Podcast Episode #0348
Published by 25 November 2013, 8:05 PM EST

Five years ago, Dragon Ball fans around the world received something perhaps more innovative and exciting than anything that has even come since: a global streaming initiative for the 2008 Jump Super Anime Tour SpecialHeya! Son Goku and Friends Return!! — which was freely viewable along with a selection of subtitles in various languages.


Since then, we have seen Dragon Ball Kai come and go (and come again in the near future), Dragon Ball Evolution whimper in and out, and most recently, Battle of Gods has proudly made its mark on the franchise. We wanted to go back to the 2008 special and see if it held up as well as it seemed to at the time, and how a repeated viewing of it may differ in light of Battle of Gods, especially with both features taking place during the same otherwise blank spot in the Dragon World’s history.

Episode #0348! VegettoEX, Meri, and Herms dive back into the 2008 Jump Super Anime Tour Special. Now that five years have passed since its original release, how does it hold up? Does the release and production style of “Battle of Gods” color our enjoyment of the 2008 special in any way? We let you know what we think, and you all do the same!
