Kinda surprised, although with this still being a thing I guess they couldn’t ride out the heat for much longer without their image really taking a hit

On a personal note, dude can go fuck himself.

Shame he got away with it for so long considering the career he's had and the immeasurable number of people he's hurt, but I'm glad he's finally seeing some kind of repercussions for his actions at last. Super huge thanks must be given to MarzGurl and all of the women who spoke out to tell their stories to try and put an end to this creep.

Guess I'm not buying DBS Broly then. Shame, the movie looked pretty good too.
Just listen to it in Japanese or, better yet, the GOAT Latin spanish dub. He’s not getting royalties. If they redub him in DBS why not redub Fullmetal alchemist as well right? That’s just not how any of this works.

I just made the mistake of seeing some of the replies to these tweets. Wish I could say I was surprised, but I am not. Still very disappointed.

Can the DVDs/BluRays be purchased without the English track?
Yes. Import the Blu-ray from Mexico. It’ll have the Latin Spanish and JP tracks only but I’m not sure it would have English subs but I guess we’ll know soon enough. Sometimes they do so I’m not sure.

Like I said, he’s not getting royalties from your purchase. He already got paid for his job and that’s it.

Vic wouldn't get royalties for the home video release. Usually, VAs are already paid once they complete their voicework.
In addition, royalties are primarily around actual screen appearances, and are negotiated by SAG, which has no bearing on most anime voice acting (currently).

Is that happening? If so, then this story has a happy ending.
There will probably be more appearances of Broly in Super moving forward. Those scenes will have a new actor. They’re not gonna go back and re-record multiple shows worth of dialogue to erase him, though.

I was being sarcastic. What’s done it’s done. No one will pay money to redub work that’s already done after-the-fact. Especially if said work is years and years old and wouldn’t translate into more sales to make up for the additional investment. That’s just not how this works.

Guys they won't redub the movie. They'll recast him for when Super inevitably adapts the movie to TV though.

They're not going to spend more money covering this guy's ass.

The amount of shit packed into these thread titles is really something else. Only charges missing there are animal abuse and necrophilia.
