Re: Your opinion on skipping/not watching Dragon Ball

Of course it's important but you don't have to know everything about to get what's going on between them. If we would go very far with that logic, we would end up saying that you don't need to watch Dragon Ball Z at all. The chances of the millions of DBZ fans having seen it from episode 1 back in ...

Re: Your opinion on skipping/not watching Dragon Ball

Z's 151st episodes is in the middle of an already ongoing arc. Although the Saiyan arc is the 7th arc of the overall story, it's not continuing any major plotline from the previous arcs but instead is somehwat of a fresh start for new readers/viewers. I'm not saying you shouldn't watch the original...

Re: Your opinion on skipping/not watching Dragon Ball

To me, not watching DB is EXACTLY the same as skipping the first 150 episodes of Z, and starting with episode 151. No difference at all. The change of the logo and OP/ED animations/songs has nothing to do with the story. It's terrifying to acknowledge how decisions of some small group of people infl...

Re: DragonBall Symphonic Adventure (2017)

As unlikely as it is for something like this to happen here in the US, it would be my dream to go to this. Kikuchi's music is one of the best parts of Dragon Ball to me. Imagine if FUNimation would make different decisions, chances would be much bigger... http://www.jasrac.or.jp/ejhp/about/award33....

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

They heard our desires back when they held a poll to see which aspect ratio was wanted for the season blurays and they went with 16:9 even though 4:3 won. Of course they heard our desires. Those were 16:9 digitally garbagized, ( far from ) modern-looking version. They didn't ignore the poll because...

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

I think that we cannot convince FUNimation to spend heavy money on this kind of release. There is no market for it. We would need to create the market and inform FUNimation about our desires, but nobody is interested in doing this (excluding me, Robo and sangofe :P (at least, they are the ones I kno...

Re: Full frame movies

That's an outrageous false equivalence. I'm not arguing in favor of ensuring we maintain 16:9 movie releases because I simply like having things in widescreen. I would certainly never argue for maintaining 16:9 releases of the original three TV series, for example. I'm arguing in favor of maintaini...

But this wasn't caused just by DVNR. It's a combination of many factors like blacks/whites balance, contrast tweaking etc.
