Re: Original Dragon Ball anime to be released on Blu Ray in Spain

Pretty shitty. Much better to watch the Dragon Boxes. Ah yes the things that most of us don’t have access to in a legal way! Nor do most people have the patience or knowledge to add subs to foreign releases. And your point is? Anyone here who doesn't live in Spain and speak Spanish fluently will fi...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

But Abridged is a misnomer. It's not Dragon Ball. I don't care how much they don't want to make the commitment. Watching a parody isn't the same as watching the series. I also fundamentally disagree with people skipping ahead to DBZ unless there was no other way, like in the 90s. Now there's no exc...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I feel like Super’s problem, from what I’ve observed, is that it’s trying so damn to cater to different audiences. There’s the whole pressure to at least give the illusion it’s a faithful dub so the music is kept and the Japanese episode titles are more or less translated ala Kai. And Chris Ayres a...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I got the original, 4:3, Funimation, DVD release of "The Bardock Special" so I can finally watch it with proper subtitles What's wrong with the FUNi blu ray subtitles? It's not the subtitles that's the issue with the Double Feature BD and DVD release of Bardock (and History of Trunks) but rather th...

Re: In retrospect, was the (US) Dragon Box a 'monkey paw' release?

Yes , I find the Season 3 english dub on the remastered sets with the Japanese music and the re-dubbed parts to be passable. And just to be clear I do agree with you that restoring the Japanese music did go a long way in making the dub more listenable. It’s still really bad but the power of Kikuchi...

Re: Saban Funi "Battle Stars" Censorship

I don't see the censors looking quite that deeply into things when making decisions. I mean...this is the same dub with oddities like Chi Chi saying “I’m gonna worry myself to death” (as in the expression) and then Saban made them redub it for re-airings to “All this worrying is going to give me wr...

Re: Saban Funi "Battle Stars" Censorship

Still boggles my mind that they still let that vicious gut punch Vegeta gave Gohan in the Namek arc get by. No hits to the face EVER, but a grown man beating a child? That's okay. Sort of, he actually slams Gohan with his knee but it's about the same as a gut punch. I'm honestly surprised that was ...

Absolutely. There's a difference between artistic merit and historical importance. Correct. Funnily enough, Funimation’s old work on the Dragon Ball franchise is neither. Hah. If only that were true. Funimation's work on Dragon Ball has been highly influential across the globe. Ignoring GT Final Bo...

Are we really going to regard a crappy dub as a piece of history? Absolutely. There's a difference between artistic merit and historical importance. Correct. Funnily enough, Funimation’s old work on the Dragon Ball franchise is neither. Perhaps this is just my time lurking around the Lost Media com...

Re: In retrospect, was the (US) Dragon Box a 'monkey paw' release?

I definitely agree with the part of your long winded post that the OG in house DBZ dub is a bottom of the barrel, low rung load of garbage that should just go away. It's an outdated and obsolete relic from FUNi's early years when they were a much smaller company with not much money or recognition c...

If nothing else, the original broadcast Funi Z dub, in all its forms (uncut, edited as seen on Toonami, edited as seen on YTV, even including how that one Australian network preserved the eyecatches... including some unique ones at the very beginning of the dub) should be fully preserved as a histo...

Is the Funi dub shit? Absolutely! Is it worth seeing over the original Japanese or a dub of sufficiently high quality? Certainly not. Is it worth preserving? I think so. And this right here is the crux of where we disagree. I 1000% agree with your answers to the first two questions there, and have ...

I stand by that it's at this point still the best release from FUNimation which wasn't done by them personally, and looking through the threads here from now just over a decade ago (Holy crap, it's been ten years already!!!) the announcement by FUNi of licensing the Dragon Box masters for release he...
