Pardon me, that trope's a new one: Brick Joke: With regards to Freeza's \"The Reason You Suck\" Speech below, Freeza promised to make Vegeta \"cry like a little bitch\" before their fight ended. After Vegeta realizes that he's completely outmatched, and possibly not a Super Saiyan, Freeza states that \"it's like I told you, Vegeta: like a bitch,\" and notes that Vegeta actually is crying. Call-Back: Vegeta repeats the same speech about him having ascended to becoming a Super Saiyan from Episode 25 verbatim, much to Freeza's annoyance. He later repeats it again regarding Goku after the latter shows up and deflects Freeza's Death Beam Spam, earning his death. The Jockstrap Incident briefly mentioned by Vegeta in Episode 23 is brought up once again as Freeza laments his total loss of manpower, noting that Captain Ginyu isn't even alive to bury the bodies this time. The \"DODGE!\" Running Gag with Piccolo is brought up once again. Freeza realizes that Goku's line of \"Imma deck you in the schnoz!\" is actually the first new heroic phrase uttered towards him that he's heard in a while, referencing a line he gave the Namekians in his introductory episode. Goku answers Freeza's question about who he is with \"I'm Goku! I'm insane, from Earth!\" with Vegeta saying that he means \"Saiyan,\" just like they did with the Ginyu Force in Episode 21. A Deleted Scene has Vegeta attempting to \"rock (Freeza) like a hurricane,\" like he did to the Arlian King, only for Freeza to completely block the telekinetic rock, at which point, Vegeta comments that he \"should've known that was only a one-hit wonder.\" Comically Missing the Point: Freeza tells the others not to mourn Dende's death since Freeza's spared him from watching him kill the others. Vegeta replies by telling Freeza: \"Joke's on you; He hated the bald one.\" Krillin then does this to Vegeta doing it, pointing out that Dende only just met Piccolo. When Goku asks about what happened to Vegeta, Freeza says that it happened because the two of them had a disagreement: Vegeta wanted himself to live, and Freeza didn't [want him to]. Goku misinterprets this as meaning that Freeza wants to die. Description Cut: Goku tells King Kai inside his healing pod not to worry about his friends and that he's sure they're doing just fine. Cut to Team Three Star freaking out over Dende's death:Vegeta: Healer's down! Krillin: Need a rez! note resurrection Gohan: Out of mana! (All three scream) Pet the Dog: Freeza may consider letting his underlings live as their payment, but he's still willing to give the Ginyu Force's families wine and gift baskets as condolence presents. Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: Goku finally has one Freeza has never heard before, after so frequently noting how frequently he's heard different attempted ones.Goku: Are you that \"Freezer\" guy Freeza: I am Lord Freeza, yes. Goku: Awesome! I'mma deck you in the schnoz! Freeza: (drops Vegeta) I'm sorry, that's a new one. Pun: Freeza tells Vegeta to \"let me tell you a tale,\" before using his tail to swat Vegeta into the water. \"The Reason You Suck\" Speech: While the first time Vegeta gave his ascension speech, Freeza responded with sarcasm, the second time has him doing this:Freeza: Okay, seriously. First off: \"Super Saiyan.\" What is that What even is that I'll tell you what it is: It's just some stupid legend, passed by your filthy monkey ancestors around a campfire like it was their own dung. Let me tell you, Vegeta: I don't deal in legends, I deal in facts. And here's a fact: By the end of this, you are going to be crying... like a little... bitch. Rule of Three: Vegeta gives his \"You're not dealing with the average Saiyan warrior\" speech to Freeza three times (including the first time a couple of episodes back) before the latter kills him over it. Shout-Out: The beginning of the episode has Goku singing Harry Nilsson's \"Coconut\" while inside his healing pod. Vegeta replies to Freeza's \"The Reason You Suck\" Speech by saying that Freeza's \"just jealous of my Super Saiyan Swagger.\" Vegeta shouts \"Dakka-Dakka-Dakka!\" while firing a Beam Spam at Freeza. During this, Piccolo mentions that Vegeta keeps missing Freeza, because he's shooting at where he is and not where he's going to be. At one point, Freeza compares killing Vegeta to \"putting down Old Space Yeller.\" At this point, Krillin has had it with the Space \"X\" Running Gag going on all season. After knocking Vegeta into the water, Freeza raises it up so he can continue beating Vegeta to the score from The Ten Commandments (1956). A crab with a Jamaican accent offers to help Vegeta defeat Freeza- until Freeza eats it. Goku later sings \"Row, Row, Row Your Boat\" with King Kai and Tien joining in at different intervals. The healing pod finishes healing him before Yamcha can join in. Vegeta once again attempts to rock his opponent like a hurricane. It doesn't work as well against Freeza.

