Product Description

The Definitive Collection continues!

The battle to decide the fate of the universe begins! On the distant Planet Namek, the seven magic Dragon Balls have been brought together and the dragon Porunga summoned. Now, Goku and the Z-fighters are all that stand between the evil Frieza and his wish for immortality! Having survived their encounters with Frieza’s dreaded minions, Goku and his friends are now left to contend with the ruthless tyrant himself. Despite their recent victories, however, the Z-fighters are ill prepared to face the terrifying reality of Frieza’s power. To defeat this seemingly invincible foe and restore peace to the universe, there is but one hope—a Super Saiyan must emerge!

This 6 disc set contains the complete Freiza saga.

Amazon.com

The third season of the popular shonen (boy's) show Dragon Ball Z continues the adventures of Goku and Gohan on Namek, Piccolo's home planet. Goku, who has been in a regeneration tank since the end of season 2, recovers just in time to challenge the sniggering Frieza, one of the most grating villains in anime history. Having defeated Gohan, Krillin, Vegeta, and Piccolo, Frieza takes on Goku in a protracted duel. When he begins to doubt his ability to overcome Goku, Frieza destroys the core of Namek, ensuring it will explode in a matter of minutes. Enraged by the death of Krillin and so many others, Goku transforms into the one thing Frieza fears: a Super Saiyan, a legendary warrior who appears once every 1,000 years. As the seconds tick away, the two most powerful individuals in the universe duke it out. While they're beating the soba out of each other, King Kai hatches a plan to use the Dragon Balls of Earth and Namek to ensure a happy ending. As the battle between Goku and Frieza intensifies, the kicks and punches fly, producing titanic explosions. But the duel goes on for more than 20 episodes: With only a limited budget and crude special-effects techniques at their disposal, the filmmakers have to recycle footage endlessly. Dragon Ball Z: Season 3 is more entertaining when the viewer allows a few days to elapse between episodes, rather than indulging in a Super Saiyan marathon. (Rated TV PG. suitable for ages 8 and older: violence, brief nudity, tobacco use, ethnic stereotypes) --Charles Solomon

Dragon Ball has become a manga bestseller and a champion with audiences around the world. The executives at Toei Animation, which financed the TV show, motivated by this, kind of forced the author, Akira Toriyama, to continue producing new sagas, new characters and new storylines. Thus, Dragon Ball franchise has a very uneven quality: there are some brilliant moments in the series, and there are moments that are real disasters.

But if there is a time in the series when it reached an really high artistic level it was in the Frieza saga. Frieza is by far the greatest villain of the entire universe of Dragon Ball, and is the culmination of the creative talent of Toriyama. Frieza is a psychologically complex villain, and the construction of his character is extremely rich. We are facing a character of great aesthetic value; Frieza may well be among the great characters of universal literature and cinema. I doubt there is any fan of Dragon ball that has not Frieza among his favorite characters.

Unlike many Japanese series, Dragon Ball usually spends chapters and more chapters dealing with only one villain; the fights are extremely lengthy and detailed, and the series progresses slowly. This feature allows a great detailing of the characters: villains, for example, do not arise in a chapter only to be soon defeated and killed. Their story will spread slowly: there will be a overture and growth of action, a climax, and finally an epilogue.

With plenty of time, Toryama is free to build the psyche of Frieza. Something tells me that Frieza was also his favorite villain, after all is struggling with this universal gangster that Goku transforms for the first time into a super saiyan.

This DVD set includes the entire Frieza saga. It goes up to the point where Namek explodes just after Frieza's defeat. My favorite feature of this box set is the marathon feature option. This allows you to watch all the episodes on each disc w/o any previews or opening/closing songs. It makes everything flow so much smoother. The video and audio quality is also very good in this collection. It is presented in 5.1 dolby digital. The dialogue has also been revised. It's a great addition to any DBZ fans collection.

I don't know about anyone else, but Frieza is one of the most unforgettable villains in DBZ. The thing that places DBZ among the greatest animated shows is one word..."Sagas." Yes, it's the sagas that make this show great. Saga's cause great character development and draws you in to see what will happen next. The Frieza saga, is one of the best. Not only is it the introduction to the Super Saiyan generation, but is also a really long, intense, and captivating battle. The third season is the first one I bought, because it's where DBZ goes to a whole new level. Hardcore fans may say differently but if you want to know where the serious action begins, it's in the Frieza saga. I was skeptical at first but after plopping in the first disk, I was hooked. One of my favorite episodes is when Frieza beats Vegeta to death. I was hooked. Trust me you wont' be dissapointed.
There are some minor downpoints of this DVD Collection:
a) Many are crying over the Widescreen, but trust me, it's not THAT BAD at all. There are a few times where you wish you could see the full frame but come on. The visuals are much more crisp and clear and you can't beat the 5.1 surround sound Japanese music.
b) The dialogue can be downright cheesy to the point of shaking your head. For instance, while in a heated galactical PUNCH-FEST, Frieza (the diabolical, cold-hearted killer) says to Goku "You Dirty Dog!" to which Goku replies "It takes one to know one!" What is this 3rd Grade?
But these minor irritations are hardly enough to stop one from purchasing this bundle. C'mon, what are ya' waiting for? Get it!!

Season 3 of Dragonballz features the whole Frieza Saga. Although I love most of the DBZ Sagas, this is my favorite saga out of all the others.
I remember I alway wanted to get this saga but it was 10 tapes or DVD'S and the cost was around $80-$100, and I could not afford that. But thanks to the new DBZ season sets I could get this for 30 bucks instead.
I'm going to buy this the first day it comes out.

Relive the best Dragon Ball Z moments on 1080p HD and Dolby True HD sound. The image quality is awesome. I recommend it to Dragon Ball Z fans. I hope they do the same to the original Dragon Ball.

Steve Franko Response!
The way these sets are selling you'd assume dbz was on that level. A thought I conceived from the negative votes on your very helpful post about the problems of these sets. We're outnumbered about 1-5 or 1-6 (which makes this fight better to me). So it also would seem we are in a very limited... Read More
