Re: The Hills we die on.and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

1 there is no wrong way to watch this childrens show. You wanna watch subbed you do you, you wanna watch it dubbed you do you, you wanna watch a slide show of the manga you do you. just dont be an ahole to people who do it different to you. 2. the older/aging fanbase of DB has hurt it over all.

Re: "You're a Weeb"

It's amazing how condensed that timeframe is and yet as a kid, it all felt interminable. Honestly i think it may be because it was a lot bigger portion of our lives back then. a yearish when you're 8 is 1/8 of your life. pretty big chunk. now in our late 20s and early 30s 1 year isnt a huge chunk o...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Only other way would be if Funimation somehow lost the license, but that's never going to happen, and anyone who thinks it will is just kidding themselves. Don't Funimation have to renew their license every decade or so ? Couldn't someone out bid them for it like Viz ? I know it won't happen due to...

Re: Genuine surround sound in Japanese DBZ movie 13, the 10th anniversary movie, and the BLT dub of DB 1-13

Yeah 70mm had 6 full bandwidth channels total. So say the starwars mix would have 3 full bandwidth front speakers and 1 full bandwidth surround. And .2 full base channels. 35mm had 2 full bandwidth (as did all dolby surround/stereo) spread across 4 speakers. With the rear the most starved of them al...

Re: Genuine surround sound in Japanese DBZ movie 13, the 10th anniversary movie, and the BLT dub of DB 1-13

FWIW pro logic 2 usually just mirrors the rear mono from Dolby surround/stereo to both rear channels. Since it sends out of phase right channel to rear right and out of phase left channel to rear left surround and in proper Dolby surround spec then right and left are supposed to have the same out of...

Re: Dragon Box and 30th Anniversary in Plex

Put them in 2 different libraries. I've got my rock the dragon collection in one and my dragon box remux in another. they both work fine and both pull up fine. I've done the same for japanese sailormoon and dic sailor moon.

maybe an hd anime library and an sd one would work for you?

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

Partially because toei already oked the names, and they'd have to deal with the red tape again to change the names, if its anything like the one piece with 4 kids situation toei even may have suggested some of the names. and well honestly sayin vs siya-jin, special beam cannon vs light of death/maka...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Yeah, it honestly surprises me that FUNi hasn't bought proper film prints or HD copies from Toei as of now. It's kind of odd how they've got film masters for DBZ but not the other two series because you would think at some point they would want something of higher quality across the board than thos...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

FUNi hasn't done this because they don't currently have film masters of Dragon Ball and GT, only standard def digibeta tapes from the early 2000's. There's no reason Funi couldn't either purchase film masters of DB and GT, or arrange with Toei to get some new HD transfers of some prints that Toei w...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I can't belleve that such a legendary series like DBZ is being thrown by the wayside like this. When other top-tier anime can get a proper respectful HD release, DBZ just gets the shaft, and all fans can do is just watch the massacre in the editing room. The only other franchise I can think of off ...

I'm surprised they haven't released this in standard sets yet. They may not do that at all, given the poor sales. i wouldnt be surprised if they didnt due to that. but it does kinda look like their in person/in store sales may be dong better than online for the nostalgia grabbers. so that may be pa...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

Jeez louise, these updates never end. I just got an offer from a voice actress/anime fan who got her Harmony Gold tape at an anime con between 1997 and 2004, and offered to sent it to me for $10 since she doesn't have a VCR. I took her up and she's in the process of shipping the tape to my address....

I'd just like to make one final update to this thread before calling it over for myself. As promised a month ago, I have uploaded Kei17's VOB of episode 1 taken from takarajima's tape to the Internet Archive. It can be found under the same library as my original upload of episode 1.

Re: Better way to digitally preserve Laserdisc and VHS

seems neat. Dunno if the extra cost and time of doing this would be worth it compared to my s vhs player and laserdisc with 3d comb filter on the s video port captures. but i certainly like what its trying to do.
