Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Those pictures have nothing to do with my point whatsoever. You're not explaining how the assumed zoom with the Black Brick will ruin (keyword: RUIN) the framing of that Goku and Vegeta scene like a 16:9 crop would. The fact that the zoom on this release is so severe that the math actually shows th...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

you dislike it BUT it's true, a true fan want the best and do everything to get the best, if you support a company that lie, fool (by illegal way) and show a total disrespect towards the licence and people that love this licence, then you can't be called "fan" you finance this disaster. so not only...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

We have the non inferior release called the Dragon Boxes and I own those and realize they are the best at this point. I also own all the Japanese ones so why you think I only buy shit is beyond me. I am a huge collector and this is a collectors item. That's the thing though. You're falling for thei...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I think this remaster is awful too. But I know people, my mother included, who went through severe relationship abuse, both physical and emotional. And you comparing that to a children's cartoon show is sickening. Fair enough. I've cooled down now and I realize in the heat of the moment I took it t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It's not much of a revolution if they can't convince Lucasfilm or Disney to release the original. I get it, I want a proper unedited release of both SW and DB (I have the latter, not the former), and I can understand petitions and voting with your wallet, but the vitriol for something like this is ...

If I sound extreme it's because I'm fucking pissed because this keeps fucking happening. I'm not apologizing for my tone just because you took offense to it. Provide a better argument.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The problem isn't that they weren't willing to put in the money for a great release. The level sets didn't sell enough to justify the expense. DB's popular, but it's not like Bond movies where a new edition comes out after seemingly every film and people will buy it. DB doesn't have a big enough ma...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It's not false equivalency, it's an analogy. One is a logical fallacy, one is metaphorical. Next. Regardless of what you want to call it, comparing it to real life trauma and considering something so banal to be evil shows a complete lack of perspective. I'm not here to argue about differing opinio...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If you missed out on the Dragon Boxes that is your fault. Let's say you're currently 15 years old and you recently started getting into Dragon Ball after seeing some episodes of Super or playing FighterZ with a friend. Ruling Kai out because you want to see the original uncut version of the show, y...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The cognitive dissonance on this thread is mind-boggling. I'm surprised this many kanzenshuu users are out here defending this crap. Occam's Razor, people. The simplest explanation is usually the most likely one. Definitely not defending the release, it fu**ing sucks, but I'm buying it anyways beca...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Buddy, this release is targeted precisely at the hardcore fans. We are their prime demographic for this expensive release that need I remind you is LIMITED TO 6000. If they wanted to appeal to casuals, they would have reprinted the cropped 2014 Blu-rays. They clearly want to appeal to the type of fa...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

You guys are forgetting something very important, PLEASE take context into account when making your statements. In the eyes of the 99.999999% of fans who have purchased the Orange Bricks, Blu-Rays, they have been absolutely perfect releases. Think about it. It fits perfectly into everyone's televis...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Honestly, they've been pulling this weird sh** on us for the last 20 years, and we're still here. We're not going anywhere even if FUNI's enire history is filled with bad releases. There's ALWAYS a controversy. Singles - Too many of them(Small Episode Count), expensive, hard to find, missing Episod...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Funimation has some nerve to assume that the hardcore community will simply eat this up. Literally everything shown can either be bought/seen elsewhere in better quality or is hideously gaudy in design. Here's what your hard earned $350 gets you: -video that is zoomed in more than any other 4:3 rele...

Re: Another question about the NEPs (Next Episode Previews)

Isn't it true that on the current Fuji TV of DB/DBZ/DBGT, the previews for the next episodes are in the order they were originally shown in (previews first, then credits) as opposed to the Dragon Boxes? The masters that are currently airing are leftover old analog tape masters sent out to affiliate...
