Re: Dragon Ball Z still airs on Japanese TV, doesn't it?

Original Dragon Ball is the DBox master. Dragon Ball GT is the DBox master with broadcast audio slapped on. Dragon Ball Z (Father of Goku aside) uses the old 1" rerun broadcast tapes. You see more image on the sides, but the quality is somewhat worse (though still better than the likes of Funi's Se...

Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

Now that Funimation has revealed more new shots and caps from their new blu-ray, I think it would be interesting to see comparisons between the: - Ocean Dub/Pioneer home video releases - Funimation in-house singles - Ultimate Uncut Edition - Orange Bricks - Dragon Ball Kai - Level Sets - 2014 Funi B...

Re: Dragon Ball Z still airs on Japanese TV, doesn't it?

What quality does DBZ air on in Japan? Dragon Boxes?

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I think it would be best if we all respectfully tagged @Funimation on Twitter and respectfully voiced our criticisms about our issues with this blu-ray set. It would also be beneficial to also respectfully release our criticisms about our issues with the set here: https://www.funimation.com/contact-...

Re: Rank EVERY Dragon Ball Animated Theatrical Film

In my opinion, Super Broly should be at the top of every list. Meanwhile, it is objectively true that Broly 2nd Coming should be at the bottom of every list. Stop. There’s no objective fact on how much you like or dislike a movie. I’m not the biggest fan of Second Coming either but it’s “not object...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Guys, I think its pretty expected that we're going to hit 3000. Even if it took months, we'd still hit 3000 eventually.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I am actually fine with Funimation's cropping as of right now. Based on the blog, it seems they are doing the cropping manually, and some shots look "okay." My issue is their horrible DNR and color correction. Lines are looking blurry, and the colors are so freaking saturated. If Funi listens to the...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If that actually was the case, couldn't they have asked Toei to send them remastered footage? The same way they remastered the Bardock special a few months ago? Maybe. Maybe Toei wouldn't let them, or it was cheaper for Funi to use their own internal master of the show than to additionally pay Toei...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Ok, now I understand. But as for the blu-rays, why couldn't Funi just go re-do/finish up the Level Sets visuals? Dunno. If I were to guess though, it's sheer time. Those were done a decade ago, and any number of things could have changed since then, including the programs and machines they use to r...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

My tweets to Funimation . Keep in mind, I NEVER do this sort of thing. Ugh, why can't Funi just give us a color corrected Dragon Box or just use and continue the Level Sets footage? Why is it so hard for Funimation to get things right with this franchise sometimes? Because as I mentioned before, th...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

How can they go from normal skin colored SSJ Gohan to pink skin SSJ Gohan. Who the fuck does that? The Dragon Boxes. But Toei doesn't exactly know what they're doing either. That has to do with the fact that the 16mm film prints had degraded slightly by the time Toei and Pony Canyon dug them out to...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Hm, in those shots it looks like the Black Bricks are more cropped. Odd. Did the original 16mm tapes get even more damaged as the years passed?

And to those complaining about the cropping, I think y'all should read this: "For this particular project, creating a true 4:3 image for the entire series is a very manual process.

Well, THIS is a pleasant surprise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZrP640wHXg&feature=em-uploademail Clearly, they sourced some of the level footage & probably some other footage, but at least it's BETETR than the original trailer & actually instills confidence.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

No, the dragon box belongs to Toei, Funimation has no right to alter anything on the product. Just like you can't change the melody of a covered song that you have brought. Can't Toei send them a color-correct/remaster? Toei already remastered the Bardock special in good quality, so what's going on...
