    I just recieved my copy of Dragon Ball Z Kai on Blu-ray today. ( gotta love Rightstuf ) Anyway this is AMAZING ! packaging is awesome, quality is awesome, sound is awesome, redub is awesome, opening and closing credits, awesome. ( Keyword; just AWESOME ! lol ) But anyway this comes with 13 episodes; 9 on the first disc and 4 on the second disc. ( In my opinion I think the DVD version is going to have 7 in the first and 6 on the second ) There aren’t any extras but hey who CARES ! The redub is better then I expected. Although its the same voice actors they just act better then original DBZ and better script ( but thats probably because org DBZ was dubbed like 12 years ago ) Sond is of course 5.1 and Japanese 2.0. And Finally ! they have next episode previews in english ! Well.. nothing else I really can say..just have to GET IT ! and support DBZKai ! ( I’ll probably post pics up later today or tomorrow) =P

    It’s Not Starved, It’s Dieting, May 19, 2010

    Kai (Dragon Ball Z minus the filler) has been the subject of many debates which I have participated in.
    Some parties argue that it is an unnecessary trimming of an already great show, while others say that the
    lack of filler helps viewers focus on the core story and key plot points of “Dragon Ball Z.” As somebody
    who owns all of the “Orange Box”-ed “DBZ” sets, and has seen every episode over the course of 3 or 4 years,
    I can firmly say that I believe the latter party more. All of those annoying excuses to recycle animation,
    all of those perfunctory attempts at “deepening characters”, and the overly-long attack proclamations have
    all vanished, leaving us with what made the original “Dragon Ball” manga so great: fast clip, quick battles,
    and no lag between plot points. Whether you’re a DBZ newbie or just a seasoned veteran, “Kai” is a worthy
    purchase, especially at the price Amazon’s offering it at.

    So Many Misconceptions…, May 2, 2010

    This review is from: Dragon Ball Z Kai: Part One [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    I have to say there are so many misconceptions with this series that it’s not even funny. Let’s just go over a few of them, shall we?

    1: This is a rip-off because there will be over 270 episodes!
    -Wrong. This series is MUCH SHORTER. By Episode 13, Goku is already fighting Vegeta, as opposed to being in the 30’s by then. In fact, there’s probably only going to be up to 150 episodes at the MOST according to Toei Animation themselves.

    2: This isn’t a new series, so no one will want it.
    -Also wrong. While it’s not a new series, the logic behind a re-release is to introduce a new generation of youth to the series and create a new generation of fans. Plus it’s also going to be airing on television again soon, though again it will be severely edited.

    3: The artwork is cheap!
    -While it’s hardly groundbreaking, the artwork is NOT cheap. It’s simply a touch-up of the existing film, and anything that couldn’t be saved or deteriorated too much had to be redrawn. They did that as little as possible to maintain the classic look and style that Toriyama-sensei gave to his world.

    4: The acting is horrible and so is the script!
    -The thing is, this was Funimation’s first big anime. Most of the voice actors had not only no experience, but were STAFF working at the studio. They had to pick up the slack after a contract dispute with the previous cast went awry, and despite this, they still managed to make it a classic.

    However, even if one plays the games, you can notice these actors have improved greatly over time. And this is a complete and utter redub. So they’re bringing all their added talent and experience into this with a much better script. I myself have heard some of the new dubbing, and you can actually FEEL the emotions in the characters’ voices.

    And finally…

    5: Cutting out the filler removes what let you get to know the characters better!
    -Actually, the thing is… the way the characters are presented in the filler (With exception perhaps to the Garlic Jr Saga) are often times not the way they really are at all. for example, filler made Roshi into an even greater pervert than he was, made Krillin into a mere comic relief character half the time (which he’s not), made Gohan seem to be much more into fighting than he actually was, etc. What gives you the character development and background is the series DRAGON BALL, which is what comes before DBZ in the first place.

    Now as for what this is… this was the original DBZ story as it was written by the author. This is the characters being treated with respect and not bashed because they look funny, this is the villains being darker, this is the story with more flow… It’s quite literally the manga (comic) in anime (animated) form. It’s got a great new dub, new script, even in the Japanese version, and an HD touch-up on the animation. Now we seem to think HD has to fit a certain eye-popping criteria, but that’s not always the case. What it means is that it’s crystal clear and smooth, no visible defects, not as much grainy effect.

    If you’re new to the series, I suggest you watch. If you’re not new to the series, you’ll love it anyways. (But parents be warned, DBZ uncut is NOT the same as what you’ll see on TV. More violent, for sure)

    But it’s well worth a purchase. :)
