For those who don't know: the 30th Anniversary BD is an incredibly halfassed remaster. Funimation used Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) to get rid of the film grain. Grain looks good in still images but it makes moving images very chaotic because each frame has different bits of dust and dirt on it. All that dust is flying around. It takes a lot of time and patience and labor budget to get rid of this stuff manually so they used the automated DNR process. The problem is that the computer can't always tell the difference between actual noise and integral detail. Once-detailed background drawings become smeary blobs. Character line art fades. Funimation tried to make up for this by playing with brightness and contrast settings, auto-sharpening the remaining lines, and adding an artificial grain filter to give texture the sterilized art, but this just created new problems like blinding colors, rigid and wobbly shading, and hazy/jittery boundaries in general. The artificial grain filter also bloats file size and makes video compression a pain in the ass, even more than the Level Sets which have real grain. That's why the best encode currently out there cuts the raw bitrate by *more than half*: that is what is required to get the file size down to something people consider normal. And the more you compress the video, the more the artificial grain gets blurred out. Some might consider this a positive, but it puts a soft haze over everything, and that's on top of the blur caused by shoddy film-scanning work which really gets out of hand in the Cell arc. So why bother timing the broadcast audio for such a problematic release? Two reasons: First, some people actually find this set to be an enjoyable way to watch the series. About 3/4 of it probably looks great to the average viewer. They don't care about things like harsh shading and skittish boundaries (they should, for our sake, but they don't) and they can probably live with the blur and brightness issues. Second, many of us will want to watch this remaster to familiarize ourselves with it, and the broadcast audio makes it infinitely more tolerable for those of us who watch in Japanese. I timed the audio using [Deli295's work](https://nyaa.si/view/1190222) using the native Japanese audio as a guide. Since the timing was done manually in Audacity, there are irregularities—there were irregularities in both the Tokai edit and the native audio, and in some cases it looks like someone tried to compensate for frame rate differences manually with little deletions and extensions throughout, causing drift—but the edits I made to compensate for drift are microscopic so you won't notice them. Each episode was manually checked, with special attention given to the transitions. In some cases, I think only in the recaps, the music in the native JP Kikuchi track doesn't even line up with the native dub Kikuchi track, and it remains that way on this edit because their dub timing doesn't work for the Japanese track. The eye catch timing in the Saiyaman-Boo arcs is a bit sporadic. Funimation used the alternate version of Eyecatch B for 201-239, while Toei only used it for 201-202, so I had to time Eyecatch B sort of arbitrarily on 203-239 (mostly using 200 as my guide). But they changed the timing a few times for both eyecatches, and when the music was the same, I just used their timing regardless. I wouldn't recommend using my edit as a basis for any other release; there was a stretch of episodes (mostly in the Freeza arc) where I had to make too many little micro-deletions to match the Funi timing. (And that means that whoever timed Funi's audio in-house made micro-deletions in the first place.) I did these in blank space when possible, but it was not always possible, which is why I'm pretty sure it's not Deli295's fault. (You still won't notice the deletions, though.) I made a few patches for things like broadcast alerts and pitch warps, but I only spot-checked between the transitions and I probably missed some things. I tried to detail the major patches below, but I know I neglected to note a few minor patches. **004:** Broadcast alert noise patched with winxbloom audio; **067:** Broadcast alert noise patched with native audio; **184:** Funi's JP track awkwardly cuts off the sound of Gohan's aura at the end of the episode, leaving an ugly gap of silence for more than a second before it cuts to the ED. I extended the aura sound with a fade-out to fill the gap; **204:** Patched pitch warp after title card with native audio; **228:** Patch of audio skip from 14:23.05 to 14:23.17 using native audio. The skip is total dead air on the winxbloom OBA, but the Tokai audio has missing information that throws off the sync, so I started with a small patch from winxbloom to more precisely target the area to be patched with the muffled native audio; **290:** Patched a tiny bit of dead space just before 2:58 using native audio.

