1995 was a pretty big year for the franchise. What in particular makes you interested in knowing about it?

The Dragon Ball manga wrapped up its serialization in Japan that May in the 1995 No. 25 issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump with chapter 519.

The Dragon Ball Z television series was still plugging away in Japan, with only the last four episodes sneaking into January 1996 (GT would begin the following month in February 1996).

We got two movies that year, with DBZ Movie 12 screening in March, and with DBZ Movie 13 coming shortly thereafter in July.

The music releases were also still going strong, with the middling DBZ Hit Song Collection 17 ("Hippy Hoppy Shake!!") releasing that March. That particular series would come to an end the following year.

It was a pretty massive year for video games, with both Dragon Ball Z: Super Legend of Goku -Assault Chapter- and Dragon Ball Z: Super Legend of Goku -Awakening Chapter- hitting the Super Famicom (March and September, respectively), Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 hitting the PlayStation in July, and Dragon Ball Z: Shin Butōden hitting the Sega Saturn that November. The second of two Game Boy games, Dragon Ball Z: Goku's Fierce Fighting Legend, also hit that August.

Obviously there continued to be a slew of other merchandise, such as figures, cards, etc.

Over here in America, that fall is when FUNimation's English dub of the Dragon Ball series hit, along with its own limited merchandise (perhaps most notably Sword Swinging Yamcha, Fast Kicking Krillin, and Staff Slashing Goku).

Thank you so very much, VegettoEX. And as for your question, I am interested in learning about if the year of 1995 had anything more that I did not know about.

Didn't know those games came out so late. (and so close to each other)
Knowing this, it's kinda of a shame how the second one only went up to the Frieza battle.
