Three years ago, I caught whiff of a possible English dub for Dragon Ball Z Kai done in the frosty North, by the Sasquatch-breeding Canadians at Ocean Studios. For three years I have waited with bated breath, my eyes opening to the day with fresh hope that the dulcet tones of Doc Harris would course through my ears with "Stand by for Dragon Ball Z... Kai!", only to be struck each day with a sense of unrelenting defeat (moreso than usual). Eventually, I had no choice but to settle into a remarkably steady indifference, puncuated by the occasional glimmer of curiosity (and something somebody in the know told me).
Wow, that looks, moves, and sounds fucking gorgeous. Guaranteed purchase from me when we get it over here. Unf. The only problem I have is that there's a weird glare, an over saturation of color, I think. It can be a little overwhelming.
You watch this, you ignorant little shitfucks. I'm not going to say this shit again (today). I'll show you how to watch this 20 something year old overly long action cartoon for eight year olds the right fucking way (my way). Now, I've had these videos up on my YT account for a while, but I wanted to put them here anyway, in case you don't magically know my account name, because you can't read my mind (how much more worthless can you be?). Now, to some of you, this is preaching to the choir. If you're here and you don't already agree with me on everything (all four of you), you should pay attention. If you do agree with me, sit back down. You're not getting that third slice of Sarah Lee's banana cream pie just yet, and keep that Pabst Blue Ribbon away from your laptop, it'll spill and you won't be able to angrily fap to incest hentai if it ruins your computer, you festering piles of mule snot.
Premise: Some God of Destruction awakens from a long sleep, discovers someone has defeated Freeza, and decides the universe needs balance (which I guess Freeza was providing by being a dick?) and challenges Goku. Despite the participation of Akira Toriyama himself in the development of this new movie, the same DBZ formula is likely to follow.
I wonder how Kaio got a new planet. The Kaioshins, perhaps?
The first person to complain about Goku's voice, I shall stab that person in their very soul. (Though to be honest, the Kamehameha in the end isn't Nozawa's best work.)
They could have chosen a better Kikuchi piece for this. And the sound effect of 16's head being smooshed is delayed because of a sloppy edit. However, Clinkenbeard does an excellent job with the scream. And there's none of that "16, you loved life" bullshit in the script.
How am I supposed to believe that Bardock can become a Super Saiyan? He's a low-class warrior who couldn't even scratch Freeza. Goku at least had trained in 100x gravity and had a zenkai. This is a stupifyingly retarded idea. I like the new animation, though.
Here's a few screenshots for your consideration (Dragon Box on left, Blu-Rays on right):
I still prefer the Dragon Boxes. The BDs look great, but the colors are a little too dark, in my opinion.
However, since the DBoxes are now out of print, I reccommend picking up the "level" Blu-Rays if you can't find the DBoxes.
