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...

Some of you (Kunzait) get way too into these arguments... Just let people enjoy what they want to enjoy.

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 ...

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

It was never supposed to be about a group of superheroes with blonde hair kicking ass and taking names with guitars and electronic synth in the background like Faulconer/Funimation made it (as awesome as that was). It was more of what Kikuchi scored it which is an eastern style martial arts comedy ...

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...

Why did Toei hire Yamamoto for Kai in the first place?

Before you make a post responding to the title, please read this. We know thanks to VegettoEX's Kenji Yamamoto Retrospective that the Dragon Ball Kai incident was not the first time Toei has dealt with Yamamoto's plagiarism. "Battle Point Unlimited" was a mix of three Propaganda songs that was never...

Re: General Yamamoto Rip off thread

Think I might have found another one, if it hasn't been already. The track "Transient Peace" has the same three-note backing as the Credits music for A Link to the Past. Credits - Koji Kondo Transient Peace - Kenji Yamamoto Those links don't work. Here are some proper ones with the Zelda theme star...

As far as i know DBO was not only following manga completely ignoring any fillers but also Toriyama was directly involved in production even providing design for Yardrat race that was never seen outside of anime filler. So DBO was in fact the closest thing we got to direct manga sequel. But since i...

And as far as the Cell Games Reenactment...technically they did make a new recording.

Re: Akita TV broadcasts with different Kikuchi music

What the fuck? Why didn't they go with the "temporary Kikuchi" placement? It's so much better! Toei never fails to let me down even more than they already have. First Boo kai's existence (and green tint), then Super's terrible art and animation for eps. 001-028, then Broly's green tint in the Funima...

Here are my 7 wishes . One for each Dragon Ball. 1. A proper rescoring of DBZ Kai.I don't care if it's putting Kikuchi's score where it was in the Z version of the show (as close as possible) or rescoring it with Sumitomo. I just want something consistent with the tracks made for it instead of the h...
