Toei announced in 2012 that it would [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-11-06/dragon-ball-z-kai-japanese-cast-records-new-episodes produce the Buu Saga for overseas markets]]; these episodes starting airing in Japan on 6 April 2014. However, the final arc is going to make things difficult to compute out. While the international version (subtitled ''The Final Chapters'') is set to be 69 episodes (down from 92, for a 25% reduction in length), the Japanese broadcast version was cut down even further to 61 episodes.[[note]]The Japanese broadcast version was created after the version for international distribution was already complete and includes a Japanese track for the eventual DVD release, so technically two ''Japanese'' versions of this arc exist as well.[[/note]] It's unclear what the Japanese home release for the Buu arc will look like at this point.

The majority of the original Japanese and English voice actors reprised their roles; Creator/MasakoNozawa returned as Goku's Japanese voice, while Creator/SeanSchemmel returned for the English dub. Creator/ChristopherSabat also directed the English dub by Creator/FUNimation.

** There's also a weird discrepancy with FUNimation's releases for ''The Final Chapters'', where, depending on what you use to play the discs, the English dub audio is improperly mixed, causing the sound effects to become muffled. Sabat has been made aware of this problem and has had the audio engineers at FUNi fix the problem for the TV airings, but it's not known if they'll do replacement discs for the people that bought the sets already. Depending on your viewer, you may not notice, but it ''is'' there.

* VindicatedByHistory: Due to what's mentioned below for the vocal evolutions of the English dub cast, as well as later dubs of ''Battle of Gods'' and ''Resurrection F'' and ''Super'', this series really helped fans of the series who loathed the original Z dub and/or the FUNimation cast to like them a ''lot'' more than the original dub.

* PowerLevels: Same as before involving the scouters, but they seem to have adjusted some bits of dialogue and how the whole process works to highlight the need for strategy along with their "combat rating." It was implied that although Goku had a higher power level than Nappa, if he actually focused, he could give Goku a good fight. A particular lampshade comes from Vegeta in his CurbStompBattle with Jeice:

** Is this in a next episode preview that this happens? Because I skip those and never heard anything like that from Goku.

* {{Retcon}}: At the end of the Cell Saga, [[spoiler: King Kai, Bubbles, and Gregory were revived along with everyone else wished back by the Dragon Balls in the ''Kai'' series finale. This is contrary to both the original anime where the wish only covered ''just'' the people on Earth and the manga where King Kai declined revival largely so that he could guide Goku around in Other World]]. As of episode 68 of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', this retcon didn't stick, [[spoiler: with King Kai, Bubbles and Gregory are still dead, and the plot was about bringing them back. [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption Goku failed to do so.]]]] (Is this in a next episode preview that this happens? Because I skip those and never heard anything like that from Goku.)

** For whatever reason, when Toei recut the Buu Saga footage, they both cropped the frames, as was done with the first half, but didn't bother saving 4:3 versions of the episodes, which will cause some weirdness when watching the entire show in the future, and added a green tint to the footage, which is often a point of contention amongst fans, as it sort of ruins the viewing experience for some.

** Also, if you look carefully during the opening sequence during ''The Final Chapters'', it looks like it was animated in 4:3, but then cropped or stretched to 16:9, due to some shots being weirdly framed, notably Babidi and Dabura's shot where Babidi's lower half cut off a bit and Majin Buu is weirdly framed as well when he appears in it. This could mean that either they were planning for the show to be in 4:3 for the start, or they animated it in that aspect ratio to save money, then cropped it, or at least certain shots.

** Each successive volume has its own singer (Creator/JustinCook for the 2nd volume, Creator/VicMignogna for the 3rd volume and in the Nicktoons version, Creator/GregAyres for the 4th volume, Creator/SonnyStrait for the 5th volume, and Creator/BrinaPalencia for the 6th volume).

** In the first episode, Linda Young still voiced Frieza, but when he appears later in the second arc, he's now voiced by Chris Ayres due to TheOtherDarrin being invoked.



** For the home media release of the series, and later dubs of movies and ''Super,'' both will retain their English dub names rather than their original Japanese names after their first uses.



** The series' openings tends shows major characters, villains, and events before they're introduced in the show itself. It's downplayed since this show is a recut of ''Dragon Ball Z'' and many longtime fans already knows these details.

* AgeLift: A minor example with Gohan. Likely due to the heavy AdaptionationDistillation detailed above, Gohan is only nine by the time of the Cell Games, as opposed to eleven in the original run, and as of the Buu Saga is sixteen rather than eighteen.
