Dragonball Z is famous across the globe, most noted for being one of the all time most popular anime series ever created. The show does an excellent job of staying true to the mangas, with few name changes and plot adjustments. This collection happens to be my personal favorite collection of all of the available ones to choose from. Why? It's because of the interesting sagas that it contains.

The Garlic Jr Saga is a great series of episodes that is highly overlooked. Garlic has returned from his "Dead Zone" imprisonment. He now seeks revenge on the earthlings, and will stop at nothing to continue his attack on Piccolo and Kami for the death of his father. Armed with new henchmen and still gifted with immortality, it seems as if Garlic Jr is unstoppable. The fight between Gohan, Krillin, Piccolo and Garlic Jr is one of the most action packed ones ever placed within the anime. The plot is great, and the show does a great job of keeping the viewer enticed and engaged through the many surprising twists hidden within this saga.

The second Saga that this collection contains is one of the most popular sagas of the show, the Trunks Saga. The Trunks Saga marks the arrival of Trunks and the announcement of the impending doom of the entire planet. The addition of this saga marked a new chapter in the Dragonball Z universe. It was once viewed "impossible" to become a Super Saiyan, but as this saga proves, Super Saiyan is no longer a feet unachievable by Saiyans. With the introduction of this saga, power levels increase and enemies once viewed as formidable are no longer so. Once viewed as the strongest being in the universe, Frieza arrives on Earth seeking revenge for his near-death experience that was handed to him on Namek by Goku. Frieza knows that Goku is going to arrive late, so he intends to have some fun with the planet's inhabitants before Goku arrives. Little did he know that another Super Saiyan exists. Trunks quickly dispatches the villain and his father in a matter of seconds. He then goes on to reveal the future that will come to pass, a future where everyone on Earth has been killed by a pair of diabolical androids/cyborgs.

This is a nice little DVD collection. It comes in a nicely sized box with a folding DVD case. The collection pack comes with six DVDs containing remastered footage from the anime. The quality of the images has been touched up, but it also contains image cropping. The sound is better, a much sharper, cleaner quality, but the volume level could use some work, seeing as the actual episodes are more quiet than the rest of the DVD contents. This collection is simply amazing in every way conceivable. A perfect season to purchase if you're a DBZ fan.

I loved this entire season. The Garlic JR saga was filler, but it's sorta entertaining also. The introduction into the androids is pretty solid. My only problem with this is who I bought it from. I don't know how, but goHastings managed to to include bread crumbs into my season set, along with a messed up booklet. Let this be learned to NEVER buy from them.

I ordered the whole DB/Z/GT collection. I was thrilled when I got them. I started to watch Season Four but when I put the first disc of this season in it wouldn't play. I checked the disc itself, and it was damaged. If not for that, I'd give it five stars. Every other disc to this point has been perfect. Nothing against the series, just a fluke I'm sure.

This season is broken into two parts. 1st is the Garlic Jr. Saga and the 2nd is the Android Saga. These sagas are completely unrelated and have no decent transition. The Garlic Jr. Saga was terrible with the main antagonist having recovered from a fate worse than death that resulted from when he opened a portal in a previous saga. The story line was predictable and without much growth. This season leaves the Android saga incomplete ending on cliff hangers, which means I have to buy season 5 to know what happens next. Since the series has redundant flashbacks and I really just wanted the Android saga, I should have just bought season 5.

I know a lot of people don't like the orange bricks since the series is cropped in 16:9 instead of being 4:3. Trust me, I know your pain losing some of the picture. However with the Blu-rays being cropped too and the Dragon Box sets being expensive as hell, this is your best bet having DBZ in English on DVD. I can point out a handful of times in each episode where the heads are cut off from the cropping but the picture is remastered in comparison to the old VHS releases. This set is perfect except for the cropping. Get past that and you got DBZ!

You know how it is. The Dragonbox is probably the way to go if you're a super fan. I am a big fan and the 2-inches or so that they cut off here was a little irritating. I will say that this gets bonus points for nostalgia for including the Bruce Falconer score, which the Dragonbox doesn't have. So if that's a deal-breaker for you then this is the way to go.

Trunks shows up, some filler stuff with the garlic saga and a solid finish with the Android this, through a party with sexy women....they will love watching it and will love you. price wise this is a bargain for how much better this will make your life

This arrived super fast within a day or two of ordering. I didn't expect this to arrive so soon. I bought this as a gift for my fiancé for his birthday. His birthday won't occur for a few weeks so his gift is just teasing him every time he sees it now, especially since I keep it in plain sight. Overall, we love it!
