Brice Armstrong continues to replace Dale Kelly as Captain Ginyu in remaining scenes, including the lines involving the "frog" subplot with Bulma, as well as Frog sound effects. Like Season 3 (and for all upcoming Seasons for the Remastered "Orange Bricks" DVD Sets) there are sound effects removed, such as Trunks landing in Episode 119 having a "BANG" sound effect when he lands in the Original Dub mix, as well as that same sound effect playing a few times after that to match the Faulconer Productions music track "Trunks Appears".

While the original Dragon Ball anime followed Goku through childhood into adulthood, Dragon Ball Z is a continuation of his adulthood life, but at the same time parallels the maturation of his son, Gohan, as well as other characters from Dragon Ball and more. Also, a spectator wearing a pink hat watching the Cell Games is given two extra lines by Mike McFarland in "No More Rules" despite sounding distinctly different in the role from the original dub. For one, I dislike the lack of NEPs and original title cards, which is what I was alluding to that every other Funimation Blu-ray release has suffered from. The set not only houses (relatively) new transfers of the series, it also houses them on a collectable art This set is also notorious for its seemingly rushed approach toward English titles, credits, and music.

The specials contain redubbing on the parts of the narrator, Nappa, and Ox-King, and one of Korin's lines was redubbed in the fifth movie. In "Bow to The Prince", Future Trunks' screaming during his trials in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber are a different take than previously used as is his screaming " NO! It is a gorgeous collectible set, and I am happy that this beloved show from my childhood still garners enough interest from fans worldwide even to this day to receive a new release. I was hoping something along those lines would happen for the 30th anniversary edition, because the remastered dub (which far less fans grew up with) has been given far too much special treatment, especially for the Frankenstein project it was.

Some of the civilians in " The Androids Appear" are given redubs such as the blonde mustached man who Android 19 kills, going from Mike Wiebe in the former to Eric Vale in the latter, and the two office workers that Yamcha questions with Wiebe and Vale's original performances being redone by Anthony Bowling and David Trosko respectively. It would have been really nice to see some new sleeves and discs to differentiate this set from the last one, perhaps with the same orange colour as the outer case. For the English dub, theme songs were in English for Movies 1 and 3 but were left in Japanese for Movies 2 and 4. I watched the orange bricks before and it was quite obvious in the earlier episodes but it was alright later on. Speaking of which, there are also subtle things like the black crush which I think more than anything is a result of the colors overall being too dark, an issue that encompasses the entirety of the video.

I'm not expecting these before 2021 or later though as AB Video said they would not release these if they are not sure they are perfect. Two Namekians in Moori's village receive redubs from Eric Vale replacing Chris Forbis and Christopher Sabat from the original.

There's also the Dragon Box DVDs, which were certainly stunning when they came out around 2002, but they're in SD and IMO, aren't aging great with modern HD/4K TVs.

The Japanese audio track on this set is tinny and thin, probably because it's a very old recording made using old technology.