After episode 97, there were initially no plans for Dragon Ball Kai to reach the Majin Buu Saga. A new anime series based on the Toriko manga debuted in April 2011, taking over the Dragon Ball Kai time slot at 9 AM on Sunday mornings before the One Piece anime series. The 97th episode of the series was broadcast on March 27, 2011 in Japan, and January 1, 2012 in America. The series was in syndication in Japan for exactly two years. Despite this, the series has been one of the top 10 rated anime series every week since syndication began in April 2009. The 98th episode of the series, which recapped the entire series and provided some closure, was released to DVD/Blu-ray on August 2, 2011, in Japan and was aired on Nicktoons in the U.S. on February 8, 2013. In November 2012, it was confirmed that the production of Dragon Ball Z Kai would continue and air outside of Japan. Mayumi Tanaka (the Japanese voice of Krillin in the series) posted the news on her blog confirming that Dragon Ball Kai would be continuing, as voice work was already underway for the early stages of the Majin Buu story arc. Her post went on to specify that the series revival is for the overseas market, and as of the time of her post there are no plans to air the new episodes in Dragon Ball's home country of Japan. In April 2013, Sean Schemmel and Kyle Hebert (the Funimation dub voice actors for Goku and Gohan) confirmed they were recording their lines for the Funimation dub of the Buu Saga. In November 2013, when questioned about it on their Facebook page, it was stated by Australian anime distributor Madman Entertainment that the Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Z Kai should be released on November 8, 2014 on Cartoon Network, as they were just waiting on dubs to be finished.
Dragon Ball Kai returned with the Majin Buu arc to Japanese TV on April 6, 2014, taking over the time slot previously occupied by Toriko. This story arc was comprised of 61 episodes for the Japanese version, and 69 episodes for the International version, raising the total episode count for the entire Kai series to 159 episodes for the Japanese version and 167 episodes for the International version.
The series was extensively \"refreshed\" for Japanese television. This is not a new animation, but rather a remastered edit that runs through Dragon Ball Z to provide a presentation that is as faithful to the original manga as possible, removing a majority of DBZ's padding and filler. Part of this is reformatting and extending the picture to 16:9 Widescreen. However, for episodes 1-98, this only exists with the footage used for the Japanese and Nicktoons broadcasts; the footage used for the home media release and Toonami broadcasts are in the original 4:3 ratio. Through digital processing, the image was made vibrant. All the music, damage and noise remaining on the Dragon Ball Z film is removed, making the image much clearer in high-definition.
Dragon Ball Kai includes a complete re-recording of the dialog by most of the original Japanese voice cast (in part due to the master audio for Z being permanently lost), as well as completely new sound design with updated sound effects. The opening and ending themes are completely new. Takayoshi Tanimoto performs the series' opening themes \"Dragon Soul\" and \"Kuu-Zen-Zetsu-Go\", and the closing theme \"Yeah! Break! Care! Break!\" These new opening and closing credits have newly animated appearances by most of the main cast, as well as for the villains, such as Raditz, Nappa, Vegeta, Frieza, Zarbon, Dodoria, and the Ginyu Force. There's also a new artwork clip after every intermission, such as one of Cui and Vegeta in episode 19. Unlike the original Dragon Ball Z, which only had two sets of eyecatches for the entire series, in Dragon Ball Kai, it changes every few episodes to feature an appropriate character ensemble/situation.
As with most filler sequences in Dragon Ball Z, the Garlic Jr. Saga does not air in Dragon Ball Kai. Originally lasting from episodes 108 to 117, the saga featured the return of Garlic Jr., the main villain from the first DBZ movie. The saga was completely filler and Garlic Jr. or any of his henchmen did not appear in the original manga. Because Kai stays truer to the manga, this saga has been completely cut out. 59ce067264
