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 two features episodes 42-83, 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 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.

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.

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.

Given all the past dramatic turnabouts and FUNimation's rocky DBZ history, the Dragon Boxes has proven once again its overall superiority of the original DBZ series in DVD format.

PICTURE: Fantastic remastering from the original 16mm film from Toei. The "genuine" copies, so to speak. Not much different from what I've said in my previous review. There is one minor gripe, though. I've noticed some shaky cam movement in some of the episodes. I don't know if this has do with some frame alignment issues that existed in the original films or a remastering error. In any case, it's a minor issue that doesn't greatly affect the quality of the picture. When it does happen, it can become quite glaring, but it's over just as quickly.

AUDIO: The Japanese mono is a great as it could ever be. Shunsuke Kikuchi's operatic 80s Kung-Fu/Shaw Brothers-like score compliments the age and content of the material. Often offering the same or similar pieces on a loop episode after episode, it can becoming a bit glaring, but it suits the material just fine. There's enough "breathing space", so to speak, between each piece that the mood it evokes in each particular scene is quite effective. Examples being when Vegeta is told by Kiwi/Cui that Freeza is after the Dragon Balls in Namek or when Vegeta is closing in on Gohan and Kuririn's/Krillin's ki suspecting something's afoot. The Japanese cast, whether you love or hate Masako Nozawa's performance as Son Goku, is strongly and consistently supported by a much stronger supporting cast. Nods go to Ryo Horikawa as Vegeta and Ryusei Nakao as Freeza. Their evil characteristics are perfectly portrayed and the interaction between them is often snide and tense.

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

Dragon Box 2 new available for $57 on Amazon
I ordered it last month and it still hasn't shipped and now says out of stock. Probably was never there in the first place.
