“Dragon Ball Kai” Theme Song & Animation Updates
Published by 03 May 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

We knew that a new ending theme from “Team Dragon” (which comprises members from idol power-house AKB48) would be coming with Episode 55 of Kai, which was later revealed to be titled “Kokoro no Hane” (“Wings of the Heart”).

We will save the majority of our editorializing for the next podcast episode (and the impending CD single release and review, I am sure [though none has been announced as-of-yet]), but suffice it to say… the ending was pretty much what we all expected. Somewhat unexpected was the vast amount of new footage in the opening theme, “Dragon Soul”. While the first half of the opening remains the same as the first two versions, the second half is almost entirely brand-new; the song itself remains exactly the same. The animation showcases some of the new villains (though not showcasing Cell directly, other than hints of his tail), and focuses on Gohan with foreshadowing-esque shots quite often.
