Editorial Reviews

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.

I have been watching DBZ for about 10 years now, and I am happy that I can finally watch every episode and not get bored from all the fillers and stand-offs from the original.

Likes-
New intro
Fixing of the scenes that were damaged over the years
Taking out the fillers
Better English dialogue
Excellent sound quality
Pretty much exactly like the manga
New animated breaks in between parts of an episode that actually change as the episodes progress.

Dislikes-
No marathon mode

Part 3 leaves you wanting more of the action! This actually comes with a small extra unlike the other two parts; An interview of some of the English voices from the show. I can not wait for Part 4 to come out, the final battle between Goku and Frieza!

As Vegeta battles with Krillin and Gohan for control of the Dragon Balls an unforseen circumstance forces them to team up or die!

Quick recap for those who don't know about Kai: DBK is the 20th aniversary version of DBZ. That annoying filler that would make entire story arcs last forever and lead to the nickname Drag-on Ball Z? Totally gone and replaced with a remastered version that has a much quicker pace. This pace favors those that could never get into the original DBZ anime due to it's length as well as manga purists that don't care for anything filler. Animation is improved and cleaned up all around with the occasional new clip to help make up for damaged film. As far as the cuts and animation quality goes if you've seen the first two parts you should know what to expect in this area.

As with part one and two script wise the Japanese version is about the same despite everything being rerecorded for 2009-2011. Meanwhile the English version sees it's best and most accurate translation ever with a good portion of the Funimation voice cast returning. Even if you are a purist that didn't really care for the English voices in any form at least try to watch it in English at least once. Despite the occassional incident of Funi using the English attack names (such as Solar Flare and Spirit Bomb) for the most part they stick with the Japanese names (Taiyoken and Makankosappo). The set itself cover the battle with the Ginyu Force as well as the early part of the battle with Frieza.

If you don't own any of the season box sets or Dragon Boxes of the original Z then do yourself a favor and pick this up! Just please bear in mind that the DVD/Blu-Ray release of Kai is NOT the edited version on Nicktoons. This release is NOT intended for children and is totally uncut.

Please note, that what I am about to say in this review is strictly my opinion, if you disagree, that's fine, you can comment below with your opinion, and we could discuss it. Now, on to the review:

Now, this is just my opinion, but when I saw the original Dragon Ball Z, I absolutely just couldn't STAND the Namek saga(excluding Freeza). It was so slow, and drawn out due to all the filler. WAY too many random Bulma moments if you asked me.

But thank Kami for Dragon Ball(Z)Kai! Now, the Namek saga's is one of my favorites, because I can now ENJOY the saga, instead of constantly going back to whatever Roshi's doing on Earth at that certain time, or what kind of trouble Bulma's getting into.

This set will cover episodes 27-39 of the rebirth of the world's greatest anime- Dragon Ball Z! On the last set, we were introduced to Freeza, Zarbon, and Dodoria. On this set we will see the arrival of Goku at planet Namek, and the Ginyu Force! FUNimation Entertainment is not holding back on these releases, as the sript is outstanding, swearing and all!

I was a little disappointed that Freeza didn't get the cover for this release, but hopefully he will be on Part Four!

This will make a great Christmas present, as it comes out in December!
Support DBZ by buying these sets!

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 three takes us through the middle of the Namek/Freiza saga. Spoiler free: These episodes cover the time from the post Zarbon Vegeta battle and Gohan's pinching of a certain item up to the second transformation of Freiza (episdoes 27 to 39). For those familiar with the series, this is when things really start heating up. For those unfamiliar, let's just say things start getting pretty crazy at this point.

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.
