Hey

Are they going to start showing any new episodes soon? i've been watching the episode when goku is making the spirit bomb for it feels like a year. this is getting rediculous.

gohanRULEZ 02:57, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Probably, I don't see why not. They're only going to erase fillers


Hey 2.0 - different person!

one thing that really angered me for some reason

because i remembered this part very well for some reason..

when vegeta comes back from the dead and he says kakerot you dog you've done it you're a super saiyan i can see it ... they changed that .. o and right before he dissapears instead of can a ghost do this vegeta says sorry it didn't take... i feel like vegeta is less power hungry and more of a wimp and is it just me or goku seeming more power hungry i mean i know he wanted to surpass each level before but whoever did the research on dbz got it dead wrong because goku was the calm but serious type , never power hungry... they need to fix this if they plan on cell or buu saga..

- just my thoughts - andrew

Uhh

Toei says that DB Kai will be an "Akira Toriyama original cut edition" does that mean that after the Freiza arc there gonna stop?

gohanRULEZ 02:05, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

It means it's going to closely follow the manga, eliminating fillers, like the Garlic Jr. Saga--Rod|talk 04:35, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

No! (Cries for an hour)Ok I'm over it.Thanks :3

Images

I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this, but would it be a good idea to replace images around the wikia with the higher quality Kai images--Rod|talk 01:30, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

I don mind,but we have to find them.

Blood

FreshKing99 says

"In Dragon Ball Z Kai Why do they sensored the blood? Blood is what everyone experinces bloood when they please put blood on nicktoons and make them not talk so much

Saibamen

The Saibamen do not appear in the ending,they appear in the opening,but not the Ending.

gohanRULEZ 01:37, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

That's why the sentence is structured so that it says new animations are available in the opening and closing. [it's irrelevant whether they appear in one and not the other because they do appear in the opening.] - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 03:34, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Weird inconsistency.

I haven't seen many of the new episodes yet but from what I've seen it's all pretty good except for one thing; for some reason a few scenes that were supposed to have blood did not. They don't seem to be taking out /all/ of the blood, just the blood from a few scenes, like when Piccolo killed Raditz, Goku and Raditz are supposed to have blood gushing out of their stomachs but they don't. Yet in the next scene Raditz is coughing up blood rather profusely. Why is it OK for Raditz to have a mouthful of blood but a hole the size of a softball doesn't bleed at all?

Censorship is higher now,then when DBZ was released.

gohanRULEZ 17:19, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

And the censorship isn't just limited to violence - a number of situations involving nudity are more edited than ever before as well. Naked child Goku/Gohan are shown without genitals and the scene of Bulma standing up in the bath is edited as well. Yes, censorship in Japan is much higher than it was back in the day. Ttc817 20:06, September 25, 2009 (UTC)

There was never blood spewing out like crazy in the manga anyways when Raditz got killed by the Special Beam Cannon. And DBZ Kai is supposed to follow the manga more closely, so they didn't really censor it. They corrected it

New OP and ED

It's been 21 episodes and still no new op or ed. They'd better have a new one this week.

GohanRULEZ talk contr 21:21, September 6, 2009 (UTC)

they don't have a new opening BUT at each new saga they show scenes of the final battle in the up rez you'll notice at the start of the ginyu saga they changed the scene of vegeta vrs goku to SSJ Goku vrs Frieza final form

Major cut-down of canon material

Never mind the filler stuff, Kai has cut down tremendously on non-filler material. I noticed this by watching my favorite era, for example. Three episodes, Namek's Defense, The Hunted, and The Prince Fights Back have all been conjoined into one episode. This is horrible as it cuts down on actual canon material. It also cuts down Dodoria's appearance ratio, of which he was initially in 6 episodes but now is in 4 for this Kai version. For some reason, the animation seems extremely fast-paced as opposed to how it was supposed to be. They skip major conflicted emotional reactions from the characters themselves and the fights fly right by. Dodoria's onslaught is supposed to last an entire episode. His chase of Gohan and Krillin is on the next episode. And his demise at the hands of Vegeta is on the next. It's not supposed to take place in the timeframe of one episode. Now I know that the Frieza fight, for example, will be cut from it's 80 episode radius to maybe around 10. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 14:32, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

the 1st episode you listed was in the episode (Protect the Dragonballs! The Namekians All Out Attack!) only the latter 2 were condensed into the episode (Dodoria's Terrifying Chase! A Truth Revealed to Vegeta!) WaterKirby1994 01:14, November 17, 2010 (UTC)WaterKirby1994 November 16, 2010

