Madman Acquires Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods
Posted @ September 20th, 2013

Madman is proud to announce the acquisition of the latest feature in the evergreen DRAGON BALL Z franchise, DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF THE GODS.

DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF THE GODS is the first DRAGON BALL Z movie to receive a Japanese theatrical release in 17 years, and with original manga creator, Akira Toriyama heavily involved, the first film in the series to be considered an official part of the original DRAGON BALL manga storyline.

When Birus, The God of Destruction awakes from a long slumber, he learns of the defeat of the galactic overlord Freeza by the hands of Son Goku. Seeking an opponent worthy of his power, Birus, along with his companion Uis, travels to the North Quadrant of the universe to challenge Goku to a battle.

Shooting straight to the number one spot in its opening week at the Japanese box-office, DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF THE GODS took in over $7 million USD and sold over 500,000 tickets in just two days. The film has since become the fastest-grossing film of 2013 in Japan, earning a total of US$30 million [2.9 billion Yen].

One of the most beloved manga and anime brands in the world, DRAGON BALL and DRAGON BALL Z have a rich cultural history spanning two decades, significantly boosting the popularity of Japanese animation in Western culture and influencing multiple generations of fans.

In Australia, DRAGON BALL Z has enjoyed a regular television broadcast across Channel 10 and Cartoon Network and has sold in excess of one million units across DVD and VHS formats alone.

DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF THE GODS will premiere at the 17th Japanese Film Festival, touring Australia Oct – Dec, 2013. For more information, visit www.japanesefilmfestival.net.

DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF THE GODS will also screen in select cinemas in 2014.

Worth mentioning in this thread. It will be interesting to see if they release anything beyond what FUNimation has released.

Madman also has its stuff on sale.

Like the 2 Nichijou sets for $43.99 each and the 2 CCS TV sets for $43.99 each.

I'll definitely be getting in on this. I can't recall Chaos doing a 20% off sale before.

Damn, I really want to get Tatami Galaxy. Maybe I'll ask for a region free player for Xmas Wink.

If you have a computer with a DVD-ROM drive then you most likely have something that can play it with VideoLan player aka VLC.

I'm guessing the free S/H extends to the US? (I'm not familiar with the website). If so, then I'll most likely take advantage of this.

Anyone have experience ordering from Chaos?

I've ordered from Chaos on 3 occasions. Never had a problem with them. Though I remember somebody was getting an error message when trying to check out the last time I recommended them. And yes, that applies to free shipping to the US.

Thanks for the tip, I'll keep it in mind when I eventually get a good desktop PC. The laptop I use now is a giant POS! Laughing

The same applies to the UK.. only we have to spend £60 to get free shipping (97 USD) ^^;
If they're shipping from Australia there'd also be VAT and "handling" fees...
