Re: Dragon Ball Super To Air in the UK on Pop!

I have to wonder what they did to Episode 89 to get it suitable for broadcast. I wonder if LostTimeLord happened to record that one Funnily enough, that's the only episode from "Series 2" that didn't record properly (due to Vegas crashing my PC while it was on). Fortunately, I recorded the repeat. ...

Re: Is it fair to say that Dragon Ball is no longer marketed to kids in North America?

What do your mean, "heavily" redubbed? I was under the impression that the changes in dialogue in edited Funi Super were on par with the changes in dialogue in Nicktoons Kai vs uncut Funi Kai I'm speaking about DBS in comparison to other kid's shows moreso than Dragon Ball in general. Pretty much e...

Re: Is it fair to say that Dragon Ball is no longer marketed to kids in North America?

Since we’re on the subject of MPAA ratings, I was actually pretty surprised back when Dragonball Evolution was given a PG rating. [...] Fox must’ve agreed that Dragon Ball is strictly kid’s stuff, if they didn’t even bother shooting for a PG-13. The in-progress version they initially showed the BBF...

Re: Would Buu Kai be in 4:3 if it didn't air in Japan like originally intended?

It was announced that it would become mandatory for new content to be 16:9, which put them in a tricky situation since although it's old footage, it's a new show. [...] With Boo Kai, that law was already in place, so they had no incentive to do anything but 16:9. Is this just a thing that the broad...

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

I would presume a British equivalent would be a midlands/brummy accent As a Brit, I've imagined how Goku would sound in British English many times. The thing is, we have sooo many "country bumpkin" type accents it's beyond a joke. Now I'm imagining Goku as a Yam Yam and I'll get nothing productive ...

Re: Blue brick vs singels

They're both still chocolate. You just have neglected to remove the wrapping from one of them. But only one of them has a chance of the flavour being ruined by accidentally eating the wrapper with the chocolate. My point is that the "Blue Bricks" are recognised as 24p to the point where there's no ...

Re: Blue brick vs singels

The reason why the files from the Green Bricks come out without any visible interlacing artefacts is because it's properly flagged in the IFO files in a way that most modern ripping software detects the pulldown pattern. [...] Both the Green Bricks, and the Blue Bricks use this interlaced format. A...

Re: Blue brick vs singels

The bricks, just like literally every NTSC DVD ever, are interlaced. Literally the only way to get a progressive image on a DVD is if you have native 30fps material on an NTSC DVD. The "blue bricks" aren't interlaced, but the "green bricks" are. As I understand it, the actual video is encoded in 24...

Re: Will Brexit affect DB (Anime) releases in UK/US?

Just me speculating as a layman: While we'll have technically left the EU on Saturday, the withdrawal agreement should be in place by then* to prevent issues with trading from the EU. Presumably the importation costs only begin either a) once the UK has actually made a proper deal or b) on December...

Such as removing footage of Vegeta's fist actually hitting Trunks.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Manga UK has uploaded a short unboxing video, supposedly of their UK version: https://youtu.be/vgncEoMNfA8. It looks identical to the American one, even down to having the American version of the figure instead of what was in their blog post.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Manga UK Home Release Thread

Broly's been added to Netflix UK with Japanese audio only (5.1 though). There are no subtitles, which I hope they plan on fixing soon. It also opens with the Lionsgate logo, which wasn't there before, was it?

Re: The Funimation Path To Power Credits

The credits squeezing, along with the episode/movie re-naming, feels to me like something that made much more sense when they used multiple angles but then got grandfathered in without much thought when the "remasters" were released without that feature.

Re: The Funimation Path To Power Credits

Since we're on the topic, any similar differences in the other movies' remastered editions, or is this the only one where they changed it later on? Movies 2's original DVD had the '94 dub opening and closing theme song, with the ending animation hilariously sped up to fit. The last line of the dub,...

Other than Broly , Manga's Super releases (or at least Parts 1-3) are the Funimation discs with as little modification as possible, even to the point of keeping Funi's trailers for stuff Manga doesn't have. And that was before Funi purchased Manga. The colours seem correct to me. The subtitles use t...
