Now that's where Dragon Ball comes in. I remember watching DBZ on Toonami to what seems like ages ago, I remember vaguely watching Dragon Ball at a best friend's house, but I only remembered the episode "Oolong the Terrible." Without hesitation, I purchased all five box sets, and what began as simply an "impulse" buy became something much more.
Everything about Dragon Ball, every episode, character, storyline, and yes even the filler itself I enjoyed, I thought everything was great. I can't think of a show since Beast Wars, GW & Cowboy Bebop where I was excited to move onto the next story. I think this show is much better than its successors Dragon Ball Z & GT. Instead of silly power levels and over the top hubris from over the top villains from DBZ and GT, we get a sincere vision of an adventure that involves humor, love, betrayal, friendship and loyalty. It's not about power levels; it's about skill, humility and determination.
For a thirty year old show, the animation is beautiful; they did a wonderful job re-mastering the sets. My only real complaint is that they ended the show by essentially telling you to watch Dragon Ball Z. This is disappointing to me, because the difference between this show and DBZ is like night and day, why is that?Read more ›
Video: FUNimations claims this is a widescreen transfer from the original video. Dragonball Z fans are screaming the original video was cropped to make it widescreen. I've spent the last 2 days with WinDVD and Photoshop to confirm or disprove this. Anyone who does image editing knows that cropping a 4:3 image to 16:9 can be really dramatic. After watching 67 episodes of this new release from FUNimation, I wasn't completely convinced about the transfer being cropped from it's original 4:3 aspect ratio. Dragonball Z fans are correct to say the widescreen transfer is cropped, but they also would need to admit to that the 4:3 broadcast we fans know and love was also cropped! The widescreen transfer has extended video on the left and right that was cropped for the original 4:3 TV broadcast some 18 years ago. A time when 4:3 televisions were standard. In recent times, 16:9 televisions have taken over, and we're much more widescreen oriented. The original animation aspect ration I got when I was done sizing and layering the images over each other from the 4:3 and 16:9 gave me a 16:11 aspect ratio. This my Dragon Ball Z fans... Seems to be the ORIGINAL size. 16:11 though won't look all that great on any TV set. Also makes sense though since animators make the original larger so when transferring the animation to video, there's room to play with so you don't have random spots missing on the sides, top and bottom. So if you have to ask yourself if this is a legitmate 16:9 transfer or some 4:3 cropped (cut/edited) video, the real answer is...Read more ›

Awesome season. There are problems such as weird cropping and on some of the funimation remastered box sets have multiple voices for characters which does kinda get under your skin... Read morePublished 15 days ago by Tanner Shoff
Broken DVD holders causing several scratches. It would still play, but would pause for a minute or two at times (Which can be really annoying if you are in the middle of a battle). Read morePublished 15 days ago by Reign
