Comic-Con is here, and so are the Olympics! If you follow both it’s gonna be a noisy week. But be sure to make time for the Dragon Ball panel tomorrow. We know the anime is in sleep mode at the moment, with the latest incarnation (Super) on hiatus until the manga builds enough new material, but you never know what could be announced.
Here are the special guests: Masako Nozawa (voice of Son Goku in Japan), Akio Iyoku (Executive Producer of the Dragon Ball series, and editor for Akira Toriyama) and Norihiro Hayashida (Producer of TV animation and movies for the Dragon Ball series including the most recent project, Dragon Ball Super: Broly). They’re currently working on another Dragon Ball movie and will have stories to share from behind the scenes…and there’ll also be a special musical performance by Hironobu Kageyama.
“That’s all great,” you say, “but how can I attend?” You must have forgotten. This is Comic-Con@Home which means all the panels are virtual. You don’t need a ticket to San Diego to see this one, all you need is a computer. You can even watch it in your underpants (but ask permission first from any roommates that share your house). And when the panel is done, you can check out the Digital Dragon Ball Booth for an exhibit on the history of the series, the history of the Dragon Ball video games, and a lovely statue and figure collection.
Set your alarm for 10 AM Pacific / 1 PM Eastern tomorrow morning. SDCC 2021 takes place from July 23 to July 25.
