The Dragon Box two features episodes 42-83, remastered and restored frame by frame, rendering the legendary action in pristine clarity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some people need to understand something November 30, 2009
By J. Paul
Okay, we all know that the dub score isn't on this set. I am just as disappointed as other dub fans, but you have to understand, Funi is aiming these sets at another audience for once and wants to preserve quality. So just shut up and accept it instead of giving 1-star reviews to a product that wasn't meant for you in the first place. I don't necessarily agree with Funi's decisions and would rather have a release that satisfies all audiences, but regardless, we've been catered to for years so we should let the fans of the Japanese version have a release they can be proud of. We're lucky we got a dub in the first place as Funi made this release so that fans of the Japanese version can just watch the show as it was meant to be seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest dragon ball Z release ever! February 21, 2010
By TRUST
I used to be one of those individuals that would criticized the dragon box because of the lack of Bruce Faulconer music and because the price was significantly higher. Since I'm a fan of the series I couldn't help myself and I found my self pre-ordering the first Dragon Box to find out what the big deal was. I knew deep down that I wasn't gonna be to happy with the Japanese music.

Once I received the box I realized how incredibly well packaged everything comes. It already made the orange bricks look cheap and I had yet to open the box. The dragon box was about the size of two orange bricks (remastered sets) and the smaller boxes inside were beautifully build. The booklet that's included with the set is very handy when watching the episodes and its hardcover and not held together with a single staple like in the orange bricks.

The quality of the video is superb, its near perfect and the colors are beautiful. I found my self looking at all the vivid colors and seeing detail I had not seen before. It was truly like watching a different version of Dragon ball Z. This is the way Dragon ball Z should have been released from the start!

Now on to the music, when I first started watching the series I wanted the American music! Since I couldn't have it, I just stop complaining and decided to watch it and appreciate it. I found my self loving the Japanese music. Before I knew it I just couldn't go back to the American version. It's almost like watching an entirely new show. Try the Japanese music and it will grow on you after each episode.

I also want to mention that I did own the orange Bricks, but now that I own the First dragon box I've sold all the orange bricks on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you once again, FUNimation February 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
This DBZ Dragon Box series is an exciting thing. I've been a fan of DBZ since I first saw it on syndicated television in the mid to late '90s. (You could say I was a fan of the series even earlier, about '95 or '96 or so, since I also watched the first thirteen episodes of Dragon Ball when that first aired in the States.)

Ever since becoming a fan of DBZ and having just around that time discovered the Internet, I searched for the series on Yahoo! and came up with a website which displayed many of the changes made in the US--all of the censorship, reworked music, and all of that. Since then, I've been clamoring for Dragon Ball Z, uncut and subbed with the original music.

I thought FUNimation were going to deliver with the season sets they released a few years ago, but they botched the job entirely by "remastering" the video in the most awful way imaginable: in addition to the drastically cropped framing (to create a faux-widescreen ratio--I'm BIG on original aspect ratio as it affects cinematography and composition), careless and unwatched DVNR was applied, a process which is intended to eliminate dirt and scratch marks that are present on the film being scanned, but when used so carelessly, it can do devastating things to video, especially animation, where lines of art are "erased" (that is, the lines are read by the program as scratch marks, so it takes color and other visual information surrounding the lines and then covers over the lines with this information, causing lines of art to disappear, particularly quick/fast-paced animation). To make matters worse, the colors and lighting are all blown-out and faded. (I'm not too familiar with technical terms; this could be due to contrast boosting, but I'm uncertain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent DBZ release...BUT.... August 29, 2011
Ok, so I put this review together not to discuss the actual quality of the show. We're all well aware that this is the most concrete Dragon Ball Z release to date. I do however want to warn you guys that the overlapping disc setup can cause potentially disc damaging scuffs. Not scratches, but it seems that they get scuffed from chaffing in the cases. I had to buy a secondary copy of Volume 2 (all my others with the exception of 6, which amazon replaced for me with no problems were fine). My best advice to prospective buyers is to go out and maybe buy a pack of jewel cases and store them separately from the actual boxes so they don't have to share the same crawlspace. I have all the Dragon Boxes neatly displayed on my shelf with the jewel cases/discs right beside them and have had no problems since.
With this particular volume no longer in print (so it would seem), I figured I would give a heads up to all the collector types out there who do their best to keep their DBZ collection as close to pristine as possible.

I think it's safe to say Volume Two is officially out of print.

Not going to happen.

Toei's restored footage was done only in standard definition.

You also have to take in the fact that Toei already has an HD-ready release with Dragon Ball Kai. I don't think Funimation would want a Blu-ray release of Z competing with Kai.

who has pre order
The version you have are illegal bootlegs. The video quality probably won't be as good considering that they probably stuffed more episodes on the disc that is good for bitrate. Not to mention the subs are awful. If you want to upgrade, I'd definitely recommend picking up these releases... Read More
