Majin Buu’s spree of terror continues, and his ruthlessness knows no bounds! In his quest to eliminate the remaining Z-Fighters, Buu has cut a path of destruction across the face of the Earth, leaving a trail of devastation so utterly complete that it may even be beyond the power of the Dragon Balls to repair...
With their efforts to stop Majin Buu quickly proving futile, the Z-Fighters have but one remaining hope against this seemingly invincible foe—the Fusion Technique! But for this desperate plan to succeed, Goku will have to join forces with his oldest rival, Vegeta! Can the combined efforts of these two mighty Saiyan warriors put a stop to Majin Buu once and for all? The final battle for the fate of the universe begins!

The final season of Dragon Ball Z picks up where season 8 left off, with Trunks, Gohan, Goten, Vegeta, and Goku fighting to save the universe from the monster Majin Buu. The protracted battle lasts 33 episodes (#254 to #286). Buu has the color and texture of bubble gum: The Saiyans punch him out, blast off limbs, and blow him into smithereens, only to see him return to his original form. Buu also mutates constantly. He fights himself--his "good" side vs. the purely evil one; he grows stronger when he absorbs Goten, Trunks, Gohan, and Piccolo, but somehow gets even stronger when he "de-absorbs" them. The resolution, involving the combined efforts of the Z-fighters, the Kais, and the Namekian Dragon Balls, leaves the filmmakers with nothing to fill the remaining episodes, so they jump the story ahead 10 years. Trunks and Goten are teenagers, Gohan and Videl have a daughter, Pan. Although he's a grandfather, Goku remains as irrepressible and irresponsible as ever. When Mr. Satan organizes another martial arts tournament, Goku enters to take on a mysterious young fighter, then cheerfully abandons his family to train the new champion. It's a weak ending for one of the most popular series in anime history. (Rated TV PG: suitable for ages 8 and older: violence, violence against women, tobacco and alcohol use, ethnic stereotypes, brief nudity) --Charles Solomon

Some people may favor higher-quality audio of English Dub. But it did not match every single word said in Japanese closely or wholly, essentially a localized version of Dragon Ball Z using the same video footage and basic storyline, with some differences in the interpretation of events. To me, Boo Saga established the ending for both the manga and Dragon Ball Z, once again confirming Goku is the strongest man in the universe who defeated the seemingly invincible Kid Boo against all odds, with the power donated by the people of earth who are pushed to their limits. The digital remastering of video footage is well done. I generally enjoy the video quality pretty much. The original producer of Dragon Ball Z did re-dub the Japanese audio in higher quality in a new installment, called Dragon Ball Z Kai (or Dragon Ball Kai), but instead for the original uncut version like its licensee did, the producer instead chose to create a "streamlined" version of it using the same video footage, with Boo Saga may be released in the future according to some rumors. Personally, I would favor the re-dubbing of Japanese audio the original uncut Dragon Ball Z. As such, I completely dismissed "Kai" entirely when I have Dragon Ball anime series (508 episodes, 16 seasons) in possession, especially FUNimation did do a good job in the digital remastering of video footage. The original Japanese audio may be mono, but the Japanese audio track in Dragon Ball Z season sets are stereos, perhaps created by putting two same mono tracks into two channels. Dragon Ball Season Sets (the first installments) did have the one-channel mono tracks.
Frankly, they did not have much time left to do the re-dub for Japanese audio with the original sound actors, as they are getting older. If they chose different actors, it would no longer be "original".
If the local dubbing did not create its own interpretation or version of the story, I would happily jump over to English dubbing. Until then, I am ready to put up with this Japanese audio track, with English subtitle, of course.
Do I like Boo Saga? I like it so much that I recently published a blog post at [...] titled "Boo Saga, Goku, and Copyright". You can also see the picture taken for the DVD covers at [...] I give Dragon Ball Z Season 9 and the entire Dragon Ball anime series 5 stars!
These disks are great quality, they give you the option in choosing the language subs or dubs.
