DBZ-BoG-324-06.jpg In Japan, today is March 30, 2013, the hotly anticipated release day of the first DBZ movie in 17 years, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods! Japanese television station TV Tokyo aired a nice preview for the movie showing off never before scenes. That’s not all though! There is also a quick look at how the Battle of Gods team used 3D animation during fights in the movie, a blast from the DBZ past, and the hosts of the preview acting all giddy and excited in DBZ style!

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is 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, but 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, however, Toei has acknowledged a huge international response and has received government funding for a potential release.

  • AiHina

    just saw it 30 mins ago, certainly not the usual dbz movie formula so that made it interesting in itself. Gohan still did go SSJ and Buu’s to blame for everyone getting their ass kicked

  • narutobleachop

    to be honest, Bulma looks really good. never been a fan of her, but they created her nice in this movie

  • king

    Not just good, sexy. Glade it finally here.

    If this movie doesn’t get licensed by FUNimation, I’m gonna flip. I wanna witness this movie on my 60 inch HD TV with an amazing dub.

  • narutobleachop

  • narutobleachop

  • narutobleachop

  • ShadowLock


  • ShadowLock

    Go to Japan.

  • dtrex

    nether got y people can film in Europe and America in theatres but never in japan y they get cavity searched over their or something

  • narutonatsu

    I think it’s time for a new DBZ game (MAY maybe) … um and a new bleach game too just saying.

  • AiHina

    about 7/10, fights were very few and an anti-climatic ending but good to see how far the series came for this to be made

  • AiHina

    because japanese respect their laws and dont want jailtime when caught

  • Sid Martin

    how did you see it?

  • Shane Sharma

    Man this is so awesome!!

  • *Super~Sayian*

    exactly what I was thinking. reminded me just how looking vegeta is lol

  • narutonatsu

    ya, and i’d rather wait see it in awesome dub and take the dbzness. Don’t make sense? … It’s deserves and better to watch it legit to take in the awesome new animation and dub and so on….

  • narutonatsu

    I’d rather wait … patience dude patience.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    that can’t be, toei stated they made a drawing mistake and that they’ll re-edited it.

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

    those japanesse are weird bu funny 0.o

  • AiHina

    not from what i understood, only that wiss was no. 1 strongest and bils was no. 2, ssjg no. 3

  • http://www.facebook.com/stanley.headd Stanley Headd II

    Was that toriyama in the interview?

  • *Super~Sayian*

    hmm. I figured that the 12 god rumor was just bogus nonsense.

  • MarcoThePhoenix

    That chick is freaking hot

  • AiHina

    and shes only 38

  • Shane Sharma


  • Jaye J

    In due time, Funimation should be dubbing this movie. Seeing as though this is the first DBZ movie in 17 years, this should definitely get dubbed. Plus the movie just came out, so it might be a minute.

  • Guest

    I meant lucky not looking lol

  • SSJG

    they made every1 look too young.

  • NeosWiseman

    Don’t know if my previous comment was posted, but there actually is 12 Gods of Destruction, it was confirmed in the plot.

  • AiHina

    The honorable thing by paying ¥1800 and sitting down with some popcorn

  • *Super~Sayian*

    really? I hope you’re right! otherwise this movie has been extremely overhyped. and as a dbz fan, I would be disappointed lol. thanks for letting me know.

  • Joseph Cregier

    I don’t think it’s gonna get licensed… Just because it came out literally hours ago doesn’t mean they can’t license it. FUNimation licensed the Fairy Tail movie before it even came out, I think that there might be licensing issues for some odd reason since Fox is involved with this movie.

  • uchihalord1994

    Same here! (: a budokai tenkaichi 4 or raging blast 3! idc either one is good ! xD

  • Fahd Al Zarooni


  • dtrex

    6 months to go y does it take 6 months for japan to put something to dvd takes us 3-4 months not waiting that long for z

  • sonicino

    I bet bil’s not even a bad guy

  • Idy Inyang

    This is why I want to learn to speak Japanese. I can’t seem to understand what they are saying; anime is not enough to teach me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/emmanuel.sanchez.925059 Emmanuel Sanchez

    hey dude can u add me on FB to ask u some questiong about the movie?
    Thanks :D

  • AiHina

    He really isn’t, he came to fight the SSJG; gave ample time to achieve it and was merciful. He fits in more as a future ally with his mannerisms

  • dtrex

    love the idea hopefully for the new consoles so can be played to the max

  • dtrex

    shes bout 43

  • Elsepa

    As if Dragonball games are using the actual consoles to the max LOLOL just LOL

  • uchihalord1994

    Haha lmao

  • Madara

    shes more cute i would say ^^

  • AiHina

    Well she claims to be “38″, which was the gag that no one knew how old she was till she claimed that. Krillin questions it though

  • AiHina

    Forgot to follow up, that Gohan went SSJ to help Goku achieve SSJG; he was mystic when saving Buu

  • Madara

    i bet son goku will be become godlike in this movie or something
    and why they do never a movie for GT i want to see SSJ4 Gogeta the most epic dragon ball char !!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/parvez.mansoori.39 Parvez Mansoori

    trailer looking great. m desperately waiting 4 this movie dvd. 12 god of destruction plot will take dbz to another level.

