Toyotarō (henceforth “Toyo”): And mine!
Ooishi: In Dragon Ball, the ten years between the “Majin Boo arc” and the final chapter just go by, don’t they. During that time, there must have been a variety of things that went on with Goku & co.… I had figured as much, but just the fact that it’s showing us a piece of that, you could say it’s overwhelming!
Toyo: No, I want to see the battle scene one more time! I want to see it again right now. (laughs)
Vegeta’s efforts are the best. Especially that dance. (laughs) — by Naho Ooishi
Ooishi: Or rather, Beerus…!! (laughs)
Toyo: He’s just too strong!! (laughs)
Oooishi: He’s very Toriyama-sensei, a character where “simple is best”. Even so, I was surprised.
Toyo: I got goosebumps at “that secret” of that character in connection with “Super Saiyan God”.
Toyo: And the Pilaf gang, which will bring back memories for the fans, appears too. Especially, to think Mai would have that happen…! (laughs)
Ooishi: I suppose it might be her “first love”…? This is also one of those rare instances of “affection”.
Toyo: The parts that touch on the finer aspects of Dragon Ball’s history are wonderful, too! For me in particular, I was moved at how they hadn’t forgotten about Vegeta’s younger brother “Tarble”. The feeling of, “That means it’s after that episode,” [i.e., the 2008 Jump Super Anime Tour special] it just gave me goosebumps. (laughs)
Ooishi: And to think “that” person would be the key. “Affection” is depicted here, too.
Toyo: It’s definitely a major point to watch out for.
BEAT: What? This isn’t the battlefield… Where are we?
NOTE: Heh heh heh… we’re inside the movie Battle of Gods! It’s the first movie in 17 years… so we’re going to appear too!
BEAT: WHAA?! You can’t do that, Note!! We’re not supposed to be in this Age!
NOTE: Don’t say such uptight things! Look, the battle’s started!
BEERUS: Before creation, there is destruction!
NOTE: Now’s our chance! We’ll participate in the battle and appear in the movie, Beat-kun!
BEAT: Go- Goku-san?!
GOKU: Shhh! This is just getting good!
VEGETA: HOW DARE YOU STRIKE MY WIFE…!!!
GOKU: Oho! Looking good, Vegeta!
BEAT & NOTE: …
GOKU: Go, Vegeta!
NOTE: Um… shouldn’t you go help him?
GOKU: Hm? Ah… But it’ll be more dramatic if I wait until it gets a little more dire, won’t it?
NOTE: *exasperated sigh*
GOKU: Aw… so close!
NARRATION: Thus Beat & co. missed their chance to appear in the movie…
I want to rewatch the climactic battle right now, again and again…!! — by Toyotarō
Toyo: The climactic battle scene is just, really exciting. It’s worth seeing it once just for that. I also thought it was wonderful how it’s done so that such a wide age-range, from the new age that first learned of Dragon Ball through Dragon Ball Heroes, to the real-time generation, and even female fans of Vegeta as represented by Ooishi-san, will be able to enjoy seeing the movie! (laughs)
Ooishi: Vegeta’s dance is truly a must-see. (laughs) Also, the just unbelievably magnificent world!
Toyo: The world, or rather, the universe… (laughs)
Ooishi: See the movie as a family, and there’s no doubt that you’ll want to talk to each other about it afterwards!
Toyo: You’ll want to watch it one more time, even right away! Or rather, you’ll want to see a continuation!
Both: Thank you very much!
