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!

nothing new same o same o

nothing new i can watch the samething on cartoon network

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Nothing new? Hence the reason this was a tribute, idiot! It'a recreation, do you read "recreation" and expect something you've not seen? Anyway, you can't watch this on Cartoon Network anytime you want, can you? And that's no reason to vote low. You also didn't vote under your profile username which means you probably don't have one and dont know how to even use Flash so your view is worthless!

it was pretty bad. u copied all the dialouge and not very well. however i HAVE seen worse.

People find this review helpful!
Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

It was bad? And how was this? Did it get to be one of the "CLASSICS of the day", a place on the DBZ collection and get a score of 3.82/5.00 and tons of praise just by chance? Or was it because it was actually a GOOD Flash which had effort put into it? :)
Maybe it's just a case of jealousy? Or just you wanting to be controversial?

And as for dialogue... well, I "copied" it "and not very well"? What? I watched the show and listened to it and wrote down what was said, WORD FOR WORD. How is that "copied" (which it was) yet "not very well" you just contradicted yourself you moron!
It was copied, that's all. Every word was spelt correctly too...

And I'm pretty sure you have seen worse... as am I. I am also pretty sure I've seen better too...

I need not go on about your idiotic scores as I have explained why you, sir, are an idiot.

Now begone, fool!

come on!

That was good and all but if I wanted to see Goku turn into a super sayien I would have watched the cartoon agian.

People find this review helpful!
Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Oh dear...
Another cretin enters the fold...
As I have explained to the idiotic types like you before... this is SUPPOSED to be a TRIBUTE.
ie. A remake of the scene in flash. What did you expect in a flash entitled "Goku goes SSJ for 1st time"? Did you expect anything else? Or are you too retarded to realise that?
If you DID realise that would you have wanted to watch if you were going to vote bad? Think about it, I know that may be hard for you, but you should try it sometime.

You thought this was good? If something's good you should vote good, regardless of whether it's a remake or not. If it's quality vote good because of that. But then, you contradict yourself by giving poor scores...
Do you really think graphics deserved a 4 (were they really that bad?), did sound deserve a 3 (Was the music and sound effects poor or something?)?

Do you really think this flash that had a LOT of HARD WORK AND EFFORT put into it deserved an overall of 3? Well no, it didn't to be fair.

You really shot yourself in the foot on that one. Nice one!

Now begone, fool!

wots that abowt?

that was a very bery very very very very very very very very very very very very very dodgy sho. don get it. y cum no sound?

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I can't help but laugh at this review.
You lack intelligence, your "review" makes this obvious.
You can't spell for shit, this is also apparent in your "review".

I find it hard to even understand your review because of these 2 factors.
"don get it"? Don't review then you fucktard.
"y cum no sound?" There was sound in it, you even gave it a 4 you moron.

Really, don't review another flash again otherwise you'll further show your fuckstickism.

Now begone, fool!

its a bit sad how defensive you are over this one flash you made. you repetivly insult people who are simply giving constructive critisism and then end each of your sad rants with "begon fool".

heres reality kid: you made one flash, ONE, and it had no originality to it at all you couldnt even be botherd with trying to ad voice overs which would have made it look like you actually put effort into this. The guy that made the flash about goku shitting out a kahmehameha has more talent than you.

all in all the only fool here that needs to "begon" is you. you put no effort into this at all and it shows and instead of acting like a mature adult whenever someone points out the flaws of your (and i use the word "your" very loosly considering this is akira toryamas creation only copy and pasted by you) flash you act like a complete jackass.

all in all you have nothing to be proud of over this flash and nothing to brag about.

now go back to the cornor dumbass.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I LOVE and RELISH "reviews" like this! People who do not really review the flash but have a problem with me owning morons who DO NOT give me any constructive criticism on my flash. Most people who score low usually have no reasoning.

"its a bit sad how defensive you are over this one flash you made."
It's a bit sad your entire "review" is about how "sad" I am when I reply to reviews from idiots. I can make a flash, 99.9% of them can't and have NO IDEA (much like yourself) how much work it requires.

"heres reality kid:"
OK, don't try to call me "kid" I am older than you, moron.

"you made one flash, ONE,"
Well done, you can count! But do bear in mind, I've been working on my 2nd tribute for almost 3 FUCKING YEARS! (Due to a lot College/University work from 2003-2005)

"and it had no originality to it at all you couldnt even be botherd with trying to ad voice overs which would have made it look like you actually put effort into this."
OK, now I will direct your attention to the title of this page (It's at the top) and it gives you the name of this flash. Now, that's a MAJOR CLUE to what this is about, and now, I direct your attention to the part that says "Author's comments" this actually goes one further and tells you DETAILS about this flash and it ADMITS (shock, horror!) that this is a remake of one of the greatest scenes in DBZ!!! I know, it's hard to believe, but really, you should read these things.
Also, if you read some of my comments to people who asked why I had no voices you would also KNOW my REASON why I had none, I'll leave it to you to find out why. And trust me when I say I put a lot of effort into this, it tells you details in "Author's comments" I didn't get a merit for nothing...

"and instead of acting like a mature adult whenever someone points out the flaws"
OK, so what "reviews" have pointed out "flaws"? Let's look at some low scorers like yourself... here's a couple of examples:

“Why listening this crap when u can see the real episode”

“only ppl who like dbz r little bitches with no hair on their nuts / realistic dbz movies like this on newgrounds make my eyes burn”

Oh dear... Can you say these "reviews" have constructive criticism? OR point out any flaws? Fuck no.
My replies are justified.

Now, there are other reviews that actually DO give constructive criticism, if you go back and read the reviews you’ll find them by people like mike_mg32005, JDCAce to name but a few. You could learn how to write a proper review from these people.

"of your (and i use the word "your" very loosly considering this is akira toryamas creation only copy and pasted by you) flash"
I give Akira Toriyama credit in the "special thanks" in the end credits. And it's impossible to "copy and paste" an episode into flash, I drew everything freehand.

"complete jackass."
Funny, that's what I'm thinking of you... these reviews are for reviewing the flash, not to comment on the author's replies to idiotic people.

"all in all you have nothing to be proud of over this flash and nothing to brag about."
I am proud I got a merit in college from this flash and it allowed me to get into the 2nd year of college and move onto 3d animation and then into Uni to do a degree in computer animation (and I graduated). Not meaning to brag there, just guess I must be doing something right...

"now go back to the cornor dumbass."
I say this about your whole review, which ended in this ill-advised comment... YOU CAN’T SPELL, you can't even spell right the word I had already wrote many times "Begone". You wrote it twice and didn't get it right in either case, among loads more misspelled words. And not to mention, your terrible grammar... So to end your review written like that and to call the author a "dumbass" maybe you should look at how your own review was written, as it may just make you look like a complete fool.

I believe the expression for this reply is "ownage".
