    Official Openings. Fandubs below.

    "Engrish" Opening (It's the Japanese singer attempting to sing in English)


    Latin Spanish Opening


    Brazilian Portuguese Opening


    Portuguese Portugal Opening


    And as for Italy's, France's and Spain's opening they're in Japanese so no point listing them as they didn't dub them (sadly).

    As an Iberian Portuguese fella I was hoping they'd have learnt to not do the same crap they did back in the 90's but they kept the same cringeworthy stuff and what's worse is that the opening was made so badly. What the hell happened to QC, Toei? According to the amazing Wendel Bezerra (Brazilian Goku) over in Brazil they sent samples of different versions sang by different singers to Toei in Japan but I suppose things are done differently, very differently in Portugal (for some reason they even fully translate movie titles completely).

    Ultimately, I feel none of them did a very impressive job as they've proved in the past. Especially in Latin Spanish and Brazilian who did an incredible job with CHA-LA-HEAD-CHA-LA.

    Here are some fandubs so you can see how much better they are (or at least in my opinion).

    English


    Latin Spanish


    Spanish of Spain


    Portuguese of Brazil


    Portuguese of Portugal


    Fandubbers have come a long way and they can even surpass official dubs (fans of the English, Latino and Brazilian versions aren't necessarily too happy... neither the Portuguese one but those eat it up anyway).

    You know, it's a disservice when Toei picks crappy singers (or unfitting) over really good ones. Sigh.

    The weirdest opening is the English one. I and many others can't even make what he's saying.

    Chousetzu Dynamic isn't a good OP at all, in my opinion. Makafushugi Adventure and Cha La Head Cha La are the only songs I'll ever respect as a DB/Z/S OP. At least the tournament OP in Super right now is alright. The engrish intro is beyond weird, wow.

    Because it is the same guy who sang the Japanese version. So he's a Japanese dude who doesn't speak english frequently. So yeah.... He tried his best. ;)

    Don't I know it. :P Toei needs to stop trying to hire their Japanese singers to sing in English it simply does not work. At all.

    Yeah, that one is really strange and unprofessional. I criticised it on the YouTube section (how dare I!) and other Portuguese defended. No comment. lol

    Well, it's um.. Japanese mixed with a little English.

    FUNimation apparently never got permission to dub the opening but they did the endings.

    Ending 1


    Ending 2

    well, it's not like we don't have a choice, In cartoon network Latinoamerica you can listen to the full episodes with japanese audio through the SAP audio channel, including the opening and ending, I was really surprised they included that option, too bad CN doesn't have subtitles.

    Because I watch DBS Dub via a streaming site, I thought that intro was a fandub, as I first heard it during I think episode 28 or so of the sub. That was a year ago, so when I heard it again in recent episodes of the Super dub, I thought it was the streaming site editing that bit in, I didn't know it was official. Quite frankly I skip the intros and endings in the dubs, they're much better in the subs. I have looped the original Super intro hours on end, and I'm pretty much doing the same with the current one, I love them that much. If the dubs allowed for the full opening and closing sequences, I'd give them the time of day, but US network television, trim that shit down because we have squeeze in stupid commercials and stuff. If they still do that, I don't watch TV anymore.

    This captures my feelings pretty much. Hated when they changed Cha La Head Cha La half way through Z's run. Love the Jap Version of Dragon Soul and Kuu Zen Zetsu Go

    Spain offers channels in dual-audio too so the viewers can listen to it dubbed or in its original language. It's interesting that folks can watch Shin-chan in Japanese via a Spanish source.

    I honestly never liked Shin-chan in Japanese as I've grew to appreciate Castellano as the 'original' language of it.
