Since “Battle of Gods” has surfaced in Japanese theaters, it has made a great deal of success. Cinema Today along with Box Office Mojo has reported that Battle of Gods reached a total of 2,181,328 in attendance and ¥2,668,081,600 in raw sales since its launch. It has been just one month since this movie has been released, and Toei Animation is still on pace to hit its original goal of 3 Billion Yen. Battle of Gods will remain in Japanese theaters for just one more week, and reaching that goal is very possible considering it is now the Golden Week. We can only hope that this great movie will make its way to the United States, and show us why it is producing these amazing numbers!
There has been a rumor polluting the internet that since Battle of Gods was so successful, Akira Toriyama is going to be working on a new Dragon Ball Series with 200+ episodes. This is just pollution, and is false information. On Kanzenshuu’s latest podcast it is fully explained as to why this is false information. Although many of you may be disappointed, the picture that has been polluting the internet with hopes of a new Dragon Ball series has been confirmed to be FALSE.
Here is a statement from Kanzenshuu:
This podcast episode is about using critical thinking skills to debunk rumors. There was no press conference, Akira Toriyama would not personally animate anything, and no new series is coming! Join us in the fight against bad Dragon Ball information.
