I do not see the positive role model at all or the positive message. What's the positive message? "Fight and Destroy all evil?" Who's the positive role model? Goku? the guy with brain damage from the original series...the guy who "fights for fun?"...I don't believe any of these things and a ten year old doesn't need to be taught this. I don't mean to be mean or cruel, but funimation was very lazy in the production of this. To me this appears to be a scam for money, seriously, look at how little effort they put into this! 90% of the series is from the 1980's. Very little has been changed in the animation. What? are you satified with the new intro? give me a break!! I was so excited for a new BETTER DBZ. But then the intro ended and landed me in the orignal DBZ with new voice actors. The story is plan, simple and boring. The bad guys are bad for the sake of being bad, hardly any dept in any characters. Just cliche and overused catch phases, an illogical way of fighting ("you distract the opponent, get killed, and I'll charge up my energy for the final attack", btw they miss the target have the time), and a terrible dragged out story line. When I watched this several months ago, I was disgusted. When the tacky narrator said, "find out what happens next on the next Dragon Ball Z Kai..." I groaned and hated the series for the rest of my life. This series feeds on curiousity and thrives on it to. If you are that curious to find out what happens next check google, play the video game ('cause some of the games are good and they zoom though the terrible story quickly), or just waste dozens of hours to nowhere. If the humor was better, if the story was better, more suspenceful, less lenghty, offered more, and definately less typical and predictable, I might enjoy the series much more. I still can't get over the fact that CommonSenceMedia even thought of giving this series 3 stars (please reconsider). I'm sorry I had to say this, for anime's sake.
