I have been a long time fan of the Dragon Ball & Dragon Ball Z series. It was one of the very first anime which got me into the broader anime fandom. Well, guess what? Funimation is releasing Dragon Ball Z Kai Season 3 today on DVD and Blu-ray! Now you get to experience the action-packed and high-power thrill again in this condensed release.
"On Namek, Vegeta is on the verge of success at gathering all of the Dragon Balls, but the untimely arrival of the Ginyu Force – Frieza's most elite strike team – shatters his plans and forces him to team up with Gohan and Krillin for mutual survival. However, all they can really accomplish against Frieza's ultra-powerful corps of oddballs is a delaying action until Goku arrives on the scene to kick tail with his newly-increased power levels. Injuries Goku suffers in insuring the Ginyu Force's final defeat leaves him temporarily out of the action as Gohan, Krillin, and new Namekian friend Dende seek to use the Dragon Balls to bring back Piccolo (and by extension Kami) and then, with Vegeta and Piccolo's help, face off against the irate Frieza. As all of them soon learn, though, Frieza is capable of transforming multiple times into increasingly powerful forms, and any of them pose a possibly overwhelming challenge."
If Dragon Ball Z Kai is just not your thing, you should know that Funimation also released Spice and Wolf: The Complete Series today. You'll get both season 1 & 2 in this neat little Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack. Spice and Wolf is another one of my personal favorites — filled with fantasy, romance and drama, it is a definite must for your collection.
"Kraft Lawrence, a 25 year old peddler travelling from town to town selling and buying various things to make a living during a period much like Europe in the middle Ages. One night when stopped at the town of Pasroe, he finds in his wagon a 250 year old pagan wolf deity girl named Holo. She appears to be that of a 15 year old girl, except for a wolf tail and ears. She introduces herself as the town's goddess of harvest who has kept it blessed with good harvests of wheat for many years. Despite having the responsibility to watch over the town, she wants to go back to her homeland in the north called Yoitsu, she believes the people have already forsaken her anyway and that she has kept her promise to maintain the good harvests. She manages to bargain her way out of the village by making a deal with Lawrence to take her with him. As they travel, her wisdom helps increase his profits, but at the same time, her true nature draws unwanted attention from the church."
