Dragon Ball Kai’s Last Episode on March 27th in Japan


For the hardcore Dragon Ball fans you should already know that Kai is coming to an end and is stopping at the Cell games. But for people just tuning in the last episode is just around the corner.



The Japanese voice actor for Trunks in the Dragon Ball Kai adaptation, Takeshi Kasao has revealed that episode 98 of the abridged series will be the last episode, which will air on March 27th in Japan. The timeslot which is currently occupied by Dragon Ball Kai will then be taken over by the Toriko anime adaptation premiering in April.  This means that the current season of Dragon Ball Kai is adapted directly from chapters #195-420 of the Dragon Ball manga while the original Z adaptation went up to chapter #519.
The series is currently airing as Dragon Ball Z Kai in the US on both the Nicktoons cable network and the Toonzai block on the CW TV network . While speaking to TV Pia magazine Kusao also expressed a desire to see the Buu arc receive the Kai treatment. “I hope they’ll remake the Buu arc as well if they get a chance.”
I for one have mixed feelings about the Buu arc and would like to see their adaption of it, but also at the same time kind of hope they do not redo it. After watching the English dub of Kai I was disappointed and would not want them ruining the Buu saga.

  3. End of a great era. I don't think anything, bar Gundam, can do what Dragon Ball did. Not with the global acclaim it received anyway.

  16. Sad to see it ending, but man, talk about a long and awesome franchise.

    I'm a big fan of the original Z episodes. It set the standard really high.

  17. I didn't really like the buu saga. I haven't watched kai yet but it may have done it some justice. Oh well.

  18. Dragonball died for me after Z, kai is just bleh in all the rehashing. Sure there are no fillers, but they were fun.

  23. I have not checked out Dragon Ball Kai for the sole reason that it will ruin my idealistic view of it. I'm scared if I watch it again, I will lose the magic that it holds in my heart.
