Okay, I'm bored and have been kinda been on an Akira Toriyama obsession for the awhile now and I've been thinking about purchasing Dragon Ball Z Kai. I have seen some of it and am, lets say, pleased enough with it to consider purchasing it. Now my only problem is that I found out that Kai will end at the end of the Cell saga, because the time slot in Japan is going to be filled by the upcoming Toriko anime.

Now I am really not sure if I want to commit to this anime if it doesn't have the Boo saga in it seeing as how it is one of my favorite arcs and it is also the true end to the series. But there is always the possibility that at a later time perhaps after the first season of Toriko, and possibly just at another time slot they will choose to finish the anime.

So I just need some opinions from you guys to help me make up my mind. XP

I'm not. I love those orange boxes. The reasons I'm not is mainly;

- The music switch
- No Buu Saga (Goku stays dead?! Heck naw!)
- No Goku's Ordeal (the driving episode)!


Those orange boxes have a marathon mode, and all of the glorious filler. While most is annoying, I always find Toriyama filler really entertaining and lighthearted.

Well I actually strongly dislike the original series because the the filler was waaaaay too over the top (the first episode I ever saw was about 5 minutes of dialog and the rest of the episode was Vegeta charging up to fight Kiwi, why I gave the series another shot after this I have no idea) though I admit there were a few moments of filler that I've enjoyed (usually for comedy reasons). Also is it just me or are a lot of the voices different in Kai? Because I remember the majority of the voices being unbearable, but maybe I've just grown up and learned to accept most of them.

My only real beef with Kai so far is that some of the voices are still pretty bad. The other thing is that (even though I know they will never change this and it upsets me greatly) I still have to hear their English names.

I kinda considered the possibility of buying kai and then just finishing up the series with the original series, but I don't know if I'm willing to wade through all the filler to get to the meat of the series. I mean is there a possibility that they will kai-itize the Boo saga? Or am I just wishful thinking?

I doubt it, especially after the show was under fire for plagerizing music, I don't think they will continue the show. Would have been nice though, because the kai worlds/boo saga episodes were amazing.

I can't see the Buu saga ever getting made myself.

I've only seen early episodes of Kai, but apparently the series is supposed to be pretty good in that the pacing doesn't feel as slow as its predecessor was. The fact that they didn't air the last episode because they didn't want to bump back the premiere of Toriko is a bit odd though.

And as forgotten water in a well might shake
At an explosion under morning

Or a crack run up a gable,
She began to speak.

Dogs in siege. Saurian relapses. Pismires."

Now I think the question is do I buy Kai and then finish up the series with the original anime or to just not bother all together. XD

If I had the money, I'd get both. Kai is straight forward action with no fillers like you mentioned. But like said earlier, there are sagas missing hence why I'd get both.
Mighta been a time when I loved her too but you take that away, you always been the one.

i hate the new music!

but my daughter loves the show, so i will get both.

I like the voices, and i think there not as good as DBZ, but it's no 4kids one piece.

i also don't mind the name much, is there a big difference?

If you have the money get it.

Watching it on the weekends with Yusei and his 'marry gay men' *covers face* I mean Yusei and team 5D nexus.

I have mixed feelings about Kai. I didn't enjoy the Boo saga as much besides the fact that they had Boo and Uub (*facepalms*) mainly because some of the stuff in the Boo saga they based on GT (omg) and had discontinuity from the Boo saga (really isn't Gohan suppose to be stronger than lvl 4 due to the kai's?) but that's me ^^; Voices I don't mind because I heard worse but the name changes are...meh.

If you enjoy it now go for it. Japan is having issues so they probably not going to make the Boo saga if they do. Keep that in mind too. It's hard work making animations and people get lazy.

^That's an idea, seeing as how no one ever knows what to get me for my birthday. XP

Also, does anyone know the difference between the Dragon Box and regular remastered release of DBZ? I'm just curious.
