Re: VHS Fansubs

I don't know if I have anything particularly unique, but I THINK I have the following fansubs on VHS: -The entire Z series -All of the Z movies -Z TV Specials (not too sure on this) -Z OVAs, or whatever you want to call them... -First 13 episodes or so of DragonBall (just the Nippon Golden Network o...

Re: Dragon Box FUNimation Survey

Yeah, clearly it is best to just vote once. Abusing a system like this is never a good thing. However, I get the feeling they were probably planning to release another DBox anyway since they ended the Blu-ray release and the Z DBoxes have finished, and this survey is just to help them decide which o...

Re: FUNimation DBZ TV Blu-ray Official On-Going Thread

Well, can't say I didn't realize that there was a chance this release would be quickly axed. Seemed much too ambitious.

A real shame. Maybe the prices will drop and I'll pick them up just for the hell of it.

Re: Would you buy all Dragon Boxes if FUNimation released th

Absolutely. I'd buy all of them. If they released a set containing all the special features from the Boxes, I'd buy that, too. I already have The Movies and DragonBall in Japanese DragonBox format, but subtitles are always nice and I actually like the smaller Box size that Funimation used for Z. Plu...

Re: Dragonbox 2 outragous price.....

Yeah, good luck getting that full gift card amount for a trade-in. I think the "up to" qualifier will certainly come into play for this.

Re: FUNimation's Dragon Boxes have indeed been discontinued

Well, back into the Disney... er, FUNi Vault they go :roll:

Ordered #5 today. Need to get the last two soon... I hate doing this since I haven't even managed to watch all of what I currently own, but I'd rather get them cheap now than risk paying full (or higher) price later.

My 60 year old father likes DragonBall Z. We watched through the first US DragonBox Z and a bit of the second one not too long ago.

Re: Do you understand Japanese?

I minored in Japanese, but haven't done much with it in a year or two and my kanji knowledge is very poor. I have enough of a basic understanding that I could probably translate simple manga with the help of kanji and vocab dictionaries.

Re: Is getting the rest of the dragonbox's worth it?

The DragonBoxes have better video quality than anything available right now (who knows how the upcoming Blu-Rays will look in the end) and have all of the correct OP/ED videos, title cards, previews, etc. Beyond that, I don't think they have any actual episode scenes that were not in the season sets...

Re: Toei deleting Dbz videos issue

Wow, I hadn't heard of that lawsuit (I guess I don't really keep up with any anime news or anything). Hopefully they just leave it as a "making an example" lawsuit and don't actually try to get a lot of money out of the defendants in the end. There is no way any of those uploaders have (or would eve...

Have any doujinshi focused on Goku's childhood days/the "original" DB? Preferably ones that were actua...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I wouldn't mind checking out the other 2 DB games though, specifically the "VR VS" game. I'd like the PCB of that one. It looks interesting rather than being an ordinary Street Fighter clone. Yeah, I also collect arcade PCBs (I too own the 1992 Macross PCB you mentioned - a much better Banpresto ga...

This is very frustrating maybe ill give away all 7 dragonboxes to someone as an x-mas gift if i plan on buying 2 of the blue rays.... Why did they have to do this!!! I wouldn't count on this just yet. We don't have enough material from the Blu-Rays yet to make a real judgment of quality and how it ...

Re: Just how accurate are the Dragon Box colors?

So... about TV color adjustments, is there any way to make the skies look more "correct"? I would think boosting the blue would mess up the rest of the picture. I've adjusted monitors with RGB pots, but don't have much experience with actual TVs. And honestly, unless Toei goes back and does proper c...

Re: Just how accurate are the Dragon Box colors?

Out of curiosity, can anybody say if the Daizenshuu - TV Animation 1&2 colors are accurate to the original broadcast colors or whatever? I'd like to compare them to the DragonBox and what we will have from the upcoming Blu-ray release.

Re: Which release contains the best quality for Dragon Ball?

I like the Dragon Boxes. I have the movies one, original series, and I plan to get all of the US Z ones (as well as whatever other ones Funimation is able to release stateside). Sure, there might be a bit of issues with slightly pinkish-skin tones and the sky might be a bit too green at times, but i...

Re: A Fellow Member Converts

When I was a kid, a friend introduced me to the show with the English dub. At the time it never felt cheesy or anything. The music seemed good and the voices all worked for me. At some point during middle school, though, I watched small bits of the original DragonBall series online (with the wonderf...

Re: Dragon Ball Z Movie Pack 1 (1-5) DVD set at RightStuf!

I am still hoping for a domestic Dragon Box: The Movies, but this release gives me even less confidence that such a set will ever be released. If it is I will surely jump on it, but these sets seem cheap enough to justify me buying. If I already had the steelbooks, I definitely wouldn't buy this, b...
