Currently on amazon, it's $129.21. However, keep it in your cart it goes on sale for steal, when I bought my copy I got it for $80.
Amazon sells a copy of the whole series for ~$65
Other than that I couldn't find any place that was streaming the 97 anime.
The 97 Anime covers the golden age arc and while it has its flaws its overall a pretty good adaptation. Fun fact: the production studio that made it has only ever worked on two IP... Berserk and literally every pokemon anime.
In 2012 they produced a movie triligy that also covered the golden age arc. The animation is CG, though decent despite this, and the story more closely follows the manga... but the pacing suffers as they essentially crammed more content than the 97 anime into 1/3rd the time. Some prefer the latter, some dont.
Then in 2016 they took a dump.
Assuming you're in North America, there's really only one line of DVDs in print for the first Dragon Ball TV series: the five blue season bricks. These were released from 2009-2010. That's all there is right now, and they are readily available on sites like RightStuf and Amazon. There is no word on any future re-release of the series, remastered/HD or otherwise.
If you are exclusively watching the franchise in English and are for some reason or another incapable of being convinced otherwise, please watch the Kai version of the Dragon Ball Z portion for something resembling an accurate script and atmosphere.
Real talk: entire franchise, Japanese with English subtitles, beginning to end, no items, Final Destination.
I bought the Looney Tunes Golden collection on Amazon and it is one of the single greatest purchases any human has ever made
Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 1-6 (6-Pack) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005NFJAQC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_qTd8563QJLAW3
Also you could find a lot if them on Kodi and probably some on seriesonline. io
Just taking a look for a second, I found this box of war on ebay for $125, which is about what i paid for mine. Seller has 100% positive feedback and includes photos.
I’m guessing you might’ve seen this one if you’ve already checked amazon, but again its sold by a highly rated third party so it’s probably legit. And it seems they use amazon’s return policy so that shouldn’t be an issue either. As far as the price goes, I can’t say if it’s cheap or not but it seems reasonable to me.
That's actually not terrible for the Box of War set considering that it's a limited edition box that has been out of print for ages. I would definitely make sure of the condition it's in before considering buying it though. Some of the ones I've seen listed for "cheap" in the past were in pretty rough condition since it's such an old set. But all of that aside, the one drawback of that set is that it's an older release. There was a remastered release that came out later on, and you can buy it on Amazon for $68 brand new.
That's pretty much the only practical way to own the 1997 series in North America at the moment. There was a Bluray re-release in Japan and the UK, but the Japanese release doesn't have English audio (the dub is actually really good), and the UK release went out of print and is region locked to boot. The UK publisher is doing a steel case version soon, so if you have some means of bypassing region lock and want to own the series on Bluray, then that's your best bet.
You can totally buy the DVDs still
It's fairly cheap too.
It's real. They released it after initially releasing the first four season in box sets.
I found this on Amazon
Support the official release
I don't know what region you live in, but if you're looking for a North American or NTSC/Region-1 release, then the remastered "blue brick" DVD sets are the overall best option currently available. The original DB series hasn't been made available on Blu-ray anywhere yet that I'm aware of.
There are official Digimon releases. You can get Adventure through Frontier on amazon for 137 dollars. https://www.amazon.com/Digimon-Official-Seasons-1-4-Collection/dp/B00DYEBLYI/ref=pd_sbs_74_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00DYEBLYI&pd_rd_r=b0b82cc7-e160-11e8-8ce8-dddaaf4ffb48&pd_rd_w=dQW6y&pd_rd_wg=XX0jC&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&am...
I bought the first season off of amazon. Other seasons might be a couple bucks higher though.
I’m happy your enjoying it as well!
Dragon Ball: Season 1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002FOQXTQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_oR2mCbCZ9NZ8K
Looks like the region 1 version only has seasons 1-4. Link
Happy birthday! I hope you feel better! I have Daria on my wishlist because binge watching shows is my biggest hobby! Not the most exciting hobby, but I still love it.
it was actually on sale black friday many years ago and i snagged it. still shrink wrapped.
It's called the Golden Collection. They originally released it in six volumes, then as a combined set. Each volume is primarily shorts with one character. It's pretty cool, and has a lot of the most famous shorts, though it's not exhaustive. I really wish they'd have done a super huge complete set of all 1000+ shorts, but I guess that's not happening.
It's this listing on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Looney-Tunes-Golden-Collection-6-Pack/dp/B005NFJAQC
There's also a smaller Bluray collection, called the Platinum collection, which has about half as many shorts total. I don't have that one though, so not too familiar with it.
good job there is that then.
> for the true completionist.
I guess Data Squad, Fusionm and Tri don't exist?
and don't go "they suck ass and I wish they didn't exist", because you said
> true completionist.
The Looney Tunes Golden Collection is probably the most common collection you'll find. It's 375 episodes across 6 volumes, which is something like a third of all the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies ever made.
