Re: Better way to digitally preserve Laserdisc and VHS

I'll send the project info along to people with a better grasp of the subject and see what they say. LD is one thing. VHS/Beta...going to need some help with that I suspect. One guy I know might be interested in a project like that but I've lost track of him. Ah well... Hmmm...it should be possible ...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

If you guys want digitization of old videotapes in professional quality, I can help you out, but sending rare tapes oveaseas is somewhat risky and I don't really recommend it, though. TanookiKuribo's copy of the Funi-Zero dub was accidentally lost when he sent it to someone else by FedEx. Don't get...

I remember my Uncle had Satellite and it was almost always out because were we live in the mountain areas, if it rained ANY! it was gone. haha I remember getting wildfeeds of many shows using a 10 foot BUD (Big Ugly Dish) back in the old days.

Re: Recording vs Buying In the 90's/2000's

I recorded as many as possible so I could rewatch them as much as I pleased (if I happened to be watching while recording, I'd stop and start it to cut out commercials so I could fit more on each tape). Then once the DVDs started coming out, I started purchasing those since I wanted to watch it in ...

Re: First time home media release?

Good chance that the earliest home media releases came from France or one of the dubs of Spain, due to their beginning several years before the English language BLT dub of 94/95. And it could be from Hong Kong or South Korea for the same reason. It's extremely hard to track down detailed informatio...

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

It wasn't just Toei though. Many studios and channels in Japan and outside japan have tossed or locked away stuff so no one can get at it. As such, we have no idea what exists or doesn't anymore. NHK I assume did not keep a lot of productions from the 1960s through the 1980s. I'm trying to preserve...

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

Apologies in advance for double posting. They didn't. Japanese Dragon Ball now sounds the way it does because the audio masters were thrown out by Toei after each episode aired for the first time. The show's audio quality was much higher when it originally aired. Shamelessly plugging myself to back...

Re: The Disappearance of Dragon Ball Super : What Went Wrong in 2019? Full Story +DB in 2020 and Beyond!

I'm having trouble tracking down solid numbers for ratings but everyone seems to agree that Buu Era Z was pulling in around 13.5% ratings (whatever that means. I guess that's the percentage of households watching?) and that GT was pulling in 14% for most of its run. Compared to Z's height of 25% it...

Actually GT's ratings were pretty good, the problem was GT merchandise was not selling very well and in Japan ratings alone aren't good enough, they want everything associated with a property to do well. Geekdom summed it up pretty well on here(yes I know bagging on him is the trendy thing to do am...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 4 - DB episodes 16-20

Episode 17 is where my Nippon Golden Network tapes begin from 1992. I'd go back and watch these again but there isn't the time. I should watch the boxes of subbed Henshin series from there as well, but (you guessed it), no more time. At least the DVDs are still available from Hawaii if I want them...

I'd also appreciate it if anyone could point me to these movies on a streaming service. I'm not interested enough to begin paying for them, but would still like to sample. Do you have Amazon Prime? Lots of Shaw Bros. and Golden Harvest films there. Do a search for Mona Fong (the producer), Shaw, Ku...

Re: Thoughts on a potential Netflix series.

I'd prefer it be a movie so they have the money to nail the visuals. That's one of the biggest issues I've noticed with these live-action anime things, is that regardless of the plot, they tend to just look bad. But I guess that's more an issue of having a talented costume designer than it is an is...

Just so long as the source material is at least respected to some point.
