Editorial Reviews

Originally produced in limited quantities in Japan, the incredibly rare Dragon Box has long been the ultimate prize for the most avid Dragon Ball Z collectors. Now this coveted collection has been reproduced for the first time in the United States, giving hardcore fans the definitive Dragon Ball Z experience.

The battle to harness the power of the seven Dragon Balls explodes in vivid detail like never before. The Dragon Box features over 40 uncut episodes, remastered and restored frame by frame, rendering the legendary action in pristine clarity. Each episode is presented in Japanese with the complete opening and closing credits and includes the original episode previews.

Truly the essential edition for Dragon Ball Z purists, this set isn’t an addition to your archive – it is your archive. Your wish is finally granted. The Dragon Box is here.

I own Volumes One & Two and will pre-order this set as well.

The second difference is that the Japanese set was mastered with a duplicated mono track, so even though it appears to be stereo, it's really just mono "technically."

Each booklet has an episode guide, and additional art in them as well.

This dragon box finishes off the freza saga and goes through the android saga leading up to the arrival of cell.

I love this item and it was worth all the money

Volume 3 of the Dragon Box contains episodes 85-125. Each episode has the English dubbed version, and the original Japanese audio. The Dragon Box was originally produced in Japan, and made its way to the US years later. These sets are very produced in limited quantities, and are now out of print. Each volume has 6 disks, and a very collectible cases and booklet. Each booklet has an episode guide, and additional art in them as well. It's important to note that this release has the fan favorite ratio of 4:3, and not 16:9, like in the new Blu-Ray release. If I had to choose one or the other, it would be this one.

This release, as with the previous releases, is absolutely FANtastic. FAN being the DBZ fan who wants the best possible video quality, bar none (except maybe the now canceled 1.1 and 1.2 remastering on Blu Ray). The unfortunate part for fans of the English dub is that what is included is only the 5.1 track with the Japanese music and effects, not the US made music. I honestly believe dropping an English track on the sets was an afterthought for FUNimation, simply because everything about the set is catering towards those fans who want what the original Dragon Boxes had.

In terms of the included episodes, you have episodes 85-126, which brings the rest of the Freeza arc (started in set 2), the Garlic Jr arc (complete) and begins the Artificial Human arc, that preceeded the Cell arc.

What you receive is the original series, as it was originally intended to be seen, with the option for English language dialog or Japanese dialog (with or without subtitles, of course). What this means is, you have every opening animation, all the content, all the mid-show title cards, all of the endings AND all of the next episode previews intact. Nothing is missing (well, some video extras from the Japanese Dragon Box are excluded from all of the FUNi sets, but what matters to me IS the show).

Video:

Video is taken directly from the Japanese Dragon Boxes. The show was painstakingly remastered from the ground up and it shows. There is less cell jitter. Frames with glue damage (you see it as a white streak along the top of the screen) are placed higher up to almost completely eliminate the glue from appearing. Dust and dirt is removed. Scratches are non-existent. In short, it looks simply amazing. The best it has ever looked.

The dragon box volume 3 is a great collection for dragonball z fans. the case is very sturdy and will properly protect and display the DVDs. This volume covers ALL of Goku's battle with Freiza,the Garlic Jr. saga, and all the way up to the 1st episode that Androids 19 and 20 are in.

I love my dragonbox to death. The case is just amazing, I can't stop looking at it everytime I see it. The other big thing i love about this collection is the next episode previews. I love being able to watch this footage that i had never seen before. If you are a dragonball z fan and have the money to buy this collection.BUY IT!!

What is left to be said about these sets that hasn't already been said? I own Volumes One & Two and will pre-order this set as well.

Yes, it's more of the same:
*No extras (unless you count the booklet or trailers)
*No ENG Dub BGM
*42 EPIC episodes, spanning the end of the "FREEZA" arc, the "GARLIC Jr." arc, the "TRUNKS/MECHA FREEZA" arc and the first episode of the "ARTIFICIAL
HUMAN" arc
*Superior picture quality compared to the "season" sets/"Orange Brick" release
*Superior audio quality compared to the "season" sets/"Orange Brick" release
*Another gorgeous booklet containing episode summaries and other "extras"
*PLUS: Freeza just looks damn creepy ^_^

As a fan, I couldn't ask for more. I don't need useless ENG voice actor commentary or a look at their recording process. I don't need JPN eye drop commercials or TOONAMI promos. I don't need "clean" opening/ending animations (fans of the JPN version provided on FUNi's releases have had them for years, anyway). And I certainly don't need an ENG dub track. I'd be fine with just subtitles. After all, you don't hear me complain that the "ORIGINAL" ENG dub for episodes 1-53/67 aren't on these sets, further demonstrating how these aren't the "DEFINITIVE EDITION". But I digress...

So, for all the people who don't want to buy these sets because their precious ENG BGM isn't included, I truly am sorry. Neither the "Orange Brick" or DBox can truly be the "definitive edition/version/master/blah blah blah" that FUNi keeps proclaiming them to be until Faulconer's BGM is included. But as for myself, I finally have my "definitive edition/version/master/blah blah blah", and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

The Dragon Box is the definitive release of Dragon Ball Z in the U.S., and they should be in every die-hard fan's collection of DVDs.

It is great to have the whole season in one box. And each box adds together with the other season to create a great picture that looks nice on a shelf. The price was great and it got to us very quickly. Actually ordered another Dragonball Z set and will probably order the next season when available.Worth every penny!

need big help
I have all nine season sets, and the picture quality is "okay" in my opinion. I also have the first three Dragon Boxes and the picture quality is much better, from the colors to the fact that it's not cropped on the tops and bottom. There are some videos on Youtube that compare the... Read More

Which one should I get?
Get the Blue Bricks first. They are exactly the way they were aired on Cartoon Network, except they are 100% uncut. The only footage you don't receive on these sets are the next episode previews and a couple opening/closing animations, but we've never had these on previous releases, either.... Read More
