Derek Padula's Dragon Soul book transforms into a physical release


This wish wasn't beyond Shenron's power

You got to hand it to authors who get their digital books released physically so people can immerse themselves while they turn each page with their hands. In a similar manner to how a Saiyan goes Super, Dragon Soul: 30 Years of Dragon Ball Fandom, a book by Derek Padula (It's Over 9,000! When Worldviews Collide's Author, Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope's Writer) that covers the series global impact from its staff and fans' perspective, has launched in a printed form.

As a person that loves to hear about the different perspectives on how certain properties impact folks worldwide, it's impressive to hear about Padula's findings in Dragon Soul since he got to interview various people, such as folks from FUNimation, Team FourStar's crew, Jason Thompson (Dragon Ball manga's Editor for North America's release), the voice actors who were involved with the other broadcasts of Dragon Ball (such as Latin America's Dragon Ball anime series dub), along with various people who're involved in Dragon Ball-related fan art, cosplay and other works.

If this book is the equivalence of Goku's Spirit Bomb, I have a feeling that folks who expressed their passionate love of the Dragon Ball series to give Padula the energy to create Dragon Soul will resonate with many folks who enjoy the franchise to this day.
