Glad they left the fight in-tact, not much was removed which suits me just fine :). Just under 9 episodes worth now to be cut from the last 17. Another break next week will take us right up until the 5th July (assuming no more breaks are taken).

They did an awesome job of ruining the joke behind the Elder Kaioshin killing himself in the next episode preview. At the last few seconds, too.

The animation could've been better.

Have come across many dissatisfactions over Musical score, but almost zero emphasize on art/animation aspect.

We're at 2015. How abt little effort in "trying" to improve some atrocious drawings. Shows like FMAB, HXH(2011) & DN had top-notch Music AND Animation.

Even as ordinary viewer pre-Kai, I've always wondered Tadayoshi Yamamuro's chronic lack of involvement in Buu Saga.

Because Kai's job has never been to redo the animation. It's about editing, remastering, and rescoring to make it manga-accurate and slightly more palatable for modern audiences.

Shows like FMA:B, HxH and Death Note were all created after the manga was done by talented studios on a decent budget. If Toei had done the series from scratch in place of Kai, we'd have arguably worse animation because they're cheap, lazy and throw very few talented staff at Dragon Ball.

It's not really 'lazy' so much as "don't plan ahead, because they have eight series running at once.

Anyway, it looks like Dragon Ball Kai will last throughout April, May and June to promote Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F. This should make things a little easier on the series that replaces it, which is no doubt been in production for a few months already.

We'd have a Dragonball equivalent of 'Sailor Moon Crystal', which is something I can't imagine anyone would want.

To be honest, they fix most of "derpy" faces in Crystal for home release, also, the way anime is drawn is to match Naoko Takeuchi art style, it is not perfect by any means, and i certainly don't like Crystal director blocking comments on Twitter, but still, I'm gonna take Crystal over this poor excuse of remake, where only voice actors are at least try to bring A game any day
