The article also goes on to state that In February, Toei Animation and Funimation are going to have a 30th anniversary collectible home video release announcement, this summer Toei is going to partner with Overlook to host a “Dragon Ball Z” symphony concert in the U.S. and Canada. The audience can listen to the symphony while clips from the show play, allowing fans to see the story on-screen with live music.

And in July, Toei and Bandai plan to bring “Dragon Ball” back to Comic-Con in a big way following the success of its appearance last year, which included the “Dragon Ball” takeover of the convention’s adjacent Marriott hotel.

This was the first time there was such a big push for anime at San-Diego Comic-Con, at first we were very skeptical about how people were going to respond because we felt it is a Hollywood-focused kind of event. But San Diego Comic-Con told us they wanted us back. We thought anime was too niche to do so well, but we are planning on a bigger presence, says Lisa Yamatoya, senior manager of marketing and licensing for Toei Animation.

The article continues onto say, Toei will also bring the “Dragon Ball” Franchise to Anime Expo, Crunchyroll Expo and New York Comic con this year. And in November, Toei will once again participate in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as it did last year with its massive Goku ballon.

As the year continues to roll out, many more licensed deals surrounding “Dragon Ball Z’s” milestone anniversary will be announced.

“It’s safe to say the beloved series will continue to flourish uncontrollably-a true triumph for Toei Animation. Perhaps the reason “Dragon Ball Z” resonates so well with fans, young and old, is because of the positive, inspiring theme behind its story. When faced with incredible adversity, Goku trains tirelessly and tackles huge challenges to transform himself into an immense superpower that defends Earth with undying heroism and altruism. And we can all appreciate and draw inspiration from such a noble endeavor.”
