For casual fans, this is an absolutely perfect buy. If you are a hardcore fan, this is NOT the definitive edition of DBZ. This is the best purchase you can make that isn't $500.
The Blu Rays:
- Are saturated a bit more to add a more modern aesthetic.
- Look gorgeous remastered, almost like a painting
- Include worthwhile commentaries
- Include both Japanese and English music and language
- A small portion of the top and bottom is cropped to fit modern widescreen tv's
- The saturation might not be as appealing to some
- Good release, but not the definitive edition many hardcore fans long for
If you're looking to buy this for a relative/grandson etc. buy THESE, the Blu Rays, rather than the Orange Bricks. Do NOT waste your money on those. Here's why:
- The orange bricks crop out an incredibly noticeable amount from the top and bottom of the screen
- The remaster job is passable at best, at times very poor
- The colors are incredibly over saturated
I hope this helps. If not, just find the dragonballs.
The Japanese subbed voice cast did a superb job and so did the English dubbed voice cast for the most part though again there are one or two who seemed to have been miscast for their character roles. Regardless for the prices of these sets it's definitely worth getting these collection sets now before it's too late.
Also has a marathon mode, so you can just plow through every episode on a disk.
If you loved the show growing up, and can afford to invest in this full set, go ahead and do it. Pick your favorite season to try it out, and you'll probably buy all the rest. That's what I did.
On the cover is featured Majin Vegeta (he gets possessed later on) and Goku as well as to fight him. I like to call this the 2nd major bout with Vegeta vs Goku. In my opinion, Buu's voice is annoy after a few times hearing it because its high pitched and he talks in 3rd person such as: 'Buu likes you,' or 'Buu wants to eat cookies' to give you an idea what to expect. Buu is pretty much the strongest villian in the Dragon Ball Z series compared to Frieza and Cell (if you combined them both).
-Goten and Trunks fuse to make Gotenks (as well as the introduction of SSJ3)
-Gohan obtains the Z Sword
-Kai and Elder Kai (higher than the 4 direction Kais)
These disks are great quality, they give you the option in choosing the language subs or dubs.
