Much better. Thank you very much!!
Wow, this one is really damning...
Look at how badly the 30th anniversary messed the speed lines up... So much of them are blurred together into like... Solid, dark gray portions on his shirt? Really bad. Really shows how the real problem with Funi's filtering is that it simply doesn't handle the picture in any kind of consistent or sensible way; loads of detail is stripped out, the linework is all blurry and muddy, and even if it wasn't for the awful Orange Brick-esque erasure of detail, there's such an inconsistency between the blurriness of the linework and how sharp the changes in colours of shading is. And then of course, if you look at it in motion, different parts of the picture will be wobbling in different ways, and the shading is really unstable, shaking and warping around in weird ways, which just looks... Really bad.
I don't know how anyone can look at this set and not see how shit it is. Even Kai 1.0, which I'll always criticise endlessly for how blurry it is from the DNR... At least its only problem is low (nearly standard def) detail level (which, of course, doesn't apply for the 35mm episodes). Funi's sets are just ugly.

I also have some very exciting news regarding the audio of this release. I tried using the surrounds sound on the english dub to see if it was possible to remove the music like in kai and super and still keep the music and sound effects.
The results were mixed. I only have one episode from the buu saga and some from namek at the moment. On the buu saga I was able to remove the music completely, whereas on the namek saga this unfortunately did not work.
But what I did find that is even more exciting is that you can remove the voices completely from the dub and still keep both the music and the sound effects. This worked on both the namek episodes and the buu episode.
Granted the sound effects are pretty quiet at times and have a weird reverb effect (I think that's what it's called) but this is still really cool as I'm quite certain these things aren't possible on the other sets.
I'm gonna try out some other episodes from the saiyan and android saga later to see how those episodes fair as well.
Yes. You'll find this is the exact same on the Season BDs, since the audio is the same as on those.
You will also probably find that the Season DVDs are even easier to do this with, as the surround mix was more simple, so the centre track is much more like an isolated voices track, and the surround channels are much more like an isolated music track, with effects generally floating between the centre and front left+right channels.
