Dragon Box for Kai?

Post by WesMan23 » Wed Mar 19, 2014 4:02 pm

Once the Buu saga Kai is released, do you think they'll do something similar to what they did for the Dragon Boxes and release a box set with extra materials and so on? Or do you think they will just be sold per season as they're doing now? It would be cool to have something like that, though it would be much smaller than the original Dragon Box, but they could do like a combo set, with Blu-Ray and DVD in the same set, as well as other goodies and so on, and the whole series could probably be purchased at a reasonable price that way, maybe $100 or so.

That's a very good question...that would be awesome really...but, you're talking about FUNimation or Happinet ?
For the japanese market, a complete re-release is hopeless, given the poor sales in Japan for the first 98 episodes.I guess they'll release a "Majin Buu Hen" Blu Ray box, and that's all.
And for our "friends" in Texas :lol: ....everything is possible.

That would be really awesome, but personally I don't think Kai really needs a box set because the Season sets are already good enough while Japan and U.S had their reasons for needing it really badly. I wonder how it would look like?! :lolno:

Isn't the whole Dragon Box thing about getting the best picture and audio from the series? You have this for Kai already, it's the Blu-Rays.

A dragon box mastering on kai, wouldn't look any different.
It is clear that sometime in Mark Satan's life, he acquired the dragon balls and called upon shenlong to grant him immortality.

Why would Toei Animation release a "Dragon Box" release of an unprofitable show? Not only is it not necessary but they've already released it in two forms, boxes and singles.

Exactly, I would see no point in making a dragon box type release.

The reason the other series and movies got a dragon box release was because they didn't have any other release unlike kai which has 2 : DVD/Blu-ray

No many of the movies from the Dragon Box were already released on laserdisc.

LaserDisc was outdated by that time. DVDs were big during that time and the movies also needed a better, new remaster.

Wrong. DVD didnt even exist yet when Dead Zone was released. Where are you getting your bogus information from?

It's also for collector's sake because in the case of Ball, Z and GT the Dragon Boxes had the best packaging of any release of the series.

You misunderstand. He's saying that DVDs were popular by the time the Dragon Boxes were being released, not when the movies themselves were being released.

Also, if we're treating the Dragon Boxes as a release for purists, that is impossible, given the music replacement.
