Re: A decade ago... Kenji Yamamoto was fired

Meh, it’s obviously much easier to take an already finished product and tweak it in ways that can improve on any perceived flaws or take it in a new direction entirely, than it is to make a product that’s high caliber from scratch (and he’s clearly incapable of doing the latter). This is true. This...

Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

No offense but you come off as a bit naive here, just because you've never personally witnessed hate does not mean it does not exist in your state. Not all hatred is obvious shit like KKK members burning crosses, sometimes racism is way more subtle and structural in nature like denying someone a lo...

Re: Dragon Ball 4K Remaster (16mm)

He has posted proof of it being 16mm on his twitter hasn't he? Plus its 35mm that comes after 16mm not 32mm. Oh... Haha, yeah, I thot 32 seemed off, but nothing else seemed right at the time. And, I dunno, since I haven't been to his Twitter. It's not film at all, it's a Cel scan. It looks like it ...

Re: Dragon Ball Z/3/Budokai Series Official Soundtrack CD's: Impossible to Find?

Actually the difference is that Yamamoto was charged with making OST’s , and it has that name for a reason. He clearly didn’t understand the first 5 Katakana (オリジナル) that get tacked onto these releases most of the time because literally every “composition” he ever made was pretty much taken in part...

Re: Rescoring?

I think they're on seperate channels. So if you open the audio file in Audacity, you'd see all five (or six?) channels. If it were a stereo track, it would only have two. Hm... They're linkt together, tho, so, like, you gotta seperate them. Click the track's drop-down menu, then click on the seperat...

Re: Which characters have the most unique eyes / face design?

I would've posted Imperfect Cell but someone mentioned it, dude looks straight out of a horror movie. In terms of unique faces, I think Upa also deserves a mention, the little guy looks more like a Peanuts character and is quite androgynously designed, as Kuririn pointed out when they met. https://...

Try telling that to the minorities and LGBTQ receiving heaps of abuse. Somehow I don't see that going too well for you. At least in my State, I really would have to agree that it's blown out of proportion. I mean, aside from certain hicks hating anyone L, G, B, T, Q, or the ones who fall under the ...

Re: Diccolo's Combo rescore of Kai [An Ongoing Project]

The remix of that "Piccolo Fuses with Nail" song by Faulconer Productions is quite perfect. It sounds very Kikuchi inspired with the strings and bell, but the style of the strings seems more Yamamoto, I suppose. In any case, it fits the show, and I approve.

Re: 1st teaser of Dragon Ball Evolution

If anything, it HELPED the franchise, right? I recall reading that the directors or whoever ignored Toriyama's suggestions, and then the movie bombed, so he made sure to get some control over the next movie that came out (Battle of Gods). That's correct isn't it? So if anything, I guess we should be...

Re: Dragon Ball 4K Remaster (16mm)

It would take just as much time to make a 1080p Blu-ray Disc release. Might as well go max level if you're gonna put in that kind of time/effort/money. We don't need a repeat of the 480p scans from the 2000s. With DBZ, sure it was like a year before 1080p was a thing (I think), but the re-scans done...

Meh, all I'm seeing is multi-generational grain being brought to the forefront and no appreciable detail in the backgrounds or line art. This is a cheaply made show that aired on a weekly basis from the mid 80s printed on cheap film stock, not a Studio Ghibli movie where every detail is poured over...

Re: Harmony Gold Dub Reconstruction [[DONE!!]]

Thank you for the hard work, KBABZ. It's nice to have only the audio be low quality rather than both the audio and video. It makes it the Harmony Gold dub far more presentable. Till now it was impossible to show it to friends.

Re: Akira Toriyama on Saiyan Hairstyles - Lost Article Translated

I feel like maybe Toriyama's use of the word "bald" might be a case of it being a translation from Japanese to Spanish to English, and how the word can have different connotations in each language. Like, I think in Japanese, there's a "bald (from balding)" and "bald (from shaving)", so Toriyama's sa...

瞬間移動 (shunkan'idō) as a whole means "teleportation". You can translate it as 瞬間(shunkan/instantaneous) and 移動 (idō/movement), but why stop there? Why not 瞬 (shun/instant), 間 (kan/tele-), 移 (i/trans-), and 動 (dō/-ation)? Instant Teletransation . And in reverse, we could translate "teleportation", as ...

Re: Internationalized romanticized Japanese names?

No I meant it's common in manga and anime for character names to be written in Katakana instead of their original Hiragana or Kanji. So that basically it doesn't mean much that it's written differently, in terms of the intent. Again, the usage of Katakana for names is common, and it's not about for...

For Makankosappo usually adapt it Demonic Piercing Death Cannon, for Gyarikku Ho, I usually go with Gyarlic Gun, where it’s still different but you can tell it came from the base word. Kaioh, the Galactic Overseer. Would call him the Galactic King but the character in Jaco/Super complicates that. U...
