I would have easily paid $30 to $40 each for these. Hands down, this is the most visually stunning and in my opinion the only "good" version of Dragon Ball Z available. In all honesty, my jaw dropped the first time I stuck these disks into my PS3 and watched them. Now, I know there is a lot of controversy about what is happening with this set recently. For anyone who doesn't already know; Funimation has TEMPORARILY halted the release of future "DBZ Level Blurays" due to the fact that the process is very expensive and sales have been less than stellar for some reason. I don't believe they will cancel it because for one, it's DBZ, which is their highest grossing show and also they released a statement saying that they are researching more economical ways of getting this product to the fans. So, I urge all who is a true fan of DBZ. This is what you have been waiting for. Kai is crap. It ends with the Cell Saga which means it's not just a fancy edit, it's also not even the full show for crying out loud. Not buying these blurays because you are afraid they won't release the rest is only going to add to the problem. Buy the sets and show your support; they are cheap as hell right now. Contact Funimation and tell them you want more. Spread the word about these sets. I guarantee you won't be sorry.

The main reason i held from buying for this long was because the price dropped a little..Funimation did better than i thought,hopefully they can find a way to continue the level sets without compromising the picture quality.

This review covers both the 1.1 and the 1.2 level set on blu ray, I will try to do my best to write a fair review.

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.

Yes. Funimation has indefinitely postponed the Dragon Ball Z Blu-Ray restorations (though not Kai). This is a sad day indeed. Apparently there is a technology or other issue. But Level 1.2 was the last, though there might be advance copies of 2.1 floating around.

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.

It had both languages, 3 music options, and presented in proper aspect ratio: 4:3, and had all the original colors remastered.

This is all far better than to the cropped (16:9) over saturated DVD season sets, as well as the cropped (16:9) over saturated new Blu-ray season sets.

For those of you who are looking for the US/Toonami version in its native full screen 4:3 aspect ratio, this is the collection for you. The Nathan Johnson (and further down the line Bruce Faulconer) music sounds amazing. While it may be just a transition from DVD to Blu-Ray, the English title cards are re-written to look more like the Japanese Kanji and Kana that were present in the Japanese version. There are three audio tracks: The US/ Toonami version with the US Nathan Johnson and Bruce Faulconer BGM, the US/Toonami version with the Japanese BGM and the Japanese version complete with original title cards and end credit title cards.

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.
