Anime News Network has featured FUNimation’s Director of DVD, Blu-ray & Video Production Clarine Harp and Blu-ray, DVD and Video Production Manager Matt O’Hara in their latest podcast, where he has spoken in detail on the up-and-coming Dragon Ball Z Blu-ray. Along with this, FUNimation has released a few comparison shots of the various DBZ releases for fans to compare. It’s nice to see that they have released these so we’ll know what we’re buying! You can check these images out below.
FUNimation has mentioned the following to keep in mind when looking at the comparison shots:
We provided ANN with some comparison shots of the various DBZ releases that I’ve included below. A few things you might notice about the video is that HD restoration of the film has color most true to the original work, while keeping the most amount of detail. Also, the Blu-ray version will contain more visual footage due to maintaining the original 4:3 aspect ratio in contrast to the Orange Season Sets. Since the HD restore is also handled frame-by-frame, many scratches or anomalies were removed that may be visible in previous releases.
Of coarse, hip-hop rapper Soulja Boy was one of the first to know, as he got both a tweet and email about it. I guess these are one of the advantages of having a famous dance named after you. Lucky guy!
