Nope, sounds like they mean DBZ.

Also:
Quote:
FUNimation will offer its professionally-produced, uncut, English-tracked and English-subtitled adaptations of the hugely successful series beginning with the first episode as well as other chapters of the Dragon Ball franchise: Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Z Kai.

Is this hinting at possible streaming for all the other series in the future do you think?

Too bad its also not open to the UK, oh well....

You might want to change the title of the article since Hulu's hosting the streams.

This might not have much effect on most of us, but when you consider DBZ has been one of Funi's biggest cash cows for a very long time, and now they're finally going to give it out for free, it is a fairly significant announcement. At the very least, I presume DBZ will end up being very popular on Hulu, which might help attract attention to Funi's other titles up for streaming.

This one's more for the non-anime fans, I'd say.

I sincerely hope that they're not going to air DBZ in that "chopscreen" job from the orange box sets, but I'm guessing that's what they might do.

Thanks but no thanks, give me Kai instead. I don't get why GT would get so much exposure because that was more or less a failure.

But whatever you do, do NOT give me Evolution, that was doomed from the start.

More exposure to the franchise is always a good thing. Can't wait to watch. Smile

Nice to hear, but I'll continue my rewatching of the series through Kai. That is, if Nicktoons ever gets episode 49 working on their site.

Meh, DBZ's been done to death. I'd rather have Toupee stream me some Go Nagai already.

They were giving it away for free for over a decade on TV, now they're giving Kai away for free on TV. All this does is change where they're offering it, it's still ad supported.

I wish it was a Kai simulcast or even delayed a week or two.
