Re: If Harmony Gold was more, names still around?

The fact that people still use *Hercule*, despite that name almost never being mentioned in the uncut dub, says a lot. That's because it's used quite frequently (always?) in video games, or at least it used to be. Otherwise, yes, it would be a TV-only thing. Absolutely, evident by the fact that man...

Now to be fair, it was literally FUNimation's first two releases, ever (besides maybe Chuck-e-cheese or something).

Re: Translated NEP for DB and GT

The GT singles have all of the next-episode previews subtitled. To my knowledge, no English release has NEPs for the original series.

Re: All-purpose Dragon Ball sale/trade thread.

I am selling FUNimation's Dragon Boxes 3-7 because the cost of college textbooks and actuarial exams is fucking bullshit. Not mint condition, but very good overall. Can send more pictures if needed. Also selling Trunks/Bardock double feature on Blu-ray. Every disc works perfectly to my knowledge. W...

I know it's Yamamoto/Propaganda, but a slightly more electronic Battle Point Unlimited might be able to pass as a Faulconer song.

Re: Who's Your Favorite English Narrator?

Doc Morgan because he sounds the most like a wise old grandfather telling you a fairy tale, followed up by Brice Armstrong, who is good as well, but didn't sound quite mystical enough to my recollection.

Re: DBZ Ocean DUB Freeza Saga

Well, I don't know for certain, but I think it may have just been that they took a while to decide that this dub should exist, and when they did they just picked up wherever the show last left off. I don't recall why it exists, tho. It aired in both the UK and Ireland and probably also the Netherla...

Re: Ability to edit posts indefinetely is now gone?

Wasn't there some talk about removing the ability to indefinitely edit your posts in the event that someone goes on a deleting spree, as has happened in the past? I'm 99% sure there was because of stuff like a certain member editing most of his old posts and typing in "b" in all those posts. Why is...

Re: *sigh* Can someone just like...give me their Dragon Boxe

higher quality Japanese audio track. Is that true? I know they're better then the Orange Bricks, but I've heard Funimation's Blu-rays have the best audio on any official release so far. It's pretty negligible, honestly. Yes, the audio is better on the Dragon Boxes than the orange bricks, but not en...

Re: Does Toriyama hate Gohan and Yamcha?

No, he's just a hasbeen writer that most likely forgot what made his most famous creation so popular and influential in the first place. Pretty much this. He's the new George Lucas, intent on trying to ruin his own franchise. Except nothing about Toriyama's original work, the manga, has changed in ...

You can look up screenshots on the forum, but as far as I know, too, the sixth and seventh US boxes are just as sharp as the Japanese ones. Must have gotten a better encoder or something.

If I tried hearing the Japanese cast speaking in English it just wouldn't work, they'd end up sounding like foreign English speakers with Japanese accents. Nozawa would probably end up morphing into Rolf from Ed Edd n Eddy by the end of it. Even further proof that Peter Kelamis and Masako Nozawa ar...

Was the fact that FUNimation had access to "digital paint" at the time (1995) actually technologically-impressive by comparison?

Re: Doesn't Funi care about releasing DBZ in its original AR

I believe sales of the orange bricks and season blu-rays boils down to two things, convenience and the Faulconer score. Both releases came at a reasonable price with a high number of episodes per set and they gave the American fans the score they wanted for nostalgia. In 2007, i don't think anyone ...
