This thread is fucking long. I give up trying to follow this shit.

Can someone PM me when a proper JP/US Dragonbox comparison has been compiled?

I'm not diving through the 40-ish pages I haven't been keeping tabs on. The point of topic is changing every 5 or so posts. This is ridiculous.

Anyone with smarts would just import the dragon box z slims from funimation for a fraction of the price, and just wait it out for the rest of the series. I say we have them all by 2012.

@brad redfield: That can't be right. I specifically went to Gamestop today to check on this supposed sale, and it was a no go. The game itself is stickered at 49.99, but i was only going to bite at the rumored 39.99 price point. I asked the individual to please check the price in the computer, and i...

When was it confirmed that the OVA won't be on the boxset?

People are asking the same information over and over again, while the same answers are being stated over and over again. This thread is moving too fast, and people are plain and simple not taking the time to READ before posting. There needs to be a sticky topic ASAP, or the OP needs to be updated wi...

Another annoyance I've found-- If you want to skip past the episode recaps, be prepared to fast forward. Using chapter skip during the OP brings you to the episode recap. Using chapter skip during the recap brings you to the eye catcher, and not the beginning of the actual episode. I can already tel...

Did anyone mentioned there are romanized lyrics for the opening and ending songs? Finally, I can pronounce these words correctly after all these years of just matching up sounds as close as possible! What else.... The font used for the subtitles is different from previous releases. No clue why, but ...

Wait, what? No marathon feature? That's slightly disappointing. Only slightly, though. Also, the menus being static is kind of lame, too, but I'm not gonna really spend much time on the menu since it's auto-set to Japanese with subs. Sorry, I would have mentioned it earlier but I just assumed haseo...

Didn't the original dragon box have background animations that played during the menus? Also, there was a short intro animation as well, no? Forgive me if it has already been mentioned, but after the opening funi previews, the american dbox drops right into a static menu with some jp-background musi...

Just out of curiosity, how many people tune into the podcast regularly? Is there a way to track those numbers? Surely, this group must represent the "hardcore" fanbase that funi is looking toward. I just really hope I'm wrong about the small userbase, and that there are tens of thousands of unnamed ...

I truly hope this release (assuming it's all that it seems to be cracked up to be, I can't help but wait until I get it myself to give it full praise) breaks some sales records for FUNi, giving them positive reinforcement for doing a proper release. -Corey I'm actually worried that the opposite is ...

Will do, though I must say that I have already sold off my season sets so I have nothing to directly compare it to (unless I am going off of memory).

Did someone mention that there is a way to check the KBPS stream while viewing on a Playstation 3? By pressing select or something like that... ?

My Dragon Box has arrived.

Pictures forthcoming. Any requests?

Screen caps are an impossibility at this time; though I can take pictures of it playing on my television set (lol).

Good shit.

For the anime? I would have to say Buu saga. Often times during this arc the anime's art quality exceeded the original manga, which was beginning to look rather rushed (and occasionally flat-out shitty). They also added a lot of filler which actually ADDED to the experience for a change. There were ...

Op, would it be possible for you to rip a small clip from any episode? I would like to be able to determine the exact audio quality.

Can it be confirmed that the jp track is only 96kbps in quality? If so, that is a fairly significant and disappointing loss...
