Hopefully they removed some of the filler in the anime while they were retconning and remastering it.

I heard they've removed All unnecessary filler form Kai. That they're only leaving in the stuff that Akira Toriyama says is canon.

Nope. They still kept some of it in. A lot of the hardcore fans have been complaining about that. They haven't really changed all that much. The Japanese voices were re-recorded, but a lot of fans feel that they aren't as good as the original versions, since the actors sound like they're phoning it in sometimes. What little reanimated scenes are easy to point out because A) the old footage's "remastering" isn't all that and :huh: the new animation doesn't blend in very well in comparison. The fact that its in "high definition" hasn't made it look much better, either, since the only part where it's really noticable is in the new opening animation.

 

Most of what I've heard boils down to "you're better off watching the original version."

Thanks for the review, that's the first I've heard of any of that. I still want to check it out to form my own opinion but this way I wont get my hopes up.

Also, that trailer is not DBK at all.

 

At 27 seconds, we see goku at kaioken in the episode ''vegetas respect'' episode 280 (Although after kai it'll be like episode 7).

 

However, there is a twinkle in goku's left eye, you see it. Well, that's not actually in the manga and is completely 'non cannon'. That little twinkle is completely made up ! That's how I know that this isn't a kai trailer. You see that twinkle was not what Akira Toriyama originally had in mind and does not represent how he truly wanted the series to be shown.

 

NOW, when we do see it as Akira originally intended that little twinkle won't be there. O ye, and the image will be a bit brighter

That's my philosophy. If you wan't something close to the manga..........read the manga

Hmm, not quite what I think Landon meant...

Anyway that's why I think anime not based off of manga is typically better. There is less filler and you don't have people complaining about how something from the anime creates a discrepancy with the established cannon of the manga.

I really think it's sad how people care what's different from the manga to the anime. I feel people who care about whether something is 'canon' or not are the sort of people who wouldn't enjoy a fairground, simply because it's run by gypsies.

 

You should just watch and enjoy - not care about the slight differences.

 

Also, has anyone here seen Dragonball Kai ? It's horrendous. It looks stupid. Because it's so desperate to be 'cannon' it cuts half of an episode away. This may sound good to the people I previously mentioned but what you forget is that DBZ had a different animator every episode. So as a result you have scenes done by one artist and then another, which just looks crap.

 

And if people read the manga, they'd realise that the anime is far, far better. There is so much that's not in the manga that just works so well in the anime, especially from the fighting perspective (which is what EVERYONE watches DBZ for anyways).

 

For example -I'll just go from the cell vs vegeta part of the storyline

 

Vegeta vs cell - so bad compared to the anime version. Remember the fight underwater, when vegeta's burrowing underground - not in manga. Neither is the part when vegeta is ''caught by cell'' and elbows him in the gut whilst upside down - which is the best part of the fight. Neither is the part when cell fires a galick gun or when vegeta beams him in the back into a crater. The fight in the manga is 6 pages.

 

there's no super trunks vs cell before he spots 18 or there's no 18 trying to fight back.

 

When cell's perfect, there is no krillin and trunks hitting him without him even noticing - just krillin, which just isn't as good.

 

Also there is no krillin destructo disk which just evaporates of cells neck - another awesome moment that will be cut out as it ''isn't cannon''.

 

But the worst thing is calling it ''DBZ how Akira Toriyama originally intended''. First of all, if it was how Akira Toriyama originally intended, it would end at the fireza saga, but it won't so it's already wrong.

 

Secondly - has anyone read anything else buy Toriyama ? If you have you'd see he's just not the sort of person who cares if a fight goes on for an extra two episodes or if a kick is added in. You'd only have to read Necko Majin to see that. Hell, you'd only have to read his openings in any of his manga to see he's too lazy to care. And I'll bet you it was him who added these ''non-cannon'' scenes - as he dedicated almost all his time to the anime.

 

 

But this is fine, if people what to continually suck from the udders of the cash cow that DBZ has now become let them. I just hope they overcharge you for it.

I won't be watching DBZ Kai. I was all hyped for it but then I found out that Stephanie Nadolny won't be reprising her role as kid Gohan. I loved Kid Gohan and grew up with that voice. Anything else will just be... wrong.
