DB 099 - An earthquake in the Kanto region DBZ 004 - The identities of the mutilated bodies found in Nagano prefecture confirmed to be a mother and her son from Chiba prefecture DBZ 121 - South Korean President Roh Tae-Woo declaring the completion of the withdrawal of U.S. nu...

Re: Problem #472 with the Dragon Boxes - DNR

I asked a friend in France who imported the Spain DB Blu-rays and said she didn't notice anything like that. Anyone here who has that can confirm? I checked it out and there's no motion blur, so it means that this was caused by a post-production edit for the DVD release. https://i.imgur.com/msg2pt9...

Re: Problem #472 with the Dragon Boxes - DNR

It's kinda surprising that this hasn't been brought up until now. It's very obvious in a lot of scenes containing dark details. I've never noticed this kind of ghosting caused by DNR in DBZ and GT, though. https://i.imgur.com/Jk92xXHm.png https://i.imgur.com/PZfnEBpm.png https://i.imgur.com/gTUOSQlm...

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

I was looking through TV recordings of the Latin American Spanish dub, and I noticed that the source of the footage changes from episode 61. The footage becomes more discolored and looks closer to the DBox masters. As I pointed out, they do seem to be still using the HG masters until episode 60. htt...

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

For your information, the early episodes of the Latin American Spanish dub (Cloverway) still uses the footage inherited from Zero y el Dragôn Mágico, so it's the very same transfer as that of the Harmony Gold dub. The same edits? Probably. The same master? probably. The same footage? probably not. ...

I am the type of person who doesn't like recreations unless there is no possibility of restoring the original materials, so while these recreated images are interesting, I think at this point, we should focus more on gathering, preserving, and restoring the remaining original sources as far as possi...

Re: First time home media release?

Good chance that the earliest home media releases came from France or one of the dubs of Spain, due to their beginning several years before the English language BLT dub of 94/95. And it could be from Hong Kong or South Korea for the same reason. It's extremely hard to track down detailed informatio...

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

I'd argue the (Albanian)dub from my home country(Kosovo) probably has to be the rarest dub of DB ever. Premiered around the early 2000s(couldn't have been later than 2002). I think I remember only seeing the first 13 episodes(though I could be wrong) and they aired it on this channel https://en.wik...

Anyway, as a Japanese DB fan- Wait, you’re Japanese yourself? That changes everything then. Since it’s your country we’re talking about (and only your country). Yes I am.

No, I think the very first English dub produced by Frontier Enterprises still remains the rarest.

I can readily find people that hated Japanese Yi Xing Long.
Actually I don't like Shibata's Yi Xing Long, too. He sounds too old and doesn't match the wild speaking tone of the character. He sounds like an old man trying to act like a young outlaw.

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

* José Luis Castañeda (Nappa and Dr. Gero): I personally think he was miscast in both roles. His flat voice doesn't fit Nappa's brute juggernaut and Dr. Gero's evil scientist personalities. I feel Kai voice actors for those characters (Héctor Reynoso and Guillermo Coria) nailed the roles more than ...

Personally I dislike One Piece because everything looks and sounds like something directly coming from scribbles on a notebook of a middle school child.
