4.0 out of 5 stars No Filler, Original Music Back, Best Performances March 29, 2013
Once again another season, another box set, another rendition of Funimation's dub over of the original series. The 20+ episodes will scream by fast, although the pacing becomes very different compared to seasons 1 and 2, in some cases it'll feel very slow, other times it's very quick. The transition from the Android menace to Cell is almost a blink and doesn't stop until Cell absorbs his first android victim.

The musical score has been altered after the problems with the japanese composer being busted for infringment and while the japanese tv version didn't replace the new score until the end of the series run, the english version redid the audio track with the original musical score instead. So those of you who were enjoying the new style that appeared thru much of season 1 and bits of Season 2, I'm sorry, but that's what happens when you copy other musical scores without permission, you get to resign your comission from Toei! However the original score has no problems in keeping up with the new edit and less filler of Kai.

The voice actors from much of the original dub still return to reprise their roles so your favorite voices are still around from as far back as the late 90's early 2000!

Overall, it's the same series, less filler though, but performances are still fantastic and still fun to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars DBZ Kai Continues to Impress! January 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
As a fan of the Dragonball and Dragonball Z manga, DBZ Kai is a really nice addition to my collection. While I can appreciate the original for its own sake, this is the version I go to when I just wanna watch some of the story and not take up too much time. For those who know the original Japanese music inside and out, the music placement in Kai is a little weird, but if you can get past that it's fun to watch. The English voice acting is hugely improved upon compared to the American version of the original DBZ as well. Give it a shot!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite DBZ Season! January 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is my favorite DBZ Kai season out to date!

This Review Will First talk about the packaging/contents, then thoughts on actual film.

Packaging:
This came from amazon in a small brown cardboard envelope type package. I would say its pretty safe from damage because the contents when opened were not crushed and was wrapped in plastic to protect from scratches. When I removed the plastic wrap, I noticed that the case comes in a sleeve that has the exact case art on it. I don't understand why it has the exact same print on the sleeve as it does on the case but it's okay, the sleeve still adds a nice quality look to it. When opening the case I found a DBZ Game ad, and a survey. The case is see through so you can read the episode list printed on the back of the case cover paper. And Of course the four disks.

Film:
If you've watched or heard about the kai, you know it has been refined, shorten, and re voiced. I think the characters sound just as good as the originals. There is some mild language but nothing to offensive. The new animation looks great, especially in blu-ray. It doesn't play in full/wide screen, atleast not by default. What I mean by this is that the aspect ratio looks like it's in 4:3. Im not sure if you can change this, I haven't messed around in the settings.

Overall though If your looking to watch some of those episodes from when you were a kid, or watching them from the first time, its a good idea to pick this up. Less filler and more action!! Dont be counfused, less filler doesn't mean small amount of content. Lots of time spent watching this season!

4.0 out of 5 stars Totally worth the buy. January 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
I'll keep this as short as possible. This is advertised as 16:9. It is not. It's in 4:3 format with black bars on the sides. Resolution is crisp and audio is phenomenal. These are also the uncut versions with the occasional cursing and almost all of the blood and "gore" from the original version of the series. This "season" starts off when Goku kills Frieza and ends when Cell attains his perfect form (just to clarify.) Be warned, watching this season will make you want to buy the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great season of Kai July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
Another great season of Kai. The flow of the story is very fluid, and still keeps the narrative of each arc intact. All things considered, a great buy for fans both new and old.
