It will be played by Japanese voice actor Koichi Yamadera. The blue faced creature, named Wiss, is played by Japanese voice actor Masakazu Morita. No word on what their relationship is at this point in time.

Thanks Elijah!

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will be the 18th movie in the Dragon Ball anime series. It will take place between Dragon Ball manga chapters 517 and 518, in the 10 year timeskip after Goku defeats Buu, before before the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. Akira Toriyama along with Toei Animation, Fox International Productions Japan, Shueisha, Fuji TV, Bandai, and Namco Bandai Games are all involved. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is set to release in Japanese theaters March 30, 2013. There is no word on a North American or European release date at this time for either movie.

    That’s not how  the “GOD OF DESTRUCTION” should look like. F*** this. i’m sorry guys but it’s the dumbest idea ever. I’m not being a fool i’m gonna watch this movie and i’m gonna enjoy watching it. But… i cant accept a rabbit as a god of destruction when you have plenity of BAD ASS GUYS in the SAME serie. You remember Broly? The super android 13? That’s how the should look. I believe people like that deserve to force goku to go over his limits to defeat then and not…. just.. someone who “has the infinite power of the universe” and looks like a pus*** :(

    Lol, thinking a Rabbit like creature isn’t a god of destruction. Um, Ryo-Ohki from Tenchi Muyo, anyone?

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    What if said ‘pus**’ has a transformation m8? -.- (PS: Patience is ALWAYS a virtue in such cases IMO)

    The info at hand is also still HIGHLY limited… so don’t get upset about things just yet ;D LMAO

  • RedDragon10

    Don’t judge a book by its cover.  Just cause he looks like that now doesn’t mean he’ll look like that in the end.  It doesn’t even mean he’s the main villain.

  • EA575

    That’s how Anubis looks like, but more cartoon- and DBZ-like.

  • Sharnerius1

    How are you gonna say that a character in a Universe that you didn’t create is “not” what it looks like?It’s a Jackal not a rabbit -_- Thats what anubis looks like,it’s in Toriyama’s style.

  • Jakub Romanowski

    Masakzu Morita – Ichigo =D

  • Constanza Veloso Luarte

    All that people saying “this rabbit doesn’t look not strong enough” are nothing but stupids. How can something like 
    that create such a big deal? Does Majin Boo looks strong? No ¿right,? but he is the strongest enemy from the manga and the anime. And you are complaining because a character looks like an animal? Please!

    By the way, the looks of this enemy is so much like Toriyama’s style. Dragon Ball, specifically the original one, the first one, had a lot of personifies animals, and that kind of stuff are pretty normal in the series. Also, the series is pretty colorful about their characters (again, Majin Boo, also Cell, Freezer and all the enemys from the movies) so theres really nothing strange about this anubis-like character. Following the classic way of the series, this enemy,- being the last one- (at least from the canon) MUST be the strongest enemy ever, at least stronger than Majn Boo in his last transformation. So don’t complain about this character, it can be really great.

    If you saw the series you must know it, thats why i cannot understand all this complain about this character. Sorry if my enlish is not good enough, but i really had to tell it o.ó

  • AhreKeNoMori

    I think you should read what you just said.

  • Constanza Veloso Luarte

    If you say it about the writing and the language, yes, i know it has a lot of mistakes and im trying to correct it as much as i can. Thank you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    My senses are tingling O.- DOUCHEBAG ALERT!

  • AhreKeNoMori

      In that case. That will be perfect but if it’s not i still hold my
    point. The rabbit (also anubis) looks like one of the animals like
    Toriyama used to draw that’s true. I’m not saying that is bad. I dont
    believe a Jackal is a good character for the “god of destruction” when
    you have a lot of chararcters that look far more evil than this. I’m not
    saying this is going to be bad. BUT it could be better in that way and i
    think almost any fan of dragon ball will feel a little bit more
    impresed with a character with other… look.

    People that call
    other guys “Stupid” just because they have a different view of this
    situation.. should think before writing something. because it’s not
    about insulting each other. I believe there is a way to make “this” more
    atractive and as a fan… i know what people wanted to see that it
    wasnt done in the
    serie because i’m one of them and i wish for the same thing.

