Sean teased it a while ago! He said he did something that burned him out but fans will appreciate, someone replied with SS3 for Buu Kai and he liked it.
There are a lot of things to anticipate in this dub, another being Vegeta's sacrifice, or well anything with Vegeta actually since Sabat was that bad in old Z dub.
I wouldn't say Sabat was bad during this saga in the original dub, but the scripts were.
He still hammed most of his line deliveries, and every single line had weird inflections. He didn't start getting decent until the Ultimate Uncut and Orange Brick redubbing (his Kid Buu and GT episodes were too gruff). Even then, he was still too flat, and his yelling was more like grunting.

Now, in Kai, he has much more range and much more natural line deliveries. His Vegeta is probably the biggest improvement of the returning cast members.

Yup, his delivery of "now let us begin" in this clip for example was awful, line itself was absolutely fine.

Did Goku call the Supreme Kai "Shin" in the Z dub or is this a Kai thing?

That is the name supreme kai uses to enter the tournament in both dubs

Oh yeah, if I had just waited a few minutes I could have seen that in the show lol. I haven't watched Kai in weeks or the Buu saga in a while so sorry for my forgetfulness :lol:

Isn't it in the Japanese version too, since they have to take up pseudonyms?
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

Gohan's Ssj2 transformation was better than I remember. The animation, his surroundings, his aura and hair, it was all really well done. It's a shame we'll NEVER see anything like that in modern DB.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Do you have to always throw shade at modern DB when discussing Kai? It's getting rather old at this point.

It's hard not to when watching them back to back and at least I'm not throwing shade on everything the original did just to try to make Super look better than it is.

Nobody is throwing shade at the original, at most people are noticing that things in the original weren't as well written as they seemed, but the point was I don't want to open a Kai thread and have this negativity about Super seeping in here. It's ridiculous.

Slowish episode. I don't notice the pacing increase yet. Love the transformation and vegeta's comment.
They changed supreme kai's line of "he's still the strongest one here".
Only a week away from the first blu-ray final chapter of kai. Can't wait.

The only real pace differences I can see from the series is the Japanese version, where they cut down the first 8-10 episodes even further than they were for the international, original, cut of the series when it aired in Japan. Unless they cut more stuff later in the arc that I don't know about.

Thanks for the reminder I completely forgot about the release coming up. Preordering now! I will say I am liking how quickly they are releasing Kai.

Really enjoying the dub so far. Honestly, as many times as I've read it in the manga, I've never watched the Buu saga from start to finish in the anime (I don't think I've seen any of it beyond highlights in English; I still have my old fansub VHS for the Majin Vegeta and Vegito portions though). The scripts and acting are superb. Preferred the Yamamoto score for the original Kai through Cell, undecided how I feel about the Buu soundtrack. Hoping that Sabat will do a great job for the sacrifice stuff and things leading up to it.

Unfortunately according to a post in a different forum Team Four Stars part did not make it on to the Blu Rays. It is just the recycled Z audio :/

Well THAT sucks to no end.

Starting now. All discs are in one case, kinda flimsy. English intro and ending songs. This is my first time watching Kai Final Chapters and wow, even the eye catches are riddled with spoilers for events later in the arc.
