    The set pictures, the ones with Goku...he looks so plain.

    I hate to say it but I agree. I hope they don't turn Goku into a nerdy socially awkward teenager. He needs to be a happy go lucky country bumpkin.

    Here's the pics for anyone wondering.

    I'm guessing they won't go with a tailed Goku either.

    I just got this awful feeling that this is gonna be Dragonball meets Smallville. Which was Superman meets Dawson's Creek.

    So therefore this is Dragonball meets Dawson's Creek.

    I really hope this is good, but after seeing those pictures of Goku, I've lost a little heart.

    But I don't see why everyone is all upset about them making it not fit into the DB 'storyline' since all of the animated movies don't either.

    Edit: Best friend has been cast, a 'nerdy know it all'. And apparently this is a trilogy.

    Krillin is a know it all, but nerdy?

    I can forsee this being either okay, or so bad it's good.
    I have a few ideas that would make those screenshots not so painful, but it's a stretch.

    Well, he does kinda have a nasally voice in the dub. But that's about as far as the nerdy thing goes.

    It's not Krillin.

    It's a new character, name "Teto."

    There's a post on that blog about the hair.
    Justin Chatwin wont wear a wig because his hair is "already like Goku's".

    What? If the image on the previous page isn't before make-up, I'll crack. I mean, come on, young Goku's hair was about the height of his torso!

    On a brighter note, though:
    Most of the female characters (both lead and extras) will have unique hairstyles. Most notibly Emmy Rossum, Bulma, will wear a blue wig.

    I'm probably going to see this in theatres. I have to have hope.

    If it sucks, then I'll just print off a copy of the DVD release's cover art and stick it on a Freeza Saga box set. It'd be better for all involved.

    Why do they even need to do that?

    Maybe they want to increase the human element in the saga. After all, 3/4 of the DB cast is either an alien or a humanoid of sorts (Tien's third eye, whatever the hell Chiaotzu is supposed to be). There's always this hollywood bullshit about how audiences never connect to the non-human characters, even if they're the leads. Hence why Sam got more screentime despite everyone and their mother telling him to move the fuck over and let Optimus have the spotlight.

    That said, I hope this guy isn't a literal substitute for Krillin. I demand my lovable noseless bald monk who holds the record for most deaths overall (5 if you're wondering).

    And you guys best brace yourself for whatever they do for Goku's hair, because there's no way they're going to do a literal recreation.

    Which is too bad, because I would have loved to see them attempt Raditz' hairdo. O_o

    5 deaths.... hmm.
    Died in the Vegeta/ Nappa fight... died in the Namek saga from Freeza... died fighting Cell and Buu?
    I tink I might have to rewatch this series, because my 12 year old memories are not serving me well.

    According to Wikipedia he died in Dragonball by a henchman of Piccolo Daimao (evil Piccolo I'm guessing). He then got whacked by Freeza (triggering the rage needed to go Super Saiya-Jin by Goku). He gets killed and eaten by Buu.

    That's three. Did he die in the movies?

    No, he definately died in that fight. I think. Because he had to go to King Kai? Or was that just everyone else?

    I remember it being a trio of Tien, Yamcha and Chaozu(butchered?) Krillian might have after being killed by Freiza to kill time or something, I dunno. But he survived Vegeta because I remember him laying there battered and bruised. Thumbs up and all that.

    I wish it was good. I was optimistic for Transformers, then I saw Megatron. Still optimistic. Then I saw the movie, and it was just shit. Thank god for the cartoons (the new one starts on Wednesday!)

    I was optimistic for this. So optimistic, that my brother and I started watching Dragon Ball again last week (this time in its original Japanese), as well as playing the crap out of Tenkaichi 3 for the Wii.

    We're still watching Dragon Ball (then Dragon Ball Z in original form!), but this movie is looking worse and worse.

    I thought this would be the revival of Dragon Ball [Z]. I was hoping -- even though there was zero chance of it happening -- that the awesomeness of the movie would inspire Akira Toriyama to continue the manga. After all, GT was a [non-canon] piece of fanfic-like shit, and Z is the true ending, and I'd love to see Akira continue the manga, thus spurring a new anime series.

    I know, I know, the chances of that are next to zero, but still... I thought this movie was going to rock. Like someone earlier said, it's looking to be Dragon Ball meets Dawson's Creek.

    Hopefully Christopher Nolan will come along in ten years and reboot the movies!

    I know what some of your are thinking: "Dude, you haven't even seen a trailer yet! Shut the fuck up!"

    Well, I have one word for you: Teto.

    He got killed in GT by Android 17. And it was lame.

    He died fighting Radditz ( he held him while Piccolo blasted them both), and was rasied just in time to fight Nappa and Vegeta.

    Of course, my friend who is a total snob about it, says ot me "Well no, it's not a valid cmoparison becasue the group is not the same and there's no robin and blah blah blah I completely missed the fucking point."

    About Krillin (and this is purely from memory, big fanboy here).

    Dragonball:

    1. Killed by Tamborine, King Piccolo's henchman.

    Dragonball Z:

    2. Killed by Frieza.

    3. Killed by the Androids in Trunks' future (this counts since Trunks' timeline was never changed, he only created an alternate timeline where everyone but Goku survived).

    4. Eaten by Boo, killed when Boo blows up the whole planet (well actually, I'm unclear if he was trapped along with Piccolo, Goten, Gohan, and Trunks, but regardless, he died anyway).

    Dragonball GT:

    5. Killed by Android 17.

    Also, Krillin might actually be tied with Chiaotzu for most deaths overall. Let's see here.

    Dragonball:

    1. Killed by King Piccolo.

    Dragonball Z:

    2. Sacrifices himself to destroy Nappa (and only dented his armor a little).

    3. Killed during Trunks' timeline by the Androids.

    4. Killed by default when Boo destroys the earth (note, this event also guarantees all other mortal characters have died at least once, not counting anyone born afterwards like Pan, and one other character who never died even once in the whole series. Take a guess who).

    Since he never dies in GT, Krillin has him beat by one additional death. Good job! ^_^

    Daimo was actually Piccolo's "father". Daimo had been locked away in a bottle of sorts for a long time, until Pilaf and his henchmen set him free. He then proceeded to try to take over the world with his henchmen (all named after musical instruments btw)seeking out the Dragonballs. Krillin dies after the second tournament, which sets Goku out to get revenge.

    Man, I'm sure it's been said, but Dragon Ball is just so much fucking better than Z. And I'm a fan of Z.

    I see Piccolo Junior as being more of a clone than a son. He's always been treated as pretty much the same character especially with the Kame stuff.

    Technically he's a clone, but King Piccolo does refer to him as "my son". This also serves to give Piccolo Jr a clean slate, since he doesn't kill any humans or do anything too evil before the Raditz fight. So basically he's kind of a resurrected offspring.

    By the way, it seems that Mai has been cast for the movie, which is pretty surprising given what a minor character she is in the series. Perhaps they'll switch gears and make her King Piccolo's henchwoman instead of Pilaf. I just wonder if Shou will still be her partner. No word yet on any of the animal characters.

    Everytime I think I know who hasn't died, I remember that they did.

    The only one I can think of is that rabbit king or whatever from Dragonball, that Goku sent up there to make candy or whatever. But technically, the moon did get blown up.
