    Default Powerpuff Girls/Z/Inspector Gadget Discussion Thread

    In the Philippines, that is. This comes a couple of months after the Tagalog dub premiered over there. Here's the million dollar question: will it be the Ocean Group English dub that we will eventually get, or will it be some crappy Southeast Asian dub produced by Voiceovers Unlimited? I myself don't know. After all, they got a whole bunch of other English dubs for shows over there.

    I can only hope it will air uncut. After all, it would be very lame if CN butchered their own show. I watched the Tagalog dub and I didn't see any cuts. There was, however, one weird censor: when the villains gather at the street bar to complain about the girls, their beer is (poorly) colored bright green. It looked like they were drinking radioactive waste.

    What would they seriously cut? There's barley anything wrong with it. There was the episode with the Rowdy Ruff Boys Z peeing off of a building and lifting the girls skirts up but that's pretty much it as far as I know. And who cares what they are drinking, how much does that really have to do with the show? It's like a short scene.


    Anyway I figured it would be coming out in the US soon since I saw a US logo but who knows.

    CN's not in a proper state of being to be ferrying over a PPGZ dub. It's barely raking in normal ratings catering to mainstream otaku.

    I'm surprised the Philippines airs shows in English, I thought everything was in Tagalog - are English dubs a new trend?

    The only other shows that I could think of that have English airings in Southeast Asia are the hilarious Malaysian-English DBZ dub and the Odex One Piece dub. I'm pretty sure there are others. It's not really new trend but more like just a niche presence.

    Anyways, the thought of PPGZ in English = LO FUCKING L

    They also made English dubs of Digimon, Escaflowne, Pokémon, Naruto, and Yu-Gi-Oh. Although, the Pokémon and Naruto dubs were so unholy that they switched to the American dubs almost immediately.

    Also, here's the edit that I mentioned.

    GaryPotter, it will most definity be a Ocean Group dub. Simply because Voiceover Productions no longer exists. The group was disbanned years ago. I should know, I mean, I have talked to Chuck Powers, the joint owner of the company. The companies in Asia don't dub anime into English anymore anyway, I believe.

    Wow...
    ...
    ...
    I..
    ...
    I really don't know what to say...I feel like I've been hit with a train.

    ChibiGoku, I'm sorry, but you were DEAD WRONG. This is NOTHING like the Tagalog dub.

    This is seriously worse than 4Kids One Piece. I swear it's true.

    What was changed?

    What WASN'T?

    Well, for starters, the girls don't retain their names. Whether they will in a later episode, or just become "Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup," hell if I know.

    The voices are all so bad, they put Voltron to shame.

    OP and ED gone.

    BGM changed to half assed remixes of original PPG music. Weak.

    The girls sound like the Chipettes.

    Script heavily edited and Americanized. Oh joy.

    Seriously, this is worst dub I've seen in years. Everything is just so badly done, I don't know what to say. This has American Cartoon Network's fingerprints all over it. They've fucked up yet again.

    RomanGod, please accept my humblest apologies. You're right, it IS a bad idea to get your hopes up.

    It's quite disheartening to hear that. Unfortunately, nothing will be done about that online, since as long as it's not done by 4Kids ("LOL BUTCHERS OF ANIME KILLERS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LOL") it'll probably not stir the underaged rage like OP did.

    Uh, here it is folks:

    [YOUTUBE]iv3x-sSjAV0[/YOUTUBE]

    I recognized a couple of voices:

    Mayor: Terry Klassen

    Girl's Teacher: Paul Dobson

    Mojo: Dave Ward

    Miss Keane: Laara Sadiq

    If anyone can recognize the girl's voices, by all means let me know.

    I think one of the girls is the lady who played Revy in Black Lagoon.

    ...

    I think this show sucks. It's not just the dubbing either. >_>

    Ugh... And here someone thought that this show wouldn't be edited. Well, it is. Even worse, I don't think an UNCUT dub will be avalible.

    Leap, Kaku. LEAP!!

    Can't say I care. We didn't need a bloody anime in the first place, leave the cartoon alone.

    Well, the opening and the background music certainly suck.

    Voices are pretty mediocre as well.

    The anime was never created for anyone outside of Japan or who was a hardcore PPG fan.

    So...I take it that there weren't any voice actors/tresses from the original cartoon. : /
