"FUNimation did an outstanding job on the dubs for Dragon Ball Z, but they seemed to hurry through the dubs of GT. They didn't stop and think "How Cheesy will This Sound?" or "Wait...Isn't Pan 15?" No, FUNimation just used a collective of old voices from Z and tried to do a show with it. It doesn't exactly work. Add the rap/rock music track, and you've got a wierd show. The biggest things wrong with the dub is the absaence of Sean Schemell (Adult Goku) which takes away so much. There are also too few appearences by Christopher Sabat (Vegeta, Piccolo.)
But the Japanese version is perfect. The voices are great, the dialouge is well-written and funny and the music is outstanding. And FUNimation delivers it too us perfectly on this DVD. Unlike on the Z dvd's, where the sound is kept in mono and sounding 50 years old. (Although Z and GT are both pretty old) the sound is great and is as good as the english dub.
Okay, onto the main review.
The Lost Episodes is just episodes 1-15 that FUNimation didn't do previously. Now they are all here, making the full 64 episode set of GT. GT itself is a good series, nt as good as Z but keeping the same spirit. Akira Toriyama, japanese author of Z, must have been heavily involved in the spin-off of of Z. In short, buy this, then volumes 2-5, and then buy Affliction all the way to Generations.
And switch it to Japanese.
