This absolutely has to be the year that the world is going to end because news like this is just too good to be true. Anime nerds around the world have begun to rejoice over the news of Dragonball Z creator Akira Toriyama has confirmed there will be another DBZ movie. This time however they’re going back to anime since we all know how well the live-action adaptation did.

Originally thought of as nothing more than a wish from a floating dragon, Toriyama has said that the ball has already begun rolling, and they’re currently involved in the screenwriting process. And best of all: it’s going to be canon!

Apparently, this new animated movie will take place between the Majin Buu saga and the epilogue, set 10 years after the final major fight in the series. For those keeping track, this is between chapters 517 and 518 of the Japanese manga, so you hardcore Dragonball fans will already know about this. Sure, every movie that has been made in accordance to the anime was ridiculous (except the one where Goku gets punched in the dragon balls), but it’ll still be better than the crap they pulled with Dragonball Evolution.

Be sure to expect its release on March 30, 2013 (even if you can’t read Japanese you can still know what a date is). Are you excited for another round of constant yelling and awkwardly long stare downs between two super powered space aliens?
