Dragon Ball has long been a favorite anime for anyone looking to try some Japanese anime. It’s not hard to see why, as the franchise combines fun storytelling with lovable characters and planet-shattering battles that have become the gold standard for other action anime series. For Black Friday 2023, you can get huge discounts on various Dragon Ball collections and movies.
For fans of Dragon Ball Z, Kai Blu-ray is a great update of the TV series. This cleans up the original animated version, is mostly uncensored, and even goes the extra mile with fresh English dubs that are more faithful to the source material. There aren’t many extras in the Kai series, but when you have dozens of Dragon Ball Z episodes to watch from these series, you’ll still have plenty of content to keep your eyes glued to your TV.
Dragon Ball Blu-ray and DVD
For something more classic, you can check out several movie collections. Don’t worry about the continuity and just enjoy watching Goku, Vegeta and Piccolo on their adventure across the universe. These box sets usually have four movies each, so you can sit through a night of Dragon Ball classics like Cooler’s Revenge, Bojack Unbound, and Wrath of the Dragon. The good thing about these movies is that not only do they compress the Dragon Ball formula to be more friendly at your leisure, but they also have great constant animation to admire. Overall, not a bad combination!
A number of more modern films are also on sale for Black Friday. Don’t miss Resurrection F, which features the return of Frieza and the Dragon Ball Super incarnation of Broly, culminating in a true battle between the legendary Super Saiyan and a mighty Gogeta. For more anime, you can grab some Blu-rays of My Hero Academia, a series inspired by Dragon Ball but putting its own unique spin on the genre.
