Will watch and eventually buy on blu-ray when it's dubbed. As much as I loved DBZ as a kid, last time I tried to watch it from start to finish, I stopped somewhere during the frieza saga. So much stalling. The one thing I really missed in Kai was Faulconer's soundtrack.


And I find Faulconer's soundtrack to be the worst thing combined with the filler and shit voice acting/lines... weird.

I mean, he wanted to finish Dragon Ball after the Emperor Pilaf Saga. He kept changing his mind. So no one can really say when it's "supposed" to end. :T
This.

Nice

DBZ is not DBZ without Buu saga


Not really. Toriyama was planning to finish the manga after the Cell saga. what's the point of Goku's sacrifice ? it would've been a great ending to the series if Majin Buu didn't happen, yeah MB saga ruined a great ending to the series.

but i still admire this saga cuz of the "Majin Vegeta arc" his character development was really good!
it's one of my favorite parts in the whole DB franchise, it went downhill afterwards.


The fusion thing was hilarious and Satan was actually useful in this saga.

It seems it was as I predicted.

Yuko will be reprising Videl in Kai, just like she did with Battle of Gods. Heck, she and Mayumi Tanaka are the ones that told (or teased, little fuzzy on the details) us about Kai in the first place.

Alright, so it appears I was wrong about Yuko Minaguchi. And Babidi's been recast, as well.

That is simply not true. Toriyama has never said such a thing.

There is possibility that Shino Kakinuma (wife of Toshio Furukawa, Naru Osaka in Sailor Moon) will replace Yuko Minaguchi as Videl, because Yuko isn't so much in seiyuu business anymore, and Shino was already Videl in Toriko x DBZ x One Piece special.

What are you guys talking about voices being different?

Aside from few seiyuu who were replaced because they passed away, all other original seiyuu stayed the same since 80s / 90s.

Pretty sure most people here are talking about the English voices

Feb 28, 2014 2:52 PM by Kaimon

So will this be replacing Toriko like its been rumored?

They better not take out buu killing people and all the violence and do vegito justice.


The first minute of the first episode has Frieza committing genocide and we see Cell blow up islands to lure out 18

I'm pretty sure we'll see the Buu saga at it's best.
