The epic showdown between Goku and Frieza reaches its climax as planet Namek crumbles beneath their feet! In the aftermath of battle, neither fighter is anywhere to be found, but Earth's few remaining heroes have much bigger problems. A mysterious and powerful stranger known only as Trunks arrives from the future with a warning: the Androids are coming, they take no prisoners, and even Goku - wherever he may be - is no match for their kind! Contains episodes 53-77.

Once again another season, another box set, another rendition of Funimation's dub over of the original series. The 20+ episodes will scream by fast, although the pacing becomes very different compared to seasons 1 and 2, in some cases it'll feel very slow, other times it's very quick. The transition from the Android menace to Cell is almost a blink and doesn't stop until Cell absorbs his first android victim.

The musical score has been altered after the problems with the japanese composer being busted for infringment and while the japanese tv version didn't replace the new score until the end of the series run, the english version redid the audio track with the original musical score instead. So those of you who were enjoying the new style that appeared thru much of season 1 and bits of Season 2, I'm sorry, but that's what happens when you copy other musical scores without permission, you get to resign your comission from Toei! However the original score has no problems in keeping up with the new edit and less filler of Kai.

The voice actors from much of the original dub still return to reprise their roles so your favorite voices are still around from as far back as the late 90's early 2000!

Overall, it's the same series, less filler though, but performances are still fantastic and still fun to watch!

Kai has been a wonderful series. By cutting out the filler that was not part of the manga, Studio Toei has done a wonderful job bringing the series to Akira Toriyama's original vision. Gone is the ridiculous filler that created plot-holes and dragged the series on and on without a sign of resolution in sight. Granted, I am a fan of long stories and unabridged novels, but all the extra story to the original series was was just filler to pad out episodes. Now we have Kai, a series closer to the manga as it should have been from the start. Now the stories flow better and feel less bulky.

Season three is incredible. While the first sagas were pretty good, such as the Saiyan and Freeza Saga, this is where it picks up it's stride with the Trunks, Androids, and Cell Saga. The storytelling, though not deep, is compelling, dealing with time traveling, androids, Cell, and a vengeance from the past in the form of a mad scientist angry at Goku for something that happened in the original Dragon Ball series. The chemistry between Goku and Gohan is touching, just as the chemistry between Trunks and Vegeta is intriguing. The fight scenes are top notch. Though, Dragon Ball Z isn't the deepest series, this set of episodes does have some mild philosophy thrown in about ethics during fighting. It also deals with the dangers of pride and pushing oneself too far. This is top-notch Dragon Ball Z.

A word of warning to those with children. There are many people who say Kai is bloodless and less violent than the original series. While it's true that there are stricter broadcasting laws in Japan now making DBZ Kai slightly less violent than the original TV series, it's still a violent show. Don't think otherwise. Kai is less violent and bloody than original DBZ, but only slightly.

I'll keep this as short as possible. This is advertised as 16:9. It is not. It's in 4:3 format with black bars on the sides. Resolution is crisp and audio is phenomenal. These are also the uncut versions with the occasional cursing and almost all of the blood and "gore" from the original version of the series. This "season" starts off when Goku kills Frieza and ends when Cell attains his perfect form (just to clarify.) Be warned, watching this season will make you want to buy the next one.

This is my favorite DBZ Kai season out to date!

This Review Will First talk about the packaging/contents, then thoughts on actual film.

Packaging:
This came from amazon in a small brown cardboard envelope type package. I would say its pretty safe from damage because the contents when opened were not crushed and was wrapped in plastic to protect from scratches. When I removed the plastic wrap, I noticed that the case comes in a sleeve that has the exact case art on it. I don't understand why it has the exact same print on the sleeve as it does on the case but it's okay, the sleeve still adds a nice quality look to it. When opening the case I found a DBZ Game ad, and a survey. The case is see through so you can read the episode list printed on the back of the case cover paper. And Of course the four disks.

Film:
If you've watched or heard about the kai, you know it has been refined, shorten, and re voiced. I think the characters sound just as good as the originals. There is some mild language but nothing to offensive. The new animation looks great, especially in blu-ray. It doesn't play in full/wide screen, atleast not by default. What I mean by this is that the aspect ratio looks like it's in 4:3. Im not sure if you can change this, I haven't messed around in the settings.

Overall though If your looking to watch some of those episodes from when you were a kid, or watching them from the first time, its a good idea to pick this up. Less filler and more action!! Dont be counfused, less filler doesn't mean small amount of content. Lots of time spent watching this season!
