#13428 After a little bit of research, yeah this does fall into a grey area of the fan-labor laws. It should be acceptable under the rules fair-use to avoid any kind of copyright infringement. But sadly I think you're right. While we probably could approach Petrea and Kate and Matthew and everyone about it, it would likely ruffle some feathers with Funi and beyond that I'm not sure they'd even be interested in resurrecting their old roles. I've got a legal contacts that I can double check with, but I'd be willing to bet that route is off the roster for now.

I'll be downloading Daz3D tonight and playing around with it just to see what we can do with the program.

I've got my fanfiction that I'm still working on, but before this gets too far off the ground I'd like to see if we can't put together a rough script or at least a direction for the story to go in so we have a jumping point as it were. So, on that note what do you all think would be a better option; A) A continuation of OVA3 where we can finally close up some of the gaping holes in the canon, B) go in the opposite direction and try to forget that most of that happened since the entire series of events was supposed to have been wiped from the timeline, or C) go completely off the wall and head along the Y access and turn the world upside down? I'm calling out to everyone here, not just the writers, where would you like to see this go?

#13434 I've got some more to add on this but I've got to run to work atm.


In short aim small and get like a two minute skit done then worry about an episode.

#13436 That's more or less the idea for now. I'm going to get the Daz3D program and play around with it, try to make up some quickie animations for the characters and play around with posing before we get heavy into anything close to full-length.

#13438 I think Patu i'm leaning more towards options b and c. No matter what we do we cannot rescue and repair OVA 3 and i would much prefer it to be set in the universe timeline as i think it'd be easier to string an episode onto it then the OVA's (and to include kiyone in it).

#13449 Found someone on youtube who seems to be doing a similar thing but fro dragon ball. Maybe he might answer a few questions or give us advice on our little project.

#19848 Dragonball Absalon is amazing, I need to check in on him again sometime to see if he's made some significant progress last time I checked (sounds like he's gotten a lot of positive feedback and support). I love what he seems to be doing with his approach of @#$* power levels, throw them out the window and let's focus on characters and plot instead of exactness of how many planets each one of them can bench-press at any given time.

Anyway, hopefully someday we can get the ball rolling on this, but we (the staff) are at work on a few other projects/chores atm, but by all means if anyone wants to try to get things started on this, go for it! (it can't hurt to send people pm's with innocent questions now can it?)
