  • S_Napalm

    Kinda wish they’d get it over with and make a proper new DB series and try to make it suck less than the majority of GT. There’s only so many times I can re-watch DB and Z…

    @yo

    Wrong, DBZ Kai is the original DBZ remade in higher definition with new voice overs. It’s the same episodes as the old DBZ.

  • yo its me its me its joe-y d.

    Actually supercena….dbz is all brand new remade episodes
    ..my son watches them….

  • Supercena < Divorce Papers

    They don’t take into consideration that any of those shows were new.

    Yugioh and DBZ ended many years ago. DBZ would have crushed that in ratings if it was a new episode.
