Many fans were disappointed with the remastered season sets for several reasons.
The original picture (4:3 full screen) was cropped to wide screen (16:9 wide screen) and because the picture was remastered by a machine some of the side effects were some blurry lines which can be a little distracting.
Although Funimation is a good company their job is dubbing and translating anime, not actually fixing it.
Toei Animation with Pony Crayon fully restored all episodes of the Dragon Ball Z anime from the original 16mm film reels, effectively cleaning the film, frame by frame, of all dirt and scratches and most of the grain. The frame alignment has also been fixed, removing cases of jitter. All done by people!
For this release Funimation hasn't changed the picture or sound at all. Toei Animation and Pony Crayon improved the picture and sound themselves.
The default audio track is the Japanese version with English Subtitles.
A secondary audio track is the English Funimation dub with the original Japanese background music in 5.1 sound. The Ocean Group English dub is not included.
Unfortunately the English dub track with the American background music scored by Bruce Faulconer will not be included for these releases. Nathan Johnson's music score for the first 67 episodes of Funimation's English dub is not included either.
It is assumed this was to prevent loss of video quality.
The original opening and ending credits which were absent from the remastered season sets have been added to all episodes. The opening theme song is "HA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA" and the ending is "Detekoi Tobikiri Zenkai Pawa!".Read more ›
