Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Someone recently uploaded a nice collection of promotional scans and raw shots from the series, that have been showcased throughout the years. I've made a google drive link if you anyone wants to download them for comparisons to any current or future release. https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folde...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I could be entirely wrong, but I'm thinking Shaddy meant that more in the vein of 'hey, if these characters ever have to be voiced in English again for new material, just give them to Bosch.' Though admittedly, can't really say I'd 100% agree with that either, but that's mostly because I'm already ...

Re: It's actually amazing that DBZ was successful on Japanese TV

On Goku's pod, the dialogue is similar to the German version quote above, but I figured that was mainly due to the passage of time and Goku's rowdy behaviour when he first landed. If it was completely destroyed, I feel Dr. Brief's dialogue would have been more dire about the state of the pod, rathe...

Re: It's actually amazing that DBZ was successful on Japanese TV

As another aside, I've always felt that the lack of home media releases is why the anime got away with incredibly blatant plot holes, because between the difficulty of seeing them again and the huge time between episodes (even in the US airings) nobody would really notice! That's an interesting tho...

Re: Subtitle file for Z episode 230?

I'm assuming you're talking about the subtitles for the dragon box version, should probably be a bit more specific next time. Anyway, here's the file.

Ah god dammit, I thought I stumbled upon something huge. Though I'm a bit puzzled because I've never seen anyone take advantage of the ability to remove the voices. You'd think everyone would have used it by now to make a bunch of videos either by making fan dubs, or music replacements from the epis...

Re: Looking to buy all the Japanese Dragon Boxes

I'm the type of person who always try to get the home media version of every show or movie I enjoy. I live in scandinavia and have to basically import nearly everything I buy, meaning I have to pay extra shipping to get them. I feel disgusted whenever I pirate or watch something illegaly, even if th...

Re: Has anyone Color Corrected Dragon Ball Kai?

I've been thinking about watching Dragon Ball Kai, however there are problems with the color (especially in the Majin Buu arc). Has anyone attempted to fix them? Not sure what your issue with the first 98 episodes of kai's colors are, but color correcting TFC is pretty easy, you can fix it by addin...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

My favourite is in the DB recap of Goku delivering the final blow on Piccolo Jr. It looks so good! it also helps that they changed the blood to purple in that scene, meaning it at least had a good reason to be there unlike most other redraws. I like the recolor they did to Vegeta and his armor when...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Because that'd be cheaper! It sounds like the redrawn versions were done to make the "base" product, which was then altered for specific networks like NickToons to make the "censored" version. It's a damn shame because those 6 or 7 shots could have looked fantastic if those were the only ones. Funn...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Now as to why they didn't bother releasing the dvds and blu rays of kai without the redraws since home video laws are different, I ain't got the slightest clue, but this is Toei we're talking about after all so I'm not really surprised. Because that'd be cheaper! It sounds like the redrawn versions...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

We Dont want Q-Tec Near anything if i recall correctly I mean, Q-Tec did a good job with Kai, but the faults lie in that the way they rotoscoped the original animation to recolor it & traced over damaged frames to recreate them. It resulted in some jarring animation & a softer image. I have a feeli...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

However, I agree on DB. It has a lot of great character development & moments that get consistently overlooked by the wider Western fanbase. Sadly it seems that even in Japan original DB is being largely forgotten about since Kai jumped straight to Raditz and Selecta Vision apparently had to demand...
