Funimation Remastered Box Sets

From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki

This article (Funimation Remastered Box Sets), or a section of this article, is very messy. Please edit this article so that it looks more polished.

The Funimation Remastered Box Sets are Dragon Ball Z sets released by FUNimation. They feature digitally remastered anamorphic widescreen (16:9) HD transfer from original Japanese film print, revised English audio track, original English and Japanese audio tracks, plus other special features. Similar sets have also been released for Dragon Ball. and Dragon Ball GT. While the Z sets are cropped to achieve an anamorphic widescreen presentation, the original Dragon Ball and GT sets are not, and are presented in the original 4:3. The sets DO NOT include "next episode" previews, although the narrator still erroneously provides the "stay tuned for scenes from the next episode" message.

The studio Video Post & Transfer was responsible for the restoration process, during which they used the original 16mm negative, stored properly in FUNimation's film vault.

Lead by colorist Steve Franko, all 291 episodes of Dragon Ball Z were given a series of clean-ups. First was color correction (which Franko stated was little to none). Next was the restoration process. First it went into the Phillip Sprit Datacine, which eliminated much of the video noise and grain that was in the system. Next was the Taranex, which was the final process of the clean-up. (Note: In a interview, Franko stated it took up to, or above, 2 million dollars to do the restoration). The entire process was done at 24fps, the original frame-rate of the masters.

The restored footage was then lad to tape-to-tape at 1080p, the highest quality HD film available today.

The series was also telecined at a screen format of 16:9, re-conforming it from its original 4:3 format. This helps eliminate some of the grain and glue on the top and bottom of the picture, and adds more to the left and right than any other standard definition transfer (Note: The decision to crop the picture was not the idea of Franko, but that of FUNimation).

In much of the controversy surrounding the restoration, Franko has said that due to a small budget (and time schedule), he and his team were not able to do a complete and thorough job of the film print.[1]

The box set has created much controversy amongst fans and purists.

  • Many fans and critics have attacked FUNimation's decision to crop the series from 4:3 to 16:9. This results in minor picture loss on the top and bottom, a few times resulting in awkward framing. It should also be noted that image is gained in the left and right from the standard definition.
  • Due to the DVNR automatic process used to clean the prints, while it does greatly clear large amounts of dirt and grain, it accidentally blurs minor detail. Another effect is that, when the picture shakes, lines of detail are lost. While usually very minor and insignificant, there are those who do not like that detail is lost to the overall picture.
  • Some have attacked FUNimation's claim that they remastered the film prints frame-by-frame due to some amounts of grain, scratches, and jiggling frames (all normal for an old anime show) still left. It should be noted that there are other ways to justify frame-by-frame remastering, such as DVNR process, color correction, and 1080i HD transfer.
  • Others have claimed that FUNimation altered the colors of the show despite claims that they kept the colors true to their Japanese prints. A prime example is during the Son Goku/Vegeta fight. In the Japanese Dragon Box version, the sky is green. In the box set version, the sky is blue. It should be noted that in the Pioneer DVDs the sky is also blue, thus claiming that was the color of FUNimation's Japanese film prints. Here is an example.
  • People have complained that the Japanese BGM sounds too low in the 5.1 Surround mix.
  • Some note the loss of the Spanish audio track, and the 5.1 surround TV broadcast English track from the Ultimate Uncut Special Edition. It should be noted that the reason behind this might be due to the large amount of content already on the DVDs, that there might a smaller bit-rate, meaning a loss of quality.
  • Some have criticized that on the 5.1 surround, an insert song is missing. A clear reason for this is copyright laws (other dubs miss the song as well). Along with that, a chorus line in the score is missing at one point. A reason for this could be the track FUNimation used for the sound mix, the chorus note may be lost. Another track problem is the song 'Cha-La Head-Cha-La' is replaced by FUNimation's opening song for the movies. It is confusing as to why, mostly due to the fact Ending Song ('Zenkai Power') is left perfectly intact.
  • It has also been said that FUNimation lied in Dragon Ball Z: Rebirth. At one point, there is a comparison between the original film print and the remastered print. Some have noted that the original film print side is still the remastered frame, just sped up to reveal grain. A reason for this may be that FUNimation just created that side to show the audience how the prints did somewhat look alike. Going by the original frame on top, the picture is most likely that of how it was portrayed.


