“Dragon Ball Z Kai” season 2 is just another repackaging.
If you picked up “Dragon Ball Z Kai” parts 3 and 4 (which were previously reviewed here http://dvdcorner.net/2010/12/28/dragon-ball-z-kai-season-1-part-3-blu-ray-and-dvd-reviews/ and here http://dvdcorner.net/2011/03/13/dragon-ball-z-kai-season-1-part-4-blu-ray-review/ ) on DVD or Blu-ray, there’s no need to pick up this season 2 set as episodes 27-52 have been collected in this new repackaged Blu-ray set. In fact, the only things that are new about this season 2 box set are the disc covers and the box/case. All of the extras from parts 3 and 4 (namely the trailers, U.S. cast interviews, and the textless opening and closing songs) have been ported over to this release and the video and audio quality from those discs is exactly the same as well.
Summary: If you have yet to purchase “Dragon Ball Z Kai” parts 3 and 4, feel free to pick this season 2 set up. Otherwise, wait for the new ‘Kai’ sets (such as the upcoming part 8) to be released.
