Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

Even going from the Toriyama manga to the Super anime is off. Goku was written more like his child-self for most of the anime run.

Re: Who is funnier, Goku or Vegeta?

Saban era Vegeta was pretty funny. "Nappa! Remind me to have you de-wormed..." "Uh-oh! He landed right in the water hazard!" But, speaking of which, that whole dub was full of insanity. One thing that always stood out to me when I revisited that dub a few years ago was when Goku put on his ragged ou...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/25/20!)

I personally think it's a wonderful dramatic moment that appears at first to be Goku putting honor (the honor of those slain) before reason. That Vegeta's actions are so beyond the pale that giving him his comeuppance for what he's done is as important as anything else. Surely it's debatable as to ...

I love this trend of massive corporations buying out their competition, leading to massive monopolies.

Re: Funi's Kai dub and accuracy

I'm surprised FUNI kept Imperfect Cell's "snake" like voice for his first stage. I remember a lot of complaining with the original DBZ dub that FUNI had each of Cell's stages with different voices, but they kept that for Kai. I actually like it since of course the english Perfect Cell voice wouldn'...

Re: My Attempt to Improve the Orange Bricks

That doesn't even look like an Orange Brick screenshot. It loos more like the Season BD to me. It's a way too blue for those episodes, and not only that, but it's half the resolution and heavily compressed, so what's even the point? Here's an actual Orange Brick screenshot from one of the overly bri...

Re: Would you pay Funimation via Kickstarter for a redub of the full Dragon Ball media

There was a time in my life where I'd be excited about the prospect of such a thing, but nowadays I'll just watch the Japanese versions or if I really need it in English, I can tolerated FUNi's Dragon Ball dub, and Kai's dub is good enough as well.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

You know, I'd consider this a tolerable release if it was the same remaster, just without that fake grain layer.

I mean, the DNR is a bad thing, but then further muddying it up with artificial noise just makes it even worse.

Re: Myth - "Funimation didn't acquire film masters of DBZ until 2008"

I mean DBZ ep 1 on the old 4:3 DVDs looks very different from the rest. By a lot of the fandom ep 1 is criticised for how it looks on these old DVDs and there was this notion that ep 1 of every release must be inferior quality. But it actually looks better than the rest. It has way more grain than ...

Re: Wow. The GT OST.

I disagree. Story took completely different direction since Saiyan saga. Goku was revelaed to be an alien and story was focused on aliens, space, time travel and even gods. Before that, Piccolo was just a "demon", in Z he was introduced as another alien. Z also introduced SSJ transformations and co...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

Thought so. If you're seeing ringing, likely what's going on here is that Toei used the Blu-ray version of Kai 2.0, which is the Japanese cut, and has horrendous sharpening on top. Might explain the sepia tint too! :lol: Those colors are clearly intentional. Even Kai 1.0 had some flashbacks with a ...
