I wanted this to be good so much… *sigh*. So, here we have Jump Force, the latest crossover game featuring characters from Weekly Shonen Jump!, the most popular manga comic in Japan, and publishers of such classics as Dragon Ball, One Piece, Bleach, Death Note and many… many more. With such an endless wealth of things to use and play with, how does a company fail to deliver? Well, let’s find out, shall we!
My review of the Sixth Dragon Ball Super physical media release is now up on Anime UK News and can be viewed HERE. Part 7 will begin to feature episodes I already covered via streaming reviews for the website (already linked in the Dragon Ball tab!), so this may be the last one I review… (for Anime UK News. One day I’ll reach Super in my normal reviews, but that’s a ways off yet, given I’ve only reviewed the very first arc of Dragon Ball so far…)
An odd time to post a review (for me anyway) but I had the pleasure of seeing a screening of the new Dragon Ball Super movie for Anime UK News and review it for them, which can be found HERE.
To sum up though: it was great! The only downside was a re-writing of Bardock, but the writing in of Broly was really well done, and man… that end battle. Talk about high production values… Anyway, click the link for a more in-depth analysis, and see the film if you can!
My journey through the frankly disappointing Dragon Ball Kai version of the Buu Arc comes to a close, and can be found HERE. Oh well, onwards to 2019! Where new Dragon Ball releases will include a canon Broly, apparently…
How’s that for a long headline title? Anyway, this was somehow a thing, and even weirder is it ended up getting a collected physical release that ended up being released here in the UK! My review of That Time I Got Reincarnated as Yamcha is up on Anime UK News HERE. It’s both as weird, and as funny, as it sounds… unless you’re not into Dragon Ball, then it’ll be a confusing mess…
Jeez, these Final Chapter covers don’t make for good thumbnails… Anyway, my review of the second third of the slightly condensed version of the Buu arc is now up on Anime UK News and can be viewed HERE.
My review of the first chunk of episodes from DBZ Kai: The Final Chapters is now up on Anime UK News HERE. Warning: it’s not very positive, fairly, I feel… obviously, otherwise I wouldn’t have scored it that way… You know what I mean!
My review of the latest Dragon Ball Super physical release is now up on Anime UK News, and can be found HERE. Just how many more ways can Future Trunks’ world get screwed up? Let’s find out!
Dragon Ball is iconic, inspired so many Shonen manga that came after it, and is one of my favourite shows of all time, but I’ve ranked it only #4 in this list?! Yeah, well, this is top debut arcs, and although this has some good, funny moments, it has some pretty unfunny ones as well… Not enough to knock it off the list entirely, obviously, more good than bad and all that. Anyway, it’s also another debut arc that doesn’t actually represent what the show would become, though it took a lot longer to end up more action focused this time. So let’s take a look at what is actually my first Dragon Ball review for this blog, despite 101 reviews elsewhere!
Here is my review of the next Dragon Ball Super blu-ray release, featuring the start of the “Future Trunks Arc”. It can be found HERE.
With Manga just announcing the Buu arc from Dragon Ball Kai to be released at the end of the year, it seems my blog will be full of product reviews for Dragon Ball long before I actually get to cover the show in detail!
