Why is a 100 year old Oba-chan doing the voice of Goku? Shouldn't they have changed it when he grew up?
>>
Japs have a life expectancy of 150 years, so it's perfectly normal.
>>
>>135848035
It's supposed to show how Goku has the heart of a child even as an adult. Yeah, I don't get it either.
>>
>>135848035
her voice its annoying as fuck..
>>
goku is a kid at heart so he has a kid voice.
>>
Because Goku is a manchild, which is why his nip voice fits.

Unfortunately, burgers think Goku was your typical american sjw because they grew up with a shitty dub that made everyone sound constipated.
>>
>>135848109
It's ok when it's Dukemon.
>>
Toriyama should have chosen Goku's adult voice
>>
>>135848465
He did. He chose Nozawa.
>>
>>135848035
She also does Gohan and Goten. Only Gohan sounds tolerable out of those three.

Not even dissing the Oba-chan, just dissing the people who think it's a good idea to hire a granny for the voice of a man muscular beyond the reasonable.
>>
>>135848035
She has really round eyes

With the colored hair she almost looks like an old white woman

it's the same voice since goku was a kid

you're just another one of those stupid plebs who can't see the brilliance behind it.

While it's nice that they retained her. Her has definitely weakened with age, so watching Dragonball Super feels a little weird now.

People honestly defend this shit?
>>
>>135848035
Because it's more important for Goku to sound convincingly like Goku than it is for him to sound convincingly like an adult man. And with Nozawa's peculiar voice, there's pretty much no one else who could do the job.
>>
>>135848906
>you're just another one of those stupid plebs who can't see the brilliance behind it.
One of those stupid plebs who can't see the brilliance behind one of the most muscular guys in fiction never going through puberty? Okay.

>>135849178
Maybe it's just me, but I think he sounded a bit better in the more recent episodes. Maybe he was just ill and recovered?

>>135849772
>People honestly defend this shit?
Surprisingly, yes.
>>
>>135849277
It doesn't have to be natural as long as it's entertaining.
>>
>>135848107
But he's a lot different than when he was a kid. I don't think nips get Goku's character development.
>>

Whoever gets the job done, whatever works. As always.

But she doesn't get the job done, that's the fucking point. Only Toeidrones, nostalgiafags and Mexicans believe otherwise.

They didn't have the guts to fire an old lady. Also she's probably cheaper to hire.
>>
>>135852583
They changed after all? Why was that? They insisted on bringing the old VA along and suddenly switch 20 or so episodes in? Did the old VA's condition worsen or something?

>>135852765
Literally any dub is better than the original. Even the French dub, and the French dub is shit.
>>
for those who don't like granny goku.
who would you cast if you could choose a new voice actor?
i am curious who else would fit goku.
>>
>>135851831
It doesn't work you fucking moron, that's the whole point. It's time to admit your glorious perfect nippon dreamland screws things up sometimes.

Because it's taboo to fire people from VA jobs.

When they hired her for DB, she was a perfect fit. Old grandmas can do young boy voices just fine. But nobody probably expected to see Goku to be shown as an adult.

And honestly, I think it still fits Goku. What doesn't fly is North Kaios voice. Thank god he doesn't show up anymore.

Good choice! I'll have Bruce Falconer do the american soundtrack
>>
>>135853089
>>135852449
That's your opinion.

For me, Nozawa's voice is perfect.

I grew up with dub as well, but now I can't imagine Goku with any other voice.

A manly voice on Goku would just sound wrong, because it doesn't represent his personality.

You fuckers are fucking stupid

Pretty much. Not really that surprising since you could basically hear the Grim Reaper breathing behind him whenever Kaio opened his mouth.

>Dubs
We are talking about an old granny who won't stop voicing Goku and then you start talking about dubs.

>latin american dub>shit>japanese=english
French is shit which means english and japanese and any other dub is shit but how come latin american is better?
You are one of those faggots from south america who are "my dub is the best" all the time. Fuck off.

Goku is supposed to seem like a 20 year old dude who is ripped but voice and personality of a 12 year old.....while he is 80.
>>
>>135853502
>We are talking about an old granny who won't stop voicing Goku
And I replied to a different poster after that. Are you fucking autistic or something? Is this your first day on 4chan? Do you have any idea how the fucking quoting works? Is having heavy brain damage a requirement for liking Japanese Goku's voice? Because you're not convincing me of your intelligence.
>>
Look man, Goku eats a shit ton, right? Which means that he gets acid reflux all the time. This altered his voice and makes it higher pitched.
>>
>>135853590
Think whatever you want of my intelligence and don't avoid my question.
Why is latin american dub not shit like the others?
>>

you must identify with goku, being a monkey and all.

>Goku's personality is best reflected by the screeching of someone's great grandma
Ok, but you should try actually watching the show and then you might learn a thing or two about who Goku is.
>>135853359
It really isn't.
>>
Nip Goku's voice is annoying, I prefer TFS's, than Grandma Goku, and as Gohan and Goten share the same Seiyuu, their voice is annoying as well. Kid Trunks' Seiyuu annoys me as well.
>>
>>135853925
Yeah, it's funny how by removing one VA you remove 75% of all annoying voices.
>>
She dubs all forms of Goku (kid, teen, adult), Bardock, Gohan and Goten. you can hate her voice but you have to admit that is pretty awesome.
>>
>>135853269
>Because it's taboo to fire people from VA jobs
She wouldn't be fired. She's like the first instance of small child and adult for the same character though. Toei was even thinking of changing Kusao for 8 year old Trunks until he actually tried it.
>>
>>135853853
>you might learn a thing or two about who Goku is.
a manchild

if you didn't get this by now, you're daft.
>>
>>135853524
>Your personality determines whether or not your balls drop
Holy fuck you're retarded. No.

But it's a fucking cartoon, not real life. Having a child like voice for Goku, considering his personality is totally appropriate.

It adds to the show. Raditz for example was an ass, so his voice made him sound like an ass. How much of this do you not get?
>>
Her adult Goku voice was fine 20 years ago when DBZ was atill airing.

But now she's TOO old

It's appropriate to have a five year old's voice for a man in his 40s because he sometimes acts childish
>>
>>135848035
The did, but japan didn't like it and stopped watching DB. So they kept Nozawa
>>
Goku is a manchild

Call me crazy by when I read the manga I don't imagine Goku sounding like an old woman.

>Frieza's voice has grown on me, but it still sounds like shit

Goten and Satan are the only ones with good voices.

because in your world puberty isn't a thing

>>135848919

No one's hating, it's just that she stopped being a fit for the character when the character grew up
>>
80s was dark times to VAs in Japan: underpaid, shitty studios, multiple roles and works at night because one single episode was made all day long. Toei kept her because of monetary reasons.. it was hard to found cheap and PRO VAs who wanted to work in such conditions.
