As seen on AnimeOnDVD.com, FUNimation has officially announced Dragon Ball Z movie 13 for a North American release on 22 August 2006. “Ryū-Ken Bakuhatsu!! Gokū ga Yaraneba Dare ga Yaru (“Dragon Fist Explosion!! If Goku Won’t Do It, Who Will?”) has been retitled to… well, “Wrath of the Dragon”.

Quite frankly, I am shocked we’re seeing this in 2006 — I was placing bets on 2006 finishing out with the re-release of DBZ movie 2, with movie 13 coming out in Spring 2007.

Two days ago, Japan saw a re-release of the two Dragon Ball GT “Perfect File” guide books. As far as we know they are the same as the original release with new covers (sort of — the original release did not have a “Volume 1” branding right on the first volume). You can pick these up at Amazon Japan for ¥600 each.

Toei has revealed the covers for their next three DVDs of the Z Dragon Box individual disc release. Each of these discs will contain six episodes, covering episodes 109 thru 126. These three DVDs are set to be released 26 April 2006, making them the second set of DVDs to be released in April. Unfortunately this means that there will be no releases in May. You can still order any of the released discs or pre-order any of these three discs at Amazon Japan.
