Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

That's the thing which really sucks, in that FUNi for some deliberate reason does not want to put out a release of Z that respects the show for what it is . No... to them it's all about polishing and making it look like a new thing and doing so as cheaply as possible as we have seen with the Orange...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

I don't have any of the blue bricks and the box set for all the volumes looks really, really tempting but that price tag has me hesitant yet again. its a shame too because the box looks really nice.

If it was 60-70 dollars less I'd have jumped on it.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

HxH1999 probably doesnt have the rights to get released into bluray, after madhouse did their adaptation. But yea just for Matsushima's episodes, i'd love to see a good bluray of that. I always found it weird how runouni kenshin never got a bluray, besides the glorious ovas Matsushima was a beast o...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

In general there are very few examples of a long running weekly anime series from the pre digital era that have been remastered for blu ray in Japan. Seasonal shows like gundam have been remastered but nothing of the hundreds of episodes variety. The only ones I can think of are yu yu hakusho and R...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Do we know if the footage in the trailer is footage funi is using for this boxset? I know you will say why would it be in the trailer if it wasn't? but it could be placeholder footage just like the box art. Or maybe that's just my wishful thinking and optimism. lol We ultimately won't KNOW, and the...

Re: The arrogant entrance of Future Trunks and Shin to DBZ

I'll never forget how Piccolo hyped up Supreme Kai so much only for him to never really live up to any of it. Dabura and Buu slap him around and he eventually becomes a useless gag character halfway into that very same arc.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I really enjoy both versions of Z, the Funi version from the late 90s-early 00s and the jp version so hopefully they're able to fit both versions on this anniversary collection. But I guess the banger Falconer soundtrack and the hilarious funi dub will be bonuses at this point for me just so long as...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I get the feeling it will be 4:3 finally but the coloring will be fucked up and really saturated. I dunno, I just don't think they will top their Level sets. Funimation has probably given up on making a similar product due to its low sales.

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

It was all pretty tame compared to the stuff I've seen in a lot of other anime/manga so it never bothered me one bit. Some of the funniest scenes for me in classic DB are Bulma thirsting over Blue and Krillin's strategy to use her titties and Roshi's nosebleeding over them to find the invisible man.

Re: Garlic Jr saga pros and cons

Maron was definitely a positive for me with this arc(especially back when I was 11). Her eps were usually the best ones in it lol. Other pros were...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

They are moving way too slow for my patience. I ended up caving in and downloading the japanese volumes a few months back I would prefer owning physical copies and supporting the series though.

Re: Dragon Ball Kai (2009) vs. Dragon Ball Super

Gonna go with Super all the way since its new content that's pretty entertaining and has had some nice fights in it. Although the animation and art was iffy during the movie retellings, Super really picked up during the Trunks arc. I never really got all the hype for Kai to be honest. I actually lik...

Re: Will Toei/Pony Canyon do a Blu-ray release?

Its a shame really. i want to see Maron in bluray quality already dammit! :|

I think if Toei was going to do it they would have by now. Probably around the 2014-2016 period to capitalize off the new DBZ movies and the new series Super.

Re: Dragon ball in Japanese not allowed on youtube?

Well, I'm sorry, but it's kind of common sense that's not going to fly. He didn't have authorization to post the content, simple. I watched Dragon Ball Z subbed legally through Hulu years ago, by the way. Toei has offered it through such methods. I don't know if it's hosted anywhere like that anymo...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

I'd think a lighter hearted slice of life Dragon Ball series would still be pretty interesting. There'd of course be fans who wouldn't like it but I'm sure plenty that would aswell. That's what I liked about the Dragon Ball Z anime in that it's filler sort of had that. I've never liked filler for o...

Nope not unjustified at all. I can't watch Kai because of the poor music placement Toei did, I'll just stick with Z.
