After a lengthy journey to acquire all seven mystical Dragon Balls, London-based distributor Manga Entertainment used their one wish in a way that will no doubt appease fans of Akira Toriyama’s cult franchise. Dragon Ball Super and a collection of Dragon Ball movies are finally coming to the UK!
Starting on 23 October, Manga Entertainment will release Dragon Ball Z Movie Collection One as a DVD/Blu-ray combo-pack, which will include the feature films Dead Zone and The World’s Strongest. Collection Two (Tree of Might/Lord Slug) and Collection Three (Cooler’s Revenge/Return of Cooler) will be available later this year, with more to follow in 2018. The SRP for Collection One, is £24.99.
Manga Entertainment describes the films, as follows:
Garlic Jr. is on the hunt for the seven Dragon Balls, and Gohan lands on the hit list when he refuses to surrender his own magic orb! Goku is ready to fight to save his son, but the situation takes a dire turn after the pint-sized villain summons Shenron and wishes for immortality! Next stop, the Dead Zone!
The World’s Strongest:
After his cunning assistant gathers the Dragon Balls, the sinister Dr. Wheelo is finally freed from his icy tomb. The deadly duo plans to conquer the world with their brilliant biotechnology, but first they must find a body worthy of the doctor’s amazing brain! Number one on the wish list – none other than Goku!
Then a week later on 30 October, Dragon Ball Super Season 1 Part 1 will release on both DVD and Blu-ray, which will include episodes 1-13. The next set, will then be released on 29 January 2018. The DVD will be available with an SRP of £24.99, with £29.99 for the Blu-ray.
Manga Entertainment describes Dragon Ball Super as follows:
