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!



This was sweet the graphics rocked the sound was great everything was awesome

Thanks for the review!
Took me like 5 months (although I never really worked on it for 2 of them :P).
Vegeta SSJ does look better than this, btw...

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.

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!

great piece of animation

Just like to start by saying that this was a great flash cartoon, and a good tribute. Looking forward to Vegeta SSJ. Everything was great, except goku was a TINY bit weird.
I agree with you about the voices: they are kinda stupid. And, as a fellow animater (none on newgrounds though), i know how hard it is to sync speech with an animation.
Well, keep up the good work, and i can't wait to see more of your work.

PS. your replies to some of the crappy reviews are pretty funny

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Thankyou very much for the good review!
I'm glad I'm finally hearing a lot from people who understand why there are no voices in the animation!
I hope to finish Vegeta SSJ ASAP, I'm just a bit lazy... ;)

And I'm glad you liked my replies to those idiots who diss my flash. It's usually easy (and fun) due to them lacking the intelligence to actually form a reason to back up their pathetic reviews. ;)

Go you...

This was one of the best pieces of flash I've ever seen. Of course, I haven't seen all that many, but if I were ever to make one, yours would definately make mine look like garbage. I've always wanted to make one though..but back to the point.

I knew the style from just a glance, and though there were the few minor flaws, for example proportion and such on Goku, they weren't that tremendously apparant unless you're someone like me that looks at small details all the time. I really enjoyed it, and I think I can relate to not having voice-overs. For one thing, it would be hard, and another thing... the english dubbed voices are freaking stupid. So... I can't wait to see your Vegeta one.

OH..and your Freiza was awesome. He looked just like he did in the show, same with Kuririn/Krillin, until he exploded. BAHAHA

Thankyou for the review! It's nice to see another intelligent reviewer that understands why I did not put in voices...
Wait until you see Vegeta SSJ! It blows this one away!

Very Nice

Hey i watched this and just had to review.It is a very impressive peice of flash.I know it takes a very long time to make flash,let alone a peice of art like this :).I gave graphics a 7 for the fact that goku didnt seem right somehow :).I think that the next tribute with kickass.I also noticed no voices from the original series.Im very happy you didnt put them in,they sound like crap.The no voices seems to add suspense.Anyways this is getting quite long.Nice flash keep up the good work.
