Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Character Art, Updated Cast

Posted on January 22, 2013

Toei Animation has released Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods character art featuring a host of your favorites, including Goku and Vegeta! In case you are wondering why everybody is dressed up, well, it’s because they are celebrating Bulma’s birthday!


Additionally, they’ve released an updated cast of voice actors that features the Japanese voice actors of Dragon Ball Kai, most of which who were part of the original Dragon Ball Z cast. The characters not in Kai (Buu, Pilaf, Shu, Mai) will have the voice actors from the original Japanese Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z series reprising their roles! The only exception is Chiaotzu, who’s voice actor has not been revealed. It’s expected, however, his Japanese DBZ and Dragon Ball Kai, Hiroko Emori, will take on the role.
