So finally we have all 9 seasons of DBZ out in the UK. Although this is the end of Z the next series which is called Dragonball GT is coming out on DVD in the UK in January next year so look forward to that. Also if GT sells well then Manga UK will probably release the original Dragonball too.
Anyway this season includes the Fusion and Kid Buu sagas. Watching these sagas again brings back a lot of happy memories from when they aired on CNX way back in the day.
Basically Fat Buu has become friends with Mr Satan and has become good. But unfortunately certain events lead to him splitting into 2 people, Good Buu and Evil Buu who is skinny and pure evil. After a battle Evil Buu turns Good Buu to chocolate and eats him which then causes him to transform into Super Buu who is way more powerful than his previous forms. We get to see Super Buu battle with Gotenks(who manages to become Super Saiyan 3), then Mystic Gohan(Gohan who has had his hidden powers awakened by Old Kai), then Super Buu absorbs Piccolo and Gotenks and becomes even stronger and eventually absorbs Gohan too which takes his power to an even higher level. Then we get to see Goku and Vegeta fuse to become Vegito and fight Super Buu. Eventually Vegito gets absorbed too(on purpose though) and splits back into Goku and Vegeta who travel through Buu's insides and managed to free not only Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Piccolo but also Fat Buu which then causes Super Buu to become Kid Buu who is insane and destroys the earth without hesitation.
Then we get to see Goku and Vegeta take turns battling Kid Buu until eventually Goku has to use the Spirit Bomb to finally finish Kid Buu off for good. 10 years later there is a Tournament were Goku fights Uub (Kid Buu reborn as a good person) and then decides to train him to help defend the earth from future bad guys.
All in all this is a really epic and action-packed finale that does DBZ justice. The highlights are Goku vs Kid Buu which is a really close and epic fight, Mystic Gohan vs Super Buu which is the coolest beatdown since Gohan vs Cell, Vegeta vs Kid Buu, Vegito vs Super Buu and the final part of the battle with Kid Buu were everyone on earth unites to make the Super Spirit Bomb. But honestly all the fights in this are really entertaining. This Season is right up there with the Frieza saga and the Cell Games saga. And it's great seeing Goku come back to life and become the main hero again.
As always there are 3 sound options:
1. English voices and English music 2. English voices and Japanese music 3. Japanese voices and Japanese music
I would highly recommend watching it with English voices and English music first. The dub music by Bruce Faulconer is really epic and nostalgic. And it fits DBZ better than any other score. It also brings back happy memories of watching DBZ on CNX years ago and being creeped out by Super Buu's creepy theme music. You'll get to hear lots of great music if you set it to English like the Super Saiyan 3 theme, Super Buu's theme, Mystic Gohan's theme, Vegito's theme, Kid Buu's theme, the Super Ghost music and the Buu is fighting music to name a few.
If you are a DBZ fan then you owe it to yourself to get this. Trust me you won't regret it.
