This is kind of hilarious and awesome. Can't wait to see it for myself... sometime... next year, probably.

As an aside, as you can probably see from that picture, Masako Nozawa is so, so rad. I've had the privilege of meeting her, and she's just one the nicest, funniest people you can ever hope to meet. It's amazing to me that she still does such a great job voicing Goku, and seems to have fun doing it on top of that.

I patiently waited for Battle of Gods to get an English dub since the movie itself was a cool little nostalgia trip and I much more fondly remember the English version. But this? This is something I've gotta see! I've always wanted to see Momoclo voice anime characters.

Another reason I waited on the dub was because I thought BoG was a special one time thing (By the time this movie was announced I'd already bought my tickets to see BoG dubbed at the cinema) but this time around I haven't really got any reason to wait.

That's so awesome! Lucky you, I'm also jealous . I was going to post and say she must be everything you said and the coolest grandma ever.

"everyone threw beans at Frieza"

All I thought was DBZ Abridged.

So Goku's shoes are confirmed? Cool.

That Goku mask would be cool for cosplay at a convention.

There's a picture of the angels available too.

They look like a bunch of Gatchans. (Y'know, from Dr. Slump, Toriyama's other hit manga.)

I still feel Nozawa is a bad choice for adult Goku as he sounds too girly.

Are we really going down this road again?

Agreed. Repeating the statement over and over again on different boards isn't good for discussion, in my opinion.

Usually, I don't like those kind of publicity stunts, where [big name] is getting a role in [show's name] just because of the former's popularity, but since their roles is of minor, tertiary characters (at least that what is sounds like), I'm OK with it.

The idols will play "angels" of hell, where the protagonist Son Goku's enemy Frieza has been imprisoned.

Just a thought here, but won't the words [minions] or [guardians] be a better fit? Confused

No, it's supposed to be Angels of Hell, they're cutesy little Angels, because that's how you torture Freeza:

The new movies are supposed to be canon right? It'll be interesting to see how they portray hell here? I wonder if they'll include Goz and Mez

Unlikely. The characters themselves are public domain ("Ox-Head" and "Horse-Face", guardians of Hell), but they only appeared in the Dragon Ball Z TV show. They're not Toriyama's doing.
