The logo gets things right.

My gosh! Who was expecting this?

Dragon Ball Kai, meet your American cousin, Dragon Ball Z Kai. FUNimation finally let the cat out of the bag today, posting the above logo with the title “The Answer is Yes.” There isn’t much to say beyond that – FUNimation hit it big with the original Dragon Ball Z, so it’s only natural that they acquire and release the recently edited/censored  remake of the mega-hit sci-fi action series..

The problem is that FUNimation has already started releasing a repackaged and remastered version of DBZ here in the states, so it remains to be seen if people will want to buy Dragon Ball yet another time. However, DBZ has strong numbers and FUNimation’s usually a pretty shrewd dealer, so with any luck and a patient timeline, they’ll be more than fine. It’s just that the timing is a little strange for this announcement, since it’ll be a few more months before the Dragon Boxes finish their run and avoid bumping into the new Kai series.