If you were watching in the '80s and '90s, I'm guessing you're watching on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. IIRC, they were showing a variety of material from about a 30 year window (late '30s to late '60s). The Golden Collection has a lot of material that you'll probably recognize.
I'm not sure what you mean by proper release and I don't mean that in a negative way but as far as I know https://www.amazon.com/Godzilla-Complete-Animated-Ian-Ziering/dp/B00I099JZK the 98' series was fully released on DVD just in case you didn't know. I understand the ORIGONAL series wasn't ever fully released besides this first season though, and that does suck. Just so I understand does proper release mean Blu-ray for the 98' series?
Whether you get cut or uncut, the first 67 episodes were abridged to make 53 episodes. There's a broadcast version of those 53 episodes, and an uncensored version. You can read more about this in our FAQ. You really don't have to buy it in VHS; the Rock the Dragon set has what you want. It's just out of print and hard to find....but easier than finding that whole span of episodes in singles.
RIP my VHS collection which died in Hurricane Katrina. :(
What am I missing here?
I caved and bought the complete series - They're region 1, but as long as you've got a multiregion player that's no issue, and I've loved re-watching every minute.
I couldn't help but think though: Wouldn't it suck to own THAT computer? You'd never win/complete anything.
reboot was amazing show really hope they get the reboot of it finished soon. as for how it ended i would say rewatch it
You can stream them on Funimation's website or purchase the box sets at any number of places like Amazon.
The Orange Brick DVD collections should contain the original broadcast (Faulconer) soundtrack. The Blu-rays should also have it.
Here's a link to our FAQ if you need more info.
To make a long story short, you just watched the Ocean dub of Dragon Ball Z. The first 67 episodes were done by Ocean. Funimation would later re-dub these episodes and they would be available on the uncut release of the show. You may have also heard that the score was a bit different, too.
During Dragon Ball Z's English broadcast run, FUNimation replaced Shunsuke Kikuchi's original Japanese score with Shuki Levi's edgier, electronic/guitar-driven soundtrack, inspired by his work on Power Rangers. When FUNimation switched to their in-house dub for episodes 068+, they hired Bruce Faulconer to replace Shuki Levi for the remainder of the series. In 2004, FUNimation went back to redub the Ocean Group's episodes, hiring Nathan Johnson to replace Levi. This redub, featuring Johnson (001-067) and Faulconer (068-291) is featured on all uncut DVD and Blu-ray sets, while the edited-for-TV Ocean dub can be found on the "Rock The Dragon" set.
Just get the orange sets OP. check the stats and the reviews
It's the original Funi English dub (ally to good, nightmare to you speech etc) you can choose either the Japanese music or the Falcouner/American score if you prefer. I've got this version and I've really enjoyed it, ok the intro theme is different but it's just as I remember otherwise.
or go to FUNimation's site get a subscribtion and it should all be there. Idk if you could watch it for free through.
Seems to effect this box set
Plus you can stream them all right from the Shout Factory website, which are sources from these DVD's and they don't sound right either.
If he's gonna spend that much, he should get the newer release that has the remastered episodes. The image quality is much cleaner. It's also on Amazon, but it's a bit more expensive.
Last I saw, there were copies of the remastered version floating around for a bit cheaper on Ebay, and were in great condition to boot. I actually own that same older box set you linked. My brothers bought it for me as a Christmas present about 11 years ago.
>I knew about the history of the dedubbing of the first two, so I'll just have to deal.
Well, you don't have to. You can pick up the entirety of the old Ocean Group dub via the Rock the Dragon set, which features Shuki Levi's replacement score. Of course, this is an edited-for-TV release and only includes the English dub.
We have a buyer's guide in our FAQ in the sidebar:
>* The Dragon Ball Z "Rock The Dragon" set [4:3 Native], which contains all 53 episodes of the original Ocean Group dub.
The Westwood dub, which continued from the Aritificial Human arc to the end of Dragon Ball Z was never released on DVD.
Buy the Blue bricks for Dragon ball http://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Ball-Season-1/dp/B002FOQXTQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422081461&sr=8-1&keywords=dragon+ball
For DBZ buy the Blu-rays if your a casual dbz watcher , buy The Dragon Boxes if your a purist , Take note though that the dragon boxes are out of print and very expensive.
Because of what /u/VegettoEx said, I'm not sure which dub you're referring to. But, both the "Ocean" dub and in-house FUNimation dub have a home release.
Right now on Amazon, each season of Dragon Ball Z is $15 and each season of Dragon Ball ranges from $10-$15. I got every season of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z for a little less than $200.
You can buy them here
You can also watch reruns every night at 8:30pm on Teletoon Retro.
If you kids have never seen or heard of the show "Daria", I highly recommend picking up the DVDs.
Yes. Teenage life sucks, and it gets so much better later on.
