It’s not Blu-ray (or DVD) related but Kix TV, the Free-To-Air TV Channel that is currently available on Sky and Freesat, have today announced that new episodes of Dragon Ball Z Kai will be shown along with relatively new anime-based TV Series, Scan2Go.

Dragon Ball Z Kai was previously shown on a daily basis when it started airing last year until all of its alotted episodes, which ran until the end of the Frezia Saga, were shown. Since then Dragon Ball Z Kai has had a ‘limited’ run on the TV channel with episodes being shown mostly at weekends but from next week the series will return to the TV Channel.

Dragon Ball Z Kai will recommence airing on the 22nd July 2013 and according to listing’s it will be broadcast at 8:30am, 12pm and 8pm everday with the series starting from the very first episode and continuing straight through to the new episodes.

In addition to Dragon Ball Z Kai, the Japanese-Korean anime series Scan2Go (which is co-produced by D-Rights and aimed at a younger auidience) also starts on the 22nd July, with episodes being shown at 8am, 12:30pm, 3:3opm, 9:30pm and 10pm everday. The series itself is set in a futuristic universe whereby races involving the use of miniature automated toy cars and cards are played out. The english dub for Scan2Go was produced by Ocean Productions and Blue Water Studios and has previously been shown on Cartoon Network in America.

It seems like Kix TV, which can be viewed for FREE if you have a Sky Box (or Freesat Box) is the new destination for edited anime series on TV, as the channel is also currently showing Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and Digimon Data Squad.
