Manga UK has detailed their plan to release the Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai — known internationally as “Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters” — in three “Part” sets over the course of October, November, and December 2018.
Yes… the long-awaited, almost universally-loved, and highly-requested Dragon Ball Kai: The Final Chapters is indeed coming to the UK! Releasing in three parts, you’ll be able to get your hands on the first set from October and complete your collection in time for Christmas!
- “Part One” (episodes 99-121) is due out 15 October 2018
- “Part Two” (episodes 122-144) is due out 12 November 2018
- “Part Three” (episodes 145-167) is due out 10 December 2018
Meanwhile, the fifth Dragon Ball Super television series set is due out from the company 08 October 2018.
Manga UK’s home releases mirror and trail behind FUNimation’s North American products. FUNimation’s release of “The Final Chapters” wrapped up back in June; the fifth Dragon Ball Super set is also due out in October.
The Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai was initially conceived as an international-only product, but following the cancellation of the Toriko television series, Toei and Fuji TV used the available timeslot — which itself previously belonged to the original 2009-2011 run of Dragon Ball Kai — for the Boo arc. What aired on Japanese television was actually a further-condensed edit of what was being produced for the international market; this international edition would later come to be known as “The Final Chapters”.
