What Went Wrong by shinigamisgem What Went Wrong by shinigamisgem
I made this cause I can't tell you how many people liked the damn movie and Kai. I swear, it breaks my heart to know those 2 points define a series I grew up with. Not to mention, the new generations have no taste when they see censored versions and think they are the greatest things to hit a tv.

Another protest to Kai and Evolution! Viva La DBZ Original!

Kai was following the filler-less manga and Evolution was terrible even back when it was in development!

There's a secret to enjoying the live action movie......don't think of it as an adaptation, think of it as an AU fan-fiction whose author was rich enough to turn it into a film. Seriously, it becomes much more enjoyable when watched in that state of mind.

The Dragon Ball Kai version (besides the Toonzai and Nictoons, it just censored the good stuff out, thank god for FUNimation) is based from the script just like in the manga without the fillers, I've read it from the arrival of Raditz to the fight between Super Saiyan Goku against Full Powered Frieza on the dying Planet Namek, and it is pretty similar besides the settings, I'd say it's pretty good, both subbed and dubbed.

But with DragonBall Evolution here in the U.S., LEAVE ME OUT OF IT!!! It is absolutely appalling from the first glance I had on my sight onto the movie, just terrible, just please remove my retinas out of my eyes!!!

Eh, DBKAI was alright. Not as good as DBZ of course, but it's pretty good quality and never misses anything in the manga.

DBEvolution on the other hand, I'm with you. I literally ran out of my room, shut the door and refused to go back in until the movie stopped playing. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE.

I have no issues with Kai (even though there are some iffy voices). I do wholeheartedly agree with you on the "Dragonball" Evolution film... That was just an insult... I'm not going to get much into it because I want to go back to pretending it never exists because it just sucks...

Kai is alright, but certainly not better than the Original Dragon Ball Z. Sorry to say, but even if the show is closer to the manga, everything just happens to damn fast. It's like one minute Goku and Piccolo are fighting Raditz, and the next minute he's coming back to Earth to fight Vegeta. I mean, the fillers are what made Dragon Ball Z what it is. And Kai could never compare to it. I hate the new voices, particularly Gohan and Bulma. They reanimated a couple of scenes which was, in itself, completely idiotic because there was nothing freaking wrong with it. I don't know why people complain about something being closer to the manga, because there was nothing wrong with the Original. If they only cut down a few of the fight scenes involving Goku vs. Frieza, then it'd be alright. But other than that there was nothing wrong with the Original. :/ And I completely agree with everything you just said. xD

As for Evolution, I'd rather not get into that. I'd go on another long-winded tangent and God knows that'll last for hours on end. One thing is for sure, I definitely hate the movie. I was tempted to buy it just so I could smash it to pieces, but even a few dollars shouldn't be wasted on the shitty movie.

Dear God thank you!! I can't stand Kai and I hated the movie. It's all just crap. I'm currently looking for the original series on ebay and Amazon so that I can fondly remember my childhood and not have to deal with the Kai crap. >__<

for the original american version is a waste, i have what they made and they stopped before they finished it. The original unedited versions are all very easy to find. Dragonball comes in blue, DBZ in orange and GT in green. That has all the footage and original Japanese music. The show is great, but i still liked the american music, because if americans got anything right, it was the ability to add dramatic music to a series.

Come on, Kai isn't that bad. Sure, most of the fillers are gone (especially some of the ones that actually make the show more interesting), but they still kept a chunk of it (Bardock, Gregory, most of the fight scenes). The animation is inconsistent, but it's nice to see that they -tried- to remaster the whole series. The openings and endings look awesome, though. And besides, the picture you used is -from- Kai... And the voice acting is a lot better, if you compare the English versions. I can understand why people bash Gohan's and Jeice's new voices, but their not that bad...and Frieza's new voice is awesome. Cell's improved, too. The soundtrack fit well, too, before they replaced it with Kikuchi's soundtrack, which fits at times as well.

Dragon Ball Evolution sucks no matter what everyone says, though :D

more along the lines is that kai represents censorship, and the fact that they are trying to reintroduce an already great show back to americans as if we didn't already know it existed. It's more of an insult, but not nearly as insulting as the movie

wow first off kai has an uncut set which blows away everything else. second the original if its not japanese took a shit on the manga with its bullshit and filler while kai only kept in a little filler that wasn't bullshit like gohan and the dinosaur, goku and piccolo driving, garlic jr, and more crap. even the funi actors say kai is better i have met them in person and many videos on youtube show sean schemmel praising it. don't get me started on freeza and her original shit voice. seriously how could anyone take that voice seriously. chris ayres is a thousand times better since he actually matches his japanese counterpart. oh and old funi censored vegeta by making him say freeza made me do all this when he did everything cause he wanted to. he killed an entire village off of freezas orders and didn't care. he believes in freeza threat of killing his father when he already knows he is dead so that became worthless. most people who hate kai have not seen the manga and would understand how the original was butchered. i used to believe dbz was better until i actually sat through the entire series and saw the manga realizing how the original messed up toriyama's intent. oh and i came from the dbz timeline in the 90's so i have seen both at both times. most kai haters hate kai for retarded reasons and won't get nostalgia out of their minds. seriously whats to hate on kai when they actually respect the source material rather than change it.

Completely agree. Kai doesn't make any sense. I'm glad I live in latin america. I've seen DBZ without cesorship and with dialogs taken directly from the Japanese version almost ten times now.

And no. I don't think anyone liked Evolution.

u should though, because a true fan will endure it, no matter how painful the series is. And kai is not horrible, I'm against what it stands for and the new voice actors. Gohan and Trunks were my favorite characters and they ruined them, completely.

Dude, the movie sucked. I coulda written a better script and picked better actors when I was 3 because I'VE WATCHED THE SHOW.
Kai actually isn't that bad; it's just the one's they show in the US are all on 4-kids-like networks. If you watch Kai before the censors started hacking away, it's actually pretty different. They just redid some of the voices and revamped the animation, since apparently it was out of date.. The original Kai still has the same essential script and shows blood and they actually cuss.
I do prefer the original, making that last paragraph pointless...
And that sexy purple haired beast on the right? Yeah... He's mine. MINE!!!

Tell me about it! Everyone I talk to at Sailor Moon Conventions rave like hell about the DiC Dubb!
'I just LOVE Serena! I Love Darien! I LOVE the way it all flows from season one to season five!'

WHOA! Season FIVE?! The Starlights never made it to TV! We had seasons 1-4 and three movies and that was it. When I pulled out my portable DVD Player I didn't know what was in it or I forgot what I was watching the previous night due to a too severe thunderstorm watching the tv was a no no. When I turned it back on the original Japanese version of Sailor Moon started playing and it pretty much resumed from where Usagi meets up with Beryl and the battle begins.
