Official Dragon Ball Kametsu Threads Index (Updated Jan 9, 2015)

Recommended Posts

Dragon Ball is the source of all living things. It surrounds us, it penetrates us, and it binds the galaxy togeth- Wait a second, I'm thinking of The Force. But while I will gladly argue that Dragon Ball and Star Wars intersect in many ways, this is about Dragon Ball.

For the past year, I've been collecting every single piece of officially licensed home video with the words "Dragon Ball" on it. Sadly, there are just some things that money can't buy - namely R2J Dragon Boxes, I mean those things are fucking expensive. That's why we here at Kametsu want to share as much of it all with as many of you all as possible. Listed below, you will find every Dragon Ball thread across all three Anime Download sections that is worth checking out. If you're looking for the Orange Bricks, then go fuck yourself.

 

Dragon Ball

 

Dragon Ball: Dragon Box [R2J DVD] [Dual-Audio] [Ecio]

  • The flagship project for Dragon Ball on Kametsu. Dragon Box picture with Funimation audio tracks. Currently on hold until Ecio returns.

Dragon Ball RF (RF=Reduced Filler, Fan Edit) [R2J DVD] [Dual-Audio] [WhoIsTheMilkMan]

  • An ambitious fanedit project inspired by Dragon Ball Z Kai. A new but certainly welcome addition to the Dragon Ball community on Kametsu.

Dragon Ball Movies 1-4 [DR] [Dual] [DBNL]

  • DBNL's now less-than-standard release of the four Dragon Ball movies includes an inferior encode of the Ocean dub of Movie 1. A Capsule Corps time machine to the past when Vorbis was king.

Dragon Ball - Movie 1 [DVD] [Dual-Audio] [Kametsu]

  • ​One of Forummaster Koby's contributions, a DVDRIp of Funimation's 2010 release of Curse of the Blood Rubies with new cast. This being Koby, you'll have to learn how to use XDCC if you want it.

Dragon Ball (Harmony Gold) [Ecio]

  • Quite the rare commodity among hardcore Dragon Ball fans, this is the long-lost Harmony Gold dub of Dragon Ball movies 1 and 3. Synced to the Dragon Box, these videos have Japanese audio spliced in where undubbed. Now if anybody can find those first five episodes that they dubbed, I'll finally be able to sleep soundly again.

Dragon Ball: BLT Production (Ocean Dub) [uploaded by Ecio]

  • What's a Blue Brick? This 1995 dub from Ocean prevented us from seeing Goku slapping Bulma's crotch until 2009.

Dragon Ball Blue Water Remastered [manifestx]

  • An exhaustive, ongoing compilation of TVRip audio for the Blue Water dub of Dragon Ball.

 

 

Dragon Ball Z

 

Dragon Ball Z: Dragon Box Z (R2J) [DVD] [Hex/Quint/Quad-Audio] [Ecio]

  • The flagship project for Dragon Ball Z on Kametsu. Dragon Box Z picture with multiple selections of Funimation audio tracks. Currently on hold until various items fall into place.
  • A BDRip of the fan-favorite Level Sets from Funimation that were unfairly cancelled. What? No... I'M NOT CRYING. NOT.
  • The successor to their previously widely-distributed Orange Brick DVDRip, this is an archive of DHD's (formerly DBNL) BDRip of the current Funimation Blu-ray Season Sets, which feature "selective" cropping. Pfft, whatever that means. At least they stopped using Vorbis.
  • Bloated beyond reason, this BDRip of both the Theatrical and Extended versions of the 2013 movie Battle of Gods was made by yours truly. Extras coming soon. (They're all on Youtube at this point.) [update Dec 2014: Video no longer bloated. Extras available. Apparently they weren't all on Youtube... ]
  • Migrated from Cartoon-World, this classic thread chronicles the concentrated efforts to preserve the highly nostalgic Ocean dub of Dragon Ball Z in its various forms. A subbie's worst nightmare.

Dragon Ball Z Big Green/AB Group Movies [KariyaSama]

  • One of the more curious parts of Dragon Ball Z's history, the AB Groupe "Big Green" Dub made for Toonami UK features horrendous voice acting and laughable translations. Perfect for watching with friends.

Dragon Ball Z: Speedy Video Malaysian English Dub [Arian]

  • While not quite the Holy Grail of DBZ, these hard-to-find VCDs holding Speedy Video's English-language dub are wanted enough by fans that they are willing to donate any copies found online to the threadmaster. Seriously, how did anybody know about these?

 

Dragon Ball GT

 

  • The flagship project for Dragon Ball GT on Kametsu. Dragon Box GT picture with Funimation (and Blue Water?) audio tracks. Check the thread for more details on extra tracks. Series is complete, but A Hero's Legacy remains to be encoded by Ecio.
  • Most likely discontinued since Xegoog has gone on to bigger and better things. Nevertheless, this thread houses his efforts to collect the Blue Water dub for GT.
  • Another one of Koby's contributions, this dub-only recap episode of the Black Star Dragon Ball saga was the very first installment of GT aired on Toonami, as Funimation thought that the first saga wasn't "action-y" enough. The first saga was aired two years later, proving once again that Funimation should just let us tell them what we want.
 
