I love how the majority of in-house DBOX enthusiasts are basically avoiding this thread like the plague. The fact that you have irrefutable evidence of the original airing's superior audio must make them cry inside. In this instance, it is IMPOSSIBLE for the damage control police to come flooding in...

Or, you could save a lot of time and money and just keep the bricks. It's the same exact show aside from aspect ratio. And the quality of picture. But yeah, outside of the video quality, aspect ratio being correct, and coloring not being bleached, its the same thing. Oh shut up. That shit only matt...

Weren't there studies that showed that people who download something are more likely to buy it? Absolutely ludicrous. For what purpose would one person decide to purchase it on DVD after already owning a digital copy on their HDD, for free? To support the company? LOL. I applaud your efforts, but t...

I'm interested, but only because I like the spine artwork-- I would never actually watch them. This is something I wouldn't bother spending a lot on, though. Of course, factor in the cost of shipping. I would throw out a number, but I don't want to possibly offend you with what I consider to be fair...

Can we stop with all of the ridiculous shit-posting? It's hard enough to keep track of Dbox info as it is...

It would be much appreciated if there was a thread specifically labeled "ALL BULLSHITTING GOES HERE," so that I'll explicitly know to avoid it like the plague.

Also, is that an official artwork for the Goku Jr. special? I don't remember him looking THAT dark during his brief appearance at the end. Additionally, that drawing is horrendous-- his head is too wide and the eyes are drawn improperly.

Let's be honest, there is no real way to predict what would have happened had 19 and 20 been the sole enemies of the arc. He has openly admitted to the fact that he was writing the story on a week-to-week basis. Since there was no real planning, there is no way to predict how the story would have un...

Why would a casual dub fan want the Dragon Box if Season One is readily available and cheaper? I think you basically stumped yourself.

I can't believe you guys are stll taking that, "We didn't chage a damn thing line" literally. It can mean anything. When it comes to the Dbox, if they say "we didn't change a damn thing," they'd better mean it. Dude, they didn't even really explain what it was. They knew, that WE KNEW, and our expe...

I don't care what English dub they put on there. For all intents and purposes, it is simply an extra-- this release is not for you, anyways. However, if the inclusion of these extra tracks forces FUNi to downsample the kbps on the JP track to fit everything and make everyone happy, I am going to be ...

That image of Son Goku is far too large. The Dragon Boxes are supposed to look elegant and clean.

I'm assuming that description is incorrect?

I guess the funny part is I've distanced myself so much from DBE due to my utter disgust with the casting for Goku and his god-awful-ridiculous haircut, that I have literally no clue what goes on in the plot.

What does that mean? If the image is 4:3, it still stretches to a 16:9 image unless specifically set to do otherwise?

Why is that dbox shot of Goku not 4:3?

Was there some sort of tampering going on here?
