Dragon Ball fans, rejoice! Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F (which has been translated in various ways, either as the Revival/Resurrection of F or The Resurrected F) received a new Japanese blog this past Thursday in order to promote the film. The blog is written in-character as Bulma, and she has been counting down each of the 59 days until the film releases on April 18 in Japan in 3D IMAX and normal format theaters. Though 59 seems to be an odd number to begin a countdown, “5-9” is actually read “Go-ku” in Japanese, so the number was clearly more clever than traditional. Over the next few weeks, Bulma will show off new artwork, feature cast and crew comments about the film, as well as feature and interview other characters. On the blog post for 58, Bulma even talks to Goku:
But didn’t the Trunks from the future dice Frieza up into tiny bits?!
They put all the little pieces of his body back together using a whatchamacallit machine, seems like.
And on top of that, since he was defeated by me and Trunks, he’s got a huge grudge, and to win against me, he attacked after gaining the strength to progress/evolve further beyond his four transformations.
Fukkatsu no F is the follow-up to 2013’s Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, which was released in select theaters and on DVD/Blu-ray in North America in 2014. Dragon Ball mangaka Akira Toriyama has been involved in penning the story like he did with the 2013 film, and he considers both films to be an official continuation of the manga, unlike many of the other films. Tadayoshi Yamamuro, a longtime animation supervisor and character designer for the franchise, will be directing the film and supervising the animation, while Norihito Sumimoto will be returning as the score composer. Both Maximum the Hormone and Momoiro Clover V will be providing songs for the film, as well. Fukkatsu no F involves the resurrection of arguably the most famous Dragon Ball Z villain, Frieza. Beerus and Whis from Battle of Gods will be returning, and other characters both new and old will appear. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long to see a Western release!
