Re: If Disney buys 21st Century Fox they'll be getting the Dragon Ball movie rights

Thinking about this whole thing, this may have been one of the reasons why Toei decided to remake the movies in Super. In case anything like this ever happened and screwed up future distribution of the movies, they still have the TV versions to fall back on. Actually it was Toriyama, not TOEI that ...

Re: From 1-10, How would you rate the Funimation Dub so far?

I would probably give it an 8. Apart from "time for me to make the donuts" the script changes are no where near as bad as some people make them out to be, but they do knock the dub down by a bit on accuracy. I've had very few issues with the voice acting though, I salute Chris Sabat for giving Brian...

Re: I'm done with the dub

You are entitled to how you feel about the Super dub, I personally have some problems with the script changes but overall its pretty good. I am actually in the same boat for the most part. And to be honest, I don't mean to go full weeb or anything, but the very concept of a dub seems outdated and mo...

Re: Would you be interested in a dubbed version of Super DB Heroes?

Most definitely if only for another title to add to my ever growing collection of Dragon Ball DVDs and Blu-Rays.

I mean, the fact that whoever created this dub cared so much about pronunciations and getting Goku right goes to show that they didn't want to create a dub for the sake of creating a dub.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I agree that there is a far greater chance of this release having censorship than being cropped. Really though, there's been so many DBZ home releases that neither is acceptable at this stage and I will not be buying this if it contains either. This is the perfect opportunity for many distributors (...

Re: Samsung ends Blu-ray player production, impact on DB media?

if Wow can't get kai, there may still b hope, Adult Swim Canada will be relaunching as a 24/7 channel on April 1, with newly acquired Adult Swim programming and content aired on the channel I honestly think if any channel has a shot at airing Kai it is Wow.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

By the same token they could also have just as easily slapped their existing masters into the season sets albeit with a little touching up and they still would've sold like hotcakes . The 16:9 cropping and DNR'ing were quite frankly IMO pointless and stupid decisions because it's not like doing tho...

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

This is probably untrue, but I am curious if anyone has heard anything about a pre-BLT test dub by Funimation that used Harmony Gold's names with the exception of Oolong being called "Chester" and Pu'ar named "Prudence"? One of the wikis said this claim was posted on Usenet way back in 1995, althoug...

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

Unlike a lot of people here I really don't have a problem with how Kai was created, at least for episodes 1-98. It is, after all the only cost effective way people can watch the Saiyan-Cell arcs in 4:3, and most likely new animation, much like Super would have been hit or miss to say the least. I al...

Bringing the topic back to Kai and Wow! World, I'm not too worried. Especially after reading Dragon Ball Ireland's exchange with the people at Wow! Unlimited. For all we know, Bell could be putting a last minute gag order on the whole thing. Either that, or they want it to be a pure, unadulterated ...

Is in a collectors style box and not just blu ray cases I personally prefer regular Blu-Ray cases even if the only extra packaging is a fancy box for all the cases because I like a certain amount of consistency on my shelves.

So does this mean there's no way for people outside of the US and Japan to secure a copy at the moment? For now, but I'd say that will change. Manga UK may even acquire this release if there's enough interest, so I'd definitely suggest recommending it by any means necessary. Enough people demanded ...
