I hear GameStop might be getting bought out. It's between two NY based equity companies. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing GameStops get overhauled.
Idk, people complain about GS but I never had much issue with them. There's room for improvement though.

I'm about halfway through R right now. I really love the new dub, even if I still have a spot in my heart for the old one. It baffles me when I see people online say the new dub is "worse" and "lacks emotion." Most things, I can chalk up to a difference in opinion, but I legitimately don't understand that one.

its nostalgia glasses. the new dub is superior in every way, even if we're talking performances only and not the editing, rewriting, censorship, etc that the original went through. luna doesn't sound like a middle aged lady anymore lol

Well, lots of people say DBZ Kai is better and that old dub fans just have nostalgia glasses, so I don't know. I never watched Sailor Moon too much but in general I find that a lot of old dubs hold up surprisingly well.

Kai is also significantly re-edited, too, isn’t it?

Yeah, the biggest change is that most of the filler is gone, but there's also quite a bit of other changes which alter the overall pacing, speeding the show up considerably (like reducing power ups, attack charging, and even time spent on character expressions). Of course there's lots of visual changes, color is noticeably different. I think there's two soundtrack as well, the new one which was removed because of plagiarism and the original Japanese score. Then there's the script alterations, different voice actors, etc.

I personally think that aside from the filler removal that a lot of those changes are negative, but most of it is obviously subjective (some people even like the filler). I don't know how anyone can think the script is better though, the most important and memorable lines lose their oomph. I think it sounds like a direct translation rather than actually trying to adapt the lines properly.

I mainly don't like the censorship, and I think early on the editing is a little bit too fast and loose. also I really don't like the prologue they did explaining that Goku is an alien, etc. Like imagine going right into Kai after DB, it's supposed to be a big reveal from the new big villain of unimaginable power and they just spoil it right off the bat with this weird flash-forward. Nitpicks aside it's just paced so much better and I wouldn't even think about watching DBZ ever again when Kai exists.

I don't really have any opinion about Kai's dub because I've never seen it, but god the old DBZ dub was indefensibly awful and I can't imagine the new one being worse.

I haven't really watched that much DBZ but I don't really like the Kai colors.

Those must be prescription-grade glasses then. I do sometimes miss the granny Luna voice or find myself mentally referring to the characters by their old dub names (Mamoru will probably forever be Darien in my mind, unfortunately) lol

That said, the old dub isn't too bad; I'd say it's about on par with the early seasons of Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc. Clearly very cartoony, but listenable. There are legitimately bad old dubs; I started watching Crest of the Stars recently and had to switch to subs after about five minutes of the English voices. I know I watched the dub when it was on TV, but I guess I had lower standards then.

I think the darker and more mean-spirited riffing in the Sci Fi era of MST3K went well with the overall darker tone the show took. Even the movies were darker in tone than the ones shown in the Comedy Central era.
