With 41 days remaining until the film’s debut, the official blog to promote Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” has updated with a few words from Masaharu Satō, the current voice actor for your friendly neighborhood turtle hermit, Kame-Sen’nin:






Hello! Bulma here!
Just 41 days left until the movie opens!
Today we’ve got a comment from the voice of Kame-Sen’nin, Masaharu Satō!

I was really looking forward to making another movie. Although Toriyama’s works have lots of fighting in them, beneath it all they’re actually quite gentle…or rather, they have an amazingly light-hearted and gentle worldview. I suppose Dr. Slump is the source of that, and it’s very refreshing.

Something that stands out this time around is seeing Kame-Sen’nin go from “puff-puff” to “hiya!” (laughs).  One of the highlights of the battle scenes for me was Kame-Sen’nin looking all cool but then having to take a bit of a rest, since he is over the hill after all (laughs). It felt like I got the best part there.

With Freeza back to life, this is Kame-Sen’nin’s first time meeting him face-to-face.  When it comes down to it, “puff-puffs” are more my area of expertise, and I was cast to handle the light and breezy stuff, so suddenly having to play a strong fighter was pretty tough.

This time I got to perform an old-school “Kamehameha” (laughs). It was a lot of fun to go “this is a Kamehameha!” And check out the big and beefy version of Kame-Sen’nin (laughs).

I think you’ll all really enjoy this second movie. It’s a lot of fun.


The story for Revival of “F”, opening nationwide in Japan 18 April 2015 in 2D and IMAX 3D, is being crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama, who stated he is writing it, “…as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization,” and that while it will, “…of course be a continuation of the previous Battle of Gods,” he has also, “…deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal.” Tadayoshi Yamamuro, who worked for many years as character designer and animation supervisor on the Dragon Ball franchise, will serve as the film’s director and animation supervisor. Norihito Sumitomo will return from Battle of Gods and the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai for musical composition duties. Momoiro Clover Z will contribute a song alongside Maximum the Hormone, whose “F” will be used as a “battle song” during the film. Revival of “F” is set to bring back Freeza and will also include two new characters (Sorbet and Tagoma), feature Beerus and Whis again from Battle of Gods, and much more.

We will continue to keep tabs on this blog and translate whatever news it reveals, so stay tuned…!
