Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

You will also probably find that the Season DVDs are even easier to do this with, as the surround mix was more simple, so the centre track is much more like an isolated voices track, and the surround channels are much more like an isolated music track, with effects generally floating between the ce...

Re: Would Level Sets be more sucessfull if Funimation wait more?

That's not what I wrote at all. You think they were wrong to not bring back the level sets. There's no way they don't lose money with that release. It's not like they pulled those sets to be dicks. They overestimated the demand and underestimated the cost. If a business can't do something cost effe...

Re: Dragon Ball Full Color Manga

Damn. At this rate, it would be quicker for me -- despite having about an hour a day to do this -- to scan the Japanese color manga in, scan in Viz's manga, and copy and paste every piece of dialog onto the Japanese manga for myself to have a nice digital version. Now, I'd bet it already exists, bu...

http://www.framecompare.com/image-compare/screenshotcomparison/J1JECNNU This is the comparison that got me. Look at how the DNR has DESTROYED the lineart on Jeice's glove on the right. In fact at some point the filter blurs the lineart and the shading together at the wrist? Bloody terrible. I know K...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Hopefully the entire cast would not be Asian. I think a Caucasian Buruma would be appropriate, along with the other urban peoples being a mix of White folks and other races. I hope they include animal-people as well. This is very important I feel. It's easy to forget, but the Dragon World version o...

Re: Dragon Ball Full Color Manga

This is a major bump (2 years inactive). I realized today that the entire Z color manga has already been published in Spanish (the entire Cell and Buu arcs). This got me asking: why hasn't this been translated into English yet? Is there some legal reason. Is Viz waiting for better timing (a future ...

Re: Looking for a high-res Blue Brick scan

I have the set but I'm on holiday in the US right now and won't be back home until the end of December. I can easily get a super high-resolution scan but you'll have to remind me later!

Yeah no, the full-color versions are still Japan-only. I'm not sure if the Viz release has even finished the Freeza arc.
I can confirm that it got to the end of that arc. Final panel is Gohan and Krillin rushing off after sensing Mecha Frieza.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

We're all aware of how the episodes look and I'm 99% sure no one's going to change their perception of this set because the opening looks decent. People's opinion of this set were made up before it even came out (which is fine). I think the concern is more about some fanboy taking that picture and ...

This is a dumb question, but could anyone post some pictures of the Sleeves of Doom? I've read lots about them but I don't even know what they look like or visually why they're such a bad idea.

The frame wasn't anything like that in the raw, I guarantee you. This is all Funi's shitty filtering. I agree with PremiumSalt 100%.
Yeah. I suspect that the frame was good, but for this section the actual scanning bit was done out of focus and they didn't bother to fix it.

the Dragon Ball fandom has an ability like no other to just roll over and take this shit, even when a better alternative is dangled right in front of our faces, on a blog post explaining why Funi chose to, yet again, do an unbelievably shitty release of our favourite show, so...

Re: Would Level Sets be more sucessfull if Funimation wait more?

Agreed. Price aside, the big killer for the Level Sets was the fact that it came out so close to Kai, itself an HD release of Z. I'm not sure how that happened, but I suspect it was a lack of communication between Funimation and Toei so that the former didn't know what the latter was doing. Kai had...
