    Ok this is the version that was uncut and played on toonami back in the day. This series will have the bruce faulconer track but not this early in the season, for those of you who really want his themes, they start at season 3-4. Anyways this has been cropped so there are ppl that cry that there is some stuff cut off but its very minor and I dont believe it takes away from the experience. This was awesome watching a little more crisp then when it was on Cartoon Network and really brought out the inner child in me. Love the extras on these blu rays, they are def something worth watching. Of course if you love DBZ get this, its amazing the resurgence this show has had in the last few months. This is the start to my new blu ray DBZ collection. A must have for fans.

    Beyond Expectations

    I was always fond of watching DragonBall Z on toonami growing up, but never had a chance to experience the entire saga as a whole. Though, I was really concerned as to how I should re-enter the saga via media format. I finally came to a decision and purchased the first season of DBZ in the new blu-ray collection, given there was previously the kai collection which edited a slew of action/voices provided it also was stopped and never completed. I must say it exceeds my expectations! Everything is well done with this sorta of remastering of the original episodes. I'm aware of the cropping concerns, but no need to worry. Everything within the first season is well done with small minor issues regarding the first episode. But none the less, and excellent decision and a wise purchase for those looking to enter the DragonBall Z series.

    Being a Dragonball fan since it was first introduced in the US back in 1996. So seeing it in released on Blu-ray a second time I got to admit that I was a bit worried since they had stop releasing them a couple of years ago since they didn't want to "mess" up the process by transferring frame-by-frame by overall I am pleased with the results. Most people didn't like the transfer to 16:9 widescreen format as most people preferred the 4:3 full-frame format but I can't complain. Overall, Great way to start recollecting DBZ, this time in Blu-ray format.

    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.

    If you are a first time viewer of this series - I would recommend starting with Dragonball, which you can find on DVD (can also be found at Best Buy). An excellent package for newcomers to this series and collector's alike. It almost looks like a brand new show with the touched up colors and 'clean' compared to its original TV airing. The aspect ratio is not original "full frame" (you can google this if you want a comparison), but this release does what it set out to do.

    Highest quality DBZ has ever been. Sure the grain is gone, but I owned a level set with the grain and I did not like the grain. It does cut off a Tiny bit of every scene but funimation went scene by scene to make sure they only cut out as unimportant/noticeable parts of the scene, so usually it isn't to obviously, besides this is what got the majority vote so clearly this is what most people interested in buying it should want. It is a classic and I have loved every second of rewarching it!

    I recently started collecting these DBZ seasons on blu-ray. These are worth getting because I believe teh blu-ray specification is here to stay for at least 5 years. Just be aware that because the format of blurays are 16:9 ratio, some of the original video which was made in 4:3 ratio is cropped. However, reviews on amazon and other sites say that the cropping is actually well done for these blu-ray discs.

    All, I've ever seen of DBZ before is random bits and pieces of whatever series my younger brother was watching while growing up, so it's great to start the story from the beginning. Beautiful animations and wonderful presentation. Widescreen looks much different than what I vaguely remember from way back when. Great stuff, excited to see the rest of the show!
