Re: Black Friday / Cyber Monday Deals 2019

For those of us in the UK, there are two Dragon Ball offers on Amazon: the DBZ movie/special collection on DVD/BD for £43/£50 and DBS Part 5 on BD for £16.

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: Official "Show off your Dragonball Crap" Thread

So I guess technically official Dragon Ball Super Haribo is a thing, though only in 10g bags.

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,...

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

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...

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

Episode 36 : https://streamable.com/h46h7 Same old. Death references, swearing/rudeness and Bulma's throttling. And after that, I decided that doing comprehensive dialogue comparisons was too much of a time sink and that we already have a very good idea of what the differences are. Finding actual c...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

One Piece HAS been released on BR in Japan, hasn't it? After episode 206, they started producing the show in HD, so all they have to do is author BR discs. I don't know if they've released the first 206 episodes on BR, but I can't imagine that'd be hard to do. Yeah, they started animating in HD fro...

countries have nothing to do with it. Of course it does. Both versions are inaccessible to each other's audience without using an international forwarding service. No one who "missed out" on the original set can buy this one, and no one buying the UK set will be taking stock away from American fans...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Who cares if it's limited to UK residents only. When something is a limited run, you can't just make another run in another country and say "oh it was 6000 for US only, we didn't say we would make more for other countries" It was always "6000 for North America only" because Funi only had the North ...

Just because Funimation give them to another company to sell doesn't mean it's ok to print more copies.
They're not "printing more copies" of the original set though, they're releasing a localised version in another market. You have to enter a UK shipping address to even order this version.

Re: Toei's Dragon Ball Kai remaster

If you're sitting so close to your screen that this is your entire field of vision, I'd say you're sitting too close. No video will look good if this is your whole frame of view. Even just looking at those screenshots on my PC monitor, the artifacting is noticeable. That being said, the technology ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Sold exclusively via the FUNimation UK store. Apparently it's the only thing that's sold on the Funi UK Store. Weird that they're not selling it through ShopManga. If the American set's $350, that works out to £280, making the UK set slightly more expensive. I suppose that makes sense when you cons...

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

Pop made a mind boggling mistake tonight: they aired the first half of episodes 54 and 55 twice instead of the full episodes. I wonder if they'll add a repeat into the schedule to make up for that; 56/57 are still listed for Monday. Also, it's now listed that from Tuesday 17th both weekday episodes ...
