Flow to Cover Dragon Ball Z TV Anime's Theme Song for Upcoming Film
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The J-Pop band Flow will perform the theme song "Cha-La Head-Cha-La" for the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods (Dragon Ball Z: Kami to Kami) film. Hironobu Kageyama previously sang the song as the first opening theme for the original Dragon Ball Z television anime series.
Flow has previously performed theme songs for Naruto, Naruto Shippūden, Code Geass, Eureka Seven, Eureka 7: Astral Ocean, Persona -trinity soul-, Beelzebub, and Heroman.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is set between the 517th and 518th installments of Akira Toriyama's original manga. Specifically, it is set during the "lost decade" of story time after the end of the battle with Majin Buu. Kuririn, Piccolo, Vegeta, Gohan, and other familar characters will appear in the film with an all-star cast. The film is not a spinoff, but a story in the official history of Dragon Ball.
Akira Toriyama has been deeply involved in the film's story and designs from the early screenwriting stages. Masahiro Hosoda (Dragon Ball Z episode director, Nangoku Shounen Papuwa-kun) is directing at Toei off a script by Yūsuke Watanabe (live-action 20th Century Boys trilogy, Gantz, Bloody Monday, Future Diary). The film features the new characters Birusu — the God of Destruction played by Kouichi Yamadera — and Wisu (Masakazu Morita).
The film will open in Japan on March 30.
