It’s been 18 years since the last Dragon Ball anime, Dragon Ball GT, concluded in Japan. And let’s be honest, a lot of fans would like to forget that series ever aired. The series is not considered to be canon and had very little input from the original series creator. A few years ago the Kai series began, which cuts out much of the fluff and filler from Dragon Ball Z and also redraws many scenes to give the show a shiny new coat. But not we are about to get an all new anime titled Dragon Ball Chou. Chou can be translated to “super” and it seems that the english title will infect be “Dragon Ball Super.”
Dragon Ball Chou will take place after the events of the Majin Buu saga, the last saga in the Dragon Ball Z series. It hasn’t been confirmed if it will take place before or after the recent movies Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’, which are considered cannon. But like the movies, series creator Akira Toriyama will over see the new series and be heavily involved.
In an official press release from Toei Animation, Masako Nozawa, voice actress for Goku, Gohan, Gotten, and Bardock, had this to say. “I’ve used the word ‘cho’ (super) in so many commercials, games and other media, it is fantastic that the long awaited Dragon Ball Super will finally begin. I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor.”
Osamu Nozaki, a producer at Fuji TV said, “As I read the plot I’ve a;ready received from Akira Toriyama, my dreams for this begin to expand. An enemy even stronger than Buu or Freeza may appear…”
Dragon Ball Chou is set to air this July on Fuji TV on Sundays at 9:00 am.
AMC revealed a Season 5 trailer for The Walking Dead at San Diego Comic Con.
I don’t know about anyone else, but this trailer gets me excited for the new season. Although I’ve been iffy on the show this trailer gives me a lot of hope for the new season with a lot of odes to the comics.
The Walking Dead is set to return on Sunday, October 12th at 9pm on AMC.

With each and every clip, I get more and more excited for when I can get my hands on Attack on Titan – Part 1 with the English dubbing. Whether I get the Collector’s Edition, Limited Edition, or Standard Edition is still up in the air.
I’m pretty happy with this clip! It wasn’t what I necessarily expected Levi to sound like, but it still fits him and his personality. The same goes for Hanji. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Just in time for the premiere of Season 4 of Game of Thrones, Black Milk Clothing has released a huge line of clothing inspired by the popular HBO series. The new collection features dresses, leggings, bathing suits, skirts and tops.
Black Milk Clothing is well known for making leggings and body-con dresses with geeky themes such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. The new Game of Thrones collection has a lot more variety and more styles to flatter different body types.
News came about just a few days ago that Anime Limited has gained the license for the original soundtrack for the popular anime series Attack on Titan. The soundtrack contains 16 tracks, both inserts and background music, from the anime all composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, who has also composed songs for Gundam Unicorn, Guilty Crown and Kill la Kill. Songs include Attack On Titan, The Reluctant Heroes, Call Your Name, Eye-Water, Counter Attack-Mankind, and Rittaikidou.
We can expect a physical CD release later this summer, but as of right now, you can buy and download the entire soundtrack from all of the popular digital music stores, such as iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
Jessica DeGouw (Dracula) will be reprising her role as The Huntress in an upcoming episode of CW’s hit DC Comics show Arrow.
The episode, titled Birds of Preyis set to air on Wednesday, March 26th, and Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim told TVGuide “We consider Jessica a member of the Arrow family and we’re looking forward to having her back for an episode everyone will be talking about after.”
Fans of DC Comics know that the Bird of Prey are a group of Heroines who’ve had multiple incarnations over the years; though their most famous version featured The Huntress, Oracle, and Black Canary (who is currently on Arrow).
This certainly sounds like it’ll be an incredible episode, especially considering that The Huntress’ story on the show left off with her failing to kill her crime boss father,Ollie’s then girlfriend Detective McKenna was inujred in the process.
