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