Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

No. TVs display it at whatever resolution the TV can upscale it to while maintaining the intended aspect ratio. The source resolution is 720x480. Your TV upscales that to 1440x1080 for a 1080p monitor. On a CRT, it would natively display it at 720x480, but shape the pixels such that it was a 4:3 im...

Re: Help Me Gather the Lost Remants of the Toonami Dub?

First up, there was a version between versions 1 and 2, and that was what aired on YTV. I know some people who are trying to get this stuff, and I know someone who's already got at least some of it. Anyway, essentially what this was was that starting from the Garlic Jr. saga's first airing, all Fun...

Help Me Gather the Lost Remants of the Toonami Dub?

I'm interested in restoring the lost Funimation's Dragon Ball Z Ver. 1 and Funimation's Dragon Ball Z Ver. 3 . The versions that aird on WB and Cartoon Network (or YTV if you're Canadian), from 1996 till 2008 (?). Ver. 2 would be what was on the DVD singels, and Ver. 4 would be what's on all DVDs/BD...

Re: Why did Toei change Broly’s hair color?

That's just the Gold Hair Version of the toy. Normally he had yellow hair just like all the Super Saiyans, but also, each Super Saiyan had a special Gold Hair Version too. Toei just loves the color green. From tinting DB green on all its releases to givving Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh! green hair in th...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

But TVs display it as 640x480, yeah? I feel like that would make it the ideal resolution to compare. Even if there's a better stretching/squishing method, it wouldn't be as relevant. Correct me if I'm wrong, tho. I'm not the biggest nerd in this particular category.

Yes, BluezaBladeNX! That'd be great! :D Yeah they do look good as replacements for the boxes themselves, and to answer you question he has them up on Google Plus. I don't know at this point if he has the artwork from the DB Dragon Box there or not, it was mostly the covers of the FUNi Z Boxes. Thank...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

What do you mean my Singles screenshots "aren't true quality", tho? They're in 640×480 (proper standard definition, 4:3 resolution). Yours is 720 × 540. Plus, looking at the clouds in the background of your screenshot, it's noticeably not the correct frame.

Re: Custom Dragon Box covers/cases

They look quite nice. Did the place you got the coverart from have coverart for the Dragon Ball Dragon Box? I don’t have a use for it, but would just love to gaze upon it’s beauty in as high quality as possible.

How? FUNi owns the license.
They own it in the United States, but maybe not Canada, and definitely not in Greenland, Iceland, or Europe. I don't know where Animemaakuo lives, but if it's outside the U.S. then there's a shot.

This and it's not an investment if you don't expect a return.
If he were to get enough money for distribution rights, it would bring in money. Hopefully enough to at least pay for the licensing, remastering, and publishing, but ideally enuf to make a profit.

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

Crowdfunding is an option. That’s how fans are now able to buy the Mother and Mother 2 albums for the first time outside Japan. And on vinyl. Japan never even got that.

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?

Re: Has there ever been an English va that captured Masako Nozawak's performance as Son Goku?

Having a similar pitch is not the same thing. He's nowhere even remotely in the ballpark of Nozawa. It's a self defeating goal to try to emulate another actor's performance. Any actor who takes the role should just act as Goku. It would be like every Bond trying to copy Connery instead of being Jam...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

I currently can't get framecompare to load, but does framecompare allow for a full 1080p? The reason I haven't been using it is becuz I couldn't find any way to view the full image. It was always the scaled down version.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Everyone acting like this is the last Dragon Ball Z set ever being made when there is no indication of then slowing (heck they are still putting Dragon Ball Super out on DVD) and I feel you agree with that to some point as well. I'm pretty sure they'd clearly add this being the final home video rel...

Frame compare's not working for me but here' screenshots (I made the season set shots smaller so they're the same size) But the shots of the Black Brick that were posted on Funimation's blog are in 1080p. Why did you shrink them down to 720p, then say you had to shrink down your 1080p screenshots o...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

They didn't disregard it for arbitrary reasons. The season sets sold better and actions speak louder than words. My issue with this is that it wasn't widescreen that made the difference in the fans' purchasing decisions, it was the episode count, price point, and timing that made the difference. Ri...

I don't think the Ultimate Uncut Editions had next episode previews. But the other episodes all did (except for maybe for the two episodes that were combined into one to remove most of the gruesome death of Kulilin). They included them all in their Rock the Dragon Set. It's truly one of the best hom...

Had they not DNRd it, and had they had the goal of restoring the original colors rather than changing them to the comic’s colors, it would’ve been the untoppable best the series has ever / could ever look.
