Re: New Complete M400 Unreleased / released link

I haven't studied M2 yet; I'm about to get to work on it today, but earlier I was looking for something else and I browsed through your rips and noticed that the piece you classified as " M410 " (which is different from kenisu's classification for "M410", which you and Zestanor both just lumped in ...

Re: Why is it that other anime geet pristine home/anniversary releases, yet the Dragon Ball franchise keeps getting ruin

Garbage in, garbage out. The animation was treated like a slave and abused during its original run, no love, so why do you expect any better now?

Re: DBZ on CN (not Toonami) during ~2008?

I always understood it that the redub was an “uncut special edition.” The regular version for Toonami was the old dub. UUSE was unairable on Toonami without painting over spurting blood and content and language edits. And at that point it’s no longer uncut so why bother.

Re: Super or GT poll

GT because I’ve seen it. Now, regardless of the narrative, I like the handpainted look of GT. Aesthetics alone give GT the win. I’ve heard snippets of the Super soundtrack and find it less engaging than Tokunaga.

Re: If another US Live Action Movie was made, would you want a remake, or a reboot?

I think OG DB should be off limits. This goes against what a lot of people say, but Americans don't "understand" DB like they do DBZ. In the sense that a large segment Americans of a certain generation have absorbed Funimation's Dragon Ball Z into their psyches or whatever. Whereas with OG DB, Evolu...

Re: Download the unreleased Kikuchi tracks here

You say mellow, I say muffled! In mine you can practically hear the guy’s lips on the reed. That middle section with the Bass only plays once (though it is in your recording), and I was very surprised when I got to it because I had previously though the track was much shorter. Because of that one ti...

Re: Download the unreleased Kikuchi tracks here

My rip of "Sexy Girl Music" is a little rough; not in terms of clarity and completeness, but because the dynamics are all over the place. Having that rip from the DVD menu might be useful. I guess everything is weirdly cut because they had to cut around SFX. Collapse and Boogaloo I took from the blu...

Re: Download the unreleased Kikuchi tracks here

Wow, that’s a find. I wonder how Funimation got that, unless it came from a clean section of their music and effects tapes. Do you know if any of the other old DVDs have stuff like that?

I know, I have the DVD. I didn’t use the audio from it because the music is not in a separate stream like the with the season sets.

Did this use my version as a base or did you start from scratch? What did you use to (kind of) mute out the voices?

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Piccolo for Season 7 never made sense either. Saiyaman would have made more sense. It's like they had something against putting Gohan on a cover. At least the 2013 Blu-rays had the appropriate characters on the covers. It really is a shame Funimation don't seem interested in releasing OG Dragon Bal...

Re: Most overused Dragon Ball truisms?

Goku isn’t Superman and I dunno if this counts but when people make an argument and then appeal to some other piece of unrelated media as though that in any way helps their case. E.g. Vegeta sacrificing himself is actually so-and-so, like in Braveheart. Uh, no one asked about Braveheart lol.

Re: For spanish speaking people, do male characters names ending with "a" seem weird?

Masculine gender words derived from Latin’s first declension (-a) are rare but they still exist in the romance languages. The first character in DBZ is the shotgun wielding agricola, which has the masculine gender despite ending in -a (derived from Latin’s first declension). It’s unusual but Vegeta ...

Re: Why did Toei hire Yamamoto for Kai in the first place?

In other anime soundtracks I often hear things that are earily similar sounding to classical/standard western pieces of music. The Kai piece that apes Bolera is absolutely par for the course for anime bgm. I haven’t seen Super, but Goku Black’s theme is straight Samuel Barber’s Agnus Dei. Yamamoto j...

Re: Problem #472 with the Dragon Boxes - DNR

I’m not understanding why the Dragon Box digital masters would exist as a telecine, 3:2 pulldown interlaced, since the target format was always progressive scan DVD.
