They are for the fans of Japanese version. And Funimation definitely did not screw up Dragon Box. There are English subtitles for the Japanese audio. Totally inappropriate style of comment. I love the video quality of my boxes, I just really miss Faulconer. We should treat it as an extra, but the fact of matter is that Dragon Box was, and is, aimed for the fans of Japanese version, hence why they never included dub music track.
Almost exactly 50% of Kanzenshuu's visitor base is from outside North America. The ratio is the same as the orange bricks but the shots have been selective so instead of missing part of a persons face it may miss part of his hair now. That being said, however, they are really expensive. I'm well aware that Dragon Ball began in the 1980's. Those new Blu-rays are just upscale of the Orange Brick sets.
It really depends on what you care about more. Also, which dub do the Dragon Boxes use because I simply can't stand the Ocean dub. A lot of people on this forum have said the Faulconer doesn't fit, but I'm the exact opposite. Almost exactly 50% of Kanzenshuu's visitor base is from outside North America. Hopefully we'll get all three series in form or the other, eventually.
I like to watch the Japanese dub as well. Fanart and cosplay must be image submissions, and the artist s must be credited in the title. The last of the season sets had just barely been released when the Dragon Boxes were announced and put onto shelves, then the last Dragon Box was barely in peoples' hands when the blu-ray sets were introduced. You can be a fan of both the English and Japanese versions in their own right. I'm sure there are fans on here who are away more knowledgable on the subject.
The Dragon Boxes are the best quality Dragon Ball Z has ever been released in, I've owned them all in the past and don't see an difference in quality from those dvd sets and the files in this torrent, they are identical to me. The market became oversaturated for it which is really too bad. I have always been a huge Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z fan. The Japanese is mono only. This is Dragon Ball Z, uncut, digitally restored, and in high quality. While it certainly doesn't apply to everybody, I do see the same thing.
SativaSam, quite frankly, Funimation didn't screw up the releases for past several years. I can't really speak much on the dragon boxes since I do not own them but I do know that they are the original ratio and not cropped that's why everyone loves it. . Instead, it was indefinitely canceled because they couldn't afford to even keep producing it with such minuscule sales. I've heard of people editing it and doing it, just curious really. The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. Dragon Box has also put up their boxes again.
If you don't want a dub on it at all, you can always import the Japanese discs. I understand you want something else, but maybe it's the universe doing its damnedest to convince you over to our side. I truly just think it comes down to how you watched it first. The dismissal follows a settlement agreement by the parties involved, the terms of which have not been publicly released. That case is still ongoing.
There were some people who turned their noses up to them because the remastering job wasn't being done by Toei while others refused to have anything to do with them because they didn't have next episode previews or Japanese title cards. S with the Faulconer and really enjoyed it. My apology if that's coming off as inappropriate to you. You do have Kai though, but not Z. I just feel like when listening to the Japanese soundtrack, a lot of the music sounds like something I'd hear in an 80's dance class. I have a really hard time making a decision like this because I can't really weigh the pros and cons.
Though they might be hard to track down. If you don't, go for the orange bricks. There's no such thing as a caste system when it comes to any sort of fandom, none of us are superior or inferior to others and everybody is free to enjoy and prefer the original Japanese version or their dub of choice. Apparently they had a terrible remaster and they cropped the image from 4:3 to 16:9 and in the process 20% of the image was lost. I have nothing against the japanese music it's just I grew up watching it with Bruce Faulconer's music and I really would like it if I could find torrents with that. I most definitely prefer the way Saiyans scream in Japanese, but there's a lot good about the dub to.
