Shout-out to the James Bond-esque Kikuchi tracks that play during the General Blue section, as I love them and they automatically started playing in my head as I wrote this.
Story aside, for me the soundtrack is the highlight of Blue section. Those big band brass Bond songs are amazing!

Ah yes, one more reason/excuse for toei to never do a proper HD remaster of the old DB :problem:

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The Dragon Boxes most definitely had both DNR and sharpening, but it was applied tastefully. I dont think the dragonboxes had dnr, rather they were hit with the natural bandwidth limitations of the mpeg2 on dvd format. Also kinda unrelated, but i feel as toei may have fucked the colours themselves ...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Man their scanner must be really bad, the color reproduction is atrocious. Considering they have to convert the negative colours into positive, i think thats just toei being incompetent at colors as usual why do you think these look different? https://i.imgur.com/H4mBwIn.png https://i.imgur.com/GDw...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

If you scroll down toei's twitter you can find a lot of these shots. It gives you a pretty good idea of what the show might have looked if it was shot on 35mm https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Eak-vXmUEAAzBBJ?format=jpg&name=4096x4096 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EX7IYKvUYAAIQYE?format=jpg&name=4096x4096 ...

Keep in mind that the first 3 shots come from 35mm film shots of the cels and not a direct cell scan.
Why is the first one 35mm instead of 16?
Thats how toei shot their promo shots. Its easy to spot cause of the very fine grain of 35mm film they use. 16mm film would have been a lot noisier

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Tenshinhan vs Yamcha looks more like I would expect: using a variety of lines widths and pressures, with rough boundaries between cels. Either it's just the case that many episodes were animated with invariable fat lines, or some of these have been inconsistently "touched up"; perhaps carefully dig...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

I like the DB ones but the Z ones just look like the old singles, right down to the tint and purple shirt. Yeah, it's clearly just a hue shift (towards green. Look at the green hue of Krillin's dougi). That's not how the color correction is done with Dragon Box footage. Yea i did overdo it with the...

Re: Was Dragon Ball mastered at 6500K?

That's because they have to actually work for their sales, Toei and other big companies rely on brand recognition to sell their product. That's not to say every big company doesn't care about their reputation, but Toei unfortunately isn't exactly one of them. Yeah, and I mean I understand the posit...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 11 - DB episodes 46-50

These episodes are some of my favorite in the series, partly cause of the story, but mostly cause of the James bond-esque soundtrack. (Favorite tracks being the song playing when blue and co spots the cave and the others in the sub (ep48) and the commence chase song midway episode 50 where blue send...

Re: Problem #472 with the Dragon Boxes - DNR

This could very well be the result of the scan being transferred on tape considering it was 2004 and there were not large HDDs available.

I have one kinda related question about the DBoxes.
Did toei use the master negatives for them or was it a positive print of some close gen?

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

At the end of the day, the Faulconer soundtrack does a really good job at catering to kids and transforming the show from "characters powering up via dramatic moments" to "characters powering up and it a cool af moment" which is basically what American tv wanted i guess. However its totally not suit...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

Any performance from the Greek ""dub"" makes me want to killmyself :lol:
As far as funi dub goes which was probably my first proper watch of the show, i'd go with Sabat as Picolo, but after Vegeta got introduced.
