Re: Myth - "Funimation didn't acquire film masters of DBZ until 2008"

So, I actually have evidence right now that FUNimation did indeed receive 16mm film for all 153 episodes of Dragon Ball. However, they had disposed of it all. The part of the evidence I can show to you right now is insufficient so you'll have to wait a bit. Once I can show the full evidence I'll po...

Re: Bootleg topic! Real vs fake

Saw these online and they look kinda cool https://i.postimg.cc/85h2SD1s/i-img850x752-1600109136u9fmxg2443.jpg These use artwork taken from the Dragon Boxes and singles cases, i wouldn't be surprised if they turn out to be burned DVD rips of the Dragon Box masters for all three series and the movies...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I absolutely love recognizable legendary seiyu (especially those affiliated with Aoni) from Dragon Ball, but I can't help but think that if Dragon Ball is to have any future, it should be rebooted from the beginning, with new (younger) cast, different direction, and overall updated feel of the seri...

Re: DBZ Syndication era Affiliate Promos.

What episodes you have? do you have the first two episodes broadcast? And what station was it recorded? Excellent questions! I don't have every syndicated episode, but I have enough to gather all of the promos, bumpers, and whatnot. And yes, I do have the first two episodes in their original form a...

Re: Manga UK Releasing DBZ Blu-Rays and Steelbooks

I like these so much more than the steelbooks. Glad a 4:3 release is the norm again (as it should be). I guarantee these are an improvement over the season sets (besides the 4:3) That appears to be the case, and even though the remaster itself has leaves much to be desired it's definitely a step fo...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 38 - DBZ episode 13-17 (CURRENT WEEK)

Notes on ep 16/Orphan episode as even though it's not my favorite filler material it has some noteworthy things. -This was Takeshi Kusao's first known role in the anime, albeit a minor one as Pigero before then going on to his big proper one as Future Trunks a couple years later and subsequently kid...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

There's really not much of a point in arguing with any of you about the aspect ratio. It's not nearly as bad as I constantly see people crying about (often exaggerating to the point where they're claiming it's "unwatchable," which it objectively isn't), which is all my original point really was.

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 37 - DBZ episode 8-12 (CURRENT WEEK)

This is one of the stretch of episodes with filler included in Z that i really like, particularly in terms of expanding what was only briefly glimpsed at in the manga with Gohan's wilderness training. The dinosaur and robot episodes and other little scenes here and there are such great pieces that s...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

In general, Young's voice actually fit with Uranai/Fortunteller Baba in DB and old (not young) Genkai in YYH but her Freeza on the other hand was all kinds of miscast. Again though, it all goes back to FUNi's mindset circa 1999 of hiring people to do poor impressions of the Ocean VA's before they ev...

Re: How old is Gohan in each arc/film?

Regarding Gohan’s age in the movies, it should be noted that while fans like to slot Movie 5 during the three year wait for the artificial humans, that was definitely not Toei’s intention when they made the movie. Movie 5 was written during the tail end of the Freeza saga, which is why Gohan has th...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Good lord, i'm glad Freeza was recast to Chris Ayres for Kai onward because he's hands down a better match for the character in pretty much every way Young wasn't. Freeza in Z was simply terrible. It wouldn't be so bad for a minor character we wouldn't have to hear much, but to give Freeza of all c...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 36 - DBZ movie 1 (CURRENT WEEK)

Well, we have the first DBZ based movie and for basically being a partial rehash of the Raditz kidnaps Gohan plot of the first few episodes of the series it's an overall good adventure that still has some feeling of OG DB in there without the heavy sci fi direction Z itself went in pretty quickly.

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

It was a piss poor Pauline Newstone take for the 1999 recorded episodes. For 2005-2007 the new voice sounded more Rita Repulsa hacking up a lung https://youtu.be/CwwTD4ql9ak Wow, and there's also Sabat's awful early take as Vegeta where he was clearly trying to sound like Brian Drummond which was o...

Indeed, it has taken the top spot of my least favorite FUNi performances of a character in the series which was previously occupied by Linda Young's grandma Freeza voice. Ah yes, my favorite take on Frieza. Where he sounds like a guy who has a nasty cold and is about to lose their voice any moment,...
