Aaand Star Gentle Uterus is intact! I can't believe I'm hearing this finally.

A given.

If anyone is curious, no idea if the songs are dubbed yet. None of them appear until the second half unfortunately... really curious if they're gonna go the extra mile to dub them!
Insert songs will be undubbed. Diegetic music will, presumably, be dubbed.

I say presumably because gomen se I’m not honest

I caved in and bought a few myself. 172 surprised me, I actually really thought they did a good job dubbing this one! I think this might be the first time the dub impressed me.

Feels like they really captured the emotions in this episode just right. Was the voice direction kicked up a notch? I think I might be in shock actually hearing this in English for the first time too, haha. I have hope for the Stars dub now.
172 is one of my favorite episodes, and I'm glad to hear it's been given the treatment it deserves.

^ Are the captions in that first video ones that guy made himself, or are they the official Viz captions? Because if they're official...

"Usuagi"

......YIKES.
They're Amazon-generated.

The closed captions for Amazon's digital release of the 1987 DuckTales series are even worse, yet the ones for their digital release of Goof Troop are okay.

Yeah, pretty young-sounding and not very intimidating.

Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if they based their casting choice on how Galaxia's disembodied voice sounded in the Nehelenia arc, which DID sound uncharacteristically young, childlike, and playful in the Japanese version, compared to how she would speak in the episodes following that arc.
That would be giving them way too much credit lmao

SuperS has the yellow tinting
That's a Toei problem, not a Viz one since it was also on the R2 DVDs.

Basically Viz used the Japanese upscale for both seasons on disc (and digitally for the dub) and with that, has none of the issues that were present on the masters used for Hulu (animation holes, frozen mouths and the previews back in their proper place before the opening).
