We now know what Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama and Toei Animation have in mind for their next TV series. It’s been a while since Dragon Ball Super, but that show upped the ante to the point that the Dragon Balls were as large as planets, so where do you go from there? Apparently, you go smaller….a LOT smaller.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was the largest Dragon Ball movie ever, at least in terms of ticket sales. It hit #1 at the box office when it was released in August of last year, the first Dragon Ball movie to do so and one of the rare anime movies to reach that milestone in the US. It’s been quite a wait since then, but Crunchyroll just announced they are finally making the movie streamable for anyone with a subscription.
This weekend was a huge moment for anime that’s been a long time coming. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opened in US theaters this weekend, and won. We don’t mean it just did good numbers. We mean it hit #1. For the first time ever, an anime movie will be the movie that news reports will be mentioning when they recap the box office receipts (oh right, Pokemon: The First Movie technically beat it…ah, fudge it, this was an honest anime movie with no weird edits, so if you ask me, it was the first).
The official trailer for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero made its premiere at the Comic-Con panel for the film a few hours ago. In attendance were both Piccolos, Toshio Furukawa (Japanese) and Christopher R. Sabat (English) alongside producer Norihiro Hayashida.
You want more information on the next Dragon Ball Super movie, you got it. Toei swears they’ll return to the TV series eventually, but for now, they’re keeping the franchise burning with movies. The latest, Super Hero, is nearly done and we’ll be getting it pretty soon.
Believe it or not, despite Crunchyroll hyping itself as the ultimate anime app, there was no point when you could watch the entire Dragon Ball series on it — until now. The streamer has announced the acquisition of the complete rights, which means every Dragon Ball series is now available to watch there.
Android 21 debuted as the Final Boss Dragon Ball Fighters but she was only playable on her Majin form. Lab coat Android 21 will now be playable as she is the next DLC. She won’t be an alternate costume because she will be a stand-alone character instead. Her Human form has a different fighting style and her personality shows her personal struggle as she fights her urges to consume people.
Dragon Ball:Breakers is a asymmetric survival horror video game like Dead By Daylight and Resident Evil Resistance. An Asymmetric horror game is a genre where 1 Player will play the role of a killer while 3 to 4 helpless weak characters are played as Survivors. Dragon Ball is the last franchise to think about when it comes to a game of this genre. It is a Shonen Anime known for Martial Arts and Energy blast spamming. Dragon Ball does have powerful villains who are very scary for non combat characters. Instead of playing as Z-warriors like Goku, Vegeta, Picollo, Android 18, Gohan, etc… You will play as non combat characters like Woo Long and Bulma. Bulma may not be a warrior but she has always been the lead female character of the franchise. She invented the Dragon Radar, The Time Machine and other useful gadgets in the franchise.
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.
