    One of the Best Seasons

    This is the Majin Vegeta season. Everything goes down. The Tenkaichi Budokai is in play along with Goku hitting SSJ3 for the first time while fighting Boo! I love it! The remastered versions are really good IMHO, although the crop can be a bit annoying! Kai hasn't gone this far in the series, so there is nothing to compare there (although Kai, even with it's superior original aspect ratio, still ranks far below the standard blu ray box sets with filler - quality wise, and what I hate most, the constant editing and censorship even in dialogue). The best us fans had were the Level box sets with the original aspect ratio and amazing remastering, very sadly discontinued after the Saiyan Arc. What gets me the most about the current box sets is the unfortunate crop... it makes the image closer zoomier looking producing a "thick" line effect to many memorable scenes. Had they kept it the original aspect ratio this would not be evident (same goes for all the cropped films). All in all this looks far better than the DVD's, and in fact the crops have now been re-aligned in some scenes for a fuller effect. Whether you're a pre-teen or old geezer like me who still remembers child Goku as "Zero" from the few '80's Harmony dub episodes of DB, you're going to love the cleanly mastered versions. Contrasty but smooth, large but subtle, and the best part, the full glory of Japanese mono! To quote Vegeta's favorite term, you'd have to be a bakayaro not to get this if you're a fan!

    Never Gets Old

    I have been watching Dragon Ball and all of its iterations since I was about 5 years old. I love it, I love the action, I love the characters, and I love the plot. Sure there are better animes with better stories and better animation, but you would be hard pressed to find one that influenced and opened the eyes of the western world to anime and all of its glory. Dragon ball was what got most young adults my age hooked and it continues to provide enjoyment to this day.

    Season 8 of 9 in the DBZ series brings our final saga villan to the fight - "Majin Buu". So far I'm on disc 2 of this set and it's only getting better. A fresh new charismatic, funny, yet deadly character in Buu that has all of my interest in anticipating of what's next as each episode ends. A must own for all anime fans. Unfortunately this season 8 set is extremely hard to find in any Best Buy store. Save yourself trouble and order it online on Best Buy.

    Dragon Ball Z on Blu-ray!

    Dragon Ball Z on Blu-ray! Unfortunately, like many of Funimations other releases of Dragon Ball Z this release is also cropped. However, this time it was cropped using pan-and-scan cropping, which is a better method. The remastering process is somewhat mixed. It gives the video quality a very modified look but it still looks pretty good. Overall, this is a pretty good release and probably the best release the American version of the show will ever get.

    The show itself is great The only problem as a collection is that season 4 did NOT come with the case sleeve To have that missing just kills the collection, now it looks tacky Thanks employees of best buy If we get less credit on returns for "missing items" Then i should get some credit for this Free 2-day shipping on a new season 4, something

    I can't give it 5 stars. This version doesn't have many of the scores that made this series so iconic. Many of the moments I remember are connected with music. Majin Boo was even scarier because of the music. Goku becoming SS3 was even more epic due to the score by Bruce Faulconer

    I ahead always seen some of the episodes here and there when I was younger. When I saw that the series was on sleep and lso in blu ray I had to get it so far it has been a great binge watch. At first I didn't think the blu ray version would be that much of a difference from original format but it looked amazing.

    I was sad that Best Buy didn't have season 7 readily available, and I had to order it online to complete my husband's collection. But I was thankful to have found this and season nine on bluray at Best Buy. My husband loves these videos, and he can watch them whenever he wants.
