Wow...is that really how bad it is on the Blu-Rays? That's disgusting....Super Saiyan Swagger wrote:That was a great episode. I love how they edited this shot here to make it fit for the 16:9 aspect ratio during the next episode preview:

The basic composition is the same, but they are really different. Funimation looks like they literally just cropped the footage that existed. Toei, on the other hand, appears to have actually altered the image in ways Funimation could have.
If I'm correct they also redrew some things. In the original Gohan's ear is absent. And Goten and Trunks are now farther away so you see a little more background. I was a little worried about this scene being cropped as it would look just awful (season sets are a nice example of that) but Toei did a great job with it. Props to them.
Assuming that both frames are the same one, it seems that the guys in Toei just decided to re-crop all the individual images that make the picture, sometimes cutting a bit (Piccolo, Kais, Satan) and sometimes adding (Gohan). Kudos to them.
