All that money spent on merchandise for a series you can't watch properly. :lol:

Re: Dragon Box Audio Vs. Broadcast Audio — How is there even an argument?

To be completely honest, I’ve lost the will to continue uploading on Nyaa. I didn’t do it for the attention. Nobody held a gun to my head. It was a way to give back to the fans. Last October, I received a box of Betamax/Hi8 tapes containing audio from the DBZ Fuji broadcast, and then another box in...

Re: Dragon Box Audio Vs. Broadcast Audio — How is there even an argument?

Filtering can cut it back by quite a lot, and if we can get superior sources(As we have done for Z episodes 51 and 95), it'll be totally gone. Really, there's no contest; broadcast audio is just strictly better. Even in aspects that the broadcast audio is flawed, various forms of filtering combined...

Re: Dragon Box Audio Vs. Broadcast Audio — How is there even an argument?

The only thing I have against the broadcast audio is if you're listening to it with headphones, there's this annoying buzzing sound that sort of hums in the background sometimes (often) when characters talk. Filtering can cut it back by quite a lot, and if we can get superior sources(As we have don...

Why did Toei change Broly’s hair color?

I don’t mind the changes, but it wasn’t necessary. In fact, the old Bandai figures had him with gold hair, not green :think:. So, why the change?

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Is it possible as an external company to licence the series? If, say, you lived in Canada, which I don’t THINK Funimation has the rights to, you could maybe get a scan of the (actual) original film and release it there. Or maybe convince Toei to hire you to remaster the series for THEM to sell? I u...

It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Ever since my SRTO hit, I’ve entertained the thought of investing $500,000+ of my personally money into remastering the entire series. I would like to hire a company or group of people to work on this under strict supervision. We need to preserve this series in the best possible quality. It’s time f...

Durr, me dumb. I meant Shueisha. They are the biggest problem, imo, they are the ultimate rights holder aren't they? They should have clamped down on the likes of Toei and Bandai's bullshit before things spiralled out of control to where we are now, Toei lied themselves into censoring the movie BDs...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Won't be that great. DNR'd and muffled audio, plus no NEPs. This is remaster is being done by FUNimation which should be clear for those who have read their blog post. I am fully aware of what I'm going to get here. I don't need NEPs, I already said my piece about being able to tolerate the DNR, an...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I won’t be buying this set as much as I’d like to, unless it changes. But if FUNi decides to improve this release the way it ought to be, then I’ll buy it for a higher price on eBay, or wait until someone uploads it to Nyaa. Until then, I’m saving $350 8)

I’ve been looking forward to a nice blu ray release of Dragonball Z since the cancellation of the levels and to see that it’s this, is just disappointing.
