Show Summary

The Earth's Greatest Warriors are back in Dragon Ball Kai, an HD Remaster and Recut to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of author Akira Toriyama's hit anime Dragon Ball Z. Using Dragon Ball Z's footage, the series has been remade in high definition and recut, removing most traces of filler for the sake of a faster pacing, sticking closer to the original manga work. Taking place five years after the events of the original Dragon Ball series, Kai covers the later stories of Son Goku, Earth's Greatest Warrior. Having finally settled down and made a family of his own, Goku seems to be adjusting well to the times of peace. However, the peace is short-lived as an intergalactic visitor claiming to be Goku's brother makes a crash landing to the planet. With the fate of entire galaxies at hand, Goku and the rest of the warriors must reunite, confronting progressively stronger foes in the continuous fight between good and evil. Opening Theme: "Dragon Soul" by Kenji Yamamoto (episodes 1-54) Opening Theme: "Yeah! Break! Care Break!" by Kenji Yamamoto (episodes 1-55) "Kororo No Hane" (Wings of Heart) by ABK48 (episodes 55-current)moreless

  • Dragon ball kai

    9.5
    Very good, they should finish it with the buu saga
  • The animations better but thats it

    4.0
    I had high hopes for this re-mastered/redone version. However it falls flat in a lot of areas compared to Z.

    1. Gohan's voice in this dub is terrible and to annoying to get used to.

    2. The Z music was a lot better than this orchestra music they decided to use in this one.

    3. The pacing is a bit fast. Sure you got rid of a lot of filler but by doing that there is now zero suspense and the overall feel of the show seems a bit rushed and lacking in emotion compared to Z in my opinion.

    Positives: Better animation and closer to the Manga but that's not saying much.moreless
  • A recut version of Dragon Ball Z with a very good English dub

    10
    When I first saw the English dub of Dragon Ball Z Kai (from the uncut home release of course) I was blown away by how good it really is. Some people would have to get used to the recasts but I actually like some of them, such as Gohan and Bulma's voices. And as for the returning voice actors, they just sound better than in the Z dub. Sean Schemmel's performance as Son Goku is just amazing in Kai. Gets the emotions and screams right and is probably one of the best voice work he's ever done. Chris Sabat's voices for Vegeta and Piccolo were also a huge improvement. They no longer sound rough sounding and more smooth and natural. Now I haven't seen the original Japanese version, but I would recommend the English dub to anyone. I know there are some people that don't like the recasts, but as said before, I actually like some of them. So if you want to see a great Dragon Ball dub by FUNimation, give Dragon Ball Z Kai a shot, but it's best to watch the uncut version on DVD or Blu-ray.moreless
  • A true DragonBal Z fan will love every dragonball series

    10
    I remember when I was watching TV on nicktoons and I saw the trailer for Dragonball Z Kai I was truly ecstatic since I had not seen Dragonball Z in a long time I love every fight more so the battle with Cell when Gohan got so pissed off he turned SSJ2 he even warned Cell that if he provoked him enough he would get more powerful then even Cell himself even when Cell nearly died by exploading himself Cell then seemed even stronger then SSJ2 Gohan due to Dr Gero extracting Saiyan cells thanks for Goku's help in otherworld Gohan unleashed his full power and literally destroyed Cell I can watch the whole Dragonball Z Kai series over againmoreless