I just saw my most favorite episode in the revised version of DB Kai, Zarbon's transformation. It is flat out horrible in comparison to the original Japanese version. The fight's duration has been cut in half. And the actual fighting has been sped up notoriously to fit it all into half of one episode. That seriously annoyed me. Zarbon's first encounter with Vegeta takes 2 episodes, not half of one episode. Another problematic aspect was the music. It clearly failed in comparison to the original. "Kyoufu no Ginyu Tokusentai" is the best theme. To remove that is to make a great error. In it's place, nothing has been added but sounds of the characters, horrible decision. This was a terrible blunder, personally I hate Dragonball Kai's revised edition. I find original Japanese to rule above all else. Dragon Ball Kai, to me, is a failure. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 16:50, September 25, 2009 (UTC)

Now that my favorite saga has aired, I realized how horrible the cutdown has been in terms of character appearance for my most favorite character, Zarbon, in this reversion. He initially appears in 14 consecutive episodes in the original Japanese version. He's now in 8 episodes in this version. I really strongly dislike this Kai reversion. It's likely that the entire Ginyu Force will be taken down in about 5 episodes flat rather than the 12 episodes they initially maintained. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 13:52, September 30, 2009 (UTC)

They said that they were going to cut down on filler. Those cuts were expected. Sting! TenRyuoh! 00:52, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

The stuff they cut wasn't filler. It was fight material itself. Not filler. They also edited the fights heavily for some reason. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 00:54, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
probable because some of the fights like Goku VS Frieza during Nameks 5 minitues to destruction episodes for example were fillier were they not?.--InoNOTHING 01:05, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

Most likely. The edits were probably made to speed up the episodes so they can get to the Goku vs Frieza fight sooner. Sting! TenRyuoh! 01:09, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

The Goku versus Frieza fight had LOTS and I mean LOTS of filler. But the fights between Zarbon and Dodoria did not have any filler and they didn't need to be filtered or sped up, they were only 2 episodes to begin with, there was no reason to speed them up. The Frieza fight is likely going to be cut from 35 episodes to just 10 episodes. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 01:29, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah probable and i wonder why they would cut down on the Zarbon, Dodoria fights if their only 2 episodes long although during the second fight between Vegeta and Zarbon they used clips from their first fight so pehapes that's why they cut it down a bit.--InoNOTHING 01:40, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

Well,to be honest,both Zarbon and Dodoria are minor Characters,while Goku and Frieza are main characters(and I don't think any one cares about either character or at the very least,I don't.) Besides,as they said before,they wanted to speed up the episodes,so if they shorten a few fights I don't think anyone is going to care so long as it isn't a major fight(i.e. Goku vs Frieza) Sting! TenRyuoh! 01:45, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

No, I don't mean the reused footage, that's mere seconds. I mean full segments of the fight. Like when Zarbon grabs Vegeta and headbutts him, the next scene is supposed to show him tossing Vegeta in midair and colliding with him again before he backflips. And he's supposed to taunt him with "Now do you see you can't win". This segment should not have been removed. It's my favorite fight, I'd know the manga reference is exactly the same as the anime, there's no reason for them to cut out official fight material. And in response to GohanRULEZ, you may not consider them main, but to me, I wouldn't even like DBZ if it were not for them, also the Frieza versus Goku fight is going to be cut down the most, from 35 episodes to 10 episodes. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 01:48, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

Why should you even care? So they cut some scenes,who cares? The main thing I'm worried about is the OP and ED. It's been 25 episodes and yet they don't have a new OP and ED(FMA:brotherhood is also on it's 25th Episode and they have a new OP and ED,yet DBK does not) Sting! TenRyuoh! 01:54, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

