#4 on Worst TV Role Models? Are you serious?

I came across an article on this site called "Worst TV Role Models." Most of the time I just ignore the parental junk, but I decide to go in it. Dragon Ball Z Kai, Goku and Gohan?! Bad role models?! FOR TRYING TO SAVE THE WORLD?! This show is perfectly appropriate and cool too!

Kai Uncut Version

There is an uncut version of Dragonball Z Kai avalible only on DVD and Blu-Ray (clips can be found on Funimation's website). In the uncut version, there is a lot more blood (in one case it had to be censored in Japan) and swearing than the CW and Nicktoons version. So if you have a pre-teen who wants to see the show in it's unedited format, be cautious of the adult content in the show.

Pretty good...

I watch this every Saturday on Nicktoons. It's a good anime. I don't think anyone under 8 years old should watch it. There are a few very small, subtle adult themes. If you're not watching the Nicktoons edit, then don't let your kids watch the other edit; just let them watch the Nicktoons one. Since this comes from Japan, it does have some strong themes that Americans are not comfortable with, but, it's typical anime- you'll get used to it sooner or later.

Action cartoon one of the best!

I really like this show. It isn't as good as the books, but this is a show any kid ot tween could like. It does have a lot of violence, though.

Most Reviews Are Wrong

Some people are saying it is inappropriate but the kai version is especially made for young age groups like nine to thirteen

Dragon Ball Z Kai is an edited version of the popular anime Dragon Ball Z. Kai removes the filler(episodes which do not advance the plot) from Z, making it closer to the manga's story. As for how safe this show is for children, it really depends on which version of Dragon Ball Z Kai you are watching. Certain versions, such as the nick toons edit, remove blood, profanity, and suggestive language to a certain degree. This review, however, concerns the uncut, original version of the show. Dragon Ball Z Kai is an action show which focuses on martial arts. Naturally, violence is nearly always present in the show as the characters are constantly fighting enemies. Some mild profanity occasionally occurs. One side character, Master Roshi, is a pervert and makes many suggestive comments and acts perverted towards other female characters. Please note that Roshi rarely shows up in the entirety of the show and he is not present for almost entire seasons of the show. Some characters are shown drinking but, as far as I recall, the show never explicitly calls the beverage alcoholic. Multiple characters are also either heavily or injured or killed. Those who are killed are shown passing into the "next world", which is Kai's portrayal of the afterlife. There is virtually no consumerism in this show, as it takes place in an "alternate Earth". Practically all products are made by the fictional company "Capsule Corporation" which is run by the recurring character Dr. Brief, father of side character Bulma. The show's conflicts mainly stem from the theme of "Good Vs. Evil". Goku, the show's main character, is constantly training to become the greatest martial artist and never stops believing in himself. Though he is usually outclassed by the current villain, his tenacity allows him to overcome any obstacle, including the villain.

Good show.

I have watched this show on January 4, 2015 at 12:00 am. There was something awesome on it. I have watched this on Adult Swim, a night program on Cartoon Network.

Not as good as the original, but still amazing.

I watch Dragon Ball Z Kai on Nicktoons sometimes. It very action packed and the animation is very good. I just prefer the original.

Great Show For Kids And Adults!

Has some violence and very little blood. Some characters will die. It teaches good lessons such as never give up, forget pride, teamwork, and much more. This show is great for kids. I know some kids who watched it and decided to work out and get huge muscles like the guys in the show. If your child is about 13 or older he could watch Dragon Ball Z which is just the original version with a little bit of bad language, nudity(only in babies), blood, but same amount of violence.

dragon ball z STUPID

this TERRIBLE exuse of a show should be BANNED because of how bad this show is. It's a show of annoying action and cowards running away from the enemy. Kids and parents everywhere don't be fooled by the action show of Dragon Ball Z Kai it is the worst show that i've seen in my life.

DBZ'S BACK, BABY!!! XD

What a series! That's right, Z fans, DBZ is back, and better than ever! Digitally remastered, no filler, (FINALLY XD) more true to the manga, and with a catchy new theme song! (Plus, your kids will like it too, so you can talk DBZ geek with them!) The series gets its name from the seven magic "Dragon Balls," that, once gathered together, summon the dragon Sheron to grant any one wish. This anime sums up Dragon Ball into a prologue and picks up where it ends. It has been five years since Goku has defeated Piccolo Junior, and he has been living a peaceful life with his wife, Chi-Chi and their son, Gohan (named after Goku's grandfather.) Then, a super powerful fighter named Raditz appears, claims he's Goku's brother, and tells Goku that he's an alien called a Saiyan, and that's where he gets his super abilities. (Flight, Super Strength, and Ka-Me-Ha-Me-Ha wave, just to name a few.) Raditz kidnaps Gohan, so Piccolo and Goku face Raditz, but the result of the fight is Goku and Raditz dying, two more powerful Saiyans coming to earth, and Piccolo kidnapping Gohan to train him! After a year of preparation and training, (Goku in heaven) Goku's friends gather the Dragon Balls and wish Goku back to life! Will it be enough to beat the evil Saiyans? Parents should know that there are three versions of this anime: The CW4Kids version, which has no blood, cussing, or nudity. Violence: 5/10 Even though the blood is nil, there's still plenty of violence between good and evil in every episode. Sex: 4/10 People in tighty-whities and boxers, non-sexually. Language: 1/10 Darn it, Shut up, Stupid, and idiot is as bad as it gets. Rated TV-Y7 FV. This is ON for kids 7+. Then there's the Nicktoons version, which has some blood, and still no cussing or nudity. Violence: 6/10 On some occasions, characters have small bloody noses or lips, or maybe a small cut. Sex and Language are the same as the CW4Kids version. Rated TV-Y7 FV. ON for 9+. Finally, the uncut version, which has lots of blood, mild profanities, and non-sexual nudity. Violence: 8/10 Blood is coughed up, spurts out of wounds, and numerous bloody cuts and scrapes are visible. Sex: Non-graphic nor sexual nudity during healing scenes or after transformations into large apes. Language: 5/10 Infrequent use of D**n, B******, H***, and Crap. This is ON for 12+.

Amazing show

If you watch uncut (not on T.V.), it has lots of swearing, but if you watch on Nicktoons, its fine, but there is a ton of violence. Uncut has red blood and sometimes some people have cigars. Edited has grayish blood (sometimes orange) and they remove tobacco products. In uncut, if someone gets hit really hard, a flash fills the screen and you can't really see the hit. In one scene, a creature impales someone with his horn, but on T.V. there is no blood and the horn is removed.
