Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

Ooo! Do you have a link? My Blue Bricks didn't come with any, just a paper-wasting leaflet telling me how Funimation wasn't going to waste paper on full booklets. http://www.dragonball.com/dvd-blu-ray.aspx You would have known this if you read the paper wasting leaflet :D Oops. Well looks like I ca...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

Okay but...why? This is the most perplexing thing I've seen in ages. Making a DVD boxset when there's a Blu-Ray release of comparable (but still bad) quality in the year 2019? I can't make heads or tails of it myself, it seems like a really odd decision given that fact. Again I think it's to avoid ...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

Collecting a release of DBZ for the 30th anniversary makes sense. Collecting a DVD release of DBZ when there's a perfectly viable Blu-Ray release makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER. Is this so that the Black Bricks don't look bad?? I really don't get it either, especially with it being a DVD release that ca...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I've known about Funi's awful customer service for a while. After I literally couldn't comment on the crap anniversary BDs months ago, I knew something was up.

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

My local FYE already has a couple big box sets of the orange bricks, the only difference compared to this one is that one has different art on the box. Another thing to collect dust at FYE, I guess. Yeah but who's seriously going to pay that much money for them in a box set? I mean the few of them ...

Ugh, they just keep repackaging that same old widescreen DNR'd to oblivion crap again and again.

Re: How much dialog was actually changed from the Funimation original uncut Z dub and the orange brick “uncut redub”

There’s a big matter of how bad his acting was in the first 30 or so immediate in-house take over episodes. Even if he would have been saying the same face palm worthy dialog having him redub his dialog up until around the time he turned Super Saiyan would have been a notable improvement. It's espe...

Funimation's customer service must be a guy with a Google Voice number forwarded to his cell phone. 16 days? Leave a message? Come on, Funimation; step it up. All resolved?
WTF seriously, 16 days to respond to a call??? Man that's some crap customer service there at FUNi. :lol:

Re: Episode #0474 (14 July 2019)

Oh boy, to think it's been 20 years already since those two dub only tapes of the Ginyu episodes came out (the bilingual DVD equivalents didn't release until just about a year later in June 2000) i was but five years old at the time it was all happening. It wasn't until a little after even then that...

Or are you doing that Hillary/Trump equivalency thing again? Please don't. America had the most obvious good vs evil choice to make in 2016, and...

Re: How much dialog was actually changed from the Funimation original uncut Z dub and the orange brick “uncut redub”

Damn, calling it "old" for back then. At this point, the re-dub is older than the original "Season 3" dub was when they re-dubbed it. Rub-a-dub-dub. Let's face it, though -- just as Kai was Toei's Blu-ray release of Z, so too it was Funimation's true re-dub. I realize they had no idea Kai was comin...

Re: How much dialog was actually changed from the Funimation original uncut Z dub and the orange brick “uncut redub”

If I remember correctly, as far as the 2007 OB partial re dub goes all of Chris Sabat's original "Drummond impression" dialogue as Vegeta was replaced by his then current voice up to around Trunks' arrival before going back to the aforementioned initial take, most of Linda Young's lines as Freeza as...

Or they used "hardcore" in the same vein as "originally meant to be seen" and "remastered from the ORIGINAL Japanese negatives" or that there are "hardcore fans" that don't pertain to the Japanese version or most people on this forum. This set is for the 30th anniversary of Z and yet everything abo...

assuming Toei doesn't soon come out with their own restored version on Blu-ray down the road Unfortunately I feel that this would have happened by now. Z's 30th anniversary has come and gone.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Either way they could have done the level set quality for this release. They marketed it as a limited run, hardcore fans release. Get rid of the figure and add $10-$20 to the price if they had to. Would have covered costs for them and everyone wins. They are clearly stupid or just straight up dicks...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Why does Funimation keep butchering every home release of DBZ? And furthermore why do they keep removing the grain? So that fans will keep buying each new release that is slightly better than the last. Z is one of the only anime that has as many releases as it does as the vast majority have one, ne...

Re: A question to those who saw the Saban dub long after the fact

Wow that's quite interesting if Kara Edwards was indeed one of the choices they had up for Goku in the poll, considering she was later cast as Goten and also Videl and of course Laura Bailey as well who was chosen as the voice of kid Trunks.
