Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" On Blu-ray: News & Discussion

I've been thinking about getting the Trunks and Bardock double feature on BD. Can anyone confirm or deny whether or not that 2-disc set is truly better than the original DVD version? Is it just as good as the new DBZ season sets in terms of picture quality? The Blu-Rays are a substantial upgrade in...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" On Blu-ray: News & Discussion

Can anyone confirm if the default 5.1 track is better than the one on the bricks? The original score with the dub was very low on those sets.

Dub & Cropping Questions

For the DBZ movies, does anyone know why the scripts were innacurate? I sometimes get the time-table of certain things in regards to the franchise jumbled. Was it laziness, or did Funimation suffer from the same translation issues that f'd up their scripts for the season 3 dub and beyond? Lastly, wh...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" On Blu-ray: News & Discussion

I didn't know whether or not to ask this in a separate topic, so I'll just post here. Basically, for any of you who've bought these sets, does the widescreen bother you a little bit, or not? Are you really happy with these? For me, I love 'em. I mean, these were what the bricks should've been from t...

Re: The Lack Of Online For Budokai HD Collection

They didn't add an online feature because the reward would not be worth the work put into it. Developers would have to go in and build the mode from the ground up. On top of that they would need to provide dedicated servers for the players. Unlike, say Capcom's Street Fighter series, the Dragonball...

Re: The Lack Of Online For Budokai HD Collection

Well, yeah, I did. It was in my opinion that I feel that way, though. You're perfectly entitled to think otherwise. It's just that, within the realm of pure fighting and not simulation, the HD collection would've benefited greatly with online capability. I would even say that maybe Infinite World ha...

The Lack Of Online For Budokai HD Collection

Anyone know any reasons as to why the HD collection for parts 1 and 3 doesn't have online capability? I mean, sure, Raging Blast 2 and Ultimate Tenkaichi have online, if I remember correctly, but those games were less than stellar. Most people, I think, would say that Budokai 3 was the pinnacle.

Re: Gave GT A Chance, Hated It

They didn't have source material to base the anime off of, so of course it won't be of the same caliber as the previous anime. As I was watching GT, I kept saying that over and over in my head, as a way to compensate, but it just didn't work. I know they focused more on trying to cap-off what made ...

Gave GT A Chance, Hated It

So earlier this year, me and my brother decided that we'd give GT a chance. We tried, and ended up finding it absolutely terrible. Those early episodes with Goku, Pan, and Trunks "fighting" those aliens who prefered to defeat our heroes by dancing was out-right blasphemy. The one with Trunks posing ...

Re: A Fellow Member Converts

When creating this thread, I knew I was mostly stickin' a big middle-finger to all the defending I've ever given the original Z dub but, eh, I said screw it. With the Namek episodes I'm up to via my sets, I couldn't forcefully make myself try and take that dub seriously anymore. Heh, and this is com...

Re: A Fellow Member Converts

I've tried watching the original Z dub with Kikuchi's score and it still doesn't work... Mostly 'cause of two reasons: the dialogue's still there, and the music itself is too low on the season sets. Overall, the original handeling of Z by Funi was just all over the place. I guess I didn't mind the s...

A Fellow Member Converts

During my current run watching DBZ, things have felt a little off lately. I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but I came to the realization that it was simply the Funimation dub with its problems. I don't need a "punched-up" script with corny dialogue to enjoy Z, and I used to wonder why I had ...

Re: FUNimation to put DBZ on Blu-Ray

This release is basically a dream come true for us dubbies; 4:3, a new transfer, and the score that we love. The DBoxes and Kai were pretty much useless and meant nothing to me, so it's good to see Funimation actually paying attention to ALL their fans with this release and redeeming themselves. Thi...

Re: What's the story with Gohan/Bulma/Freeza's VA's replacem

All that's important is that in all three cases, the new VAs are exponentially better in the roles than the previous ones. Says who, you? Don't think so. It's not of import as to why those three were recasted. Kai, overall, has proven to be nothing more than a mess, both in music and excecution. Sa...
