Earthquake and Tsunami Follow-Up
Published by 15 March 2011, 8:43 PM EDT

Our hearts go out to everyone in Japan affected by the recent earthquake and its subsequent destruction. Many thanks go out to all of you who have shown such amazing generosity and caring, particularly for our own Julian. Rest assured, he and his family are safe and sound in Osaka, and can be heard on this week’s podcast episode (the little one even makes a special appearance!).

No doubt you have seen the image of support from Akira Toriyama himself, with Goku and Arale atop Kinto-Un. Ganbare, indeed!

Shueisha also included their own note wishing everyone a “speedy recovery”. In addition, Toriyama’s message was also posted as a set of wallpapers, which are available in two colors. You can download the wallpapers below, or you can grab them on the Shonen Jump website.

Due to these recent events, the “Dream 9” block was canceled this weekend. While we now know that rebroadcasts of Dragon Ball Kai have a replaced score using Shunsuke Kikuchi’s original music from Dragon Ball Z, the first “new” episode since the BGM scandal broke last week has been delayed, though it sounds as if things are all being pushed back just one week.
