Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've heard of many instances of Blu-Ray actually making films look worse by washing out all the grain and making characters look very "waxy"(Terminator and the first BR release of Patton were particularly notorious for looking very artificial in that regard) so for that and other reasons(I.E. some ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I don't really see the appeal of 4K frankly, my good old HDTV works just fine for me. You can apply the same logic to any new format...its not something you need..it's just better. The difference can be negligible to mind blowing depending on the particular movie/content you are watching. I guess t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Eh. I think Blu ray should be the bare minimum these days..hell, outside of anime Blu rays, I exclusively only buy 4K discs these days. The only DVDs I actively watch/own are DB related (ex. Dragon Boxes).

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

This set definitely got more hate than it deserved IMO. It's not perfect but it's good enough, looks better than the Dragon Boxes since it has better colors and on a big TV, the Dragon Boxes are pretty ugly.. Stop repeating this silly statement over and over. They do not look better than the dragon...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I watched all episodes up to number 199, and I can say that it's most of the time the best official release to watch DBZ on a 4k TV. It's not perfect (except for some episodes that looks beautiful, and these episodes in general have dust, does that means that they weren't "clenead" like others ?), ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

My question is : why is it happens only on few episodes ? I don't wanna say you are lying (maybe you just done know what to look for), but I also owned it for a couple weeks before I sold it and spot checked various episodes from different arcs. Every episode looks pretty bad. Maybe some worse than...

Re: Bootleg topic! Real vs fake

Idk what it is but the DB and GT singles have inconsistent wording on the inner ring...but I put them all in my pc and the VSO app shows them all to be legit and produced around 2004..so I have no idea.

Re: Level 1.1 back...in stock?

I'm not a collector. I don't really get collecting if you don't get use from it, and it just seems odd to me to value an upgraded picture of 17 episodes. I mean the level sets are the best way picture wise to watch those episodes. It's not hard to just switch to another release when those episodes ...

Re: Dragon Ball/Z/GT home releases moving forward

I think they can safely ignore it. You overestimate how many people even know what broadcast audio is, much less care as to its inclusion on a home release. We can't even get FUNi to treat the picture right..you think the JP audio is of any concern to them? Even if they WANTED to include such audio ...

Re: Best/Your Preferred Dragon Ball Releases (DVD, Blu-Ray.etc)

DB - US Saga sets..Blue brick for first arc unfortunately.
Z- Level sets/FUNi DBoxes
GT - US Singles

Movies/Specials - Toei streaming remasters on portable storage.

Heavy emphasis on the subbed experience obviously.

I'm seeing a lots of Dragon Ball singles (mostly Commander Red-Tenshinhan) Brand new with sellers selling 4 or more copies. Has there been any confirmation of bootleg singles in correct packaging *not the King Piccolo part 4 type sets*? I recently bought the Dragon Ball (and GT) singles and was won...

Annoyingly I have both boxsets but they use THE SAME ARTWORK for some insane reason.
There are 4 of them...right? I have them haha. Maybe you are confusing the single boxes with the green bricks?

Re: SSG or SSJ4

SSJ4 has a much more creative and “cool” look to it, but I have come to like the simplicity and the elegance of SSJG. I suppose I would say that I personally like SSJ4 better, but SSJG is much more of a Toriyama thing. I feel like its a modern Toriyama thing. I don't see 90's Toriyama creating SSG ...

Re: What kind of merchandises do you like buying?

Videogames, only the good one though :). There's nothing else that interest me, years ago I'd have bough the home releases but since streaming has become a thing I have little reasons to get them right now. Doesn't the FUNimation stream use Orange Brick footage for Z? Seems like a great reason to n...

Re: A heartwarming Super review

I have been watching his reviews for a long time, so I do value his opinions pretty highly on films. Just not on Dragon Ball. If you watch his Z review, he is a fairly casual fan that really is only concerned with the Z dub he grew up with. Which is fine, he can like what he likes. I just don't thin...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The faulconer productions music is the only American replacement score that's any good to me. They all deviate from Kikuchi so much, but the faulconer score at least has that unique flavor to it (far from generic like a lot of people will say). Both the ocean dub (forgot the composer's name) and na...

To everyone who has never read the manga in its entirety: please, do yourselves a favor and read it! It’s way too good and important to be skipped.
I'm good. I don't care for the medium. Maybe if Viz gets their crap together and finishes the full colors.
