Re: Funimation buys MangaUK

It's an intriguing turn of events, but I'll be waiting to see how things shape up as it could really go either way now. I'm just glad this happened after Broly, so we don't have to put up with the green tint for the UK release. Yeah, when I heard Manga UK's release didn't have the tint I was cautio...

Of course, i'm obviously sticking with my Dragon Boxes as my definitive releases of the series. I'm pretty sure others who own them also have that sentiment as well.
I think that might be the 20th time you’ve said that. 😂

Can't wait until the comparisons start rolling in. I live for screenshot comparisons of DB home releases.

I was just wondering. What happens if something like the figure ends up not coming with this set? I can sort of see that happening
Doubt that, but I could see something dumb like the "artbook" being about 10 pages.

Why don't they just put out an online release of the totally raw film scan. They barely do any work, and we get a much better copy of DBZ.
I guess because funi thinks the majority of the casuals hate grain. Which might sadly be true.

Re: Advisory for those buying the DB Super Blu-rays online

As if DB fans didn't have enough to worry about, I recently found out that certain online vendors are passing off counterfeit DB Super Parts as the real thing. I'm sure some of you already knew this (and I know there are a few other topics), but it is quite insane how close they look to the actual,...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I bought this set but I'm aware its not a great release. and I want better. Problem is, unfortunately if you have bought it, then you've already given Funi your money, and they have no reason to give you better. If you've decided this is the point where you settle, and you're tired of just not buyi...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

They're not random instances. My friend is literally selling the set for $900aud right now. That is the regular going price, other people can charge more but plenty are for sale for $600. Ok maybe you're right but for this situation you cant use an example with the level sets when you know they are...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Pretty sure I made this point already, but no. I don't begrudge people one bit for being stuck with shit for over 12 years now. I begrudge them accepting it as standard, though. Everyone should be telling FUNi their releases suck & that we want better from them. Mental gymnastics are a bitch, but y...

but the people that know they're bad & have to justify shit video quality with other things, I think are safe to say call them stupid. Are people who don't currently own the series stupid for having basically no other option besides spending a months rent on dragon boxes? Are they just not supposed...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It kind of does. It's the typical thing you get with this kind of purchase; if you just go on eBay and go for the first listing you see, you're gonna pay a lot more than someone more sensible, who takes their time with it would pay. Especially right now, with the 30th anniversary set going around, ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

$600 is the standard price. 2 people in the last month or so have sold them for that price on this website and another guy listed his for $800... No one is paying $1000 for these. You're forgetting that HD doesn't mean quality. Who cares if it's HD when you get better image details and over all ani...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I'm curious because I don't own a 4k TV but when I was at a friends house he had on ''Lonesome Dove'' (Yes, I'm a redneck so Git!) lol but it looked awful to me. it made it look like a soap opera! So how does the Dragonboxes look? surely it's gotta be different for a cartoon vs a movie or tv series...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've bragged... er, said as much in the Purchases thread before, but we managed to find boxes 5, 6, and 7 at a pawn shop for $8 a pop a few years back. Recently found box 2 for around $35. Both times we just got extremely lucky, but... it's always possible! This kinda makes me want them less :lol: ...

I have actually lucked out and gotten most of them with exception of Box 4 for less than $100, hell i managed to find a used copy of Dragon Box 1 for a dirt cheap $25 at a local movie store a few years ago so good deals can be had. Here's the other prices i recall for the other volumes i have gotte...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I WISH the dragon boxes were $600...they are mostly over a $1000..which I don't think is anywhere NEAR worth it for non-HD content for anything..they wouldn't look too hot on a modern 4k TV either ..they are showing their age whether the elitists will admit it or not. It'd be nice if the Dragon Box...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

You said it pretty well... Unless you're a collector just buy the dragon boxes. If this collection doubled in price what would you buy? $700 DNR Blu rays or $600 dragon boxes? I'm a collector so I'm getting both. But I couldn't imagine anyone paying more than the Dragon box price I WISH the dragon ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Anyway, for those who pre-ordered this shitty release, it's the Season Sets - 4:3 AR Edition so you're still getting a crappy product but not as bad as the 16:9 AR Edition. If you feel like this is somehow worth $350 then so be it, some might say you're burning your money but it's your money so you...
