly go back and re-dub the beginning after Viz/4kids' rights to eps. 1-143 expire

As for DVDS, from Funimation One Piece FAQ

#5: What about DVD releases? Will they be the TV version, or uncut?
Answer: Uncut DVD's are on the way. By uncut, they mean completely unedited or altered. All of the original content that Toei Animation created for the show will be available in its true form on DVD's. Funi DVD's will be released to the public in 13-episode volumes for $49.99, starting at Japanese episode 144, and will be released in a time period ranging from November of this year to February 2008.

Right on, they showed the first three of the redub beginning at 144. They also said directly that essentially the decision to redub or not rests in pretty much dvd sales of the redub.

Cartoon Network is set to premiere the Funimation dub some time next week, which starts at 144, though the represntitive didn't know the time slot. The date I believe september 29th.

From what Mcfarland said it seems closer to 2008 than 2007. Though they have the first 26 episodes pretty much completly dubbed. From the most part it seems everything is as promised. Unedited Animation, the unedited version restores the names, ect.

There are somethings for anyone who wants to nit pick that are retained from 4kidz practices and mainly translations where there is gray area as to how an object can be translated. Devils Fruits are translated as cursed fruits in the sub, and Log Pose is often translated as grand compass, though if log pose appears in a title its translated as log pose. Funimation has also taken a general idea that a dub is a complete dub, so the songs have been redone in english. However, there english versions songs, with as close as possible translation to the original songs. From whats indicated... basically the DVD has an interchangeable language track, so when one is listening to the subs, the songs will revert to the japanese singer.

General consensus on the Funimation dub?
 
I've just been watching some clips on youtube (Clips) and I've gotta say it's not too bad. I probably wouldn't mind watching it on the tele, just don't know when/if it'll come over here.

Personally, it did exceed my expectations and my favourite dubbed voice is definitely Buggy's. Fits so well.

MihawkXGP 2007-11-07 10:05

I've not seen it to be honest. Although i've seen a clip of Ace when he's on Buggy's ship. Can't say i liked his voice too much. It doesn't fit him at all :rolleyes: Other voices are good though...

AdventSleeper 2007-11-27 22:56

you still have to admit that he mostly sounded like that in the original too

i personally watched all of the released episodes so far on veoh.com and i love the new voices (i noticed that there were alot of voice actors from DragonBall Z/GT, one of Oda's favorite anime)

Actually the voice actress of kid goku does not do Luffy's voice. And I sure am glad that this is the case. I do not like kid goku's english voice. He sounds like he always has a soar throat. If I am correct, I am also quite sure that Nami's voice actress is different than Young Bulma's.

So far, I am loving Funimation's One Piece dub. I haven't had a problem with any of the voices. As a matter of fact, quite a few of them even surpass their japanese counterparts for me. For example, so far I find the voices of Mihawk, Donflamingo, Sengoku the Buddha, Whitebeard, and Bellamy to all be superior to the original japanese ones. These voice actors really brought their characters to life and they sound like how they really would sound. I still need a bit more time to accustom myself to the strawhats voices, because I know the japanese ones so well, but they sure are putting on a wonderful performance. In time I may like some of them better than the japanese ones as well. I can't wait to see Water 7 in english!:D

I watched the movie that came out for the Alabasta arc remake...

I say, YAY! Nico Robin isn't a southern bell!

and from the sticker that was on the dvd "Watch for One Piece TV Series UNCUT on DVD May 2008"

Overall, I'm happy w/ the new voices though Luffy can be a bit iffy at times, his is still pretty good.

They still kept the whole "Gum-Gum" thing...I guess cause I'm still used to the "Gomo-Gomo" saying

Blackbeard D. Kuma 2008-03-20 18:42

Has anyone here bought the newly released Season 1 set of Funimation's One Piece? If anyone has, how is it so far? How are the voices for characters like Coby, Captain Kuro, and Jango?

"gomu gomu" is the Japaneses pronunciation of "gum gum".

Oh, I see. I thought it was coming out in March for some reason because I saw an advertisement online with March the 18th, but I guess this was false. Thank you for the correction.

Thanks a lot for the info xris :). I can't wait until these sets come out. Now that we have a good quality dub from Funimation, hopefully this series will attract a lot more attention from general anime fans so that they can give it a chance. One Piece is pretty much considered to be the successor to Dragon Ball Z in Japan; I hope Funimation can achieve the same popularity phenomenon in North America and Europe.

I got my copy of One Piece: Season 1 - First Voyage from RightStuf today and I really enjoyed it! I give my props to Funi for staying true to the show with their dub... and the only real thing I can ding them for is putting too many episodes on one disc; during some of the action scenes, I could see lines and other stuff around the characters as they moved.

A great start to redeeming a great show! :D

:cool:

I recommend this and hope that they use three discs for the second half of season one.

This is great news to hear. Since you have this set already, do you mind telling me how the voices for Coby, Helmeppo, Morgan, and Kuro are? Thanks.
