File these under the ‘cool, but I’d never wear them’ category of anime merch. Strapya is taking preorders for these cool pairs of Dragonball headphones. At under $35 each you shouldn’t be expecting the best sound but you could totally plug them into an amplifier and turn the volume to, wait for it, over 9000. Come on I had to do it.

So Dragonball Evolution came out, and as horrible as the movie was, it could have been much much worse. We survived and now there’s only about a dozen more anime movies in the making to go through, right? Wrong, it doesn’t end here! With Dragonball Evolution having been a moderate success worldwide and the movie already turning profits, the Hollywood tycoons aren’t going to give up. That’s right, there’s a sequel, and its already written.
When talking to MTV news, Justin Chatwin revealed that a sequel for the movie has already been written and its only awaiting a green light depending on the success of the Evolution. Furthermore Spike the Vampire… I mean Piccolo himself, James Masters, has stated that:
“We’re going to get to ‘Dragonball Z’ later, where Piccolo becomes youthful and he’s going to become the Piccolo that most people recognize.”
So are we looking at a second part based on Dragonball Z’s first act? Will we get to see Vegeta and Napa? Will its profit level be over 9000?!

Oh god it seems one horror can only bring more horrors. Bandai Namco is making a PSP fighter based on the Dragonball: Evolution movie. Not only does the game look like a generic, lackluster fighter, its also riddled with penis. I’m not kidding, this is beyond Freudian, look for yourselves.

Time for the latest disaster in the Dragonball live action movie production. Apparently a picture showing Goku in his Oozaru form got leaked to the internet which you can see above. Its getting a lot of flack and for good reason! You see Oozaru is Japanese for ‘Big Monkey’, that’s a pretty simple description. Its a monkey… and its big, what could go wrong?
Well, somehow they managed to fuck it up and turn it into another Ivan Ooze / vampire lookalike! What the fuck?! FOX has replied saying that this was merely a test for the Oozaru form, which is another way of saying “’this was the real deal until everybody started yelling’. So in the spirit of making things better, or at least more faithful I took the liberty to fix this ‘test’ Oozaru. See it fixed after the jump.

Big news conglomerate IGN reports that the premier for the Dragoball live action movie has been moved closer by a couple of days. April 8 is the new date. Supposedly moved for strategical reasons the movie will be competing against the Hannah Montana movie that week. A smart move to make the movie look better? An all out competition with Hannah Montana for the bad movie crown? Only time will tell.

Somehow, two weeks earlier than expected, the trailer for Dragonball’s been released online, and to nobody’s surprise it looks awful. I still don’t totally get why Mai’s there, but not Pilaf, and everyone who predicted that they’d Hollywood Romance up Goku and Bulma, give yourself a round of applause. See for yourself.

Holy magic dragon spheres! Hot off the juicy leaks oven come these images from what surely is the first trailer for the Dragon Ball Live Action Movie along with a poster showing a sexy-looking Bulma. In the trailer images we can see Goku sporting his much better known orange attire bearing Master Roshi’s school’s logo. We also see the first images of Piccolo and finally get an answer to the question of his skin color: not green.
I still dont know what to think of these but Piccolo looks uncomfortably similar to Ivan Ooze.
Click the images to view in a slightly larger version, sadly no hi-res images were leaked but we’re not complaining.
The new issue of Shueisha’s Roadshow magazine has posted on-set images of the cast of the Dragon Ball movie. Pictured are Justin Chatwin as Goku, Emmy Rossum as Bulma, Chow Yun-Fat as Master Roshi, Joon Park as Yamcha, and Jamie Chung as Chi-Chi. The pictures are after the break.
Well, there you have it. Justin Chatwin, as Goku. Doesn’t look too bad if you ask me, but time will tell. We can also look forward to the next issue of Weekly Young Jump for a full article about the upcoming movie, which premiers in Japan next March, and April here in the U.S. If nothing else, this is most certainly a step in the right direction. What do you guys think?
