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.

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

HASH(0x9f50de88) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9f5100f0) out of 5 stars Lightning Strikes Twice! July 8 2013
By Chip - Published on Amazon.com

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!

HASH(0x9f5103a8) out of 5 stars Love the Kai episodes but the number and layout of ... March 3 2015
By Patrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Love the Kai episodes but the number and layout of the episodes for the Season 2 Blu Ray is poor. The season 2 blu ray ends with (spoilers) Freeza being cut in half. The final two episodes of the Freeza saga (Goku escaping, and the aftermath episode of them wishing the nameks to another planet and discovery Goku alive) are apart of the Season 3 Android Saga. It just seems like a cheap ploy to get you to buy season 3. While I plan to buy it because I love the series. I know a lot of people that would just want the Sayain/Freeza Saga complete without buying a 3rd season for 2 episodes.

HASH(0x9f510408) out of 5 stars A great continuation everything about the freiza saga is fixed its now watchable but those annoying flaws persist... Aug. 25 2014

This is definitely the best way to watch Dragonball Z not only does it cut the filler down to nothing everything it keeps in is what is simular to the manga which we all know is action packed without any padding. Also the english voice actors do a great job reprising their roles it isnt exactly the same performances but its for the better. No longer is there any cheezy dialogue here its mostly the same as the manga which yet again is the way Akira wanted it.

However there are 2 glaring problems I cant overlook and its completely unacceptable for dvds I bought. The commericals at the beginning when I boot the disk is unskippable and unfastfowardable meaning every time I want to watch this I have to walk away for 5 minutes so that I can finally get the the main menu to watch. 2nd every single disk has its own unskippable commercials why? WHY? each commercial is 5 minutes long and with four disk if you want to watch a marathon of dbz kai you have to endure unskipable 20 minutes of comercials its so annoying. Thus I cant give it the perfect score 4/5 once the commericals are over the fun begins and yes after those aggravating comericals DBZ Kai is amazing
