Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

we have Broadcast audio for the original Dragon Ball? I said a month or two ago that I believed we would one day get broadcast audio for OG DB... I never thought it would be so soon. I've checked and apparently GT has broadcast audio out as well. Holy shit, this is like what Newton said: For every ...

Re: What are the things so unlikely to happen, that they could actually happen?

I truly believe that one day we somehow will get broadcast audio for OG DB. And a proper remastering of Z.

Some day...

Re: Level 1.1 back...in stock?

Not only were the Season BDs almost certainly mastered using the same rigorous processes (just with a couple of extra steps on the end that totally ruin the picture), but they would've almost certainly spent more on producing them than the Levels thanks to the shot-by-shot reframing. And yet, they ...

Re: What is your opinion about the artistic style of Dragon Ball Super?

I only wish that Super didn't change art styles in episode 77. It should have stayed the same the entire way through whether it's pre-77 or post-76's style. The change bothers me, although consistency is one thing this series has never had thanks to the morons in charge of it domestic and abroad.

Re: Team Faulconer - Singles vs Orange Bricks

Friendly heads up. The voice filters were removed as part of Funimation's revisioning of the series when they released the OBs. I believe they did what they could to make it more like the original product without scrapping the dub and redoing it. I've seen people on YouTube make comparison videos sa...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

plagiarism was common then. Future Trunks' theme when he first turns Super Saiyan was also plagiarized (the bass part) . The entire song "Battle Point Unlimited" is plagiarized. Kenji took 3 different songs (all by the same group) and combined them into one and called it his own. Someone even made ...

Besides, it's not like Toei gives a shit. The C&Ds I've received in the past say otherwise.

Jesus Christ, people. Kei is under NO obligation to share the audio. NONE. Fan entitlement is a moronic fucking thing. I'm not saying he owes it to us, but he should do it for the good of the community. If it wasn't for the girl who did end up sharing it (who received death threats for the upload),...

Kei17 is quite legendary on this forum. He lives in Japan and has contacts with Toei, it seems. 1. He is rumored to have the broadcast audio for Dragon Ball and won't release it (like he wouldn't with DBZ). 2. He had the broadcast audio for all of DBZ and wouldn't give it up. He only tried giving it...

Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

I'm not sure. I take "sudden and unexpected" to generally mean randomly without warning. Imagine if there was a show where a character had a quest to do something but was stopped by something (wall, forcefield, etc.) Then suddenly, out of nowhere and without warning, got past it with a simple new p...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I was talking to my friend a few days ago and he, despite never having read the manga, says he thinks Faulconer's score is more true to Toriyama's intentions than Kikuchi's score. What is the proper response to this? I told him that most of Funimation didn't even know who Toriyama was when they dub...

Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

Deus ex machina does not mean "asspull" and never has. If an outside power resolves an otherwise hopeless plot situation then it's a deus ex machina. It does not matter if it was foreshadowed much earlier in the story. Foreshadowing does not preclude something from being a deus ex machina. The hero...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

So I have a question for you all. I grew up with Saban then Funimation DBZ meaning Shuki Levy/Faulconer. However, as a purist, I prefer to watch DBZ in its original Japanese format with voices and score. I was talking to my friend a few days ago and he, despite never having read the manga, says he t...

Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

It was a deus ex machina and an asspull because there was no logical way the button could have stayed in Goku's pockets after all the the times he was damaged and thrown around by Black and Zamasu from ep. 55 to 67. It's a cartoon. Fitting with cartoon logic, it's perfectly fine. It's also still a ...

Re: What if they made the Moro arc a movie instead?

I would prefer something new and original for a movie. I still think there will be some DB movie or anime continuation around the time of the Olympics since Goku is an ambassador. They're going to capitalize on the popularity. So far, the Moro arc would be a good anime cour or two depending on how l...

Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

I don't like how Zamasu's defeat comes down to a deus ex machina. Honestly I don't think Moro will be as unique as Immortal Zamasu, he will probably lose after being overpowered. That is more cliché, but at least it's hard to screw it up. Technically it wasn't. For it to be deus ex machina, Zeno wo...

Re: Can't get into Kai

As for the green tint. I think in these Dragon Box episodes with the green tint, that Kai looks better: I never owned the orange bricks, but those screenshots all look better than Boo Kai color-wise. However, that image of Vegeta seems a bit too high in contrast (or just too damn bright, whatever)....
