Re: Why did FUNi use different instrumental for their DB and DBGT covers?

If you look at the Dragon Box GT extras, you can see that the instrumental of the GT opening and first ending included is pretty low quality, significantly worse than the Japanese track. So that's probably why they re-recorded the songs.

Re: Dragon Ball and Knights of The Zodiac (No not Saint Seiya)

Actually, all of Saint Seiya's been released (subtitled-only) by New Video. So you CAN watch the whole series subtitled if you want to.

Re: Anyone else annoyed at Crunchyroll's subs?

The translator probably doesn't know squat about FUNi's dub and was just given a laundry list of dub terms to use. Anything that the dub didn't translate probably wasn't on said laundry list and thus the translator had to figure out on his own... I'm glad that for the most part, the other language s...

The most literal, grammar-breaking translation of the original French is "I should use the Kaiôken level 10 !..." He's definitely not using it yet.

The fanboy worship the Falcouner score gets by American DBZ fans especially its dude bro section. Seriously it sounds like ass.

Re: Full frame movies

Centre-cropping a DVD on a TV would look terrible, no doubts about that. We're literally talking about a paltry 720x360 worth of resolution left here. However, when talking about a Blu-ray, cropping a 1440x1080 image to 16:9 still leaves you with a very comfortable 1440x810.

It's from champagne (which is pronounced shampañe), so yeah.

Also, re: Gohan's insult to Nappa, the original was "Your mother's belly button sticks out", for whatever that's worth.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Salagir also said he considers First form Fireza to only be 53,000 so maybe 1st form isn't quite 1 million and Goku is using a kaio-ken higher than x10. I don't think he ever stated that. People just took things out of context or made them up completely (as usual...). What he said was that when he ...

Well, some sound effects in Star Wars are classics too, like the lightsaber sound effects and Vader's breathing.

Just a nitpick here: it's actually not bad quality at all, it's just ridiculously off-colour.

The second French movie boxset (the first one was widescreen and used awful laserdisc masters) has a really nice remastered 4:3 transfer that's miles better than FUNimation's old singles. It only has DBZ movies 7 through 13 though (and the Trunks special, but that's 4:3 even on the Dragon Boxes, so ...

Re: If Dragonball Z came back on TV would Bruce Faulconer Music come back?

Also, don't they have some agreement in place where they have to pay Faulconer royalties every time his score is played on TV? So they'd probably go with the Kikuchi score if only to get around that.

Re: What's so bad about 'Bulla?'

I feel I need to bring this up... FUNimation didn't invent the name Bulla. The Portuguese dub of GT, done way back in 1998, used Bulla (and in one instance even mispronounced it as Bulula). This leads me to suspect this name spelling came from a Toei provided English script and FUNi just didn't que...
