I used to be one of those individuals that would criticized the dragon box because of the lack of Bruce Faulconer music and because the price was significantly higher. Since I'm a fan of the series I couldn't help myself and I found my self pre-ordering the first Dragon Box to find out what the big deal was. I knew deep down that I wasn't gonna be to happy with the Japanese music.

Once I received the box I realized how incredibly well packaged everything comes. It already made the orange bricks look cheap and I had yet to open the box. The dragon box was about the size of two orange bricks (remastered sets) and the smaller boxes inside were beautifully build. The booklet that's included with the set is very handy when watching the episodes and its hardcover and not held together with a single staple like in the orange bricks.

The quality of the video is superb, its near perfect and the colors are beautiful. I found my self looking at all the vivid colors and seeing detail I had not seen before. It was truly like watching a different version of Dragon ball Z. This is the way Dragon ball Z should have been released from the start!

Now on to the music, when I first started watching the series I wanted the American music! Since I couldn't have it, I just stop complaining and decided to watch it and appreciate it. I found my self loving the Japanese music. Before I knew it I just couldn't go back to the American version. It's almost like watching an entirely new show. Try the Japanese music and it will grow on you after each episode.

I also want to mention that I did own the orange Bricks, but now that I own the First dragon box I've sold all the orange bricks on Amazon.

Okay, we all know that the dub score isn't on this set. I am just as disappointed as other dub fans, but you have to understand, Funi is aiming these sets at another audience for once and wants to preserve quality. So just shut up and accept it instead of giving 1-star reviews to a product that wasn't meant for you in the first place. I don't necessarily agree with Funi's decisions and would rather have a release that satisfies all audiences, but regardless, we've been catered to for years so we should let the fans of the Japanese version have a release they can be proud of. We're lucky we got a dub in the first place as Funi made this release so that fans of the Japanese version can just watch the show as it was meant to be seen.

This DBZ Dragon Box series is an exciting thing. I've been a fan of DBZ since I first saw it on syndicated television in the mid to late '90s. (You could say I was a fan of the series even earlier, about '95 or '96 or so, since I also watched the first thirteen episodes of Dragon Ball when that first aired in the States.)

Ever since becoming a fan of DBZ and having just around that time discovered the Internet, I searched for the series on Yahoo! and came up with a website which displayed many of the changes made in the US--all of the censorship, reworked music, and all of that. Since then, I've been clamoring for Dragon Ball Z, uncut and subbed with the original music.

I thought FUNimation were going to deliver with the season sets they released a few years ago, but they botched the job entirely by "remastering" the video in the most awful way imaginable: in addition to the drastically cropped framing (to create a faux-widescreen ratio--I'm BIG on original aspect ratio as it affects cinematography and composition), careless and unwatched DVNR was applied, a process which is intended to eliminate dirt and scratch marks that are present on the film being scanned, but when used so carelessly, it can do devastating things to video, especially animation, where lines of art are "erased" (that is, the lines are read by the program as scratch marks, so it takes color and other visual information surrounding the lines and then covers over the lines with this information, causing lines of art to disappear, particularly quick/fast-paced animation). To make matters worse, the colors and lighting are all blown-out and faded. (I'm not too familiar with technical terms; this could be due to contrast boosting, but I'm uncertain.

The second half of what started it all for the US fans! This Dragon Box, as with all seven Dragon Boxes are great for those of us that fell in love with the show but enjoy the original version as opposed to the dub. This Dragon Box drops you in the Namek Saga and pulls you back out just as the Frieza fight starts to heat up.

Why I like it: It's Dragon Ball Z in it's original (all-be-it) remastered form. These were taken from the Japanese Dragon Box masters and they look great! And if you're into aspect ratios and you don't care about the black bars on your TV (because it really DOESN'T matter) this has the entire frame presented. The audio is as to be expected from the old mono masters of the '80s and '90s. It comes with a small book detailing character trees, episode summaries, and other goodies as well. It also has the US Dub included in 5.1 surround.

The nitpicky: The US Dub. I understand that a lot of us wanted the english voice cast with the original music, but here it kind of falls flat. Especially when you start getting into the Frieza arc and you go from having a 2009 redub of the Saiyan and Namek saga with actors that have had years of experience voicing these characters, back to the old dubs where there was a bit (a lot) of over acting and other dialogue issues. The problem is that the voices were meant FOR THE US SOUNDTRACK. Not the Japanese track. It doesn't fall flat because it's bad...simply because they don't mesh with each other. If they had written and recorded the script for the Japanese sound track it would probably be fine, but it seems as though they didn't and it comes over as "just kind of 'meh.'"

The bad: Price wise: Dragon Box Two is the modern equivalent of Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout.
