'Aight, I just spent a week downloading that 31 gig dump of DBZ remastered.
Is it supposed to be 16:9 natively, or has this shit been cropped?
Pic related is the middle-episode interval. It looks to me like the tip of his foot and hair are cropped out.. Or is that just how it is?
That looks like complete shit, you've wasted a week
>spent a week downloading that 31 gig
You have really shitty internet.
You fucked up.
Should've just watched VHS rips.
I don't know which torrent he's referring to but I'm willing to bet the seed ratio is shit.
Funimation cant remaster for shit.
No such thing
If you want DBZ then download most recent releases from DBNL.
Just watch Dragonball Kai instead.
Cropped. Ratio should be 4:3, not 16:9.
Didn't they actually do really good remasters for a while then stopped?
The quality really isn't bad. I'm just worried I might be missing some on-screen room. If someone has the original DBZ rips, a screencap of the same screen would help.
That I do. I live in a internet-dead end, but my area recently got fiber optic available. I'm having it installed on the 27'th. Also shit torrent.
Are you a britfag OP? Do you have Sky?
If so then just record Dragonball Kai.Some channel shows 2 episodes daily and when finished just re-start from the beggining.
Sorry guy, but the orange brick season sets were cropped in widescreen.
If you want the best release possible I recommend downloading rips of the Dragon Box sets. They're in 4:3 with great remastering from the original film reels. However there is no Bruce Falconer track for the ENG dub.
>However there is no Bruce Falconer track for the ENG dub.
No point then.
Also I was gonna start my own thread but since we already have a DBZ thread going
Then enjoy shitty remastering that saturates the colors to the point of removing the line art with 16:9 cropping
But hey at least you get your shitty rock music
Any chance of helping me find a good dump? Best possible quality and at least a couple seeders.. It's harder than I thought it would be..
The only 'real' one I've found is all in german ;_;
I would love you if the dump happened to have the DRAGON, DRAGON! intro
Enjoy your female Goku.
I hope they bring back the old ost, I'd rather take Faulconer's shit over what the first kai got.
I swear if they cut out the other world tournament/ Videl-Gohan shenanigans.. Those where some of the best parts
and you enjoy your "I am the hope of the universe" bull shit.
Funimation doesn't do shit like that anymore. They only reason they even keep that shit around for DBZ is so they don't piss off the Toonami Nostalgia fans.
Yeah, I do have Sky. And I already have Kai downloaded, but honestly I hate it. I watched about 40 episodes..
I've come to realize that most of my favorite parts of the show are the 'filler', which is just completely cut out of Kai. When things are more focused on an adventure, not just UKA UKA WE FITE.
Like the escapades on the way to Namek, or Gohans little fuck around shortly after becoming a super sayain.
Also I much prefer the original aesthetic.
>Is it supposed to be 16:9 natively
No, it was originally mastered in 4:3, so it's definitely cropped.
Jesus, 94 gigs..
I'm going to need to buy an external HDD just for DBZ shit
So, uh. Are there any Dragonbox dumps that aren't quite this big in size? It would take me years to download this ;_;
Baka doesn't have one do they? Check Bytes.
AnimeBytes, you're going to have to fill in a questionnaire about your favorite chinese cartoons and stuff, have fun with that.
Uh.. those things always break the Opera browser.
>Need to register and log-in
What are the chances of someone just pasting the magnet link here
Is it wrong if I stream shows with 100+ episodes? I don't want to take up that much space.
>implying I wouldn't be enjoying mexican Goku
Top lel, m8, enjoy your mediocre Funi soundtrack.
It's a private tracker. You may as well just get in.
Yes, you retarded piece of shit.
Literally every other VA is better in japanese. Goku is the only questionable one, and even then it's bearable.
This, Piccolo and Vegeta are a lot better, and let's not forget how shitty the dub versions of Freeza and Cell are compared to based Ryusei Nakao and Norio Wakamoto
>every other VA is better in japanese
Two fuck ups right next to each other, that's gotta be embarrassing.
Also the the original Kikuchi orchestral soundtrack is miles better than the shitty techno-rock Faulconer dub music. Seriously, the only reason anyone prefers the dub music is if they're some shitty Toonami-nostalgiafag
English Perfect Cell is fine get your head out of your ass.
I don't really care about the audio quality of the voice acting. The English dubs for DBZ are simply better written than the subs.
I like to have the subs over the dub, just to compare them
>The English dubs for DBZ are simply better written than the subs.
I like Funi's dub, but the script was terrible until buu saga.
Here's a quick example.
Dub: "Dohoho, there you are. Be it ever so humble."
Sub: "Here it is. I finally made it back
The sub is just a literal translation with no personality. Like a robot.
>like a robot
>posts a picture of a robot
That was the joke
Seriously though, it's true
>English Z writing was better
You're going to want the Dragonbox sets--They're remastered in the highest quality of any set, and they're not cropped. Unfortunately, the Funimation dub doesn't come with the falconeur soundtrack.
Someone was working on a 4 audio track rip with the Dragonbox's video quality, which I believe had...
-Funimation dub with Falconer music
-Funimation dub with Japanese music
Try hunting for that. It's the optimal DBZ package.
The Namek saga was maximum cheeze and power levels all around
The cheese factor kept going. They really wanted to drive the idea in that Goku was a "superhero fighting for justice."
aw man, I thought Kai was just an abridged DBZ, but they literally changed the script
something about how deep the colours are really annoy me, too..
>but they literally changed the script
More like they actually kept the script the same as the Japanese version. It was Z that changed up the script and took up way too many liberties.
So the Kai dub is based around the Jap subs?
I've been watching it with the subs on, man. That simply isn't the case.
Yeah. DBZ's dub was based on '90s anime dubbing practices - dumbing dialogue down (including taking liberties with the script), changing some plot/character stuff and changing the music.
They wanted to make Kai's dub as close to the original source material as possible.
You can *really* see how off Z's dub was starting with the Freeza saga: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBGrGPhGZBw
The Cell/Goku video was a poor example. The DBZ script there is significantly better
>The DBZ script there is significantly better
>Goku being a warrior of justice is better than being a guy who grew up in the mountains that likes to fight
He went from having personality, to >I FITE U TOMORROW REEL GUD PLS BE EXCITE
