Piccolo cream puffs, Vegeta green salad to be sold at LAWSON convenience stores through April 8

Japanese convenience store chain LAWSON revealed the themed foods that it would be selling at its Ministop stores in collaboration with the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie from March 5 to April 8. The stores began selling Dragon Ball pizza balls, Super Saiyan fries, Demon King Piccolo's Green Tea Cream Puffs, and a Dragon Balls You-Eat-With-A-Spoon dessert on Tuesday. Upcoming foods include Majin Buu Milk Pudding on Wednesday, Krillin Whipped Cream and Chestnut Cream Bread on March 25, and Vegeta's Green Salad on March 26.

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).
