Re: Why were 4:3 AR screenshots used on the Orange Bricks?

It's clear they just made all of the packaging before the remastering was even done, considering they''re all screenshots using their old digibeta masters.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I think a redub would be too expensive and take too long, especially for a series that sells regardless of dub quality. So many people say that, but with how big FUNimation has become and how much money they've made from the franchise (and butchered video releases), I'm sure they could afford it wi...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The cropping, colors and very soft details make this footage look like FUNimation's old digibeta masters without the edge enhancement. Certainly not good for a Blu-ray release. I swear the people who buy this knowing it’s shitty have Stockholm Syndrome in regards to Dragon Ball home releases Yeah, I...

Not really sure why you need all the super specific form terminology for this question, but...

Re: Why wasn't DB Kai a completely new animated series?

Trust me. You don't want the version of Kai where it was new animation. Toei were handling 7 other shows in-and-out of 2009, not counting One Piece. They had to fill something in that timeslot, and they were already stretched thin. It would've looked as bad as, if not, worse, than early Super. Plus...

Re: Camera Pans!

Do you have Photoshop Kunzait? I noticed a fair few brightness changes on the edges of the frames; the Automerge feature in PS can help remove those. Or, if using a free image editor like GIMP (like I do), just running a large, soft eraser along the side of each screenshot when joining them will ma...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The joke is that like the orange bricks, they're shit. I think it'd make more sense to just call them the HD Orange Bricks, but whatever. The reason they were called the orange bricks is because the shape and size of their packaging were akin to bricks. Calling the BD sets "HD Orange Bricks" makes ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Would you be able to call them the Season Blu-rays rather than "Blu Bricks"? Because there's a Dragon Ball DVD release that we call the Blue Bricks, so your naming can possibly create some confusion. I started calling them that after seeing a few users here do it. Maybe if I add a hyphen, so Blu-Br...

Re: Samsung ends Blu-ray player production, impact on DB media?

It won't ever be truly lost. I would say something about this only strengthening piracy, but I won't endorse it due to the rules.

It's still fucking stupid though.

[Edit] Yup, looks like scalpers are buying up and hoarding the season 3 DVD set that has the Michael Jackson episode.

I'm a fan of Sonic, but I don't want to say I'm a "Sonic fan" due to the implications that brings with it. I mostly like the Genesis era titles, and have nostalgia for the Adventure games on the Dreamcast, and I found Generations to be good enough, but a vast majority of the modern stuff is garbage....

Re: Best looking Dragon Ball movie: The Path to Power or Super Broly?

Broly is the most well animated, and best looking Dragon Ball product to date, without question (minus the CGI, which I'd probably still take over Yukio Ebisawa's animation at least, and is still better than the previous films' CGI). Not only does it showcase many different animators and their indiv...

Re: Are these blue-bricks real or bootleg?
