FUNimation to Released DBZ on BD
FUNimation has announced plans to release the 1989 Dragon Ball Z anime television series on domestic Blu-ray disc. Dallas-based ANDTRANSFER is remastering the animation footage in 1080p resolution frame-by-frame from Japanese 16mm source footage. “Our purpose was to restore the series as accurately as possible, to what it must have been like to see it when it was originally mastered, and preserve the charm of the animation,” says FUNimation CEO Gen Fukunaga. The bilingual domestic Dragon Ball Z Level 1.1 BD will be released on November 8.
ANDTRANSFER is the company that produced FUNimation’s “restored” remaster contained on the “orange brick” DVD sets.