  • BrainYZ

    she is 41 but she doesn’t want anyone to know that

  • http://twitter.com/J_CParedes Snooze ‘n Juice

    I wish I was in Japan to see this on the big screen :/

  • BrainYZ

    How long is this movie ?

    Because if it was short (less than 90 mins) I will kill Akira & Toei Animation .

  • uchihalord1994

    Probably two hours :P

  • uchihalord1994

    They may release the raw version this week ! i dunno tho :P

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1268479427 Joshua Coy

    Fox fucks everything up lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1268479427 Joshua Coy

    They all look the same to me. The only reason Pilaf and his gang look younger is because they ARE younger. I read somewhere awhile back that apparently they were getting their hands on the Dragonballs and they accidentally wished themselves younger somehow.

    Man,this the time SaiyanIsland gets quiet. I love being excited,and coming here for some awesome info!

  • AiHina

    Somewhere along 80 mins

  • darkhero3500

    So um comentario Portugues a passar…..

  • thecrows2332

    So if Bils is the god of destruction what happens if he dies? Is there a backup god to fill in or is that it for destruction.

  • DavidBowieSamaSenpaiSan

    When you step outside your house you’re going to faint for sure then.

    supah sayah jin… GODO!!!11

  • DavidBowieSamaSenpaiSan

    kkkk GODO VERY funnynynyy KKKKkkkk >_>

  • http://twitter.com/Turbotrup Enturax/Turbotrup

    True that, but working on PS4 is way more easier than on PS3/X360

  • RedDragon10

    This comment right here isn’t racist or anything

  • sonicino

    Yeah, he had many chances to kill the z fighters ( spanking Gotenks, really, it’s 2013!),, so if he wanted to he could of destroyed the earth already. This is all probably leading up to a new saga or some shiit, I bet SSJ God mode is just the first transformation.

  • JR

    Question: Did Bils and Whis teleport to King Kai’s planet or fly there with raw speed?

  • JR

    Question: Did Bils and Whis teleport to King Kai’s planet or fly there with raw speed? Sorry if this comment was posted twice by the way.

  • Jaye J

    When I said “the movie just came out, so it might be a minute” I was referring to his comment since he was asking” where I can view this?” It’s a good chance this movie will get dubbed because Funimation have already presented the idea, by saying if the fans support and buy the dvd and boxsets,so it’s a chance but you could be right about Fox.

  • Jaye J

    Love the sarcasm.

  • http://twitter.com/A5J4DX A5J4DX

    cant wait for an english release!

  • AiHina

    Bils was hanging of Whis, likely speed as Bils was complaining about how far the planets were from his realm

  • GKage

    CC2 needs to do the animation, don’t know about them doing the gameplay mechanics

  • kylephantom4

    English Dub…..NOW!!!!!!!!!

  • Shuran

    spoiler alert …………………………………

    there might be a new dragonball z series after the movie just saying

  • Drethrake

    If they make a Raging Blast 3 I believe they’ll add Bills, but they also have alot of work in adding the characters from Budokai Tenkaichi 3 alone. Such as Tapion, Supreme Kai, etc. Don’t expect any giants like the Oozarus or Giant Lord Slug.

  • Kakarot

    I know its real early but, any ideas on when well see a dvd release ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/paul.waabenammentorp Paul Waaben Ammentorp

    The movie was such a succes in Japan, and had so many supports, that Akira Toriyama is planning a new series with over 200 episodes of Dragon Ball Z. Yea, thats right people. DRAGON BALL Z IS RETURNING!!!

  • Anon

    It’s Pirate Hitler!!!!

  • NeosWiseman

  • NeosWiseman

  • John Ross

    I hope Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi 2 has Super Saiyan God Goku along with some other new features too. :)

  • w3nzter

    gokou’s voice was like luffy’s voice in one piece

  • ilikecorn

    since when did hitler become a japanese pirate?

  • disqus_4CNZjly05L

  • heatwade

    with the official acceptance of tarble into the db series making him canon, they have to develop the “lost episodes” of dbz

  • Gogeta3234

    I hope the movie gets english dubbed with the original voices because i heard they might not dub it but they will sub it but i want it dubbed and I heard that the english actors of vegeta,piccolo,goku, and gohan are tired of making the voices, hope its not true
