Editorial Reviews

The epic showdown between Goku and Frieza reaches its climax as planet Namek crumbles beneath their feet! In the aftermath of battle, neither fighter is anywhere to be found, but Earth’s few remaining heroes have much bigger problems. A mysterious and powerful stranger known only as Trunks arrives from the future with a warning: the Androids are coming, they take no prisoners, and even Goku – wherever he may be – is no match for their kind!

Format: Blu-ray
I have been a loyal fan of Dragon Ball Z since I was younger and watching the original run on Toonami and on VHS. I drifted away from DBZ for many years but have been an anime enthusiast ever since DBZ got me hooked.

Dragon Ball Z Kai caught my eye for several reasons: mainly being remastered yet retaining the original 4:3 aspect ratio (unlike the previous two versions that chopped part of the format to be presented in pseudo widescreen). I have faithfully purchased the Kai series (the titles released so far) on Blu-Ray. Here are my thoughts:

This part takes us through the Trunks and Android sagas up to the Cell saga (can't wait for Sept 15th!)

Technical stuff:
The ratio is kept to the original 4:3 aspect. Some animations have been cleaned and even re-animated (in the case of some of the lighting effects from ki attacks and power-ups). Some of the re-animated shots look like something from American Saturday morning cartoons rather than anime, but these instances were very rare. The two that stood out were in the previous volume anyway.

The sound is vastly superior to the previous versions. The English dub is improved and they aren't afraid to get a little dirty (they swear often, but not in an offensive way. They just yell 'you bastard' a lot). Though the few uses of swearing is in line with the more literal translation. Also, the American voice acting is a lot better this time through. Most of the lines have been slightly changed to stick closer to the actual translation. The Japanese voice acting is the original (highly amusing in some roles) though it has also been cleaned up a bit so that static is removed.

The music is the original Japanese score, just re-digitized for this release.

I'm going to make this short and sweet. These 13 episodes are my favorite part of the entire Dragon Ball series. Trunks, The Androids, and lots of Super Saiyan action!

My take on Kai: Awesome. Everything I have ever wanted out of this series put into 98 episodes. A good amount of action, and it doesn't deviate from the story or have lots of filler. I give some serious props for Toei for making a great series.

Not to mention in HD! It's so much cleaner and clear when it's in HD! I tried watching it on Nicktoons (Which is only in standard in my area) and it's just not the same... I will never go back to watching standard definition for this show, or anything animated.

Dragon Ball Z Kai receives a nice change of pace after the very action-heavy pace of Part 4. Now we get a much welcome amount of humor with the discovery of Trunk's parentage, and a very funny scene with Chi-Chi. Akira Toriyama is very good at writing humor with his characters and glad we got a better fusion (get it?) of action and humor. A major change to the series itself is the music. Kai had its own musical score until it was removed for copyright infringement. So, they reedited the original Japanese music from Dragon Ball Z into Kai. It took some getting used to at first but on the whole, the original music fits in better in my opinion. I think the copyrighted Kai music was better at big fights than the original score, but the original is better for a more variety of scenes. I also noticed that on the broadcast, earlier episodes' music was also changed to the original. Does this mean that the discs with the copyrighted music will become rare??? Of course, the blu ray picture is the best this series can possibly look and I absolutely love the new dub. If you've been buying the Kai sets then you need to definitely buy this one too. If you can get past the new music you should really enjoy these episodes. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the some actual special features like in Part 3 would be nice. Look forward to Dragon Ball Z Kai Part 6!

* Subtitles: English

The image quality is stunning as always, great to look at (with new footage too), the episodes are now more action packed than before because of the elimination of filler it had.

Music on Dragon Ball Kai, this is an interesting piece of the set to talk about now.

The music used on the episodes are from the Dragon Ball Z series, which is by, Shunsuke Kikuchi.

Regardless of the replacement music for the episodes, the NEP's (Next Episode Preview) and eye-catch still uses the original BGM from DBK.

At times the tracks used became a little repetitive due to the fact that only 100 DBZ BGM's were utilized for Dragon Ball Kai, however, it did not bother me and I completely loved it.

Finally, this part covers the whole Human Artificial saga, Cell's is up next (Part Six).

Next Dragon Ball Kai (FUNimation) Parts:
* Part Six: 66 to 77
* Part Seven: 78 to 90
* Part Eight: 91 to 98

Longtime fans of DBZ seem to have mixed feelings about Dragon Ball Z Kai. The reasons are very obvious. Kai cuts out a lot of the filler material that was in the original 291 episodes (they've now cut it down to a mere 98). Part 5 deals primarily with the last moments of Planet Namek and shortly after that the beginning of the Trunks Saga all the way into the middle of the Android Saga. Part 5 encompasses what are without a doubt some of my favorite episodes in the entire series. My only complaint is that they omit the entire Garlic Jr. Saga. I believe this was done for two reasons:
1) It was considered irrelevant filler
2) DBZ Kai does its absolute best to stick as close to the manga as possible and to my understanding the saga was not present there.

Regardless this is a minor complaint because the original series is still readily available in both the HD Remasters and the Dragon Boxes. DBZ Kai features completely reworked English dub which is immediately noticeable by fans of the original cast. This of course really comes down to opinion. I personally enjoyed the new voice cast, and some of the original cast does make a return. I also know others that I grew up watching the show with that felt the opposite. Another noticeable change is that the show features far more action with a lot less breaks in between (just as it advertises). I will say however this is NOT the version that aired on Nickelodeon per se. There's quite a bit of language as well as blood. Nothing too over the top of course but I can promise you it wasn't on Nickelodeon at 2 o'clock in the afternoon that's for sure. This is definitely one of the most 'uncut' versions I've seen.
