Not that much. I mostly go back to certain episodes or sagas from time to time. Like now, I'm really tied up in my Dragon Ball watching. I am currently watching DBKTFC as the Blu-rays come out, Watching DBS on Toonami and Crunchyroll as new episodes come out, and I'm currently watching DB, Z, and GT fully in Japanese for the first time. Currently at DB.

I read the whole manga collection every year.
Sometimes I start reading along the year, and sometimes I just read one volume per day during the vacations time.

I also watch it whenever it is on tv. That is actually the only way I was able to watch dbz growing up. The Latin American dub didn't have a home video release when I was a kid(Dbz still doesn't have a complete release). Which sucks. But luckily DB has always been on tv in Latin America. So when I feel like re-watching dbz again for the tenth or eleventh time, I just turned on the tv and watch it on Mexico's Canal 5.

The Mexican release of Dragon Ball only covers up to the 21st Tenkaichi Budokai but the Chilenian release is complete.

Chile only has Dragon Ball. The other releases are from Mexico. Though only GT is complete. DB and Z where cancelled early on. The good news is that Zima Entertainment is currently releasing the movies on dvd and Blu ray. They have released up to the Bojack movie. I'm not sure if these are available out of Mexico. You could import them though. There available on ebay. I'm waiting until they've finish releasing all movies and especials to import them together.

Who khows, maybe Zima Entertainment will release DB and Dbz on Blu ray once they finish with the movies. I hope they do. It really sucks that after all these years we don't have a complete home release of Dbz.

Well to be fair, DBZ is rerun every 5 minutes in Latin America but it sucks that you cant have either a streaming site and or DVD's with DBZ's LatAM dub in them!

I don't watch it from beginning to end regularly. I usually rewatch random episodes or entire sagas. For the Z portion I tend to stick with Kai more nowadays as the pacing makes it a breeze to go through Saiyan, Freeza, Artificial Humans and Buu.

The manga? I can't say I've ever read from start to finish exclusively, much like the anime its more a case of having the desire to experience a certain story arc and going through it whenever I want regardless of internal chronology.

I attempted to rewatch the series around 2011 and stopped at DBZ episode 34, when they cancelled the Levels. I will continue watching it after receiving my 4:3 perfect remaster Blu-rays 8)
Last time I've read the manga was ~2005. I am 100% focused on Dragon Ball projects now and I don't have even a second for the series itself. After finishing all the work, I will definitely reread/rewatch the series.

I'm not the type of guy who supports unofficial products (I have spent thousands on the DB franchise for god's sake!), but I wanted to watch Dragon Ball in Spanish and on eBay they have the entire thing... like the entire thing (including Kai, Battle of Gods, etc.) from the Mexican dub on DVD for like $30. If they had official releases, I'd get them, but they don't. The quality could be better, but it gets the point across. All I wanted out of it was audio. If I could find a Westwood version like that, I'd be more than happy to be honest.

Actually Dragon Ball, DBZ, DBGT, the movies/especials (currently being released on Blu ray in Mexico) and Battle of Gods/Resurrection 'F' do have official releases. Dragon Ball has two DVD releases. One Mexican version that was cancelled after the 21st Tenka'ichi Budokai and one completed Chilean version that uses footage from FUNi's blue bricks. DBZ has one cancelled Mexican DVD home release. Only 52 episodes are available. GT has one complete Mexican DVD release. Which I've heard isn't very good. The movies are currently being released on Blu ray (and for the first time) by Zima entertainment in Mexico. They're a transfer of FUNi's Blu rays. And BoG and Resurrection 'F' where released on Blu ray and DVD respectively back when the movies came out in Latin America.

Basically, with the exception of Dbz and Kai, you can buy the complete official releases of the Latin American dub on home video. But only if you live in Mexico and Chile. You could import them. At least to the U.S. The official Mexican releases (cancelled DB, cancelled Dbz, GT and the movies) are available on eBay. But the complete Chilean release of DB is not. So though they exist, it's not so easy to buy them. Unless you know of someone or somewhere who sells them online.

First of all, I did not want, nor care for the inclusion of Kai and Battle of Gods in that set. It just came with it. I wanted all of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, for GT and the movies, I could take them or leave them. While I realize that I could have probably found something, it still wouldn't be complete. I also don't care for VHS (to me it is an absolutely outdated format and I don't even have a VHS player), so if there are any releases that were only on VHS, that wouldn't serve me either. Basically, I tried looking for different Mexican dub releases, but it was way more problematic than worth it. So, here we are and I got what I got.

Just to clarify the official Mexican and Chilean releases are on DVD not on VHS.

I get you. Like I said, the official Mexican and Chilean releases are hard to get. And for the longest time didn't exist. So before 2010-2012 (not exactly sure when they first were released) we had no official releases of the Latin American dub. I would lie if I said I've never bought those "unofficial fan made" DVDs of the LatAm dub. I have. But nowadays I prefer to own and support the official release. Which for the Latin American dub of Dbz doesn't really exist. Besides the first 52 epispdes. But it is what it is.

EDIT: Dbz was released up till episode 74 and not 52 like I had said.

I reread it on a regular basis but haven't rewatched anything yet. I'm hoping to watch Abridged with my friend who I reference it to sometimes, and I'll definitely rewatch DB and Z when I buy the DVDs.