Dragon Ball Z Kai
 
Dragon Ball Z Kai (Parts 1-8) [720p 4:3 & 16:9] [GameStar/DemiVegeta, Uploaded by Ecio]
  • Another migrated thread from Cartoon-World. (Man, that place must have been something!) Ecio presents to us the 20th Anniversary 2009 reversioning of Dragon Ball Z. Noteworthy here is the inclusion of DemiVegeta's rescoring of Parts 5-8 of Kai to include options for the Yamamoto score for English and Japanese audio tracks until episode 95, when they canned his ass.
Dragon Ball Kai (2014) [HDTV 720p] [Maintained by KariyaSama]
  • Currently the official way for a Kametsu member to watch this year's adaptation of the Buu arc in Dragon Ball Kai. Started by Ecio, this project is maintained weekly by dedicated member KariyaSama.

 

WANTED

  • Various Blue Water episodes
  • Bits and pieces of Westwood Ocean episodes (check the thread)
  • Dale Kelly Recaps for the Ginyu Saga and Cell Games Saga
  • Big Green Dragon Ball movies 1-3, GT Special
  • Speedy Dub Dragon Ball movies 2 and 3, Z movies 11 and 13
  • Harmony Gold episodes (yeah right, like that'll ever happen)

BONUS:

 

Ultimate Dragon Box (R2J / Remastered / Multi-Audio) [Clutchins]

  • The culmination of the efforts of several people on and off the forum, this is the last Dragon Ball project that ever needs to be. I aim to make this the best version of Dragon Ball ever. Period.

I gotta say, I'm really amazed by this astonishing thread of yours Clutchins!! :) :) And the commentaries on each one of the releases are out of these world!! :D :D


Also, since I'm aware for most of the updates regarding the projects, there is one thing that I'm completely clueless at this point. Do we have any updates on Arian's DBZ Kai release on 720p and 1080p??

As far as I know, he hasn't decided which video to use. It's a tossup between the Funimation Blu-ray footage (which has English title cards and such), the Japanese Blu-rays, and the French Blu-rays (which he has on his computer I think). He's going to include all possible tracks, including the DemiVegeta remixed scores found on Ecio's thread. If I can buy the Blu-rays for Kai soon, I'll provide AC3 DD audio for the Kikuchi track that he needs, but I think he can find everything by himself. He'll make a thread for this when he's finished a few things he's doing right now, both on here and IRL.

Thank you for the kind words! It was a lot of fun because I had at least some knowledge of almost everything I wrote about, so it just sort of flowed for me. I was just really bored one night and I decided to stretch my typing fingers out a little bit haha.

Want you to know that we really appreciate all this effort!! :) And really sorry for being a jerk and asking so many questions, it's that I (like everyone) love DB and I want to learn more of their definitive releases!! :)

 

Also, I admire your typing fingers pal!! :) I don't if I would ever have the strength to do all those commentaries out of boredom!! That's really something!! ;)

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think I'll be needing them. Dismantles will be sending me all the material I need in due time.

Such a stupid question. Of course I know who I am. Do you know who you are?

As much as everyone wants to support the official release, they aren't exactly giving the fans what they want are they. Clutchins and co are doing what they are not which is providing us with the best quality of dbz there is.

Yes

 

 

Feeding the 'troll'. Though that troll should read more carefully in the future.

 

On a side note: I watched Battle of the Gods recently. Anyone else not enjoy the animation style? All the characters looked so rubbery and shiny...

 

Also, since when is this Super Saiyan God mode:

Better than this design?

Both DB and Z have 8-bit versions of their openers from "Pop'N Music GB Animation Melody" https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA8DEB6D793B4EB42


If someone could get the rips from the game (for optimal quality) that would be awesome, and we could add them. They're quite good.

      I'm looking for Dragon Ball Z / GT / Kai episodes in 480p. The ones that are uncut & are from the Dragon Box.
      Mr. Kimiko already uploaded DBZ and GT but those links are down
      Also user iBreaker uploaded all DBZ episodes. Those links are still working but they are in 1080p. The thing is, my PC is old and lags while playing 1080p.
      So i was wondering if any one of you guys could upload them in 480p. Thanks a lot.

      Hello, anyone have the Dragon Ball Z Kai Nicktoons TV-Rip from C-W Version?
    • By Metrunui
      Look man, I just want a higher quality season 1, the saiyan saga, of DBZ abridged. The episodes are shorter, and I'm pretty sure the dbz level sets should work well. I want the definitive version of dragon ball z to be in a higher definition than 360p.
