»Dragon Ball«: New disc date of the first HD box & pre-order possible
November 1, 2022
A few days ago we reported that the first box of the HD remake of Dragon Ball has been postponed until next year. However, since no specific date has yet been announced, it is now clear when the first HD box will be available in stores.
According to an entry on Amazon, the first Dragon Ball HD box set is expected to be released on DVD and Blu-ray on January 12, 2023. Originally, Crunchyroll (formerly KAZÉ Anime) was planning to release on October 10, 2022. Pre-orders are now available via Amazon .
For the new HD edition, the image format on the Blu-ray Disc will be upscaled to 1920×1080 (16:9) Pillarbox, which will make the full version of Dragon Ball commercially available in Germany for the first time. The DVD version still contains the original 4:3 aspect ratio.
In addition, scenes missing in the German version are supplemented with German subtitles in the original Japanese language. Accordingly, in addition to the well-known German dubbing, the Japanese voice output is also optionally included – both on DVD and on Blu-ray.
Dragon Ball has 153 episodes and aired on Japanese television from February 1986 to April 1989. The Toei Animation studio, directed by Minoru Okazaki and Daisuke Nishio, was responsible for the adaptation. In Germany, Dragon Ball celebrated its premiere in August 1999 on RTL II, before the German TV version was released on DVD by KAZÉ Anime.

WHAT IS DRAGON BALL ABOUT :
Brave heroes, oddballs, nasty opponents and exciting fights – all this is Dragonball! Strong nerves are required here, because the fight for the fate of the earth is entering the first round. But before he becomes the savior of the world, the little Saiyan Son Goku lives all alone in the wilderness. That only changes when he meets Bulma and goes with her in search of the legendary Dragonballs. Luckily, because otherwise he would probably never have met the Turtle Lord. He trains Son Goku and teaches him some of his strongest techniques. And then there's the shape-shifting pig Oolong, the not-so-terrible Beef Devil, and of course, Baldy Krillin. Together they form an unbeatable team that is just warming up. Ring free – the battle of good against evil begins!
