Editorial Reviews

After learning that Frieza murdered his father and destroyed his home planet, Goku takes aim at the putrid purple monster in the greatest grudge match the galaxy has ever seen! The bruises multiply at a furious rate as the two warriors trade blows in a battle that literally destroys planet Namek. As the slugfest approaches a standstill, Frieza forever silences Goku’s closest friend – sending Earth’s hero into a Super Saiyan rage that threatens to obliterate them both!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Made Better March 16, 2011
By Stryl
Along with the obvious bonus of less filler, Dragon Ball Z Kai has been re-dubbed, and I would like to say it has been superbly done. Not long ago, I re-watched much of the HD-released Funimation dub, and I have been able to compare the two. DBZ Kai has kept the flavor of the show and put much more depth into it. Three episodes into Disc One of Part Four, you will see what I mean. The new Japanese music is wonderful and actually adds a great deal of emotion to otherwise flat scenes. Despite what you may remember from the old days of DBZ, this show is no longer for little kids. (Sure, it's still a cartoon, but it's certainly not Y7)

Oh, and the fact that Goku actually curses now is just amusing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic battle, epic dub, condensed to near perfection August 21, 2011
By PhilG
At last - Dragon Ball Z Kai Part Four. I'd been collecting the Kai DVDs and working my way through the episodes, and had been looking forward to this set for a few reasons.

First of all, let me say that I've been continually impressed with FUNimation's dub throughout this whole experience, and have stuck with it as my language choice. This is different for me because I'm usually a subtitle kind of person (direct translations, less silly voices, etc) but FUNimaton has surprised me with how good their English language track is, so much so that I feel I need to keep 'checking' it to see if they stay on track with their translations. Why? Well, if you'll allow me to sound a bit fanboyish for a moment, their old 'Z' dub was so monumentally bad that I want to make sure they're atoning for their 'sins' and whatnot. They've got a lot to make up for, darn it.

Anyway, there are two scenes in particular on this set that I just had to see if FUNimation got right the second time around. The first is a scene where (without spoiling anything) something very significant happens to Vegeta. FUNimation handled it rather badly in their old dub, rewriting and mistranslating dialogue to the point where it probably misled some people into drawing the wrong conclusions. FUNimation did a superb job with it this time and didn't stray from the original script once. I'm impressed. Check one.

Then there is the matter of Goku's Super Saiyan transformation. After fighting Freeza and outclassing him for an episode, Goku gives a small declaration speech that was also mistranslated last time. In the old dub it was some "I am the light in the darkness!" superhero speech crap that was as over the top and ridiculous as a Ginyu Force pose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good July 1, 2011
By Nobody
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Growing up as a DBZ fanatic, I had to have this for obvious reasons. It's a great idea for them to make Kai to add create a new fan base of the series. Overall I enjoyed this collection, but I did have some gripes. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is not perfect; in most of the scenes with King Kai, the audio had problems where it would cut out for most of the scene. Being an avid fan of the series it was frustrating for me. But, it did not have that large of an impact on the whole of it. So, if you are thinking about buying this, I would say do it; and if you are looking at getting into the series, do it, because Goku is the greatest hero ever created.

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:

Part four takes us through the remainder of the Freiza saga. Let's just say this is probably the most action packed set of episodes in the entire series except maybe the cell games saga (and a brief bit of crazy action during the Vegeta: Cell: Android: Piccolo fights leading up to Perfect Cell).

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 a 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.