    Instead of calling me a “jerk” try to answer this.
    What will you change to make this even better if you could?

  • Aldridge517

    I just realized that the girl in the red is Videl. All this time I’ve been thinking, “Who is that girl who looks like Pan?” Lol

  • alexis cortes

    So, did krillin go back to being a monk again? In the Majin Buu saga he had hair and the incense burns on his forehead disappeared, now he has shorter hair but you can see the incense burns.

  • AhreKeNoMori

    We all have problems with english.
    but i think calling me a stupid or “douchebag” like Maaz Shaikh because i gave you my opinion is not the right thing to do :(

    A lot of people are drawing their own mangas from dragon ball and even more stuff. Creating things that didnt happen in the serie and they wont and i wish i could do the same not because i want to turn in into something bad i want to think that there is a good way to make better things.

    have you seen dragon ball heroes? A lot of people says it’s crap but i dont :(
    They did something really… pointless… but they also added new “what if” stuff and they… are… AWESOME :( and if i say in a place like this that i think there is a better way to make this movie a better one it’s because there is one.

    Bills & Wiss, interesting O_O

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

  • Aj Johnson

    this looks so bad. it doesn’t even look like DBZ

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_J5LNCEALWX6J7TNXSJYCBKSMSU Chris

     u do know this isnt the 80s and 90s anymore right? of course its not gonna look the same. nobody does cel drawings anymore. get over it. its gonna be a good movie.

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    Maybe he simply ‘changed’ his hairdo? It’s quite possible IMO

    ’18′ may have been the main reason behind that one too! XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

     Well duh… this IS how Toriyama drew a majority of the anthropomorphic animals in the original ‘Dragon Ball’ m8.
    That aside, I’ll agree with what Chris says, that this IS something that’s comin’ 16 years AFTER the series stopped airing XP

    Jus sayin’ B)

  • Twice_The_A

    Where is the source that says this is anubis just in toriyama’s style? I’m not saying you’re wrong, but there is no indication that this is anubis. In the bigger image, he looks like a rabbit, in the smaller image he looks more like a cat, both of these creatures do not represent anubis. Also, there is more than just anubis for an egyption god, infact, if you were to find out the egyption ‘God of Destruction’ you would see that it does not say anubis. So, until toriyama actually states that this is anubis, just in his own interpretation, it’s not anubis because all the clues point in the opposite direction.

  • RedDragon10

    Looks like Goku to me.

  • NatsuFire2012

    dude watch it first before u start judging it and whats so bad about it? details please?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_O2VITSNIHFGZ6AYE2SCODUOQJY Justin

    to all who complain first of all this series is fake whatever anyone wants to draw and put dbz above it kinda makes it a part of the series along as its popular enough with the fans it doesnt need toriyama’s approval  such as db multiverse. also those complaing about character art this isnt the first time dbz had a gay looking purple thing with a tail. *cough* frieza  and he was relevant and strong at one point and he wore fucking lip stick so just sit back and let then milk the series toriyama owns it hes just tryin to get enough money to buy a ps4.

    Wiss is bills butler

  • http://www.blackxino.blogspot.com/ Xino

    they need to revamp DBZ. The power level doesn’t make sense.

    there was one time Goku and Krillin were trying to rescue civilians, I believe in the Android Incoming saga. People were in a bus and were about to fall off a cliff and Goku in his Super Saiyan lvl 1 form was struggling to carry and balance the big bus:/

    i just have a problem with the power levels, energy consumption, charging and shooting fire balls. They are too inconsistent.

  • Constanza Veloso Luarte

    Sorry for use that word. I didn’t want to offend you (not you specifically) and i know that insult people doesn’t work, but this complain about ¿Bills? bothers me a lot for the reasons i said in the post. I think its  really simple to complain for something like the look of a character, specifically of this series. I try to understand other’s opinion but sometimes its difficult, even more when people create  a bad idea or a bad disposition about something (in this case the movie, which we should hope with a little more of confidence, i think)

    For what you say about other creations, draws and other DB stuff, i understand if you and many people like it, and being honest, i think that even i really love DB and its a great series, its not perfect and tends to be repetitive, thats why so many people do their own creation. 

