Dragon Ball Z Blu-ray Cancelled!
In an announcement yesterday, FUNimation Entertainment said they were cancelling all future releases of the Blu-rays for Dragon Ball Z and claimed that among other things, it was just too costly to transfer the series frame by frame.
FUNimation also went on to say that they pretty much did this whole BDZ on BD for the fans, because we wanted it.
Now, I'm not an idiot, I know there is some process to transferring film to digital medium, but the way they made it sound is that they were literally take each frame of the 16mm film and taking a digital snap-shot of it with sanitized hands. Which is a load of crap.
Also, the thing that sort of makes this sting, among other things with FUNimation, is the fact that they just put the blame of the expense on the fans, making it their fault that FUNimation even tried to do this and it failed.
Well, excuse the hell out of me for buying all the Dragon Boxes, and not giving a damn about one of a thousand re-releases the company had done all within three got damn years.
I swear, if ever there was a series or franchise that has been beaten to death, and driven into the ground it has been Dragon Ball Z, and no doubt, it comes as a huge shock to the brains at FUNimation that the show isn't making them a profit anymore.
I for one could care less if the series dies right now on their shelves, and never sees another release. Cause quite frankly, I'm sort of sick of hearing about FUNimation's necromancy.
