Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Holy crap, that's almost nauseating. How can a single soul on this earth look at that and say "yeah this set looks fine, people are just nitpicking"???

Re: Broly's Outfit

Definitely the new one. I really like the color scheme on the new design's armor, and I think that adding the pelt around his waist contrasted with the polished looking armor makes for an interesting design. Whereas I've always thought that the old one was a bit overdesigned and kind of ugly.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Listen, everyone is entitled to their opinion and if you're happy with this release, I'm happy for you. But some of the apologism in this thread is getting a bit ridiculous. I think a lot of the comments about how the transfer looks are overexaggerated. I would say that aside from the excessive dnr,...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've been seeing the clips that one dude put on YouTube and...it's not too bad? The edge enhancements when it comes to some of the highlights and overall smeariness is worse earlier on, but the clips I've seen from Cell/Buu I think look pretty nice (maybe because there was less grain for later in t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Question for those who own this. As I recall there were a handful of episodes on the season Blu-Rays that were out of focus, I believe one of these was episode 220. Is that the case here?

Comparison time! Not to be outdone by the speed of the above, this one should win by comparing EIGHT distinct sources, all at full 1080p size, including both widescreen and fullscreen Kai, both flavours of Season release from Funi, UUE, DBox, and of course, the main event of Level and 30th annivers...

And there it is.

Ugh. Can't we have anything nice? Is this franchise just cursed to never have a good release?

Re: The Funimation Path To Power Credits

Strikes me as really odd they would leave it in Japanese, it's not like the credits are animated they're still images, I know that for Fusion Reborn they have proper English credits...oh well. It's worth pointing out that the credit text scrolls over the artwork displayed behind it! Right, but the ...

Re: Would Pilaf have re-appeared if the anime didn't feature them as much?

Considering Toriyama's tendency to move forward and never really look back much if at all, you may have a point. The reappearance of the Pilaf gang almost 2 years after their debut is somewhat out of character for him. Taking this thought experiment a bit further I wonder if he would have remembered...

Re: Close to Toriyama but not Toriyama

Gotta be honest, I generally disagree with this notion that Toriyama's involvement in something DB related will automatically make it better. Am I happy he's involved with the new material? Absolutely. But he seems to be just as capable as Toei of making poor material. I mean, he wrote Resurrection...

Re: You are put in charge of the entire Dragon Ball Franchise what you do ?

Purge GT from existance. In seriousness, I'm generally very happy with the new material (with a few exceptions), so I'd probably just let everyone continue on as they were. I would, however, fast-track 2uper (within reason, don't want it to be rushed), because the fact that one of Toei's most profi...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

I generally quite like Super, but even putting aside subjective enjoyment of the new material, the circumstances surrounding it's western release encouraged a lot of people to give the Japanese version a chance, so that's a net positive no matter where you stand.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

And now I guess we're reverting to doom and gloom.

Toei just suddenly announced in July the name and other details of a Sailor Moon movie that was first announced like almost 5 years ago. They're weird sometimes for essentially no reason.

Calm down.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The fact that they're using that master outside of trying to market this set makes me wonder if this is the last time we see it. 10 bucks says that becomes their new standard master of the show and we see a wide release of it at some point.
