Video- The video looks great, it hasn't been altered and is presented in a 4x3 format, it takes up the entire screen on a widescreen television but there are black bars, this set actually doubles in a way because if I use my TV remote and hit zoom fit to screen then boom I have an image similar to the cropped blu ray set they released. The picture still has grain to show detail and the colors are wonderful and they aren't washed out.
Audio- I've never had any problems with the DBZ audio in terms of quality, the only problem was whether it was present or not on any particular release. This one included the 2 English tracks, 1 with Japanese music and one with the "Bruce" soundtrack, as always it sound great, if anyone has any questions Ill go more in depth but im fairly certain people are concerned about the video not the audio
Personally I think this set is great and im comparing this to other DBZ releases I own which include the Rock The Dragon set, Orange brick collection, movies on dvd, and finally the dragon box set. The level set isn't perfect though because its been put on hold and these poor cropped versions have been made instead, ive compared these to the level sets and these are clearly superior in terms of video quality due to picture quality and the fact that it is not cropped. If your a fan and your looking for the best viewing experience then I cant in good conscious recommend the other blu ray set, Id say go for the Dragon Box set, its quality is wonderful but you'll have problem acquiring the second set because its quite expensive, around $400 eBay.Read more ›
If you are a die hard fan of the Japanese version with original opening title cards, original title cards, end credit title cards and original next episode previews, then this set isn't for you.
However, if you are a die hard fan of the US/Toonami version with the Nathan Johnson/Bruce Faulconer BGM but were disappointed with the orange season DVD boxsets that cropped the original native full screen 4:3 aspect ratio into wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio then this set is for you.
But as of Jan 2012, this restoration project has been indefinitely postponed (likely cancelled)!
I just thought everyone would like to know before buying the available copies and then not having the rest of the set coming out anytime in the foreseeable future.
In the meantime, DBZ Kai is what I have been purchasing. It does chop out a lot of the filler content, but it holds true to the DBZ story that Akira Toriyama created and intended before Toei started stretching the series out longer. The restoration on the Kai Blu-Ray is pretty amazing for the most part. I understand it is a simpler restoration process, but watching on a 46" TV from my PS3, the show looks great. And they kept the 4:3 ratio.
But for DBZ Level (instert # here)? You Fail on this one Funimation! I will delete this review when they announce they are producing the rest of these sets.
