Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

It's the same reason I ended up placing an order, not so much to fill space on the shelf but I just wanted a version on Blu-ray. I have the Dragon Boxes on DVD, now I want it on Blu-ray. I also happen to like the packaging, and I think the art book will have some good stuff in it. It's better than w...

Re: The Broli movie will use dub names in its subtitles, at Toei's request. Could this become the new "standard"?

After some time to mull it over I think I'll cancel the collector's edition order and just keep the UK steelbook. Yeah I'll have two steelbooks, but I'm a completionist and it looks like there were also UK collector's editions for Battle of Gods and Resurrection F, with RoF still readily available a...

Re: Vic Mignogna

This is my opinion of course but now that the Blu-ray is out and you can switch between the Japanese and the English versions at will, you can hear just how bad Vic Migogna's performance as Broli is compared to Bin Shimada. Obviously you could do this with the old movies, but all the focus right now...

Re: The Broli movie will use dub names in its subtitles, at Toei's request. Could this become the new "standard"?

The news Manga UK hinted at yesterday is an upgrade for all standard Blu-ray sets to a limited edition collector's set for the same price. If you have the standard Blu-ray (not the steelbook) preordered, you'll get upgraded automatically. If not, you can order it. Apparently it's a 'once it's gone ...

Re: Packaging: Orange Bricks AU/UK Vs. US

Manga UK packaging is definitely superior but I have to say, if I owned them on my shelf, having every set with episode numbers except for the first one would trigger the hell out of me.

I wonder what tomorrow’s news from Manga UK will be? I doubt they can make it region free and I don’t think it’ll be surprise extras that they got at the last minute (they’ve said their disc does not have any extras because they weren’t given any).

...could it be...the subs...!?

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

And, the crowning moment of awful of this release was the fact it was made limited edition. Making a release "Collectible" simply means anyone who wants to enjoy its contents but didn't have the money in the window of a few months it was out, or didn't know about it until months later, is utterly s...

In fact, it seems like they got Jason Douglas &/or Ian Sinclair to record stuff Vic must've sai...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Boy it’s sure going to be weird having two Broly steelbooks on my shelf now, one FUNi one Manga UK. If only you didn’t fuck it up as badly as you did, FUNimation. I did think about picking up the Japanese release too for the artbook, but it’s too damn expensive (over $105) to buy the same movie a th...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

FUNimation has the NEP clips because they were using them back in the early 2000s when DBZ was airing. I was only 9 or 10 but I specifically remember them being shown. You're talking about Funimation's "Next time on DRAGON BALL ZEEEEEEE!" previews, right? Were those even based on the Japanese NEPs?...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I don’t have Falcouner DBZ which is an occasional guilty nostalgia trip for me, and I don’t want to hunt down all the DVD singles (and the Trunks ones with the driving episode etc. are impossible to find anyway), so I guess there’s my reason for keeping it. I don’t want it in widescreen. Fuck it.

Re: English Movie Titles - TOEI Vs. FUNimation

I can understand why they changed the titles because they needed something that sounds more marketable. What really bothers me is when they not only don't display the proper title when you play the films in Japanese, but they straight up cover or replace the titles. I don't like pointless edits in ...

Well, that's some good news I suppose. I'm still just more concerned about the future of Dragon Ball home media than I am this one movie though. If this is going to be the new standard here, I'll be more than happy to continue importing from the UK now that I know I can do it. I'll finish out my FU...

Bad news.
