Dragon Ball Kai Returns This Spring

According to the April issue of V Jump magazine, Dragon Ball Kai will be returning from its somewhat long hiatus in order to retell the Majin Buu arc, giving it that special touch of Kai goodness. The series will be taking over Toriko’s time slot at 9 on Fuji TV.

In case you’re wondering why Dragon Ball Kai is such a big deal – the series is a streamlined and polished version of the Dragon Ball Z anime series. The series features HD picture, sound, and special effects as well as a re-recorded voice track done by most of the original cast. Additionally, the content itself has been edited in order to improve the pacing and reduce fillers: i.e. Kai only needs 2 episodes to show a character charging his ki, whereas the original series took 7 episodes.

Dragon Ball Kai originally aired in 2009, in time for the series’ 20th anniversary, but ended its run in 2011 after the conclusion of the Cell Saga, with the final episode not being broadcast due to the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.