I care because they are going to obviously cut down the entire Ginyu Force arc from 13 episodes to a mere 5. Guldo is probably getting taken down in 1 episode instead of the 3 onscreen appearances he has. Recoome's fight is no longer going to be 3 episodes in duration, but 1... and Captain Ginyu's conflict will be cut down to maybe 2. This is horrible for someone who's sole purpose of liking DBZ is the supporting characters. At this rate, all the rest of the remaining characters I actually like from each corresponding saga (Android 19, Dr. Gero, Dabura, Pui Pui, etc.) are all going to have such a limited span in appearance, it's not even funny. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 15:19, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

I think it's kinda funny. They are supporting characters with no real plot importance. Sting! TenRyuoh! 18:21, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Is that why their names are in the episode titles for more than anyone else in each corresponding saga? I don't like heroes, I only like villains. So for me, it makes a lot of difference. Plus, take them out of the sagas and you'd be getting rid of the only actual fights in the whole series. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 01:27, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Not really. Even without the unimportant fights,the series has a large amount of great battles. As for the liking the villains part,I feel sorry for you,because no character you like will ever win. :3 Sting! TenRyuoh! 02:37, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Nah, I don't think you understand. I don't want them to win. I don't care about that. In fact, the reason why I like them is because they die. I like them because they lose. To me, the people who die are the best. In death, I find great respect and honor; and I love those who perish brutally and I hate those who live and become lame and boring through life. It's very deep and psychological; you'd have to understand the mentality philosophically in order to truly comprehend the reasoning. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 04:17, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

No,I under stand; You like them because they die,but there hasn't been a single DB villain who's died with honor,and hating some just because they live and become boring? That part makes no sense. Look,I'm bored with this,So I'll end this by saying,I don't really care what you think(no offense) to me; those cuts were needed so they can get to the fights everyone wants to see. Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow. :3 Sting! TenRyuoh! 07:01, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Those fights you are looking forward to are going to be cut too. The Frieza fight will be cut from 35 to only 10 episodes. The Perfect Cell fight will be cut to about 6 episodes. And the Buu fight will likewise be cut to around 10 episodes. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 14:27, October 7, 2009 (UTC)
I don't really see why people are surprised by this, you honestly thought there where 250 episodes worth of filler?--gene195 14:29, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Thing is,I just don't care. As long as I see them,I'm good.

Sting! TenRyuoh! 16:25, October 7, 2009 (UTC)


Sure cutting the long fights are ok since after a while that fight between frezia and goku got kinda long especially with the whole planet is going to blow up in five munutes. The short ones like Zarbon beating Vegeta because Zarbon transformation made everyone who watched the fight relize that Frezia is much stronger then we thought he was. All filler villians have some important influence in one way or another. Frezia's henchmen show how brutal of a tyrant he is. Darthwin 21:09, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

This has gone on long enough...

It has now been 26 episodes and we have not yet seen a new Opening or Ending to Dragon ball kai. I am getting mad,if there is no new OP or ED next week,I will give up on this series.

Revelation

The main page says the Z was completely removed from the title. I thought so at first, but now I don't think it was! If you look at the kanji for 改(kai), It's two separate kanji put together, and the one on the left side resembles a Z. I would bet anything that they took the "Z" out because they thought they were being cute/smart with the kanji. User:Virtues777

Censorship

According to Sankaku Complex, the recut series is receiving some less than welcome revisions in the form of the removal of shattered bodies spurting blood, something sure to disappoint gore-hungry fans.

Name fiasco

So, I am at a loss for what to do here guys. I have thought about just creating a separate article for Funimation's Dragon Ball Z: Kai and renaming this one back to just Dragon Ball Kai. I believe this would help avoid confusion and this way, the separate information regarding the English and Japanese versions would be easily inquired. What do we think?

