They have to do something with the Dragonball money.

Maybe if they'd spend some of that money not dicking over the brittish fans, I'd be more inclined to care.

This sounds extremely exciting to me, and it's good to know this is still viable in the current economic climate.

I can't wait to see what comes of this!

It's more than that. In Europe and Asia, the local studios are improving their infrastructure to attract foreign investments. Being one of the Japan's oldest film business, Toei knows that they can't rely on domestic sales alone. Foreign invest is important because production budget of film and animation is steadily increasing and they can't make state-of-the-art films and animations with outdated equipments and infrastructure.
