Like everyone else, I can feel my excitement boiling over. It's a bit more of a rush than I'd normally have in this situation because I actually managed to keep my expectations at zero for once, and now it's skyrocketed thanks to almost-guaranteed-to-be-Shenlong's silhouette.

PS. I want photographic proof. But I'll let you get away with shorts instead of pants... =P

O.....kaaaaay?

So here we are, all going "Oh I'm sure it has nothing to do with DB, we are all sensible and understand that the chances are really small " and then they do this......

I just hope that if it IS DB related, it really is going to be something big like a movie and not a new game or little manga special.

I highly doubt it would be a game announcement, as we're already getting Dragon Ball for Kinect and the Budokai HD collection this year.

I'm hoping it's the Buu arc in one long completely reanimated movie.

I've been thinking about this too. I mean , personally I hope not, because I'd prefer a new story, but this does make sense.

...I'd rather have NEW content.

Maybe make a story out of some of the stuff Heroes has introduced us to, or give me the DBO final fight between Goku and Vegeta. Both unlikely, but I'd kill for the last one. lol

Doesn't the fact that's from Shounen JUMP mean it's likely a manga?

I'll continue to hope for new DB chapters drawn and written by AT himself until the day he dies :D

It's obviously a reanimating of Goku's Traffic Safety into a four hour epic, a collaboration between Toei and Studio Bones.

Music by Nathan Johnson.

Or maybe it's that live-action Dr. Slump movie that nobody's been waiting for ever.

The victim of violent head trauma as an infant [...] he's a simple bumpkin with a fair share of brain damage who's natural talents to work out what's wrong compensate for his broad lack of common sense. But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

Why would Shueshia be counting down to a video game reveal? That's Scamco's job.

Maybe that rumor of Toriyama doing a new DB manga to be serialized worldwide is real !?! Maybe it's a new movie that has heavy Toriyama involvement like those Naruto and One Piece movies?

I haven't been this excited since the announcement of Kai.

If something is truly perfect, that's IT! The bottom line becomes there is no room for imagination! No space for intelligence or ability or improvement! Do you understand? To men of science like us, perfection is a dead end, a condition of hopelessness. Always strive to be better than anything that came before you but not perfect! Scientist's agonize over the attempt to achieve perfection! That's the kind of creatures we are! We take joy in trying to exceed our grasp, in trying to reach for something that in the end, we have to admit may in fact be unreachable!"

It was an old one from before SD began running.

Edit: So I dug around the flash file (I added a drop shadow to make it more apparent):

There's no doubt that's Shenron.

Hopes are officially sky-high now.

I really hope it's new content (whatever it is), but I'll settle with a Buu arc movie if it's that. Though, thb, movies that tried to condense an entire arc in one movie is tricky business. They'll have to skip through a tone of stuff or rush things at an unpleasant pace.
