### UPDATE (2021.01.08): THIS RELEASE WILL BE REPLACED THIS WEEK, PLEASE HOLD OFF DOWNLOADING UNTIL THE NEW BATCH RELEASE ### **Previous releases:** Saiyan Saga (Level Sets) (1-39): [#1145615](https://nyaa.si/view/1145615) Saiyan Saga (Dragon Box) (1-39): [#1150268](https://nyaa.si/view/1150268) Freeza Saga (75-107): [#1163555](https://nyaa.si/view/1163555) *** **Differences from my previous Namek releases:** 1. All episodes are newly encoded from the R2J Dragon Box instead of the R1 source, and all elements have been re-synced from the ground up. 3. All episodes contain the higher quality JPN Broadcast Audio as released by AnimeMaakuo and divided into episodes by Team Mirolo. A light noise reduction was applied in Audacity to eliminate some of the hiss and the fake stereo was removed and reduced down to the original mono. No other processing was applied. 4. The Saban/Ocean track has been once again re-timed, re-mixed, and cleaned up to provide smoother transitions between track elements. New themes for Eyecatches and NEPs have been created from original soundtrack elements. Episode 67's 3rd English track is still a mix of Ocean, Original FUNi, and "Remastered" FUNi dub elements due to how the episode was originally split up. 5. The Madman release of the Ginyu episodes was used in a few places to replace some weird audio mixing errors found on the FUNi singles. Some NEPs and recaps were pulled from higher quality sources (still VHS) than originally found. 6. The Bardock special is not included here and will be bundled with the Trunks special either during or after season 4's release. *** *These episodes are compiled from the following sources. I am the original encoder for all elements:* **Video:** 1. 4x3 480p R2J Dragon Box - *from raw ISOs* **Audio - 5 tracks:** 1. Japanese Mono Tokai Broadcast Audio (FLAC) - *originally released by AnimeMaakuo, split into episodes by Team Mirolo, retimed by me* 2. English 2007 5.1 FUNimation "Remastered" Dub w/Shunsuke Kikuchi score (AC3) - *from the R1/US Dragon Box* 3. English 2007 2.0 FUNimation “Remastered” Dub w/Nathan Johnson score (40-67), "Remastered" Dub w/Smith/Morgan/Faulconer score (68-74) (AC3) - *from the Orange Bricks* 5. English 1997-8 2.0 Saban/Ocean Dub (40-67) (AAC) - *A re-creation of the original English dub, custom made by me, with gaps filled in with the FUNi/Kikuchi dub in an attempt to create a relatively seamless nostalgic viewing experience. Sourced from the “Rock The Dragon” DVD Set* 1999 Original FUNimation Dub (67-74) (AAC) - *custom track from the FUNi and Madman Single DVDs, with English NEPs and some recaps from TV/VHS* 6. Japanese DVD Audio (AC3) - *from the R2J Dragon Box* **Subtitles - 2 tracks:** 1. English (SSA) - *English official translations originally released by Romao* 2. English Signs/Songs (SUP) - *from the R1/US Dragon Box* *** Moving on to Season 4 next. [MediaInfo](https://pastebin.com/UVyGwm4W)

Answering a comment from the earlier upload - Bardock special will use one of the TOEI Remasters released earlier this year. In my testing the remaster doesn't sync up to R2J so I have to adjust the audio or video. My previous version of Bardock in the old 60-74 torrent has no issues and is R2J synced if you want it now.
For what it's worth, fabre did encodes of the remastered DBZ TV specials which are cut to sync with R2J, combine both HDTV&Gyao video for Special 1 for best result, and fps fix on web source, with public .avs scripts: https://nyaa.si/view/1135394 EDIT: Are you planning on including the English AB Groupe/Big Green dub for the DBZ TV specials?
Thanks so much! Your DBZ release is fantastic quality with beautiful .ass subtitles and HQ original broadcast audio. GTeam made a similar with GT. Have you ever thought an OG Dragon Ball release? Or is it too early question? :)
Dragon Ball Z is the series dubbed in English with various dubs while Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT don't really have a massive amount. Dragon Ball - Blue Water - FUNimation - AB Groupe (Movies 1-3) - Trimark (1-13 episodes) - Harmony Gold (about 30 to 60 episodes) Dragon Ball Z - Saban (Saiyan arc through Early Freeza arc) - FUNimation - Westwood (Trunks arc through Majin Boo arc) - AB Groupe (Movies 1-9, TV Specials 1-2) Dragon Ball GT - Blue Water - FUNimation - AB Groupe (TV Special) Not to mention the Asian-English dubs of Dragon Ball Z. The Blue Water dubs are fantastic imo but it needs to be synced and for the most part it hasn't been done. FUNimation's dub of DB/GT has been synced with Dbox Raws.

