Producer Takashi Uchida

Dragon Ball Z Hit Song Collection 8: Character Special 2 (ドラゴンボールZ ヒット曲集8~キャラクターズ・スペシャル2/Doragon Bōru Zetto Hitto Kyokushū Etto~Kyarakutāzu Supesharu Tzu) is the eighth installment of the Dragon Ball Z Hit Song Collection series of the anime Dragon Ball Z. It was released by Columbia Records on September 21, 1991, in Japan only. This album is a follow-up to the fourth installment to the series, titled Character Special, which was released in 1990. The album is made up of character songs from the Dragon Ball cast. It would go on the to peak at 76 on Oricon's Japanese album charts.[5]

The album initially picks up where the other character special leaves off. Each song in a way, tells their own unique story. "Capsule Corp." is simply Bulma making random comments about whatever she's doing. "Ichido wa Kekkon Shitai Mambo" features Kuririn singing cheerfully about how much he desires to get married. "Vegeta-sama no Oryori Jigoku!!" marks the only character song in the series, but not the last, by Vegeta. Here, he sings about cooking a special Okonomiyaki while giving "battle commands" to his ingredients who sing backup. "Share 'reba Inochi no Izumi Waku-Waku!! 2" is the follow-up to "Share 'reba Inochi no Izumi Waku-Waku!!" which is both performed by the northern Kaio-sama. Once again he continues to tell jokes that he only finds funny. By the end of the song he has succumbed to a fit of laughter. "Kuchibue no Kimochi Piccolo-Hen" is a follow-up to "Kuchibue no Kimochi", Gohan's whistling tune from movie four which was made into a character song for Gohan in Hit 6. This version is done from Piccolo's point of view. As established in movie four, Piccolo is sensitive to the sound whistling due to his adept hearing. As a result, for most of the song he complains and begs for the whistler to stop until he gives up and rockets away. Prompting an unidentified person to appear and comment on the chirping birds. "I•ke•na•i Oo-La-La Magic" features Chi-Chi forcing Gohan to take part in a mother-son karaoke duet as his and Goku's adventures has made Chi-Chi feel left out. Her plan is to compete in the local karaoke circuit with Gohan.

Despite its focus being on character songs, the album also features an image song by "Pochi featuring Apple Pie" called "Omoide no Tenkaichi Budokai". Which recalls the previous budokais in which Goku participated. Also included, the incidental piece "Takkaraputo Popporunga Pupiritto Paro" from episode 75, Nanatsu no Tama o Soroeshi Mono yo... Sā Aikotoba o Ie!, which serves as Porunga's summoning theme.

CD Box Sets[edit]

With the debut of the Hit Song Collection there have been a few CD sets released featuring songs from the series. The sets range from theme songs to compilations of theme and image songs. The first was the five disc Dragon Ball & Dragon Ball Z: Great Complete Collection in 1994 to the more recent two disc Dragon Ball Z: Best Song Collection "Legend of Dragonworld" in 2006 are a few of these sets.

Dragon Ball Z Complete Song Collection[edit]

Dragon Ball Z Complete Song Collection (ドラゴンボールZ コンプリート・ソングコレクション Doragon Bōru Zetto Konpurīto Songu Korekushon?) is a CD soundtrack box set released by Columbia Records of Japan in 2003. The collection is made up of four three disc volumes that span the entire Hit Song Collection series vocal track library. The collection also includes songs from some of the video game soundtracks (mainly Ultimate Battle 22 and Legends) and rare tracks that prior to this release were only available as bonus tracks on the 8mm singles of the closing themes to movies 10-13. This set is quite sought after by the Dragon Ball fans who missed out on owning the individual albums in the Hit Song Collection series. However many fans have bought this set despite already owning all of the Hit Song Collection albums. Individuals that don't own the Hit Song Collection or this set still got a little something out of this collection if they already own the Great Complete Collection.
