Re: Were there any Dragon Ball releases on Betamax?

Yes. In Japan all the Dragon Ball movies and the first Dragon Ball Z movie were released on Betamax, VHS, LaserDisc, and 8mm film. Following that, they were released on VHS, LaserDisc, and 8mm film. Never seen any laserdiscs for the DB films or proof that they even exist, apart from the 10th annive...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

People wanna pirate that's mostly their prerogative but what irks me is people who do and don't support then series in any capacity whether it be buying merch, Manga, video releases etc. Another thing DBS streams, people still watch it illegally via a stream before the simulcast goes live.

Re: Is being able to watch original DBZ in a non-cropped format for a reasonable price too much to ask?

I was the one who posted about that recap change. It is only episodes 1-8 on Disc 1 of the Season 1 BD, which is an incredibly random number since disc 1 contains 10 episodes. This change also applies to the eyecatch music in those episodes too. Once you get to episode 9, it's the same music as all ...

Re: Has Dragon Ball been remastered to HD or not?

This is definitely not an HD scan. I agree with Hakkaibills in thinking that it's just a quick avisynth upscale. I even reported it as one when it was uploaded. That's probably why it got removed...

Re: Tired debate, but is a 4:3 presentation of DBZ necessary when we all have 16:9 tv's?

I'm pretty surprised at how many people here rooted for 16:9. I've always thought this forum leaned more toward preferring 4:3, the purist's perspective.

Unfortunately, Dragon Ball Z skipped my birth week (maybe for Golden Week?), otherwise episode 264 would have aired right on my birthday in Japan... However, Chapter 517 (the antepenultimate chapter in the entire run) debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump #23 on May 9, one day before my birthday so I'll tak...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

The Level Sets aren't even the best in terms of color. Blacks are way too crushed and it gives it an overall darker look. If you're going to color correct the show, you need multiple sources from which to cull color information e.g. original broadcasts, Kai, the old single DVDs, and of course the Dr...

And really, just by removing the colour cast from the Dragon Boxes, you'll get something that looks pretty nice.

I'm not talking about those things. Now for my question. I was looking for the special features on this se...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

You really need to consider a range of sources that include the cels as well as the Kai palette and original broadcast recordings. There is no definitive color source out there yet for us to reference the entirety of the series.

Re: A couple questions about Funimation releases

The intended aspect ratio on the movies is actually not 4:3 but 1.85 widescreen. Episode of Bardock and History of Trunks were shown in theaters? I thought they were just TV specials, where the proper aspect ratio would be 4:3, since they would've been viewed on a television, rather than a cinema s...

The intended aspect ratio on the movies is actually not 4:3 but 1.85 widescreen. The movies may have been animated in 4:3, but they were animated with the intended ratio in mind.
