Re: On the subject of missing insert songs in Funimation's dub

While bad audio/visual masters and a lack of care on the original animation company's part were often reasons for missing insert songs back in "the day," in this day and age, any modern anime made that doesn't have a song in a dub is a licensing issue 99% of the time. That's why, for example, "Fly M...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

Also, has there been any studies to prove this? I'm not familiar with Portuguese viewing habits, but I'm sure that there are plenty of Portuguese who like to enjoy foreign content such as anime dubbed just like English speakers. Again, it's not a replacement for the original version, but a suppleme...

Re: On the subject of missing insert songs in Funimation's dub

Another important part of the equation to keep in mind here is that Toei doesn't care about the show... that ...much. To elaborate, I certainly don't mean that Toei doesn't care about the quality of the show at all. Rather, I mean that they don't think of the show as being as important as people in ...

Re: On the subject of missing insert songs in Funimation's dub

No one knows for sure, but chances are it's either a money thing or a "the audio masters that Toei gave FUNimation just didn't have those songs on them"-thing. Neither would surprise me, but my inclination is that it's the latter. The reason I say that is because FUNimation's dub is not the only dub...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

I know virtually nothing about video editing, so I offer my apologies in advance if this is a stupid question with an obvious answer. That said, how labor-intensive is it to dim and ghost footage as opposed to cutting down the frame rate? I'm essentially trying to understand if ghosting and dimming...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

For what it's worth, I don't really agree with this assessment. Japan has to adhere to those standards too, and Fuji TV dealt with this like any other channel does: dimming and ghosting. It looks significantly better than absolutely gutting the frame rate down to single digits. Here's how Fuji hand...

Re: A dub before Harmony Gold?

The real tragedy isn't that this might not exist, it's that if it does exist, there's no way it ever will be released. Funi just don't do releases of the sort that would have this, and no one else puts out their own, independent English releases of the show. Worse still, even if the masters still e...

Re: A dub before Harmony Gold?

Frontier's dub of Dragon Ball was never released, so it's probably lost to time. Toei also doesn't have a particularly good track record of preserving things. Exactly. Toei is unfortunately not even good at preserving the original Japanese broadcast audio of their own shows. What a pity...it would ...

I don't see why they would cancel the con just because of the Vic shit. That makes no sense.
Unless said Vic s*** involved threats of violence (not necessarily from Vic, but from other would-be con-goers). Sadly, I could see that being the case.
