Re: I have the 2019 printing of DB Ch 1-16! What should I check?

So I’ve been holding off buying the manga for for over a decade because of the whole censorship issue. If I’m going to eventually get around to finally getting it, it sounds like this is the version to get?

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

What the hell even is this? Is this real? Aside from the fact that the date for when Kai was recorded is blatantly wrong, is that supposed to imply that Stephanie Nadolny and Tiffany Vollmer lost their roles for refusing to have sex with Sabat, and that Colleen Clinkenbeard and Monica Rial got thei...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

I listened to these so-called ‘BIG LEAKS’ and I just found the whole thing extremely cringy (so cringy it hurt). The only one that may be in hot water is Sean Schemmel, but even then I don’t see that really going anywhere. But hey great job Vic and your Ace Attorney team for trying to burn an entire...

Re: Vic Mignogna

One thing I've gotten from all this is just...how little these people know about the history of Dragon Ball, Nick Reketia included. It's like they've seen nothing but Kamehacon drama. ... Almost like they're not actually long-time Dragon Ball fans or something... Bingo. This has been clear from the...

Walmart 30th anniversary endcap

Relatively minor, but it looks like Walmarts have an endcap set up in their movies section if anyone’s looking to fill in some gaps for their collection. Nothing all that exciting and definitely set up for the more casual collector, but the prices aren’t too bad. They have special exclusive slipcove...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

As nice as the slipcase is, it’s FYE exclusive, so bet on it to never go down in price. At $160 you’re paying $32 per set, so if you don’t have any yet and want them, it’s not bad I guess considering you can get them individually for $20, but never buy one crushed by a spider wrap like that one. Sli...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

These are apparently out now if anyone cares. Of course my local FYE took it upon themselves to immediately choke the things in a spider wrap, destroying the boxes and ensuring that they’ll sit right alongside the other orange brick box that’s been there for years to come. I don’t know what I hate m...

Well, the poll ended with 65% in favor of 4:3. Let's see what happens now.
It comes out as 16:9 anyway.

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

I find the best way to watch Kai is a mixture of Yamamoto and Kikuchi because the placements of both scores are very repetitive. I watched the later episodes with Yamamoto in Japanese and the novelty of a "more cinematic score" eventually wears off. The Manga UK Blu-Ray seasons are a great option f...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

Am i missing something here, because why would anyone buy this? I was under the impression that the issues with these were well documented. Orange bricks are shit, but the blue bricks while not amazing are a very passable release. Frankly if Z was done like the blue bricks instead ten years back, t...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Vic’s YouTube not-lawyer posted a tweet teasing the affidavit of Stan Dahlin. I haven’t followed this case in awhile but it really looks like it’s over, why is this apparently so important to the Vic side when it seems like they’re losing so badly?

It's a bit of a tangent, but I like that the episode guide booklet in the season sets can be found in PDF form on funi's DB websites. Ooo! Do you have a link? My Blue Bricks didn't come with any, just a paper-wasting leaflet telling me how Funimation wasn't going to waste paper on full booklets. I ...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

My local FYE already has a couple big box sets of the orange bricks, the only difference compared to this one is that one has different art on the box. Another thing to collect dust at FYE, I guess.

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Got my DBS: Broli Collector’s Edition from Amazon UK today. I originally had the steelbook ordered too but I managed to grab the US steelbook so I saw no purpose in owning two of the same thing. Really nice package! Are all slipcovers in the UK this durable? I really like how it’s a sideloader too. ...

Yeah but their original post about the 30th set, and the blog post, make it sound like they still feel 16:9 is the cuurent standard for DBZ and 4:3 is just for hardcore fans. From the 30th anniversary page: From the blog post: But now that FUNimation anniversary trailer uses 4:3 footage from the Bl...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Welp, the pre-order period ends tomorrow. They haven't given any updates since the original blog post so I will assume the end product will look like their screenshots. It sure would be disappointing if they did make improvements and didn't say anything about them. That would be the ultimate cherry...
