Dragonball Z: The Director's Cut


Just watched the first three episodes of the new "remastered" Dragonball Z...

And it's awesome! I was actually disappointed at first when I saw that the animation was still the same (I thought it was actually a remake or reimagining as is common these days). But as I continued watching, the wonder of the past Dragonball Z seized me, and I was aching to see more energy-blasting action.
The pacing's a lot quicker now too. They're taking out most of the grunting, staring fillers, and cutting straight to the chase. As episode 3 ended, Goku and Raditz just died from Piccolo's Makansanpo (sp?) and everyone's dreading the arrival of Vegetta and Nappa in one year.
Can't wait to see the next episodes!
