In retrospect, was the (US) Dragon Box a 'monkey paw' release?

Just something I've been thinking about recently, nothing I'm about to type out will be news to anyone, but I just sorta wanted a space to throw my thoughts out, and see how you feel about it in a post 30th Anniversary Blu Ray world! :) I remember the NA release of the Dragon Box being a real triump...

Re: Rumor related question about Nozawa

I've heard about a total recast, but this is also highly improbable at this point. It's a shame, I feel like the boat has been totally missed for a recast. Kai would've been the perfect time to get fresh young talent behind the characters (give us time to warm to the voices, let them grow into the ...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/4/19!)

I'm kinda relieved that you like the early Namek filler! To me its always been on par with the Saiyan arc filler in terms of quality... If not better in some aspects. I think the reason people don't like fake Namek is because it's a waste of time... I used to be the same way! I feel like a lot of pe...

Re: Goku Went Through A LOT of Character Development in the Cell Arc.

But a good part of that reason is because there were strong guys in the afterlife. To me that sounded like Gokuu trying to make it easier for everyone to accept that he's gone. I took it as another example of how he's matured, at least emotionally. Like 'hey, I'm not coming back because I'm dangero...

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

Obviously it isn't overrated, it's one of the single most gorgeous looking thing post-revival Dragon Ball has produced. A lot of people here seem to be viewing that as a side-thing, and not, y'know, the thing? A film is the sum of its parts, and a lot of the parts used to make this film are really,...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

Not sure what you mean by this. Maybe not changing rules, but retcons to some parts (Beerus ordering to destroy Planet Vegeta, Potara one hour fusion limit etc.) And power levels were very inconsistent. Agreed to an extent, though the power level thing is not that big a deal except in the most egre...

This is not meant as a joke btw, this is a serious question.
I don’t believe you.
Sorry for the slight derailment but I'm struggling to believe a lot of topics are made in good faith on this board right now. It's a weird time for me to have come back to this franchise.

Re: Kanzenshuu Members' Favorite Series (2019 Edition) ROUND 2/3

Guess I'll throw in my 2 cents, though there already seems to be a pretty predictable consensus here. I really try to treat Dragon Ball and Z as one series, I know there's a lot of behind the scenes stuff, but despite this it still feels like a natural continuation, if there was no title distinction...

Re: Is admitting to have watched and liked Super like admitting to have done something 'naughty'?

People on the internet think it's hip to hate DBS, it's almost 2020 we had the phenomenally animated Broly movie and people still can't f**king let go of #5 But thankfully I realised the people on the internet are a minute fraction of the actual proper fan base. The DBS retellings were a colossal s...

Re: Is admitting to have watched and liked Super like admitting to have done something 'naughty'?

It's rather something i seem to notice. The tendancy towards Super if you read reviews or even talk to people, is rather extremely critical. People almost don't seem to enjoy it or find it entertaining. At least not generally. But why doesn't this opinion translate into the numbers? Or the other wa...

Re: Would Level Sets be more sucessfull if Funimation wait more?

Okay, I’ve said this before, but I think you guys are severely overstating how much people still care about the FUNimation dub. From what I’ve seen, more and more people these days are actually fine with the Japanese version. Many people who previously had a preference for the dub have become accus...

I honestly feel sorry for the people than cannot enjoy the new content, i really do. I can understand it's somehow more of the same and it's not all as good, but i can't really understand (it could be me) how you can fondly dislike Super, when it basically has the same ingredients as the original s...

I guess the comparison is being called out because it then implies the rest of the footage will look that good, which it won't.

Yes, that's kinda bad. It's good that we're discussing Dragon Ball on this Dragon Ball message board.

idk this smeary watercolory mess looks abysmal to me. It's not (as) cropped and the colors don't burn my eyes, but it barely looks better than the season blu-rays. Gotta say I feel the same.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Well if it's a filter, they added fake grain in place of actual grain they removed, which is intentionally sabotaging the picture in order to fool a few fans. I made a pretty ranty post on the previous page but I agree with you, and find it real scummy.
