Masaharu Satō To Play Kame-Sen’nin In “Kai”
Published by 13 March 2009, 3:00 PM EDT

Toshio Furukawa (Piccolo) gives us more information regarding Dragon Ball Kai with another blog update from the other day. Masaharu Satō will be playing the role of Kame-Sen’nin, as opposed to what seemed (and what we would have guessed) to be the character’s formal replacement actor, Hiroshi Masuoka.

As a bit of background, Kame-Sen’nin’s original actor, Kōhei Miyauchi, passed away in 1995 just before the end of the Drtagon Ball Z TV series. While Masaharu Satō and Kinya Aikawa stepped in at various points to play small bits of dialogue for the character, the entirety of Dragon Ball GT (and many other spin-off items like video games) were performed by Hiroshi Masuoka.

Furukawa updated his blog with this information and the following picture, showcasing (left to right, back to front) Masaharu Satō (Kame-Sen’nin), Ryō Horikawa (Vegeta), Toshio Furukawa (Piccolo), Shigeru Chiba (Raditz), Jōji Yanami (Narration, Kaiō-sama), Mayumi Tanaka (Kuririn), and Masako Nozawa (Son Goku, etc.):
