FUNimation Entertainment Reveals Plans for New Dragon Ball Z Blu-ray Disc Collector’s Edition if it Receives 2,500 Pre-Orders

FUNimation Entertainment and Toei Animation US have announced that FUNimation plans to release a new Dragon Ball Z Blu-ray Disc collector’s edition set in commemoration for the show’s 30th anniversary.

FUNimation stated that the company will need to have 2,500 copies of the set pre-ordered in order to manufacture the set. The company explained that it will host a reservation campaign for the new set later, and that if the set does not receive 2,500 pre-orders, FUNimation will not create the set. The company added that 2,500 units are the minimum build order for sets from its printers.

FUNimation explained that it is not looking to crowdfund the set on sites like Kickstarter as those crowdfunding platforms “are typically asking fans to fund the creation of new content, not something like a collector’s edition which may be cool but isn’t quite the same as new content.”

The company has so far announced that the set will include the complete Dragon Ball Z anime series on Blu-ray Disc with new bonus content, an exclusive collectible figure, and “North America’s first-ever full-sized hardback artbook” for the series. FUNimation said it will reveal more information about the set at a later date.

FUNimation has not officially confirmed what aspect ratio the release will have. The company’s announcement image uses the Dragon Balls “Four” and “Three.”

  1. Here I was hoping that Toei was going to say they’d stop picking on Team Four Star. Oh well.
