Series #04 – Frieza


The first few “Frieza” discs have the wrong animation for the opening theme, “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” (using the third “Android”-era animation rather than the appropriate second animation).

The second disc in this series, “Transformation“, continues the line of strange episode numbering by FUNimation. English dub episode 65 is actually two episodes (65a, “Gohan Attacks,” and 65b, “Piccolo, the Super Namek”). The two episodes were originally edited together for broadcast on Cartoon Network due to the excessive graphic nature (and length) of a particular scene in which Kuririn is impaled by Freeza with one of his horns. These episodes are presented uncut on the DVD, but the episode numbering of the dub follows the edited version, so it is not immediately obvious. This is why “three” English episodes are listed alongside the four original Japanese episodes.

After an episode is played, the disc defaults back to an episode menu. There is no “Play All” feature to watch all of the episodes in a row without additional remote use. In addition, FUNimation has issued a statement noting that not all “Frieza” discs are guaranteed to work properly with either the PS2 or Xbox home video game consoles. Those that utilize these consoles for DVD playback should beware.

There was never a box set released for the ten individual “Frieza” discs. There had been rumors floating around that FUNimation would be remastering these discs to fix issues (such as episode navigation, eyecatches, theme songs, etc.), but nothing further was ever officially announced. However, many fans report purchasing these discs many years later with corrected features (such as surrounding opening and ending themes); it is assumed FUNimation did another “silent correction release” with many of these discs.
