Dragon Ball The Movies Individual Discs


In mid-2008, with the Dragon Ball GT individual disc releases at an end, Toei Animation announced that individual discs from the “Dragon Box The Movies” would start being released in the Fall of 2008. This finally gave the fans that missed purchasing the original Dragon Boxes could continue where they left off. As done with the original Dragon Box releases, Toei made the decision to release all of the Dragon Ball Z films before finally releasing the Dragon Ball films at the very end. In addition, for the first time ever, these individual discs would not omit the bonus features that came on the original Dragon Box discs, but would still also come with a special diorama figure set made exclusively for those purchasing these individual discs. In August 2008, the first two individual discs were released, with two new discs released each month there after.

Each individual disc was available in two versions; retail and rental. The retail versions were well produced with renowned Japanese designer Hideaki Shimada designing their packaging, which utilized “Super Jewel Box” DVD cases. The covers, which featured artwork by veteran animator Tadayoshi Yamamuro, could be removed from the retail jewel case and unfolded to reveal brief character biographies and fun movie facts. Each retail DVD also included a point ticket with a 16 digit code that could be redeemed toward the movie’s exclusive diorama figure set. In contrast, the rental versions were cheaply produced, were packaged in standard DVD cases, and lacked many of the retail version perks. The front covers of the retail version were printed with a reflective sparkle finish, while those on the rental version covers were printed in a plain non-reflective ink. Both versions did come with a brief synopsis of its respective movie printed on the back cover, along with the movie’s original promotional poster.

While the original “Dragon Box The Movies” disc menus were somewhat elaborate, the ones included on these discs are simple static menus with no music. The three menu options include “Play Feature”, “Chapter”, and “Special”. “Play Feature” simply plays the movie, while you can select “Chapter” to jump to a specific point in the movie, and “Special” includes a list of the special features. The special features include trailers for the other “Dragon Ball The Movies” discs in addition to the original bonus material included on the Dragon Box.
