This might turn out good.
Gonna keep an eye out for it, just to see how it'll turn out.

This could get interesting.  From what I've heard, they'll be sticking more closely to the manga and cutting out all the filler that famously made DBZ so long-winded.

Though never a huge fan of DBZ, I appreciated some of the sagas, namely Cell, so I definitely saw good in the series. A remake with all the filler gone could be really, really good. I'll definitely be checking this one out.

Apparently, the series is called Dragon Ball Kai.

OP
Dragon Ball Kai Opening HD

ED
Dragon Ball Kai Ending HD

Looks good. Hopefully this makes up for the epicmegafailover9000 that the live-action movie is. :lol:

They've touched up the original animation and put it into HD, along with cutting out the filler to make the series much shorter.  That's pretty much what it boils down to.

Oh, and here's the best subbed version that's been released so far that I've watched, and it's also in 720p:

Kame using makankosappo !?  not Kamehameha !? LOL

I'm disappointed really.  It'll be nice to have a version without the filler, and the picture does look more vibrant than the original, but that's about it.  It's new HD format is nothing more than cropping the picture at the top and bottom to be 16:9.  So instead of gaining more width, you're really just losing height.








It kinda got my hopes up when I saw the Opening/Ending, cause boy would it be awesome if the entire series had been redrawn to look like that. e_e
