Dragon Ball Z: Future Blu-rays from FUNimation

Posted June 21, 2013 12:13 AM by Webmaster

FUNimationFUNimation is in the process of preparing additional Blu-ray releases of Dragon Ball Z, complete with newly remastered video presentations. Before proceeding, though, the anime distributor is asking for fan and consumer input via an online survey. Currently, there are 21 Dragon Ball Z releases available on Blu-ray.

Survey questions cover a number of topics: preferred Dragon Ball series, favorite Sagas, 4:3 Original vs. 16:9 Cropped aspect ratios, and more. The official FUNimation message reads as follows: "FUNimation is looking into releasing Dragon Ball Z on Blu-ray at an affordable price with a brand new remaster using new technology to make the show look brighter and crisper. Before we make this decision, we need your input. Please take a few minutes to answer a few questions. Your feedback is valuable to us."

Take the survey by clicking here.

Not really sure how I feel about the "Brighter" part. I'm just worried about another Orange Brick disaster.

I hope the more affordable version doesn't negatively impact the quality too much!

Did the survey. Anybody else who likes Dragonball should do it also.

Yeah, regardless of their past packaging screwups, FUNimation does, at least, like to listen to customer feedback and make something out of it. So the more people that give sound opinions, the more likely we might actually get some good releases. A Dragon Box BD set for Z, or even the original Dragon Ball series would be pretty awesome.

I finished the survey. Wish they have options for both ratios. I personally chose and want original ratio, but I think the sale would be better if they included both. Unfortunately, there are people who hate black bars, regardless of what the original ratio is. This could hurt some sale. I know I would not buy the release if it only has the cropped widescreen(well, unless it's really cheap. ;p)

I filled out the survey and haven't watched any Dragon Ball or Dragon Ball Zed since 2002 or 2001.

At least FUNimation seems to be listening to the fans somewhat this time. I was disappointed to see the old Blu-ray releases get cancelled, but if they could create a product of that level of quality for the entire series, this die-hard Dragon Ball fan would be first in line to buy it.

I take it they mean to continue the "Level" sets? That's cool!

If you love Dragon ball please, please take the survey. I want all of Dragon Ball to be released on blu ray!!!!

Why would anyone not want the proper aspect ratio? Shouldn't even include an option it's just going to attract, and get diluted by, stupid people.

@ Icemouth,

I agree. It would seem ridiculous not go with the original, seeing as you would be losing content on the top and bottom of the frame.

@Icemouth & Yojimbo
I completely agree with you. But unfortunately I know few people who still would use a zoom in feature to view any tv or movie to avoid seeing the black bars. I gave up trying to explain to them about missing pictures. There are people who refuse to watch B&W films or complain about old movies being in 1.37:1 ratio. Sad.

What's wrong with just transferring the dragon boxes to blu-ray (without the fancy packaging)?

I just want UK releases. I could import but that costs too much

I filled out the survey. Could do no less for a series I enjoyed so much as a kid.

Finished the survey, and voiced my opinion strongly for the original 4:3 framing, since purists will want it, and any non-purist, with obviously low regard for the video if they'd request it to be cropped, ALWAYS has the OPTION to just use the zoom feature of their display device. I did mention that it would be nice to have a second style for the translated subs that would put it in a zoom friendly zone, just for more options...

Give us region B releases of all the movies and hurry up and finish the next season Kai! :P

JohnnyFontane:

The Dragon Box masters were done in standard definition, as that restoration was done before the advent of HD home video. So porting those versions over to Blu-ray would not create a picture substantially better than the DVD release.

I myself would just like to see the "Level" sets continued with the same level of remastering, those sets proved Dragon Ball can look great with a proper 1080p remastering effort.

What would be the aspect ratio of the original film, after cropping the borders? Blu-ray doesn't have to be locked at 16:9 or 4x3. Why not make it so that we could see all of the available picture?

Can we get the option to watch with Ocean dub audio, please? The voice acting is far superior.

Took the survey! I really hope they release all three series on BD. As long as they release them as whole individual sagas or a giant box set for each series ill be happy! I need more than just 17 episodes in a volume...