    But the point is no matter what movie, OVA,  saga, etc, appears, fans don’t approve them. They always have something to complain about. I understand it because many of them are just too commercial and pointless (like the 2008 OVA), but THIS movie is a very different issue (based in the information we have): its original, its canon, its made by Toriyama…i mean,let have some respect and confidence in it. It will be the first time Toriyama get involved in a series production, so there is a lot to be happier about than disappointed, and the only fact that this is canon, is, at least for me, enough to be happy. Im aware that the movie could end up being disappoiting xD but even like that it will be an original movie, and not an illusion created by fans.

     We must let some legends rest in peace and don’t touch them anymore, and maybe with Dragon Ball is the same: fans cannot let it go, but they  neither can accept any other sequel if it is not what they hope (that is how i see it)

    And that is why i see no reason to be disappoited with the character; despite his looks, he probably will offer such a good battle like the previews enemys. It will probably similar to what we have seen from the anime and the manga.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Ha, me too lol O_O

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Don’t like gohan having SSJ still, it’s very clear that it’s a “sign” that he’ll will get his behind whooped dramatically even thou he’s the strongest… unless this 10yr gap means goku SSJ3 will be superior than gohan.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    The Power Levels were removed after frieza saga, this is where contradictions starts to resurface into DBZ (canon & filler), reasons like you mentioned and other causes such as stronger opponent’s getting killed or out classed by weaker opponents. I guess it’s to balance out the plot and have slightly more meaning to it. 

  • Guest

    First Off Frieza looks awesome and his design fits perfect for his personality, secondly he’s an alien so I don’t see how “gay” someone can look if they don’t even look human, it’s not like he’s wearing a bra. 

    thirdly all the main villains looked intimidating and evil, fat buu does not count because it’s not his true form, I don’t care if this is “anubis” it looks like a alien with rabbit ears, he looks like he belongs in one of those “fillers” wear goku fought in a tournament against weird retarded aliens OR one of those weaker magical non threatening villains in dragon ball, but in Z they actually look like an threat..Which I honestly believe that’s where this rabbit belongs. (this is why most people hate fat jenemba) . 

     it’s hard to explain, but it looks like something vegeta would constantly make fun of just by it’s appearance and then laugh even harder when he finds out it’s one of the strongest beings in the universe. and lastly theirs a rumor that this movie is considered “Canon” for reasons Idk, but it is, meaning that this will actually  have effect to the conclusion of Z. so sadly we’ll have to accept this rabbit joke and gohan’s SSJ  as canon.

  • Guest

    This ISN’T dragon ball.. it’s dragon ball Z, completely different drawing style for villains

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    Let’s just wait for the official trailer or somethin’ BEFORE we pass judgment or make useless assumptions… XP

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    Dude, I was talking about the art style for Bils here… -.-
    It’s quite obvious that his design is similar to those anthropomorphic chars from Dragon Ball! (Which IMO, DID have more such chars than the DBZ series) XP

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    That was filler… *sigh*

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    BILLS? WISS? I should’ve expected this from Toriyama. He creates some of the weirdest designs and names.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Yes… yes it does need Toriyama’s approval. This movie is being worked on by him, so it is canon (even he stated the same). Anything he had no or little hand in writing is not a part of the DB canon universe, only the “extended” universe. It’s there for fun, nothing more.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Toriyama said it is canon. Toriyama is the creator and writer of the DBZ manga. He and he alone dictates what is canon and not, that is the general consensus in the general anime/manga community.

    I agree, the design is seriously lacking. But who knows, this IS DBZ after all. Rabbit boy may transform into uber badass Bunny.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    DB and DBZ came from the same manga, only the anime series were split into two (like Naruto and Shippuden). The design differences are just coincidence (and biases based on the fact that most outside of Japan fans were introduced to DBZ first). 

    Ugh, why are DBZ fans so ignorant? 

