"Well, I enjoyed this first of the many DVD's that Pioneer made of the Dragonball Z episodes. I was a little disappionted in this one though. I was expecting some extra stuff to be added on the DVD that wasn't on the VHS version. Like the DVD version of The Dead Zone had some deleted TV scenes that really kicked ***. Also, The World's Strongest had a Battle Arena option that showed the many fights of Goku. I thought that option was a great idea. Anyways, there are some things that are good about this title. The picture and sound quality are at its highest. And if you have the proper equipment, that makes the experience even more fulfilling. Well, that's my two-cents on this title. Just an average DVD that could have been a great DVD if some more effort were put into it."
Great way to get Started with DBZ!

"I recently got hooked on DragonBall Z (DBZ) from Cartoon Network's Toonami, and I saw this DVD for such a great price and I went for it....It is worth it! This DVD introduces you to all the main Characters with the first 4 Episodes of this great Series. Unfortunatly, this DVD doesn't have subtitles nor is Closed Captioned, but the english dub works well. A Nice plus about the DVD is that it also gives you the previews for all of the Episodes on the Next DVD. It also gives you a brief introduction to Goku and the story behind the original 'DragonBall' Series in case you didn't get to see them. This DVD is a great way to get started with anime! Buy the DVD instead of VHS if you can, it works out better! Great DVD!"
DBZ all the way

"I've recently become hooked on the craze known as Dragon Ball Z, and let me tell it is a ride. Although the first 14 or so volumes are edited, thanks to Saban, that's right, the same people you bring you Mighty Morphine Power Rangers. They are not the full versions, but the newer ones that take place on Namek have the edited and uncut, but anyway, for the first DVD in this series, it is awesome. It really sets up what is a great adventure and captures the imagination of the viewer. The only bad thing about this DVD is the edit, but, once the newer ones come out on DVD, no one will have to worry about seeing edited cartoons again."
Great Anime, Ok DVD

"I love DBZ (thanks to a pokemon magazine i bought) so I thought this would cool to watch. I knew this was the old version, but I can't get the new uncut ones so I got this. This DVD has the first 4 episodes of DBZ in a movie format( yes a MOVIE format, so it dosen't tell you which episode you're watching). This is a cheaply made DVD that nothing to do except watch the episodes. When you put the DVD in It does tell you the history of the Dragonballs and the "movie" starts. The voices aren't the best (and Master Roshi's and Krillin's voices are ESPECILLY bad.) I would reccommed this if you're a beginner, but if you're a collector wait for the (supposdely) New Saiyan Saga on dvd soon. (Right I'll belive it when I see it. Bojack SHOULD BE OUT NOW AND IT ISN'T so i'll belive when i see it.)"
Do I really have to say?

"Hey What can i say about it? Its a must have for me. Dragonball Z takes me on a ride and leaves me in a dream world and i just keep wanting more. If you haven't seen it yet, and your a anime junky like myself, then you have to get it. If you have seen it then thats what your here for and you need no help from me, you know you want it already. Just want to clear something up, I don't care how old you are you are going to love this, I am 21 and never get tired of the action. Plan and simple, this collection will have all you couch potatos up on you feet. Since I have been a dragonball freak, I lost 15 pounds......NO JOKE! JUST BUY IT AND YOU WILL HAVE NO REGRETS, AND YOUR ALSO GETTING A BIG SAVING SO WHATS NOT TO LOVE ABOUT IT!"
