Mixing and matching Kai and Z episodes

Post by Fizzer » Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:07 pm

Has anyone done anything like this, to get the overall fast-paced-ness of Kai but with parts the you preferred from Z? I've experimented with it a bit, and I've found that the following flows seamlessly:

Kai episode 5 - Wilderness Survival! A Moonlit Night Awakens Gohan
DBZ episode 9 - The Strangest Robot
DBZ episode 10 - A New Friend
DBZ episode 15 - Duelling Piccolo's
DBZ episode 16 - Plight of the Children
Kai episode 6 - The End of the Line is Reached! Playful Trials of Kaiosama

From what I could tell, there were no contradictions or incontinuities in this, and that's great because I like the Gohan filler quite a lot. I also know that the Garlic Jr saga could be inserted without any problems, if anyone wanted to do that.

Does anyone else know of instances where this works? I'm think the pre-androids training could be expanded by replacing it with the corresponding Z episodes, but I haven't tried it out, there could be some episode overlap.
