The funnier part is that an android refers to anything that looks like a man. For the other gender we have the word gynoid. If anyones cares anymore...

So no Buu saga after all?

That's right, unfortunately.

I'm going to be as objective as possible here and give it a very simple comparison to the original

Visuals. They are the same and more resolution or a few lines here and there are not enough to deem it better.

Sound. More variety thus better.

Story. They took out many bad scenes but also many character coloring scenes. They also left out 1/4th of the story so it is worse.

Characters. Without those boring but needed to colorize scenes, they feel drier. So I say they are worse.

Value. Zero. It is not a remake and it is appealing to the original's fame.

Enjoyment. Better variety in music but less story and colorful characters. One step forward and two backwards. Thus worse than Z.

I keep thinking that, then I go back and watch Z and realize how painfully slow it is. Seriously, they spend an entire episode drawing lots in the Buu saga. I don't care how dramatic the music is, it's simply not that big of a deal. They really need to recut it

Z still has value if you want to go back and watch some vintage animation, though I think Kai deserves credit for the choices the directors made.

Kai is awesome, original Z was slow as hell and fillers sucked

Easily. I'd love to see the Buu saga get the Kai treatment, though it's not going to happen now, and i'm not going to let that effect my overall opinion on what we have seen in Kai.

Well it affected my opinion a lot. Less story, less colorful characters, not only the exact same elements but also less than before.

What did you think a recut was? Before watching this anyone should have known it was going to have less overall video by definition.

If one wants to see more, there are many Dragonball movies, specials, video games, and books that flesh out the material. And the list of that keeps growing.

Less video and less story is not the same thing

Well they stuck to the manga, which is a solid story. You may not agree with that, but I don't think you're in the majority.

^ The manga has the Buu saga too and they didn't stick to that. Don't try to excuse them; they most likely couldn't cut enough material to fit everything in just a 100 episodes and they had no money to go on.

Buu is a shame, yeah, but otherwise it's all manga and no filler and not zetta slow (^^) .. that's awesome


it's called adaptation distillation or something ^^

Cut any more and you'd be pulling the "bad adaptation" card on the show already.

Or the manga fans would.

You act as if they don't want to animate the Buu saga. Kai was basically canceled in favour of a new JUMP adaptation taking over it's time slot.

And here I thought it was because they said "100 episodes". And they stopped at not even at 98; thus incomplete XD

I'm currently at episode 15. It's amazing how different the series feels this early on. I can't wait to watch the rest of it too, and hope they remaster the Buu saga. GT can go die a fiery death though.

No. That was always a rumour and never confirmed.

So it was just darn luck it stopped at around the same number? And it was also a rumor it would cover all the Z show?
