Re: Full frame movies

I take the perspective that I'm lucky to be able to watch the movies the way they were presented on the big screen with the full cinematic experience thanks to my widescreen TV. You mean...4:3? 8) We got 4:3 screenings. Why 16:9 cinematic experience with center crop is better than 4:3 experience wi...

Dragon Ball Episode 1: Voice of Piranha (ピラニア【?】)

Does anybody know who voiced Piranha, which appeared in the first episode of Dragon Ball? (I am talking about the original version, of course)

Re: Full frame movies

Largely centered, but not entirely. All the stuff I saw when I prepared some comparison screenshots from various movies was center-cropped. Exact middle of the frame. You're also losing resolution with the zoom feature, and no one wants that. If somebody does not care for 20% of the picture, they w...

If you have old TV, normal zoom should be enough - widescreen releases of the movies are always center-cropped.

Re: Full frame movies

However, since the movies were animated in open-matte 4:3, with the intent or at least expectation of being cropped, there's nothing lost in the process with this framing. You call this nothing: [spoiler] http://upload.dbnao.net/files/9611_1491048701_db3_1x2.png ( let's not know what they are stand...

Re: Bruce Faulconer or Shunsuke Kikuchi ?

I am a purist, so I always advocate for getting familiar with stuff in its first, original version. Chronology is also VERY important. Argumentation goes like this: It's Japanese show. It was written in Japan by Japanese person, who was born and raised in Japan. It's partially based on Japanese cult...

Re: What's the best way to introduce DragonBall to kids?

The best way to introduce Dragon Ball to kids is playing them the first episode in Japanese with subtitles. I was introduced to the show similar way when I was a kid. I was hooked since the first minutes so it must work. I am super grateful to our broadcasters for airing the show from the start to t...

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

What makes it more "accurate", per se? Dragon Ball originated from a manga without sound, and not only that, Kai uses a different OST and I wouldn't say that is any less "accurate". I think that in this case, the “ source material ” is Dragon Ball Z anime series. It was produced in Japan and scored...
