Re: Questions for Gerard Jones? Upcoming Viz Manga Adapter Interview

What goes into localizing a name? For example, why is there no accent mark on Son Gokū but accent Mark's on other names

FUNimation have a term AND STICK WITH IT FFS! Autonomous or not I don't give a shit but I do when you flip flop between the terms! Like damn man.
They usually just use autonomous when it's need for the lip flaps.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Gee, I wonder what the IStandWithVic people are going to say about that... At this point they should just give up and admit he's not the person they thought he was. More likely that they'll double down. That's exactly what they're doing. I'm.an acquaintance of a VicStan, and every time I try to exp...

Personally, if the story calls for it, but otherwise, representation doesn't trump story.

Re: On the subject of missing insert songs in Funimation's dub

The subtitled version is based off of those masters, correct? It would seem to me that they weren't that shitty, as they included the insert songs. However, the BGM in the dub is much more high quality audio wise, so who knows.

Re: On the subject of missing insert songs in Funimation's dub

It might simply be due to them not wanting to pay the licensing fees for Broadcast use to Japan's equivalent of ASCAP or HarryFox, which would explain why they're not in the English dub of Dragon Ball the series but are in Mystical Adventure, as I don't think Mystical Adventure was on TV at any poi...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

I thought the dub was actually pretty good. Only two major complaints: 1. Could they have said Son Goku at least once? Some of the lines they wrote to cover it (such as Beerus's "Are you finished?") aren't that good. 2. That English cover of Ultimate Battle sucked. Other than that, it's a solid dub ...

Did you not just read what VegettoEX said? And again, politics is not some entity separate from reality that you can just write off as "not being related". Obviously discussing shit Hillary Clinton did wrong is off-topic but if you're critiquing the idea of "politics" in general for getting in your...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I still want to know where everybody is getting the idea that Toei is definitely remastering the series other than 'They did the movies and the specials', because that could just mean they wanted to remaster the movies and the specials and leave it at that. I would be really surprised if they care ...

Again, people have convinced themselves that "Clinton wasn't much better", when from where I'm standing, yes she was. In a million different ways, she was better than Trump. Most of the problems you describe are the sort of thing that would only get better under successive Democrat terms (and a Dem...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I think it's hilarious watching Americans try to pull a "both sides" on their politics. Like, you guys had the most obvious binary right vs wrong, good vs evil, SMART vs STUPID choice to make in 2016 and you STILL fucked it up. To be fair, Clinton wasn't that much better which is why nearly 50% of ...

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

I've seen some great results from color correcting the Dragon Boxes, so that mixed with the broadcast audio would be good enough for me. If people want to do any sort of digital sharpening, then that's their prerogative. What I would want from this project would be color correction, maybe some upsc...

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Problems 1 and 2 could be solved by simply using the Dragon Box as the masters, but even so, I agree that this could risk being taken down. Okay, then what we have is literally just the Dragon Boxes. It's not a fan remaster at that point, just a colour correction project -- which rarely get better ...

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Problem 1: It would cost more in the millions than the hundred thousands to remaster and scan it all. We're talking 444 episodes of TV here (GT never had film distributed around, so the full 508-long run wouldn't be possible), plus two double-length specials. Problem 2: You would have to track down...

It would be great to include as many dubs and subs as possible so every Dragon Ball fan around the world would finally get his proper release he (or she) has been dreaming for so long I honestly don't trust TOEI or FUNimation to remaster DB, DBZ or DBGT as it should so I'm glad the Dragon Boxes, AB...

I don't know about crowdfunding for this type of thing. To my knowledge the people behind Star Wars Despecialized didn't make any money off that project. It was pure passion. As for Toei stopping it though, I doubt it. It technically doesn't violate copyright.
I think distribution of it might be.
