Wow. Got onto the DBZ Collections! A big THANKYOU to Tom and Wade!
Anyway, work is well underway for my next tribute, watch out for it! ;)

If you liked this animation, please give me a review, I try and reply to them all, so give me a review to let me know what you think, thanks.

Well this is my first submission to newgrounds and my first true animation now don't switch off and blam, cos this is my first animation, this isn't like the crappy first animations most submit! This is fully drawn, and well animated!
I started this in around October and throughout this animation you can see my drawing skills improving.

If you're a DBZ fan you'll LOVE this, if you're a neutral and decide to vote on how well done this is you'll find this to be good, if you hate DBZ and blam anything with DBZ in it then please, leave now.

This was a college project and we were originally supposed to do a storyboard of 4-5 (original or based on a tv show or movie of you choice, I chose a DBZ tribute) scenes and put into Flash and add some sound, smooth animation and tweens, well I done over 50 scenes with many sounds and music and I got a merit (which means I showed initiative and went beyond the set goals that had to be met) pass for this, it really is that good.

This is when Goku turns SSJ for the first time on Planet Namek, this is from the time Krillin gets blown up until the time Goku goes SSJ and Frieza is wondering: WTF?!

The music is from the Japanese and English versions of Dragonball Z. It features the original Jap theme song "Cha-la Head Cha-la" (used as main theme for this animation) by Kageyama Hironobu as well as the SSJ fight theme from the Jap DBZ. The other music is "SSJ Transformation" and "Rock the Dragon" by Bruce Falcouner. There are sound effects for lightning, rocks cracking and wave sounds and I can't remember where I found those, but credit to the creators of them.

OK some specifications for best performance:
If your PC is under 1000MHz or you are running many programs turn down the quality so the music is synched right.
If you computer is 1000MHz or higher then it should run perfectly.

Special Thanks go to John Butler, my 2D animation lecturer for helping me with the preloader and teaching me flash and also Akira Toriyama for creating DBZ!

Now, on with the show! ENJOY!

dude.. i liked it but just so u know it sorta sucked u had no speech and u ruined gokus transformation to ssj1 (yess ssj1 is the first level of super saiyan ssj is goku in his normal form) by not having the sound FX with all of its faults i liked it.

As I've said before, I cant do, or know anyone that can do good enough impressions.

Anyway as ss6vegetto has said SSJ and SSJ1 are exactly the same. SSJ is short for "Super Saiya-jin" (Super Saiyan in English) And Goku is normally just a normal saiya-jin (Saiyan). SSJ is the same as ssj1, you use the numbers for the higher levels obviously.

This is the most amazing flash animation that i have ever seen in my life! Its just sheer class! Pure quality all the way!I was fortunate enough to see this flash evolve from its humble beginings as a mere project to the work of sheer genius you see today! I am at a loss for words as to how to describe how utterly amazing it is! Congratulations to BarryTheSuperScot on its creation. Keep them coming! All the best, Colby

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Yeah, that was when I drew Krllin and was gonna originally make this like 5 scenes long, but I'm glad I didn't!
Pity you never finished yours. When I get round to making parodies, Colin I'll let you do your Frieza impression for them. ;)

Best DBZ i've seen on NG

That was really damn good, but I agree with everyone else here, don't bother with the tributes and work on some original stuff. There's clearly a lot of talent in you and don't get me wrong, I'm a huge DBZ fan, but originality counts for so much on here, you really could make it as one of the best flashers on here if you can make something new. Good luck to ya and keep up the good work.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

As i said, I'd liek to do a few more tribute first such as Vegeta going SSJ, Gohan going SSJ2 and Goku going SSJ3. Then after that I'll do some original stuff. ;)
