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!

Unless I can get someone who is really fucking great at impressions then yes, i will have voices in the next animation... but if not then, no. More subtitles... :P
Thanks anyway.


Yeah its pretty cool, few problems though but cool. You should have added some voices to it, Its kinda boring reading the writing, and the replay button isnt working? anywho good work.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I must once again stress, I CAN'T add voices... i won't use a sound file ripped from the show as it wont synch right and sound tacky and I know no-one who can do good voices.
The replay buttons do work, btw...


It was very good but.......ive seen it already on T.V so it was rather dull. other than that good try!

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Well, it was supposed to be like the original. :P
3 for sound?! What about the music?!
And of course i will keep making animations like this.

Very well done

Now this is a good flash, i wish it would of had some sound but oh well. I love it when the lightning is flashing in the background while he's super pissed and frieza looks all scared like the queer that he is, nice job, keep making movies as good as this one.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Super Vegeta soon! ;)
