This dragon box finishes off the freza saga and goes through the android saga leading up to the arrival of cell.

I love this item and it was worth all the money

Seeing as this is volume 3, you probably (or should) have checked out volumes 1 and 2. You should be familiar with the video and audio quality. This is as close to a perfect version we have. There have been so many "prints" of DBZ that the ratio, audio, and color are quite different between versions. So the Dragon Box's might not have the best color, and it's the original Japanese audio which is in mono, however, if you take all of the aspects of DBZ and compare them across the different iterations the Dragon Box is the most complete and balanced.

Just as the Box art suggest, this wraps up the Feeza saga. The Dragon Box's INCLUDE the filler saga with Garlic Jr. so you can skip it by skipping over that particular disc, but it's a nice diversion and deviation from the constant lather rinse and repeat formula of everyone is helpless until Goku arrives. That was alright for the particular arc that developed, starting with Goku's training with Kai-o in the afterlife, to the training in 100x gravity in the capsule, and the fight with Ginyuu and recovering in the healing pod. That culminates in the transformation into Super Saiyan. The filler saga has Goku out of the picture and lets things develop using other characters in the show, so it's not bad.

Volume 3 of the Dragon Box contains episodes 85-125. Each episode has the English dubbed version, and the original Japanese audio. The Dragon Box was originally produced in Japan, and made its way to the US years later. These sets are very produced in limited quantities, and are now out of print. Each volume has 6 disks, and a very collectible cases and booklet. Each booklet has an episode guide, and additional art in them as well. It's important to note that this release has the fan favorite ratio of 4:3, and not 16:9, like in the new Blu-Ray release. If I had to choose one or the other, it would be this one.

The dragon box volume 3 is a great collection for dragonball z fans. the case is very sturdy and will properly protect and display the DVDs. This volume covers ALL of Goku's battle with Freiza,the Garlic Jr. saga, and all the way up to the 1st episode that Androids 19 and 20 are in.

I love my dragonbox to death. The case is just amazing, I can't stop looking at it everytime I see it. The other big thing i love about this collection is the next episode previews. I love being able to watch this footage that i had never seen before. If you are a dragonball z fan and have the money to buy this collection.BUY IT!!

I haven't finished watching all of the episodes on this disk set, but the quality is very good. The disk must first be configured through setup before viewing or it is shown with the original Japanese dialog. These are the original episodes and are there in their entirety. The value is much better than buying each episode seperately.

What is left to be said about these sets that hasn't already been said? I own Volumes One & Two and will pre-order this set as well.

Yes, it's more of the same:
*No extras (unless you count the booklet or trailers)
*No ENG Dub BGM
*42 EPIC episodes, spanning the end of the "FREEZA" arc, the "GARLIC Jr." arc, the "TRUNKS/MECHA FREEZA" arc and the first episode of the "ARTIFICIAL
HUMAN" arc
*Superior picture quality compared to the "season" sets/"Orange Brick" release
*Superior audio quality compared to the "season" sets/"Orange Brick" release
*Another gorgeous booklet containing episode summaries and other "extras"
*PLUS: Freeza just looks damn creepy ^_^

As a fan, I couldn't ask for more. I don't need useless ENG voice actor commentary or a look at their recording process. I don't need JPN eye drop commercials or TOONAMI promos. I don't need "clean" opening/ending animations (fans of the JPN version provided on FUNi's releases have had them for years, anyway). And I certainly don't need an ENG dub track. I'd be fine with just subtitles. After all, you don't hear me complain that the "ORIGINAL" ENG dub for episodes 1-53/67 aren't on these sets, further demonstrating how these aren't the "DEFINITIVE EDITION". But I digress...

So, for all the people who don't want to buy these sets because their precious ENG BGM isn't included, I truly am sorry. Neither the "Orange Brick" or DBox can truly be the "definitive edition/version/master/blah blah blah" that FUNi keeps proclaiming them to be until Faulconer's BGM is included. But as for myself, I finally have my "definitive edition/version/master/blah blah blah", and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

It is great to have the whole season in one box. And each box adds together with the other season to create a great picture that looks nice on a shelf. The price was great and it got to us very quickly. Actually ordered another Dragonball Z set and will probably order the next season when available.Worth every penny!

When I had bought the Dragon Box I had high expectations, and upon recieving Dragon Box 3 I was not disappointed, until I took off the shrinkwrap. The infocard(?) on the back was stuck on with a sticker in a way that when you remove it it rips the back of the packaging. I contacted amazon customer service and a replacement was sent, and upon opening the package the exact same thing happened, now I don't know if this has happened to anyone else or just me, the dvd quality is great, the only problem I've had is with the packaging.
