"This year's 11th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump will announce on Monday that Dragon Ball Z will rerun on Fuji TV's Japanese network of affiliates in HD starting on April 5. The rebroadcast will feature the "latest digital technology" for HD remastering, new versions of the opening and ending themes with re-recorded sound and re-edited animation, and a new voice recording from the cast led by Son Goku's Masako Nozawa. This April marks the 20th anniversary of the original broadcast in Japan.

James Wong and 20th Century Fox's live-action film adaptation of Akira Toriyama's original Dragonball manga will open in Japan on March 13, and will then open in America on April 8. Funimation had commissioned a remastering of the Dragon Ball Z anime series for its recent DVD box set releases. "

So that's what it was about! I've heard words about a DBZ anime renewal project some time last summer on moon phase. But since the source was in Japanese, therefore I didn't followup with the development and forgot about it. Thanks for sharing!

Nope not really...

Your weren't growing up during the time when Dragon Ball Z was still airing. So its reasonable for you not to feel any nostalgia for the series.

If your not actually 14, it still doesn't make you weird, obviously animes like DBZ aren't your cup of tea.

This information according to this site http://daizex.com/

- The DBZ TV series is receiving an extensive "refresh" for Japanese television airing

- This is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of DBZ

- While based on the original animation production, it is being updated with new technology

- This includes extending the frames for formatting on an HD 16:9 display (note: not cropping the image)

- The original Japanese cast is re-grouping to re-voice the show (where available, and unfortunately not including those that have passed on, such as Hirotaka Suzuoki [Tenshinhan])

- Sound effects are being updated

- Unlike the general show, the OPs and EDs are being completely redone

- While not in the above announcement, other reports are noting that the number of episodes is being reduced from 291 to approximately 100

- This begins 05 April 2009 @ 9 am
