One Piece, Toriko, and Dragon Ball Z all in the same universe! It’s happening in video games thanks to Namco Bandai’s J-Stars Victory Vs and as we announced here on Anime Games Online back in February, it’s happening in anime too! Titled “Dream 9 Toriko & One Piece & Dragon Ball Z Chō Collaboration Special”, the special will air for one hour, comprised of two parts in Japan on Sunday, April 7 at 9:00 AM – Part 1: “Run, Strongest Army! Toriko, Luffy, Goku!” and Part 2: “History’s Strongest Collaboration vs. Glutton of the Sea.”
Special Spoilers In part 1, the International Gourmet Organization is sponsoring a race where the winner gets a rare piece of meat. Goku, Luffy, and Toriko, all food fanatics, decide to join and compete in the race. Then in part 2, the winner comes out to be not Goku, or Luffy, or Toriko, but Hercule Satan from Dragon Ball Z! However, the purpose of the race wasn’t to award rare and delicious meat. Unknowing to our heroes, it was to lure power-sucking creatures out of the deep sea!
Anyways, below is first footage of the Dragon Ball Z x One Piece x Toriko Anime special. As you will see, a handful of favorites from each respective series make an appearance!
