Funnier Than it Has Any Right to Be and Smarter for it
25 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dragon Ball Z Abridged is a series that has recycled the animation from the famous anime and edited and added voice acting from fans to make what once was an epic fantasy/sci-fi adventure into a comedy with some of the smartest written dialogue ever gifted to YouTube.

The voice acting adds tremendous levels of comedy with every single voice being perfect for the comedic versions of the characters that are presented in the show. Goku's high pitched idiocy, Vegitta's horse anger, and Nappa's bumbling tones are a joy to watch come out of the mouths of some of the hardest hitting characters ever imagined.

Honestly this series has surprised me the most with its commitment to continuing to up its game. episode after episode the voice quality has gotten better, the editing has become fluid to the point you could forget that the frames are hand-me-downs, and the writing has only gotten better with every episode.

If you haven't already, go to YouTube and binge this amazing series. Even if you are not a fan of the original anime then don't despair, because neither am I and I still loved every hilarious moment.
