Toei Animation, the Japanese animation house behind Dragon Ball Z has today launched the official website for the Dragon Ball Z 2013 Movie in English! The website sports the full teaser trailer for the movie, similar to the one we posted back in July.
The news is extremely exciting, at least Anime Games Online’s opinion! At this time only a Japanese release date of March 30, 2013 has been announced, but we feel that it certainly raises the chance for a worldwide release! An interesting tidbit of information – the Japanese version of the Dragon Ball Z 2013 Movie website, which opened in July, received hits from 178 countries! Japan was the top visiting country, with one quarter of the traffic coming from there. The rest, three quarters worth, came from overseas! The top country visiting the website after Japan was the USA followed by Brazil, Mexico, France, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Spain, and the United Kingdom!
