Re: Akita TV broadcasts with different Kikuchi music

Here's the full audio of episode 92. There must be some other episodes aired on local TV channels, but I still haven't got them. https://mega.nz/#!xx523IzK!2FQlseVoZRKwnbntgHZRqkE85C78K1eporast4-Bluc Do you have any more CW broadcast clips/episodes that feature similar changes? Yeah I've got them, ...

Re: The image of the Dragon Ball Z Anime restored with the 16mm Masters?

There is no project. That tweet just took an image Kei17 posted in another thread and posted it sans context. Apparently a collector in Japan owns an original print of an episode, and shared this image with Kei. As Kei states in that thread, not all episodes are in collectors' hands. In fact, it's ...

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

Putting aside the problem with upscaled pseudo-HD footage, it is very remarkable that the Valencian dub is receiving a home video release for the first time ever (aside from the newly produced one for BoG Special Edition.) After Canal Nou shut down in 2013, the master tapes of the Valencian dub have...

Re: Do you have this image in a better quality? Remastered or redesigned?

So very few episodes are available and we don't really know which ones are? Yes. But there are a lot of film prints from other countries, so I suppose dozens of episodes are floating around the world. Oh really? That's cool. From what countries do you know of? I have no idea. There's some notes lik...

Re: Do you have this image in a better quality? Remastered or redesigned?

I think all the original prints given to TV stations were sold off at some point, so between the various collectors, every episode of DB and Z should have at least one private owner. No, they were not meant to be sold off. Legally speaking, those prints were required to be discarded, but some of th...

The amusing proof that something being sharper does not equal more detail.

Those poor, poor lines. The harsh shading edges hurt me so much.
Gosh I really hate this watercolor painting shit. It must look even worse in motion.

Re: Akita TV broadcasts with different Kikuchi music

As you know, the biggest problem with TFC was the small budget. It was produced completely in-house without any sponsors and a record company because it was not airing on Japanese TV. Especially, the music budget of a TV anime is always fully paid by a record company. In return, they sell the CD re...

Re: Akita TV broadcasts with different Kikuchi music

Oh, interesting. That's kinda neat. I never really looked into this honestly, so this is interesting and new to me; I'm very solidly not a fan of Sumitomo's Dragon Ball scoring, and I still don't get why they didn't bring Tokunaga back for Kai, TFC, Super, etc. (I'm given to understand GT was quite...

Re: Akita TV broadcasts with different Kikuchi music

Did Yukio Nagasaki have any input with Buu kai or was it mostly Satoshi Motoyama? Nagasaki worked only on the direction of voice recordings. Motoyama was in charge of everything music-related. So, would Motoyama have been the one who chose Sumitomo as the composer to replace Yamamoto too? I don't t...

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

From What I know, they started this fuckery when they released Galaxy Express 999 on Blu-ray in 2014, and they at least made an excuse about why it ended up just an upscale; They said the original film masters were missing and they had no choice but to upscale the digibeta masters produced for the ...

Re: Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

Last year Japan stopped labelling Majin Vegeta as Destruction Prince (or whatever the accurate translation was) and fully embraced calling him Majin Vegeta. Personally I really HATE "Majin Vegeta" because it's plain WRONG . "Majin" (literally translated as magic/satanic human) is the specific title...

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

If Selecta Visión is telling the truth, then this is the final nail in the coffin of the possibility of an HD remaster from Toei themselves. In recent years, Toei has never HD-scanned any of their contents produced in 16mm except for Kai whereas it has been becoming standard practice among anime/tok...

Re: Akita TV broadcasts with different Kikuchi music

I wonder if "Temporary Kikuchi" was doing proper, specific, manual placements of Kikuchi pieces. Then, Toei decided that was not worth doing for all 98 episodes, so they switched to the method I'm given to understand Kikuchi Kai to have used in the end, of simply replacing all instances of any give...

That was perfectly understandable, and quite frankly more-so than some stuff from plenty of native English speakers when they post here.
I'm just asking where is Kenji Yamamoto as of now
He lives in Kawasaki-shi, Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.
