Re: If we get another home release, it needs to be in 4K "UHD"

company A want to release DNRed version of a show. After some sample given to fans, they massively reject the release and show no interest buying it if the show is not properly remastered, if company want to make money, they'll have to do it properly company B want to release DNRed version of a sho...

Re: How would you compare Dragon Ball’s revival to something like Star Wars?

I would compare it to Star Wars thusly: After a groundbreaking original run that was initially followed up by a somewhat disappointing run that did come to a satisfying conclusion but was ultimately not well-received, the franchise was put on a break for a while. (original & prequel trilogies - orig...

Re: How to correct the colors of the Dragon Box to look like Dragon Ball Kai?

Yeah, those are shit. The amateur internet colour correction equivalent of Funimation's crappy remasters that look flashy and "modern" to the untrained average consumer, but anyone who actually knows what good footage looks like knows it's just crap. (In fairness, though, CNXToonami aka Enigmo has d...

Re: If we get another home release, it needs to be in 4K "UHD"

This has never, at any point, been about the fandom. It's about the average consumer, who isn't educated on any of this, and will just buy whatever's on store shelves, with the flashiest features on it, so they can show off their HDTV or UHDTV or whatever. The fans aren't behind what Funi are doing...

Re: Movie Bob Talks About Dragon Ball

I don’t get this argument that Joker connected with the alt-right and incels. That seems more like something certain journalists and film critics claimed would happen for some inexplicable reason. I did see some far right people who gloated over the film’s success, but that seemed to be more of a r...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

However, you missed the big thing about this: The reason Bojack failed is the same reason that season 4 is...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 4 - DB episodes 16-20

It was always the generic “World Martial Arts tournament” I kind of wish they would have gone with “Strongest under the Heavens” tournament. IIRC Funi only called it the "World Martial Arts Tournament", nothing more. Huh. I was sure they called it the "Number One Under The Sun World Martial Arts To...

Re: If we get another home release, it needs to be in 4K "UHD"

The benefit of 4K 16mm scan is very limited compared to 35mm, but there are a few instances among commercial releases such as the 4k remaster of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre . However, it's not very realistic to scan and remaster an entire TV series consist of hundreds of episodes in 4K at this poi...

Re: If we get another home release, it needs to be in 4K "UHD"

Honestly, this is really only of any benefit to the movies and that reel from the Namek arc, as they were printed on bigger film stock. Funi's film copies of the Z series are 16mm-only, so they would be unable to take advantage of the larger film stock for the series that Toei has been able to for ...

Re: Will Brexit affect DB (Anime) releases in UK/US?

Prices of DVDs and such in the UK might go up, particularly if Brexit affects the exchange rate once we're out (which it likely will).

Here we go! Episode 16 - Training-- The Rock Hunt Roshi once again using an English phrase here, "Let's go!" I just love the main cast of Goku, Kuririn, Roshi, and Lunch. Though I can't help but notice at this point that so far, each of our two main casts has been built of a bunch of guys and one gi...

<every character> was featured in Super, but not really utilized. ftfy Seriously, no one is actually utilised in Super, despite pretty much everyone being featured in it.

Re: What characters do you think are underutilized?

To be honest I think there wasn’t much for his character to go. His redemption arc in the 22nd Budokai and Piccolo Daimao arcs was really well done (better than Vegeta’s and neck and neck with Piccolo) but after that there wasn’t much to do with him. He wanted to be better then Goku but unlike Vege...

Re: Do you like Kikuchi Kai?

I think people are overblowing how bad the placement in Kai is. I mean, Kikuchi in Kai is like you went to an old favourite restaurant, ordered their famous steak, and then they serve you it cooked well done and not properly seasoned. You know this restaurant can do better, you know the steak itsel...

Re: What characters do you think are underutilized?

Underutilised in terms of not appearing enough: Tenshinhan - his story arc in the 22nd Tenkaichi is fantastic, he does great stuff in the Piccolo arc, and then Toriyama got bored of him and threw him aside. Lunch - a fun character who grew in some neat ways, and then Toriyama got bored of her and th...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I disagree in the sense that DB hasn't been released on Blu-Ray in some fashion. If it was from Funi, then it'd be an utterly shitty Blu-ray, worth no one's time or money. By focusing so much on Z (with the addition of Kai), Funi have really de-emphasized the importance of the original anime as far...
