Re: Why were 4:3 AR screenshots used on the Orange Bricks?

This line of releases is rife with false advertising, what's it matter if the screenshots on the slip cover don't accurately represent the product either? :lol:

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

They point of Kulilin's name is that it has "kuri/kuli" in it. The Japanese word for "chestnut". They all ruin the pun in the same way by misunderstanding the katakanas. I think maybe you don't realize that Funimation DID change "Bra" to "Bulla"... I don't see how what I said was in any way meant t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If you’re fine with Krillin , then you’d be fine with Bulla , rite? And her brother Tollanks ? And their grandpa Dr Bullif . You know, for consistency. How are these examples anything Ilike Krillin? I agree that Bulla and Bullif would both be ridiculous in place of Bra and Brief, two recognizable E...

Any screen shots? I think if we show FUNi what we'd like to see (if DNRing is an option) maybe it could get somewhere?
This video should give you a pretty good idea: https://youtu.be/xWNnAD7JvX8

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Should we try a do a same clip of what kind of DNR (using the levels since thats what they have) to so show FUNi what we think the set should look like? Cause it we can do it at home lol I really liked how Corpsecreate's project was coming along. Great colors with subtle, non-destructive filters. E...

But I think he specified that this is Toei's doing, and that the same happened with the previous movies.
Do they do this to try and discourage reverse importing?

Yeah, for instance like having Krillin in the subtitles instead of Kuririn or Tien Shinhan over Tenshinhan. :lol:
Krillin wouldn't be that bad, it's just a different romanization. Things like Tien Shinhan, Master Roshi, King Kai, Special Beam Cannon etc. would be totally fucking unacceptable.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

For anyone hoping that the footage in the trailer might not be a reflection of the final product, I seriously wouldn't get your hopes up... This would be the first time in US franchise history that a DBZ promo or trailer didn't at least tangentially resemble what we would end up getting later. The o...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If the trailer is representative of the final product, what a shame. Pretty much 0% interest from me now unless more technical info is laid out.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Thank you for the much more lengthy explanation! I really only meant to answer Scsigs' question in reference to crushed blacks in the Level sets, which I don't think were necessarily intentional and more a consequence of the prints used. I'm aware that it's also a stylistic technique often used int...

What exactly are "crushed blacks"?
Details in dark areas that are lost, usually due to high contrast.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Do you think Funimation might have some fun with the 30th Anniversary page on April 1st? Seems like a perfect opportunity to advertise a BRAND NEW 8K CINEMASCOPE ULTRA WIDESCREEN EDITION OF DBZ !!!

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The Levels look excellent besides the crushed blacks and very minor macroblocking, but the former could be solved with a better source to work from and the latter could be fixed with better encoding. Hopefully that kind of approach is taken and improved upon.

We've been so concerned with the aspect ratio and audio, but is there any chance the Toonami promos might finally be included on an official release as extras? I mention this because the initial License Global coverage of Funimation and Toei's collaboration features Dragon Ball characters dressed as...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If I’m remembering correctly, anything more that 1080P would have to be an upscale, and I don’t want that. The movies, however could be in 4K, but that’s be a separate release. It’s a matter of film size. 16mm versus 32mm. 16mm can still be scanned in at 4K, but the only extra detail it would reall...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

500? I'd say it'll cost 1000. Yeah, $1000 would be a hard sell. They'd have to promise handjobs from Chris Sabat for the majority of US fans to even consider that. Geez, that would be insane for this release to cost that much. That price is about equal if a bit less than the total of what the two J...
