Dragon Ball Z Season Seven Box Set

The Dragon Ball Z Season Seven box set includes six DVDs that contain 25 episodes. The first two discs contain six episodes, the third disc contains four episodes, the fourth and fifth discs contain three episodes, and the sixth disc contains three episodes and the DVD extras. The episodes on this set include the tournament in the Other World, Gohan attending high school, and the start of the tournament with Mr. Satan.

On the main menu of the first five discs, you can choose to watch all the episodes, watch the disc with the marathon feature, choose which episode you want to watch, and set up your language and subtitle options. One of the best features of the Dragon Ball Z sets is the marathon feature; this allows you to watch all of the episodes back-to-back. However, with the marathon feature, you only see the opening credits once, and the ending credits are not shown. This feature is very helpful when youíre trying to watch all of the episodes on a disc in a single sitting.

In the setup menu, you can choose between the English audio from when the series originally aired on television, the English dialogue with the original Japanese music, and Japanese dialogue and music. In this menu, you can also choose to turn the subtitles on and off.

The menu on the sixth DVD adds in a link for the special features. While this set still includes textless opening and closing songs, this feature now has the new opening and closing that were introduced during the episodes that appear in this set. And on these textless songs, the credit text is gone, but there are still subtitles that appear on the screen. Also in the extras menu is a link for trailers. The trailers included on this set are for: Tsubasa, Hana, Case Closed, Dragon Ball GT, Love and Honor, xxxHOLIC, Black Cat, and Dragon Ball Z.

Like the previous box sets, I have issues with the audio mastering levels. FUNimationís splash screen at the beginning of the discs, the trailer at the start of the disc, and the menu are mastered at a high audio level. However, the actual episodes themselves were mastered at a very soft audio level.

While I was disappointed with the audio levels and the lack of special features, this set is still a "must get" for any Dragon Ball Z fan that wants all the episodes on DVD.

In order to write this review, I checked out a copy of this DVD box set through the King County Library System.
