Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Problems 1 and 2 could be solved by simply using the Dragon Box as the masters, but even so, I agree that this could risk being taken down. Okay, then what we have is literally just the Dragon Boxes. It's not a fan remaster at that point, just a colour correction project -- which rarely get better ...

Re: Is it true that there were people making money off the Japanese Broadcast Audio?

I agree that FUNimation's cancelled 2011 "level" Blu-rays were of superior quality to anything available in Japan video-wise, but it was an entirely different situation by that point. Prior to the Dragonboxes, none of the series proper had ever received home release in Japan in any form, making the...

Re: Kameha-con 2018!!

There were cameras officially filming all the panels... Since fan uploads of the panels seem to be giving us almost nothing, and the only ones that are around are incomplete, is there any chance we'll get some official uploads? Having missed the con, I have no way of seeing the panels, and the atten...

Re: Help Guide for DBZ Funimation Singles DVDs (links + screens)

I've always wanted to own the best release of the "Ocean Dub" and while I kinda do (Rock the Dragon) the definitive one is Madman's DVD set. Here's why: The Ocean Dub Madman releases were the best! I have those because they had the title screen, recaps and previews before and after each episode whi...

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Problem 1: It would cost more in the millions than the hundred thousands to remaster and scan it all. We're talking 444 episodes of TV here (GT never had film distributed around, so the full 508-long run wouldn't be possible), plus two double-length specials. Problem 2: You would have to track down ...

Re: Is it true that there were people making money off the Japanese Broadcast Audio?

I see no way that Toei wouldn't care. There is the very real cultural aspect of Japanese honour to consider. The difference in quality between the broadcast audio and the Dragonbox audio is drastic, and would forever render the Dragonbox as a "lesser" release. This is why I figured there was no way...

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

My point exactly, they change them in certain different directions while giving them next to nothing to do. Case in point with Videl as mentioned by KBABZ above, because in DBZ primarily she actually played a fairly decent role in the Saiyaman/Buu arcs and same with the movies in that span of time ...

Yeah, i definitely prefer the Z version of her in the show and movies. In Super she really gets sidelined and doesn't do much of anything really. Yes... It's almost as if Super regularly flanderises characters in nonsensical ways so it can nominally squeeze in tons of characters while not actually ...

By the way, I talked with someone inside AB group, he told me that all materials used into any release Has to be approved by Toei , without that, Funimation can't use any audios without Toei agreement , so it mean chris has to convince funimation, that need to convince Toei [...] Do you really thin...

Funimation don't give any kind of Shit about what fans want? they totally don't care about what is good and what is shit? giving those audios to sabat will only lead him having them, it won't be use in official release i heard here countless time that...

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

Saiyagirl? That’s not very PC. What about Saiyawoman or Saiyaperson. It was Saiyawoman in GT, at least. :wink: I believe it was also Saiyawoman in the Kai Final Chapters EoZ episodes, too. I'm kinda glad they flip-flopped on that. Saiyawoman/Saiyagirl does just sound better than Saiyaman #2. Plus, ...

Re: Airing the Orange Bricks in 4:3. Good or bad decision?

Bad decision.

It's taking the crappy 16:9 footage and stretching it to 4:3.

Two wrongs don't make a right, unfortunately.

nonsense like "now we'll never see it on an official release" or "have fun with this shitty source, mine is better" etc etc. To be fair, both of those were reasonable things to say, in the end. The leak killed a lot of the motivation Derek Padula (main contact for passing broadcast audio to Chris S...

Re: Why didn't Spain get Dragon Ball Kai?

Could it be because Kai is just Z with less filler? Indeed... It's possible Selecta Vision were planning on getting raw recordings of the Castillan dub and re-editing it to fit Kai, but ended up nixing the idea, and that's why rumours spread of a dub happening, but it not ending up actually going t...

Re: Is it true that there were people making money off the Japanese Broadcast Audio?

I'm aware of at least two exchanges of broadcast audio for money.
Naturally, with the leaks in the past couple of years, this has all been put to a stop, but yes, some people were making money off the broadcast audio.