Lmao jesus christ the complaining about this set is unreal just dont watch it dudes, I'm sure Toei will give us a decent release hopefully within the next decade. Lol seems like people have been watching this set just to yell at their TV screens and stay up all night tweeting at Funimation I just dpnt get it.

Lmao jesus christ the complaining about people describing this set is unreal just scroll on by dudes, I'm sure you paid $350 for it and don't regret your purchase one bit. Lol seems like people have been watching Nyaa just to yell at their monitors and stay up all night writing angry comments on uploads of people who busted their ass for over a month just to make this shitty release a tiny bit better I just dpn't get it.
Lmao " Angry Comments" I'm sorry you're a bit sensitive there guy I wasnt angry at all just wondering a simple thing. Why watch something when you dont like it? It's kinda like being mad a gay guy for being gay, why do you care where he sticks his penis and why let it continue to bother you? Just move along and let people be. Why be so angry that people like a certain thing? Why isnt it good enough to just keep your opinion to yourself and live with it? Why? Why? I just wanna.know why lol

Dude I explained it all in the post, which you apparently were incapable of reading because the the first sentence gave you apoplexy. Just scroll on by and leave people be. You're not contributing anything here.
Lol no you didnt. I'm just wondering why watch something you think looks halfassed? Also stop with the rude assumptions, I can read, and no nothing gave me apoplexy. Just wondering why? The picture apparently is unbearable from the way people describe it but yet everyone seems to be watching it. Lmao.why?? Also how is constantly complaining and shitting on people who bought it contributing to anything? Is funimation really gonna hear your criticisms of this release and suddenly give us another release because so many complained?? I dont think they will.
@420666969 How did you manage to check all the episodes 1 by 1? it would take almost 100 hours to watch all of them, much less edit.

@gokuz - I've been working on this for over a month, and like I said, I paid special attention to the transitions (where timing is most likely to present issues) and skipped through the rest (though of course I stopped to watch occasionally because I love this show). @Gnosis >So why bother timing the broadcast audio for such a problematic release? Two reasons: First, some people actually find this set to be an enjoyable way to watch the series. About 3/4 of it probably looks great to the average viewer. They don’t care about things like harsh shading and skittish boundaries (they should, for our sake, but they don’t) and they can probably live with the blur and brightness issues. Second, many of us will want to watch this remaster to familiarize ourselves with it, and the broadcast audio makes it infinitely more tolerable for those of us who watch in Japanese. It's right there dude. I know words are hard but try again.
Wow, funi should have hired you to do that. The jap audio is bad, so much so I muxed it out of the video.
No you try again I'm asking why people watch it and complain about it? Im Not asking why you released this broadcast sync. You must be very dense.

@gokuz - It's the same JP audio that every official release of the series is cursed with, though there are minor variations in quality. The Dragon Box audio is the best but it's still bad. My understanding is that people have been begging Funi to use this audio in their releases for years but they won't do it, maybe because they are worried about the legality, or maybe because Toei is worried about the legality and told them not to use it. PS: my internet is not great on a good day, and today is not a good day at all. It should be fully seeded by the end of the day, though.
> many of us will want to watch this remaster to familiarize ourselves with it Well, I did try, but it just wasn't for me. > I’m sure you paid $350 for it and don’t regret your purchase one bit. I know I would have, so I cancelled my pre-order. The best thing about the release is the figure and I'll eventually get a deal on that on eBay. The 30A is a shitty release, but it's in 4:3 AR so it's somewhat better than the Season Sets, at least. Those who like it, good for them, but have to acknowledge the picture quality is heavily flawed though they don't think it actually is due to the DNR and sharpening done to the image. Given that the 30A were released as "Seasons" there's a possibility FUNimation will make a standard release and perhaps remove the fake grain. Moreover, if the OBs had been released in 4:3 AR they would have still been better than this as the automated process done to that release while flawed too, you can still see the details. Yes, the OBs are in places much darker. Enjoy it. I'm not here to argue with anyone about it. That's all I had to say.
@420666969 thank you very much :D appreciate the efort :D
@420666969 you are a legend, thank you for as you say making this release that much more bearable! Very much appreciated, ignore the haters, we all know what we are getting into with the 30th anniversary edition. This is the audio i need to make it all worth while! Thanks for taking your time making it right!
Is this supposed to be only 19GB for a 291 episode BA release when the BA is one of the three in file size 150GB | 66GB | 39GB https://nyaa.si/view/1152261 | https://nyaa.si/view/1190222 | https://nyaa.si/view/1092706

