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 would say all you need is voice acting

But i guess that would be to much to ask for. either way this is amazing.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I've already explained why there is no voice acting. I'll put an explanation in Vegeta SSJ why it has no voice acting either...

Very good flash indeed ^_^

I think you did an excellent job with this flash. It's not as easy as some people may think to recreate scenes and make few mistakes, and this is certaintly no exception! The artwork could have been touched up a LITTLE bit, but other that it's perfect

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Yup, true. It's very hard to recreate so closely and not make mistakes. It's taken longer than expected for Vegeta SSJ (Been REALLY busy with College and now uni and it holds it back). Anyway it's graphics are FAR FAR better than this!

This is Good!

I really liked this flash and I almost laughed at Goku yelling at Gohan.
Barry the SuperScot, if people tell you that this flash is a 2 or less and is a piece of *beep* tell them that they are crazy and give them a Computer Virus and tell them that they can be Blammed themselves.
Even I thought the reviews were abusive, because I went through the Reviews and I was reading the bad comments I even laugh at them.
Why don't you make more DBZ Flashes or better yet make Dragonball GT Flashes. DBZ is my #1 Favorite.
This all I can say so bye berry.
P.S Email me and then we can be Friends and Give me a comment on my reivew. See Ya X-mas!

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I'm glad you like the flash. I am making more DBZ flashes, Vegeta SSJ is on the way. I will NEVER make a GT flash though, as GT is a terrible series.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I liked it a lot, it's just like the real thing. Almost word for word too. I especially liked the quality of the drawings.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I'm happt that you enjoyed it, I put a lot of work in. :)
