over the past year or so I've gone from a Dub guy to a sub man and I've been re watching all my old anime to hear the difference. Thing is i absolutely can not stand goku's subbed voice. it's like dragging Nails across a chalkboard while your friend skins a cat. Anyone else feel this way or am i in the minority? (i never would have watched DBZ if the voices were like that...)

Yes and no, I like the English dub more then the Japanese but i don't hate it, I can stand Masako's voice as Goku the original Dragon Ball and also as Gohan and Goten when she does that its not that bad. Also because i can understand that its hard for a female to do a male's voice let alone 5 (not counting)

JPN Goku sounds like someone's grandma.  I like the English one more since being a grandmother doesn't fit his character imo.

@sickVisionz:  HAHAHAHA Ironically she plays the role of a Grandmother in both Kirarin Revolution and Hamtaro XD

I totally forgot about hamtaro. I remember watching it with one of my friends when it was on CN.

Masako does a very good adult goku and a perfect kid goku. I say she is better than Schemel, but arguably Kirby is better.

@hitsusatsu11: The voice wouldn't have been bad for kid goku, but it seems to kidish for the adult version.

@rein: I thought so to at first, but from watching DB then Z there are slight changes to her voice that fit the character progression.

See, this is what I'm talking about. Goku's screeching twelve-year-old voice is better than his English dub?

@Kou_Leifoh: Yes, because that is his voice.

I don't think that is a solid reason to believe that the original is automatically better because it's the original. 
 
I think the English voice is way better than his Japanese.

@Kou_Leifoh: The Japanese is what Goku was intended to sound like, as approved by Akira Toriyama himself. You cannot dispute that this is what he is supposed to sound like. However a matter of personal preference is different, I personally think Masako is the second best (that is my second favorite adult Goku) I slightly prefer Kirby Morrow to her. Though for Kid Goku she is undisputedly better than her Funi, Blue Water, and Ocean counterparts.

Toriyama? Looks like I'm going to have to disagree with him. . .

@Kou_Leifoh: He created the character, he chooses how he should sound.

Yes but, I find nothing wrong with just disagreeing with the decision.

@Kou_Leifoh: There is nothing wrong with saying you prefer another voice for the character, as I prefer Kirby. Its just wrong when ppl say "thats not how he should sound".

It's the same as disagreeing. . .

@Kou_Leifoh: No. Its not. I know Goku should sound like Masako, but I like Kirby's voice a little better.

Yes it is. Look, we're just arguing around in circles, I believe that it's the same as disagreeing, and I'm sticking with that.
