Woohoo! More News About The New Dragonball Special!

Post by Jerseymilk » Sun Jun 08, 2008 1:24 pm

This was just put up a few minutes ago an ANN's main page:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/20 ... d-in-japan

They've announced the full line-up now and mentioned this special will have an original concept by Toriyama. :D

The original source for the news is here if anyone is interested:

So it won't be a total crap, and perhaps it won't be all about Goku like how Toei loves to do with DBZ specials and GT.
Yamcha: Do you remember the spell to release him - do you know all the words?
Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!
Master Roshi: Bulma, I think Frieza failed because he wore too many clothes!

This is good news. But will it be backstory, or post Z stuff? Either way I'm all for it, and I hope Funimation gets the show. Sub or Dub I don't think it will be that bad.
Dragonball and One Piece are two totally different stories, except one author has a fanboy hard-on for another Author.

Is there any chance of us being able to see this? Is it being screened on TV, but only in certain areas, or screened on Theatres, or something of the like?

I'd really like to see this, but can't really afford to fly to Japan for it :P

Though, I wouldn't mind paying for a legal download, if one were available.

Squealing like a little shemale on heroin who just got kicked in the nuts.

I'm so psyched, Funimation HAS to get their hands on it some how, One Piece too!

Hell, I'd stoop to a pirate copy if it's unavailable any where but those ten cities.

The DragonBall one sounds pretty good. And the One Piece one sounds like it'll be Oda's original One Piece story Romance Dawn. It doesn't really fit into One Piece canon but I'd still watch it.

I think originally it was thought to be OP and DB having a crossover special, but this obviously disproves that theory.

Which is odd cause all the ads I have been seeing for the past few weeks have had Luffy and Goku with each other and no separate ad for the two. (Same with Bleach and Gintama.)

Two specials is better than one though.

Hopefully FUNi will grab both. Worth mentioning to them at a convention because I would be dammed if Toei tells them anything.

I really hope that Funimation dubs this and release it in America. Our best chances of getting that to happen are if we send civilized requests that voice our concerns. I think their e-mail and their forums are the best way to reach them.

I've sent them a nice little plead from my heart, also about Dragonball Z Gaiden, and included things like "The pirates are bootlegging them AS WE SPEEEEEEAK", though not said like that, and even indicated that there's a fandub by people imitating Funimation voices, under the name of Funnermation. That should make their monocles fall off of their faces! Bwahahaha!

I even put a Yours Sincerely, I NEVER do that in an Email, unless applying for a job.

An original concept by Toriyama is great news indeed. I'm hoping that it won't be a continuation to DBZ, or some lame backstory. I just want something that is fun and coherent, and non-canon.

I also wish FUNimation will get their hands on this eventually, but until then grabbing a fansub on the interwebs will be enough for me. Hell I'll even wait for a R2 DVD release.

The scan at muhyojo calls it a "new episode" with a "new story", so make of that what you will.

^Would that mean this new animation could be limited to only 22 minutes in lenght? :?:

I'd be all for some non-canon fun as long as Toriyama is involved. All the DBZ movies he's had a hand in were always really good, and the fact that this story is going to be done by him has me drooling.
Trying is the first step towards failure.

Maybe it'll bring Goku back to his family after ditching 'em with Uub. That would give me the closure on Dragonball I've always wanted :)

A New concept from Toriyama himself!? Damn, expectations just went through the goddamn roof! I wonder what it will be... What if scenario? The Mr. Satan & Mr. Buu comedy special he spoke of all those many years ago? XD

Very exciting time to be a fan!
