Arale and the rest of the Dr Slump crew want you to buy a Suzuki

One thing that I feel like manga and anime legend Akira Toriyama never really gets enough credit for are his mechanical designs. Sure, he's made some amazing characters in the Dragon Ball, Chrono Trigger, and Dragon Quest un...

This corgi's costume is over 9,000

Cosplay? Corgsplay? With their long shape, oversized head, and ridiculous features, Welsh Corgis make the best costume dogs. And as members of the herding dog group, they're a perfect fit as scouter users. I almost couldn't b...

Dragonball Z BATTLE OF Z coming to lots of consoles

Dragon Ball Z BATTLE OF Z is an awful name. Far be it from me to judge Bandai Namco's naming sense though.  What is BATTLE OF Z you ask? It's the latest Dragon Ball Z game from the folks over at Bandai Namco, and it's sl...

Import Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods
by Elliot Gay

I spent a good portion of my childhood devouring anything with the Dragon Ball Z brand on it.

School would end, and I'd rush home to catch the latest episode of the Cell Saga on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Everyday meant another new episode and even crazier action. I know I'm not alone in this: an entire generation spent their afternoons watching Goku and his friends (but mostly Goku) kick all kinds of ass. 

Seventeen years after the last feature film, Dragon Ball Z has returned to theaters in the form of Battle of Gods. Unsurprisingly, the movie is a box office success and has already grossed a whopping $7,000,000 in just two days.

Is it any good though?
