The American-produced Dragon Ball Evolution live action movie is receiving its second reduced-price DVD reissue in Japan this holiday season. Originally released to home video in summer 2009, the first reissue (with changed cover art pulled from the North American / international releases) came 02 September 2010. This new reissue appears to be the exact same thing as the last one — same cover art, same price (￥1,419), same everything — and will drop 05 December 2012.
We reviewed the movie on our podcast immediately following its Japanese theatrical debut, then again after its North American debut, and even dived into the material to pull apart all of the fun differences and changes. What we have not done yet is actually review the Japanese dub of the movie (featuring such actors as Kappei Yamaguchi and Aya Hirano). The previous Japanese DVD reissue is sitting on my shelf — it may be time to crack that bad boy open…!
