Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ is a direct sequel to 2013’s Battle of Gods, bringing together a multitude of fan favourite characters in a battle to save the Earth from the resurrected Frieza.
The film took the number 1 spot in Japan, earning 40.3% more than Battle of Gods did in its opening weekend. Resurrection ‘F’ also hit cinemas in America last month and quickly surpassed the U.S. box office totals of Studio Ghibli’s Howl's Moving Castle and The Wind Rises, ranking 9th among all anime films released in the U.S. to date. The worldwide total for the film now stands at just over $60 million (Roughly £38 million).
Now, only a few weeks after the U.S. release it is hitting UK cinemas, giving you the chance to experience the film the way it was intended, on the big screen! So grab your friends, pull out your cosplays and book your tickets using the link below.

Remembering the anime master who shunned the limelight
Toshio Hirata, who died on 25th August, might be reasonably said to have avoided publicity. Over the course of his career, he did gather a number of credits for directing, as well as storyboards, key animation and lowlier tasks, but he often obscured his own achievements by using the pseudonym Sumiko Chiba. In some cases, such as for his work on Azuki-chan, he simply asked not to be credited at all, claiming that his contribution was not really worthy of recognition.
Andrew Osmond discovers that every little helps...
Scott Pilgrim vs the World, in a supermarket. Well, that’s one way of summing up Ben-To, a wild anime comedy in which ‘ordinary’ citizens engage in Matrix-sized brawls over the holy grail of living on a budget; the bargain half-price meal.
Hugh, phew, barneys and boobs, cutthroats, demons and blood...
If this show dropped all the extreme fan-service it would still be an exciting action-horror adventure, not far removed from an extended arc of Supernatural or the like. As it is, you get that and a show that would have broken the jiggle counter if anime DVDs still had them. After decades of evolution, even harem comedies can produce a show with some substance.
