Z Fighters vs. Babidi and Majin Buu

The Dragon Ball Z Season Eight box set includes six DVDs that contain thirty-four episodes. The first four discs contain six episodes, the fifth disc contains five episodes, and the sixth discs contain five episodes and the DVD extras. The episodes in this set focus on the resurrection of Majin Buu, a very powerful monster that can destroy the world if it isn't stopped.

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 you're trying to watch all of the episodes on a disc in a single sitting.

For special features, this set still includes textless opening and closing songs, which are the same ones that appeared on the Dragon Ball Z Season Seven DVD box set. 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: Yu Yu Hakusho, One Piece, Project Blue Earth SOS, Kiddy Grade, Utawarerumono, Blue Gender, Case Closed, and Dragon Ball Z.

Like the previous box sets, I have issues with the audio mastering levels. FUNimation's 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. I was disappointed with the audio levels and the lack of special features.

If you don't mind the picture and audio quality on your DVDs, then this box set would be worth getting. However, if you're looking for better quality, you can either get the corresponding Dragon Box, or wait until FUNimation gets to this point in their upcoming Blu-ray remasters.

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