posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga Entertainment has announced that it will release Dragon Ball Kai (the condensed, remastered version of Dragon Ball Z) on Blu-ray and DVD. Season 1 will be released on August 3, followed by Season 2 on September 28 (or September 23, according to the tweet caption).
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. A further run began in April 2014 in Japan, covering the Majin Buu Saga arc.
