After Shueisha revived Dragon Ball in 2008 with a 34-minute special produced for the Jump Super Anime Tour, Toei went even further beyond by creating two more OVAs in 2010 and 2011. The first was a remake of the 1993 "Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans" Playdia OVA, while the second was something of a sequel to the original Bardock TV special from 1990. Last year these two OVAs were made available on Blu-ray in France, thus giving us these two specials in HD for the first time.
Since wrapping up the initial pass on GT, we've brought on several new team members and are looking to work on the movies and various other things. As our work on the GT batches currently only focuses on audio (Yes, it is still happening - we promise!!), we thought the rest of the team could start working on these OVAs as the first part of our "Phase 2" operations.
Many delays later, here we are.
The subtitles for both specials were partially based on the official subtitles from the video game releases of these OVAs but with heavy reworking due to poor diction and often just bad translation. Even lines that were technically entirely accurate were often too obtusely worded to make out any coherent meaning, and lines as straightforward as one reading "Son-kun, Piccolo, you two would survive" were in fact the exact opposite of what was intended.
Included on this release:
-1080p video encoded by Chotab from the French Blu-rays
-Japanese and French audio, in FLAC.
-GTeam's English subtitles.
-Retranslation: Sangofe, Pendekar, Kokujin-kun
-Subtitle cleanup: Mizunokamo
-Styling: GTeam-wide collaboration
Next time on GTeam: All the movies in full-frame 4:3, with several dubs?
