Dragon Ball Z Kai is a special "director's cut" for the 20th anniversary of the original Dragon Ball Z anime, that re-edits it in a way so that it more closely resembles the original manga. Though DBZ has always had a fun cast of characters and great action scenes, the original anime's greatest flaw was that it was plagued with filler episodes and padding that didn't advance the plot in any significant way, serving only as a means to stall and keep from overtaking the manga. In DBZ Kai, most of this filler is gone, which results in giving the series a much faster pace. The original DBZ had 194 episodes up to the end of the Cell saga; Kai has 98.

FUNimation has taken this opportunity to re-dub the entire series with a script that is more faithful to the original Japanese version. The new script is much better and raises the english dub from "so bad it's good" to "legitimately good." Also, in the decade they've spent playing these characters, the voice actors have improved significantly since DBZ's original run; just compare Sean Schemmel's Goku from 1999 to now and the difference is astounding. A few of the characters' voice actors have been replaced, often for the better. Freeza's new voice in particular is fantastic, much more sinister and a better fit for the character than before.

It's no substitute for reading the manga, but DBZ Kai is a big improvement over the original anime.

The cut of Dragon Ball z it's surely the best ever. A non-stop action series really in the spirit of the manga.

Great picture, great sound but I wanted the American score. Why was it so hard to it right after so many previous attempts?

The Definitive Version of the Frieza Battle July 3 2013
By Mukesh Chumber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Dragon Ball Z Kai Season 2 covers the rest of the Namek storyline, where anti-hero Vegeta must join forces with the protagonists to face Frieza's henchman the Ginyu Force (a parody of the Power Rangers) and prevent them of obtaining the Dragon Ball's. The story gets more intense as while Son Goku (the main protagonist) is arriving on Planet Namek, the evil tyrant Frieza (most powerful being in the entire universe) starts to close in on our heroes.

While Kai is known as a remake of the series, it's mostly just cropped "filler" of the original series to cater more towards the original comic book's pacing. However, the Frieza battle in the original series is known for one of the most notoriously dragged out moments in the series, and Kai's cropping of it is highly appreciated.

The climax on Namek is certainly full of exciting battles, and it does contain some of the series most iconic moments (hint: it has something to do with why Goku is suddenly blonde in the cover art).

Without a doubt, Kai contains a story that is easy to follow, wonderful artwork, and intense battles. If one is looking for a great action cartoon, this will not disappoint.

Lightning Strikes Twice! July 8 2013
By Chip - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I gave DBZ Kai Season One a glowing review. My only "complaint" was that the original Kikuchi music did not align with the scenes as it did in the original series (plus, some of his tracks are not even used). The same holds true for Season Two. However, it is (for me) a minor issue, plus I actually like a lot of the music choices when not comparing the placement to how it was in the original series.

Season Two contains the bulk of my favorite DBZ saga, the Frieza Saga. Even with the original Funimation dubs, I considered the Frieza Saga to be my favorite. Let me say that, of course, most of the filler is cut, allowing the series to move much faster. However, it never feels too fast, and though I am nostalgic for the filler, I did not miss any of it while watching this. Also, I can honestly say that I will never look at the older English dubs the same way again because they cannot hold a candle to Kai's dub. The English dub of DBZ Kai is once again spectacular. Firstly, the script is much more manga accurate once again. Thankfully, there are no more cheesy one-liners from Goku or Frieza. Then, there is the actual acting itself. It is simply SUPERB. Chris Ayres is Frieza this time around, and his voice is exactly how I've always pictured Frieza sounding in my head, ever since I first saw him as a kid. He captures every aspect of the character perfectly, making him out to be an evil, powerful dictator as opposed to simply an upper-class school bully. This is the first time I have been genuinely terrified of Frieza. I mean, I grew up with Linda Young's Frieza, but it simply cannot compare to this one. Not only did her voice not match the character, but the script Funimation gave her was awful. After hearing Frieza's lines in DBZ Kai, I don't know how I ever put up with the original English dub (though, considering I have never read the manga or watched the show in Japanese, I guess I didn't know what I was missing). Everyone else is terrific as well. Chris Sabat does an AMAZING job as both Piccolo and Vegeta here (and of course, the script is much better for him as well). Once again, the cheesy lines are gone ("YES! YES! I CAN DO THIS! UGH!") and both characters are cooler than they have ever been (and I loved them both as a kid); plus, Sabat puts so much raw emotion into both. Krillin and Gohan are also voiced very well once again. This review would not be complete without me mentioning Sean Schemmel as Goku, especially since this is Goku's standout saga as he becomes the Legendary Super Saiyan. Again, gone are the sappy speeches ("Ally to Good! Nightmare to You!") and corny jokes. Rather than get a goofy, quippy superhero SSJ Goku, we get an angry, vengeful SSJ Goku ("I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, SON GOKU!"; and "YOU WILL PAY FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE!"). And I've always loved Sean as Goku (he is the first Goku I've known), but his acting here is the best he has EVER done as Goku. My word! You literally feel the anger and power with every word he speaks. You feel his sadness when Vegeta dies. I just can't express how great he is as Goku here.

Once again, the cleaned-up animation looks beautiful on Blu-Ray. The opening/ending credits and eyecatches are very cool, and the songs are very good as well. For me, this is now the definite way to watch the Frieza saga (in English, anyway). While I still can enjoy the old English dub, it really seems dated now that DBZ Kai exists. Whereas the original Funimation dub of DBZ made it a better-than-average cartoon, DBZ Kai makes it a truly enthralling, epic, almost cinematic experience. I have just ordered Season Three and I can't wait to watch it!

Warning: Sept. 7 2012
By Steven Hanson II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I'm writing this for all the unfortunate souls that do not enjoy the original Shunsuke Kikuchi score. This does not have the Kenji Yamamoto. Yamamoto whom wrote the majority of the music you may have enjoyed on the Nicktoons version of the show. There is no option... Simply the original Japanese soundtrack. While I do enjoy it at parts it does take away from some of the action. While still being the most authentic to manga I still thought I would warn future buyers.

Another great season of Dragon Ball Z Kai July 10 2014
By Maddox Burnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Another great season of Dragon Ball Z Kai. The action continues to move forward, which is one Kai's strong points, in my opinion. For me, every episode feels like a step forward in the plot. Kai does a great job of keeping the meat of the story arcs, and hashing out the integral pieces. All things considered, it's a great buy for fans both new and old.
