About this deal

Released: 18th July 2022. After defeating Majin Buu, life is peaceful once again. Goku has taken a completely new role as a…radish farmer?! With Earth at peace, our heroes have settled into normal lives. But they can’t get too comfortable. Far away, a powerful god awakens to a prophecy revealing his demise at the hands of a formidable being. Can Goku and his friends take on their strongest foe yet? On July 7, 2004, the original Dragon Ball anime series was released in the Dragon Box format. This set included the entire series, spanning 153 episodes, and came with another "Dragon Book" and an exclusive World Martial Arts Tournament diorama designed by the creator of the series, Akira Toriyama. A second Dragon Box (Volume 2) was released on September 18, 2003, with the same price tag as the first one, and included the remainder of the Dragon Ball Z series, episodes 148 through 291 and the second TV special. This set also contained a large amount of DVD extras including more commercials and the entire Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans OVA. Also included with the set was another "Dragon Book", and an exclusive Piccolo action figure. Several additional characters were also given a redub by various voice actors. Stephanie Nadolny reprised her role as Bulma's electronic diary for a redubbed scene. The three Warrior Namekians originally voiced by Sonny Strait in " Frieza Approaches" were redubbed by Gordon Holey, Mark Lancaster, and Brandon Potter. Two of Frieza's soldiers from " Calling the Eternal Dragon", also previously voiced by Strait, were redubbed by Anthony Bowling and Phil Parsons respectively. Minor changes were made to Christopher Neel's original script, sometimes replacing less-mature sounding dialog, and dialogue that may have sounded awkward in the original version. Example:

On February 28, 2005, like Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z before that, Dragon Ball GT was released in the Dragon Box format covering all 64 episodes of Dragon Ball GT, along with the TV Special Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy. The set includes a "Dragon Book" and a universal remote control in the shape of a Dragon Radar. The TV Special has not been re-released. Brice Armstrong continues to replace Dale Kelly as Captain Ginyu in remaining scenes, including the lines involving the "frog" subplot with Bulma, as well as Frog sound effects. However, Dale Kelly's voice was left intact in Episode 92. Selected items are only available for delivery via the Royal Mail 48® service and other items are available for delivery using this service for a charge. Another note is that in the episodes " Memories of Gohan", " Save the World", " Goku's Decision", and " One More Wish", Mark Britten's voice for Ox-King is left intact. Kyle Hebert still redubbed him in most episodes, but not the four listed. Captain Ginyu's croaking in the first-mentioned of those episodes is still performed by Dale Kelly despite Brice Armstrong redubbing most of his material. Fortuneteller Baba's appearance is left intact with Laurie Steele instead of Linda Young redubbing over it. Another note is that Goku has a voice filter added when he powers up to Super Saiyan 3 in front of Innocent Buu and Babidi, which is untouched on the VHS/DVD Single releases.Christopher Sabat redubs his work as Vegeta. Originally, Sabat voiced Vegeta similar to previous English voice actor, Brian Drummond. Later in time, Sabat voiced the character much differently. However, the original battle grunts are left intact from epsiode 68 onwards. This set contains the remainder of the Red Ribbon Army Saga and the General Blue Saga. Episodes 58-61 are part of the Commander Red Saga. There are little changes, though the Pirate Robot's filter was removed from the episodes it featured and the voice left at its original pitch. After defeating Majin Buu, life is peaceful once again. Goku has taken a completely new role as a…radish farmer?! With Earth at peace, our heroes have settled into normal lives. But they can’t get too comfortable. Far away, a powerful god awakens to a prophecy revealing his demise at the hands of a formidable being. Can Goku and his friends take on their strongest foe yet?

NOTE: On the Dragon Ball saga sets that were released prior to the season sets, the subtitle translations were credited to Clyde Mandelin. On the new sets they are credited to Steven J. Simmons - although the translations are almost identical to the earlier sets. Some of the later season set discs are still credited to Mandelin.Our servers are getting hit pretty hard right now. To continue shopping, enter the characters as they are shown Video Post & Transfer was responsible for the restoration process, during which they used the original 16mm negative, taken from FUNimation's film vault. The scene where Bulma escapes from the cave to steal the Dragon Balls was completely redubbed, possibly owing to the master recordings being lost or too damaged to use. Other small changes were made to the script. All other scenes with Bulma were left completely intact.

Interestingly, these box sets, still have a "Clyde Mandelin" credit in the translations area, and do not give a credit to Steve Simmons like the Dragon Ball season sets do. There is a glitch in the Marathon Mode in which footage prior to the title card does not play. As such, the pre-title card sequence in " The New Threat", introducing the series, is cut off if the Marathon Mode is chosen. It has also been said that FUNimation lied in the featurette, Dragon Ball Z Rebirth. At one point, there is a comparison between original film print and "remastered" print. Some have noted that the original film print side is still the "remastered" frame, just sped up to reveal grain. A reason for this may be that FUNimation just created that side to show the audience how the prints did somewhat look alike. Telling from the original frame on top, the picture is most likely that of how it was portrayed.Unlike the first season, the set has received little controversy (most of the fans complaints are identical to the previous set). Some fans complain of the redub, including of not redubbing characters done by Sean Schemmel (Goku, Nail, and King Kai; Sean Schemmel originally voiced Goku in a similar pitch to Peter Kelamis before developing his own better-known voice in the Frieza Saga). Christopher Sabat redubs Mike McFarland as Mez when the Ginyu Force falls into Hell. Mark Britten is retained as Goz. April 14, 2006, saw the release of all of the Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z movies in Dragon Box format. This set included 8 DVDs, another "Dragon Book", and two exclusive life size transceivers, functional walkie-talkies modeled after the scouters used in the Dragon Ball Z TV series. Lead by colorist Steve Franko, all 291 episodes of Dragon Ball Z were given a series of clean-ups. First was color correction, which Franko stated was little to none, using a Da Vinci 2K Plus Color Corrector. Next came the restoration process: the film was first processed by a Digital Vision DVNR 1000 HD Noise Reducer, which eliminated much of the video noise and grain that was in the system. Next was the Teranex, which was the final process of the clean-up. Franko stated in an interview that it took over 2 million dollars' worth of equipment to carry out the restoration. However, when the prices for each individual piece of equipment are added up, the equipment actually cost closer to 1 million eight hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars. The entire process was done at 23.976fps (often referred to as 24fps for shorthand), the original framerate of the masters. Christopher Sabat replaces Vic Mignogna and Mark Britten as Burter. Mignogna was supposed to handle Burter's redubbing from the original Ultimate Uncut dub of the Namek Saga, but was unavailable. Sabat completely replaced Mignogna in the Namek Saga material as well.
