If they don't get the Widescreen masters, won't sections of the picture be cut off to fit into a 4:3 aspect ratio? I think that a lot of people won't buy the sets if part of the picture gets cut off.
We can judge it this way: If other countries did not get the widescreen masters, then we most likely won't either. Why would we be the exception? Although, it would be nice if we were.
so where are these people that wouldn't buy any dvd's because they all KNEW that funimation won't make any money and will stop making one piece dvd's soon
i remember so many people saying that without tv, one piece is doomed and dvd's will fail and they will stop so don't waste money buying them
Well, FUNimation might wind up paying extra for the correct aspect ratio.
Who knows what hoops FUNimation jumped through to get standard definition masters of Dragon Ball Kai in 4:3. Even Japans single DVD release was cropped into 16:9.
Well, I guess if Funi is willing to go the extra mile, then we could get the widescreen masters.
Yeah, for the first time in a while I'm going to be as picky as everyone else here: I want my One Piece Season 4 in widescreen!
when did they start? was it like when zoro fought shipcutter t-bone?
HD/Widescreen episodes started at Episode 207 at the beginning of the Davey Back Fights.
oh wait i'm thinking HD
I dunno. It's not gonna be a very big deal for me, but if you guys want it so badly, then by all means fight for it. But if Toei won't give them to Funi, then don't penalize Fun for it.
I'm positive that we'll get 229 on in Widescreen, that I'm not afraid of.
What does scare me is the fact that 207-228 were only released on Fullscreen in Japan, and that means Toei could potentially float FUNi the fullscreen masters only for those episodes. Toei are sometimes jerks about that...
Nothing here for now.

While I want widescreens starting from 207, I will not complain too much if we get fullscreen masters for those early episodes that were released in 4:3 in Japan.
But if we start getting cropped masters for Enies Lobby +, I have to admit that I would be pissed. Royally. But at the same time, I would continue to buy the sets. But I'd probably just only buy them when they are on sale in that case.
Well, I guess I'm jumping the gun saying that this early. Just throwing that out there. Everyone has their own opinions on such picky matters I believe, but in my eyes cropped is editing in an uncut set.
