Question about Pioneer DVD Trilogy

Post by MarCas92 » Sat Aug 17, 2019 7:06 am

Do they have the original Japanese OP and ED Credits?

What about titles?

They use English credits that credits the Japanese cast and crew first and then the English cast and crew at the end. (As opposed to Funimation that prioritizes their cast and crew first and then is like oh yeah here’s some Japanese people who work on Dragon Ball Z without bothering to credit the Japanese cast)

OP/ED are the creditless reels with Pioneer's own credits added on top; OP credits both the relevant Japanese and English crew, and as Masenko notes, ED credits first lists everyone on the Japanese side who were credited originally, in English writing, then credits everyone who worked on the English side.

Title cards are, I believe, left as-is but with a subtitle.
Never lose hope that your situation can improve.

That's how most of Pioneer's as well as their successor Geneon's dvds were with the listing of translated credits with the end ones having Japanese crew then English crew later.
