Dragon Ball Z Cleans Up On The Weekend

We recently reported on the eve of the first Dragon Ball Z movie in 17 years and the anticipation and expectation that this movie would perform well at the box office.

Well, those fears can be put to bed with the movie, Dragon Ball Z: Kami to Kami (“Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods”), opening up on the past weekend in Japan and raking in the cash. The film opened on March 30th across 312 screens taking in ¥683,925,000 or approximately $US7.1 million. In terms of how many people saw the film in its opening weekend, that translates to 561,098 eager DBZ fans who flocked to the cinemas. The movie also marks the first film to be shown in digital IMAX in Japan.

Speaking with Toei, the compadbz charactersny behind the movie, they’re expecting to movie to go on and make ¥3 billion, that’s a lot of DBZ fans however it’s entirely possible this will happen with this opening weekend completely eclipsing the figure the last two One Piece movies took in.

Word on the street is that the movie itself is actually quite good although some viewers have been heard reporting that there’s quite a lot of comedy and not so many of the over the top fight sequences that the series is revered for. But one thing that everyone agreed on was that the movie looked gorgeous with both artwork and colour, this is being helped along by the advancements in animation over the past 17 years.

Awesome One Piece Bento Boxes

School kids in Japan are so lucky, apart from having a healthy nutritious lunch, they get to have it presented in a way that only a few of us will see.

One lucky child in Japan whose mother also happens to be a doctor, takes the time out to make her son a different One Piece bento box. Every day. She also takes time out to run a blog in which provided instructions on how she puts it all together so readers can also take part in the fun.

Just feast your eyes on the images below, the bento boxes look amazing and they’re all edible, truly fantastic. She also dabbles in some other franchises such as Nintendo’s Mario, Dragon Ball Z and a couple more. What a cool mum! If you want to check out her Japanese blog, you can click here.
