Re: Animation Highlights of the Majin Vegeta and Goku Battle

When Vegeta had Goku bound and gave his speech, then Goku powered up and busted out. Freaking epic. I get goosebumps when I watch it. The animation was great as well.

Re: Your 'Dragon Ball Regrets'

I shouldn't tell it cause it might piss some people off, but my biggest regret was throwing my Dragon Box's 1,2,4, and 5 right in the trash can. :cry: I should have traded them here on the forum, all you guys deserved them more than me. Wuh..? :shock: Why, just why!? I don't get this at all. Was it...

The last time I told folks here where cheap DBox 2's could be found I got screwed over by a member who bought um' all up before I could get one...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

I also prefer the Blue Bricks because the Dragon Boxes for Dragon Ball have terrible colors, random overly bright episodes, and the one episode where the footage was framed too low, showing the beginning of the next frame on the bottom. This has convinced me to buy the Blue Bricks. I had hoped to w...

Re: What If Eiichiro Oda wrote Dragon Ball?

The lore of the Dragon Ball universe would've been greatly expanded upon if Oda were the author. We all love Dragon Ball because it's so carefree and doesn't take itself to seriously, but at the same time is epic and intriguing. This is because Toriyama really is a great mangaka and knew what he was...

Re: Watching Kai in English and watching DBZ subtitled

I'm looking forward to collecting and watching Kai in english straight through for the first time. I wouldn't care much to watch Kai in Japanese since I have the original for that, and like others have said the FUNi cast were eager to re-dub the show while the Japanese cast were old and done with it...

Re: What If Eiichiro Oda wrote Dragon Ball?

The art in Naruto has changed so much. The quality has dropped significantly and I agree some fights are difficult to nearly impossible to comprehend. Early One Piece has the rounded edges like early Dragon Ball, and slowly changes. By the time we get to Arabasta the change is obvious. Then it slowl...

Re: What If Eiichiro Oda wrote Dragon Ball?

One Piece is fantastic but Akira Toriyama makes Dragon Ball what it is. It wouldn't be the same otherwise, and I wouldn't have it any other way. By the way, I enjoy the critiquing of One Piece that is going on in this thread. It actually makes me happy to see Dragon Ball fans hate one One Piece, lol...

DragonBall Z on Blu-ray! ...again! Wait, it's not the same footage as what's used on the Level sets? Well, at least they kept it in fullscreen... what?! 16:9, are you serious? We're back to cropped shit? AND they look like upscaled orange bricks? FFFFFFFU- There, discussion brought back on topic. (...

Re: What happened in DB during your first year on Kanzenshuu

Dragon Boxes! They're actually the reason why I searched the web for some Dragon Ball info, and it led me to these awesome forums. The Dragon Box cancellation thread is the first I posted in. I waited until the 7th box was released before I bought them all. It was around that time I joined the forum...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/31

I like that comparison. Makes these new blu-rays look way too bright and cropped, like they are... The green sky and pink skin tone on the Dragon Boxes doesn't bother me at all, but after seeing the level set I see why so many people consider them a superior release in terms of video quality. Yea FU...

Re: How often do you rewatch the series?

Once a year I guess. In between my marathons I may occasionally watch a favorite episode or scene. The ocean dub movies are great to watch for a little something different. Good English DBZ right there.

It has the individual cases for seasons 1 and 2 in there.

I ordered it from Amazon. Next time I'm at Wal-Mart I'm gonna checked out how they package it. The only Dragon Ball video releases I see there these days is GT.
