Appule & Nail Also Re-Cast in “Dragon Ball Kai”

Let the shenanigans continue! Toei Animation’s official Dragon Ball Kai website has updated with the new voice of Nail. Taiten Kusunoki will be taking over the role of Nail in Dragon Ball Kai, replacing Katsuji Mori who had originally voiced the character in Dragon Ball Z. He also provided the voice of the popular action star Panput in Dragon Ball during the 22nd Tenka’ichi Budōkai. Again, we are not sure why Katsuji Mori is being replaced, as he is still very active as a voice actor — he even runs his own talent agency, Office Mori.

Finally, probably the biggest blow to all of Dragon Ball fandom… the original voice of Appule has been replaced. However, it is a real slap in the face because his recasting never got an official announcement! As you may know, Appule recently appeared in Dragon Ball Kai episode 023. Unfortunately, according to the credits, Yūji Machi has been replaced by Takahiro Yoshimizu. For anyone familiar with One Piece, Yoshimizu provided the voice of Paulie, one of the five Dock One foremen of Water 7. Needless to say, he has some pretty big shoes to fill.
