The wait is finally over, Dragonball dub fans. The long-awaited dub of Dragonball Super has finally premiered on Cartoon Network’s Toonami block. This, of course, carries significance. After all, most fans first viewed Dragonball Z on the original Toonami block back in the 90s. Many fans have most likely already viewed Super when the show came out in its original Japanese. I for one, constantly find myself watching many anime subbed. But for Dragonball, it is a different matter entirely.
This week for Anime Sunday here at WTFGamersOnly we had an important task from our boss to watch one anime that we have not seen before, so I took it upon myself to watch Sailor Moon: Crystal since I heard a lot of things about its reboot. First of all, let me tell you guys I am a big fan of the original Sailor Moon and as a kid I would watch it before watching Dragon Ball Z when it was on Toonami, so of course I was excited to hear the news that it was getting remade. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to see it until now and the reason behind that is because at the time I was more focused on watching Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. So here is what I think after watching a few episodes of the show.
[Spoiler alter] But only if you haven’t seen Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods
As fans are likely well aware, the famous anime Dragon Ball is back with a new series now called Dragon Ball Super. The show is pure nostalgia from start to finish every episode. The intro theme alone practically screams “WE’RE BACK!” And while they are back and it’s amazing, the show has yet to show much new if you’re someone who’s kept up with the most recent Dragon Ball Z movies.

This week we are talking about which awesome anime collectible we wish existed and why we would throw all our money at it. That is such a tough scenerio for one such as myself, who frequently finds what he wants has already been done. There are already several statues, games, posters, and cassette tapes from the old Yu-Gi-Oh! days in my collection so it’s difficult to think of anything new. One particular favorite of mine is the Super Saiyan Goku statue. The Claptrap is also one I love but he is unfortunately broken and needs to stand on Legos to even stay up.
Dragon Ball Z is one of the most iconic anime to ever exist. Very few fans of video games, anime, or manga have NOT heard of Goku and the dragonballs. It’s a series so beloved and popular it just doesn’t stay gone. Now after so many years of just specials and movies, Dragon Ball is back. The new series, Dragon Ball Super is a continuation that ignored GT and just picks up after the Buu Saga. With the series back, it’s always great to look back and remember what made the show amazing and which characters stood out among this epic series.
Dragon Ball Z has a plethora of characters, and over a ton of arcs, we’ve been introduced to heroes and villains alike, and even still there are quite a number of memorable characters presented to viewers. unfortunately, not all of these characters have made it into the latest Dragon Ball series and movies. One of the lucky few to be featured in the new Dragon Ball Super is one of my favorite characters, Lazuli or what she’s better known as, Android 18. From enemy, to friend, to wife, Android 18 has progressed in character just as much as the series has as a whole, here’s why she’s my favorite and why i’m excited to see her back on my screen.Read more#AnimeSunday: Android 18 Makes A Fan Favorite Return
Well this is a whopper of an announcement.
The last couple years have been something of a rebirth for the Dragon Ball franchise with two new movies and the successful online game, Dragon Ball Xenoverse. Now to top all of these developments comes something that Dragon Ball Z fans have been dreaming of for a LONG time. Anime News Network reports that Toei Animation has announced that Akira Toriyama will be penning a brand new DBZ series called Dragon Ball Super (Japanese) which will take place after the events of the Buu saga and before the non-canonical Dragon Ball GT.
Recently, I’ve become an Anime junkie, hosting Anime days on the weekend to watch a plethora of different shows based on all Anime genres. But where did it all start for me? The anime, and the sharing the shows with friends, and watching the shows in Japanese (because English dubs usually suck…Looking at you Attack on Titan). It all started in my Junior year of College. In my Shakespeare course, I was placed in a group with a guy who was a real live Pokémon trainer, who spoke Japanese.
