Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

As a collector's edition I would assume that they're going to go beyond what we get from the standard Funimation DB release in terms of video quality. That said, if it's a special anniversary edition, I fully expect it to be limited edition just like the Dragon Box. Hopefully Funimation is upfront ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I don't know if anybody said this , but it could be the new remasters of the movies that Toei released a while ago. That would be nice considering that they never got around to releasing DBox the Movies. However, I think Japan is overdue for a new full home release and if Toei has a hand in this 30...

Re: Lack of females characters in Dragon Ball

For Videl, one avenue I'd take if I were writing the story is saying that her involvement in the Super Saiyan God process allowed her to ever-so-briefly tap into something approach the strength and capabilities of a Saiyan (considering her hair went blonde and all). You can use that either as an exp...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I have already guessed this may be similar to when Toei made the deal with FUNi to license the Dragon Box masters to them back in 2009, so if that's the case they may be licensed it on the condition that they don't mess around with it in that way. It's speculation i know, but there is past preceden...

Re: Lack of females characters in Dragon Ball

It still doesn’t account for Vegeta end of the courtship. I think we’re suppose to assume it was a brief consensual physical thing. And I’m not buying Vegeta has any interest in such things. He's male isn't he? In any case, just reading that Pan was in fact added to GT for the express purpose of be...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Speaking only for myself, if they do that I’m not buying it. I hate it when they edit their shows like that, especially their older titles. They should do what they did with the Dragon Boxes. Just leave everything in tact and add a credit roll at the end of the disc. That’s what pretty much every o...

Re: Finally watched the four Dragon Ball films

Path to UltimatePower...gorgeous animation I honestly think its the best Dragon Ball has ever looked barring, maybe, the most recent 3 movies. I can’t for the life of me figure out why they went back to The Red Ribbon Army when they kind of adapted that with Mystical Adventure anyways. They should ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've got my fingers crossed that they do it right this time, they have deprived the fans of a proper release for so long since the last attempt (Level BD's) and milked their DNR'd to hell remasters not once but twice. For now i am going to hold tight to my Dragon Boxes, because FUNi has certainly l...

Re: Lack of females characters in Dragon Ball

Bulma's relevance fades off in Z. But in fairness, she's back in Super. I think Bulma has spikes and troughs. She's obviously very important in the starting arc, and she features for an entire third of the Red Ribbon Arc thanks to the repair of the Dragon Radar and her joining the adventure (plus t...

Might as well get him to do Broly if they ever decide to redub.

Honestly if that's the case they may as well have Schemmel replace his roles then.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Instead of using those completely inaccurate shortened titles from about every release aside from the Dragon Boxes, yeah accurate translations of the originals would be better like they did with Kai. I tried a mix with my T1C title cards since back in the Dragon Ball anime even the Japanese titles ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

That looks pretty cool, something like the font used for Kai's title cards would look good for this new release. Thanks! I do wonder if FUNi will rename the episodes to match the original Japanese ones better, or go super-authentic and recreate the font of the originals: https://vignette.wikia.noco...

Re: Ch 165: "Help me think up some new clothes!"

There was a contest going on at the time. If you look at the title page for Chapter 163, you can see Goku in his boxers asking for the same thing. I would assume the car is the prize. Huh that's pretty cool! What was the winning entry for it? I'm not entirely sure, but I've seen it speculated that ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Yeah, especially since FUNi stopped including alternate angles and branching video tracks like how they used to on their older DB DVDs. Toei will probably have to go that route in order to provide them with textless openings and endings to make that happen. It'll be interesting to see how FUNi will...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I would guess so, just take what Toei ships them and alter the titles/credits to English and all done. If that's what we are getting then it will be good for those who have been waiting all this time for a non cropped and properly remastered release. It'll be interesting because for that, Toei will...

Who is Derek, may I ask? The Dao Of Dragon Ball . He was involved in the efforts to find and get HG material, during which he got in contact with one of the guys involved in its original production. Derek Padula is one of the main reasons the currently-found broadcast audio for Dragon Ball was pass...
