• Naohiro Shintani gained the role of character designer through an audition
• Character designs have been in the works since February 2017 with direct feedback from Akira Toriyama
• The looser design was created to emphasise the action within the film
• Toei have established 'Film Planning Department #3', dedicated primarily to Dragon Ball
• Yapiko Animation asked to help out on Dragon Ball Super, but because of scheduling issues, they were unable to.
Instead, Toei asked them to help with the movie
• External studios have finished the layout phase, and are currently doing key animation, implying the storyboard is complete (March 2018)

Quite exciting to know that key animation has already happened nearly nine months before the release of the film. I hope that the best key animators spend their full power on the film!

This movie has the potential to be the best Dragon Ball movie. Period.

Holy crap, this is phenomenal. AJ Styles level phenomenal.

Magnificent work, Ajay. :clap:

I have few questions:

1. Will you only update the thread with clips from the official home release of the movie or will you use HD clips and snippets released from the eventual trailers and TV spots that will be released for the movie?
2. With more information about the movie (inevitably) going to be released with the coming months until the movie's release, will you update the thread accordingly to that? Tidbits like characters designs, behind the scenes (animation staff involved) information about the movie and other miscellaneous information like that?
3. When you're done with this, will you update the main page of Super Animation Catalogue sometime this century?

Though I'm less than optimistic about the actual script for the film, I can at least say in full confidence that this has the most going for it in being called the best animated Dragonball films. The majority of early movies were either rushed under tight schedules, were ruined by awful animation direction in the case of the last two movies, or were horribly directed and storyboarded, as was more specifically the case with ROF.

To me, it seems they have made sure to carefully plan out the production of the film in order to make it the best it can possibly be, and considering the impressive staff, and the enthusiasm towards the project, I believe it easily has the potential to being the best animated and possibly best directed DB film ever.

I am so excited for this project as well, but I'm on the fence with whether or not I should follow the production too closely. I'm afraid that if will to get to know the various animators and their styles too well to the point I will recognized them as I watch it, it will distract me too much and mess with getting immersed in the story.

Either way, thanks so much for your work and contributions Ajay.

Knowing who does what will simply add more to the film. You'll get to know the humans and their feelings behind how they animate each cut. With the teaser we see that Oonishi Ryou doesn't really animated Gokuu as if he is confident, merely that Gokuu is excited for the moment. The way he bounces up and down and the way his clothes move have a feeling a tension different from stifling--it's a tension of a storm of joy brewing. Oonishi's the kind of animator that can use his humanistic timing to either create moments of dread and heartbreak or unbridled anticipation.

Oh, I am well aware of the benefits of looking at an animated work from a different perspective. I admire animation as an art form very much. It's just an added risk, that instead of simply registering Goku's playfulness as nothing but that, I'd start thinking of how it was done, who did it, and how it differs from other animators- as I said, it's a bit distracting.

Oh, who am I fooling. I'll be absorbing every bit of news about this movie that comes out.

I can answer the last question. Ajay said that he will be moving the Super Animation Catalogue to other website or the front page of Kannzenshuu.

I'm personally surprised that they are this far in development of the movie. I guess Toei is really taking this seriously.

This movie is already looking far better than the entire Dragon Ball Super series, imo.

I got off my ass an started catching back up with Pocket Monster: Sun & Moon today. Watching Episode #62 was an incredible blast because of Oohashi Aito's work as animation supervisor. We often talk about how the Nakano Satoshi and Yasuda Shuuhei designs are 'simpler' while forgetting to really hammer home that just because they're simpler it doesn't mean every drawing is lacking in detail. In fact, it's the simpler rules and lines for those designs that allow animators to go so gloriously off-model as was done in Episode #62. I really hope this is what Shintani Naohiro's designs will allow.

Has anyone tried to draw MUI in the new artstyle? The form is Shiny AF so Super's artstyle was better for it probably.

IMO it wont look that good in the new artstyle.

Whatever that was... I NEED more of it.

It's actually really good animation. It's making me more excited for all the talent being part of this new movie.

Can’t have a superb Dragonball Movie without the one and only Yuyu Takahashi right!? He IS recognised as the Nr. 1 animator currently. Natoshi Shida may be good - very good in fact. But Takahashi still remains at the top.

I'm sorry, but that's just your opinion. Takahashi is among my favourites as well, but there's a reason why they call him mini-Shida.

As far as animation goes, Shida is superior.

I feel Takahashi being overrated due to his artstyle. I've seen nothing from him that's as supurb as Shida's animation. Shida's scene on 130, for example was better than anything Takahashi did on Super and he has been very conservative with his animation on the show. His BOG cuts were FAR superior to anything I've seen Takahashi put out on any of the shows he worked on.

I'm shocked a French company is helping out. Well, technically I guess they're not French since they're based in Japan but got started by French people...
