Re: Would General Blue be considered offensive to the LGBTQ+ community in this day and age?

To echo what others have been saying... Manga version of Blue : No. From what I remember, the fact that Blue's gay rarely actually comes into play in the manga, and when it does, it's never in a derogatory way. He's kind of just a villain who happens to be gay, and a fairly competent one, at that. O...

Re: Viz & The Dragon Ball Manga

A complete Full Colour release of the manga would have made a fantastic 30th anniversary celebration. I mean, yeah, four or five years ago when the manga celebrated its 30th anniversary in December of 2014, that would have been fantastic. But right now, it would seem a touch out of place to be cele...

Re: Viz & The Dragon Ball Manga

Apparently the problem is that Shueisha are continually dragging their feet on the licensing, and refuse to handle it any other way than to license each arc individually, separately, and laboriously. I hear that all of the time, but if that's really the case, then how come Planeta Cómic seems to ha...

Re: Episode #0472 (28 April 2019)

I had noticed the site-wide change to "Boo" and was glad to hear you discuss it. Actually, after reading the topic, that was primarily what I was hoping you'd bring up, weirdly. You did not disappoint! I wouldn't mind hearing more in-depth discussion on more name translation choices in the future. A...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

They really could make an amazing remaster of DB, DBZ and DBGT but TOEI has shown to cut corners in making cheap HD transfers.

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

Question about Z Recut: Do you have plans on what you're going to do about the opening themes in English? As in are you going to use CHA-LA HEAD CHA-LA and We Gotta Power for the backing tracks of the opening sequences, or are you gonna stick to the Mark Menza opening theme? If he's syncing it to K...

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

For Z Recut, will you be using the level sets for the Saiyan Arc and then just Dragon Box footage for the rest? How about broadcast audio for the Japanese track? Nah, I'm just going to stick with (hopefully color-corrected) Dragon Box footage throughout. However, I do plan on also making an HD vers...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Probly the package art. Toei did make the art for the season blurays The art/package does look very much TOEI's work but that's about it. Those Blu-ray boxsets of the Saiyan arc, Freeza arc, Cell arc and Majin Boo arc look pretty awesome to me but the remaster... pass. Don't know if this has been p...

Dragon Ball clips in YouTube videos

I hope to start making YouTube videos discussing the things I love, chief among them being Dragon Ball, and I've been wondering how to approach the usage of Dragon Ball clips in videos. I know that, once upon a time, Toei was pretty diligent when it came to flagging and removing videos on YouTube th...

Letterbox please. Screw cropping forever. I never want to see cropped Dragon Ball ever again in my life. No cropping whatsoever, please. Visual consistency be damned. Good. I'm relieved that these were your answers. I didn't want to have to crop them, though I would have if enough people wanted it....

In the Dragon Box footage version of the Boo Saga, are you going to make Super Boo's eyes red consistently like Toriyama intended, or just have them suddenly turn red as they do in the anime? And for the Kai footage version, are you going to use the Japanese version that has his eyes red from the s...

Incredibly well done. Says exactly what we all want to say better than any of us could say it. Going to tweet this to them immediately. This should be played in every board room to every executive at Funimation.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Honestly, I still don't think the new footage looks much better, or really any different, than the 2014 BDs. I feel like they're doing their best to convince us it's better by comparing it to the worst possible releases they can. Is it really necessary to compare it to the orange bricks? Of course i...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I was browsing the "Color Corecting the Dragon Boxes" thread and saw that some of the footage has some pretty bad damage. I’ve come across examples like these in Kai, but they’re always limited to a single frame, usually at the beginning of the shot, and unless you’re going through frame by frame, ...

So I'm kind of way overdue on this due to how fast the posts are piling up in this thread, but I would just like to point out to anyone who is comparing the framing here to the Dragon Boxes that... the Dragon Boxes were given a shot-for-shot reframing based off the original negatives. That framing ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It looks like what they did for the Dragon Ball blue bricks, which were zoomed in about the same amount, I think. This might be worse. The Blue Bricks were zoomed in from the original 4:3 footage while this take an already 16:9 cropped footage and seemingly zooms it in. They didn't do that, though....
