In May 2018, V-Jump announced a promotional anime for Dragon Ball Heroes, a Japanese arcade and trading card game that has never been released in the West. The anime is expected to be short and it is not expected to broadcast on TV. It will adapt the game's Prison Planet Arc, fully detailed in the Heroes manga published in Saikyou Jump, which has never been published in English. The first episode will debut July 1, 2018 at Aeon Lake Town.
“It’s all about that money, son.” — Fake quote from Akira Toriyama
The following is a fictitious interview with the creator of Dr. Slump, Wonder Island, and, umm……..oh yeah, Go! Go! Ackman. Today he will be discussing the next installment in a franchise concerning a lot of balls, and just one dragon (and no, that is not a porn reference — unless you want it to be!). The unquestioned G.O.A.T of the anime industry, Akira Toriyama.
“So, Akira—” Interviewer.
“Don’t use my name, you unworthy pleb. Simply call me: Almighty.” AT.
“Okay, Almighty. What is the intended direction of Dragon Ball Heroes
and the series as a whole?” Interviewer.
“In my younger years, I believed in fruitless concepts, like: strong narratives, character development, and interesting plot twists — but no more! Nowadays, I think only of capital accumulation, by any means necessary. You wanna see SSJ4 Goku vs. SSJ God Goku, done. You want Goku with pink hair and a black outfit, done. If those bastards at Marvel didn’t have the rights to Superman, I’d have Goku fight that weak-ass Mofo, too. Whatever generates that Robert De Niro, I’ll do it!” AT.
“Don’t you mean: dinero, as in money?” Interviewer.
“Shut you mouth, fool. I know what I said.” AT
“Duly noted. Can you elaborate on any of the details of Dragon Ball Heroes?” Interviewer.
“The prison planet is a metaphor for the fans of the series. They are all ensnared consumers, trapped in a perpetual transfer of wealth from their pockets to my mansion. Dumb money, if I ever saw it; although, it’s my money now.” AT
“Truly inspirational. Any other comments before we end this interview, Almighty?” Interviewer.
“Mai waifu is money. I luv dat bish, long time!” AT
Cash accumulation — 10/10
Money growth — 10/10
Lining thy pockets — 10/10
Rich to even richer — 10/10
Money baller 4 life — 10/10
If you are a die hard Dragon Ball fan like me, don't get your hopes up.
Where will I begin. Let's see all the characters from Z to GT are here even from the movies. Check. A big plus BUT the storyline is crap. Why bother made it into an anime??? Let's be honest here: It has both SS4 and SSB Goku and they fought. What?!?! It is only for 20 secs and all they did was a little fight like in a form of greeting, this is when the enjoyment died. And it was only 8 mins. long. PWEH!!!
The characters are awesome.
They have Cooler and SS4 Goku and it gave me a goosebumps. The villain, Fu is quite intimidating (if he gains spotlight) because he has this smart and dangerous aura. The art is kinda clumsy but it's good in its own way. Like I said, the enjoyment doesn't lit a light to me.
Probably the next episode be the last and that's OK because I don't want to see the franchise to get downhill since DB Super. So that's it. If you are gonna watch it, just bear it. You might enjoy it. If not, well we're on the same page.
A MUST SEE ANIME FOR THE FANS WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. WASTED POTENTIAL.
All right, first off this shouldn't be getting the amount of grief that it has been. A single episode and everyone flips. You were all expecting this amazing battle between Xeno Goku vs Goku, um, no that's not how it was supposed to be. Look into it more and you'll see that their main battle doesn't happen yet.
Yes, this episode is 8 minutes long. People don't seem to realize what this is, it's a PROMO, it isn't supposed to be an official series or blow your socks off. That being said, it still doesn't deserve the negativity it's been getting.
The story setup was great, it
really setup a great foundation of how everything will be and what this series will be like. It had great suspense and really will pull this all together well. Art was clean and beautiful all the way through and the soundtrack was great. Character was a bit, eh, for me. As Goku (Super) and Goku (Xeno) acted too different. They honestly should be more the same if they are indeed the same person.
I did enjoy this and yes, I was a bit shocked and bummed out at how short it was. But you know, does that make it bad? Does that mean I'm going to rate it badly? No. It was still good and I'll give it an honest review. Roughly 9/10 for episode 1. I can't wait to see what's next.
Don't watch it , it's a trash , you'll be waisting ur time , specially if you are a dragin ball fan you'll be so disapointed , if you wanna watch somehing just wait for the upcoming movie but don't you watch this !!
the story idea seemed good when i heard about it first but when i watched the first episode it seemed like it's for 10yo kids cartoon the conversation between characters are so childish , so many thiings happen at once and no one asks how or why it is just like that , some things are so obivious but they try to
make it like if it's not.
