As a fan I really don't care how much money Funimation made on those sets. They were visually erroneous and ushered in over a decade of disrespecting a beloved show. They had zero reason to crop it in the first place. It's not hard to understand why the letterboxes need to exist on your television. Like, I'm sorry you fell in love with a show from a time when that was the standard aspect ratio and then grew up in a world that suddenly changed all that.Bardo117 wrote: ↑Sat Apr 06, 2019 7:01 pmYou guys are forgetting something very important, PLEASE take context into account when making your statements.
In the eyes of the 99.999999% of fans who have purchased the Orange Bricks, Blu-Rays, they have been absolutely perfect releases. Think about it. It fits perfectly into everyone's television, the colors are vibrant (incorrect, but we all know that people naturally gravitate towards bright pallets) and they're not expensive. I'm willing to say that what we consider the WORST release of all time, is probably FUNI's best seller company wide. Any time I speak to people who own the Orange Bricks, they're always unaware of the cropping. They don't know that extra footage, nor do they seem to mind its missing when I tell them. It's not a big deal AT ALL outside of this community.
And guess what? If it truly bothers you that much, you can zoom in on the picture at the press of a button! And this feature uses about the same amount of effort that went into cropping the Orange Bricks because both were automatic processes! Again, your argument is invalid.
