I am happy
Ocean group voices were terrible.
Only Vegeta was better
Roshii & the crew sounded awful.
Funi carried the voices I was used to hearing from the Dragonball series over.
For me it sounds like a natural carry over.
Whereas the over-dramatic Ocean voices & music was too westernized for my tastes.

I agree with you, Hovi. Vegeta was definitely better, the rest were pretty awful.

But I disagree about FUNimation's new(er) voices, they seem just as (if not more) western-style dramatic as the Ocean Group's voices. Although, it's a toss-up whether I'd rather hear poor voice-acting or one guy (Chris Sabat) doing almost every character.

Though it doesn't really matter to me. I watch with the Japanese audio and English-language Japanese subtitles.

Hold on a minute here, when you say original music what do you mean? Because they did leave the original music from the Japanese version. Please be more specific when talking about it, because some of us may think you are talking about replacing the Japanese intro, music in episodes, and closing.

Funimation's voice actor's were $ h i t for DBZ. I really hope they find a way to bring back Ocean studio's dubs because at least they did an accurate job of voicing the characters.

You are one of the few people that understands Ocean Studios talent. Hopefully they someday will make a dvd set with those voices. It's just not the same as the old I grew up with. Not to mention the new dragon ball z dragon box dvd set. Just having the japanese music and not bruce faulcner. Will not be the same I think it's also not fair. I mean the japanese did a great job with the series. But a lot of the times they just didn't have the right music that set the moment of the fight or the intensity of the scene.

I think its funny that Ian is still listed as a credit for this box set, even though its not the Ocean dub

I'm a hybrid fan. I prefer what I first saw on television so I only like watching the Ocean dub for the first 60 eps. and switch over to Funi for the rest.

It's worth making the switch anyway for the Falconur score since that started in season 3, plus I feel like Drummond's voice was a little worse when he and the rest of the cast returned to dub the rest of DBZ. I'll never watch DBZ with the Japanese track though (or the music). With Goku's horrible voice, it's a completely different show.
