posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Kyle Herbert and Sean Schemmel, the voice actors of Gohan and Goku respectively in Dragon Ball Z's English dub, have both announced that they are recording for the Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Z Kai. Herbert added that he could not announce any release or broadcast dates for the Buu Saga at this time.
Dragon Ball Z Kai (known as just Dragon Ball Kai in Japan) condenses the 1989-1996 Dragon Ball Z anime series to more closely follow Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball manga. The series features digital high-definition remastering, a re-recorded soundtrack, and select scenes updated with new effects or re-animated footage.
The Japanese cast recorded new episodes in November after the series' original run in Japan in March 2011. Funimation released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America. The American channel Nicktoons completed the first run of Funimation's English release last year and removed the series from its schedule earlier this month. The series is airing on Saban Brands and The CW's Vortexx (formerly Toonzai) programming block on Saturdays.
