I only watched the first and last part of the episode as the stream was suspended for a while, but I think a track played two times... weird... Other than that there was good amount of silence on the parts I could watch. So it was a good episode for me.

The cropping was suuuuuuuuuuuper distracting during Goku's demonstration of the Fusion Dance in this episode. You could barely tell what was going on because the image was zoomed in way too much.

Terrible placement when Goku showed the fusion pose :/ it took the silliness out of it.

I don't think that would be a problem, there was many serious music tracks playing in goofy scenes of original dbz. Like the ginyu intro.

The Z version of fusion pose is one of my favourite scenes EVER, well it works in Kai but Z was better.
Well, Ginyu was EPIC, that's the reason for that placement.

The cropping seems OK for some of it but why'd they cut off Boo's smile? Dammit Toei. :|

This is why the cropping doesn't work on Dragon Ball .

According to Anime News Network, almost everytime, Kai is on Top 10 in weekly "Most Watched Anime" but, like before, it doesn't really mean anything in terms of sales.

First post! :wave: But yes, I agree. I think Kai 1.0 regularly ranked in the top 5 in Japan while airing, but it wasn't a blockbuster success in revenue. I believe anime revenue in Japan relies heavily on merchandise and DVD sales.

Noticeably worse than Kai's original run in terms of audience share.

This is nothing compared to the first episodes from the International Version. The BGMs are more repetitive there.

I might try my own scoring if the soundtrack is released, I can't say I like too much what they do with the placement :S
