By weekly do you mean a long running series and not one that just runs for 13 or so episodes?
Pokemon at one point had animation for episodes starting something like 8 or 9 months ahead of when they aired. It's around 6 months now though, which is still crazy good.
For comparison Super season 2 had animation start 4 months ahead of when the first episode airs, which is pretty great, but not ridiculous like Pokemon.
Oh, so that's how the last few seasons have looked so ridiculously good (and consistent)! "Black magic" problem: solved :P

i went back to the future trunks stuff after TOP and it looked bad in comparison.

those recap arcs were actual garbage released to the public and all the shit the show got at the beginning was no hyperbole.
yeah, even the trunks arc didn't look great except for a few standout episodes.

ToP really made the rest of the show look bad and ToP wasn't even perfect at all.

....Super is such a hard thing to rank.
I enjoyed it, but retrospectively man so much was bad.

It would've been great to get the Future Trunks arc with ToP's animation and less weird pacing with all the retreats and repeats, while maybe getting a few more characters involved. That would've mixed the best of everything imo.

It's leaked out that at the Italian licensor event July was confirmed yet again. Can't wait for Toei's THIRD denial

I think his paneling in the recent chapters has been pretty decent.
I am so bitter that they chose him to do the manga instead of others who are actually good like dragon garrow lee.

The difference in style and beauty is just too big. Season 2 needs to come ASAP (well, not really, because proper scheduling and stuff, but you know what I mean).
We're just 3 months away! We're also likely just 3 weeks away from the announcement, unless they announce earlier than my guess.

I'd pay that much if it looked as good as some of the screencaps I've seen of what I assume were japanese releases. That doesn't look very impressive though

Nice that it's in 4:3 but the video quality looks like shit. It's just the season set footage in 4:3. Not gonna pay for garbage.

Why did the Level Sets have to be cancelled, those looked a million times better than this crap.

It’s the blu ray sets in 4:3

These mother fuckers really don’t care. Treat the fans like complete idiots every time. “LOOK ITS 4:3 LIKE YOU ASKED, NOW BUY IT STUPID”

I can’t fucking fathom they’d seek out the broadcast audio. Probably took the shitty audio they had, pumped them through some audacity filter and gonna market it as THE CLEAREST DRAGON BALL Z HAS EVER SOUNDED IN 12.1 SURROUND SOUND

The Japanese audio on every home release has been super low quality, but a fan had the original broadcast audio and released it online 2 or so years back.
How badly has Toei bungled their master tapes that a 25-30-year-old fan recording off tv has higher-quality audio? :lol

What do you guys mean by broadcast audio?
After the initial broadcast in Japan, Toei destroyed the original audio master, so the only audio Toei have is the crappy mono audio that's stored on the film reel. That's why when you watch a clip of the Japanese dub it sounds like it was recorded 30 years earlier than it actually was.

Thing is though that thanks to some home recordings of the original broadcast the high quality audio now exists online.

if it was like this

Sexy Grain and all then I would consider shilling 300+ for said set

but that footage shown for this collector's edition seems not to be the case
