I'll try to get it tomorrow, the link I uploaded with the pic in high res is broken so I've gotta be patient too.

That's what the casual buyer normally say and doesn't care about how the design is, but I do because I'm planning on putting all the Kai Parts the same way I have as the Dragon Boxes Z.

I honestly hope this cover is a WIP/fan-art.

Yes, he is. It's quite clearly the Super Saiyan hair, it's just colored darkly, perhaps to make it look "spectral" or something.
No, he is NOT. Look at his eyes, which are drawn in the open way. The hair is darkly-colored (not to make it look spectral or something) and it's just blowing back like his clothes because of the impact wave of the Kamehameha.

Goku looks better with his black hair than yellow (Super Saiyan) hopefully FUNimation will make the change before the pre-order/shipping commences.

By the way, I know it's a crappy edit. :P

Innagadadavida, here you go.

Its resolution is 6496x4043 (Father-Son Kamehame-Ha + All Dragon Ball Kai Members), and for the size, well, it's 19.2 Megabytes. This is a scan from the original Japanese Dragon Ball Kai which I've found.

The teaser for Dragon Ball Z Kai: Part Eight looks really good, can't wait to own it! :D

I'd like to see "What if TFS wrote the script for Kai?" as being part of the extras. Given the gold that TFS came out with, it would be interesting to see Funi's take on it.

Well, isn't DBZ Abridged basically what would happen if Team Four Star wrote the script for DBZ\DBZK?

Nnnot really. If we wrote the script for either of those, we'd do our best to follow the original/manga. XD

But, no, I get what you mean. ;3

If you live in US (or other specific zones) then you're in luck becayse Wal-Mart's selling DBZKP8 pre-orders for $19.86

I assume third party sellers at Amazon UK will sell DBZKP8BD for £14 + shipping like they did with DBZKP7BD.

What the hell Amazon, you used to beat your rivals with lower prices than theirs. :?

The forums are finally back! I've been waiting to let you all know that Amazon has Part 8 on Blu-ray for only $17.99. To qualify for free shipping, I also placed an order for the upcoming FMA Brotherhood OVA Collection, which is a Blu-ray+DVD and going for a low price of $12.99. Great deals.

It seems we'll also be getting a four-part interview with this release. I wonder if it's a new one with Ayres in it, or the one we haven't gotten yet from before...

Sounds to me like it's just the same one that's already up on youtube that Sabat and Schemmel did when Kai first started. Nice to have, but it would've been nice it they could have done some kind of big round table discussion with them and a few more va's about their experiences dubbing the series after finishing it. Oh well, it's still nice to have on disc.

That's decent content, but it's nothing new really, I would've preferred a new interview with Dameon, Colleen, Morgan and Vic (+ Chris too).

Btw, DBZK's P7's Episode 78 ending was intense!

I have a feeling that Funimation is simply going to do what they did with Part 7's opening for Part 8.

Dammit Sabat, if you can sing the ending to School Rumble why can't you sing Dragon Soul?! (/humor)

But ultimately I have to ask myself "What is the true meaning of being perfect?" and the answer I came up with was nothing. Not one thing. The truth of the matter is I despise perfection! If something is truly perfect, that's IT! The bottom line becomes there is no room for imagination! No space for intelligence or ability or improvement! Do you understand? To men of science like us, perfection is a dead end, a condition of hopelessness. Always strive to be better than anything that came before you but not perfect! Scientist's agonize over the attempt to achieve perfection! That's the kind of creatures we are! We take joy in trying to exceed our grasp, in trying to reach for something that in the end, we have to admit may in fact be unreachable!"

Part 7 took +/ six months but even though we're not far from the 5th June it sure feels a long wait even more than Part 7's.

If FUNimation then decides to release Dragon Ball Z Kai (again) with the original Japanese cards, meh, I won't be bothered to purchase as owning Parts 1-8 is enough for me (as for DBZ I surely prefer it with the Japanese cards - Thanks FUNi for the Dragon Boxes).

From Dragon Box Z Vol. 1 trailer with Z Kai-ish feeling:

"This is the definitive Dragon Ball Z Kai experience"
"A must have for Z Kai fans"
"Each Dragon Ball Z Kai box has over 40 uncut episodes"

Additional:
"Featuring the original Japanese cards"
"With all the original Dragon Ball Z Kai music" (in other words, replacement music)

I guess they couldn't say "restored frame by frame" because this has already been remastered (Remaster the remastered? lol). :lol:

Darn, just a interview with Sabat and Schemmel? Well I guess it's better than nothing.
