One thing that came to my mind while watching was just how little you'd know about secondary fighters like Yamcha, Tenshinhan and Chiautzu if you were to just watch Kai and nothing else. Personally, if I were a newb to the series, I'd want at least some kind of episode explaining who these random fighters that aren't Goku are.
... then again, if I really wanted Kai to be better, I'd probably put new smexy animation as the first priority...
I feel like Toei's just teasing us sometimes with new little blips of animation. A few videogame openings here, Kai's OP/ED and eyecatchers there....and as much as I loved the "Ossu!" (it's seriously near the very top of my favorite DB-related specials) I'd really, really, REALLY love to see them pull off one more 2-D animated Dragon Ball movie (something about an hour or two hours long, not 35 minutes) before Ms. Nozawa retires. I know they can do it; they've shown they could do it if they wanted to; I don't even care if its a rehash of current material, I'd just really like to see it happen.
*Heaves a sigh*.
I did originally see Z before DB as a newbie and I had no clue what Yamcha, Tenshinhan, Chaotzu, et all's backgrounds were. I thought Yamcha was Goku's father until we hit the late Freeza arc and Bardock appeared. ^^;
So yes, some fleshing out of the backgrounds would've been nice for Kai; too late now though.
