But it's not something I feel like Toriyama would do.

Um, wasn't the two year long build up purely unintentional due to Oda essentially rewriting the entire movie?

Speaking of, said movie would require the heavy involvement of the original author (which is never going to happen). Maybe they can get whoever made the 2008 special so enjoyable. Otherwise it's going to be a wash.
Koyama Takao wrote the 2008 special, so getting him back for a film would be great, considering he was so heavily influential on the older series'.

I wouldn't really shoot for a Strong World-level movie, though. Shoot higher. :P

2010 - Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans
2011 - Episode of Bardock
2012 - ?

Don't feel like this has much to do with Dragon Ball but after thinking of the yearly specials it might have something to do with it, or not.

Yeah, six or nine. Strong World lacked punch, outside of a few funny jokes, and the animation wasn't quite as boundry-pushing. The key is to make not just any old movie, but to make a movie that pushes the audience's perception of the property and it's conventions. I think that's what a fresh start on Dragon Ball needs.

What about OP movie 7? That was OP at it's finest!

I'm so glad I don't have to be the one to make that joke. :)

Although, I do think a late-night Dragon Ball series that re-tells the story as a harem fan service series would be interesting...

Movie 6 is my favorite One Piece movie; it's the only one of all ten that I've re-watched multiple times. Same director as Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt through Time (also liked both of those) I'd be interested to see his take on a DB movie.


I got curious about the whole "people guessing the right series" so I did a twitter search for that "shonenjump_countdown" and google-translated each one listed there. Here's the page: https://twitter.com/#!/search?q=%23shonenjump_countdown
I realize this might not be the only tag floating around, but as I currently don't know the others, this is all I got.

Anyway! My final tally of title-drops by twitter users upon going through the whole page was:
One Piece - 2
Dragon Ball - 5
Doraemon - 1

So...maybe it is something DB-related?

Hosoda Mamoru worked on Dragon Ball Z before. :wink: He was key animator for episode #173 and Dragon Ball Z movies #8 and #10.

Then again, it's not really the style he's known for... :P

I forgot to mention that the movie is going be released in 2013 according to the rumor. But again, I highly doubt that it happens. If it really does, I'll eat my pants, wander around my city wearing Goku's dougi, and draw a doujinshi featuring DB girls.

No reason you can't do that now. ;)

Anyway, that's an interesting rumor, although I can't think of any significant Dragon Ball anniversaries that would occur in 2013, so it'd be interesting to see what sort of effort is placed into the project.

It's One Piece or Dragon Ball. I'm happy either way.

I'm going to hold you to that Kei :lol: I really do hope it's dragonball related or maybe it's Dragonball ''Hoshi'' :lol: :lol: I'm sorry guys I had to do it :lol:
The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128

I know that movie 6 is appreciated by fans for it's unusual style, both in animation and tone , yet I'm not sure that would fit with Dragon Ball. I love both The girl who leapt through time and Summer Wars (and the Digimon movie) so I'd love to see what he'd do with the DB franchise a director, but I think I'd prefer the animation style form OP movie 10.
