Trivia

The series is edited to follow Akira Toriyama's manga more closely than the previous adaptation of the latter half of his manga (Dragon Ball Z.) In other words, the good majority of filler segments are being removed. Because of this, the series is slated to run 100 episodes, as opposed to Z's 291. See more »

Goofs

Lunch appears in the opening/closing credits despite not appearing in the latter half of Toriyama's manga at all (though it's possible she'll appear in flashback scenes). See more »

Crazy Credits

All-new opening and closing credits sequences were animated for the series, instead of the series just reusing the ones from Z. See more »

The best version of DBZ
23 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Years ago before dragon ball z Kai I watched a bit of Some Poorly dubbed Dragon ball and Dragon Ball GT and the laughable ocean dub version of DBZ (with Some of the worst Acting known to man)

I think dragon ball z Kai is the best of the series Much better than the 1999 Funimation dub

The Voice Acting was a bit mediocre compare to the Japanese voice acting

Gohan's new Voice is cute but childish (a lot of funimation dub fans hate Gohan's new Voice but i like it)

Even Freiza's new Voice was epic and much better than his Funimation dub Voice

The musics from DBZKai are great

and the animation was superior to dragon ball z

The theme song(dragon soul) was great

this series is not as bad as what the Funimation 1999 Fans say

If you miss dragon ball z than dragon ball z Kai is all you need Because it was the best version of DBZ

For those who never watched the funimation version of DBZ as a kid: 10/10 For those who watched the funimation version of DBZ as a kid: 1/10
