IIRC, the dub for Final Act has been done for a while it's just that Viz is dumb was waiting for Neon Alley to premiere it.

What, you were invited home to Mr. Drummond? Lol, just kidding, I guess you asked him at a convention? Do you video-tape it?

There's a thread about it in the "General" section of the forum, but basically, Attitudefan coincidentally met Drummond at his gym. They talked briefly and, when asked about the Kai dub, Drummond gave an evasive, awkward, and unclear answer as to whether or not a Kai dub was happening. It would be one thing if he flat-out said "no," but his uneasiness, combined with his vague mention of "re-doing some lines," led Attitudefan to believe that an Ocean Kai dub is indeed happening. I interpreted it that way too...my guess is that Drummond didn't want to lie and say it wasn't happening, but also didn't want to break his NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).

I don't blame him. It varies as to how much trouble somebody gets in for breaking an NDA. The best-case scenario is that they get a stern phone call, but the worst-case scenario is that they get fired and sued. For that reason, I'm still shocked that Scott McNeil used the phrase, "Screw the NDA," before talking about how he was working on Kai. I would NEVER do that!

But let's look at all the pieces here...we've now heard multiple actors say that it's happening, and the same countries that got the Ocean/Westwood dub of DBZ on TV are the only primarily English-speaking countries who haven't gotten a dub of Kai on TV yet. I have no doubt that we will see this dub eventually.

EDIT: Actually, just thought of something fun to pass the time...you'll notice that so far, this thread is 78 pages long, and we still haven't seen the dub. Shall we start making predictions on how many pages long this thread will be by the time the Ocean dub of Kai airs? I'm predicting 112.

There is also the fact that Kix! have seen a screener for DBZ Kai and of July this year still haven't decided whether or not they will get the show. They watched the screener January of last year. I think they are waiting for Ocean Kai to be finished before they make that decision. Also Manga Entertainment showed that the had interest in releasing Kai but Toei gave them the orange bricks. Funnily enough these sets will be finished in September 2013 so there seems to some incentive to releasing them so close together.

The dubbing for Ocean Kai only started summer 2011 so I still consider the dub to be on time. Scott McNeil said they were up to Jeice last Winter so that means they got about a third of the series done in six months. Going by that you would expect the recording process to be finished at the end of this year or early next year. There is no doubt that this dub is taking a long time and due to some similarities with the English dub of Final Act I wouldn't be surprised if VIZ/KAZE ended up being the production company.

No, it's not. This thread started in 2010 and it's almost 2013, they had almost 3 years to dub 98 episodes. I really don't think this is coming out.
Completely different company and situation, but I saw a video of Trunks' FUNimation actor, Eric Vale, at a convention where he was asked what his favorite project was. He answered "Desert Punk", and mentions that they spent a year working on that show, which is 24 episodes long. Kai is four times that amount, but again, this a supposed Ocean project so who knows what the time-tables are.

London MCM Expo is on this weekend and Manga Entertainment are going to announce some new acquisitions for 2013. If what Attitudefan means Ocean Kai is coming soon as in early 2013, you would nearly expect an announcement this year. I wouldn't get my hopes up but I do think that if this thing is getting a DVD/Bluray release then Manga UK would be the most likely ones to distribute it. What do you guys think?

Okay, so, lots of evidence is racked up suggesting that this Ocean dub of Kai will indeed happen. That's not really a mystery anymore. However, I did want to pass along an opportunity for interested Kanzenshuuers to get some more info. Apparently Scott McNeil will be a guest at Youmacon 2012, so anybody who's in the area and wants to ask how far along into the dub they are......there's your opportunity.

I was at London MCM Expo this weekend. If any of you were at the Manga UK live podcast, you may have seen me wearing a rather large blue Tony Tony Chopper hat. Anyway, I asked about Dragon Ball Kai being released in the UK at the panel, and was told to "watch this space", and that we would probably have to wait until all the Orange Bricks had been released to see anything. Just something I managed to unearth while I was there, probably means nothing. I can't remember the exact response, but when the podcast is up on the site you'll be able to hear it.

Thanks for that NessMudkip. This doesn't mean nothing, we now know that Manga are very much interested in releasing Kai. Looks like there is a better chance of getting a DVD/Bluray release of Ocean Kai. But I think you are right in saying that we won't see it releasing before the last orange brick.

The podcast is out now, and if you skip to around 11:58, you can hear my question and the answer.

Interesting stuff. More announcements about Dragon Ball Kai from Toei soon? Maybe we don't have to wait as long for an announcement as we think or maybe it will just be Toei announcing the new Licensee aka the company producing Ocean Kai. It looks like Manga have to get the orange bricks out first before making an announcement on distribution rights.

Any news from Toei would probably be the Boo Arc, no? If they were going to release it re-dubbed, wouldn't that be an announcement by Ocean? Since the Orange Bricks are the FUNimation dub, it doesn't really seem likely that Kai would be handled differently.

Ocean Productions are only the dubbing company so they will not be making any announcements. The rights holders in the UK would be the ones to announce anything. However Toei were the ones that first announced officially that Manga Entertainment had acquired the rights to the orange bricks via their website, so maybe something similar will happen.

Well... with recent news it seems we found out what that "announcement from Toei" was! I reckon MangaUK were holding off until the Buu saga announcement to announce anything related to Kai.
