Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

However, Toei, or someone who actually cares, NEEDS to step in & force FUNi to actually make a home release worth a damn, or get another company to handle it. This is another problem. Toei isn't that "someone who actually cares". That's the company that did all of Boo Kai cropped and with a green t...

First off, going with widescreen over standard definition was a must.
This person shouldn't be working in this industry.

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

Kai isn't, "MYYYYY CHILDHOOOODDDDD!!!!!" for the type of audience that would drop that kind of money, and the casual US fan also thinks Kai is the sissy kiddie version of DBZ. It's an impulse buy for people that don't know any better. Well I mean... Kai is what people have been watching on Adult Sw...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

I am appalled that these sets haven't been put out of print yet. If people are wondering why the orange bricks continue to sell better than other releases, this is why. Whenever I looked at the anime section in an FYE store, they would always have a bunch of orange and blue bricks available at $30 a...

Re: I need help deciding what to buy (dvd) for those who bought the bricks

as for the scam stuff, well it certainly seems fishy, but only because of the price and the fact that it´s from China. I don´t know, it came up recently and already sold to two people. It says seasons 1-9, brand new, and the image shows the US version. Also free shipping. :problem: 99% sure you wer...

Reservations appear to still be open for the time being even though the deadline has passed. At the time of this post, there are still 1,407 sets available. I guess they're keeping it open a little longer incase anyone still buys any though at this point, it's highly unlikely they'll manage to sell ...

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

Kei was able to get a 16mm episode of dragon ball so it'a not possible to do it a baby step at a time (like how starwars fans got original 35mm reels to scan in) With Star Wars, you're talking about three movies that were widely distributed on film in hundreds if not thousands of theaters throughou...

Rejecting this release, refusing to purchase it and making it known to Funimation that we want better is fine.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Do a super-quick, bare-bones release of their raw film scans, cropped no more than what's necessary to avoid the damaged edges and tape marks, with no extras, as a budget release that they could just sell on their website or something. Preferrably with the original title cards kept intact. They cou...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I don't think a full scale level sets quality restoration is feasible given the low cost of the set ($350 for 291 episodes is pretty damn inexpensive) but if we can convince Funi to use the raw film scans or a slightly cropped version of them just to eliminate the film edges, that would be the best ...

People are going to order the set anyway because it's Dragon Ball Z.
The only improvement is that they're using the intended AR otherwise there's no improvement.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

People are buying the 30th Anniversary Blu-rays when it's just the Season Sets in 4:3 AR. Thus, FUNimation assumes the 30th Anniversary Blu-ray release is a success and that hardcore fans are happy with it. You lot didn't vote with your wallet so it happened. Plus, those who pre-ordered can't compl...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Making old footage feel "modernized and fresh" by cropping it to 16:9 is exactly what everyone criticizes FUNimation for. It's a bit inconsistent to exclude Kai and Toei from that criticism in my opinion. If they wanted 16:9 they should have reanimated it from scratch, not use footage that was spec...
