Wow wow WOW! Been waiting for this for ages. Felt like forever. Downloading now. Thanks Yibis.
Just curious, if this is from a Blu-ray, shouldn't it be 1080p?
Goddamn, I swear the prices of the One Piece DVDs are going back UP.
Pain in the ass.
Does Amazon have some kind of feature where I mark a product to be watched and when the price on it comes down, I get an email or something?
Actually if you see a good price, but don't have enough money to buy it say that week, try adding it to your cart and then click Save to Buy Later.
I JUST bought a new 37" HDTV and the price was going up and down randomly. I saved it in my cart when it was $565. It seemingly ran out of stock and went up in price from their other outlets/merchants. But a week later, even though the 565 Price wasn't listed at all, I STILL got it for that price since I saved it in my cart. Go me!
Just reading the past pages about K-F. Damn! They sure changed into a bunch of douchebags. To think I actually respected them at one time. I remember when they said they'd be happy to give up subbing if someone bought and released the series uncut here. But then that was a long time ago in the "dark age" of One Piece fandom (IE 4Kids on the air, relicensing looked next to impossible). I guess it was just an empty promise when an official Uncut release looked impossible. And when the series DID get released, I thought it was understandable that they wanted to continue releasing Water 7/Enies Lobby episodes especially since I found them better than Gerusama.
I'm surprised they have the gall to insult Funimation when they use their awkward Nakama translations. Even back in the beginning I remember thinking how strange it sounded for Luffy to be going around saying "I want her/him to be my crewmate" and then Funi's official release comes out and it's "I want him to join my crew". Is it really that hard? That sounds so much better!
And of course I think their Binks' Sake translation towers over fan efforts (no offence to the likes of Yibis which I find far better than K-F) and certainly doesn't give off a "Speed Sub" vibe, that's just plain Ass-talking.
Anyway, yeah just had to pop in and say that
Well living in the US and happily content with the Simulcast, I'm not fretting. I just worry about those Non-US English Speakers (UK, New Zealand, etc)
But then Non-US guys on GAF have been able to get by it just fine with Hotspot Shield, so I hear.
Just out of curiosity, what are the chances that HD Raws might be ripped from these? Don't get me wrong, if Funimation brought these out here, I'd buy them first thing (hell I wouldn't mind importing and watching the likes of Movie 6 RAW), but as it stands right now, porting K-F's subs to an HD Raw and converting it to a PS3 friendly format would sure be an awesome substitute before official BDs hit.
Just had myself a huge Simulcast marathon. Starting with 402 to 416. Amazing stuff.
Looking at Youtube clips of the same episodes online, the fansubs sound incredibly odd to me now with their direct Unchanged-Japanese translations.
As for movie 5, I haven't seen it in a while. I thought the colors looked a little flushed, though I may be wrong. Movies 1-4 though were dark, especially movie 1's color.
Well I'm not touting myself as an expert. The music and the backgrounds really stuck out for me whenever I see Movie 5.
