Dragon Ball Z excellent, Dragon Ball Kai remastered?
2 January 2013 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Well, I am a very very fan of Dragon ball Z, really!! But when Dragon Ball Kai came to my country, And I see the video-quality, censorship, voice changes, I hated with all my soul.

No video-quality change (It's an anime of 80 and there is not a video quality remastered, very poor).

The worst cast voices in Latin America, a lot of censorship, the scenes pass very quick and do not understood nothing.

Well definitely Dragon Ball Kai is the worst of "Dragon Ball Series", is more worse than Dragon Ball GT (At less this last have a better video quality than Dragon Ball Z and a "new story").

Please, do not touch more Dragon Ball badly. For me Dragon Ball Kai doesn't exists anymore.
