I want to watch Dragon ball z again, since i haven't watched it in years... but I don't want to trudge through all the filler of the original Z series.

How is Kai in general? I know there are some censorship issues and some off voice acting, but are there any other issues?
>>
it doesnt have faulconer music and a few famous lines have been butchered but overall its better

>doesnt have faulconer music
That's a shame, I really enjoyed the music in the original series.

I wonder if I could try and skip most of the originals filler episodes.

Watch Abridged. It's fucking terrible with cringey Reddit-tier writing but it's over quicker
>>
There's no censorship in the blu ray version. They only censored it for nickelodeon or some shit.

The music it does have though is pretty good orchestra music.

Also, the dub is leaps and bounds better than DBZ.

Same VAs, but years of experience improved their VA quality immensely.

The script also lines up much more with the original Japanese script than what Funimation was going for for the first half of DBZ of "super hero Goku" instead of "proud saiyan Goku"

Here's the famous "I am" speech in 3 different versions (DBZ, DB Kai and Team Four Star's Abridged).

Pros: Better voice acting (Both Sub and Dub imo)
Updated recording equipment gives better audio and SFX.
Better music. (No Faulconer)
Translation accuracy puts the Z dub to shame. They even say Son Goku once.
Pacing is better by leaps and bounds. It'll still take a lot more time watching the original and skipping filler episodes.
A bit of new animation in the show, not to mention the openings and ending.

Cons:Inconsistent animation.
Slight censorship issues.
In the 20 years they had they still haven't fixed some errors/ weird looking designs.
Restoration process seems to get lazier and lazier as time goes on with the Buu saga looking pretty bad.
Music changes part of the way through due to the composer copying other works (Avatar, Terminator Salvation).
No dub for the Buu saga yet.
Just overall laziness on Toei's part really.

Thank god, Faulconer music was shit and was poorly edited anyway.

Yamamoto OST is good, but its been removed in the latest versions of Kai

Here's a better comparison of the DBZ dub and the Kai dub.

Most of the censorship was on american television but that's not all of it.
I meant there were changes between Z and Kai even on the Blurays. This is a classical example.

It's better then most fan-dubs with better production values, and by people who are clearly passionate about DBZ. And they have a high degree of official recognition. Sabat Himself was in Super Android 13 Abridged.