The release has become one of the most controversial anime DVDs released. Many purist fans say the season releases are an insult to fandom. Many fans says the picture is inferior to the Dragon Box sets released by Toei in Japan (Note: It should be noted that comparisons between the two sets are unfair, considering the two used different generation masters for their restorations). Others, however, give positive reviews to the set, calling it one of FUNimation's better Dragon Ball Z sets (many fans usually attacked FUNimation's previous Dragon Ball Z releases for being overpriced, poorly encoded, and using picture from low quality sources).

One of the biggest events against the set was when Animeondvd, a well-known anime DVD review site, said they wouldn't even review it (or any other Season Set releases for that matter).

Despite the massive controversy, the set has become one of the best-selling anime DVDs all of time. On, it continues to remain on the Top 10 best selling anime DVDs, even three months after its release. In a report, ICv2 reported that Dragon Ball Z continues to remain the number one anime property, beating out other well known anime Pokemon and Naruto.

FUNimation later released a statement saying that the set is the highest selling anime DVD of 2007.

Captain Ginyu Saga redub

For the new release of the Captain Ginyu Saga, FUNimation redubbed several voices. There were also rewrites to the script done by Christopher Forbis, with much of writer Christopher Nell's original work left perfectly.


  • Brice Armstrong, who performs Ginyu in the Namek Saga, replaces Dale Kelly as Captain Ginyu (Kelly voiced him originally). Note: Kelly's original voice is still used for Ginyu's battle grunts and power-up screams.
  • Christopher Sabat redubs his work as Vegeta. Originally, Sabat voices Vegeta similar to previous English voice actor, Brian Drummond. Later in time, Sabat voiced the character much differently.
  • Sonny Strait redubs his work as Krillin. His voice also varied significantly throughout the series. Strait redubs to present continuity in the series.
  • Stephanie Nadolny redubs her work as Gohan. Unlike the others, only a portion of her work has been redone.
  • Linda Chambers-Young redubs her work as Frieza. Her voice original sounded more calm and woman-like. Here, her voice is more rough and threatening. It helps present continuity to the Namek Saga voice.
  • Laura Bailey replaces Ceyli Delgadillo as Dende.
  • Christopher Sabat replaces Mark Britten as Burter.
  • Kyle Hebert replaces Dale Kelly as the narrator. Dale Kelly voices the narrator originally, but later on, Kyle Hebert took over the role.
  • The scene where Bulma escapes from the cave to steal the Dragon Balls was redubbed for unknown reasons. Small changes were made to the script.
  • In the orignal US broadcast English track, the Vegeta Saga and the Namek Saga (Seasons 1 and 2; Episodes 1-67 uncut) feature the Ultimate Uncut Special Edition music. The Captain Ginyu Saga (the second saga in Season 2) features the original Bruce Faulconer music at the starting point. The Captain Ginyu Saga all the way to the Kid Buu Saga (Seasons 2-9; Episodes 68-291) features the original Bruce Faulconer music in the series.
  • Several additional characters were also given a redub by various voice actors.
  • Despite many alterations, the original dub voices for Goku, Nail, King Kai, Guru, and Jeice are left perfectly intact. Bulma's original voice is also left mostly intact. Only one of her scenes was redubbed.
  • Little has been changed in terms of script. There were some alterations, sometimes getting rid of old, less-mature dialog.


Frieza (Original): Any last wishes before you go the way of the dodo? Frieza (Redub): Any last wishes before I kill you?

Vegeta (Original): This is going to be easier than coloring inside the lines. Vegeta (Redub): This is going to be easier than I thought.


