This is a review for the Blu-ray version of the series.
As the fight draws to a close, Goku thinks this is the end of the trouble they will have, but little do they know what fate has in store for them...
Trunks, a stranger comes to Namek in search of the humans to give them a harsh message that the Androids will come for them and they think less of the humans than they did. As the planet breaks apart, Goku and Frieza have shot off in different directions, and none can be found. Not that it's going to do them any good as Goku couldn't beat them in a fight anyway.
Not everything goes as planned for Vegeta as he has to fight alongside Goku and co if he wants to fight the oncoming Frieza's Ginyu force - whose main reason for fighting is to stop them getting the Dragon Balls.
Dragon Ball is almost everyone's favourite anime series as it was one of the first to reach our shores, and now that it's been updated with re mastered sound visuals and special effects, it has also become much more watch-able.
Dragon Ball is almost everyone's favourite anime series as it was one of the first to reach our shores, and now that it's been updated with re mastered sound visuals and special effects, it has also become much more watchable. The main bonus to this series is that it’s much better to watch in HD on Blu-ray. Visually it is much more appealing and only has the best bits in it, which if you know how long the series is, is a very good idea. The English dub of Dragon Ball Z KAI Season 2 has improved with a cast that has finally grasped what the characters were trying to show in the Japanese version. This time around the visuals and dubbing meet in the middle and feel right.
What many will find are the conflicting opinions others will have on what they think of this version and the original as there are those out there who prefer the Japanese subbed versions with all the original dialogue included, original theme tune and songs, while the rest will enjoy the new dubbed versions, preferring the fact that effort has gone into the dubbing by well-known English voice actors, while only a few things were actually changed. Dragon Ball Z KAI Season 2 has great cover art, an easier to follow story, characters who look like they fit with the dubbing and some exiting battles with surprises thrown in.
Bonus Material: Text less Opening Song, Text less Closing Song and Trailers for other anime series.
Verdict:For a version that is well cut, and concentrates on the best bits of the original anime series and is more faithful to the original manga - this is for you!
