Re: The Good old days of Dragonball websites.

I remember going on a similar site as a kid sometime back in the early 00's that had horrible quality clips and some random full fansub episodes of all three series, though the name of the site escapes seeing as that was many moons ago i'm pretty sure the subtitle translations on the videos were fr...

Re: The Good old days of Dragonball websites.

dragonballarena.net was one of my favorites to visit next to DizenshuuEX https://web.archive.org/web/20030201091715/http://emulazione.multiplayer.it/dragonballarena/english/index.php Ooooh! I might have visited that back in the early 2000s. I visited so many thousands of Dragon Ball sites back then...

Re: The Good old days of Dragonball websites.

I remember myself and my first cousin browsing around here when it was still Daizenshuu EX back in the day, and of course also FUNimation's old DB/DBZ post 2000 site.

Re: Found a few rather cheap Ebay Deals of Dragon Box 5

Wow, i've managed to get nearly the entire Dragon Box Z collection individually for way less than the crazy listings each are usually listed for on eBay. Most of them either through eBay or Amazon sales have been in the mid $50 range on the low end to about $80 max, with exception of Box 1 which i g...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Funimation outright said they put X amount of work into the Season BDs, the same amount as they put into the Levels, they specifically talked about how sometimes it can take a full week for one engineer to do. This, along with the fact the tape marks are gone on the 30th sets leads to one reasonabl...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

There is no definitive proof of that. It's just--at this point--a conspiracy theory you have. I saw your thread and there simply isn't a point in having the level set remastering work completed just to keep it to themselves. And nothing you showed offered definitive proof, just reasons you believe ...

Re: Was the Level remastering REALLY too expensive, though? Almost certainly not.

I do not recall FUNi explicitly mentioning cost as a barrier to the Level sets, and when asked point blank in the Kanzenshuu user questions segment (where would I find that? I've found it again before but don't know what category is falls under) the respondent again said it was a number of things. ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Can someone explain why they used DNR to remove all the grain and then add a layer of fake grain on top? Because I don't understand at all. My guess is that their restored masters are already smeared out from the beginning and they had to redo all the restorations from the beginning for a better re...

Re: Observation about insert songs on FUNi release of DBZ movies 1 and 2

The raspy voice was less “wtf” for Goku than Gohan and she did actually seem to tone down the rasp and make the voice more nasally (which she ended up using for Gohan for the redub) but it wasn’t exactly a good and she did a lot of really horrendous line reads as Goku. Yes, it's true that Stephanie...

Observation about insert songs on FUNi release of DBZ movies 1 and 2

This is something i noticed on FUNi's re dub releases of Z movies 1 and 2 on the dub with Japanese score, because while pretty much most of the music is intact as it should be there are two big exceptions which are the insert songs "Tenkaichi Gohan/The World's Greatest Gohan" and "Piccolo Dai-suki/I...

Re: Was the Level remastering REALLY too expensive, though? Almost certainly not.

So basically Funimation could release the entire series with a Level Set like quality with no additional cost since the the remastering work is already done, but they have decided not to. Sounds like a very Funimation decision to me. Essentially all these episode's are just sitting on someone's har...

Over the last week I checked episides from the saiyan, frieza, trunks and buu and they're all obviously orange brick masters outside buu wich was dragon box.

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Honestly, unless they start before Z, I will be very doubtful that it's in good hands. Anyone who actually understands the show knows that the "Z" storylines are only half the story. It'd be like if Lord Of The Rings skipped Fellowship Of The Ring. Peter Jackson respected and understood the story, ...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

If they don't start with Dragon Ball then a good starting place would be the start of Z. At the beginning have the characters reminiscing about the 23rd Budokai with flashbacks and then go from there. Honestly, unless they start before Z, I will be very doubtful that it's in good hands.

Re: Would Level Sets be more sucessfull if Funimation wait more?

I think the other thing that killed the level sets was the numbering system. This was around the end of FUNi doing the part season sets. And Seeing that set had a Level 1.1 and 1.2 there is no doubt they would have released full level sets later down the road. I think some people were waiting for t...
