Meanwhile, Vegeta – fully recovered from his humiliating defeat – travels to planet Namek on a mission to intercept Frieza and seize the Dragon Balls for own devious desires.

    By Zack Davisson HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 8, 2010
    Format: DVD
    The original "Dragon Ball Z" packed a lot of unnecessary fat onto the meat of Toriyama Akira's manga. Adapted from the final twenty-six volumes of the manga series, the producers wanted to stretch out the story into as many episodes as possible to stuffed in a bunch of filler and random content onto the main story.

    "Dragon Ball Z Kai" takes a carving knife to the series and slices away all that extra, leaving only the pure Toriyama-elements. Reducing the series by more than half, "Dragon Ball Z Kai" has a hundred episodes compared to "Dragon Ball Z"'s two hundred and ninety-one. That, my friends, is a lot of filler. A hundred and ninety-one episodes of filler.

    Along with the episode reduction, "Dragon Ball Z Kai" has digitally restored the faded cels, replaced missing cels, and recorded both a new English dub and a new Japanese voice track using a mix of new and original voice actors to match up with the re-tooled version. In short, "Dragon Ball Z Kai" is like a straight shot of tequila compared to the original "Dragon Ball Z"'s froofy, over-decorated blender marguerite..

    Boxset Two of "Dragon Ball Z Kai" has episodes 14-26 on two DVDs. The episodes start with Goku powering up with the 3x Kaio-ken to duke it out with Vegeta, and ends with a final throw-down between Vegeta and Zarbon. And in-between is action, action, action.

    If you have never gotten into "Dragon Ball" and always been curious about it, then these Kai releases are the way to go.

    As I said in my review about part 1: I have been watching DBZ for about 10 years now, and I am happy that I can finally watch every episode and not get bored from all the fillers and stand-offs from the original.

    Likes-
    New intro
    Fixing of the scenes that were damaged over the years
    Taking out the fillers
    Better English dialogue
    Excellent sound quality
    Pretty much exactly like the manga
    New animated breaks in between parts of an episode that actually change as the episodes progress.

    Dislikes-
    No marathon mode

    I think Dragon Ball Z Kai is awesome, it gets me excited to watch the whole series again. My guess is there will be 7 parts to the whole Dragon Ball Z Kai series. Reason why I say this is because, on the right side of the case, in the middle of the corresponding stars where it says what part it is. There are 7 stars lined up in a row.

    This is the best I've ever seen Dragonball Z. I admit that the original anime has since bored me while growing up, but Kai reinvigorated my interest in it. The quality is great too. The only reason why I didn't give a full five stars is because it didn't have a great deal of bonus features.

    I have been a loyal fan of Dragon Ball Z since I was younger and watching the original run on Toonami and on VHS. I drifted away from DBZ for many years but have been an anime enthusiast ever since DBZ got me hooked.

    Dragon Ball Z Kai caught my eye for several reasons: mainly being remastered yet retaining the original 4:3 aspect ratio (unlike the previous two versions that chopped part of the format to be presented in pseudo widescreen). I have faithfully purchased the Kai series (the titles released so far) on Blu-Ray. Here are my thoughts:

    Part two takes us through the the episodes leading up to the major battles on Namek. These episodes begin after Vegeta's battle on earth and lead up to his final battle with Zarbon on Namek. For those familiar with the series, these episodes contain less action but a lot more important story than others. There is also the sense of urgency of finding and protecting the Namek dragon balls from both Vegeta and Freiza. Good stuff, though not as action packed as part three.

    Technical stuff:
    The ratio is kept to the original 4:3 aspect. Some animations have been cleaned and even re-animated (in the case of some of the lighting effects from ki attacks and power-ups). Some of the re-animated shots look like something from American Saturday morning cartoons rather than anime, but these instances were very rare. The two that stood out were in this volume actually (a couple of Vegeta's moves).

    The sound is vastly superior to the previous versions. The English dub is improved and they aren't afraid to get a little dirty (they swear often, but not in an offensive way. They just yell 'you bastard' a lot). Though the few uses of swearing is in line with the more literal translation.

    Kai is simply amazing. It's a revered and respectful follow-up that the original DragonBall deserved. The audio and animation are spot on in here. No edits that I can detect. The only downside that I can think of is that there isn't an option to view the episodes in a Marathon mode or watch them with the TV Version opening instead of the DVD exclusive opening. Sorry, but I prefer the TV version over this one. But please, don't stop-don't stop WE'RE IN LOVE NOW!
