Re: Episode #0483 (26 July 2020)

Weird, just never heard that term anywhere online or in person in my experience. It's handy to have a term that refers specifically to those comic periodicals and can't be confused with anything else. I mean besides the aforementioned floppy disk, which I know those were referred to as, thus the con...

Yes. "Goku's Fire Brigade" is a fun PSA and teaches children about fire safety.

Re: Episode #0483 (26 July 2020)

Great podcast and topics, but something has been bugging me. I've been reading comics for most of my life and I don't think I've ever heard them referred to as "floppies." Not sure if this is some kind of East Coast term I could be unfamiliar with? Whenever I hear the word "floppies", my mind goes t...

Re: Most accurate Viz release of the manga?

Single volumes, first print run. Or the single comic issues, but they only go up to where Goku and Daimao's first encounter and Goku flying off after beating Freeza (for the "Z" portion).

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

So much for the 30th anniversary version being a "once in a lifetime opportunity" buy lol. Oh Funi, after all these years you still haven't change.

Re: Episodes you've seen the most

The episodes I've seen the most would have to be the the 3 episodes from the Dragon Ball Z: Departure vhs, which contains (Ocean numbering) episodes 26-29. Basically from where Vegeta returns after getting hit by the Spirit Bomb to where Bulma, Gohan, and Krillin are captured by the invisible ship f...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Here, educate yourself: Thanks maybe do that first next time instead of just getting pissy. Pissy? Because I said "educate yourself"? Pissiness wasn't the intention, it was a legitimate statement. Anyway, maybe do your research before making sweeping statements next time. There, that's pissy. No it...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

This new release IS proper 4:3. Everything past episode 1 so far has as much picture as the Dragon Boxes. It's the DNR and saturation that is the issue. Sorry did we watch the same trailers?

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Where can I get the complete set of dragon boxes for 600-800? From what I've seen on ebay and amazon that's the price for a single box set not the whole series. I mean they are going for around that price when I check around the end of last year. Although now since the announcement, and utter disda...

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

Back when it first aired on Toonami. Watching the original 53 episodes, I felt he was the most developed character. Also the fact that he wasn't in any of the movies (which was just 3 at the time)made him more unique to me. Once "Season 3" began I still enjoyed him, but after killing Jhesse he basi...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

How much can the Dragon Box sets be had for these days? I would be $600 for them Depends on how long and patience you want to be. If you want it all right now then yeah you'll probably looking around $600-$800 for the whole set. If you're now in a hurry then you can wait for good deals to present t...

should i pre-order or not? Honestly, if you're really serious about getting it I would wait until it reaches it's funding goal. Maybe after that they might actually put out a decent trailer, as some are speculating that the footage shown isn't what the actual footage will be since they need the res...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Very disappointing especially with what could've been. What a garbage release even for Funimation. Either re-release the damn Dragon Boxes or give the distribution rights to Discotek, so we can have a proper home version finally.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Honestly, if they are like the ones Toei just put out with the edited scenes then they can keep them. I'd rather them just release the Dragon Boxes again and maybe this time include the broadcast audio this time.

It’d be killer if they put out all 291 episodes in one package, with some really badass box art. I’m just tired of constantly collecting individual volumes of DBZ, especially when said volumes get discontinued halfway through looks over at his unfinished collection of Ultimate Uncut Edition dvds A ...
