there were at least two other dbz movies released in the past 2-3 years, and not a word on their official release by funimation, does that not make you think of a few things?

from what I've heard fox has first dibs on any dbz movie that comes out from japan.

also i cant say that I care as much for these movies..... I saw bog, it was cool. but nothing new really, to the mindless masses that are dbz fans its got to be [expletive] gold...

This is the first DBZ movie to come out since 1995 (in Japan).

The other two "movies" are actually OVAs (Episode of Bardock, Goku & Friends Return, which was first screened at a Shonen Jump event). We did get a remake of "Plan to Destroy the Saiyans" in 2010 as an extra on Raging Blast 2, but that was subtitled-only (FUNimation had nothing to do with that, other than being contracted to voice the dialogue in the game itself), despite fans clamoring for an English dub of the original for years. Blame Namco-Bandai (or is it Bandai-Namco?).

It's been assumed Bills is voiced by Jason Douglas and Whis by Ian Sinclair.

If you play as Whis, do you automatically win?

Birisu's English voice is completely terrible. Big shock.

Hard to say from that vid, but you should hear him in One Piece and Rosario + Vampire. He's good there. And I think everyone likes Ilpillazo from Excel Saga.

It's not the VA's fault. He was just miscast.

We also got Episode Of Bardock as it was included as an extra in the DBZ Kinect game.

Yes, it looks like Europe is getting a physical release of the Vita version too.

I can't really answer the second question, but I imagine so.
