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...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I'm considering supporting this, but I'll need some more information like the technical aspects (AR, audio specifics, etc...) and price before I can safely justify committing to this (I HOPE there won't just be a limited collectors edition kind of release like the DBOX's were, there also needs to be...

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. I imagine that avenue has already been explored, but who knows. At this point any possible leads that pop up should be fully explored, who kn...

I might know someone who has all the episodes already transferred on VHS in Hi-Fi Stereo recorded SP.

Re: Why doesn't Toei seek out Broadcast masters to improve the DB anime audio

I wasn't actually talking about foreign distributors with original audio. I was referring to the broadcast companies/stations which reside in Dragon Ball's own homeland of Japan that might still have television broadcast masters. It's highly doubtful that the broadcast companies still have the orig...

Re: Why doesn't Toei seek out Broadcast masters to improve the DB anime audio

Easy: that costs money. Toei doesn't want to do that. If I recall correctly, people owning recordings of the original broadcast offered them to Toei for free, which led to nothing True, but of course Toei would then have to make a re-issuing of the related anime and that costs a boatload of money! ...

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

Given that Netflix now allows to download their shows and movies to be watched offline, are the NF versions of TOEI HD not somewhat superior to the AMZN ones? It's DRM'd but I guess in time that'll be unlocked (scene "warez" teams can and know how to). It's possible. Amazon's stream has better comp...

(e.g. I don't know for certain if the FUNi Nicktoons airings were definitely up to episode 63 with the Yamamoto score but seems it was). I can confirm that episode 63 was the last episode of the FUNi Nicktoons airing which used the Yamamoto score before switching over to Kikuchi for the rest of the...

while the fans will get upset, but they won't do anything.

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

I feel like if they were going to DVNR the show then they would have done so with Kai first off. Kai episodes 1-98 actually do have DVNR on them, so the idea of DB/Z/GT getting some kind of DVNR treatment for the possible upcoming HD versions isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility (now gran...

Did Toei actually DVNR the blu-ray release of the movies?

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

They were using footage from the Bardock special and probally didnt want to rescan it. That and the fact that 16mm will ALWAYS look softer than 35mm due to the detail difference between the two film stocks, there's just no getting around that unless Toei actually retained all of the original raw el...
