Upon learning of Charles Martinet’s casting as Magenta, DBZ and Mario fans alike were beside themselves with enthusiasm.

In celebrating the news of the Mario voice actor entering the world of Dragon Ball Super, Twitter user Scott Frerichs shared Super Mario Bros. Z concept art.

And JOLLY J noted the strangeness of Martinet joining Dragon Ball Super while missing a chance to play Mario in the Chris Pratt-starring Super Mario animation.

Mario and Dragon Ball fans residing in the West will not want to miss the film. On top of the legendary Mario voice actor appearing in the English dub version, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has received mostly positive reviews, thus far.

Everything from the animation to the overarching plot has garnered high marks from critics. For now, though, it’s unknown whether the English dub will do the film justice in the end.
