As expected Funimation dished out the "Season Sets" for the show, most likely to replace the "Parts sets", with the release of "Dragon Ball Z Kai Season One" back in October 2011. Season One was was released to replace Dragon Ball Z Kai Parts 1 & 2, but with the Shunsuke Kikuchi musical score. However shortly after it's release many who bought the product found that the set did not contain the Shunsuke Kikuchi, but still containing the Kenji Yamamoto score despite indicating on the back of the box that it would have the replaced score. After many re-stocks and call backs from the product it was obvious that Funimation had clearly messed up the release and therefore have no choice but to re-release the product, again, but with the replaced score.
To put it simple this product is a re-release of last years Dragon Ball Z Kai Season One, but this time, now confirmed, containing the replaced Shunsuke Kikuchi score.
Funimation has been throwing around Dragon Ball Z releases for years from Volume sets to those hopefully forgotten Orange bricks sets. So what makes this new release any different from the rest?
Well this isn't the original Dragon Ball Z TV Show but a "Refreshed" edition of the show.Read more ›
I am thrilled to say that I was right. [NOTE: This is not the edited version of Kai that aired on Nicktoons. This is the UNCUT version of DBZ Kai that contains blood and swearing.] DBZ Kai is exactly what I wanted and more. First of all, I have the say that the script is WAY better than that of the dub I grew up with. It is manga-accurate and never has those cheesy, cornball moments that the other English dubs have had. Also, considering that they have had 10 years of voice-acting experience, the English actors (mostly the same with a few changes) are absolutely superb this time around. Sean Schemmel completely embodies Goku, as does Chris Sabat as Vegeta and Piccolo (the voices are actually completely distinguishable from each other now). Everyone else is great as well.Read more ›
The picture is beautiful and vibrant, as much softer colors were used in its restoration. The video has two black bars on the side of the image to fit a 16:9 TV, while still keeping the series in its correct 4:3 aspect ration. Some may dislike that, but I personally prefer it. I find that when you stretch the image to fit the full 16:9 AR, quality is lost. When you crop the image, you obviously lose parts of the image. So 4:3 is perfect to me because that is the way the series was truly meant to be seen. You get the entire image in high definition. My only gripes with Kai concern some of the reanimated scenes. Many of them were just flat out ugly, and would have looked better if they were recolored in the same manner as most of the other scenes. But that's a minor complaint.
The audio is great as well. The dub by all accounts is fantastic. I prefer the Japanese audio, so I strictly watch the series with the Japanese audio.Read more ›
