Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/04

Because the mass market would have eaten it up regardless, and some of us would have bought it in hopes of it funding the next better release. To keep getting out money. The Dragon Boxes were for a niche audience. They didn't have to give it to us.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/04

If they didn't feel sorry about the Orange Brick outrage, would they have given us the Dragon Boxes? Or would they have given us an incrementally better remaster to flip us the bird?

In other words, there ain't no Dragon Box at the end of the tunnel this time.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/04

How I'm reading it is that they're purposely putting out bad products now because they want money. Whereas before, they gave us the Dragon Boxes as an apology for the Orange Bricks.

I wouldn't blame him if that's the case. That orange brick extra was pretty much there to throw him under the bus.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Seasons" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 12/04

Maybe next we'll get video of a drunk Chris Sabat recalling stories from his voice sessions. In all seriousness, though, I'd be curious to hear someone talk about the replacement score. But anyone who was actually involved in the process is probably long gone at this point. Or how about a new remast...

Justin Cook's "Headshot Collection" featurette. They're scraping the bottom of the barrel with that one.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

They took it down the same day it was put up, well if I read it right. So I was thinking did they upload the wrong one or what? It was officially reuploaded a few weeks ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Byo4rgMHUM4 Yeah, really. Piccolo's brighter in the comparison, but much less so than the fir...

Then they might as well have kept in the stuff about Bardock being a brilliant scientist.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

It's kinda funny that Dragon Ball is pretty much FUNimation's biggest title, but when they go back and redub stuff (like the first two Z "seasons" and Curse of the Blood Rubies), instead of readapting the script from scratch, they use the inaccurate version as the base. They can't even be bothered t...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

There's honestly no reason for FUNimation to release a new 16:9 remaster unless it's using the Japanese broadcast audio. But I guess they gotta make back their Sgt. Frog and Level E money.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

This "why aren't we getting a Blu-ray 4:3 release that is remastered". It would be a lose-lose, people would be complaining that the first level remaster was better and that this is just the orange bricks in 4:3 or it would be the 16:9 like it is now. At least then it would be two possible improvem...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

People complained about the Orange Bricks having oversaturated colors, but these are even worse in that department. I guess all this time, the saturation just wasn't intense enough on those bricks. I'm most excited to own a home release of the series with the Faulconer dub (assuming they don't cance...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

I don't blame FUNimation for cancelling the Level sets, but just because those weren't viable doesn't mean this new release is okay. I understand that FUNimation's masters are of low quality, but I really wish they'd stop with the redundant releases.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

Casual fans were never going to pick it up despite the marketing. Too pricey compared to the orange bricks. The Kanzenshuu community is also a small one. We couldn't have sustained the release, even if we were fearing its cancellation.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

But most fans of the series would have been buying what we had been getting prior to the Level sets, because why would FUNimation give us something better?

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

Well, all these releases were coming out within a few years of each other. It's not unreasonable to think people would be picking that stuff up over time. Hell, I was pissed when the Dragon Boxes were announced because I blew all my money on the orange bricks. Then when I waited for the prices to dr...

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

I'm not even sure how much of an exaggeration that was, if at all. By my count, the orange bricks, dragon boxes, movies, TV specials, blue bricks, green bricks, and Kai would be at least in the realm of $800. The Level sets probably would have taken that over one grand.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

I think it's basically a last ditch effort to milk Dragon Ball Z. If it doesn't sell at dirt cheap prices, then they can't really milk it anymore.

Re: Dragon Ball Z "Season One" Coming To Blu-ray (Updated 11

The Orange Bricks weren't without fault, but they were the first consistent Z release and it had the English audio track with replacement music, which is how most of the US fanbase wants to experience it. This release, on the other hand, isn't bringing anything new to the table.
