DB usually has very vibrant or vivid colors
IIRC Ajay said in a video (might have been the one criticizing Funi's response to the 30th's DNR complaints) that it doesn't. It's Funimation who makes the image vibrant with the BS they pull before making another terrible release of the show.

Re: Goku Went Through A LOT of Character Development in the Cell Arc.

A LOT of characters went through some good character development. Vegeta started out as wanting to kill Goku and achieved SSJ. He was itching for a good fight and let Cell absorb #18. He always fought for himself. What happens? Trunks is killed and Vegeta loses it. He lashes out and attacks Cell try...

Who knows if it's true or not.
I'm just glad you're coming to your senses on this. I thought you were lost when you said they have level remasters for all 291 episodes of Z as if it were fact.

Re: It's such a shame how Uub was handled, he could have been the first strong black DB hero

Jord, why are you always making posts about identity politics in Dragon Ball? All it does is divide people. Even VegettoEX once said on Twitter he was happy about how DB has yet to be politicized like most everything else in the world. Just leave it alone and let us all (try to) come together and en...

Re: Was the Level remastering REALLY too expensive, though? Almost certainly not.

I have a Theory about this: Maybe Funimation cranks out these poor releases on Purpose so that they can allways rerelease the Z Portion and cash in again on Disapointed Fans from their previus releases. ... And so the Level Sets where sabotaged and cancled, and then replaced with another Main Strea...

Yes, that. I can't overstate the importance of the fact they have the Level masters for all 291 episodes in the vaults ready for release, but yes, that is true. There is no definitive proof of that. It's just--at this point--a conspiracy theory you have. I saw your thread and there simply isn't a p...

Re: Was the Level remastering REALLY too expensive, though? Almost certainly not.

This is very interesting stuff, but it isn't 100% definitive proof. And as much as I wish it wasn't the case, a few people (less than 100 or even 50) aren't going to change Funi's minds on Twitter with a hashtag based on a theory. Funimation didn't give a shit about the green tint on Broly. They did...

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

Everyone has answered already, but I'd like to throw in my two cents. I think that there are 3 things this movie has going for it. The first is that Broly is in it, and for reasons I never understood he's an American favorite. Second is the animation which is the best the franchise has ever had to t...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I have a simpler solution: how about we keep identity politics out of some dumb kung-Fu cartoon? This is not an appropriate response. It's an appropriate response, you just disagree with it. An inappropriate response would be along the lines of "keep ideologies that promote mental illness out of my...

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

So I looked at one of the links above from framecompare, and I must say this of the #3 Kai 1080p Upscale DNR version. It looks nice, but somewhat off. A tad into uncanny valley. The trees look great and the image generally looks great, but if you view the image at full resolution (right click > view...

they only got cold feet when Kai started becoming a larger success internationally.
So would you say that Toei threw Yamamoto under the bus to save themselves? Or do you think that there truly were possible lawsuits coming at them if the infringing music wasn't removed?

Re: Was there any backlash to the pedophilia (Mai & Trunks) plot point in DBS?

I just want to say that we should all remember that, assuming I'm remembering correctly, Trunks and Mai never actually do anything. They flirt a bit and that's it. No kissing or any other "touching." They hang out. Big deal. I know the age part is still odd but.. I chalk that up to Japan having its ...

Re: I'm done with the dub UPDATE

I dislike the dub cast because of how they are changing Super to be funnier and inserting throwbacks to the old Toonami days. They proved that they could do an honest, near literal translation of the original Japanese dialogue when they dubbed Kai. But with Super? They're doing fuck all and just hav...

Re: Was Dragonball Super a victim of the declining anime industry?

They probably thought it would last 100 episodes and fade away and didn't put any money into it because of this, but then it wound up becoming a sensation and they realized way too late that they should've put in more effort . South Americans still loved it regardless, as evident by the outdoor scr...

Re: 10 Years of Dragon Ball (Z) Kai (2009-2019)

I can't believe Kai is 10 years old already. I really wish they had properly re-inserted Kikuchi into it and not fucked up Boo Kai. It would be the perfect and definitive way to watch the series if so. Now it's a struggle between Kai for the pacing/speed, and Z for the less annoying score placement ...

What do you think of the tone difference between Z and Super?

So Dragon Ball started out as a Journey to the West homage with Goku as Sun Wukong and Bulma as whomever (I'm not familiar with the story). The series is a martial arts gag-manga that slowly became less gag and more martial arts. We here at Kanzenshuu as site goers are all familiar with the original...
