And Julian sings.

The cover art for the second of the two upcoming Japanese CD sets has finally appeared online. The “BGM Collection” (3 CDs; ¥4500) is due out 22 February 2006.

HMV.co.jp has a track listing for this set, which may change before its final release. With that said, there is quite a lot of music from the Dragon Ball Z movies thrown on this set, which will make many people happy.

It appears that FUNimation plans to give Dragon Ball Z movie 12 (“Fusion Reborn”) a theatrical release in select theaters.

FUNimation has actually created a new website (“FUNimation Films“) for the purpose of “spreading the word”:

FUNimation Films is here and fans will find a great new way to enjoy their anime. Starting March 2006, you’ll be able to catch FUNimation’s biggest hits on the screen in feature length movies as well as special previews of the hottest series to come out of Japan before their DVD release. Each month will bring you a new movie or series premiere at your local theater. You’ll get the chance to get all your friends together to enjoy anime on the big screen!

FUNimation Films will be going nationwide in March at select theaters starting with a double feature of Dragon Ball Z Fusion Reborn and Dragon Ball Z The Return of Cooler. Following that, fans will get the opportunity to catch a sneak peek of the upcoming series Basilisk in April. Our first three months on the big screen will also feature Trinity Blood in May.

To help spread the word about anime on the big screen, FUNimation Films will be working with Operation Anime. If you’re involved with a club and want to get involved, make sure you’re a part!

So there you have it. It is a little late notice from FUNimation, but as soon as we know which theaters will be playing the movie, we will let you know. Thanks to Blitzen from the forum for letting us know about this.

We have some lovely pictures straight from Japan of the soon to be released “Dragon Box: The Movies” DVD set. In addition there are pictures of the Jump Memorial booth, the scouter transceivers, the Z Dragon Box individual discs, and the coolest diorama ever (which will actually be sent to those that purchase the first 18 volumes of the individual discs)! You can check out more pictures and information by reading “Yamcha & Oolong’s Diary Blog“.

Make sure to take a closer look at the scouter image, as you can actually see what the DVD discs for the movie set will look like.

The Jumpland DVD website has posted a computer screensaver to help promote the release of the Z Dragon Box individual discs. It is a pretty nice screen saver — it rotates through the upcoming disc releases, providing you with some corresponding information: episode listings, a release date countdown, website information, and of course high resolution pictures of the box art.

Be warned that the site and the install file are in Japanese, so it can be difficult to install — just click yes for everything!
