Re: Dragon Box , Personal Verdict

It's just that you don't hear the English dub fans constantly trashing the Japanese version because they prefer one over the other.. it only tends to be the Japanese fans who complain.

No, but continuing to bad mouth something to people who enjoy the Dub dub is.

Re: Dragon Box , Personal Verdict

You do come off as kind of stuck up penguintruth in your posts, so I can understand him giving up.

Believing that you should only watch DBZ in Japanese (bad quality mono track btw), and disrespecting anyone who prefers to watch it in English is just childish and petty.

Re: Dragon Box , Personal Verdict

A standard lossy 2.0 track doesn't take up a lot of space. What they should have done is left off the English+Japanese Music track. If this set is for the 'Hard Core' fans, they probably don't watch it in English anyway, so having an English dub track that includes the Japanese music seems rather p...

Re: Dragon Box , Personal Verdict

One web page I read said they left it out as it would lower the bitrate of the video track. I find this bizarre, I believe they could have easily fit in a standard Dolby 2.0 track as well as the original Japanese Audio and English/Jap Music track. It only seems bizarre because you don't know about ...

Dragon Box , Personal Verdict

So I have finished watching Dragon Boxes 5,6 and 7 recently. You might have read my previous thread about tracking down episodes with the US Music, so you might want to skip over this if you have 'heard it all before'. While these are targeted to the 'Hard Core Dragon Ball Fans', I don't understand ...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I bought the 'Cell Games Starter Set' from an Amazon Marketplace seller, after they said "Please Note: This contains all 9 Cell Games DVDs, not the 2 as listed on Amazon". So it arrived today, with 9 DVDs, but only 6 are from the Cell Games, the other three are one GT DVD, an Edited Cooler movie, an...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 with US Music

I do have a Blu-Ray player, but the only problem with Option 1 is the price of Dragon Box 2, on Amazon Marketplace they want $US500+, and a quick look on Ebay shows it for $US130+. I think I will have to use the Orange Bricks for those episodes in between the Blu-ray and the start of the original Fu...

Got this in the mail today:

Vegeta Saga I: Ultimate Uncut Editions

All seven cases come with a reversible cover so you get no Australian ratings logos.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 with US Music

Hmmm I see. I have been using the Home Video Guide on this website, but it doesn't really list the edits in detail so I just wanted to ask. Thanks though.

I got the 'Vegeta Saga I - Ultimate Uncut Edition' box set in the mail today, which covers the first 21 episodes, in 4:3 with US music.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 with US Music

Hi all, Regarding the Ocean Dub, can anyone shed some more detail on what exactly (and how much) is edited out of their version? I'm not talking translations/dubbing, just content as in fights/violence. I found a local site that has the original 'Namek Saga Collection' DVD box set which has 9 DVDs i...

Yeah there are missing episodes, which is a damn shame! It seems when ever Funimation gets near those episodes, they just give up :(

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 with US Music

Figured as much lol. I'll keep tracking down the older DVDs then.. Shame a box set of the Frieza saga never came out in the US. It did in Australia and New Zealand, but none of the DVDs contained the Japanese track.. would be nice to have both just as an option.

Hi everyone, glad to have my account activated! Been visiting Daizenshuu EX (now Kenzenshuu) for a long long time, but only just signed up for the forum the other week! Ok, so I have started getting back into Dragon Ball Z! I have all the 'Orange Bricks' as they are called, the GT Bricks, and the Au...

Re: Why didn't the Orange Bricks look like this

I'm kind of disappointed with the 'Dragon Box' transfers, and I agree, the above screenshots look awesome. They haven't been totally boosted, but the colors are nice and bright compared to the faded Dragon Box release. I did this little comparison between the Orange Bricks and the Dragon Box, its so...
