New Release Tuesday – DBZ, OniAi, Ikki Tousen, & SAVE

 

The Dragon Ball Z – Season One Blu-ray is now available! Make room on your shelves because the Dragon Ball Z Season Sets are finally on Blu-ray! We embarked on a frame-by-frame restoration process to remove any blemishes, tape marks, and foreign bodies that might have tarnished your viewing experience. All three audio tracks have been re-mastered in the interest of noise reduction and superior sound quality. The bolder, more vibrant color of this ultimate Dragon Ball Z release closely mirrors the visual aesthetics of today’s entertainment. Lastly, we undertook a precise shot-by-shot reframing of the entire series to create a modern HD widescreen presentation of this legendary fan favorite! It’s time to experience Dragon Ball Z like you’ve never experienced it before!

 

Also available today we have our first subtitle-only releas–OniAi. Here’s a little bit about this show.

 

synopsis:

 

Feast your eyes on host of desirable darlings in this sassy comedic romp from the dirty little minds that brought you Baka and Test and Hayate the Combat Butler!

When adorable teenager, Akiko, is reunited with her big brother, Akito, she’s determined to take her sisterly affection to the next level! But her BroCon fantasies are dealt a cruel blow by the arrival of three colorful rivals. There’s a blonde heiress with a fetish for plushies, a boyish beauty who yearns to serve, and a ravishing redhead who’ll stop at nothing to get her man! Every coy ploy Akiko dreams up is deviously derailed by robes that just happen to fall open, the flashing of come hither eyes, or scandalous splashing in the community bath! While Akiko has her hands full staying a step ahead of the competition, poor conflicted Akito can’t help but think: my little sister can’t be this…adorable!?

 

What do you think of having subtitle-only releases? Is this something you’d like to see more of in the future?

 

Also available today, we have Ikki Tousen – Great Guardians on DVD and Chrono Crusade joins our S.A.V.E. (Super Amazing Value Edition) line on DVD.

“Dragon Ball Z” Season Sets Blasting onto Blu-ray This Winter

 

Flower Mound, TX (November 7, 2013) – FUNimation® Entertainment has announced that it is giving the Blu-ray release of the anime phenomenon Dragon Ball Z another go.

Originally attempted with the Level Sets in 2011, production was suspended due to technical challenges of the frame by frame restoration from the original film.  After careful evaluation of the process, FUNimation is glad to announce that restoration has recommenced and releases will be available before years end.

Different from the Level Sets before it, the episode count on the Blu-ray Season Sets will be identical to their extremely popular DVD counterparts. Also different, is the restoration and re-mastering process being used. A bolder, more vibrant color palette is being used to produce a picture current, and future, televisions can take advantage of. The Blu-ray Season Sets will also come in a widescreen format. Precise shot-by-shot reframing of each scene has used to ensure the optimal picture when converting from its native, full screen format.

“We want Dragon Ball Z to be a part of the modern, HD experience,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and president at FUNimation Entertainment. “We want people to see it and know that the time and care has been taken to give them something similar to what they’d see being created  today.”

Each set of three releases will feature never-before-seen triptych cover art, showcasing the major heroes and villains from Dragon Ball Z’s three major sagas.

Included in the Dragon Ball Z Blu-ray Season Sets will be a nine-part extra features special that spans the entirety of the releases. Each Season Set will include brand new cast interviews, retrospectives, and fan submissions.
