**This is our first contest in a format such as this one. We decided to limit the options for multiple reasons. We wanted to see what type of art artists can come up with under these specific rules. Two, we don’t really know what to expect in terms of how many people are going to enter. We have over 50k followers across our various media outlets, so having character specific rules makes it a lot easier to compare art on a smaller scale even if we get, say, 1000 entries. We will be doing more contests such as this one, but this is just to test the water. Hope you understand!**

Rremember, only artwork tagged with the hashtag, #dbzcrossovercontest will be considered!!

Enjoy and good luck!

Battle of Gods UK Home Release to Contain Extended Cut

Some retailer websites have already begun displaying lisitings for Manga UK’s home video release of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. The home release will consist of a double disc edition of the movie, containing both the original theatrical cut of the film, and the special extended edition, which was seen on Fuji TV in Japan. Excitement roars as we will finally be able to see some really cool “deleted” scenes in the extended version’s home release of the film, such as brief flashbacks of Son Goku’s most notorious fights from Dragon Ball, all the way up to the Boo Arc!

This double disc edition includes both the 85 minute Theatrical Cut and the 105 minute Director’s Cut. Both versions include the English and Japanese dubs and English subtitles. This edition also includes bonus content including “The Voices of Dragon Ball Z: Unveiled” and “Behind The Scenes: Battle of Voice Actors!”.

Battle of Gods

In another listing, a “Collector’s Edition” of the film is revealed. This special collectors edition Blu-ray comes with, “4 collectable art cards and a limited edition o-card.”

This now validates that the images Sean Schemmel (American voice actor for Goku) posted on Twitter indicating that the extended cut of the film was being recorded was true. Schemmel’s tweets would later be removed presumably by FUNimation’s suggestion.

After extending the North American theatrical tour of Battle of Gods to August 12, (and in some parts of North America from the 14th to the 17th), it concludes at last in what is believed to have a been a great success for the first Dragon Ball Z movie to hit North American theaters! However, no home release has been announced as of yet.

Manga UK expects to release the long awaited film later this year on the 10th of November on both DVD and Blu-Ray.

Thanks to the Kanzenshuu members for the good find.
