Re: Pioneer Laserdisc question

(..) nothing "essential" seemed lost with a center crop You can pick any part of the picture and call it non-essential. What if I consider everything essential? What if I consider half of the picture non-essential? This is not an argument. Yeah, but PCM is lossless. 448kbps AC3 is lossy. So the qua...

Re: Pioneer Laserdisc question

The fact that the "definitive" release is cropped into widescreen cements the idea that these full-frame movies should be exclusively viewed in 16:9, despite there definitely being detail missing in the animation of the theatrical format. http://upload.dbnao.net/files/9611_1491048841_dbz1_3x2.png B...

Re: Pioneer Laserdisc question

Here is a comparison between the 16:9 Dragon Box and the 4:3 FunimationNow transfers of Curse of the Blood Rubies. Note that the images aren't perfect representations of their source material, but should get the point across at least: By “other movies”, I meant newer ones than the eary ones. First ...

Dragon Ball Z Movie 6 Drama Cassette (激突!!100億パワーの戦士たち ドラマ編)

Does anybody know the original catalog number of this cassette? The internet does not know about its existence. The number probably starts with “COTC”. For example, catalog number of Drama Cassette of DBZ Movie 4 is COTC-1609. Maybe your internets contain more websites? 8) My friend had an internet ...

Re: Pioneer Laserdisc question

The thing is, they were animated in 4:3, but were meant to be seen in 16:9. If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself. We need to make MythBusters episode about Dragon Ball movies. We definitely do. But seriously - we need to kick out al...

Re: Do you see them giving the original DB the Kai treatment?

If you want me to be honest - I am doing everything what's in my power to prevent Kaifying anything Dragon Ball-related. The original voice acting, music, episode count and overall quality of the original series is the BEST what we can ever get. As long as this version will not receive decent HD rel...

Re: Can we convince FUNimation to make more Level sets?

Can somebody explain to me in a nutshell how Dragon Ball audio was recorded for DB/Z/GT/Movies? It cannot be explained in a nutshell :P It would be the best, if you could ask more detailed question. Or a couple of questions. I've heard that if I happen to put the Movies audio (from the Dragon Boxes...

Not so long ago, I become crazy about icons. I am making them on massive scale.

CD with Japanese filenames + PDFs with Kanji (DB related :P)

Does anybody know what filesystem should I use to burn CD with Japanese filenames, to make it fully compatible with Japanese operating systems/computers? Will Joliet with Unicode character set work? Will PDF with Kanji/Kana characters made with OpenOffice be properly displayed on Japanese computers?...

Re: Your opinion on skipping/not watching Dragon Ball

I wonder if it's because as said, western fans view Dragonball as a "prequel" for some reason, and not the start of the series. Keep in mind the Star Wars prequels started in 1999, and that's when DBZ's ratings were in its prime (Season 3 started in 1999 with the FUNi dub, and then by 2000-2002 it ...
