Meanwhile, Manga Entertainment gives us Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters Part 2, out today on DVD and Blu-ray. Featuring episodes 122-144 of Toei Animation’s revised and remastered retelling of the original Dragon Ball Z story, this four-disc collection sees Goku and Majin Vegeta’s brutal battle building up energy for Majin Buu, breaking the seal that kept the ancient (and distinctly pink) evil contained and unleashing him upon the world.
