Editorial Reviews

Earth's peace is forever shattered by the hostile arrival of an alien mercenary whose evil knows no bounds. This new menace's campaign of terror begins by ruthlessly beating Earth's greatest hero within an inch of his life. Complicating matters is the shocking revelation that there is more to this sinister invader than meets the eye. Contains three classic episdes: The New Threat, Reunions and Unlikely Alliance. This is the story in its full uncut glory. This is the ultimate Dragon Ball Z.

This DVD is the first volume of the Uncut Dragon Ball Z Saian Saga episodes. These are unedited and uncensored and were never seen on US television. This DVD has the first three episodes on it. These episodes may or may not have ever been seen because of Pioneer Ent. deleting whole episodes and taking clips from several different episodes and making them one single episode. This DVD is worth buying to any Dragon Ball fan.

This is the best, original and uncut Vegeta saga all together.

Just to warn all DBZ Fans, pay no attention to the review by C King, he is obviously not a true DBZ fan or an old guy who does not belong to true DBZ fan generations because he is saying that Pioneers version is the original version and that funimation have added too much blood to try and make it look better, which can only mean he saw the pioneer version but did not know anything about pioneer cutting 15 or more episodes worth of footage out of the original and he thinks funimation are just trying to impress us when as we know all true DBZ fans are fully aware that when it first came to the USA too much was cut out, plus all true animated fans are also aware no one is aloud to add stuff to a movie except for the owners, plus if so it is normally brand new scenes and not just bits onto a scene. plus if this was not the original version we would not be able to also be watching the original uncut japanese verion which has the exact same scenes as the English Dubbed version.

C King does not know what he is on about, Funimation have bean so good, excelent, and Marvelous to us by presenting it in the original version so we can finally get to see all 291 original uncut episodes in English and the original Japanese Versions.

A Kid's Review on June 29, 2005
First, I'm not a kid. It's just easier to use the kid's review format. Next, I am reviewing about the Dragon Ball Z Saiyan Showdown DVD. duh...

After Saban had left FUNimation after the first two seasons, FUNimation had started to release the Ginyu episodes and after uncut and bilingual on DVD. FUNimation had planned to, once the sub-license to Pioneer for these episodes expired, re-release them uncut and bilingual. However, when FUNimation had re-released this they had made it trilingual. You get two English tracks, 5.1 Surround and Stereo, the Original Japanese which is included, as well as the English Stereo, on all other UNCUT DVDs, and Spanish. The Japanese and Spanish versions are recorded in mono as they were originally premiered on TV. The English tracks are brand new unlike the Japanese and Spanish. Most of the English script is the same taken from the original dub in 1996(?) and the Spanish is almost the same as the Original Japanese.

This disc has 3 episodes(why?) like most other FUNimation DVD's. This DVD has scenes that were removed from the original dub so some of the content is new to us. If you were wondering this begins at the beginning and ends with the beginning of the fight with Raditz. On the English track the original opening Cha-la Head Cha-la was removed and replaced with rock music which to me is worse than Rock the Dragon(sorry) with scenes from the series covered with red and black. The ending is the same way. However, the Japanese and Spanish versions use Cha-la as the opening(the Spanish song is dubbed in Spanish) and ZENKAI power (that's not the full title, it's soooo long) as the ending. The eye-catches are intact with different music for the English Version.

Extras include a Goku vs.

About a month or two ago I was hyping up on the DBZ Saiyan Showdown, which I mentioned in the Starter Set review. So, the much-anticipated DVD has finally come out, and I guess it's good... oh, who am I kidding? It's great! Still, though, I have a feeling it could be so much better....

In the Japanese version, we have the usual seiyuu stars... Masako Nozawa(Astro Boy, Galaxy Express 999), Hiromi Tsuru(Ranma 1/2, Trigun), Mayumi Tanaka(One Piece, Sakura Wars), Shigeru Chiba(Yu Yu Hakusho, Ranma 1/2), Toshio Furukawa(Urusei Yatsura, Dead or Alive VG series), and the . The usual quality stuff. However, I'm also pleased to note that the FUNimation seems to have also gotten their act together(compared to, say, the Frieza battle). Sean Schmell and Chris Sabat are still Goku and Piccolo, respectively. Justin Cook does a pretty good Raditz. My one major complaint though? A lot of the lines for the new dub are the exact same as in the original English version. For example, Mike McFarland's(as Master Roshi) speech on how Goku lost his memory is nearly identical to the one Ian Corlett gave for Roshi back in 1996. The only difference is this time, Master Roshi mentions that Goku nearly dies from his head injury before saying how he went on to become "a happy, loving boy." On the bright side, I don't think there will be any mention of Tenshinhan saying he can grow his arms back or Vegeta saying how Bardock was "A brilliant scientist," this time around(although I still worry about the "3-eyed Cowboy" line.) Then again, Raditz DOES still say that Vegeta was destroyed only 3 years ago......

Also happily stated, the uncut FINALLY means no edits. For example, no inserted dialogue of people using parachutes to save their lives(this is DBZ, not G.I. Joe!
