Toonami's Power Level Goes Over 9000!!! 'Dragonball Z Kai' Set To Arrive in the Fall!!

Rejoice old school fans of Toonami! Dragonball Z Kai is set to debut on the animation action block this fall.

Tonight, right before they aired DBZ: Cooler's Revenge (which ironically was the English dubbed version with the original Japanese score, not the added hard rock soundtrack that included songs from Drowning Pool, Disturbed, and others. So goodie goodie for that), Toonami released this bit of news on their Tumblr page: Dragonball Z IS RETURNING to the line-up. The move came when Toonami teased that fans would be rewarded if they get 10,000 likes on their Facebook page. Sure enough they did, and this was the result.

But i won't be in its previous incarnation. Instead, Dragonball Z Kai will premiere on the block sometime in the Fall (probably when Black Lagoon ends its first run, but that's this reporter's assumption. So take it with a grain of salt). As for what this version is, here's a quick summary for newbies who haven't heard of it. It's basically Dragonball Z with remastered picture, sound, and effect, with voice actors reprising their roles. The show is also massively cut down to just ninety-eight episodes. It covers the Saiyan Saga all the way to the Cell Saga (though the Buu Saga is currently airing in Japan. So it's a smart bet that'll end up here and probably debut on Toonami exclusively).  That in mind, all the extra padding Dragonball Z was notorious for is cut out (anything filler): namely the Frieza Saga, and there's no Garlic Jr Saga to be found here at all.

So rejoice DBZ and Toonami fans. Another old staple has returned. Now... only one more anime is truly needed to make things PERFECT. Come on Toonami it's time to SUIT UP just one more time:


Mission acccepted ToonamI? Or Outlaw Star coming back would be a good consolation prize.
