DB 30th: Super Saiyan Special Site

Post by TheDevilsCorpse » Wed Nov 19, 2014 9:56 am

So this is a thing for the 30th anniversary of the series. Other than that though, I have very little to say in the opening post because I don't speak the language...

I guess "SSSS" is no longer the "Saikyō Super Saiyan Secret" project.

This it's neat. Wonder what they're going to do with it.

It even has a message from Akira Toriyama.

Looks like it's trying to go for an "official news & series information site" sort of thing, like a fansite but with Toriyama's stamp of approval (and also the promotional interests of the companies involved at heart, I'm sure).

We also now, excited to Goku a big adventure, is obsessed with their story.
Chrome's translation of this pretty rough. Haha.

The link to "books" is a picture of child Kuririn holding out that H magazine.

Forgive my naivete, but is this thing official in any way, by any chance?

It is, or at least seems to be. There is a comment from Toriyama, a V-Jump logo and all the other legal stuff for Shueisha and Bird Studios on the site.
I wouldn't have posted about it if it was an obvious fan thing, but that's just me.

Well, bring on 2016. That's the 30th anniversary of the DB anime. Still a small chance for a Dragon Ball Kai covering the beginning. Of course, then I'd have to keep my promise and eat my hat.

Cool site, I wonder what we will get for the anniversary outside of new game and the movie.
Those lotery prizes are damn awesome! Really, usually the Japanese merchandise acompanying something like BOG for example, was pretty lame. It's this cheap stuff like pencils with the characters and soda pop with pictures or themed food,
is pretty lame. But here I liked almost everything.

The site has been updated.

Has anyone translated the comment from Toriyama yet?

Sounds like he's praising the site and the information found on it.
Dumped it for someone who might be able to translate it better than I can.
The kanji should be right, but double check to be sure. I haven't seen two of them before.

We'll obviously have our full translation and coverage soon... just gotta recover a bit from our own celebratory launch :).

Blooma's jacket says 'Bloomers'! One more official Romanization to add to the list!

You sure it doesn't just say "Bloomer"? Looks like there are only 7 letters to me: Bloo-mer.

Anyway, it's nice to see the artwork from the Dragon Box singles' special diorama in nice quality on the internet. I only remember being able to find the second one in decent quality.

So it's possible "blooma" can work like "brief" in that in can have an S a the end?

I really like the added texture/depth Toriyama gives Gokû's hair nowadays. X3

It may have just gone up on the site as part of their New Year's message, but that image of Bloomer and co is nothing new. I think it was first produced to go with the Dragon Box singles.
