On a recent post at dblegends, it has been hinted that Battle of Gods will be screened in over 40 countries across the globe. We are fortunate enough to have Kanzenshuu to translate what Norihito Sumitomo, the composer Battle of Gods, stated on his official website:
At last, it’s the opening of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. The content has plenty to enjoy for children of course, but even adults, as well. It is truly a global-scale work, which (is/will be) shown in 40-plus countries around the world. By all means, please get yourselves out to the theater. You definitely won’t regret it. Please [check out] the soundtrack, too!
Although Norihito Sumitomo hinted at this about a month ago, not many people have this knowledge so this is big news!
Let’s hear your thoughts!
It has finally been confirmed that FUNimation is working on the Buu Saga for Dragon Ball Kai. We acquired this information from an interview with Sean Schemmel, the voice of Goku.
Here is the segment from his interview confirming this development:
Tell us about some of the projects you have been involved in. What is your favourite project to date?
“Well of course, the Dragonball series has a special place for me in my heart, but there are other projects that were more “fun” for a number of reasons. Kappa Mikey comes to mind, which was a parody about anime. Recording both the audiobooks “Shit My Dad Says” and “I Suck At Girls” was a total blast to work on because those books are hilarious. But most recently getting to play Batman/Bruce Wayne in the iPad game Batman The Dark Knight Rises by Gameloft was really really thrilling. I consider it a major career highlight. I’m currently working Yugioh Zexal and I am about to finish the Buu saga for DBZ Kai.”
Another statement worth mentioning is one of Kyle Herbert, the voice of adult Gohan.
Kyle Herbert recently posted this on his Facebook page:
Just got the blessing to announce I will be returning as Gohan for the Buu Saga of Dragonball Z Kai. No release or broadcast dates for now. For those who overlooked Kai because of the edits on TV, remember its UNCUT on DVD/blu ray. Pretty psyched to return to the role that began my VO career. Recording in a few weeks.
We are definitely enthusiastic about this new information, are you?
