New Song Lyric Translations: Video Games & “Battle of Gods”
Published by 30 January 2014, 11:11 AM EST

Shortly after launching the combined Kanzenshuu megasite, we added a wealth of lyrics from the “newer” Dragon Ball video game songs. Raging Blast 2‘s “Battle of Omega” was otherwise the last true new addition to the ever-expanding world of these songs, but a few stragglers have come along since then. The following songs have all been added to our “Lyrics” section with their original Japanese, romanizations, and English-translated lyrics:

Dragon Ball Heroes: Galaxy Mission Theme
Takayoshi Tanimoto and “Dragon Soul” contributed the original main theme to Dragon Ball Heroes and continued onward into the arcade game’s next upgrade: the “Galaxy Mission” updates.

Dragon Ball Heroes: Evil Dragon Mission Theme
The latest update to Dragon Ball Heroes moves into the “Evil Dragon” arc of Dragon Ball GT and beyond, and includes a new variation on the theme song.

The upcoming Jump-franchise crossover fighting game extravaganza, J-Stars Victory Vs, will be receiving an all-new opening theme song performed by Hironobu Kageyama (Dragon Ball Z), Hiroshi Kitadani (One Piece), and Akira Kushida (Kinnikuman/Toriko). The opening, composed by Toshiyuki Kishi with lyrics by Yuriko Mori, is very much in the shōnen vein, with lines about rivals, training, fighting, and victory, all over a hard-rock beat.

HERO ~Song of Hope~
While not actually a video game song, FLOW’s insert song from the new film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods was a surprise announcement after having been led to believe that the band would just be contributing a cover of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” to the film.

Enjoy singing along to some of your new favorite Dragon Ball-related tunes!
