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!

Finally, an AMAZING DBZ remake... Who cares if no speech was put in? Fuck, the music and sound FX is all really needed... I'm pumped for Vegeta goes SSJ for the first time. Its been so long since you have submitted a movie, I'm guessing this next one will have even better graphics.. If possible...
And to what that last faggot said--
Learn to spell you Alabamian Cocksucker...
no offense to you other guys from Alabama, but hunt that guy down and kill him.

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

Thankyou for the good review. It's nice to get good reviews when I'm getting so many shitty ones from idiots recently.
When you see Vegeta SSJ you WILL be amazed, it's graphics are MILES better than this!
Hopefully get it done by March.

I must say, that was one of the best animated flashes I have seen here on Newgrounds. You captured that entire segment almost flawlessly. Someone with your ability to draw and make the animation so realistic (referring to the original cartoon of course) is just mind blowing. If I could, I would give this flash a 10, but seeing as how the rates only go to 5, that's what I'll do.

Great work, and keep it up.
