Hey guys have funimation fixed the audio issues with parts 1 and 2 of TFC? I've put off buying these sets for a while now due to those audio issues.

No. They've already released the sets. They're not doing a disc replacement program or anything.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.
TFS getting shafted from the Kai TFC dub is a great travesty.
GT sucks, get over it if you disagree.
We'll see what happens to Vic.
Um...Listen to Waterparks.
That is all.

Damn that's a shame. FUnimation always finds a way to screw up a DBZ home release.

I'm guessing newer printings of these sets havn't fixed the audio issues? I would totally re-buy them if it was fixed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-svyyf3 ... e=youtu.be

Well I bought and returned a couple used copies of part 3 because I was curious and yep..same issue (no guarantee they are new prints buuut who knows). Can anyone who has bought them recently tell me if they still have the issue?

Hi. I was wondering if all prints of this released with a slipcover. Do later runs have it?

I'm thinking about ordering from Amazon but fear they will ship me a BR without one.

I ordered Part 3 of The Final Chapters last week on Amazon and when I received it, it did indeed come with a slipcover. If it's listed as new then it should have one. Hope this helps.

How was the dub audio track? Does it still have a bad sound mix? You can tell the difference by switching dub to sub for comparison. The sound effects will be muffled.

I haven't watched it yet actually. I received it in the mail yesterday, but I've been busy with work and school I have not had the time quite yet. While I know there are audio issues with TFC, I'm not too familiar with the exact moment where the audio is muffled. I will have to get back to you on that. Do you have a specific scene you want me to check?

Which dub has issues?

Guess I'll risk it. I can't return it if I don't get one so hopefully I don't get screwed.

It is pretty much the entirety of the final chapters as far as I know. I think maybe the first few episodes of part 1 is fine but literally all of part 2 and 3 are borked.

It's the funimation english track.

Here is an example of what I mean . Altough its far more noticeable in your own setup.

Okay, so just to preface this I am not a professional audio engineer or anything of the sort but to MY ears the sound effects still sound muffled. Not quite as bad as what I heard in that YouTube clip, but it's noticeable. Also, I thought it might be important to point out that the VOICES/voice actors sound clear to me. You guys might say otherwise.

After watching an episode, I did not find the sound effects too distracting after a while. This release is not perfect, but I'm satisfied with it (green tint and all). I don't expect Funi or Toei to change this so I just picked up the three TFC releases as is. Take that as you will.

Oh well, that's what I figured. I don't think they have any intention on fixing it because the average consumer wouldn't notice or care. Maybe on a complete Kai collectors edition 5-10 years down the line maybe. The voices and music are good its just the power ups/attacks/debris falling etc. Also I found that turning my tv's color temp to 'normal" made the green tint barely noticeable...buut it still looks off so I stick with warm.

Not always. I ordered the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood movie from Amazon new a few years ago & it didn't have it.

What opening theme does the US releases have? The Japanese one or that weird Engrish one the international airings had?
''Gotta catch 'em all! Dragon Baaaaall!''

The Engrish one. Kuu Zen Zetsu Go and the associated ending themes are only part of the Japanese TV cut. Everywhere else got the International cut with Fight It Out and Never Give Up. Incidentally, the only dubs to actually dub Fight It Out and Never Give Up are the Latino Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese dubs, at least AFAIK.

Sacred Star of Milos? In any case, that's rather odd. Not sure why they wouldn't include it. Really sucks to hear that though.
