Remux of all "Ultimate Uncut Edition" episodes and movies* released by FUNimation from 2005-2006. FUNimation released the first 27 episodes of their 67 episode uncut redub of DBZ in this format, before canceling the release and moving on to the more infamous Orange Bricks. *mrbean below has let me know that M2 and M3 are not technically part of the UUE line, but were released with visually similar packaging as part of the "First Strike" box set. Some particulars of this release: 1. The episodes contain the LATAM Spanish dub, a rarity that's not included on any other release outside of Z Movie 5. 2. This is the only release to get a 5.1 track for the American replacement score, in this case done by Nathan Johnson (all Z movies outside of Movie 4 have a 5.1 score) 3. The episodes contain a unique OP and ED, the last of FUNi's attempt to be "edgy" with their Z releases. The OP was written by Dave Moran, while the ED theme, still used today, is by Mark Menza. 4. This is probably the best the show looks on DVD, in some cases even having more detail than the Dragon Boxes. I would say overall the Level Sets look better though. 5. Like all pre-"remastered" releases, there is no English/Kikuchi track here. --- *Video:* 720x480 4x3 Untouched Remux *Audio:* English 2.0 (FUNi), English 5.1 (FUNi), LATAM Spanish 2.0 (episodes only), Japanese Mono, Commentary track (Movie 1 only) --- Like my other SoM release, these files are untouched remuxes from the original DVDs. If you want other dubs, etc, see my "Season 1" encodes. Thanks to: N12 for the original ISOs (https://nyaa.si/view/1139564) Mauriziano666 for the movie ISOs (https://nyaa.si/view/962574)

[Vol. 10](https://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Ball-Principe-Sayajin-Spanish/dp/B001C4ZQDO) of the UUE was released, but only with the Latin Spanish dub and OB video quality so wouldn't have been worth including it, anyway. Someone is apparently trying to sell it for $200. 😆
Thank you so much, Great iKaos ! Please do a remux for both DBZ and DBGT singles . By the way, when can we see your R2 J season 9 release ?

@The-good_Man1994 I did this awhile ago as a request for the someone on the SoM server, only just now got around to putting it on Nyaa. 27 episodes is one thing, 291+64 is another. The whole point of my other releases is to eliminate the need for 15 different versions of the show on people's hard drive. I have little interest in the video for the DBZ singles since it's generally inferior to the DBOX. Season 9 is coming soon, it's a group effort so I am still waiting for a few things from others. Good news is the batch will be not too far behind since I've already started working on things for it.
Ask him to do a remux for Funi dubs of the Z singles and the GT ones too, anonymous seed of might member . He might listen to you - _^ Singles footage of Z is inferior to the DBOX one alright , but it's not green tinted which is very good to our beloved eyes . Nice .
Awesome stuff @iKaos thanks for the remux, love it! :D
@iKaos From your last comment I assume that there is a chance you may have a copy of the ISO's for the DBGT singles uploaded by N12. I don't like bothering people for help, but I was hoping if you did have them that you would be kind enough to seed that torrent until I get it. If you cannot right now, I will be trying to download it for another year or 2. I am at 9.6% and am being teased by 2 DVD's being at 99%. I've stated in the comments of that torrent that I will seed for 3 months or even 6 months if requested. I always seed for as long as I say I will, and if you ask me to seed even longer, I will. If you don't have it, maybe you know someone who does and would be willing to help at some point. I will leave a comment in that torrent thanking whoever seeded and to say that I have finished and will be seeding. I have a comment for movies 2 & 3 being called UUE in this torrent. The detail is just for anyone who is interested.... Funimation only ever made a UUE for DBZ Movie 1 which was released on it's own. Movies 2 and 3 are **NOT** ultimate uncut editions and were never released seperately. They were only ever released in the "First Strike Box set" (along with movie 1 UUE) which was released a few months after movie 1 UUE was released on it's own. So I think movies 2 & 3 should always be refered to as the First Strike box set so not to confuse people into thinking they are remastered UUE which they are NOT. After they discontinued UUE (DBZ 1-27 & Movie 1), Funimation released the "First Strike box set", I assume for the purpose of completing the initial long overdue release of the audio for the Funimation voice cast for DBZ movies 1-3 so that finally all DBZ episodes and movies would have consistent voice actors, whereas previously only the pioneer DVD's with the Ocean voice cast existed for those 3 movies. Continued in next comment...
Funimation made the DVD box art for DBZ movies 2 & 3 look the same as movie 1 UUE, but you can clearly see that Movies 2 & 3 **DON'T** say at the top of the front cover "The Ultimate Uncut Special Edition" like movie 1 does. I suppose this was done so the box art of all 3 DVDs look consistent and changing the box art for movie 1 wouldn't make sense. They also removed the sort of holographic look to the box art for movie 1 UUE when including it in the box set. But the initial separate release of Movie 1 UUE has that same holographic look to the box art as the box art for episodes 1-27 do. I suppose that look was reserved for UUE releases. When I noticed this I had a hard time confirming it, not finding anything searching google & kanzenshuu. I only initially noticed the lack of movies 2 & 3 saying they are UUE at the top of the box art. My searches included "Ultimate Uncut", and when I just searched "DBZ First strike", I found only one confirmation of my suspicions from a random website with a very detailed review that doesn't use the words "Ultimate Uncut" to point out that Movie 1 is UUE and Movies 2 & 3 are not, but instead states in the reviews in detail how movie 1 is remastered and that movies 2 & 3 are not remastered and don't look nearly as good. That is exactly the information I was looking for. Here is the review: http://www.jonathanlack.com/2007/04/from-archive-dragon-ball-z-first-strike.html I have since looked at the difference between movies 2 & 3 from the First stike box set and movies 2 & 3 from the DBZ pioneer movies (which I think are also referred to as DBZ singles). The ones from the First strike box set do have a bit better quality video, but it is clear that the video is taken from the pioneer movies since especially in movie 2, what is bad about the video quality is exactly the same such as spots of green discolorations in the same places and blurriness. The pioneer movie 3 is much better quality to begin with, so movie 3 from the first stike box set looks much better than movie 2.
@mrbean Give me your discord account so I can help you getting what you asked for .

