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

I always assumed Majin Vegeta was okay because of Majin Kaioh in Fist of the North Star. He's not literally a magical or demonic being, but he considers himself so evil and powerful that he's given himself that title. Plus Vegeta was influenced by Babidi's magic, albeit in a limited fashion, so to m...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

So, considering that these have the same exact linework and dnr issues as the previous Season BDs, as well as the same strange Nathan Johnson recap music replacement, and the same random out of focus episodes, is it reasonable to conclude that the Season BDs were remastered in full frame, then cropp...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

While "alphabet people" is obviously derogatory and very much an alt-right bigoted term, I will say that I do feel that having as many letters of identification as in the title of the thread is a bit absurd and could make the entire community look like a joke, and thus does more harm than good.

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

For as much as I cannot stand FUNimation's treatment of the franchise, they at least have been consistently leaving the franchise uncensored since the early 2000s. Incorrect. Assuming we exclude the TV edits, and the censored/cut counterparts to the uncut home video... They still censored tons of d...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

Are Japanese standards becoming really toned down and worried about offending people lately, or is Toei just being completely moronic? Judging from Kei17's reaction, I'm sure it's the latter. For as much as I cannot stand FUNimation's treatment of the franchise, they at least have been consistently ...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Composer" Shuky Levy accused of attempted murder by Sarah Brown

It's crazy how the people behind the English dub for Dragon Ball often turned out to be such disturbed individuals. First we have Bruce Falconer the credit-stealing hack. Then we have Sean Schemmel and his hilariously fragile ego. Vic Mignogna and his fiendish ways. Now the composer for the Ocean d...

Re: Possible details on Selecta Vision's Dragon Ball (1986-1989) bluray release

They're all significantly better experiences in 4:3. Yeah, I agree. There are lots of cramped shots in movies 12 and 13 especially. A shot near the end of 12 with Goku and Vegeta standing in the distance over the bloody pond has both of their heads cropped off in the 16x9 version! I just wish the f...

Re: Why Doesn't Anyone Notice Goku's guilt in the Cell Arc?

Another line I never see mentioned is Goku telling Gohan to tell Chichi that he's sorry for always acting so selfish. Does it really count as guilt if you don't learn a damn thing from it? In the Buu arc he says he doesn't want Buu to be revived, and he wants to set up the kids to be able to protect...

A what? You take someone who's supposed to be a skilled fighter, and have them lose to whichever you're trying to hype up that day. For example, Vegeta ends up doing this a lot. Oh, it’s one of those asinine tv tropers invented terms that plagued the internet. Got it. I absolutely hate how 90% of t...

Hi everyone,

I wanted to know what is the best release of DB Kai : TFC ?

Are French and German KAZÉ Blu-ray the same, apart from the Japanese OP/ED ?

Is every release greenish, or only KAZÉ ?
Every version has the green tint. It's apparently a part of the source footage.

Because it reminds me of stuff like this: Tons of cheap Chinese knockoff toys were often also miscolored, which makes it hard for me to escape the association :D I'm getting the same impression from many Toei-original villains, especially in how they often tint the usually white Freeza force-esque ...

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: 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...
