Cell has been defeated and the Z-Fighters have returned to their normal lives. But, now it’s time for them to reunite as the World Martial Arts Tournament is about to begin! As we approach the Buu saga of the epic Dragon Ball Z franchise, let’s take a look at the amazing artwork for Dragon Ball Z Seasons 7, 8, and 9 on Blu-ray!

 

We worked closely with the art team at Toei Animation in Japan to create something unique and exciting to celebrate the memorable moments and characters from the series. Take a look at the early pencil sketches to get an idea of how we progressed to the finished piece.

synopsis:

 

Seven years of peace have passed since the defeat of the monstrous Cell, and the Z-Fighters have enjoyed a return to normal life. Goku has eagerly continued his training in Other World, Krillin has gotten married, and Gohan has renewed his scholarly pursuits while attempting to navigate the pitfalls of high school. Two fresh new Saiyan faces have also appeared on the scene – Goku’s son Goten, and Vegeta’s son Trunks!

 

Now, the time has come for the Z-Fighters to reunite, as the new World Martial Arts Tournament is set to begin. The greatest warriors on Earth have come together for their chance to capture the title of the reigning champion, Mr. Satan – but behind the scenes, sinister forces are at work. An evil eye watches the competitors’ every move, waiting for the opportune moment to strike. The action grows fierce on the tournament floor, but for the Z-Fighters, the real fight is only just beginning!

 

Keep an eye on the blog, we’ll be revealing the final designs for the panoramic image shot and beauty layout for Seasons 7 – 9 in the next few weeks.

New Release Tuesday – Code:Breaker, DBZ, and Lost Girl

Code:Breaker is available now on BD/DVD Combo. This series comes from the director of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. So, how many lives can a hero take before he becomes a villain?

 

series synopsis:

 

Rei Ogami doesn’t have a problem with killing. As a Code:Breaker—a super-powered assassin employed by a secret government organization—he works outside of the law, existing in the gray area between right and wrong. When Rei gets an assignment, criminals are cremated in a blaze of blue fire. That is, until a classmate named Sakura witnesses his fatal flames in action and makes it her mission to keep him from killing again.

 

As Sakura becomes entrenched in Rei’s world of cruelty, mayhem, and violence, the line between good and evil begins to blur. When another Code:Breaker goes rogue and the remaining assassins assemble, murder might be the only way to make things right.
