The Greatest Collection of the Greatest Anime
on January 25, 2010
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.
