It has finally been confirmed that FUNimation is working on the Buu Saga for Dragon Ball Kai. We acquired this information from an interview with Sean Schemmel, the voice of Goku.
Here is the segment from his interview confirming this development:
Tell us about some of the projects you have been involved in. What is your favourite project to date?
“Well of course, the Dragonball series has a special place for me in my heart, but there are other projects that were more “fun” for a number of reasons. Kappa Mikey comes to mind, which was a parody about anime. Recording both the audiobooks “Shit My Dad Says” and “I Suck At Girls” was a total blast to work on because those books are hilarious. But most recently getting to play Batman/Bruce Wayne in the iPad game Batman The Dark Knight Rises by Gameloft was really really thrilling. I consider it a major career highlight. I’m currently working Yugioh Zexal and I am about to finish the Buu saga for DBZ Kai.”
Another statement worth mentioning is one of Kyle Herbert, the voice of adult Gohan.
Kyle Herbert recently posted this on his Facebook page:
Just got the blessing to announce I will be returning as Gohan for the Buu Saga of Dragonball Z Kai. No release or broadcast dates for now. For those who overlooked Kai because of the edits on TV, remember its UNCUT on DVD/blu ray. Pretty psyched to return to the role that began my VO career. Recording in a few weeks.
We are definitely enthusiastic about this new information, are you?