Unlike the Season 1 set, Season 2 has received little controversy (most of the fans complaints are identical to the previous set). Some fans did complain about the lack of redubbing for Goku in the Captain Ginyu Saga though.

Like the previous set, it has also sold very well. On, it is on the top ten highest selling anime DVDs.

Frieza Saga Redub

Like the Captain Ginyu Saga, the Frieza Saga received a redub from several voice actors. Chris Forbis continued to revise portions of the script.

  • Christopher Sabat continues to redub his lines as Vegeta for the entire season.
  • Linda Young continues to redub her work as Frieza leading up to the first episode of his final transformation.
  • Stephanie Nadolny continues to redub her work as Gohan up to the beginning of Episode 78.
  • Sonny Strait continues to redub his work as Krillin up to the beginning of Episode 94.
  • Brice Armstrong continues to replace Dale Kelly as Captain Ginyu in remaining appearances.
  • Laura Bailey continues to replace Ceyli Delgadillo as Dende.
  • Kyle Hebert continues to replace Dale Kelly as the narrator.
  • John Burgmeier replaces Chris Cason as Tien.
  • Bill Townsley replaces Dylan Thompson as Guldo.
  • Brad Jackson replaces Mark Britten as Oolong.
  • Kyle Hebert replaces Mark Britten as Ox King.
  • Christopher Sabat replaces Chris Cason as Mr. Popo
  • Christopher Sabat continues to replace Mark Britten as Burter.
  • Christopher Sabat redubs some portions of his work as Piccolo.

Despite these differences, the original dub voices of Goku, Bulma, Chi-Chi, Yamcha, Chiaotzu, Master Roshi, Yajirobe, Dr. Brief, Mrs. Brief, Puar, Jeice, Recoome, Nail, Guru, and King Kai are left completely intact.

Season 3 has received a much better reception from fans, mainly due to how FUNimation kept the colors the same, although they were brightened. Also, unlike the Captain Ginyu Saga of Season 2, the lack of redubbing for Goku in the Frieza Saga was not poorly received, as by this time in the original dub Sean Schemmel's voice for Goku had developed more.

Season Four

  • Release date: Febraury 19, 2008

This boxset contains the Garlic Junior, Trunks and Androids sagas. Unlike other season box sets, this set does not feature an extensive redubbing. Some minor changes do exist, however, such as the removal of the voice effect given to Android 19. Vegeta's short appearances in the Garlic Jr. Saga have also been redubbed. In addition, characters such as Spice, Mustard and Maron have been redubbed with new voice actors. For some odd reason Oolong doesn't receive a redub in the Garlic Jr. Saga, and Mark Britten's old voice is therefore kept.

Cover character: Future Trunks (Sword)

However the most notable difference from the first release is that Laura Bailey has replaced Ceyli Delgadillo as Dende. However, it's not necessarily a redub, as Funimation had lost contact with Delgadillo when first dubbing the Cell Games saga, and Laura Bailey was cast as a voice match to replace her (this was Bailey's first voice acting part), but Delgadillo soon after returned to the studio and redubbed all of Bailey's work, and it is her voice that was heard in the original broadcast and DVD release. However Delgadillo left Funimation again, and Laura Bailey once again replaced her as Dende in all future media. The voice of Dende heard in the remastered set is Bailey's voice that was recorded before Delgadillo returned to redub her work. It should be noted that the error of Tao being called "General" instead of "Mercenary" has not been fixed.

Dragon Ball GT: Season 1 Dragon Ball GT: Season 2 Dragon Ball GT: The Complete Series

Season One

  • Release date: December 9, 2008

This set contains the Black Star Dragon Ball Saga and the Baby Saga. It should also be noted that Season One does not include the entire Baby Saga as the set ends at Episode 34, whereas the Baby Saga concludes at Episode 40. The most notable dub difference from the first release is that the opening and ending credit sequences and theme songs have been redone to match the original Japanese dub. This means the "Grand Tour Rap" opening theme music no longer appears, although an excerpt of it can still be heard during the dub eyecatchs.
