Fuji TV's official website announced the voice cast for the return of the Dragon Ball Z Kai anime. Voice actress Shino Kakinuma (Sailor Moon's Naru Osaka, Kemonozume's Rie Kakinoki) will be replacing Yuko Minaguchi (Sailor Moon's Hotaru/Sailor Saturn, Kanon's Akiko Minase) in the role of Videl, as Minaguchi is still on hiatus.

Dragon Ball Z Kai will return on Sunday, April 6 at 9:00 a.m. on Fuji TV. The "new age of Kai" will cover the Majin Buu Saga.

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.

The Japanese cast recorded new episodes in November 2012, after the series' original run in Japan in March 2011. Funimation released the first 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. [Via Yaraon!]
