Discuss Dragon Ball Z Kai

Item: Dragon Ball Z Kai

Language: en

Type of Problem: Incorrect_content

Extra Details: Season 7 had the wrong information. I edited episodes 1 to 27 with the correct English Title and Summary. The Japanese titles were locked, but then I noticed later that they had changed to a number. Not sure why.

There is only 27 episodes in Season 7, so the rest need to be deleted.

(Originally, season 7 listed episodes from season 5).

I also am not able to edit the name of Season 2 and 3. Season 2 is "Frieza Saga" and Season 3 is "Androids Saga". I am also unable to add a summary of season 2 and 3.

I just now noticed that this has been reported multiple times in the past, and has not been resolved yet.

Wikipedia's page, list the season's correctly for the US release on Adult Swim / Toonami.

Win you look at Funimation's Blu-Ray Releases, They name it the Final Chapters Part 1, 2, and 3. Part 1 is Season 5, Part 2 is Season 6, and Part 3 is Season 7.

When you look at TV-Guide, they show the US Air Date, and Season 7 to be the same that the Wikipedia page shows.

TV Guide Dragon Ball Z Kai Season 7

TV Guide doesn't show the last 7 episodes because they haven't aired yet in the US.

What more evidence is needed to get this fixed?

It should actually be one season with 159 episodes. But the bigger issue is it's an alternative version of Dragon Ball Z and we currently do not support alternative versions.

edit: Correction: 158 episodes

Is that really an issue? They kinda released a new show with a different amount of epsiodes (if I'm not mistaken) so there shouldn't be a problem. I'd suggest we go with that single season an all epsiodes and build groups on that like we already did in Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Super.

It really is! We always remove alternative versions. But let me ask the big boss if we can keep the entries around until we figure out a better solution.

Good news, he approved the exception! smiley_cat

We should aim to clean up the episodes. I'll finish dealing with Dragon Ball first and then I'll evaluate the Kai situation. Hopefully, it won't be as much as a mess as Dragon Ball is/was.

@banana_girl could you please leave the Dragon Ball Z Kai Season structure as-is, but simply delete the excessive episode counts for Seasons 5 and 7? I use this site daily to pull in the Metadata for Plex and it's much cleaner with 7 rather than 2 season of 100+ episodes each.

Season 5: World Tournament Saga should end on episode 24 "Countdown to Revival, Crush Babidi’s Ambitions!" 8/3/2014; episodes 25 -69 should be removed since you already have them in Seasons 6 & 7 pages Season 7: Evil Buu Saga should be a total of 27 episodes; The episode names and descriptions are correct for ep. 1-27, but the thumbnails are from Season 5. Please update the thumbnails for those 27 episodes and remove 28-69, since ep 28 reverts back to season 6 with "I Will Deal with the Majin! Vegeta's Final Mortal Combat!" which doesn't make any sense.

I used the Wiki sources to help find the aforementioned errors for your team. Hopefully this makes your job easier!

That won't help. They are working on adding the group system to the API so Plex could fetch that data instead. This seasons chaos can't stay the way it is!

Ok, so I think I successfully "cleaned up" the seasons:

  • I remove Season 7. As @thedjjams pointed out in the report, they were created as duplicates of episodes already in the previous seasons.
  • I removed the extra German duplicates in Season 5.
  • I removed the episodes that were already in the Specials from the regular seasons. (These episodes didn't air as part of the original Japanese TV release.)
  • I quickly attempted to fix the translations of Season 5 and 6. But if any of you speak German or Spanish, would you mind double-checking to see if the translations match the original Japanese titles?
  • I removed a few specials episodes that were incorrectly added.

Oh and please don't freak out guys. The current (less than ideal) seasons are temporary. The data still needs to be merged. smiley_cat

The "English Saga" structure is not ideal for a few reasons. They are not in-line with our general TV guidelines. We always try to replicate how the series first aired on the original network. Sagas can be very subjectives, the info is often only available after the original airing, and different countries have very different sagas (just take a peek at the Japanese or the French Wiki). Because different contributors (often from different countries) want very different seasons, the data becomes very confusing and messy.

So we decided to follow the original Japanese airing. For example, the regular episodes of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Super are in a single season:

https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/12609-dragon-ball/season/1
https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/62715-dragon-ball-chou/season/1

And to accommodate the needs of all users, @travisbell recently built a really cool feature called "Episode Groups". It allow us to create as much alternative orders (sagas, TV seasons, DVD releases, TV cours, ...) as we need. You can see episodes groups we created for Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Super here:

https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/12609-dragon-ball/episode_groups
https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/62715-dragon-ball-chou/episode_groups

These groups are not yet available via the API , but they will be!! tada

Based on everything said, the way Dragon Ball Kai was originally in the database was based more on the American group.

Now you have corrected it to the original Japan airing.

Will you also be making the American group? Or will one of us need to do it?

Honestly, the seasons were a mix of many things. stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye But, yes, the general idea is that we want to change the data from American sagas point_right original Japanese TV airing.

The episodes are currently in the correct original Japanese order, but the seasons are still not right. That's something only @travisbell can fix.

Will you also be making the American group? Or will one of us need to do it?

It's probably safer to wait until the data is 100% fixed. We'll keep you guys updated. slight_smile

"However, the second part of the series, titled Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters by Toei Europe, lasted 61 episodes in Japan, which was fewer than the previously planned 69.[6][7] This brought the total number of episodes to 159 in Japan. The first Blu-ray and DVD compilation was released in Japan on September 18, 2009.[8][9] Individual volumes and Blu-ray box sets were released monthly.[10] France was the first international country to release all 167 episodes on Blu-ray and DVD, while the bypassed episodes remain unreleased in Japan."

So there were 8 episodes not aired in Japan, and therefore not listed? Where are these?

Hello @banana_girl !,

Since 2018, any idea if the fix that only travisbell travisbell could bring has been made or not ?

In the end, If I rely on the TMDB order and number of seasons which is 6 for the moment, is everything correct for you ?

I don't know... Travis, will you have some time to merge a couple of anime series soon?

In the meantime, I 100% recommend using an alternative order. If the episode groups get broken with the merge, we'll just fix them.
