Kind of sucks this man's reputation was ruined over lies and rumors.
Some of those "lies and rumors" have a lot of posts on this forum, y'know, and they don't appreciate your sentiment toward their factual unfortunate experience with Vic.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Yeah, the gatekeeping (in the most general sense and not accusing anyone here) is getting super old and I'm just done waiting for other people to be happy before I buy something that's just for my private viewing in my own home. I think a lot of us are just tired of waiting for permission from other...

Re: If Toei ever announces they'll do a Blu-ray Dragon box

Nope! I supported Blu-ray specifically for the US and Japan to be in the same region for what I thought was the inevitable Toei DBZ Blu-rays. They never came and I'm satisfied with Funi's new DBZ Steelbooks. There's no reason for me to import DBZ anymore. The only time I did import is when the Orang...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

I’m double dipping. Have the 30th anniversary and the packaging stinks so I’m getting the steelbooks too. The orange bricks and season sets were garbage and I never supported. These are watchable. I hated the 16x9 cropping. HATED. I support OAR. I’m all for widescreen if it is native. The set is wa...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

I ha e the first three and I'm almost through the first set. The 4:3 alone is enough to make this worth it for me. This is the best non-Japanese release that'll likely be finished and not cancelled part way through and it's worth every penny I paid for it. If you're still waiting on something better...

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...

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.

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...

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.

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...
