Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Either this dub's existence was a troll attempt or this dub will simply never see the light of day.

Re: As A FUNi Dub Fan, Has Z Kai Replaced Z for you?

Unquestionably, yes. I cannot watch the previous DBZ dubs because of how badly they've aged (or rather, the dubs were never good to begin with and I was too young to notice). I only wish Dragon Ball could get redubbed too. The pacing is exactly what I want it to be and I don't miss the padded materi...

Re: Is Toriyama just giving fans what they want?

He certainly isn't giving me what I want. Super has given me nothing but frustration as a huge Dragon Ball fan. I'm getting more enjoyment out of DBZ Kai: The Final Chapters. The fan service wouldn't bother me so much if the story was actually decent. There isn't even really a story. The story is ju...

Re: How Would YOU Fix The Goku Black Arc?

Goku Black's backstory completely killed any chance the character had at being worthwhile. I don't know what they could have done, but I'm not a writer and his backstory feels like something out of GT (especially because of the Super Dragon Balls). Perhaps Goku Black could have been Goku from a diff...

Re: Goku Black/Zamasu best villains in Dragon Ball since _____?

Goku Black's backstory completely killed any potential the character had at being worthwhile. And Super Dragon Balls? Really? That was an unwelcome reminder of GT. I almost feel like it would be less stupid if Goku Black were just a random Saiyan who looked like Goku, similar to Tullece.

Re: Is Nozawa's voice the only thing that turns people off of the Japanese version?

I don't like Nozawa at all, and it's not just because she's voicing adult male characters. Her voice is grating, and her acting at times can be as bad as Stephanie Nadolny's (Gohan's blubbering in Japanese is a form of torture). She completely ruins the Japanese version for me. I like most of the ot...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" On Blu-ray: News & Discussion

Basically, DBZ will only stop being rereleased when it no longer makes a profit or when it's no longer worth the effort.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" On Blu-ray: News & Discussion

Done for good? That's a good one. We'll either get a half-assed 4:3 release immediately following these sets (since it's either that or a hiatus), or if FUNimation's sworn off 4:3 Z releases, I could imagine a one to two year hiatus before we get Orange Brick 3.0. Also, wouldn't the Kai Buu Saga BD'...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

I don't know, as much as I enjoy Kai for the dub, I have very little interest in the Japanese version. I agree that the voice acting isn't up to snuff, and it's just too low budget. I kinda look past that when it comes to FUNimation's releases, because it just might be the best English dub we get fo...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

As long as there's money to be made from DBZ, they will milk it. Not throwing us a bone would mean giving the series a break, since they're not going to immediately do another widescreen release. There's still an audience for the 4:3 AR, even if it isn't a huge one, what with the Dragon Boxes being ...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

The money made from this release could always fund some sort of Dragon Box Z upscale. Or maybe a less intensive remaster in 4:3. Do people actually care about the tape marks and such?

We'll see what happens when the current release is over. I'd honestly be more surprised if DBZ took a break for a year or two over us getting another 4:3 release immediately following the remastered season BDs.

I guess because Toei doesn't want FUNimation to put out a release that would rival their own.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

As much as FUNimation is to blame when it comes to the lack of a quality [in print] Z release, their footage should not be of such poor quality that remastering is required. After FUNimation has made Toei so much money, you'd think they'd give FUNi better quality footage.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

I like the ideas behind some of the padding. Like, Gohan being further developed before the Z Warriors take on the Saiyans is a good idea, in theory. As is the training for the human characters being elaborated on. I just don't think the execution was very good. I know people like Gohan and the orph...
