So the next Dragonballball Z film...
Goku fights a rabbit...
It's always been going I think. I've missed out on one or two ova's/movies, like the second Bardock filmSpoiler!
Yeah, I thought the series would have made more sense and been more enjoyable as a series of OVAs, the way they seemed to drag everything out to fit into half hour programs was terrible. I guess I shouldn't be that surprised they're still making them.
don't know if anyones recommended it yet but Deathman Wonderland is a fantastic very gory and cool. Also if anyones not seen Black Lagoon watch it now it's amazing.
Been wanting to watch Black Lagoon for a while.
I saw a preview for a DBZ -- either series or movie -- in which some kid is playing a DBZ arcade game and gets sucked into a DBZ world. Conversely, I saw another trailer for a heavily animated (almost 3D/2D blend) that just featured some landscapes and Goku. So much stuff going on still. Unfortunately.
I have the first series of Black Lagoon, and I enjoyed it, but not enough to buy into the second series. Still, if you're looking for a Cowboby Bebop/Samurai Champloo/Outlaw Star substitute, it's defo worth checking out.
I'll probably get heat for this, but even though Remi is the star of the show, I found her pretty insufferable.
It's being done by Akira Toriyama himself so yeah, it could be good?
Also go see JoJo if you like ridiculous fights and fun dialogue, it's definitely worth checking. The series is huge and old, so in this anime they started from the very beginning and are going through the story really fast.
It's one of the few animes that I watch, and my current favorite to watch

They really ham in the timeline for these films in the Dragonball series. We're suppose to believe that every villain is more powerful than the last. The next thing we ever saw after the Buu saga ended was Goku leaving and then GT happening. So apparently in between that he fought this unstoppable cat/bunny thing and Vegeta met his long lost brother Coffee Table, at a party.
Kinda reminds me of the Cowboy Bebop movie. If you watch it all in order, then Spike has a personal epiphany, only for him to seemingly forget and have it again when the finale rolls around; which is why he spurs himself into action, anyway.
I'm not a fan of the movie, in general, but putting it in with the series just lessens the impact. Vicious is justifably a formidable opponent, a match/equal with history for Spike, but he doesn't seem so threatening after Vincent. And when the end happens, Spike doesn't figure out his destiny, he's just told what to think by some terrorist he's met twice. Eh.
Yeah, I pretty much entirely disassociate the movie and series. Movie has some stunning animation, though. Then again, series still does, too.
Also didn't realize it finally got a blu ray release in Japan. Not going to be importing because it doesn't have the English VA, but hopes it can still make it out here. Then again, I talked to a person who's imported it and watched it and she told me it looks pretty bad (poor transfer). All the sads.
Also mentioned in Cinema thread but finally watched Makoto Shinkai's Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below. It's pretty good and absolutely stunning.
I can see that, but still it's nice to have the movie of Cowboy Beebop

When I went to Japan, many years ago, I found this £200 limited definitive edition boxset. God, I so wanted it since I was obsessed at that point! I even had the PS2 game in my hands, which I've always wanted to play, but it was all in Japanese and thought it would be a waste of money. I did pick up a really awesome art book for the show - concept stuff, promo material, unused drawings, etc. - might post pics some day. It's great.
I'm happy with my Chinese version, though. It had more extras than the UK release, original Japanese and English VO, and a better packaging.