I personally like to consider what will happen in a year, or two, or whenever Kai comes out in America. It is completely possible that a whole new generation of kids will watch in America and other English-speaking countries, and they may only know the series as Dragon Ball Kai Z. The series will most likely have the same content (more or less) in English as in Japanese, so having two near-identical articles seems redundant. Since this site is for the English-speaking fans, I think we should preemptively leave the article as Dragon Ball Z Kai and just make a note somewhere that the "Z" was added in America by FUNimation. -- Kamehameha.10X.Ka.me.ha.me.ha.....talk.....contrib. 00:04, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

English VA's

So, if its getting released in English, any word on the English dub? Is it going to be in Japanese with subtitles or are they going to reunite all of our favorites for the new series.

We all know that VA's have to eat too, and a "new" Dragonball series being offered to the original English VA's would be like offering Ice cream to a child with ADHD. You have a good idea what going to happen, and you most certainly want to stick around for the show.

me meself thinks the wanka who made Dragonball Z should continue the whole series on tv.

Cartoon Network Not First Home

The note about Cartoon Network being the first and only home for Dragonball in the U.S. is misleading. Well before I ever saw Z I saw episodes of the original Dragonball on a local station. It was one of the newer network affiliates I believe, though I cannot quite remember which. 24.15.51.108 07:34, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

The piece of information that you're refering to doesn't state that Cartoon Network is the first and only home of DBZ in the US. It is saying that DBZ is generally associated with Cartoon Network in the US. Though I do agree that it could be a tad misleading.  SSWerty  08:23, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

That's awesome! I would like to mention though, that we don't have any power or connection to the Dragon Ball franchise here on the Dragon Ball wiki.

i dont think they'll cut off the buu saga cause that saga is cannon to the manga.all they are gonna do is cut out the filler scenes
gohanfan101
them cutting out he buu saga is a filthy rumor dont worry i dont think toei animation would be downright retarded to keep it out because its canon
I think they might cut it out, because they've only just brought Imperfect Cell into the series, they're only on episode 70 in Japan and the entire series is said to be only about 99 or 100 episodes long.
everyone knows, but is offical to cut the most critical part of the series, the buu saga.

Yeah, all three series were aired. Dragon Ball still airs on Cartoon Network cos they never stopped showing it. It started airing about two or three years after FUNimation started dubbing it and ended for several months while the channels got hold of the Majin Buu sagas and GT aired a year after it started in the US. Dragon Ball started airing after GT finished and that was in 2005. If that's anything to go by, then it looks like I'm in for a wait. :(  SSWerty  06:08, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

I'd like this question answered too. Does the Japanese version have any censorship because I'll just watch the normal version if so :\ Composite 4

The DVDs contain the same amount of blood and violence as the Japanese version. There are some differences though, like some techniques keeping their original names (Piccolo's Makankosappo, and Krillin's Kienzan.) Besides that, there are no differences between the Japanese and English dvds of Dragon Ball Z Kai. 97.101.121.193 23:36, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Just a thought. So many people that buy kai from abrode in a diffrent region from America wonder, will kai work on my DVD or blue ray player?

My proposal is to add what the region encodings are in the table of the kai dvd and blue ray deatailing their realse and content act under the deatails section.

id have to disagree with the first post. goten was critical to the plot as he was gohans younger brother. i would have to say that dbz fans felt that they needed someone else younger in the z fighters (aside from young trunks of course) because otherwise fans would seem indifferent to trunks and quite frankly the plot he ties into. in my opinion, those two were the glue that held the series togerther with thier funny antics and games. one cannot forget also as he played a critical role in the movie Broly: second coming when goten, trunks and videl fought of broly until gohan arrived at the scene.all i can say that as a dbz fan, when they start the new GT series on toon nick this upcoming january, i hope to see goten older, but still going strong.70.242.139.120 19:19, December 26, 2011 (UTC) the censoring of the blood also in my opinion is a waste of time. its a fighting show for gods sake!

