August 31st is a day many folks from today’s generation of fans will remember back in 1998 — it was the day that Dragon Ball Z began airing on Cartoon Network.

However, August 31st of 2003 is a day of much brighter prospects. According to Anime Nation, Pioneer has announced that their distribution license to Dragon Ball Z will expire on this day.
