New „Dragon Ball” Movie in progress!!!

We have a great news, new “Dragon Ball” film is going to hit theatres at March 30 next year in Japan! What is important, Toriyama Akira will be taking part in the movie’s scenario, so we hope that it will be much better than the version from 2009 – let’s be honest, it was really bad… on the other hand it can’t be worse than it was, so everything else will be better ;-)

“Sailor Moon” will return!

During the 20th anniversary of the “Sailor Moon” brand, the preparation of the new series was announced. The original cast appeared at the gala, so it’s highly possible that they will take part in the production. We recall that the anime series was based on the Naoko Takeuchi manga .

“Sailor Moon” was a phenomenal hit outside of Japan. Let us hope that the next series will be equally wonderful!
