Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

I feel like if they were going to DVNR the show then they would have done so with Kai first off. Kai episodes 1-98 actually do have DVNR on them, so the idea of DB/Z/GT getting some kind of DVNR treatment for the possible upcoming HD versions isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility (now gran...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

Did Toei actually DVNR the blu-ray release of the movies? If screenshots from different media players are yielding similar results then it's highly possible although why they would bother to go through the trouble makes little sense since everything was already finished from the start and adding mo...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

They were using footage from the Bardock special and probally didnt want to rescan it. That and the fact that 16mm will ALWAYS look softer than 35mm due to the detail difference between the two film stocks, there's just no getting around that unless Toei actually retained all of the original raw el...

Re: ANIMAX Japan channel will reissue Dragon Ball

Will it have the correct audio, or will it be the same as the Dragon Box? For the movies it's tough to say, I know the streaming versions used the optical tracks but the Blu-ray uses transfers of the original cinetapes so Toei could go either way on those, the TV series on the other hand (assuming ...

Re: Original Dragon Ball anime to be released on Blu Ray in Spain

The second of that is impossible anyway considering the best sources from Japan are stereo at best (at least as far as I'm aware), so replacing the music would be impossible in the first place. Correct me if I'm wrong KBABZ but didn't kei actually somewhat succeed in doing just that at least once (...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

Up until Z movie 3, the VHS tapes were open matte. After that, they started being letterboxed, and the earlier movies were re-released letterboxed later as well. I recall kei17 mentioning this here many years ago. My VHS must be one of the later prints if that's indeed the case because it's definit...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

Not sure how much they considered this in their production, but a 4:3 production would make it much easier to air those films on TV back when 4:3 was the norm. Like I said, they were 4:3 safe, but framed for 1.85:1. Come to think of it, I actually don't recall if the versions aired on TV (and those...

It's such a shame that the Bardock special is the only remaster not announced on Blu-ray. It's by far the one I want the most... If the upcoming Blu-ray release does well enough (which it probably will since the movies are going to be in 1080p and sourced from the original 35mm film masters, not to...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

DB Movie 2 had a Funi DVD single released late in 2005. That might be the best open matte transfer of that film ATM, though there's a rumor of an R3 release with the Funi single master that has a higher bitrate. Doesn't that also suffer from the fps issue? Depends on which source was used, if it us...