If you were to ask me .. gt had it's mistakes but the ending actually left a huge opening for someone to make the next series : Hero's legacy ... now yes it's already thatt one special but i'd be interested in seeing how goku jr trains and vegeta jr as well ..how pan teaches .. what parts capsule corp has in the series ... and most importantly whats going to happen is goku jr going to wish pan younge , will goku jr teach his friend to fly like gohan did with videl .. and what part will goku play ... will he teach him to become super saiyan 3 or even 4 and will we see a 5 maybe... and will a piccolo return .. goku did make a promise.... well my thoughts here on a new series whatever happens happens for a reason

WOW

if you don't like the changes watch the original... its not that hard. I was excited to hear they are revising it but if it cuts out what you liked about dragonball Z go watch dragonball Z

Soundtrack

Does anyone know where I could get a legal copy of the soundtrack for this series? I've looked it up on Itunes but all I can find is some different music by Bruce Faulconer.Bigwill817 02:26, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

you could listen to it on youtube! 03:21, February 24, 2011 (UTC)WaterKirby1994

Um... FYI, Kai's BGM who was done by Kenji Yamamoto was busted off because of piracy issues. So Shunsuke Kikuchi's score was replaced due to this problem. Goku ssj4 kamehamehaSPVII Logo NewSilverPlaqueVII;talk contrib SPVII Logo NewVlcsnap-2009-12-24-23h25m18s11308:05, March 13, 2011 (UTC)

I was glad this happened... in a sense... because I absolutely hate most of the new scores and am glad that they are keeping the original score. I strongly feel Shunsuke Kikuchi is the best composer out of all the bunch; I felt that the techno and rock music didn't suit Dragon Ball at all... and found the newer scores to be rather bland... I prefer the orchestral and climactic music to match the suspense and the imagery rather than some synthesized junk. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 00:33, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Is the http://dragonballzkai.com/ link broken?

I mean it seems to be some type of logistiks compeny...

It links to Navarre Corporation, and FUNimation is a Navarre Corparation Company. Navarre Corparation seems to have end this website. Jeangabin666 17:34, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

a question

anyone knows from that episode changed the original music for the Dragon Ball Z on the TV version (Nicktoons, Toonzai, etc.) of Dragon Ball Z Kai?--BlackHAWX7 01:40, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

I LOVE DRAGON BALL Z , DRAGON BALL Z KAI AND GT . WHAT GONA HAPPEN NEXT I REALLY WANT DBZ BACK I AM SURE THAT OTHER MILLIONS OF PEOPLE LOVE IT TOO

didn't Dragon Ball Kai (or Z Kai) still continued to Majin Buu Saga???

Is it possible that Dragon Ball Kai (or Z Kai) continues to Majin Buu Saga or did it ended on the Cell Saga???

Kai was ended with the Cell Games Saga, although they may make a 3rd Season which will contain the Majin Buu Saga! WaterKirby1994 18:08, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Images

Yeah, dude that's the first thing i thought when i joined this wikia! If all the pictures are replaced until the Cell Saga This site is very nice it holds all the info about dbz but if all of the images are replaced this site will be more of this time of 2011 instead of 1992 it will be more with this age.

Movies

Are the movies from DBZ Like Garlic Jr and Lord Slug going to be in Kai-style?

SaiyanElite 18:42, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Most likeley not as Dragon Ball Z Kai's main difference to Dragon Ball Z besiides the HD is they cut out most of the filler non manga scenes but the Dragon Ball Z films were all filler so there would be nothing to change but the quality and voice cast.

SEASONS

IS THIRE GOING TO BE DRAGON BALL Z KAI SEASON 10 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE

Most likeley not as Dragon Ball Z Kai in the japanese version is being replaced after Cell Saga and the last episode to be aired is 97 and they said 98 episodes so unless there putting it on different channels and extending the episode list no.

Name of Page

Someone keeps changing "Dragon Ball Kai" to "Dragon Ball Z Kai". The logo of Dragon Ball Kai doesn't have a "Z" in it, therefore it's called "Dragon Ball Kai", not "Z Kai". Also, at the end of every episode, Goku says "next time on Dragon Ball Kai (not 'Z Kai')" so it should be clear that it's NOT called "Z Kai". It can't be "Z" and "Kai" at the same time, even though Dragon Ball Kai is a remake of Dragon Ball Z.

