Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It's really shitty that people actually fell for this release and all 6000 got sold. Such bullshit and once again, Funimation now has no reason to change. Except it didn't sell that amount, it sold about 3,500 copies as far as I can tell. I don't understand? The website says it's sold out. Why woul...

FUNimation.com and Yahoo View (thanks to Hulu) has the Japanese version of Dragonball Subbed for free legally. It has ads though, so that’s something...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

FUNimation has the NEP clips because they were using them back in the early 2000s when DBZ was airing. I was only 9 or 10 but I specifically remember them being shown. Yeah, but the thing is, when Toei provides FUNimation with their masters for Dragon Ball Z, they got the footage for the Next Episo...

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

Well, I watched the Broli movie through. I found it interesting that they kept the proper spelling for "Vegetto" instead of using "Vegito" (despite the movie having Gogeta in it, they reference Vegetto by saying they can't use that name again and need a new one), but otherwise the subtitles were wh...

I just wonder if the MangaUK release will be without the subtitles issue too.
It will most likely have it too unfortunately.
Bad news. The Manga UK Version also uses Dub Names in the Subtitles.

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

The dub very rarely uses Son Goku (much less Son Gohan and Son Goten) so does it mean it'll be always Goku, Gohan and Goten? This is an enormous downgrade. I hope it doesn't affect the Spanish, French and German releases but if they rely on the FUNimation scripts then they will. I wouldn’t think so...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I’m pretty sure the reason is FUNimation just has a bad print of Episode 1. It’s been mentioned on the podcast many times, and the picture can prove it for itself, but it just seems to be that FUNimation, wether it be the Digi-beta or Film Print, just always seems to get a bad master of Episode 1 fr...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Yeah, specifically missing the exact same animations, and the opening, that weren't provided for Funimation. The textless OP/EDs on the DBox were the same OP/EDs Funi used in their 2001 dub. Hmm, now WHY would Toei have those two specifically lying around...? :roll: My guess is that those were back...

Re: FUNimation DBS Blu-Rays English OPs

FUNi's best work on dubbed OP/EDs was definitely on Kai, for some reason they didn't or were unable to dub the Kai TFC OP/ED songs. Kuu-Zen-Zetsu-Go was way better than Fight It Out, FIO sounds like a corny 80's song that eventually gets worn out, imo. I'm pretty sure the reason FUNi didn't dub the...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I believe the reason DB & GT didn't get cropped was because they couldn't. IIRC they didn't have HD Native scans like Z so they couldn't be cropped. That doesn't make sense to me, it's not like what they screened on Toonami was done in HD, right? It would have had to have been re-scanned just for t...

Re: Why Kai 1.0's Kikuchi Score was so limited.

Based on what I know/remember reading on this very Forum, one reason was licensing issues with OST's from the other movies, the fact that it was super rushed, and the fact that they limited themselves to only songs on the 2006 "Dragon Ball Z BGM Collection" for having only the ones in the highest qu...

I don't mind the changes so far, I only really have one point of critique in that the icons for posts are kinda hard to distinguish as thin circles. It makes it really difficult to tell the difference between a read thread and one with new posts. I'm also not sure what the difference is between a r...

Did the mini-movie with Vegeta's brother showing up ever get put into English? Also, what about the 2nd Bardock special (where he turned Super Saiyan)? Also, what about the lost movie "Plan to Eradicate The Saiyans" ?? This was an OAV or a video game or something. I'm fairly certain it was in the J...

Key point from the FAQ section on the Page: WHY 2,500 UNITS? This is the minimum build order for sets from our printers.
