but all the other footage we saw had the same amount, or more, picture than the Dragon Box. Is that mostly the case throughout?

Yes
Well, at least that's a positive I guess. A proper 4:3 image would have seemed impossible even just a few years ago. Thanks.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Anyone that has these, how is the zoom? I know in the episode 1 footage from trailers it looked incredibly zoomed in, but all the other footage we saw had the same amount, or more, picture than the Dragon Box. Is that mostly the case throughout? I’ve been trying to wade through old pages but mostly ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I’m about to pull the trigger and just snag the Dboxes. With my luck they announce a reprint right after(doubtful). Nah, I had the same fear when I ordered my Dragon Boxes like 2-3 years ago or however long it’s been. The only thing that happened since then was the Dragon Boxes becoming even more e...

Thanks! Lol! Should’ve just scrolled down :shock: Awesome M1710! Looks like it was only used ONCE in the entire series. It’s an awesome piece but it’s odd it was only used once and for a scene that isn’t that important. It fits the mood and the scene I think. This Boo is the last loose end to tie u...

Re: How much discussion of "canon" was there pre-BOG?

I remember canon talk as early as 2007-2008. GT got a lot of flack, and I remember the forums I'd frequent, YouTube comment sections, and my friends would all say "Well, GT doesn't matter. It isn't canon." I also remember people discussing certain moments from DB/DBZ on forums, and others constantly...

I was really pissed when they didn't play this track this trackin Kikuchi Kai. Like come on, this is my jam. Why the hell wasn't it played? That's my favorite Kikuchi track, and I agree, it's a travesty that it wasn't in Kai. I might be misremembering, but isn't that from DBZ Movie 1? That would ex...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

They want as close to the broadcast version as possible for archival purposes. The term “purist” could be used, though that has a negative connotation these days I think. I empathize with them, though it doesn’t bother me personally, other things that seem just as inconsequential do.

Re: What do you want the next DragonBall series to be like?

The intensity of the fights has to pick up. It doesn't have to be bloody, but I want to see people exhausted and bodies wrecked by the end of a battle. Could the effectiveness of the Goku/Gohan/Kuririn/Yajirobe vs Vegeta fight in this regard ever truly be recaptured I wonder? It's so good, I'd love...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Not to get way off topic here but I agree with the sentiment that the internet has become a breeding ground of hatred and where the line between trolling and actually hatred has gotten so blurred that there's basically no difference. I don't like Sean Schemmel as Goku, but I don't respond to every ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don't think negative criticism has an "expiration date". There are those who still say good things about that series today, so I don't see why people who didn't like can't express their feelings. If one has to stop, then the other must stop too, right? My problem with negative criticism these day...

Re: Looking for Dragon Box Blu-Ray Copy - HELP

I think you're better of doing it yourself. If the Funi and Jap Dragonboxes have the same timing it shouldn't be that big of a problem. They actually don’t have the same timing. OP, the best way to do so is to use the fan made Dragon Radar program, which takes subs and dubs from only certain North ...

Re: Should Z get yet another redub in English?

Yes, I absolutely think it needs a total redub. The FUNimation dub has too many deep-seated problems that will never go away. Kai 1.0 was good, but what I want is a company that has absolutely zero concerns about the existing FUNi/Ocean/Whoever crowd being upset and simply makes script and casting c...

Re: Do you enjoy Complaining about/Discussing/Watching edited versions of DB?

Not on the internet, no. Too many people irrationally claiming that the edited versions are the best versions simply because "It's the one I grew up with" and vehemently defending them. With friends though, sure, it can be fun to look back and see some of the silly decisions they made and reflect on...