@SakoeraTyan That's the one that I did some testing with, but my pre-synced R2J dubs didn't snyc properly. So either my initial syncing was off (possible) or his remaster isn't actually R2J synced. @wampa1 It's pretty early, but I'm pretty sure I'm just sticking with Z. Although the latter half of DB is missing a good quality encode...
Pendekar is rebooting the DVDRip release of theirs but with DVD Remux already available kind of defeats the point to spend time on that.
@ikaos your upload speed is so slow, it is really hard to grab your releases, is it possible to share them on MEGA or Google Drives links ? or at least could you give me the audio files of the “Remastered” Dub w/Shunsuke Kikuchi scores? I only love that audio track for the dub the most . Thanks in advance.

@dragonballlover There's at least 8 seeders right now, so upload speed shouldn't be a problem. This is my preferred method of uploading. I may do some audio only releases in the future, but that's far from now. Also there's nothing unique to my English/Kikuchi track besides the fact that it's R2J synced, and anyone can do that with Dragon Radar.
there is no pendekar.guys,do not wait for pendekar,they've expired long time ago.they been only commenting on their old uploads instead of doing actual work.only 1 good thing they've managed to do is to finish the movies.
Thanks for all this effort you’re putting into to these dbz releases, awesome work and I can’t wait for the next release
Why did you bother changing to AnimeMaakuo. Dragon box audio is even better than this. And the previous MONO you used is the best. Did you even try listening to it. TBH, people should keep your previous release as this is the one that's obsolete.

@gokuz You don't know what you're talking about. The WinxBloom audio (my previous source) is just the AnimeMaakuo Tokai audio but very compressed, reduced from its natural WAV down to 96kb/s and encoded in AAC. I have retimed and preserved the lossless quality of the original BA WAV source and left it in FLAC-16 format, which keeps it at a higher bitrate. Any problems present in the BA would also be present in my old encode, because both versions come from the same Tokai source. It's ironic that you say this torrent is obsolete when you prefer the Dragon Box audio, since this torrent also contains the Dragon Box audio as well, while my old one doesn't, specifically for people that still prefer it.
@iKaos I don't prefer dragon box audio. With that said, the quality is better for WinxBloom rather than lossless AnimeMaakuo. I have no idea what WinxBloom did to the lossless, but it sounds way better. Give it a try, maybe a few episodes. I watched around 3 full episodes with comparison and WinxBloom comes on top everytime.
@gokuz If your being serious than you lack a basic understanding of digital information. If you Copy a piece of data you loose information, let alone re encoding something at a lower bitrate. Not to ruffle any feathers but preference aside, if you honestly think the ba sounds worse than the dragon box i would recommend you see an otolaryngologist

@gokuz I guess it can sound "cleaner" to you because it's missing lots of information, but the fact of the matter is that's not how it's supposed to sound. It's the audio equivalent of the Season BDs - the episodes look "clean" because they've been DNRed to hell and all details have been smoothed into a watercolor mess. It might look "nicer" but the fact is that's not how it's supposed to look. I've listened to several episodes, there is simply more depth in Maakuo's (technically Kei17's) audio as it's the original. There are of course imperfections, but that's part of the nature of all of the BA coming from VHS sources, and is not exclusive to one release over the other. Anyway Romao released the entire series with WinxBloom audio synced to R2J, so by all means grab his release if that's what you prefer.
I think the quality of this Broadcast audio is very good. But it seems to me that this Namek Saga is much quieter than the Saiyan and Freeza Saga. Is it possible?

@wampa1 The only thing I did differently was I used the FLACs that Team Mirolo created by cutting up Maakuo's large WAV chunks into individual episodes, but those were cut up losslessly so there shouldn't be a difference. The only volume adjustments I make are on the rare occasion when I have to use a Dragon Box NEP because the BA NEP is for a movie or special. In that case I only lower the volume of the NEP to match the rest of the audio.
@iKaos I understand. The quality is very good, just seemed quieter to me, thanks for the answer. :)
How much work did it take you to make this release, iKaos?
@iKaos Do you also plan on adding in the Edited FUNimation Dub (1999-2003) DUB? It was featured in the original Toonami/Cartoon Network Broadcast and the Edited VHS Singles since there are differences between the Edited and the uncut DVD/VHS singles DUB such as different dialouge’s in some parts of certain episodes, some parts of the score are switched in around in certain episodes, the narrator change happens earlier in the Uncut DVD/VHS singles DUB (it happens during the Cell Games) then in the Edited DUB (It happens in the in the Buu Arc) and some scenes are toned down a little or are completely cut (such as the Muten Roshi being a pervert scenes) i hope you can find a good source for this dub since its incredibly Rare.

@jugi_v It doesn't actually take me that long, but I don't have a lot of time to work on it. @PavleV I'm aware of the edited dub and I do actually have some sources for it, however I see little value in adding it in its entirety to this already kind of bloated release since it's not that different than the uncut dub. The 1999 track already isn't strictly the uncut dub since I actually use pieces of the edited dub from time to time to fix mistakes in the uncut dub - for example in ep. 72 Vegeta calls Goku "Goku" instead of Kakarot in the uncut, but in the edited he says "Kakarot", so I used the line from the edited dub. It's also the source of the Ginyu recaps and almost all the NEPs. I'm aware of the narrator changes and have edited sources to preserve the original Dale Kelly narration through the Cell Games.
@IKaos Cool i thought that you were only strictly using the Uncut DVD/VHS DUB i was aware about the Recaps and the NEP's you were using from the TV/VHS sources though i had no idea that you were also using the Edited DUB to fix up some of the mistakes that the Uncut DVD/VHS DUB had that's awesome and if you're fixing the mistakes that the Uncut DUB has using the Edited DUB does that mean that the Soundtrack order of the Faulconer Productions score will also be fixed? It was switched around in certain episodes in the Uncut DUB.
iKaos, we are not worthy, but thank you for your continued efforts, I eagerly anticipate your releases.

