  • A Classic Show

    What can I say? This show aired on Toonami for a long time, and really popularized it as well as helped popularize Cartoon Network. I watched the show when I was little, yet I didn't really know all that much about it. I knew Goku and I knew Piccolo, but that was about it. Little did I know, it would be one of the main reasons I enjoy anime. So sometime in mid 2005 I was sitting on my butt watching Cartoon Network (my favorite network at the time, and it still is). My parents weren't home so I could stay up late. I stayed up to watch Dragonball Z (Uncut) at 10:30, and the episode was "A New Friend". It really impressed me, since I didn't really know much about Gohan, and it really made me like the show. I stayed up until 11:30 that night, and went to bed after Futurama (which my mom wouldn't let me watch), because I got really tired. I stayed up the next day to watch the next one. And I later ended up taping the show on VHS, because I was extremely hooked. My parents and sister were somewhat concerned with me watching it because of the mild language, violence, and nudity. But I didn't really care. So, I ended up getting the uncut DVDs when they were released, and I was a huge fan. I realise a lot of flaws the show had now with the pacing, and how it got less exciting after the Frieza Saga, but this show still stands as a great one, and one I would watch again and again.moreless
  • A blast from the past...with a new twist!

    Back in 1998, I saw DBZ for the 1st time when it 1st came to Cartoon Network. There were 53 episodes and the character's voices were done by the Ocean Cast. In 1999, FUNimation themselves took over and got new music, new voices and less editing. It turned out those 1st 53 episodes were actually 67 episodes edited and cut down to 53. It seemed the United States could not truly see all of DBZ…until 2005 that is. In 2005, the early episodes were aired on Cartoon Network in their glorious, full, uncut 67 episode form! All cut footage was back, new music was scored and the FUNimation cast provided the voices for the characters! This was a treat for all U.S. fans to see what they couldn't see before; plus having the show re-dubbed was an extra treat for me. I prefer to watch the FUNimation Dub (U.S. 1999-2003 dub + the 2005 re-dubbed episodes) of Dragonball Z (and its prequel & sequel). I know the dub isn't 100% accurate to the original; but I watch the show for fun, so I can watch it happily. I do recommend the Uncut 67 Episodes over the Edited 53 Episodes.moreless
