Editorial Reviews

Goku - Earth's greatest champion - bravely defends humanity against an invading race of warriors known as the Saiyans. When the mighty hero falls, his young son Gohan rises up to face the very villains who murdered his father. The battle rages through space to Planet Namek, where Gohan and his overmatched allies risk their lives to defeat the Saiyan warlord Vegeta - and the monster known as Frieza!

DBZ Kai has no fillers and thats why i dont know why some people dont like it.
Enrique
The video quality is also perfect with its 4:3 ratio and clean looking picture that luckily FUNimation did not touch like the other releases.
Chris
Look, I LOVE the original DBZ (and Dragon Ball, though this is primarily about DBZ./DBZ Kai).

Here we go again! Another Season One Release for Dragon Ball Z Kai. Why you ask? Simply because Funimation, American Distributor, messed up the first release of this season. In March 2011 a scandal broke out regrading the Original Musical Score for the Show composed by Kenji Yamamoto. Shortly after Kenji's score for the show was completely removed and replaced with the Original Dragon Ball Z score by Shunsuke Kikuchi. With this issue the original release date for Dragon Ball Z Kai Part 5 was pushed back. When it was released the set contained the replaced score.
As expected Funimation dished out the "Season Sets" for the show, most likely to replace the "Parts sets", with the release of "Dragon Ball Z Kai Season One" back in October last year. Season one was was released to replace Dragon Ball Z Kai Parts 1 & 2, but with the Shunsuke Kikuchi musical score. However shortly after it's release many who bought the product found that the set did not contain the Shunsuke Kikuchi, but still containing the Kenji Yamamoto score despite indicating on the back of the box that it would have the replaced score. After many re-stocks and call backs from the product it was obvious that Funimation had clearly messed up the release and therefore have no choice but to re-release the product, again, but with the replaced score.

To put it simple this product is a re-release of last years Dragon Ball Z Kai Season One, but this time, now confirmed, containing the replaced Shunsuke Kikuchi score.

Funimation has been throwing around Dragon Ball Z releases for years from Volume sets to those hopefully forgotten Orange bricks sets. So what makes this new release any different from the rest?

Well this isn't the original Dragon Ball Z TV Show but a "Refreshed" edition of the show.

Look, I LOVE the original DBZ (and Dragon Ball, though this is primarily about DBZ./DBZ Kai). I watched it all the time on Toonami way back in the day, played with the action figures, played the video games, had some old VHS tapes, and a few years ago I got the orange bricks (not the best remastering, but it overall fit my needs). However, as much as I love the original DBZ (and my DBZ fix was coming up again), I knew I needed a fresh change. As much as I love the Funimation English dub of DBZ, I've got to put some nostalgia aside and admit that it wasn't always the best. The acting was shoddy at times and the scripts (often changed from the original manga) could range from cheesy to downright terrible. Based on everything I had heard/seen from DBZ Kai, it looked exactly like the fix I needed. Not only was it a "new" version of DBZ that would feel fresh, but it would perhaps give me my fix and even more.

I am thrilled to say that I was right. [NOTE: This is not the edited version of Kai that aired on Nicktoons. This is the UNCUT version of DBZ Kai that contains blood and swearing.] DBZ Kai is exactly what I wanted and more. First of all, I have the say that the script is WAY better than that of the dub I grew up with. It is manga-accurate and never has those cheesy, cornball moments that the other English dubs have had. Also, considering that they have had 10 years of voice-acting experience, the English actors (mostly the same with a few changes) are absolutely superb this time around. Sean Schemmel completely embodies Goku, as does Chris Sabat as Vegeta and Piccolo (the voices are actually completely distinguishable from each other now). Everyone else is great as well.

This review refers to the original 2011 edition.

Funimation has been throwing around Dragon Ball Z releases for years from Volume sets to those hopefully forgotten Orange bricks sets. So what makes this new release any different from the rest?

Well this isn't the original Dragon Ball Z TV Show but a "Refreshed" edition of the show. Dragon Ball Z Kai takes to the vision of the Manga. Kai brilliantly removes all the filler from the original TV Show allowing a more faster and action packed story. For example the Garlic Jr Arc has been removed as it was not presented in the manga in a 4:3 aspect ratio. Not only that but the show is presented in a Full HD 1080p resolution with a complete dirt clean up giving it a whole new viewing experience. The show runs for a total of 98 episodes finishing off at the end of the Cell Games.

One of the main attractions to the English version of this show is it's Dub. The English Dub keeps strict to the Japanese Dialogue and story unlike the English version of Dragon Ball Z. Not only does the English version contain a shiny new dub but the Japanese version has also been re-recorded. However the English Dub is presented in Dolby True HD 5.1 whereas the Japanese version is Dolby True HD 2.0

It should be noted that this Season Set uses Kenji's Yamamoto's Score despite indicting on the box Shunsuke Kikuchi's Score.

So for people who want to see a fast paced Dragon Ball Z in High Definition with a true to the script English Dub then this is the set for you.

Features:

Episodes 1 - 26 on 4 Discs
English Dolby True HD 5.1
Japanese Dolby True HD 2.

Is Kai a whole new series?
Kai is a 'refreshed' version of Dragonball Z. It is the same show, but with new voice acting, cleaner animation, and all the annoying filler cut out. I would recommend Kai over the original Z cut to anyone, new and old fans alike.
