Toei Animation’s official “Battle of Gods” website has posted its “Character” page, which was the last missing section of the site, and updated the existing “Cast/Staff” page with some of the main cast.

The “Character” page includes short profiles for each character, which are exactly the same as those published in promotional pamphlet handed out at Jump Festa ’13 and in the promotional packet given out to press outlets this last December. The characters listed include: Son Goku, Vegeta, Son Gohan, Trunks, Son Goten, Piccolo, Kuririn, Videl, Bulma, Yamcha, Tenshinhan, Mr. Satan, Buu, No. 18, Chiaotzu, Kame-Sen’nin, Oolong, Pu’er, Chi-Chi, Gyūmaō, Dende, Pilaf, Mai, Shuu, and Kaiō.

Two big entries splash the bottom of the page for the God of Destruction, “Birusu”, as well as “Uisu”:

The profile text for “Birusu” states that he is the God of Destruction that maintains the world’s balance and is a being feared by even the Kaiō and Kaiōshin, while “Uisu” is still only listed as a mysterious man working in league with “Birusu”.

We also have confirmation on the voice actors for each character, many of which have been up in the air until now. It appears that Yūko Minaguchi will indeed be returning to voice Videl, but perhaps the most pleasant news is the return of the original voice actress for Mai, Eiko Yamada, who did also return to reprise the role in the first episode of Dragon Ball GT. Since then she has worked on very few projects and essentially retired, so it is nice to see her return. Overall, the cast is mostly the same as it was in Dragon Ball Kai with the expected carry-overs from the likes of Hikaru Midorikawa (Tenshinhan), Ryūzaburō Ōtomo (Gyūmaō), Unshō Ishizuka (Mr. Satan), and even Aya Hirano (Dende). Kōzō Shioya will indeed return as Buu, a character from the story arc that has yet to be completed in the recently-revived Dragon Ball Kai, though he has also returned for every single video game.

Oddly enough, no voice actor has been listed yet for Chiaotzu. This may simply be an oversight on their part, as Hiroko Emori has been the only person to ever voice the character, even returning for Dragon Ball Kai and all of the recent video games. So far we have not seen any indication or reason why she may or may not return, but we will be sure to keep you posted.

All of the voice actors have been added to our own ongoing Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods page.

    “…[H]e is the God of Destruction that maintains the world’s balance and is a being feared by even the Kaiō and Kaiōshin…”

    Yeah, the Kaio were afraid of Freeza and the Kaioshin were afraid of Buu. Considering Birusu is more powerful than Vegetto (if the idea that he’s the most powerful anything ever is true), this isn’t exactly anything new.

    It is possible Chiaotzu simply won’t have any dialogue.

    Woot, finally some decent quality (albeit small) art of Kuririn’s new look!

    I wonder if there’s a way to rip the character icons from the page and check if Toei’s given any sort of transliteration of Burisu’s and Uisu’s names.

    Nope, nothing there. Page source just refers to files like “chara_thumb25″ in the pointers for each of them. Still out of luck :(.

    And they forget about Lunch once again. :( She was an awesome character in Dragonball, and she only made an appearance in like one episode at the beginning of Z and then forgotten before making a 1 second cameo at the end when Goku was gathering energy for the genkidama. Not really fair that they’re leaving her out yet again in this movie.
    They should make it so Android 17 and her appear out of nowhere kicking ass because they met eachother and are in a relationship after both tried to rob the same guy or something. :lol:
