Another new book is being released entitled “Dragon Ball Forever.” Here is a translation of what you will find over on its respective page:
Announcing the results of the popular vote!
The best bouts, best characters, and best items in DB Kanzenban vols. 1-34 are published!
Toriyama- sensei‘s interview is also completed!
Sensei tells in super-detail the secret stories of his work. The characters’ roots will become clear, as well!!
There’s also a full load of detailed data!
With an illustrated book of all the characters and items, you’ll be able to enjoy every little corner of DB!
Deluxe stickers are also going to be included!
Reappearance of the covers to kanzenban vols. 1-34, on stickers!
It is assumed there will also be a story guide for kanzenban volumes 23-34, with the other (final) seven “Dragon Ball Children” images drawn by other artists.
Shueshia also has a contest going on (bottom right of the page) where you can win one of 500 boxes to hold all 36 books in the series (34 volumes + “Landmark” and “Forever” books). You will need to cut out one of the application forms from the wraparound ads that come with volumes 33, 34, and “Forever” — stick it onto a postcard with your name, address, age, phone number, and the words “Dragon Ball” (since they are also doing a “Slam Dunk” promotion), and mail it off to the address at the bottom of the ad.
Colin from San Diego, California is starting up an indie-rock band called The Red Ribbon Army. Check out his PureVolume page; he has a song up called “The Four Agreements” that you can listen to.
Special thanks to Sean Foster for the following check-in from the FUNimation panel at MegaCon this past weekend. Some interesting news:
Special thanks to Joseph Bautista for passing along a link to a thread on IGN with tons of images from “Dragon Ball Z 2” and some promo stuff from “Dragon Ball Z 2 V” (the upcoming expansion/bonus version of the game in conjunction with V-Jump), with images of the new “Dragon World” stage (featuring Onio and Neko Majin Z), some new outfits, Kuriza, Coola / Metal Coola, etc. Awesome stuff.
The Magic Box has released some images from the upcoming “Dragon Ball Z 2 V” expansion disc (remember, “Dragon Ball Z 2” is the Japanese version of “Budokai 2”; the “V” comes from V-Jump, Shueisha’s Japanese video game magazine under the “Jump” brand).
Bandai announced DragonBall Z 2 V (the “V” stands for V-Jump, a Japanese manga magazine) for PlayStation 2, an upgrade to DragonBall Z 2 (DragonBall Z Budokai 2). The game will feature brand new fighters from the DragonBall Z movies, plus several new fusion characters, such as Kuura, Cubit, Gokutan (Goku + Satan) and Potana. DragonBall Z 2 V is scheduled to release in Japan in April.
The upgrade looks to have at least Coola (and Metal Coola) as a playable character, plus some of the bonus fusions (Yamhan / Tiencha, Gotan / Gokule, Kibitoshin). The screens also seem to confirm a special “V-Jump” version of the Tenka-ichi Budōkai ring, as well.
Included with my latest batch of kanzenban stuff were some images of the upcoming Japanese Dragon Ball DVD “Dragon Box”. Take a look below at how the box and discs will look, as well as a shot of the Tenka-ichi Budōkai Diorama Set that will come with it (including more figures in addition to Goku and Kuririn).
Looks cool. Too bad I don’t have a spare ¥100,000 to fork over.
The Magic Box has posted some new information from Atari. On 29 June 2004, “Dragon Ball Z: Super Sonic” will be released on the GameBoy Advance — this will be a new RPG (no word on any relation it may have to the “Legacy of Goku” series).
Also, there is “unconfirmed” news that “Budokai 2” will hit the GameCube in August of this year (also, no word on whether or not it will have any of the Japanese version’s extras, but it is unlikely).
If you have been reading “Neko Majin Z”, no doubt you have become familiar with Kuriza, Freeza’s son. He is making another appearance in the third “Neko Majin Z” chapter, but that is not all…
Our old buddy Greg Werner, who is hiding out in the streets of Japan, sent us over two pictures of Kuriza popping up in “Budokai 2”! Unfortunately, he is only in the Japanese version of the game (called, simply, “DragonBall Z 2”). Here are the pics (taken on his cell phone):
