We have been working on it, and you have been waiting on it, so it is time to finally answer the big question:
What the Hell just happened to Dragon Ball Kai…?
Heath and Corey joined us in-house this week to attempt to answer that big question. By diving into publicly-available corporate presentations and financial reports, we can paint a crystal-clear picture of why the series was “refreshed” at the time it was, what their plan was for it all along, if they even partially saw that plan come to fruition, and what we might be able to expect from the franchise in the future.
Long story short, it was a meticulously-calculated grab at getting new/younger fans (to lay a groundwork for another popularity wave even more years down the road) by a company that is attempting to react to changing market conditions as rapidly as possible, but a company that is also not afraid to cut their losses while they can and then go out to seek opportunities with a higher profit-margin.
