IIRC the new ones that are in boxsets at decent prices are uncut.

You mean Dragon Ball, right? Not Dragon Ball Z?

I can never find DVDs of Dragon Ball anymore, but the ones that did come out were uncut. I remember when they aired on Toonami, they didn't change the music like they did with DBZ and DBGT which was an EXCELLENT thing. God, even the rap song of DBGT was so gay, it made the One Piece rap sound like great quality old school music.

Well, I don't like the widescreen in the new DBZ DVDs. It's really cutting off stuff and blocking things. And the movies of Dragon Ball I think Curse of the Bloody Rubies I vaguely remember coming out and renting it from my local Blockbuster. Not sure if the other 3 or 4 ever came out. I know in one Dragon Ball movie, Chao Tzu plays an emperor, and there was another Dragon Ball movie that came out before Dragon Ball GT premiered in Japan.

Well, my review of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z will be up in a few weeks anyway to further elaborate my concerns on the censorship.

If you have nothing worthwhile to say then don't say it.

Yes, I mean the origanal Dragon Ball, not DBZ or GT. I know everything is released for DB, but I am having a hard time finding a complete list, how many movies, OVAs, ect. And if everything is uncut on DVD, I know on TV it was severely cut (Not as bad as DBZ though).

So, to expand my question, where can I find uncut box sets of Dragon Ball (The original) and official, if they exist. Rightstuf doesn't have it and amazon is too confusing to find out what is what.

I don't think they have those out on DVD yet but I may be wrong. You will have to go check to make sure. If they do have them let me know so I to can get it. I have been looking myself to getting them.

Why not check the company site? I'm sure if they did a cut version before and this one's uncut, the company site would flaunt that it's uncut.

I tried the official dragon ball site, that was pointless, but didn't think about the company site. Wikipedia says all the DVDs are uncut, though I better be safe then sorry.

I know for awhile, they were doing the same old format that the DBZ DVDs were being done in.

I remember when the 1995 dub came out, there was the Curse of the Bloody Rubies using the same cast. And I'm pretty sure you're aware of an OLD Gold Harmony dub. But they changed the names like Goku to Zero and they dubbed the movie where Chao Tzu is like an emperor. I believe that was movie 3.

I buy some of my stuff all around Asia. Mostly Japan and the Philippines.
