Re: Did the Orange Brick 2007 (partial) redub feel pointless overall?

If the re-voiced lines were also re-written, it would've felt like a better use of that money (if any was spent in the first place). That said, Kai's dub has basically made the ol' 1999-2003 dub even more of a relic. It's so good, I've barely watched any DB dubs since then since I feel like Kai was ...

Direct gameplay feed. Sounds like we're getting new arrangements of the Kikuchi score in addition to OG HEAD-CHA-LA and new music.

So that's a good sign, at least. :clap:

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Shortened link for the FUNi page: https://bit.ly/2Xyjqza I went ahead with the email sign-up. Seriously, FUNimation. Seriously, Toei. It's now or never. 4:3 ratio. Japanese broadcast audio. Uncensored. It's gotta happen now. I don't really see Blu-Ray still being a thing when the 40th anniversary hi...

Re: When are you guys going to watch Broly?

I convinced four friends from work to go see as a group on Friday evening. Should be fun. (Two casual fans who are current with Super, one who is really only into DBZ Abridged, and one who hasn't watched a lick of Dragon Ball material since the Toonami days) Truthfully, I haven't watched very much o...

Re: What will Funimation do with DB after Super ends?

In response to the original question: I have no doubt they'll be plenty busy localizing the rest of Super and the new movie. What I want: - a 4:3 Blu-Ray release of Z (even a bare-bones no-frills release would be fine) - some kind of release containing the Z broadcast audio Wishful thinking in a dre...

Re: Would you like to see Dragon Ball on This TV?(Broadcast Network)

I think the only service I care to see Dragon Ball media on is Crunchyroll. Right up there next to Super.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Before the dub the U.S Dragon Ball fandom was practically nonexistent. Honestly it feels like some of you are using your hatred of the dub to not give Funi any credit for their role in popularizing DBZ in America. It's true that the English version of DB/DBZ did increase the popularity of the franc...

Re: Did Dragon Ball REALLY need Funimation to thrive?

I'm fairly confident saying that if FUNimation never got the rights to the series in the mid-90's, Viz or Pioneer would've most likely snapped up the rights. They were pretty much the only US anime distributors releasing longer-running anime on VHS (uncut and dubbed) around that mid/late 90's timefr...

Re: Does anyone here watch Kai in Japanese?

Back when it was airing weekly (before the BluRays came out), I would watch it. I think the perfomances are great overall. It lacks some of the OOMPH of original DBZ, when the seiyuu were in their prime; but it's pretty awesome to hear that cast in nice clear stereo. The music wasn't as crazy catchy...

Re: Who saw the Japanese version as a kid?

I was 13 or so when I got into DBZ in 1998, right around the time the internet was starting to blow up. Between the fansub trading scene (both on-and-offline) and sites featuring Japanese clips, I managed to see a sizable chunk of Dragon Ball in its original language. The late 90's through the mid-2...

Re: A very important 10 year anniversary just passed (and your opinion on it)

I still feel the audio options make them a worthwhile purchase if someone wants to own the entire series with the Japanese audio affordably.

But yeah, they look like crap (especially on a larger TV.)

Luckily, the Blu-Rays are at least a lil' better, eh?

Re: A very important 10 year anniversary just passed (and your opinion on it)

Even though I've said many times that the Orange Bricks aren't great, I'm glad I bought them. Before the OBs came out, my collection was a mish-mash of random FUNi DVD singles, dusty ol' VHS fansubs, torrented DBox RAWs, and VHS tapings off Cartoon Network. I was able to catch many unseen episodes i...

Re: Is there anyone that stopped or decide not to watch Super?

The first 27 episodes of Super are a real test for many people. Even though I like the Super-exclusive material that sandwiches the "BoG" and "RoF" TV arcs, I still think it was a mistake to re-animate (in lower quality, no less) stories that are still fresh in most audiences' heads.
