    It is definitely odd after hearing it come from a man for so long in english. And it's difficult to believe she's better than the current english voice actor in terms of fit. But skill, there's no question.

    Confound it, so this is why Goku sounded so weird in the original.

    Hes always sounded like that though. The only way you wouldnt know is if you only watched the dub version

    Which makes sense as the dub version is one of the rare cases of dub > sub. In particular, the Funimation VAs and Bruce Faulconer's music are FAR superior for an ACTION based story.

    For the original DB such things were fine because while it had lots of action it also almost felt more weird slice of life but that hasn't been the case since the first few episodes of Z.

    Oops, forgot part of what I was going to say... That's not to say the Japanese one isn't good enough.

    I'm way too impatient and having watched nearly 1K anime and learned a bit on the side I don't need subs or dubs to watch the original Japanese ones, but IF I had a choice of watching a sub or a dub (as in, they released at the same time, or at least by the time I got around to each episode which is usually Tuesday), I'd choose dub.

    Okay good she won, now she should retire. Goku's voice in dragon ball super is awful. He sounds totally like an old lady, his english counterpart is far superior. Yeah she has been there forever but the voice is no longer fitting for the character as it is right now.
