Dragon Ball Super: Coming Soon...

Tuesday 28th April 2015


DRAGON BALL SUPER: COMING SOONToei Animation has announced production on Dragon Ball Super, the first all-new Dragon Ball series to be released in 18 years. Following the recent events of the hit feature film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection, Dragon Ball Super will debut in July 2015 in Japan.

Reuniting the franchise’s iconic characters, Dragon Ball Super will follow the aftermath of Gku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain Earth’s fragile peace. Overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama, and produced with Fuji Television, Dragon Ball Super will draw on its historical past to create a bold new universe, welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers.

“Having loved Dragon Ball since childhood, it is very exciting to be part of this project,” said Osamu Nozaki, producer for Fuji television. “Mr Toriyama has developed a plot that’s not only a dream come true for Dragon Ball’s millions of fans, but one that will foster in a new generation of viewers.”

“I’ve used the word ‘cho’ (super) in so many commercials, games and other media, it’s fantastic that the long awaited Dragon Ball Super will finally begin,” said Masako Nozawa, the Japanese voice actress of Dragon Ball’s Son Goku. Son Gohan and Son Goten. “I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor.”

Earlier Dragon Ball serials are already available on UK DVD from Manga Entertainment.

Goku's epic journey begins here!
Goku may be small, but this fearless warrior packs a punch as powerful as any on the planet. Left alone after his grandfather's death, this unusual boy is happy to spend his days hunting and eating and eating some more. But everything changes on the day he meets Bulma - a bossy, blue-haired beauty with boys on the brain. Together, they set out to track down the seven magic Dragon Balls and make the wish that will change their lives forever.
And that's just the beginning! Goku also spends some time on Turtle Island where he and Krillin study martial arts under the legendary Master Roshi. The old hermit may not look like much, but if his new pupils can find him a woman, he'll make sure they're ready to rumble at the upcoming World Martial Arts Tournament!

On the Origin of Sushi

Tom Smith investigates the evolution of Japan’s best-loved fast food.
Sushi is serious business. Thought to be healthy, fresh and hip, the combination of vinegared rice with various toppings (notably fish) has become the food associated with Japan, and its history there stretches back almost as far as the country’s writing system. But if you thought the iconic delicacy was Japanese in origin – or even fresh for that matter – hold on to your chopsticks.

RWBY

Hugh David on the full monty
Asian-American animator Monty Oum passed away tragically on the 1st February this year at the age of 33. RWBY (pronounced Ruby, the lead character’s name, but also an acronym of the four lead characters) is his legacy, a fully CG-animated web series that is as close to anime as a series made outside of Japan can be, so much so that Warner Bros Japan have bought it to dub and release locally.
The roller-coaster of emotion that is Golden Time comes to an end this month with the release of the second collection, and it has been a ride to remember.
