Wait, Why Didn't All This Cool Dragon Ball Stuff Happen at Anime Expo?

In what seems to be a calculated slight against AX, the Dragon Ball World Tour starts at Comic-Con. This awesome event that did not take place in LA, but will go to San Diego, (piff) to a convention that is not fully about anime, sounds great. So, it really sucks in comparison to Dragon Ball's presence at AX this year.

Here's what going on from the press release, including a Guinness World Record attempt at doing a Kamehameha together. I say AX tries to do it next year to take away from San Diego. Screw them.

And I get what Fun doesn't care if the event takes place in LA, they're Texas based. Toei, whose a part of this, says the division handling this is LA based. I'm guessing they're from New York, so they don't care for LA. Why else would you not start this here in LA?

Oh, look New York is on the tour list, but not LA. (Snicker)


Dragon Ball Guinness World Records Attempt
Come be a part of Dragon Ball and Guinness World Records history! The 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure will open with a special Guinness World Records attempt to become the largest gathering of people simultaneously performing the iconic Kamehameha super energy attack move.

The first 1,000 participants to arrive will receive a free Dragon Ball Scouter accessory to wear during the Guinness World Records attempt.
