Next screening? “Dragon Ball Super: Broly”

Today we dip our toes in the subculture of “Dragon Ball,” cult anime films with a supernatural bent that are — judging from Internet forums and Youtube collaters — valued for their drawn-animated “fights.”

I’ve channel surfed into at least one of the TV incarnations more than once, but dismissed it pretty quickly because of the animation quality. Pretty sure I caught an earlier “Dragon Ball Z” movie at one of the newspapers I used to work for.

Broly the blonde villain gets another movie in this manga turned TV shows turned 20 cult film series.

As the vast majority of people “reviewing” these films seem to be in the cult, let’s see if I can bring fresh eyes to the story, characters, dialogue (English dubbed) and animation. And not get death threats for so doing.
