I sadly didn't know about that anime until' Toonami came out. Oh how I miss it so.. They brought it back in a less badass fashion. Or so I heard.
Tsk. Yes, Anime is amazing. I'm a fucking beast with that shit lol. And yeah, DBZ: Kai is what you're talking about right? It's not necessarily un-badass. It's different. No filler, straight story. It's weird.
