Re: UK Kai Seasons going out of print

Madman's Australian sets were the same Yamamoto/Kikuchi mix as the UK ones, weren't they? Those would still be an option for region B.

Re: A specific picture problem of Dragon Ball Season 1 DVD set (UK/AU release only).

Does it look like this screencap from the 1994 dub? https://i.slow.pics/wyNKoToM.png Those are tape marks - physical damage where they've spliced two pieces of film together. They digitally erased these for the Dragon Boxes and Levels and (presumably) zoomed in the "Blue Bricks" as a zero-effort alt...

Re: 4:3 Steelbooks - Inconsistent Subtitles?

They've been alternating between English and Romaji since at least the the Level 1.1 Blu-ray. It looks like Super's are only English, but TPTB have been much more strict about subtitles since Super began. I 'spose it makes sense when you consider that the Japanese version had the song lyrics subtitl...

Re: FUNimation downgrading surround sound to stereo

Some of the "remastered" Z movie DVDs have both dub options in 5.1, as does the GT TV special, so I'd say that it's probably not a space issue.

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

It's weird now because not only does Kai exist but also Super, and some people will watch the old DBZ dub and go directly to Super Even for the dub there was a 14 year gap between Z and Super, so I think most viewers would expect inconsistencies like that, particularly as they'd also see a switch f...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

The "remastered" DBZ dub does its job, in terms of fixing major inconsistencies like actors changing mid-run, right? Either way, if anything needs re-dubbing it's DB movies 2/3. Those really should have been given a new dub with their "remasters"; even with movie 4 unchanged there would have been vo...

Re: DBZ Syndication era Affiliate Promos.

Interesting that there are different variations of the '95 dub; I'd assumed it'd aired a handful of times and then quickly disappeared. I wonder if they started with episode-specific ending footage, gave up for a generic montage and then replaced the old ones for consistency.

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

Zavvi has the Collector's Edition at £50 more than the standard one. That can't be right, can it? The only significant difference is an art book. Either way, the landscape box looks like it's be annoying to actually keep on the Blu-ray shelf (my guess: the book and art cards each go behind the first...

They're not exact matches, but here's how a couple those shots look on the actual 'Season 5' DVD: https://slow.pics/c/fIDz4hqh . I don't know which scenes the other ones come from. The really frustrating one is Season One, because the unfiltered clips on the trailer look so nice, although other thre...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

I expect the steelbooks to be limited to the point when the sales figures don't justify the packaging any more, at which point they'll release standard versions with no fanfare.

Re: DBZ had its own Standards And Practices Lady and other syndication facts

And weirdly, Toei actually did animate One Piece in 30fps (well, 29.97) for a couple-hundred episodes (from Marineford to, I think, Zou) and the smoother motion in stuff like pans was very noticeable. The Crunchyroll streams converted them to ~24fps though, making them look jerky instead.

Re: People who have managed to have extremely low contact with the manga.

The funny thing is I've read more of Super than the original (I read the first volume years ago and I own the Viz Full Colors, but I still haven't gotten around to reading the Freeza arc) because the Super's anime and manga supposedly deviate from each other more. I'm in the same boat of waiting for...

What do your mean, "heavily" redubbed?

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...

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 ...
