Seriously, FUNimation. Seriously, Toei. It's now or never.

4:3 ratio.
Japanese broadcast audio.
Uncensored.
It's gotta happen now. I don't really see Blu-Ray still being a thing when the 40th anniversary hits.


(Of course, the crazy completist in me would want all the various English dubs included, but I know it's a pipe dream to except anything other than what FUNi financed themselves.)
I was thinking it would be cool if the put the ocean dub (SD) on one or two blurays as a bonus since that was the first incarnation of Z in the US.
What if these are the season sets re-packaged... Says no mention of "remastered" anywhere, or the aspect audio.
It won't be the season sets repackaged. There wouldn't be high costs associated with that, especially when 2,500 preorders are required to cover it.

That ship has sailed, but hopefully if this sells we will get original DB and GT Blu-Rays, I could see the demand being there since the former has only been released on the format in Spain and the latter has only been available in SD on the home release market up until now.

I was really hoping for the first Dragon Ball anime to get the HD treatment... Oh well...

If this Blu-Ray re-release for DBZ is reasonably priced, I'll certainly weigh up my options.

I'll take localized title cards, opening, closings, etc. They can leave out the NEPs for all I care. Hell, I would even sacrifice the Broadcast audio. Just give me the show in 4:3. Please.

Zero context, zero setup. Its in NO way meant to be seen as a "beginning point" for ANYTHING other than the next story arc. 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.

Wanted to sign up on Funimation website, but of course its not available in Poland :( If its gonna be 4:3 Levet or Dragon Box level of quality with NEP and broadcast audio, i might even sell Dragon Boxes to get those, as it will truly be ultimate release :)

Clearly FUNimation doesn't want a repeat of the Level Sets where people didn't buy enough, leading to their cancellation. If it is a remaster similar to the Level Sets (I'd be happy enough with that especially if it includes the Broadcast Audio) I would think the price might be similar to that of the overall price of the Level Sets, had they been completed.

Anybody know how many sets that would've been? And each set cost what, like $25 or so? Trying to estimate what FUNi will be charging for this...

This shit is gonna cost around $600, maybe more, if they force you to buy all the extra stuff with it. Ridiculous.
Heroes come and go, but legends are forever.

60.

Rest in peace.

RRP was $35 for the Levels IIRC there planned to be 17 sets making it just under $600. We've got extra trinkets this time though.

So I watched Geekdom's recent video on this and he mentioned Toei tweeting a picture of the 3-star ball and Funimation tweeting a picture of the 4-star ball. He interpreted this as them making an announcement either on the 4th of March or the 3rd of April (which would coincide with the anniversary).

I have another possible interpretation. Maybe they were hinting at 4:3 aspect ratio.

Oh wait I seen other people mention this on the previous page. Guess I wasn't the first to think that might be it.

Well this is exciting. Kind of wish I would get an email confirmation or something that I signed up. Guess I'll just be checking this thread regularly for a while to make sure I don't miss out.

So does this mean there's no way for people outside of the US and Japan to secure a copy at the moment?

The complete Dragon Ball Z series on Blu-ray with new bonus content.
Why... are they specifying new bonus content not remaster?
The short answer? We aren’t looking to crowdfund this set. We feel that Kickstarter and similar crowdfunding platforms are typically asking fans to fund the creation of new content, not something like a collector’s edition which may be cool but isn’t quite the same as new content
FUNi also did a Kickstarter for Escaflowne's 20th Anivv and that was for a new dub and HD release. So surely new remaster will class as "new content"?

Something fishy is going on....

Nobody is secured anything. All FUNi want is 2500 people registered as interested which would make them realise this release is worth releasing then they'll presumably price it up and make it available to pre on the usual places.

Essentially anyone outside U.S has to rely on Americans registering enough interest.

seeing how much dissapointed comments on twitter about the announcement i am not confident at all about that , about that , did they said the price? (preordering it's nice but you have to know the price for that)

This was just an announcement. They said they will give out more details later on that will obviously include price and probably a look at the remaster. I’d expect they also give us a few weeks to order so we can consider it.
An interviewer asks, "The soundtrack in Sonic 3 has become legendary. Is it true that you worked with Michael Jackson on it?" Takashi Iizuka kills all of our hopes and dreams by replying, "You know, those are just rumors, and SEGA does not want to say anything about them. So they will forever be just rumors..." WHY!?

For now, but I'd say that will change. Manga UK may even acquire this release if there's enough interest, so I'd definitely suggest recommending it by any means necessary. Enough people demanded Super and they got that out in a timely manner, so who knows. Granted their release will probably be lacking in the packaging department but it could end up being a budget alternative if Funimation's price tag turns out to be too high....

I don’t want a stupid figure or art book. I just want a competent HD release of the series.

For now I’ll register with a VPN and proxy shipping service and see how this pans out.