Source file (from your second link): ![](https://i.imgur.com/8LnbRLM.png) My edit: ![](https://i.imgur.com/tHgDlUB.png) I saved all my Audacity projects so if anyone *really* wants that 24-bit 96k stuff, I could theoretically run it again, but I don't think anything important was lost here.
> ignore the haters Fans criticize the 30A for valid reasons, which doesn't make them "haters." By that logic you'd say film critics who gave a film a low score are "haters" and in case it was GB2016 or Charlie's Angels 2019 then also call male viewers and critics as "sexist" for disliking it. It's a slippery slope road with that mentality.

I mean, I started off my post with a screed about how much this remaster sucks, so if that's what he was talking about, I guess he was telling me to ignore myself? I have a lot of friends who hate this remaster but they're still going to watch it to familiarize themselves with it. That's who this audio is for, mainly. I familiarized myself with it already just by checking the audio timing in every single episode. I didn't watch the series straight through but I wouldn't be surprised if I have put my eyes on more of it than anyone else who doesn't work in Funimation's video engineering department.
more like people hating on these uploads, definitely hate on the commercial release all you want. Romao's upload is my preferred viewing release with iKaos for archival. Watched the first episode of the 500gb rip and it's not as bad as i thought it would be, but definitely not good. was hoping for better colors like the single funimation dvds but without the artifacting present with the lower quality dvd. Instead its the dragon box with blur added and slightly dulled (just based off first episode viewing) with little to no sharpness. So having watched an episode yes, the release from funimation is ass, totally ok to hate on that, by ignore the haters it's people posting comments about why waste however much time you spent syncing the audio to this release that very few people will utilize. But i appreciate it for archival purposes, it'll be sitting there right next to the VHS rips posted prior. Maybe one day someone can piece together pieces of the funimation singles (color corrected as not badly aged) just terrible macroblocking compared to the dragon box with a nicely synced r1 jp audio with pieces cut in and spliced together to make a release that we deserve because it's all we will have.
Lmao I guess you guys just love complaining about this release cause its fun is what I'm seeing. Lol damn how toxic is the dragon ball community holy hell. Okay I'm done. Bye.
> Romao’s upload That's a remux of the R2J Dbox Z, but with low quality OBA.

@Gnosis - It's because of people like you who can't tell the difference between a faithful remaster and a shitty one that we keep getting shitty ones. So thanks again for contributing nothing to this fandom, this website, or this conversation! @sparks - Be careful judging the blur by an encode that blurs out the artificial grain (and cuts the bitrate by more than half). There are definitely blur issues in the raw, but they're compounded by encodes like that.
Lmao i didn't buy this! I'm waiting for toei to release something decent. I just don't understand watching a "Shitty" release. Lol and "Familiarizing" yourself with it? Really? That's your excuse as to why you watch it lmao okay bro okay. And again I guess complaining forever and crying how funimation doesn't listen contributes alot man yeah keep "Contributing" hahaha

it me, every day in this godforsaken fandom
This looks good. Although @420666969 , regarding the audio signal at around the 31khz - 32khz mark that got cut out from the original BA files, isn't that hiding a signal containing design schematics encoded in a 2D to 3D plane to create a Saiyan space pod that can transport only a single person to planet Vegeta through wormholes and such? :D jk

The bit at the 48k mark is God's Temple. All the scenes there will be silent. Sorry about that.
@420666969 Are you the one who posted this? https://nyaa.si/view/1204541 I assume its yours? The audio

It is my audio, yes.
> @Gnosis Stop complaining bro. If you like downloading it, if you don't like it, you don't need to download it, it's very simple. > @420666969 Thank you for your hard work, I really appreciate this.
Please seed, thnks for your upload!
