Let me ask you a question folks. We all watch various kinds of animations, and games. so let me ask you.
Why watch a remake?
First off the original is perfected, and duh being in RGB with high grade quality hardware, really can't get you anywhere else.
So some idiot decides to flow with the wide screen crap, and sell the REMAKE ( redo everything ) in a wide screen format. Of course they have to edit everything else. Not only that sometimes they do not remake anything else.
I AM JUST MENTIONING THIS BECAUSE.
Before I die, I want somebody to carry out my fact. When I die, and all the people who actually understands the difference between a
and everybody starts buying data
Like the above example, without the prymid effect, your practically buying nothing at all, but information currency. Think about it like buying a car, but without owning the real car.
However now you are buying episodes that arent even in any real casing at all, but remade, and rehashed, series. Considerating a conversion.
For game systems I can understand but for animations I cannot. You watched something already, and now they just set you up to watch the same thing over again?

Remakes can be amazing - but they can also be just as you said. Stupid. Pointless... but you can't judge so widely so simply.
DBK is a great example. Don't get me wrong, I've watched all of Dragon Ball Z . . . but it's filler-city. Dragon Ball Kai may cut some of the most hilarious episodes (Learn to drive Goku, for everlasting peace!) but it also cuts to the point, and doesn't show off scenery for five hours before someone throws a punch. Battles have ENERGY.
At the same time... there are some niggles even with DBK. The recolored cells were done very lazily. My friends and I have a habit of screaming "REDRAWN!" whenever one pops up. Yes, they had issues originally, but its like photoshopping Kennedy into mount rushmore without adjusting the lighting. Shoddy, annoying, and shows that to them the project was more to make a buck.
Which is fine, but worth keeping in mind that sometimes buying remakes, buying into remakes, help support riskier content
Reamkes are not bad. For example,the new Speed Racer was great,and new Lodoss is cool,too. I know it is a comic,but I hope they do a new Tintin series,with the movie near. Oh,and want to see new Spiderman series,too.
