I always like using the dubbing because that's how they spell it in MURICA

but Freeza makes more sense than Frieza.

Magetta is a pretty irrelevant character so it doesn't really matter. Besides, I think they gave him a bit more personality. I would hate for Choo-po to be the only word in someone's vocabulary.

Yeah, I don't really care for the dub voice on Magetta, but he's also such a nothing character that I find it pretty humorous that someone could be outraged over it.

Honestly, I'm into it. It gives him more character than he had before.

Too much time watching TFS's DBZA. It's the type of joke they'd do.

And as much as I love DBZA this and that are two different things.

Not every funny thing Funi does is TFS inspired, especially when a lot of TFS jokes an old hat and they just adapted them.

indeed the animation was good and the music as well
even though it is sprite based he put in some depth of feild and warping techniques

of course the plot is lol but seeing Goku Black with Baby Vegeta and ss4 broly showcases how good Goku black's design is to the others

Baby Vegeta's supersayain form is still hideous to this day

Most GT designs are pretty terrible for me.

I think the only villain design I actually like from it is Omega Shenron.

Baby as a white-haired Vegeta was fine. It wasn't until he into his 'final form' that it became butt ugly. Super 17 would have been fine, if they didn't try so hard for that cool factor.

A lot of the Shadow Dragons looked fined outside of maybe two of them.

Why does something have to be impressive for a dubbing studio to respect the original material and not completely change a character?

Magetta was a cute little character, now he's annoying meme trash that completely misses the point and I absolutely hate it.

Dubs shouldn't change the original intent of the character. You might like it but it sets a dangerous precedent.

So he went from a character that can only say "Cho-po" to one that talks in a robot voice. If a joke doesn't translate then it needs to be changed so it does, that's how translation works.

That's the thing, Magetta was never cute to me. It was his animation and fighting style that made him interesting to me, not his speaking pattern which was a Pokemon. Funi didn't miss the point at all since even in the Japanese subs, characters thought he was a dumb robot by the way he spoke.

So the 'completely change a character', is BS. They changed little since Magetta's character wasn't in his voice since again, he just said the same thing over and over again and everyone thought he was robot.

This is my thing about it.

Especially people going on about it being a "funny meme". Is the Japanese version not its own attempt at humor too?

The lines are irrelevant in this case. The dub didn't even need to do the choo po. Just something that allows Magetta to express emotion through his voice instead of being text to speech

I'm rolling my eyes. The joke didn't translate over so they adapted it so it did. The guy was literally a Pokemon in Japanese. You sound like they changed the core of the character.

That's the thing. Even in the Japanese version they thought Magetta was a robot by his speaking pattern and other oddities. To me, it seems Funi took that quirk and made it more apparent, probably because just saying the same thing doesn't invoked 'robot' to people in North American.

I don't know and I think you should just asked Sabat about the change instead of jumping on the 'they copied TFS' or 'meme bot' train.

Although, I will still say that 'changing his character' is full of it since Magetta could have been mute and still be the same character since most of what Magetta is is in his animation and the way he carried himself, imo.

I think you miss joke then. Magetta being sensitive wasn't revealed until he lost to Vegeta. Before then, everyone in the cast thought he was a machine.
