Last week, I wrote about DragonBall Z Kai, and someone posted an awesome comment, so I decided to continue the discussion.
First off, there is good news. DragonBall Z Kai is being continued! They recently announced that the series is going to continue, through the Buu Saga. The announcement came from Japan, but they say that the new episodes will only appear in non-Japanese countries.
And here's the bad news. I'm not sure I support this.
That would bring them to my favorite part of DragonBall Z, which is Season 7. I love that season. It's almost a complete break from the rest of the series, which is all about drama and fighting. Season 7 is about all about comedy and romance.
But if they try to remove all the filler from Season 7...
...I think they'll have about four episodes of real material. They don't get around to mentioning Majin Buu--the main villain of the series--until the very last episode. You could literally skip the rest of the season, and your understanding of the main plotline would not be hampered.
I'm hesitant to see what DBZK will do to my favorite season. If the series is faithful to its "eliminate all filler" motto, the season will be decimated.
