"New age of Kai" anime to cover Majin Buu Saga when it debuts on April 6

Toei Animation began streaming a Majin Buu promotional video on Friday for the return of the Dragon Ball Z Kai anime. The video highlights the character Majin Buu before the "new age of Kai" series begins covering the Majin Buu Saga arc on April 6.

The same video played Toei's booth at last weekend's Anime Japan event.

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 confirmed last month that it has not begun recording a dub for the Majin Buu Saga, 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 arc.

Voice actress Shino Kakinuma (Sailor Moon's Naru Osaka, Kemonozume's Rie Kakinoki) will be replacing Yūko Minaguchi (Sailor Moon's Hotaru/Sailor Saturn, Kanon's Akiko Minase) in the role of Videl, as Minaguchi is still on hiatus.

The main voice cast includes:

Japanese rock band Good Morning America is contributing their song "Haikei, Zarathustra" (Dear Zarathustra) as the new ending theme.
