Back in 2009, a Los Angeles/Mexico-based company by the name of “Magic Sound Records” released what they claimed to be “official” Spanish versions of Dragon Ball Kai songs. Toei’s Latin America marketing director, Eduardo Lucio, called Anghelo out as a “pirate”, going on to state:
At the moment, there’s no authorization that allows the existence of any official product.
It seems Magic Sound Records and Anghelo are at it again, this time releasing a Spanish version of the Dragon Ball Kai Majin Boo arc opening theme, “Kuu-Zen-Zetsu-Go”:
The same individuals released a version of FLOW’s “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” from the film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods last year, as well.
When the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai hits international markets, if the Korean version is any indication, “Kuu-Zen-Zetsu-Go” will not even be used as the opening theme. Instead, a completely different Japanese-produced song named “Fight it out” will be used.
Thanks to @JetJagg for the heads-up!
What’s a little thing like copyright law to stand in the way of a man’s desire to sing Dragon Ball songs?
Shine on you crazy star, shine on!
This is getting….well, OK, it’s not “getting” weird, it was weird a long time ago. I’m just surprised that he hasn’t been sued yet.
