The Legendary Z Reborn! For the first time in history, experience the legendary Z as the master intended: bigger, faster, stronger, and packed with the pulverizing power to blow your puny minds! Beef up your collection with this manga-centric, fresh take on Akira Toriyama's original vision, featuring more action than you can handle, revitalized animation, and an amped-up audio experience that will make your ears beg for mercy! The last descendants of an evil race of warriors known as the Saiyans are on a collision course with Earth, and Goku - the strongest fighter on the planet - is all that stands between humanity and extinction. To save his friends and the world he loves, Goku must travel to a realm from which few return, but should he survive, he'll discover the power to face the villainous Saiyan warlord - Prince Vegeta.

Format: DVD
The exciting action-packed anime series "Dragon Ball Z" is back with the final HD version of "Dragon Ball Z Kai" (volume seven) as the safety of the world rests on the shoulders of young Gohan, as he takes on the evil Perfect Cell.

Having grown up with "Dragon Ball Z" and during my teenage years visiting the local Japanese video rental store and always in heavy anticipation of what was being shown on television in Japan that week and waiting the two weeks it would arrive in the US and watching it in Japanese, despite not knowing what was being said, I enjoyed the series tremendously.

The main protagonist Son Goku was Japan's equivalent to America's Superman. I'm sure the juxtaposition of both Superman and Dragonball can be seen as a baby from other planet comes to Earth, the baby growing up to becoming a boy with tremendous strength and abilities and raised by a loving person who instilled good in his heart.

Granted, Goku's original mission when landing on Earth was to destroy humanity but learning kindness towards people, nature and animals, he became a hero that protected all that he loved from any evil. But most importantly, Goku was a character that was far from perfect. He was a character that was always learning about people, enjoying life but most of all, setting a goal to becoming stronger and developing his skills in order to protect the people and the planet that he loves.

I was captivated by the original "Dragon Ball" series (which featured Goku as a child) and later with "Dragon Ball Z" featuring Goku as an adult.

Based on how Kai kept building up Gohan's potential (I thought better than the original episodes on VHS and DVD), the fact this show ended with Super Saiyan 2 Gohan as the most powerful fighter in the (assuming) galaxy makes total sense. I don't think SS2 Gohan vs. Perfect Cell is as great of a fight as others do (Best fight is still Goku vs. Frieza), but the final stand-off with the Kamehamehas and Piccolo, Yamcha, Tien, Krillin trying to help no matter how futile it will be was great stuff. I get why the show ends, but a Kai Volume 2 of the Buu Saga I can't wait for (Probably 4 parts I'd imagine)

Dragon ball Kai, its real name ie there is no Z in the title like Funimation decided to advertise this as, is the managa cut of the anime. It follows the manga pretty strongly by removing filler and increasing the pacing of the story. Volume 8 is the final Kai episode collection. The Buu saga was not originally intended to be in the manga, so it is unlikely to receive the Kai treatment. If it does, it will be a few years.

Animation has been cleaned up, colors look fantastic, and audio is clear.

Kai officially ends here (as far as I know) and that is a shame. Nothing after Cell. There is no Other World Saga, or anything to do with Buu. That being said, Kai is great. A lot more action than the TV version, but I sometimes miss the humorous bits that I used to think slowed down the show.

I'm a huge Dragon Ball fan, and I have been for years. I've collected all sorts of extra material like the daizenshu's and japanese only released movies and tv shows by the same animation studio. To me, this is the real end of the series. Mr. Toriyama was always writing by the seat of his pants, and he made it work! I know he received some suggestions from his editor, but if you watch Dragon Ball Z from the first episode to now it fits a good narrative arc with character development.

Even Mr. Toriyama himself intended for this to be the end! When you watch the episodes after the Cell Saga ends it just doesn't feel right anymore. Plot holes, sudden halfway plot switches, aborted arcs, continuity drifting and details getting confused, and that happens with long runners!

It's like diminishing returns, or knowing when to really quit when you're ahead. I admit to liking some aspects of the whole Buu saga but overall I don't think it's as strong a narrative because you have too much going on, too many characters and too much to keep track of. More isn't necessarily better, it's quality over quantity. After this I say jump onto the Bojack and second Brolly movies for an epilogue.

Ending with the Cell Saga. Watching it is like reading the manga (mostly). They're making the Buu Saga in the meantime, so I can't wait for that either. Amazing.
