Every Anime lover knows about the spectacular Shonen battle series Dragon Ball Z, that took the whole world by storm all the way back from its start in the 80s. In 2009 it was about time for Dragon Ball Z’s 20th Anniversary and to commemorate this amazing anime series a revised and remastered HD version of the original Manga was released on Fuji TV.
Dragon Ball Z Kai is a modified version of the original anime series with low to none filler episodes with sped up and redrawn animations, re-recorded sounds, and full-on action-packed fights. It has also hugely reduced the blood and gore and added more censorship to make it more suitable for the younger generation. Although, being a revision of the original series, Dragon Ball Z Kai has quite some changes of its own.
Unlike the original anime series Dragon Ball Z Kai is truer to the original Manga storyline and disregards any fluffs included in the Dragon Ball Z which in terms lacks the background and personality building of the characters and other scenes that are not related to the Manga storyline but somewhat useful for story development.
However, Dragon Ball Z Kai includes all the major arcs after a setback that stopped the production at Cell Saga arc, but currently, it includes both Majin Buu and Evil Buu arcs which completes the original Manga Storyline.
Our Verdict on Dragon Ball Z Kai
Dragon Ball Z Kai is without any doubt an amazing anime series but if you have already watched the original anime series, it might seem to miss out on a few details that go on to make more sense out the story but if you haven’t watched it already than I’d really recommend you go for Dragon Ball Z kai.
