The ultimate Dragon Ball Z - Collect them all!
One of the most popular franchises in anime history, Dragon Ball began in 1984 as a manga by Akira Toriyama in Shonen Jump. Dragon Ball Z (1989), the second TV adaptation, is the most beloved: it ran for 291 episodes--more than Dragon Ball (1986) and Dragon Ball GT (1996) combined. Over the years, the program has introduced countless boys to the world of Japanese animation. The first season re-introduces the main characters and sets up a new threat. Goku learns he's not an Earthling, but a Saiyan from the planet Vegeta. Only three other Saiyans survive, all of them extremely powerful and destructive. Goku destroys Raditz with the help of Piccolo, but dies in the process. He spends much of the season training in the Other World with King Kai. Piccolo takes over training Goku's son Gohan, anticipating he will have to face the remaining Saiyans, Nappa and Vegeta. These episodes set the pattern for the combination of martial arts training, fantasy-battles and slapstick comedy that make the series so popular. The storyline rambles, with lots of digressions, repeats, and false endings--none of which bother the fans. Although Dragon Ball Z has been released previously in the US, Funimation pulled out all the stops for this edition. The entire series has been remastered from the original prints, and the Japanese language track is included for the first time. (Goku and Krillin have higher-pitched, younger voices than they do in the American dub.) For Dragon Ball Z fans, this version clearly supercedes all previous ones. (Rated TV PG. suitable for ages 8 and older: violence; minor incidents of risqué and toilet humor, ethnic stereotyping and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

The dragon ball series is amazing. But the set didn't come with an episode guide which makes it feel a bit incomplete. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Seguin

The reason for is this, is that FUNimation no longer wants to use this due to its... cheesy, 90's-esque sound. FUNimation, from what I can tell, seems to want to market it to a more mature audience. As you can tell from the Season set trailers as well as the music on the DVD menus, they're trying... Read More

|Widescreen is REAL!!!!||
You clearly don't know what you're talking about. I'm not even going to bother to watch that video but if it claims DBZ was made in 16:9 it's a lie.

|A True Review||
The "Remastered in High Definition" label isn't too confusing. It just means what it says. But you have to remember that normal DVD's aren't high definition. So any DVD you get is going to be 480p no matter what. But what it does mean is that the master that they have now to make... Read More
