News Funimation Has Not Recorded a Dub for Dragon Ball Z Kai's Buu Saga
posted on 2014-02-17 14:43 EST
Funimation Entertainment confirmed with ANN on Monday that it has not begun recording a dub for the Majin Buu saga of Dragon Ball Z Kai, and does not yet have plans to do so.
Dragon Ball Z Kai voice actors Kyle Herbert and Sean Schemmel reported in April of 2013 that they were recording for the Buu saga, but the Buu saga will not air in Japan until this April 6. The Japanese cast recorded new episodes in November 2012, after the series' original run in Japan in March 2011.
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 2009-2011 run of Dragon Ball Z Kai covered from the Saiyan Saga to the Android Cell Saga.
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 in 2012 and removed the series from its schedule last April. The series is airing on Saban Brands and The CW's Vortexx (formerly Toonzai) programming block on Saturdays.
