It’s been a long and winding road for the characters of Dragon Ball Z, but this is the final season. Dragon Ball Z is a show that I first approached with resistance, unwilling to accept that 5+ hour long fights could be anything but repetitive and dull. But it has gradually become more hospitable, if only for the fact that the show is demonstrably addictive. Set aside the fact that reviewing anime is one of the things I do for the site, this show would have sunk its claws into me and refused to let go no matter what. This final season

Running Time: 625 minutes

Certificate: PG

Picking up where Season 7 left off, Season 8 really should begin to crack under the pressure of continuing a fairly simplistic series for so long. In actual fact, this is one of the best seasons the show has to offer thanks to some amazing character development, interesting and meaningful fight sequences, and even sections of heartfelt emotion. It all begins with the regular gang of heroes travelling to take on the evil wizard Babidi, son of Bibidi, and yes there is also a Buu. Babidi wishes to awaken the ultimate fighter, Buu, in order to take over the word.

Dragon Ball Z Season 7 DVD Review

Dragon Ball Season 7 is one of those points in a long running anime that can be seen as an easy ‘jumping-in’ point. Whereas the last two seasons required lengthy mythology and background knowledge to receive much of the enjoyment, this season will welcome newcomers and reward dedicated fans alike. Season 6 was an incredibly long tournament based season, with much of the action focused around a single fight. Season 7 has a lot of tournaments to get through too, but it also gives a wide range of fights and competitors, as well as supplying us with some heartfelt character moments and exciting new storylines and characters.

Dragon Ball Z Season 6 DVD Review

Creator: Akira Toriyama

Starring: Masako Nozawa, Sean Schemmel, Daisuke Gouri, Stephanie Nadolny, Naoko Watanabe, Eric Vale, Miki Itou, Christopher R. Sabat, Ryo Horikawa, Dameon Clarke, Takeshi Kusao, Kyle Hebert, Toshio Furukawa, Sonny Strait, Jeremy Inman, Chuck Huber, Mike McFarland, Tiffany Volmer, Cynthia Cranz,

Running Time: 650 minutes

Certificate: 12

Dragon Ball Z Season 5 really grabbed my attention in terms of the complicated mythology it had to offer, as well as a wide range of interesting characters. By leaving that Season on a cliffhanger, I eagerly awaited a second bout with the long running anime. At the end of Season 5 the alien/android Cell had reached his final form, and had challenged the world’s fighters to a fighting tournament which would dictate the fate of our planet.

That’s right I’m afraid, this is a tournament based season, which means it’s lacking on plot but high on action, a little too high to be honest.

Naoko Watanabe to play porn actress Mihiro in new biopic

Last May, 27-year-old actress and popular adult video idol Mihiro came out with an autobiographical novel called nude. Now it’s been announced that her book is being turned into a movie.

Following Mihiro’s actual experiences, Naoko Watanabe (25) will star as a young woman named Hiromi who moves from Niigata to Tokyo to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. She’s eventually discovered on the street by an Av scout and decides to enter the adult entertainment industry under the stage name Mihiro against the objections of her boyfriend and others around her.

Mihiro started her career by appearing fully nude in “image videos”, the first of which was appropriately called “Dream: 19-year-old Mihiro”. She began starring in adult videos in 2005 and gained a fair amount of popularity which she’s recently parlayed into roles in non-porn films like Samurai Princess and 8000 Miles. Earlier this year, she announced
