Regardless of what anyone else has said so far, I should be receiving my dragon box tomorrow, according to shipping information. I will provide pictures if no one else is able to do so by that point. Lawl @ anyone who didn't order through right stuff.

Some Super Saiyan soda or something. Fuck, I don't know. ...

To be honest, anything edible and DBZ-related is all I could ever wish for. I literally dream about DBZ-themed Gushers. Goku could be the yellow one, Frieza could be the purple one, etc.

'Kay, now that's out of the way let me get to the bad stuff-- everything else. Maybe I'm missing something. The controls on this demo are horrendous (Playing on 360). I've play...

http://www.giantbomb.com/quick-look-dragon-ball-revenge-of-king-piccolo/17-1532/ Giant Bomb has posted their "Quick Look" video for Revenge of King Piccolo. It runs for about 30 minutes and is quite humorous (as you would typically expect from the Giant Bomb crew). Please be advised, however, that t...

This is fantastic news. Not only are they getting rid of that horrendous English soundtrack, but this also means that there will be more space to ensure that the video quality is up to par.

What does concern me is the 5.1 track. That will take up an awful lot of space, won't it?

Everyone uses this technique. Perhaps Goku was just referring to Vegeta's fighting style rather than that one specific (insignificant) move.

Well, if it ends up looking like the orange bricks, just uncropped, then it sort of becomes pointless.
Yellow box, bro. AND it includes a cool quote. How can you pass up that opportunity to buy the same product yet again?

I once read that Frank Miller, who once wrote some Batman comics some years ago, had a son, and his son had a friend who knew a guy that was related to someone that came from Japan and was an animator on the Dragonball series.

What a coincidence, eh?

My only question is to whether or not they will be dropping the JP-track bitrate down to their standard (read: shitty) 96kbps quality. It was 396kbps on the original DBox, no?

This is make or break for me.

The OP brought up the topic of the horrible, low-res, barely-translated flipped scanlations.

Nothing is ...

I'd love to meet other Dragonball fans in real life-- the first thing I would do is troll everyone by starting a heated debate about Buu's different forms and accompanying power levels. Then I would talk about the merits of Dragonball: Evolution. :lol:

I'd probably do it and do what I did with Z. I had 2 DVD players in my living room (long story behind that), so I put in the Season Sets in one DVD player with surround sound and turned that on. At the same time I put in a Full Screen DVD into the other DVD player. I'd sync them up to play at the s...

(Shitty)RealMedia clips on DBZ fansites during the late '90's. Mostly of the movies.

I thought the music was cool and retro. It had an edge to it that the US version did not.

Wasn't Dragonball Z TOEI's number one show for almost its entire run? You mean to suggest that they just discarded those magnetic master audio tapes, as if they were trash?
