Re: Best way to watch the English Dub for the first time?

The english dub of DB/DBZ and GT is objectively bad. I wouldn't bother Super and Kai are just mediocre. Why even waste your time? Just watch the original. You're missing the point of why the OP is wanting to watch them in the first place. I understand his point but it seems like such huge investmen...

Re: Dragon Ball AI Project

These colors seem way too blue. Doesn't seem natural at all. The lack of detail because of DNR is awful.

Re: Dragon Ball Z Level Sets or Dragon Boxes?

Seems like Level Sets win in terms of image quality and color accuracy. However i can't stand the lack of Japaneses title cards and Next Episode previews. So i think i would still prefer The Dragon Boxes even if the Levels weren't cancelled. What needs to happen is for Toie to remaster this series p...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Lately i have been watching the Dragon Boxes with RGB on a CRT tv and the result looked fantastic. The grain wasn't as apparent when looking at a 480p screen, since it wasn't upscaled to 1080 or 4K. The detail tended to be a bit more blended in with the background and it gave the show a nice soft or...

Was Dragon Ball mastered at 6500K?

I was looking over at Dragon Box footage hooked up through RGB on my CRT and it looked nice. Of course most of us all know that the colors of the original film negatives have faded over the years and the colors aren't what they were back when the episodes were produced. So it got me thinking if some...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The more time passes the more i just come to realize that Super wasn't good in the slightest. Even the things that i midly enjoyed back then when it was airing, i kind of only liked them because they were part of new DB material. So there was a bit of a "honeymoon" period going on there but now ther...

Re: What would be your ideal Dragon Ball home release?

Basically have all the content that the Dragon Boxes had. Next Episode previews and original title cards. Preferably rearrange the order in which the credits and Next Episode previews play, so that it is closer to the original broadcast. Have the Original Broadcast Audio. This is a must. Having the ...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

That's because your arguments are based on a fundamental misconception about the nature of this story, making debating your statements point by point a waste of time. It's more productive to cut to the fundamental flaw that informs most your statements. Plus you were cherry picking a certain part o...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

There is really nothing that different in tone between the Saiyan arc and the 23rd Budokai Tenkaichi arc. There is nothing that different in terms of tone between the Piccolo Daimao arc and the Majin Boo arc. They are all relatively on the same level on that front, which is why DBZ and DB had the sa...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I have to agree with Gaffer Tape. With DB in particular fans of the original version have pretty much no good way to watch the show even in 4:3 legally without buying used limited quantity DVDs from 2003/2009, if they didn't happen to already own those, and even then you would be getting suboptimal ...

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

As much as I hate FUNimation, HG still having the license would probably mean no uncut Japanese version on home release in North America, ever, and even further changed dub names would be prevalent today. "Who's Son Goku? "The Japanese name for Zero!" "You call him Goku? You're such a weeb. Zero is...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Apologies in advance for double posting. They didn't. Japanese Dragon Ball now sounds the way it does because the audio masters were thrown out by Toei after each episode aired for the first time. The show's audio quality was much higher when it originally aired. Shamelessly plugging myself to back...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

The only thing i accept is that thankfully this soundtrack has disappeared from all future DB material and if new fans are going to get into the series it will be likely with the original superior in every single way OST. Faulconer was never good. I actually once went through the entire list out of ...

Re: Has your opinion on Faulconer softened over time?

Disliking is one thing, acting like the only possible way people can actually enjoy it is "nostalgia" is quite another. For me it's absolutely not a case of "Stockholm syndrome" in the least because I had almost zero memory of the soundtrack from back when I watched the show on CN. The first time I...

Agreed. Some people really need to find a better way to spend their time if you still get bent out of shape this much 17 years after the Z dub ended. Get over yourself honestly.

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

One Piece is pretty good and it is generally the best out of the Dragon Ball clones that have come out since, but i just don't like how unnecessarily bloated it can be. There are just way too many characters and it becomes enough of a problem in recent arcs where main characters get showed into the ...