@PavleV just to be clear, here are all the FUNi dubs of episodes 68-291: 1. 1999-2003 Original FUNi Dub - Uncut (VHS/Singles DVDs) <-- this is the majority of what I use for the "nostalgia" track, track 4 2. 1999-2003 Original FUNi Dub - Edited/Toonami Broadcast (VHS/Singles DVDs) <-- I use this for most NEPs, Cell Games Dale Kelly recaps/NEPs, random mistakes 3. 2007-2009 "Remastered" Dub w/Orignal Kikuchi Score (Orange Bricks, R1 Dragon Box, Season Sets) <-- this is track 2 4. 2007-2009 "Remastered" Dub w/Faulconer Productions Score (Orange Bricks, Season Sets) <-- this is track 3 I am aware of there being differences between the original and remastered dubs in terms of the Faulconer score, like with episode 70 being completely different and many episodes having different cues and mixes. I am however not aware of any differences between the two original dubs when it comes to music. Do you have any specific examples? Feel free to message me in the discord above. I'm a mod so if you message me with legitimate questions you won't get kicked. @sparks @wampa1 thank you!
@iKaos This is unfortunately the only example i can show for now i will try and search trough some more sources and provide more examples here is the short Encode i did for Volume 83 regression https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zHI-S3Uxy2zZ1-Xlr1d8QeXx1C0jX6aX and here is the Encode done by TheBalishChannel from i believe the same volume using the Edited Dub https://twitter.com/BalishChannel/status/998781251132755968\.

@PavleV So for that moment i actually have access to 6 different sources for English/Faulconer (tv broadcast, edited VHS, uncut VHS, uncut DVD, remastered OB, and remastered season set) and all of them match the encode you did (which I assume is from the uncut DVD). I'm not sure where the source TheBalishChannel uses comes from, but it's nothing that FUNimation officially released. It's possibly a fanedit as it seems like the music is mixed a bit louder than it should be. I will also investigate further but I still don't think there are any musical differences between original dubs.
@iKaos I was also thinking that the Encode TheBalishChannel did was probably a fan edit when i was making the comparison since on his twitter he has posted Fan Made Bruce Faulconer tracks and one fan made extension of a track but at same time he did also tweet this https://twitter.com/BalishChannel/status/973791804746354688 and this https://twitter.com/BalishChannel/status/973529459641942017 so i was convinced that the link i gave as a comparison had to be the Edited DUB i guess i was just too confident in my comparison.
Ikios thanks man I'm adding the 4 audio tracks to my R2J remux for all of dbz. This is probably the ultimate way to watch it and I really appreciate all the effort man.
Ikios do you have disc scans??
@iKaos thanks for doing these. Almost every time a good DBZ project is born, it ends up just stopping half way into the series and then fading away. Please don't let that happen to yours because it's so perfect and would be a shame if it goes unfinished. Thank you.

User
@Gnosis you're welcome, but sorry I don't have any scans. @roswell57 I don't plan on going anywhere. I'm about 2/3 done with the Androids saga at this point!
@iKaos That's AWESOME!!!!!!!! Much props! I feel like I've been praying for a release like this for over 10 years. Probably because... I have been! ^_^
@iKaos I made an account just to tell you that I wrote in my journal about how grateful I am for you making the perfect version of Dragon Ball Z. Thank you soo much for taking the time out of your day to do this

I have an obscure trivia for you: when Toonami broadcasted the uncut redub of seasons 1 and 2,Vic Mignogna voiced Burter,but the remastered 2007 release had Chris Sabat re-recorded over his lines because Vic was unavaliable to re-record over Mark Britten's work as Burter for season 3,so Chris Sabat(who was already voicing Burter for the video games),re-recorded over both Vic and Mark's works all the way for consistency's sake in remastered re-dub.Since's Vic' work on Burter was only shown on Toonami(since the Ultimate Uncut DVDs were cancelled halfway),it's very hard to find footage of Vic's Burter unless someone taped those episodes. Years later,they would get Vic to reprise Burter for Dragon Ball Kai,though for the games that came after Kai,Chris Sabat took the role back and still plays him to this day(and after what happened last year,don't expect Vic to return for Burter,Broly or anything else at Funimation ever again...)
Please seed <3
Seems like there is audio out of sync starting at 10:45 on S02E26 on Ocean/Funi track... besides this small issue I have noticed nothing else wrong with the audio in this season.. perhaps there is more to it than I am aware and it cannot be done differently. Just thought I would mention it in the hope of making this ultimate release even better. Thanks again iKaos!!
