SDCC At Home 2021: Dragon Ball Special Panel

Published

on

This year’s San Diego Comic Con At Home kicked off with a very special panel dedicated to the iconic “Dragon Ball” franchise. Launching originally as a manga in 1984, Akira Toriyama’s masterpiece continues to thrive today in the form of a new manga and anime, “Dragon Ball Super”. Following the tale of Goku, a Saiyan warrior originally sent to conquer Earth but wound up saving it (several times) instead. The panel began with an electrifying performance of the “Dragon Ball Z” theme song, “CHA-LA-HEAD-CHA-LA!”, by Hironobu Kageyama.

 

After the performance, the panel welcomed voice actress Masako Nozawa (Goku, Gohan, Goten), executive producer and editor Akio Iyoku, and animation producer Norihiro Hayashida. The guest had brought with them some special artwork from the highly anticipated “Dragon Ball Super” movie. They each noted the differences in color for some of the characters’ designs, revealing they wished to follow Toriyama’s original designs for the manga. They also revealed the title of the new movie, “Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero”. Iyoku remarked that the title is meant to reflect the superheroes present in the Dragon Ball franchise.

 

A brief teaser trailer for the film was shown, not depicting any actual scenes, but showing the film’s protagonist Goku takes his classic fighting stance. Ioku and Hayashida noted that while it’s too early to disclose the plot details of the film, fans can rest assured the movie will be nothing short of spectacular.

The 8 Episode Series Tries To Encompass A Lot Leaving Fans In A Cliffhanger.

Published

The 2010 “Avatar: The Last Airbender” movie by M. Night Shyamalan faced criticism for its deviations from the beloved animated series. The film struggled with pacing, casting, and a lackluster script, disappointing fans who cherished the source material. In contrast, the 2024 Netflix series has generated positive buzz for its commitment to diverse casting, adherence to the original storyline, and improved character development. The series seems poised to capture the essence of the animated show, offering a fresh and faithful adaptation that resonates with both new and existing fans.

Even though the Netflix series comes closer to the core ideals of the animated series, I feel it lacks heart. Many scenes barely scratch the surface of the relationships between the characters and the push-and-pull relationship between Aang and Zuko. I will admit the CG versions of Momo and Appa are just so gosh darn cute.

The 8 episode series tries to encompass a lot leaving fans in a cliffhanger. It’s worth a watch and I am hanging on for the next season to be announced.
