Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

I think they just copy&pasted the description from Kazés previous DVD release from 2011 . Probably but who knows, I'm hoping Kazé can release a 4:3 version of the HD remasters although I wouldn't count on it. I seriously doubt that Toei would go through the trouble of remastering the 4:3 versions o...

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

Baking isn't necessarily an increase in quality, it's a solution to "Sticky-shed syndrome" , which would mainly manifest in video in the form of dropouts, and it's somewhat risky too, particularly if done wrong, so I don't know if that's such a good idea. I'm fully aware of what tape baking is prim...

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

Still curious why they skipped move 2 though If we're using content as the possible reason for why HG dropped the series early on then it might be possible that movie 2 was also skipped because of the subject matter possibly being too dark or not fitting within the tone of the rest of the series wh...

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

Gave episode 1 a check and the quality could be better (it seems be only slightly better than a NGN recording), I wonder if he "baked" the tape before digitizing because that's been known to help in some cases, if the tape hadn't been played for over 30 years that might be something worth looking in...

So this means all 5 episodes of the HG dub have been found? Holy shit that's awesome! :D Your source is doing a great service :angel:
Indeed, not only that but we may be able to use the VHS footage to restore this dub or most of it completely.

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

Another update. Kei17 has given me permission to share his VOB of episode 1, which is a higher quality file than the anonymous copy I was given a week ago. I will be sharing it somewhere once the other episodes are digitized either today or tomorrow. That's good to hear, I'm really looking forward ...

Re: Bootleg topic! Real vs fake

Hi, can someone tell me the quickest way to know if my dbz orange bricks are bootleg? I bought the whole set from Ebay, cheaper than Amazon, but I think it was from a US seller (bought it some months ago). I have tested a couple episodes from the first season, everything appears to be normal. What ...

Re: Original Dragon Ball anime to be released on Blu Ray in Spain

It'd also help if SV would actually post a screenshot or two of their remaster so we can see just what kind of video quality we're getting with this release (why they haven't yet is beyond me since that would help build even more hype for this until release).

Re: Possible details on Selecta Vision's Dragon Ball (1986-1989) bluray release

They would like to release the first DB BD set at the end of this year, hopefully in December, but they can’t say it for sure. Hopefully they'll be able to release the first set by the end of the year, I've actually been keeping my eye on this for a while and am curious as to what the quality will ...

Re: Dragon Box Audio Vs. Broadcast Audio — How is there even an argument?

There's that, and then there's people like me, who busted our asses trying to get this audio into official hands, only to find that not only do Toei continue to have no interest, but Funi have ended up also having no interest. Feels like kind of a slap in the face after all the shit(ty people) we w...

Re: Dragon Box Audio Vs. Broadcast Audio — How is there even an argument?

But again, I don't think it's that big of a deal to get all upset with in the first place. Personally I have to completely disagree. I don't feel like typing my reasons out again so I'm gonna quote something I wrote a while back in another thread to explain my reason why I disagree. "To me I've alw...

Just as I thought, the broadcast audio will not be in this release. Sorry folks! :) I expected nothing less from Toei's laziness (seriously is including broadcast audio now that it's out there in its entirety really too much to ask for? especially since this release is supposed to COMMEMORATE one o...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I believe FUNi is using the same masters as the ones provided in the level sets, however he will get back with me to confirm. As long as it is remastered properly, shown in 4:3, then I’m OK! But, if for some reason they pull a Toei and forget to include 4:3, it will go into the trash. :) Personally...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I mean, I heard it was space reasons they left it off, or maybe it was because the D Boxes were supposed to be the more pure form to watch the series in. In a way it kinda was space issues, the primary reason I think space issues was even an issue in the first place was because of the simple fact t...

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

Is there any truth to what's been said about the first 5 episodes of the Latin dub "Zero and the Magic Dragon" keeping the original grunts and yells from the first 5 English episodes of the HG dub? There are YouTube videos up from the first 5 Latin episodes that claim this. For example there's a vi...

Well, if anyone lives in Philly, or has some friends from there, they could try putting some feelers out to see if anyone might have an episode or two taped.
