(WIP) DBZ Kai Buu Arc: Sumitomo Rescore

Post by PremiumSalt » Sun Jun 23, 2019 11:43 pm

DBZ Kai Buu Arc: Sumitomo Rescore is a fan made rescore and is designed to work with the official Blu-Ray releases. I do not own Dragon Ball or any associated properties. Please support the official release

The Buu Arc for Kai has never had a particularly good score. The placements are all over the place, the selection of tracks is very limited, and often times the tone of the music is completely at odds with what is actually happening in the scene.

Inspired by Diccolo-420's rescore of the first 98 episodes of Kai (of which he has decided not to continue into the Buu Arc), I have decided to rescore the Buu Arc using both score originally from the Kai Buu OST, as well as tracks from the other DB products Norihito Sumitomo has scored. While some of the placements will be the same as they were originally (on the rare occasions the original placements are good), the vast majority will be redone.

For the OP, I decided to use Mark de Groot's excellent English cover of "Kuu Zen Zetsu Go", the opening from the Japanese version of the Kai Buu Arc. The ED is still "Never Give Up", as I personally like that track, but I'm open to suggestions if people feel it should be replaced. Because the title card theme these episodes used originally used the tune of "Fight it Out", which is no longer the OP, I decided to replace it with the Yamamoto title card theme from the original 98 episodes. The Eyecatches are taken from the end of the instrumental version of "Kuu Zen Zetsu Go". The NEP theme is the "Kuu Zen Zetsu Go" version that the Japanese release used.

Much like Diccolo-420's rescore, I will occasionally be using orchestral versions of some of the better Faulconer themes.

EPISODES COMPLETED: 099, 100, 101, 102, 103

It flows precisely and fluidly from where things left off in the aftermath of the 23rd Budokai and mostly hits the ground running from there without really stopping to look back. You're plopping someone into the middle of a book starting at chapter 195 out of 519 for absolutely no good goddamn reason, with very minimal opportunity to look back at much needed context and character/story growth.

Much needed, great work. Could you upload comparison clips in the future?

I plan on posting a few once I have the Great Saiyaman episodes all finished.

So I'd like to get a second opinion on this but I think the music's volume is a bit low. I've only checked episode 99 so far. Check out the scene where Gohan is flying to school, the dialogue is clear but the music sounds a bit low.

Yeah I thought that might be the case. It's definitely a delicate balance to strike between too quiet and too loud. I'm gonna go in and do some tweaks once I get the Saiyaman episodes done.

Now that I'm back from vacation, work on this will resume. Episode 103 uploading as I type. Also reuploading 102 because for whatever reason when I originally exported it, it only exported a 7 second clip of it.
