Some of Dragon Ball Kai’s animated ‘updates’ were not given as an art choice

The nature of the updates applied to “Dragon Ball Kai” is multifaceted. First, the visible damage to the original anime’s frame was reduced with the help of selective cropping. After cropping, the broadcasted episodes will vary in aspect ratio based on the device used and the country of release. For example, the first 98 episodes of “Dragon Ball Kai” are available in 4:3 on home video in select countries, although the standard ratio for completed episodes is 16:9.

While all of these changes contributed to the popularity of “Dragon Ball Kai,” fans couldn’t help but notice a difference in art/animation style as the series progressed. Although seasons 1 through 4 mostly featured redraw material, the remaining seasons only featured upgraded versions of the “DBZ” anime. In the interview linked above, Hayashida explains that this was done because a certain animation technique was banned by the government at the time (interview published in 2016):

“Ten years ago, the Japanese government banned certain ways of producing cartoons because they could harm the eyes. There is a technique based on alternating black and white values ​​to add movement to an image. static is no longer allowed. So what the animators will do is take the original footage and redo any scenes that are unusable because of the situation.”

To account for Hayashida’s claims, the redraw technique was the result of a ban on the animation style, but after it was lifted, the people who worked on the sequels used “a combination of animation and animation.” digital image and cel.” While the original cel animation from “DBZ” is used, the frames have been digitally enhanced without any hand-drawing techniques used throughout sections 1 to 4.
