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!

i like cut and paste too

Oh dear... if there's one thing I hate about getting classic of the day it's getting idiotic reviews like these from people who don't even bother to read the author's comments or even give credit for hard work. This is the 2nd time I've got classic of the day!
Which makes you think, I must have a fucking good Flash to be a classic twice!

You claim that this was very very familiar... well, it is supposed to be a tribute to one of the greatest scenes from DBZ, I never denied that. It may look like to you that I have taken pictures from websites, but you are quite clearly wrong as I have proven that I drew EVERY picture in the flash and given a link to where my storyboards can be viewed
Even if I did take pictures from websites, it would still take a lot of skill and effort to make a convincing flash animation from it, but then you wouldn't know anything about that, would you? Having not made one yourself.
Therefore, for the reasons stated and proof given your accusation is VOID, and not a reason to rate 1 overall.

Next time I will have ANOTHER TRIBUTE made, it will be of Vegeta turning SSJ for the 1st time, I will include more options in it, including a storyboards section to prove idiots like yourself wrong. Oh and it will be done by myself, just like this was!

Your other scores are unjustified.
Sound a 2? Did you not hear the 4 pieces of music and sound effects?
Style a 1? What's so unstylish about it?

Now begone, fool!

When I clicked this I was expecting to see a video, not just a bunch of images that don't even give the feeling of an animation. You just try doing more frames.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Hey, moron.
I had a nice little chuckle at your review, especially after seeing the pure SHIT (compared to this) you produce, you can't even get a score of over 3! Even if what you said was true (which it isn't) it would still be better than any of your shitty animations.

Anyway, you shouldn't expect to see a "video" when you click to watch, you expect to see a FLASH animation which this was, and it happened to be a very good one, this made you jealous thus making you write a retarded review like you are better or something.

Ask yourself, did this animation deserve 4 for graphics? No, it looks just like the show and was well animated. Did it deserve a 0 for sound? No, it had 4 pieces of music and sound effects. Did it deserve an overall of 1? Fuck no.

Are you a retard? Yes, it certainly seems so...
And I finish with my trademark:

Now begone, fool!

Dude why do you get so pissed when someone gives you a bad review. Why are you so sensitive? I just want to see you waste more of your life by replying to this review and calling me a “cretin”. Here’s an idea, get a life and stop replying to everyone who reviews your flash.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

*shakes head*
Dear oh dear...
When will you fools learn?

Did you DELIBERATELY give me almost all 0 just to say that? Hell, did you even WATCH the flash?
People like YOU are total idiots. I don't get pissed, hell, I enjoy these reviews sometimes, mainly because the people who write them are total morons.

Did your review have anything to do with my flash? No. This is where you fail to realise that these reviews are supposed to be on the Flash work, NOT a message board for you to try and defend your cretin friends.

I'm hardly wasting my life by taking a few minutes replying to this, I enjoy educating your sorts, it's far too easy to say "Shut up you fucking fag!" which would be the actions of someone really pissed off. Even if you fail to realise your mistake, I couldn't really care less.

Now, for your review, I see you didn't even mention anything about my flash. Did you watch it? These review panels are for that, as I have already mentioned.

You just made yourself look like a total idiot. Nice one!

Begone, fool!

Zero Originality!!!

All the scoring is by comparison to the originol episode! This was complete crap! There was no difference between this and the originol DBZ episode! Except that this version is poorly made by comparison. If this were originol you would have had an extremely good rating! But since this was a cut copy, you have to be campared to the originol!

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Oh you let yourself in for it now!

1st of all, before I rip your pathetic review to shreds allow me to tell you: Learn how to spell.

Now that that's out of the way, onto your pitiful attempt at reviewing.

If there was no difference between this and the original how was mine poorly made? You gave no reason, therefore your point is void straight away.

No originality? What did you expect clicking to watch a flash movie called "Goku goes SSJ for 1st time"? Did you expect to see a completely new thing or a *shock* recreation of that scene in Flash! Especially when I mention in my Author's comments that it is indeed a recreation of the scene in Flash! Idiot.

You said you were going to review this in comparison to the original, it seems you have no idea what this means or how to actually do it.
You DID NOT compare the graphics to the original, by giving examples WHY this isn't as good. You just say "this was complete crap" Your lack of reviewing capability is only exceeded by your lack of intelligence to put up a reasonable argument or any sort of critisism. "This was complete crap!" isn't critisism, it's just retarded.

GRAPHICS do NOT deserve a 0, they were good, got better throughout, fully drawn and animated. Not as good as the original, of course, but then, it's just a tribute.

SOUND did NOT deserve a 0, there was 4 pieces of music and also sound effects! Therefore there was sound, so your score of 0 is VOID.

INTERACTIVITY did NOT deserve a 0. There was a play button and 2 replay buttons, therefore your score is VOID.

STYLE did NOT deserve a 0, it wasn't original, yes, but it did have a loading screen, play and a replay screen. Once again your score is VOID.

To finish this off I remind you that
this is a flash TRIBUTE to that scene, it was SUPPOSED to be a copy of the scene, fuckwit.

And one more thing:
Flash by Shimdut:
- none -
Says it all really.

Now begone, fool!

Ok, first off that completely sucked. The main reason I say this is because people think to highly of Kakarot. He isn't the greatest person on dragonball Z, and if that was a tribute then my friend I must say it was more of a disgrace. Now, if you really wanted to pay tribute to DBZ you might have had the brains to make it Vegeta going SSJ for the first time...or Vegeta kicking the shit out of anybody. He is the greatest, wether any of you would like to beleive it or not. But thats besides the point, my opinion is stated and I will stand by it....thanks.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

OK, first of all you are completely wrong. You shouldn't have voted 0 on this because it was about GOKU. Second, I am currently working on a second tribute which is of Vegeta turning ssj for the first time so stfu. Thirdly Vegeta isn't the greatest, he didn't turn ssj first, he got his ass kicked from Goku many times, he ALWAYS lagged behind Goku and at one point, Gohan.

Anyway, your scores.
Graphics: 3
WTF? Are you fucking blind?! I'd like to see you do better,oh wait, you never made anything... I doubt you could even make a shitty stickman movie that'll get blammed in 5 minutes!

Sound: 4
OK? What exactly was wrong with it? DBZ music all the way through and perfect sound effects.

Style: 4
A lot more stylish than most DBZ movies out there...

Overall: 0
You really are one fucking idiot. You voted 0 cos it was about Goku and not Vegeta? Who gives a fuck? It's a DBZ tribute, and fans would like it, you seem to have an unhealthy obsession with Vegeta you fuckwit. People like you are completely retarded for voting 0 on a perfectly fine movie, voting 0 cos it's not your favourite character makes you out to be a compelte moron. You are a disgrace to Vegeta fans everywhere. DBZ isn't real, no need to vote 0 cos this isn't Vegeta.

You are one fucking moron. You disgust me... now get out of my sight, bitch.
