Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

They do use Dragon Box footage... but only for GT and the last two seasons of Z (and only when watching in Japanese).

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/11/17!)

Curious thing about that plot hole regarding Goku's spaceship, I seem to recall the Portuguese dub actually had Dr Brief say that it was in pieces, but that he'd been able to salvage enough of it to build the version he took to Namek.

Re: DO NOT buy the movies on Amazon Video (Japan)

So today I noticed that the 13 Dragon Ball Z movies were streaming in HD on Amazon. "What's this? An all new remaster?" I pondered to myself. Well, let's just cut to the chase. It's the exact Dragon Box footage with some upscale and DNR. Here are some comparison shots of the movie Dead Zo...

Re: Is being able to watch original DBZ in a non-cropped format for a reasonable price too much to ask?

If you speak either Spanish or French, you can import 4:3 sets with subtitles in those languages for sane prices from Europe. But if you only speak English, yeah, you're pretty much screwed. By the way, the last two "seasons" of DBZ are in 4:3 on FUNimation's streaming service if you watch...

Re: Has Dragon Ball been remastered to HD or not?

On a side note, Dragon Ball Z appears to have gotten the same treatment. Dragon Box master in 720p. https://i.imgur.com/6AKCuw3.png That's the bitrate, not the resolution. 910kbps would be pathetic for 720p (Netflix typically go around 3mbps for 720p video, for what it's worth...) Fair enough, but ...

Re: Portuguese Dub, perhaps?

I was actually impressed by Vegeta's explanation of the Bruits Waves. I thought that they would chalk it off as nonsense, but then I went back to watch that scene, and they kept everything intact. Actual plot information like that is generally kept intact. The jokes they throw in are more during on...

Re: Portuguese Dub, perhaps?

Yeah, kinda. But unlike early Funi who rewrote entire plot lines for no reason (Bardock the scientist, anyone?), the Portuguese dub only added jokes — the actual “important” lines were all intact (well, as intact as we got them from the highly edited French dub anyway)

Re: Portuguese Dub, perhaps?

Most people who only know of this dub from YouTube clipshows are under the (very mistaken) impression that the dub was filled to the brim with nothing but jokes. That isn't the case at all. They merely occasionally added random jokes here and there where they could fit them. I'd say around 95% of th...

Re: Romanized Spellings on Japanese Merchandise

I meant, as far as I know, 烏龍 is not "Woolong" under any standard Chinese romanisation method. It's Wulong in Pinyin and Wulung in Wade-Giles.

Re: Romanized Spellings on Japanese Merchandise

Wait, what about Yamcha? Why don’t you guys use Yumcha? "Yamcha" (or Yam2 Cha4 if you want to indicate tones) is in fact the proper Yale Romanization of the Cantonese name for the dining custom. Under the Jyutping Romanization system the Cantonese name is spelt Jam Caa, while the Mandarin...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Apparently the opening and ending subtitles match CR exactly, whereas the episodes themselves are completely retranslated.