Actually it is Dragon Ball Z Kai for the North American release. The reason for having the Z in the title is most likely to avoid confusion. WaterKirby1994 00:51, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

NICKTOONS MESSED UP

i think that nicktoonsnetwork messed up when they started airing the dbz movies, like in movies fusion reborn and wrath of the dragon because goku goes ss3 in them and yet they havent aired goku even becoming a ss3 in dbzkai, and also in fusion reborn goku mentions majin buu which again hasnt been mentioned on dbzkai. also they messed up by airing broly the legendary super saiyan because gohan is a ss in it and yet it hasnt shown in dbzkai that he ever becomes one. also it shows him grown up in the return of broly and even shows goten, yet they havent aired gohan even becoming a ss yet. nicktoons airing the movies are good in all, but it isnt lettin any suprise occur for the viewers who have no idea what will happen.

DBZ Kai Music: What Will Happen?

I was angry when it turned out Kai's composer plagerized other music. As a result, the Kai music has been replaced with the old score. I really dislike the old score. This is only my opinion, but I think the old score is boring, lacks suspense, has no depth, sounds just plain silly from time to time, and doesn't suit the show in this day and age, espesially for the 'updated' DBZ Kai. What will happen?! If they keep the old score, will they at least keep the new character themes from Kai, like The Lone Warrior, Only A Chilling Elegy, ect.? As far as I know, they weren't written by the same guy, so they might keep them, right? I LOVE those themes, and I could easily forgive them using the old score if they keep the new character themes. But will they keep them? I need to know now so that I don't get false hope before I buy the next volume. Also, how will this effect Funimation's decisions in the future? Will Funimation hire a new composer like when they hired Bruce Falcouner to replace the old score for America? If so, would they rehire Bruce or would they hire someone else? I just need some clarification because I really do not like DBZ's origional score and want to know if that's what we're really stuck with for the rest of DBZ Kai.166.181.2.38 03:27, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

I myself feel the complete opposite about this. I absolutely hate most of the new scores and am glad that they are keeping the original score. I strongly feel Shunsuke Kikuchi is the best composer out of all the bunch; I felt that the techno and rock music didn't suit Dragon Ball at all... I prefer the orchestral and climactic music to match the suspense and the imagery rather than some synthesized junk. - Zarbon by raykugen-d2ygchz PrinceZarbon talk contribZarbon ava3 00:30, October 12, 2011 (UTC)
How can you say that? The entire audio of the original Dragon Ball Z sounds like its frozen in time in the '70s, despite the fact that Dragon Ball Z was made in the '90s. Shunsuke Kikuchi wrote the music for the original Kamen Rider back in 1972 and his style has been frozen in time since then. The heavy hard rock music is much easier to associate with ripped, muscular characters clashing their massive powers together. Is this thread even appropriate for an article talk page? shouldn't it be on a forum page? 74.192.44.236 21:08, February 29, 2012 (UTC)

