Re: All-purpose Dragon Ball sale/trade thread.

Is there any interest in the Chouzenshuu and the Chougashu?

I've got the full set and it's just sitting in storage so I'd be happy to part with it but postage from Australia would be expensive.

Re: Why does Infinite World get overlooked?

The game never even released in Australia so I couldn't play it. :lol: That and Sagas were the two DBZ PS2 games that never saw a release in Australia. I never cared to play them because I heard so many bad things about them. Huh? I hadn't actually gotten into DB at that point, but I distinctively ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I read Vegeta's refusal to use instantaneous movement again as a way to keep the status quo. This arc reads like Toyotaro was allowed to come up with an idea entirely on his own, provided it didn't have any long term ramifications on future projects.

Re: Level 1.1 back...in stock?

On the title cards sure.

But @Robo4900 seems to think there was some additional noise added to the picture following the DNR pass. This isn't true, the grain structure in the Level sets is from the film itself - not added in post like the 30th Anniversary set.

Re: Level 1.1 back...in stock?

Sorry what do you mean by fake grain? The level sets certainly have dupe grain as they’re multigenerational copies but they only applied a light DNR process. They didn’t re-add any grain or noise after the dust, fix and noise pass.

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

It's a shame the broadcast audio has all of this associated drama with it because I love that I've been able to remux my R2s with the superior audio.

If that's as good as DBZ gets I can live with it.

Re: Dragonball GT original credit scroll

Of course, the show was only animated at 24fps Correction: not really! It was PRESENTED in 24fps, but a lot of the time the actual drawn animation was 12fps because that's cheaper and faster. Unless something was really fast, or it was a showcase shot like the final shot of Goku in GT with his big ...

Re: State of the Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z Broadcast Audio?

Honestly it’s great that it’s out there. There’s even a recent release (that I believe a member of this forum was involved with) that times the tracks for the R2J Dragon Box Z and provides both an audio and video sync. It’s sad that fans have to go the extra mile but I’ve got my remuxed Dbox episode...

Re: Regarding the releases of the original "Dragon Ball" TV adaptation - particularly the "Dragon Box"?

The Dragon Ball Dragon Box release is similar, if slightly inferior to the Dragon Box Z release. The image quality as you would expect due to the age of the masters involved is slightly worse and there are some pretty bad frame alignment issues in some episodes (during the RR arc). Overall it is muc...

Re: Is admitting to have watched and liked Super like admitting to have done something 'naughty'?

Wait what?

So your question is that does admitting to watching Dragon Ball Super have the same social stigma as admitting to watching pornography as a minor?

I'd like to congratulate you on your novel premise, it's a new one for sure.

It's a commercial.

I think we should be thankful for the few tiny snippets of decent animation that are buried in there with all of the trash.

Gotta say I feel the same. I hear a lot that Dragon Boxes look terrible on a 50+" TV, but Christ I'd pull my hair out looking at this version of the show. They don't - at least the original R2 releases look fantastic on my 55" 4K Sony Bravia. I don't doubt the lower bit-rates on the R1s cause them ...