@mrbean you should really try the SoM discord, your opinions and research would be very valuable there. In any case I don't have the GT singles but I can relay your message and we'll get them seeded for you. As far as the UUE movies go, this is actually news to me but makes a whole lot of sense considering the video quality of M2 and M3 are not the same as M1. I had assumed by the box art that they're all from the same line. Thanks for your input, and I guess just consider this "UUE + First Strike Movies" then. @The-good_Man1994 nothing stopping anyone else from doing a remux, not like the DVDs are new.
@mrbean it was on my "to seed" list im seeding it now. if you could pick up the seeding that would be cool because there is so much left to upload and i cant keep uploading if im stuck seeding older stuff that i planned on seeding after everything we had was released.
Sorry for the late reply @JySze You can stop seeding now. Thank you so much for seeding N12’s DBGT Torrent, and for all your responses to my questions for your torrents. I am only able to seed one of your very large torrents with constant downloading since I only have 1.2kb/s upload speed. I am now getting the DBGT Webdl’s, and will switch to other large torrents of yours after that. I am having trouble keeping up with the downloading. There are a couple of large torrents from your first batch I haven’t started yet, and so many 50GB torrent from your latest batch. When I am done downloading I will be in a position to seed your torrents where needed. I’m sorry I had to stop N12’s DBGT torrent for the last 10 hours to organize the files to back them up, and I fell asleep as I was doing that at 4am. I just finished and will be seeding in less than an hour if not right away. I will seed for at least 3 months, but most likely 6 months. I have to limit my upload speed between 9am-5pm on weekdays to half speed & cannot upload between around 3pm-10pm while I work. But it will be full speed the rest of the time even when I sleep. Although until all your increadible amounts of amazing uploads stop, my upload speed will suffer greatly. @The-good_Man1994 Actually I don’t have a discord account. But thank you so much for your offer to help. JySze has seeded the torrent, so I’m OK now and I’m seeding. @iKaos Thank you so much for relaying my request to seed N12’s DBGT torrent. I was starting to loose hope. I very much appreciate your help and I hope one day there is something I can do for you. I don’t have much time right now for discord, but thank you for the recommendation for the SoM discord. I spend all my free time organizing, gathering info, and backing up all of my downloads. It is an endless task which I hope to finish by the end of this year for the organizing and backing up anyways (Gathering info seems like it will never end). When that’s done I’ll have time for discord.

shame it's impossible to find recordings of the Toonami's broadcast for season 2 of this dub for completionism sake since Burter had a different voice(played by Vic Mignogna and replaced by Chris Sabat for the remastered sets onwards.)
Thanks for the seed! Great upload! Even though i don't have very good upload ill try and keep this one seeded as long as i can
@iKaos, for you which is better Dragon Box or UUE?
