Dragonball Z

on 9/23/2013

I can remember when "THE HISTORY OF TRUNKS" was shown on TV in Japan back in 1993 the buzz on the anime BBS at the time was just message after message of excitement and shock by "DRAGON BALL Z" fans. That excitement was followed by the large attended screenings at anime fan clubs for "THE HISTORY OF TRUNKS", the second special of "DRAGON BALL Z". Seeing the shocked faces of everyone who watched it will always be a lasting memory and this special would become a favorite of mine. Now nearly two decades later, the first two specials have been released together on Blu-ray Disc courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment. VIDEO: If there is one thing that is important to remind everyone is that these two animated specials are twenty years old. It's a general known fact that a lot of older anime films, specials and even TV series have not been preserved well. There is only so much that can be done with the original master source, so let's start with the good and the bad. The good is that this is probably the best we are ever going to see "Dragon Ball Z". It's on Blu-ray, hi-def and the picture quality was great for that time and the colors are nice and sharp with it's 1080p transfer. The video was remastered in High Definition and digitally restored and you get a nice wide screen 16×9 transfer. Colors look good for two anime films that are twenty years old. With that being said, the good news is that the specials fared quite well in its translation to Blu-ray. Because these two were shown on television, you don't get as much scratches or dust. In fact, I saw very little of any scratches or dust which was great considering how old these two specials were. Also, the colors were quite vibrant and was very pleased with the video transfer
