Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Side note - I thought it was pretty neat that they repurposed the shelved Trunks themes into Goku's themes instead. Yeah, that was good in Goku's Cell Games sacrifice. I still would have liked to have had the unused Trunks tracks in their original place. That freaking Trunks promotional video had m...

Re: Orange Bricks - Why the Bleaching?

I just think it was a fault of the automated process. I guess some episodes of seasons twp and three had less dark masters, so the settings they had it one resulted in a few episodes being over-brightened, blowing out some skin tones. At the very least, much of OB season two looks pretty decent, and...

Re: What would be your ideal Dragon Ball home release?

All I really want is a Blu-ray (and DVD since I still use that on my PC since BDs are super annoying to get working on it) with FUNimation's raw 4:3 masters, the original broadcast dub (but the Season Set redub with Sabat replacing Mignogna is fine by me for those Ultimate Uncut dub episodes), and o...

It's time to accept Kikuchi as your lord and saviour kid. Too late, OP’s already gone. Yeah I noticed that, their profile says "not banned" though clicking on it does not turn up anything. In all my years here, I don't think I've ever seen an account completely zapped like that! I usually check a b...

Re: Level 1.1 back...in stock?

Bought one for curiosity's sake. Guess you'll find out if it's a bootleg or not! Well, it's directly from Amazon, so it's highly doubtful, but in the past I have ordered items that were swapped by the buyer and returned, which Amazon then resold as new (a GPU which was swapped with a very old 3DFX ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

They're fangirls/fanboys. They're delusional. :roll: Vic can do no wrong to these people. From what I can see, it's not even his fanbase, more so it's the right wingers who caught wind of the story and defend him, because they always love an "alpha" male who will "put women and SJWs in their place".

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Here's my take: there is nothing wrong with synth based music. Faulconer team's instruments were made primarily of a sample based synthesizer, and many of the samples sound like generic MIDI samples. The woodwind samples that the team used in particular was very cheap and cheesy sounding. One of the...

Re: Team Faulconer - Singles vs Orange Bricks

I definitely seem to remember someone posting a short YouTube clip a few years ago of Vic's Buter in the UUE broadcast. I remember it being basically the same as his Kai performance.

Re: SSGSS Evolution is a Disgustingly Bad, Ugly Transformation

My problem is that with Yamamuro's current style, and it makes Vegeta in that form just looks like a freaking troll. That Z design sheet is so sharp, dynamic, and the muscles have great proportions and depth. The new art just looks like a beef monster who's hunched over and it's very flat. In the sh...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

As much as I hate FUNimation, HG still having the license would probably mean no uncut Japanese version on home release in North America, ever, and even further changed dub names would be prevalent today. "Who's Son Goku? "The Japanese name for Zero!" "You call him Goku? You're such a weeb. Zero is ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

God... All Toei needs to do is take those masters, do some color correction and release them on Blu-ray (SD, no smeary upscaling, and more episodes per disc), and have FUNimation license those. Having the Dragon Boxes with proper colors and incredible compression would be super easy to do, and would...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I was going thu the special features and while most of them use the Season bluray footage the one with 18's voice actress actually uses Dragon Box and the quality (and encoding) is so much better than FUNi's Dragon Box DVD. I'll drop these two shots here if people want to compare them to the Japane...

Sorry for the bump. But May's Wafer Stickers got revealed.... They have now ommitted "Son"... What the actual f**k is going on?????????? It really makes no sense to me...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

From what you're saying it's not like the Shout Factory releases of the Japanese Transformers series that have the US names in them. And that's more from not confusing and TF fans not being too caring of the Japanese names. (Some will yell at you if you say "Convoy" instead of Optimus). One goofy e...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Personally I'll take stolen music over synth with the bass stripped out, haha. I'll give it one piece of credit though: it uses consistent themes just like Kikuchi did, which is more than what Yamamoto did. Kikuchi makes the most sense though, especially because he's the only composer who did the e...

I feel like we had this thread not too long ago...

Plus it fits the martial arts core of the series. There was a time I might h...