  • Brandon Johnson

    also 90% of dbz villains have a trans formation so im looking for ward to seeing how they do this with anubus he is the guardean of egypt. also gohan could be ssj 2 1/2 like super super sayjin vageta we dont know or he could be ssj mystic WE DONT know ssj mystic would be like ssj3 1/2 almost as powerful as ssj 4 and if he was that would be epic   

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    ^ I second that.

    Being impatient (at present) and passing judgment on the villains designs for no reason (and WITHOUT solid evidence to back it up ie: it’ll suck and looks weird) is a serious waste of time -.-

    The movie has been confirmed as being canon and the time frame has also being revealed (occurs between 513-514) so I really don’t understand the denial by some people LOL

  • Aj Johnson

     I will be watching it DBZGT is my favorite anime/manga series but what i should’ve said was the two villains do not look like Z’s style.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Anyone who mentions “GT” doesn’t deserve to be taken seriously. Not canon, not part of the real storyline, does not count, how many ways must I say this?

  • Aj Johnson


  • http://twitter.com/kevingarciaacev kevin garcia acevedo

    whats the point of going mystic he will lose like he lose to buu and goku and vegete will fuse to make gogeta or some new atack

  • Aj Johnson

    i was talking about the villains who look like they don’t belong in DBZ.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ENRWH6PGHSJ274LYJOEMUZXHDM LiL JJ

    Wow you know nothing of the DB series or Toriyama. Toriyama is actually working on this movie him self,Toriyama is the creator of the series so anything dealing with DB & Dbz needs his approval. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ENRWH6PGHSJ274LYJOEMUZXHDM LiL JJ

    Personally I love the character designs, looks cool to me. I understand some people might not like it but seriously the movie not even out yet,this is just a second scan and people are already bitchin’. Let Toriyama create his art while we all watch. The same ones bitchin’ most likely are gonna be the same ones talking about how cool it is when the movie actually comes out. Let alone you all act like this is the first design of this caliber,this is DB,you should be use to by now. Anyways I like it,his artwork is like that of an Egyptian Emperor,very cool to me. As for the name,apparently the Anubis is also making it rain,Shololololol (Brook voice)

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    This is actually Akira Toriyama’s apprentice Ooishi Naho’s art, but Akira Toriyama is making the story for this movie

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

     No, Gohan only lost because Super Buu was backed by plot armor at the last second (along with the fact that he mind fucked the guy by using Piccolo as an ‘example’)… if he hadn’t absorbed SSJ3 Gotenks and Piccolo, he would’ve been dead LONG back!

    Think about it, Buu f*ckin’ ABSORBED a fused SSJ3 and a Super Namek at the same time! I think Gohan did pretty decently at the start… esp. considering that he wasn’t AS well trained and experienced as Goku or Vegeta… XP

  • RedDragon10

    I’m at a loss for words.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ENRWH6PGHSJ274LYJOEMUZXHDM LiL JJ

    By art I meant the story of DB in regards to Toriyama,I didn’t mean art generally lol. I meant Manga = Artform

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Interesting. He mimics him very well, especially from his early stuff in DB.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Toriyama: I’m so sick of this series already, my editors won’t let me stop, I don’t give a $h1t anymore, I’ll plot hax through the whole Buu arc and introduce Fan Fiction level content (though that content makes for great video game characters).

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Ugh… so you you’re saying you are a fan of Shonen Jump’s interference in the DBZ portion of DB, not Toriyama’s DB universe (not understanding)? 

    I’m a fan of the whole thing, and I’m a fan of the creator not the corporate greeds who dictated he change his designs to suit them and DBZ’s growing popularity. Sorry, a creator of something doesn’t deserve to be undercut like he was when his “designs” and story telling were the reason it became popular in the first place.

  • Aj Johnson

    Look alex i’m a fan of the entire db universe made by toriyama as well along with various other stories made by him. What i was saying was the movie villains look out of place in my opinion along with others(one guy  said the sphinx dude looked like A cat version of Mewtwo). Anyway i will be watching it when i can.
