Published by 10 December 2012, 8:45 PM EST

With all of the excitement over the upcoming 2013 Dragon Ball Z movie, Battle of Gods, we felt it would be appropriate to give it the huge coverage it deserves. In addition to checking in on the rest of this week’s news, we also dive in to your huge backlog of questions about the movie. Remember: Kanzenshuu is your one-stop-shop for everything Dragon Ball already, and furthermore for any and all information relating to Battle of Gods…!

While nothing is confirmed, plenty of fandom’s collective thoughts went straight back to some of Toriyama’s seemingly-random back-story additions in the Super Exciting Guide: Character Volume from 2009. We dive in to this material, translate out the necessary details, and attempt to extrapolate whatever we can in conjunction with the upcoming movie!

Episode #0317! VegettoEX and Hujio dive in to amazing news regarding the upcoming 2013 movie, “Battle of Gods”. We have an initial plot description and even a promotional trailer to dig into and tear apart, and combined with all of your questions about the movie, that fleshes out an entire show!


Enjoy! Discuss this episode on the Kanzenshuu forum.

    Thanks a lot for answering my question guys! 🙂

    I’d probably classify this movie as the first “full-length feature film” that officially follows the main storyline of the manga/anime (if it indeed ends up being longer than the older films)…

    I’d then take the older 13 movies and categorize them under the umbrella of whatever the event was they showed them at (I forget what it was called), and say that those particular movies were self-contained stories that do not follow the same continuity as the television series. Makes enough sense to me.

    I’m so happy you guys found the hidden “introduction” page; since then, I’ve been finding myself checking to see if/when the “story” portion will be uploaded.

    In terms of upcoming news I I hope to find out the answers to; the questions the movie’s toy tie-ins pose; like green Pilaf and that out-of-character-looking Vegeta.

    I am curious as to whether or not this movie will essentially fill all of the plot holes of GT. Perhaps have Goku and Vegeta hint at maybe trying to fuse, but it fails. Have a brief explanation of Gohan now using SSJ. Maybe even a brief mention of the black stars. That is if Toriyama recognizes GT as the true successor of Z and not as many others recognize as as much canon as some of the earlier movies.
