If you wanna get technical for second, the Dragon Box is actually zoomed out so much so in some episodes that you can see the round corners of the 16mm film frame. Looks like Toei fixed this for streaming.

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

The Japanese track doesn't hold a candle to the dragon box but it if you listen to it on good speakers it'll be fine. Don't know about the dub.

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

I recently watched my copy of the Sleeping Princess 2005 DVD and I must say it is definitely the best 4:3 version of the movie out there. The framerate is completely intact because this is an older transfer, but on my television the colors look pretty great and I saw few if any artifacts.

@uzuni I would have recommended you buy the set I got which was apparently only sold in Canadian markets, but it looks like it's unavailable for the most part... https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00GJUQ0CW/ The "box" (if you could call it that) that houses all nine bulky digipaks is really just a folded pie...

Re: Dragon Ball Z Kai: Yamamoto Revival (Parts 5-8) - COMPLETED!

AAC audio is incompatible with DVD and Blu-ray. I wish these had been exported to AC3 at least. I bet you could convert the audio with Audacity or something like that. I don't know how I didn't get notified of this post before today but... Converting from a lossy source introduces artifacts and com...

Even piracy is unlikely to yield decent recordings online, though thankfully the whole run is covered. AB Groupe/Blue Water's dub of Dragon Ball GT, covering all...

This is a thread for discussion of any of the rare English dubs of Dragon Ball that have yet to be (edit: fully) preserved. Some key omissions in the canon include: -The Speedy Video dub of Dragon Ball Z eps. 1-12?, released on VCD in Malaysia (eps. 7-8 available) -The AB Groupe "Big Green" dub of t...

There's a chance that Kaze got the digital master in full HD. I'm hoping they didn't just take the Jump DVD and blow it up to ugly proportions and slap on a Dolby Digital track. But a boy can dream...

Re: Do the Dragonboxes colors look any better on OLED?

One thing many people note about the Dragonbox release of the series is that the colors look fairly faded and pale. However I noticed when watching on a CRT via component the colors seemed to be a tad less washed out. I was wondering if the same was true of an OLED TV? If there's anyone here who ow...
