That's gorgeous - I'd love to see more if you have any!

Thank-you!

It's almost heartbreaking to see the show in such high resolution, it just demonstrates how little FUNimation or Toei need to do to make a competent release. The fact that they're going to all this extra work to produce something inferior is rather depressing.

DBZ episode 85. The film reel is not my own, so I can't share video clips here, but I can provide you guys with still images from specific scenes at least.

Cool. I wonder if there's film reels available for many episodes. How come there's even some available?

It's the incompetence from these people which hurts the most, it's so frustrating.

I think all the original prints given to TV stations were sold off at some point, so between the various collectors, every episode of DB and Z should have at least one private owner.

No, they were not meant to be sold off. Legally speaking, those prints were required to be discarded, but some of them "accidentally" escaped from the disposal.

So very few episodes are available and we don't really know which ones are?

Yes. But there are a lot of film prints from other countries, so I suppose dozens of episodes are floating around the world.

Oh, I see! :lol:

I always thought they were sold off. These things can go for a lot of money, so it just made sense to me. Still, nice to know at least some survived. :)

I have no idea. There's some notes like "for export" on their cases.
