FUNimation’s “Frequently Asked Questions” section for their potential forthcoming 30th anniversary Dragon Ball Z Blu-ray set has increased the previously-listed 2,500 necessary fan reservations to 3,000:
WHY 3,000 UNITS?
This is the minimum build order for sets from our printers. This minimum makes sure that we can sell the product to you at an affordable price.
But wait…didn’t you say 2,500?
Sorry! We let Goku do the math and, well…mistakes were made.
The website continues to offer no additional, concrete details on this potential set (release timeframe, aspect ratio, packaging information, or bonus inclusions beyond the nebulous “new bonus content” and “full-sized hardback artbook” and “exclusive collectible figure”). Email addresses are being collected, though no pre-order information is actually available.
An upcoming 30th anniversary set was initially revealed in the February 2019 issue of the License Global trade magazine, where senior manager of licensing and marketing at Toei Animation, Lisa Yamatoya, noted a forthcoming announcement in conjunction with FUNimation.
FUNimation’s last version of the Dragon Ball Z television series on Blu-ray saw its release across nine volumes in 2013-2014 in a cropped widescreen aspect ratio with heavy digital video noise reduction and color adjustments. This followed a cancelled 2011 release with an intent to remain faithful to the original presentation (including its original 4:3 aspect ratio). Meanwhile, the Dragon Ball Z Kai series — a 20th anniversary “refresh” using the existing Dragon Ball Z video footage — was also seeing a television broadcast and home video release on DVD and Blu-ray.
