C21Media reports a couple little updates from Latin America this week. Colombia’s CityTV is on a roll, having acquired all 291 episodes of the Dragon Ball Z TV series as well as the 98 episodes of its 20th anniversary “refreshed” edition, Dragon Ball Kai. Additionally, Ecuador’s Ecuavisa has renewed its license for the franchise, as well as obtained what the site describes as “20 telemovies based on the franchise” — if we had to guess, the twenty items are likely the three Dragon Ball movies, thirteen Dragon Ball Z movies, two Dragon Ball Z TV specials, the 10th anniversary movie, and the Dragon Ball GT TV special.
Dragon Ball Kai seems to have recently debuted on Ecuavisa back on 14 April 2012. The Dragon Ball Z TV series somewhat came under fire in Ecuador back in July 2009 when The Simpsons and other shows caught the attention of the government which was concerned by the impact of “programs and messages that promote violence, racial and gender discrimination.”
