probably the right choice to cast him as vegeta. pretty sure it would have been worse if it wasnt him.

was he the over 9000 guy? or was that someone else?

He was not the canadian dub. But his voice is way better.

Over 9000! was Brian Drummond. He did a fantastic job as Vegeta and created a template for Chris Sabat to follow. Chris Sabat eventually had to make the voice his own (make the character's voice settle towards his vocal cords) but Brian Drummond was the first to pave the way for the character. He did a really amazing job portraying the sinister side of Vegeta. youtu.be/TX20KuQWH7s

English dub of chinese or japanese anime sucks. end of story.
drpepperdude  +   444d ago
Why... are you japanese or chinese? What chinese anime get's dubbed?
hkgamer  +   444d ago
anime normally only refers to japanese animations.

chinese animations are rare and dont think any has been dubbed to any other language apart from cantonese and mandarin.

i am a fan of watching things with the original voice, however some animes have pretty cool english dubs. i also find light heart anime have a good track record of having a good english dub.

anime i enjoyed in english as much as i did in japanese:

cowboy bebop
studio ghibli anime.

LOL get outta here with that stereotypical weeaboo nonsense. I don't know why so many weeaboos like to think there's no such thing as a bad Japanese dub. There are tons of anime that have great or good English dubs.

Take 'Black Lagoon' for example. It can easily be argued that the English dub is clearly BETTER than the "original" Japanese dub, because not only do the English voices perfectly match the many characters' personalities, in fact, the main characters are actually speaking English in the show's universe.

Cowboy Bebop is another classic example of a flawless English dub. So no, sweeping generalizations like "English dubs suck always" don't work here. It's nothing more than a mentally-bankrupt logical fallacy.

People complaining because they heard one second of his voice in a trailer are retarded. His voice is most likely identical to his DBZ Kai voice.

Sounds like someone else from DBZ I can't put my finger on it...or something... I can do better Vegeta than this.. weird.

It's his voice, if he wants to take care of it by 'modifying' Vegeta, can you blame him.

He sounds like Kai Vegeta, which is best (English) Vegeta in my not so humble opinion.

I liked his voice in the Frieza Saga the most!
The android and cell sagas where good too but after that it starts to get worse...

Hated Kai Vegeta. The original voice actor was the best cause it was a unique voice, and great for a villain.

But he is the original voice actor, unless you are referring to Brian Drummond from Ocean.
Cronoa7x  +   439d ago
Drummond was the original FUNimation voice actor for Vegeta. The Ocean cast was part of FUNimation at the time. Sabat joined in 1999 but FUNi had already had DBZ for 3 years.
