Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Wow! Seasons 4 and 5 are being dropped only a month after Seasons 1-3! That's incredible and my wallet is gonna hate me for it! I wonder if they'll do 6 and 7 in January then 8 and 9 in February? Either way, it'll be nice to have an official 4:3 release on my shelves again even if it's no better tha...

Re: Would you pay Funimation via Kickstarter for a redub of the full Dragon Ball media

To answer the original question, if it did happen I would absolutely give it a watch. If Funimation, without my prompting them, came up with this idea on their own I'd contribute some money to help make it happen. However, I'd never go out of my own way to try and make them offer this. Their current...

Re: Hardcore wuxia fans, what are the biggest similarities and differences between the genre and Dragon Ball?

Because I hav way more knowledge of Hong Kong cinema than I do Wuxia, I always start off folks who like Dragon Ball ad want something more with a list that looks like this: • Return of the Dragon (aka Way of the Dragon) • 36th Chamber of Shaolin (watch the sequels, too!) • Drunken Master (the origin...

Re: Hardcore wuxia fans, what are the biggest similarities and differences between the genre and Dragon Ball?

There is a very awesome thread where all the details you're looking for are broken down. Personally, I'm more of a Golden Harvest fan so I'm more familiar with the likes of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee, but I would suggest that you watch the 36th Chamber of Shaolin trilogy and then maybe follow it up w...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

I wanna watch the show in HD, and we'll probably never get it properly... So I pre-ordered the non-steelbook version of season 1... I think Manga already confirmed they're just the same discs as the 30th Box anyway. This makes the most sense to me; it saves a LOT of money to literally re-use the sa...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

They're not even advertising this release in the US. A fan just kinda found it and now we're talking about it on our own. Theres no way anything new is on here.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

So... the limited edition... set... was... just for the box, book, and Goku figure? Alright, whatever. Just means I don't have to wait around to get these as they release nine of them over a two-year time period. Still can't help but feel a bit dicked around by Funimation. Just to be clear, Funi: I...

Re: Manga UK Releasing DBZ Blu-Rays and Steelbooks

If the regular ones pop up at a lower price in the US I might change my pre-order but if Steelbooks are my only option I'll still be alright with it.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

It’s really dumb that I’m considering these, mainly because I have all of Kai and am happy enough to keep the English dub of that. I do like the look of the steelbooks though. Also they need to release DBS Seasons and not sets dangit. Been waiting for that instead of another release of Z. Do whatev...

So much for the 30th anniversary version being a "once in a lifetime opportunity" buy lol. Oh Funi, after all these years you still haven't change.
I think the once in a lifetime opportunity was like the packagina dn the book and the statue and all that other crap.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

If I go to a movie theater and buy a ticket for a certain movie, I don't consider it a "win" if the theater remembers to play the correct movie, because it's the obvious bare-minimum thing to do. Similarly, I don't consider 4:3 DBZ releases to be a "win". The show is 4:3 so of course the home relea...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Man the prices for those steelbooks are gonna be insane in Canada smh. Why is funimation making them so expensive for? Its literally the same remaster as the 2014 Blu Rays Because to them 4:3 DBZ is a hot, rare commodity and is so special that they just have to charge so much because it's so valuab...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

I've seen nothing to suggest that they are limited, but there was nothing "limited edition" about the Dragon Box, either, until they stopped printing some of the earlier volumes in the middle of its run. When everyone was like, "What the heck, Funi" they were like, "Oh, we didn't say anything at the...

Wait, THESE are limited edition too?

So fucking sick of FUNimation making the proper aspect ratio a "rare" and "limited" thing. So fucking annoying.
I seem to have missed where it says that..!
