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

The season two teaser looked moderately decent compared to what I've seen of season one thus far.

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

The new sets are better for being consistently terrible. Oh, what a world we live in.

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

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #861 in Movies & TV. To put that into perspective, Miyazaki's widely popular Spirited Away is #586 in Movies & TV. For Japanese animation, and a series that has been milked this much, it's doing well.

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

Nah, it would just mean that a select group of people thinks they're horrible. But, really, people should not be deciding whether or not to purchase a remaster entirely on the Amazon user rating. Even reviews should be taken with a grain of salt.

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

I've just been looking on the Amazon page again, and it's really sad to see this with a significantly lower score than the orange bricks, when it's actually a better product. It may be better if the viewer's sole interest is in the English dub. The low quality Japanese track meshes even more poorly...

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

That combination of Japanese audio and the new remaster is so jarring. It doesn't fit at all.

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

Well, no, but I don't think it's accurate to say that people are upset here only because of cropping. This footage, imo, would still look terrible in its original aspect ratio.

That sorta thing is inevitable in a cropped release.

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

The cropping is a problem, but let's not pretend that the remastering isn't divisive. If these were basically widescreen Level sets with the blemishes kept in the footage, at least it would have been a massive improvement over the Orange Bricks. This new release isn't necessarily better, it's just d...

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

Regardless, it's definitely selling. So, again, it's the vocal minority who is upset. Even if the majority of the people polled voted for a 4:3 aspect ratio, it's hardly representative of the entire fanbase. If the average Z fan actually wanted an uncropped release, then these Blu-ray seasons would ...

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

Well, the fact that this release is selling well (just look at season one's rank on the Amazon best sellers) tells us that they are indeed doing what the fans want. It's just not what we want.

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

Unfortunately, if this release were to bomb, that would likely kill any chance of getting more Dragon Box releases. But it doesn't seem like that's happening, anyway.

We certainly won't get anything better than the Dragon Box unless Toei does do that HD remaster.

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

Well, if a Dragon Box rerelease isn't outside the realm of possibilities (despite there being no plans for it), that's what I'll be holding out for.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/20

Maybe for the Japanese TV-version it was modernised but outside of it, they just gave us a blurred, not very crisp and for an HD remaster this leaves a lot to please. So, your defense for this release is basically, "Well, Toei's not perfect either!" despite it being brought up time and time again t...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/20

Here's hoping this release makes enough money for FUNimation to rerelease the Dragon Box Z sets upscaled on Blu-ray (apologies to the people who pick this up without knowing any better). The first Blu-ray season is #28 on Amazon's best seller list for anime Blu-rays. I knew the loud minority would h...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/20

I'd rather see Kai on Toonami than Z. At least then people unfamiliar with the series might get a decent first impression (when it comes to voice acting, anyway).

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/20

The average DBZ fan's only frame of reference would likely be the Orange Bricks, so they'll happily accept the new remaster. FUNimation does this because they can get away with it, and if milking the franchise still pulls in money, they're going to do it.
