Re: What do you prefer? The more battle orientated style of Z or the adventuristic aspect of DB?

Somewhere in the middle like the 22nd Tournament/Piccolo, Saiyan, and Namek/Freeza arcs were which imo was the peak of the whole franchise. Primarily battle heavy with some adventure elements sprinkled in it.

Re: Do you prefer to watch the censored or uncensored version of Dragon Ball?

Uncut, always
The old CN broadcast-dub edits are fun to watch when I feel like going on a nostalgic trip but when I'm rewatching a show fully, uncut subbed only (or dubbed if I'm watching Kai).

Re: Dragon Ball 4K Remaster (16mm)

Never understood the notion of "there's no point in a 4K remaster". 16mm could scan to 4K easily, and with 4K tvs becoming very well more mainstream now than even 5 years ago there's all the more reason for a 4K remaster. Only problem lies within Toei and FUNimation and their lack of motivation to d...

Re: 30th Anniversary Blu-Ray vs. DVD Singles (Episode 68/118 onward)

30th anniversary sets. I know they redubbed some scenes and changed the score placement a few times so it ain't exactly the funimation dub from toonami, but do you really wanna watch a sub HD macroblocked to shit picture that shows its age? I don't think it's worth it

Re: New Blu Ray sets? Let's compare!

Honestly Toei just needs to stop being stubborn and hand over the original film prints to FUNimation, but as far as picture quality goes, they're okay (I guess). Also a little unrelated but why is the English dub in HD on funimation while the subbed version is stuck with the orange brick footage on ...

I thought Z had higher highs (the Saiyan and Namek/Freeza arcs were the peak of the franchise imo) but also lower lows (Buu). DB felt more consistent to me

“Shintani style” fan art is not Shintani. I really don’t get how this is so hard for people to understand.
I think my entire thread made it clear I'm not a fan of his work whether it's via fan made drawings or official work like in DBS Broly

Shintani's style doesn't do it for me

If his popularity is anything to go by, I might get some heat for this thread. But I'm sorry, I just don't get the hype. I'm not calling him a bad artist, but when you have guys like Takahashi and Shida working on the same projects and comparing their work, I just don't see why Shintani is the one e...

Anyone have access to Dragon Box 3 Audio?

I've been playing with the season BD audio in audacity for a little bit and recently found out that the center channel is slightly out of sync from the other channels (by a very few ms). Someone was able to remove the Japanese OST but couldn't remove the vocals since the side tracks in the blu ray a...

Re: Gotenks is by far the most annoying canon character of the entire franchise

Only reason I sorta liked him growing up was because he was always fun to use in the video games, especially Budokai 2 and 3. Other than that yeah definitely an annoying one.

Re: Preserving the Nicktoons Airings of DB Material

Crazy to think that nicktoons Kai is something nostalgic now. I was in high school during its run and I was one of those who wasn't a fan because I grew up mainly in the toonami era and wasn't a fan because of the edits (folks couldn't afford to buy any home release either so I was stuck with what w...

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

Nothing wrong with synth. People like to throw that term around with a negative connotation. As much as I prefer Kikuchi's score, the Faulconer score does have a unique sound and produced some damn good music (Goku's death, Vegeta's red power, Goku's spirit bomb, anyone? No? Okay :| ) The biggest ki...

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

Even though I disagree, it's your opinion at the end of the day. I think the Japanese OST could've used a little more variety (Toei being Toei), but it's hard for me to say a replacement score is objectively better than the score it was originally created for

Re: Can't get into Kai

The Boo arc always seems to get handled the most poorly video quality wise from Toei. The cyan/pink tint and a few bright episodes from the dragon boxes, and now green tint kai. I know this was for the intentional market, but come on. And that's not even going into the filler they barely trimmed. I ...