Dragon Ball Kai Music Replacement

I cannot believe they changed the music for Dragon Ball Z Kai. I understand some people like the original japanese dragon ball z music score for it, but thats for DRAGON BALL Z. Basically, they ruined Dragon Ball Z Kai. The Kenji Yamamoto score of the music made Dragon Ball Z Kai what Dragon Ball Z Kai what it is. I wish FUNimation would put the Yamamoto music back up. Its Dragon Ball Z Kai for crying out loud and it started with Yamamotos music, and I honestly think they should end Dragon Ball Z Kai with it. AT LEAST end it with Yamamoto music, then they may replace and whatever they want. Dragon Ball Z should air again in the Japanese Score. Why?-> Because I have some of the Dragon Ball Z DVDS and when I watch them, I think to myself: Now this is where the music should remain. Dragon Ball Z Kai WAS SOOOO AMAZING with the Yamamoto music, but it went downhill. I do not care if Dragon Ball Z Kai ends on the Cell Saga, because if they want to air Dragon Ball Z again, there you go. They should just change Dragon Ball Z Kai back to just plain Z in this case. But the truth I think and I am sure alot of others agree like my brother and all, Dragon Ball Z Kai has been ruined. Dragon Ball Z should come back. I mean, remember: Braveheart Challenges The Strong? And the other great ones: A Might Foe; A Wasteland Of Tension; Destiny; Requim To Those Who Fall/Fail < - Speaking of that, GET THIS: When a sad moment is on like when Frieza defeats** Vegeta, and he's telling Goku not to give up and starts crying, with the new music, I laughed really really hard, the new music sounds terrible compared to the Yamamoto soundtracks for those moments. I either think Yamamoto's music should come back once again, OR FUNimation should talk to the people Yamamoto copied or whatever, and make some sort of deal, and maybe even combine the music of Dragon Ball Z Japanese Soundtracks along with Yamamotos Score Of Dragon Ball Z Kai. Whoever reads this entire thing, may I please have a list or something of who Yamamoto copied so I may see/hear the similarities. Thank You (: I had a pleasure telling my opinion!76.118.18.33 22:28, November 17, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, im from the uk and watched DBZ as a kid and would love to own DragonBallZ Kai on DVD/Blu-Ray but everywhere i looked only have the NTSC copies, does anyone know if they made PAL copies or silly question do the NTSC ones work on an english playstation? (think i already know the answer to that one)

any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks :)

Dragon Ball Z Kai is not bad

I have wstched pretty much every episode od DBZK, and IT IS NOT BAD! I actually think its almost better than DBZ

here are the good things:

1.It is closer to the manga so no filler like Dragon Ball Z (Ex: no Garlic Jr. Saga)

2.Dragon Ball Z Kai has very good picture and is in HD

3. It has the original DBZ soundtrack with some good added music

4.AND also for all of you who complain that there is no blood or that since Vegeta and other characters dont curse they dont feel right, U HAVE ONLY WATCHED THE NICKTOONS OR TOONZAI VERSION. I have DBZK part 3 and 4 together in Uncut version and it has blood and characters curse and everything like in DBZ

so you can now see that Dragon Ball Z Kai is not bad and if you actually watch it more (its better in Uncut version. but NEVER WATCH THE TOONZAI VERSION!) you will see (like me) THAT IT IS BETTER THAN GTEmperorPeelaugh575TalkContribGuide0w 16:36, March 17, 2012 (UTC)EmperorPeelaugh575

Original Dragon Ball Z music not just "recycled"

Has anyone besides me noticed that the re-used Dragon Ball Z music clearly has a lot more fidelity than it orginally did? You wouldn't get that just from using the original recordings. 74.192.44.236 17:34, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

Japanese section with new voices (Just like FUnimation section)

There might as well be a list of the characters with new voices replacing the old voice actors in the Japanese dub too. I know there are not as many replacements as FUNimation, but it may seem kinda biased without them in, and there is some interesting trivia behind it, such as Android 16's original voice actor taking over the role as Tien.

Hey, just to post this here ([1]). I don't know if it's true or not, but I'm posting it anyway. I'll let you guys be the judge of the validity of this link. TomNamikaze (talk) 18:03, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

GT Kai?

I know early to say this yet, but I wonder if there will be new saga of kai like gt? And if GT Kai would be, then is there any real new series after gt kai arc? Clock God (talk) 17:14, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

There is nothing they can do to GT as it is already filler free. TonyBest100 (talk) 18:42, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

GT itself is filler, since it is not material from the manga. The point of Kai was taking out the excessive material added to the scenes so the original DBZ advanced slower, so the manga could get ahead. TomNamikaze (talk) 13:11, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your info, but I hope Akira would create a real new series after Kai and new movie. Clock God (talk) 17:14, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

DBZ Kai Cell saga confirmed to be airing in the UK.

I would have added this to the DBZ Kai article itself, but it is protected, so I cannot do so. Earlier today, Kix (the channel broadcasting Kai in the UK) confirmed that seasons 3 and 4 (i.e. the Future Trunks - Cell sagas) will be airing in the UK from the 22nd of July.
