Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

My most recent purchase was the new movie. But it's also my most recent refund because I refuse to pay for a defective video transfer with incorrect subs.

Green tint, bad subs, English theme song only? Yeah, I'm done. I'm sending my copy back. Give me a call when Toei learns how to spell "4K."

Re: English Movie Titles - TOEI Vs. FUNimation

I can understand why they changed the titles because they needed something that sounds more marketable. What really bothers me is when they not only don't display the proper title when you play the films in Japanese, but they straight up cover or replace the titles. I don't like pointless edits in m...

Re: The Broli movie will use dub names in its subtitles, at Toei's request. Could this become the new "standard"?

As far as I know, there is no “I’m a primary fan of the Japanese version, but I wish they used the English dub names in the subs” demographic. As much as I'm not defending this and absolutely hate this decision...you'd be surprised. I personally know several people who, after 131 episodes of Super ...

Re: The Broli movie will use dub names in its subtitles, at Toei's request. Could this become the new "standard"?

The real confusing part is who are they doing this for? What demographic are they trying to please? As far as I know, there is no “I’m a primary fan of the Japanese version, but I wish they used the English dub names in the subs” demographic. 99% of actual dub fans will not watch it subbed, or if t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

In regards to using the dub names, I wish it didn't bother me so much but it absolutely does. I don't watch the dub so I shouldn't be subjected to it's changes. They're not making much of a case against piracy here but then again that was the case with the theatrical release as well, because at leas...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It's a shame, if the remaster for the set were better i'd consider getting it but at this point as i've said as nauseum i am just going to stick with my Dragon Boxes. I need a count of how many times you've told us you are keeping your Dragon Boxes. :mrgreen: Gee, i certainly have harped on that po...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I'm now confused by this counter... It says units remaining 2918/6000 so one assumes it's 2918 left, however the counter is going up not down... Not the first time I've seen that. Either it's cancellations (hopefully) or it's buggy (most likely). Maybe a bunch of people cancelled when they realized...

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

Okay, as someone who absolutely prefers watching the Japanese version not just because that's how I usually watch anime but also because of the excessive amount of unnecessary changes made in the DB dub I will admit that they did make one change that not only didn't bother me but that I wholehearted...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

After a week of going back and forth on it, I caved in and ordered a set. Worst case scenario and the transfer is crap: I'll keep the figure and artbook and sell the discs on ebay to make some of my money back. I'm still hopeful that we can convince Funimation to switch over to the raw film scans b...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I just wish this wasn't so difficult. We need a Star Wars Despecialized equivalent at this point. Well, Despecialized is just an edit of the existing Blu-Ray masters. What would be closer to what I think you're suggesting is 4K77/4K80/4K83, where fans acquired film prints and restored them. That wa...

From Twitter , this is apparently from FUNi's Discord server, to my understanding "Timm" is a FUNi rep: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D3zcsiSUEAE4ztK.jpg A FUNi rep, yes, but they're not involved with the remaster in any way. They were getting a ton of backlash after that comment and responded with t...

Re: So Moro Is A Retread Of Piccolo Daimao?

I'm really liking Moro so far. I definitely see parallels between him and Piccolo Daimao but his ability to block transformations is ideally going to have to make the characters think outside the box a bit. My only complaint is that I would really like to see someone else from the main cast get inv...

Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

Frankly I'm more interested in seeing new villains rather than bringing back old ones, Broly of course being an exception. But I always thought that Black was essentially a way to bring Tullece into the canon. I don't think we need two evil Goku's in the official timeline.

Re: What is the darkest arc in the original run?

I would definitely go with the Piccolo Daimao arc. Toriyama said he wanted to try his hands at a really threatening villain. Hell, that could have been the end of the entire series if he wanted.

Re: How you would rank cruelest moments of Frieza, Cell, Buu, and Zamasu

None of them are as bad as Piccolo Daimao killing Goku's friends, restoring his youth with Shen Long, and then killing Shen Long! But Kuririn calling Goku's name before exploding is still a pretty messed up scene so I'll go with Freeza at the top.

Haven't you heard? Nobody gives a shit about prequels ! Lol. Sorry Bardock! No, that one's okay because it's part of Z, but all that stuff between Bardock and Raditz? Fuck that, that's unimportant and nobody cares. All I know is that I wanna see Yajirobe cut Cymbal in half and then eat him in HD! lol

Whatever they choose to do I just don't want it to be edited anymore. I wish it had gotten the Dragon Box treatment in the US.
