not having seen anything of DBZ / DB Kai yet, I was hoping that they completely filtered out the filler parts in Kai, but that's not the case? Has there been a lot of filler material left in there? to bad though.

"offtopic": What about Dragon Ball? Are there a lot of fillers in there? I'm asking this as I'm currently watching DB and have seen around 30 eps up untill now.

There has been filler material left in but it's not a lot, to give you an idea Kai is currently at episode 16, the content of episode 16 coincide with the content seen in episode 34 and 35 of Dragonball Z so basically nearly 20 episodes worth of filler material has been cut out so far

And yes Dragon ball had fillers there are usually a small bunch of episodic fillers between every major arc for example.

I'm not exactly sure what's filler or not but, I'm guessing the filler that remained from DBZ to Kai was the Gregory training and Nappa chasing the car? But it's pretty negligible, and I'm really looking forward to how fast the Namek saga is going to go (but no ep this week ), so much filler to be cut out , though once again I'm not sure which is filler or not

^ Could be just me, but that doesn't tell you anything about current episode release, at least for Dragon Ball Kai.

But like I said in my previous post, there was no episode (17) this week.

This break sucks. Was looking forward to wrapping up the Saiyan saga. Oh well, just three more days now.

Ah, another good episode, very fast paced compared to the original. Nice choice of music for the sad scenes.

They're already leaving Earth by next episode. I was a little concerned they might stick too long. Can't wait to see some hot stuff!

Woah plenty of new tracks (and an insert song) in this episode, and Shiroth is right they'll be landing on Namek in episode 19.

Tell me about it. I just watched episode 17 and even now the pacing is quite surprising for me. I still remember how long it took for them to take off 0_0

Well I can't wait for the fights on Namek to begin because those were some of the most exciting fights I can remember at that time. I remember enjoying how much Goku just completely overpowered all of the Ginyu Force

Indeed. Apart from the big Frieza fight, i can't wait to see Goku vs Ginyu, one of my favorite fights from the series. Goku's powering up scene is just to epic for words.

I suppose this isn't a good time to tell you I'm not really a fan of the Ginyu fight, it always felt like stalling for the really big fight that's about to come.

It was a good fight that shown us how much Goku has increased in power since his fight with Vegeta, especially compared to Vegeta's level at that time. Seeing how much trouble he had with the Ginyu force, compared to Goku.

Well you're just expressing your opinion Nothing wrong with that, I'm sure that not everyone liked the Ginyu fights but I like to see it in a different light. For example, we see how much Krillin, Gohan and Vegeta are struggling to defeat just 1 of the Ginyu force members and how grim things looked at the moment. Then the arrival of Goku just completely overturns the tide. It's something to give us a break and set things up for the big fight.

At that moment I thought to myself, "I can't believe Goku got this strong, I'm sure he'll be able to take even Freiza" but then we learn about his transformations It's just stuff like this that really pulled me into this series.

Even without transformations, without the Zenkai he got after the Ginyu battle Frieza would've ripped him apart. Ah, Zenkais... the deus ex machina for Namek.
