Remastered Season Box Sets


In February 2007, FUNimation’s “remastered” Season One box set saw its release on DVD. Touted as a complete remastering, this release was produced in a (cropped) widescreen presentation with a “remastering” process by Video Post & Transfer in Dallas, Texas. Despite FUNimation’s claims, the set is indeed cropped (missing approximately 20% of its vertical resolution while only gaining approximately 5% of its horizontal resolution), it is not remastered frame-by-frame from its original film, and the color has been adjusted. Of note is the inclusion of a new audio track, featuring FUNimation’s traditional voice track (with minor line alterations where appropriate) played alongside the original Japanese musical score. This release also marked the last inclusion of FUNimation’s replacement musical score for their English dub (previously heard on North American broadcast television), with subsequent home releases and online streaming reverting back to its proper, original Japanese musical score. FUNimation continued with this “season box set” release style for the entirety of the Dragon Ball Z TV series, marking the first time it had ever received a “consistent” release from beginning to end in North America.
