As we reported last night, Toei Animation’s official “Battle of Gods” website was revamped yesterday; however, the majority of the new sections have not yet gone live. Thanks to some fun URL guessing, we have stumbled across the website’s new “Introduction” section that is not yet linked in the navigation, but is indeed live and available to the public. The page provides an introduction to the series (all of which we have seen numerous times already), the special note from Akira Toriyama that was previously posted on the official site, and of course what many fans have been clamoring for: a brief synopsis of the movie. Unfortunately the page is in Japanese only, but fret not, for we have diligently translated it for you!

鳥山明参戦。
オールスターキャストで蘇る本物の「ドラゴンボール」更に、この歴史的プロジェクトに、原作者の鳥山明が原作・ストーリー・キャラクターデザインとして名を連ねる。

描かれるのは、全宇宙の運命を賭けた魔人ブウとの壮絶な戦いから数年後の物語。全宇宙のバランスを保つ破壊の神・ビルスが長い眠りから目覚めてしまった!フリーザを倒したというサイヤ人の噂を聞きつけて、悟空の元へやって来るビルス。久々に現れた強敵を前にワクワクする悟空は、界王の忠告も無視してビルスに戦いを挑むが、その圧倒的なパワーを前に手も足も出ずに敗れてしまう。「地球にはもっと破壊しがいのあるヤツがいるといい…」不気味な言葉を残してビルスはその場を去っていった…果たして悟空たちは破壊の神を止めることができるのか!?


Akira Toriyama Joins the Battle.
Not only is the real “Dragon Ball” being resurrected with an all-star cast, but what’s more, for this historic project the original author Akira Toriyama is involved with the original work, story, and character design.

The story takes place several years after the titanic battle with Majin Buu, that determined the fate of the entire universe. Bils, the God of Destruction who maintains the balance of the universe, awakens from a long slumber! Hearing rumors that a Saiyan defeated Freeza, Bils tracks down Goku. Goku is so ecstatic that a tough enemy has appeared after such a long time, he ignores Kaiō’s advice and fights Bils, but cannot do a thing against his overwhelming power and is defeated. Bils leaves, but his eerie remark of “Is there nobody on Earth more worthy to destroy…?” lingers on… Can Goku and co. really stop the God of Destruction?!

While there is still much left to be desired, it is at least a great starting point for fan speculation. We still do not know yet what role Whis will play — is he the one who tells Bils of Freeza’s defeat? Where do Whis and Bils come from exactly, and why was Bils asleep this whole time? All-in-all, it is a great time to be a speculative Dragon Ball fanboy! So be sure to check Kanzenshuu for the latest movie news and updates — we’ve got you covered!

    And now sites everywhere are saying that the official site of the movie was updated, without knowing it was actually Kanzenshuu’s game of “guess the link” that managed to leak this information. :roll:
    Great work guys! You truly are the best Dragon Ball site around, and it is because of your dedication. Keep up the great work!

    Thank you so much for the translation!

    I definitely feel like there’s more details to Goku vs Bils, Goku loses, than the summary lets on. Like “What were the stakes of the battle? What are the repercussions of Goku losing? What kinds of magical powers does Bils have? I can see why Toei wouldn’t want to spoiler everything though.
