Toriyama confirmed in the magazine that this new film, likelast year's Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, will tell a new story. He had intended to have this story during his manga's original serialization. Although he did not plan on it, he is not only putting a lot of effort in drawing the art, but also "fussing over the smallest dialogue lines." He also promised more action scenes. »
Since the onset of soft filters, much of Hollywood has been trying to pretend time doesn’t exist. Whether it’s through make up, recasting or good old plastic surgery, you either stay young on the Sunset Strip, or you die trying. The bright and youthful must remain bright and youthful; the audience must never be broken from its idealized, Photoshopped reverie. The linear passage of time has irked many a Hollywood director, but Richard Linklater isn’t a Hollywood director, he just wants to make movies.
There is no sweeping Father Time under the rug when Linklater’s around. Most notably, his Before Trilogy chronicled the ups and downs of a couple across a span of three decades – wrinkles, warts and all. But where our time with Jesse and Celine was but small insights into the story of two people growing slowly old together, Boyhood is more of an »

Dragon Ball z is perhaps the most well known anime in existence. Even those unfamiliar with the inner workings of the franchise can probably recognise a name, character, or internet meme relating to the show. What may surprise some is that the show ended nearly 20 years ago, 11 if you want to go by the dub, and there hasn’t been a Dragon Ball movie in 17 years. Nope, not a single Dragon Ball movie anywhere…in existence…didn’t happen. However fans can now rejoice with FUNimation’s announcement that the latest film, Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of The Gods, is to hit 350 screens across the Us this August.
The film sees Beerus, a powerful god of destruction, who rises to search out and take on Goku. Of course our heroes must join in the fight before the Earth is destroyed. The story comes from Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama, »

It's been seventeen years for us, but only months for the 'Dragon Ball Z' cast. Which, if you know anything about the formatting of this soap opera for tweens, seems right on schedule. 'DragonBall Z: Battle of the Gods' picks up right where we left off. If you haven't recently binge-watched the show (because really who has time to watch Goku shout 'Kamehameha!!!' while charging up his lasers for six hours these days?) when we last left our heroes, they'd just defeated Majin Buu. Destroying such a worthy foe summons this giant hairless cat named Beerus from his slumber. Because cats are assholes, Beerus wants to destroy Earth in order to provoke Goku into joining him in glorious battle…and I assume thus alleviate his boredom. Basically Beerus is treating the Z-fighters with all the respect my cat gives a hair tie he found under the fridge. »

I'm not going to lie here, while it's been some time since I've been heavy into Anime, I can't deny my deep desire to see new Dragon Ball Z stuff. It's among my favorite shows and something I watched vehemently when I was younger. Fans got a treat in a form of an all new movie, bringing the classic characters to a modern generation of fans. Sadly, it only released over in Japan, but now it's coming to the States for a limited theatrical run (on August 5, 6, 7, & 9). If you've been eagerly awaiting this new film, »

It’s hard to imagine a Dragon Ball Z game being more intense than the Budokai fighting series on PS2. Or at least, it was — until I visited Namco Bandai’s booth at E3 this year. Within ten minutes of checking out the new Dragon Ball game, it became abundantly clear than my imagination deserved to be punished not only for lack of ingenuity, but for underestimating Dragon Ball Z in general. With this series, the creators are always raising the chaos ceiling and turning things up just one more notch, and I should know that. It’s a mistake I won’t make again.
The new game is called Dragon Ball Xenoverse, and if you take the complete and utter turmoil of the PlayStation 2’s Budokai 3 and flip it on its head once or twice (after upping the ante at least three times over) you may begin to have »

At E3 2014, Namco Bandai has finally pulled the veil back (a little) on their brand new Dragon Ball video game (which we saw some screenshots from before). Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be the franchises first foray into the next-generation of consoles, and is seeking to change up things...which is a very good thing. Come inside to check out the first trailer and screenshots!
I've always been a sucker for the Dragon Ball Z games, despite knowing that they aren't particularly great games, they can be fun for fans of the original show. Many have felt, however, that the fighting game franchise behind Dragon Ball Z has been growing stagnant without offering much new for gamers to enjoy. Namco Bandai's recently revealed Xenoverse is hoping to change that by offering up a new world set-up and and all new character that will somehow change up the classic battles.
Namco isn't »

Tony Jaa is one of this generation’s most underrated cinematic martial artists, ruling foreign cinema with furious Muay Thai fury – but you wouldn’t know that from The Protector 2. In fact, for anyone who doesn’t know Tony Jaa’s body of work, avoid The Protector 2 at all costs. Go watch Ong-bak or The Protector, two phenomenal displays of fluid fighting that show Jaa’s real talent – not this horrid clusterf#ck of laughable green screens, cartoonish villains, Star Wars sound effects, and dizzying cinematography. Usually movies with constant badassery contain moments of exhilarating fighting, but the longer Prachya Pinkaew’s train-wreck of a sequel lasted, the more I debated if being pummeled by Tony Jaa in person would have been more enjoyable. At least my eyes would have been swollen shut?

Here's another selection of crowdfunding projects for your delectation, which this week includes an Inception-inspired board game...
As it turns out, our landlady is a reader of these Crowdfunding Friday posts, and she came round last weekend to find out exactly why we'd erected a cub tent in the front room of the premises. By this point, we'd accidentally set fire to the tent while lighting some joss sticks the night before, leaving a circular burnt patch on the carpet.
Needless to say, the landlady was decidedly unimpressed, and didn't look too kindly on the empty Tizer bottles and packets of biscuits lying around the place either. When she spotted the 1990s-era Game Boy lying on the shattered remains of the sofa, she gave us a look of derision. With a smug look on her face, she reached into her top pocket and »
Growing up in the late 1990s and early part of the 2000s, I was a huge fan of Toonami. The anime block on Cartoon Network introduced me to some of the first TV shows I actively followed such as Gundam Wing, YuYu Hakusho, and most importantly, Dragon Ball Z. While I don’t follow the genre much anymore, I will always have a fondness in my heart for these shows, which is why I was excited to get my hands on Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Z. Sure, I had played the previous Budokai series of titles, but this new installment was promising the fast-paced, over the top brawls that the show is known for.
As mentioned before, Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Z does away with the traditional one on one fighting system that most of the other titles in the franchise have used in favor of a 4 on 4 system. »

In a January 3rd piece posted over at The Atlantic, Monica Kim ponders if Shinichiro Watanabe's latest series Space Dandy can help anime garner some “well-deserved critical consideration.”It's a rather lengthy, in-depth, and well-researched article on the topic of anime series and they're place in popular Japanese culture. Yet Kim hits on the fact that plenty of anime isn't taken as seriously in the west as perhaps it should:Critical focus, however, has stayed largely on feature films, while anime - referring specifically to Japanese animated television series - has not earned the same kind of respect. An animator like Daisuke Nishio, for example, who directed the hit Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z series, is not considered an artist like Miyazaki, whose drawings have been displayed in museums in Paris.There are plenty of reasons for this but Kim remarks that the commercial success of anime (reportedly worth »
