Re: Why wasn't DB Kai a completely new animated series?

I don't know about you, but I enjoy a good remastering process, and the use of original cels blown up to modern resolutions, cut for the intended viewing experience, because the old remasters did it without reason, is a sound strategy for art that was already so good! In Dragon Ball Kai, there's no...

Yes but it would be piracy to just hand them out willy nilly.

Re: What was the purpose of turning Goku back into a child in DBGT?

I know this is a thread on gt but gt interpretations of characters really has no relevance going forward, And in regards to gt the characters would have been different if the writing had just been different and of better quality. GT characters still make appearances in the video games so how are th...

Re: Does anyone ever actually watch the Z dub with the Kikuchi score?

If i was ever to watch the DBZ dub again, it would basically have to be with the Kikuchi score. The US score is unbearable and pretty much makes the entire thing completely unwatchable. The dub is still abysmal with the Kikuchi score but watching it with the US score is much worse. :sick: No, the J...

Re: Funi's DB/DBGT video releases vs. DBZ's

I don't see the big deal about the title cards people always make, but... Yeah, sure. I agree. Though, note that it's not just that the Yellow Bricks used the Australian discs, but they used the masters from before the repressings in Australia that fixed the authoring errors in the Baba saga.

Re: Funi's DB/DBGT video releases vs. DBZ's

from what i understand they are in the original 4:3 Unlike orange bricks zoomed in 16:9 They are in their original 4x3 AR but yeah, the DB bricks were zoomed in. The DB and GT season sets are serviceable but not great. I still find the slight zooming not nearly as bad as cutting off 20% of the pict...

Re: Does anyone ever actually watch the Z dub with the Kikuchi score?

I feel like if you want to watch the Kikuchi score but with an English dub that would be a good enough reason since the Kikuchi score in Kai is kind of a mess and very limited. Of course Japanese with English subs would be the best way to get the Kikuchi experience but people have their reaons for ...

Re: Walmart Exclusive Top Seven Fights DVDs

How would they go to waste when they are commercially making money for Funimation? If no one appreciated the art on the covers or preserve it which at least that's something most, if not all fans can agree on. The video footage? Pass. It's the shitty OBs. I'd have bought these if they somehow had D...

Re: TeamFourStar and Fair Use

Who thinks DBZA is canon? Point me to e'm. From my own experience, I recall I saw some people in one of the DB communities on Google+ posting that TFS "canon" was better than the original. This was two years ago and I dunno if they are still there. And then you have this: https://gamefaqs.gamespot....

Re: I've created a guide to the continuities of Dragon Ball

The big difference between GT&the Movies/Filler is that GT is actually created to push DB as a whole Story further The Movies&Filler are literally just little Sidestorys between the Main Arcs this is why GT is way more relevant to me than the Movies&Filler arcs Haha, yeah right. That's funny. Goku ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The remasterization and picture quality, it's equally as bad if not even worse. Season 9 on DVD looks fairly acceptable and would've been more or less decent had it been 4:3:AR. Okay II get it. I guess I just feel the term is pretty confusing seeing as how from the outside of the box, the Orange Br...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I tend to call them "Season Blu-rays" and "Season DVDs" but it is more precise to identify it as "Orange Bricks on Blu-ray" or/and "Orange Bricks on DVD" (due to the picture quality). Curse FUNimation for making those abhorrent products. Then again, average customers absolutely love them whether on...

Pardon my ignorance, but what is shota Goku? I don't watch the Japanese version of the show so i'm not familiar with the Japanese terms.

Digital is definitely the future, there's just no doubt about that. I would argue digital is the present and future and the past.....

But why Bra? Uub and Pan I get even if their paths don't cross much, but Bra isn't a fighter. Did Bra really serve any sort of purpose outside of the situational humor of Vegeta being wrapped around his pre-teen brat’s finger?
