Great, now only more five to go!
I thought it was two, followed by two sort of epilogue episodes? (Similar to how their compressed-down take on the Garlic Jr. arc was a sort of epilogue episode to the Freeza arc)

Good question. His last video was three months ago and he seems to be only retweeting things on his Twitter account.
I've always kinda hoped Raditz would pop up in Abridged again briefly at some point, maybe in the Afterlife Tournament or the Boo arc. Wonder if they'd do that, and do a twofer with Princess Snake too, given the videogame connection to Snake. Could tie that up with Zarbon in a really funny way for an amazing brick joke. :lol:

This question was probably asked a million times before but i'm just wondering, will the Buu saga also get abridged or will the series end with the Cell saga?

Kaiser has said that the series will be going on another hiatus after episode 60. For how long, they can't say. They still have a lot of stuff to do for their businesses, some of which are just starting to take off, so that's gonna take time & these things happen slowly. When they're in a comfortable place, they'll come back to do it is basically his answer.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

I think it's open ended. They might or might not do Buu. In my personal opinion I think they should keep continuing even if it takes another 10 years to finish.

I agree. I'd much rather see them cover the Majin Boo arc at whatever slower, steadier, accommodating pace they need, and likewise release it through whatever channels they need... than to not do it at all and leave DBZ Abridged as a bitterly unfinished product. I'm sure most other people would agree with that.

Man, whenever we get a shorter version of Dragon Ball Z the Buu saga gets the shaft.

The idea is that, if we do the Buu Saga, we'll take about 6-8 months to write a season out, then start producing the episodes, most likely 10-12.

The editing would be split, with me doing the backend stuff, as well as directing and co-writing as per the usual.

This would make for a remarkably less uneven release schedule. Maybe release two a month, and try to maintain the writing schedule as necessary, hopefully cutting it down to half a year max.

This is tentative, and only will happen if we even DO continue after the Cell Saga. We'll see how things pan out.

Dude, that sounds awesome. I really hope this goes ahead. :)

One question: Do you mean 10-12 months, or 10-12 episodes...? Apologies if I'm just being dumb here... :lol:

Still, regardless of which way this goes, I understand if this doesn't work out, and I thank you greatly for continuing to be transparent and informative about all this.

So is your vision for the Buu saga much faster paced than the Cell saga?

Probably a little. When I say "10-12" that would basically be the first third of the season

I mean, it's abridged, so it can be any pace you like. You could do the entire Buu saga in one episode if you wanted.

I can see it now... "We gotta use Fusion! No, we gotta use the Z-Sword! No, we gotta seal him in the Room of Spirit and Time! No, we gotta rely on this powerup from the Elder Kai! No, we gotta use Fusion again except it's a different kind! No, we gotta use the Spirit Bomb!"

...I mean that is basically the second two thirds of the Boo-arc in a nutshell. Methods of potentially beating Boo being introduced and dismissed/countered like every three episodes.

That description sounds like what LK does for Yugioh Abridged, where he cuts down HUGE chunks of episodes into 10-15 minute abridged episodes from the Yugioh anime & doesn't have an arbitrary "number of episodes per season" rule like you guys seem to have had so far. I mean, your seasons increased by 10 episodes per, with the movies every so often & maybe a special. I was actually looking forward to a 40 episode Buu Saga, which would've brought the series to 100 episodes, with the remaining 5 90s Z movies to come.

Then again, this isn't surprising, since you said in one of the gaming livestreams, I think for Dark Souls III, that you thought of doing the sagas of Dragon Ball, pre-Z, as movies, which I think would be cool. Still, the Buu Saga has, including the Otherworld Tournament episodes, 99 episodes after the Cell Saga. Whether you want to adapt that mini-filler arc is up to you guys, but still, it's 96 episodes, which was cut down to 59-67 episodes in Kai, depending on if you're watching the international cut or the Japanese cut. Several of which were total filler in Kai, the rest are canon materials from the Manga in animated form. What I'm saying is that, it seems like it would take more episodes than 10-12, since it's not as short as the Saiyan Saga. It seems like it would have to be at least as long as your Season 2 to have decent pacing that isn't overly rushed. I mean, LK had a bit of a problem with that towards the end of his season 3, where the episodes had faster pacing after the gang got out of the Virtual World. He's gotten better with the pacing for Season 4, but what's done is done there. I don't want to have the last saga being rushed just for the sake of getting it over. I don't even want you guys to stretch it to 40 episodes.
Hell, even the canon series' have this problem. Z was bogged down by huge gaps in the chapter releases, which caused unnecessary & blatant filler scenes, which was thankfully solved by Kai's existence. Then we have Super, which has the opposite problem. Due to being based directly off of Toriyama's plot outlines rather than having him directly, the arcs after the first are incredibly rushed & start & end at weird points that are unnatural. Then we have the TOP, which dragged from what I heard, due to not much going on but fighting, which you can feel Toriyama's lack of involvement because of what he did for the previous tournament arcs in the manga.

Ok, good. Thankfully I saw this before publishing this response. Good to know about that. Yeah, I think that if you wanna move at a pace that's comfortable for you guys, that's what we'd want & understand. 10-12 episode chunks would be cool. Until last year, you guys had a consistent schedule of 1 episode a month, sometimes slightly more for a gap if you had a movie or special abridged come out. Depending on when you'd abridge the remaining movies, this would probably be a good schedule for you guys. Since the Buu Saga has 3-4 noticeable plot shifts in it, adapting it like that would be good, from what I can tell. It'd give you guys time off to recharge your batteries & be able to do other things before coming back to it. I think everyone could handle that. At the very least, that's what you've been discussing. It makes sense.

It's like the Buu arc is cursed. It got cut out of Kai, it missed out on some games, 2 of its 4 movies were Broly ones and now its abridged version is somewhat not guaranteed (but it looks like things will go through thankfully).
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

What your plans about the remaining movies? Also finishing DBZ Abridged on 80 or 90 episodes sounds good to me.

This. I would love to see your guy's take on Bojack since he was lingering in the show since the very first season. It would be a complete circle.

It's just one shot of him going "Yarr" and then Gohan kills him.



(I'm assuming Gohan kills him, I've never watched 16/20 of the movies)
